|Jun-24-11|| ||FSR: Yowza! (Note to self: must resist temptation to make joke about "mating positions.") Re Uhlmann: I didn't realize he was still alive. The other Wolfgang (Unzicker) died, but happily Uhlmann is still with us.|
|Jun-24-11|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: A few months ago, I discovered who broke up the (in)famous Olympic fracas. It was Yasser Seirawan -- yes, the quiet mild man of chess used his muscle to quiet things down; but then, if you've seen pictures of Yaz, you will know he is quite the weight lifter.|
|Jun-24-11|| ||perfidious: Levon Aronian is a lucky man, that I know!|
|Jun-24-11|| ||FSR: Yep, Levon has done pretty well for a guy who was "born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day."|
|Jun-26-11|| ||bartonlaos: I once posted a broken link above to a few of her demo songs demonstrating many of her styles. These songs included Angel, Blue Skies, Caravan, and Over-the-Rainbow.|
If anyone wants to download these, just let me know, and I will post a link for you.
|Jun-26-11|| ||M.D. Wilson: No comment.|
|Jun-26-11|| ||bartonlaos: <MD> Here she sings a jazz song called Blueskies - (the freehosting site that I use is only temporary, which is why I have to ask before posting):|
The range and quality of her singing is surprisingly good.
Overall, it has affected my interest in Women's Chess in general since December 2010.
|Jun-26-11|| ||FSR: Dang, she's a good singer too! I'm in love! (Don't tell my wife.)|
|Jun-26-11|| ||M.D. Wilson: Levon, you lucky devil!|
|Jun-27-11|| ||bartonlaos: I think this next song makes it easy to appreciate her abilities both as a vocal performer, and a talented singer - esp. when comparing it with blueskies above:|
|Jun-28-11|| ||bartonlaos: This song is originally by Canadian, Sarah McLaclan, called "Angel". It may be difficult for some to tell the difference between them: |
I think these three songs make the point. (If anyone wants to hear her version of 'Over the Rainbow' make a request and I'll post it.)
|Jul-04-11|| ||FSR: For you Arianne fans: here's some pictures of Ashot Nadanian with Arianne and others: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...|
|Jul-05-11|| ||HeMateMe: She's a babe, but your link doesn't work.|
|Jul-05-11|| ||FSR: Hmm, works for me, but maybe that's just because I'm Ashot Nadanian's Facebook friend. See if this works better: http://on.fb.me/jWFT6p (The relevant pictures are in the bottom row.)|
|Jul-05-11|| ||HeMateMe: nope, the nuclear triangle shows up, "material unavailable." I'm not a facebook member, does that affect the link?|
|Jul-05-11|| ||FSR: I would guess that's the problem, but I don't know.|
|Oct-27-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <FSR>: <I'm in love!>|
So, who isn't?
|Oct-27-12|| ||FSR: <Abdel Irada> I see you deleted your more risqué comment. :-)|
|Oct-27-12|| ||Abdel Irada: To leave certain posts up here might be considered risqué business. :-D|
|Oct-30-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <FSR: For you Arianne fans....>|
And how exactly can anyone *not* be an Arianne fan?
|Oct-30-12|| ||OBIT: Caoili's likes: "Funny stories, The Cream, arguing, getting up to no good, shopping, quotes, tea, Pink Floyd album covers, dancing (all forms), chocolate, blitz, theatre, Karpov's games, Oreo's, black and dry humour, singing, good music, gravity (without it we're doomed), sunsets, sunrises, fine food (and fine boys), stars, moons, water, Edward Norton and Johnny Depp, grace, green lights, cooking, pina colada's, vodka, red wine, Kahlua, dwarfs and the odd Cuban cigar." |
That's quite an interesting list, definitely well above the usual "puppies, sunsets, and walks on the beach".
|Oct-13-14|| ||waustad: One thing I noticed during her commentary at the Millionaire Chess tournament is that she doesn't sound even slightly Australian. Of course English was not her first language, but her accent is mostly American. Nicole Kidman can switch accents in a heartbeat, but that is less likely to be part of Arianne Caoili's repertoire.|
|Oct-13-14|| ||OhioChessFan: You noticed her voice?|
|Mar-28-15|| ||zanzibar: Is her middle name "Bo"?
If so, she played in USOpen96, and did rather well as a late entrant.
It must be her, age 9 at the time.
|Mar-28-15|| ||asianwarrior: Is she the one in the picture?|
