Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.


Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!



This is the forum.
The Cirque,
On an average day, people go about their business.
When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

We were working out of Tactics and Swindles. My partner's name is Jessie. My name's Boomie.

Given that a thought dies shortly after birth, the writer is a mortician whose job is to make it smile.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

Though it may seem quite incongruous

She is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Though she may seem a bit mannish,
She would never play the Spanish.
'Cause she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Neither Russian, French nor Catalan
'Cause she always wants to get her man.
So she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Boomie: This is a fine example of an overworked piece. The queen can defend either g2 or the first rank, but not both. Clearly the rook on a3 is tragically misplaced. It is needed to defend the first rank.

OK then.

Shark that money maker when you're HAULING FREIGHT.

How did you know I needed to relax? You always know exactly how I'm feeling. I'm climbing the walls at the moment. Are you psychotic brah. Oops I mean psychic.

Months ago now you warned me out of the blue against going on a shopping spree- again, when you wrote that, I had secretly been planning to do just that.

I still did, but the "ghost of Teem" went with me and probably limited the financial damage.

Despite your Nostradamian assistance, however, I did manage to snag a fine grey wool "Polham" brand hat.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: How did you know... shopping spree>

My rather profligate approach to relationships has taught me many lessons about the pitfalls of separation. I've probably made every mistake conceivable at least twice. I've known a few women who lost their Fathers early and that exacerbates the feelings of abandonment when a relationship goes South. They are then especially vulnerable to all the mistakes like shopping sprees and rebound hanky panky.

As for the timeliness of "Relax", that is just a happy accident, as the artists say. I was just Kojaking back atcha. But I'm delighted that you have benefitted from my psychotic, er, psycho babble. That is an expression of my compassion.

<Sakajaweea: Indian Princess>

Would this be an acceptable new handle to replace <Teem>?

I realize you're from Mexico City, but <Sakajaweiner> was also Mexican, if I'm not mistaken.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jess a Darn Minuto Now>

SackaElCrapo perhaps, to maintain the Mexicali flavor.

Premium Chessgames Member

Good call <Teem>. Fortuitously reminiscent of the motto of the fabled Mexican Marines- "El tuffo crappo"

Premium Chessgames Member

<Jess a Darn Minuto Now> heh...

Premium Chessgames Member

<Teem> I know <Bonnie> is one of your favorites, and your selection is a good advert for her quality:

She sounds as fresh and sunny as a fragrant spring morning here.

On country and western women, though, I prefer the smokey, cigarette scarred vocal stylings of <Lucinda Williams>- especially this track here:

"Mr. Johnson sings, in a corner by the bar,

Sold his soul to the Devil, so he could play guitar..."

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen:

<Teem> I know <Bonnie> is one of your favorites>

Actually, that album is the only bit I know about her. You would think I would listen to her other work, but no logic can explain my behavior.

She would probably shoot you for calling her a C&W gal. She's really into R&B, which is far from barnyard music.

She is a good singer, no question, but I think the fact that she wrote this song counts for extra credit.

Finally, I chose that song for a reason. It evokes some feelings that we were chatting about concerning separation and loneliness. Perhaps I should stop trying to be profound and stick to the humor.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: The whole record with "2 Kool" is great, called "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road." "Metal Firecracker" is particularly good.

She has great earlier songs, including "Side of the Road," one of the best songs ever written.

Her songs I've heard from the past few years tend to be slow, weary and sad, and too much alike.

Premium Chessgames Member

<Tim> It's never time to stop being profound, man. That's what you're all about and I love you for it.

<Jim> yes that's a cracking record eh? I saw the tour for that record when it stopped in Montreal. Memorable.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen>

Thanks for the sweet vote of confidence. I am sometimes swayed by a low self es-TEEM. I should not post when I'm feeling that way.

<It just occurred to me that I am two tetras short of an aquarium.>

That belongs in a film.

It's too good a line to leave begging. Therefore, I suggest we write a screenplay.

Or a screamplay, it you're up for a horror.

  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: scream ploy>

Eggsolent idea.

Our working title is *Planet of the Grapes*, which should be quite a-peeling.

Here's an AV aid:

Three astronauts do the time warp again and go back to ancient Greece to swim the English Channel. No, wait. I mixed metaphors again. Or semaphores.

Anyways...hilarity ensues.
