|Nov-26-16|| ||ewan14: Just for the record I have never played the Scandinavian Defence in my life
|Nov-26-16|| ||Nina Myers: ITS NEVR 2 L8!|
|Nov-26-16|| ||ewan14: This is true
I am losing faith in the French Defence
|Nov-26-16|| ||ewan14: Geoff,some of us need a really early night to play in Dunfermline tomorrow|
|Dec-01-16|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Ewan,
Sorry for the delay in replying, I never visit my own page, too distressing.
it's called the 'Centre Counter'. The Scandinavian, sometimes abbreviated by idiots to 'the Scando', is a chess player who comes from Scandinovia (where ever that is).
I've started playing it after a 6 years lay off because I've forgotten all my theory and that is one opening you can make up as you go along...which when I come to think of it is how my opening theory used to go as well.
Hope you had a good nights sleep.
|Mar-13-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi HeMateMe,
Tarrantula (sic) was folk trio formed after I learned my faithful three chords. We played Dylan stuff.
Vic Vomit was formed in a pub across the road from a new pub that was a converted theatre it still had a stage.
The management thought it would be good to use the stage. 4-5 bands played that night.
We played punked up versions of famous songs: 'Green Green Grass of Home', Please Release Me...all at the same punk's up tempo.
For the past 20-25 years have been playing in a local band called 'Bates Motel' because the line up is always changing.
Yes like every other city everywhere Edinburgh has junkies. Irvine Welsh probably took various junky stores and characters and blended them together. He was a user himself so he had inside knowledge.
He too got caught up in the Punk scene.
|Mar-13-17|| ||HeMateMe: most interesting! I probably wont see the new Trainspotting--sequels usually bite...I was never in a band but played a lot of guitar as a teenager, owned several when I got a little older. Leslie West, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, my favorite players of the day.|
I lost track of it later, living in NYC apartments where you don't want to make excessive noise and end up fighting with neighbors (not that this doesn't stop some people from doing so).
My favorite story along those lines comes from a guy I used to work with. He was telling me about an apartment he had in Manhattan, which even 25 years ago was very expensive and hard to find. The apartments in this building had small balconies on one side of the building. Whenever there was a storm outside, a large woman living above my friend would come out on her balcony and scream out these operatic Valkyrie songs, howling in the wind and rain! My friend said it was starting to drive him nuts, so he moved, despite the difficulties in finding apartments.
|Mar-13-17|| ||Sally Simpson: I too mistrust sequels but apparently Trainspotting II is very good.|
I'll wait for it to come out on DVD. I hate going to the cinema. You are in a room full of strangers and they turn the lights out!
The stuff I play is Dylan and Louden Wainwright III (especially the latter).
Going to a Tarruntula re-union at the end of April. Meeting guys and girls I have not seen for 40 years!
|Jun-30-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Happy Birthday you crazy bastard.
66 today. His age has finally over taken his I.Q.
|Jun-30-17|| ||Captain Hindsight: <His age has finally over taken his I.Q.> To tell the truth, that was yonks ago.|
|Jun-30-17|| ||perfidious: Who <is> this old bugger anyway? A mere 66? C'mon, man, that's nuthin'!|

Sequel: he was eventually so disgusted with noisy neighbors that he joined the army and went to fight in Iraq, hoping to lose at least a significant part of his hearing and live on disability insurance. His Sargent initiated him into the novice rank of a Nordic warrior cult and told him he would experience undying ecstasy if he died bravely in battle. When he asked why, the Sargent said, you haven't been fully initiated yet so I can't tell you, but take my word for it.
The next day, while bravely charging an enemy camp, he stepped on a land mine and lay dying. The Sargent leaned over him beaming: Don't you fret boy, you're off to Valhalla! I bet you can hear the Valkyries serenading you already!
|Jul-29-17|| ||Sally Simpson: The picture...I'm waiting for Andy Murray to turn up.|
It's actually taken on a court me and Danny Kopec played tennis on in the early 80's. He had this massive serve that had me ducking and diving all over the place.
|Jul-29-17|| ||perfidious: <Geoff>, was Danny also a left-hander on the court? He was tough enough to handle at the board; cannot imagine having to face a big-serving lefty into the bargain!|
|Jul-29-17|| ||tpstar: <The picture>
1) What an ace!
3) Geoff holds court.
4) I hope you have No-Fault Insurance.
5) Hey wait, the clock keeps falling off the net.
Great image! =)
|Jul-30-17|| ||zanzibar: <3) Geoff holds court.> gets my vote (though they're all pretty good).|
|Jul-30-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi perfidious,
Ashamed to admit that to make a game of it Danny started doing underarm serves. That's akin to receiving to Queen odds at chess.
I was trying to think of a chess tennis term.
"Chandler in a mating Net' was about the best I could come up with. In the back of mind there is a perfectly apt tennis term but I cannot quite nail it.
|Jul-30-17|| ||morfishine: That's hilarious <Geoff> holding court!|
|Jul-30-17|| ||tpstar: <perfectly apt tennis term>|
