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.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

Thanks for the BS. The Cirque can never get enough BS, apparently.

  OhioChessFan: You need not chase down the Zapruder film was altered silliness. For starters, 8 spectators identified by name were filming in Dealey Plaza that day, along with 4 newsmen in the motorcade who were jumping in and out of their cars throughout the parade. I won't even lead you by the hand down that pathway, but a reasonable person should be able to see the insurmountable problems therein for the alterationists.

As much as everyone would like some explanation that would make sense, I'm afraid that narcissistic SOB acted alone. I was hoping they would trace it back to Marcello but no such luck. At least he had some semblance of a motive. Oh, well.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, it was Oswald alone. All kinds of people had a motive. That comes with being the President. As for the conspiracy nuts,they point to the head snap in the Zapruder film as the single most important reason to think there was a conspiracy, and then point to other less significant matters as proof it was altered. Apparently, these sophisticated plotters altered the film, but didn't change <the single most important> part!

Manson trial biographer and California State Public Prosecutor <Vincent Bugliosi> also wrote a book on the JFK assassination.

His "verdict" was that Oswald acted alone.

I didn't read the book, I just saw that in a Bugliosi interview.

I did read Bugliosi's Manson trial book around 100 times though, as "Lotsapoppa" will attest.

What's up Lotsapoppa, word to you momma.

Who is she talking to and how does she make her voice do that?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tiggler: <Boomie> If you are really looking for a conspiracy theory, then ask who gave LHO that job on the 5th floor of the BDB, and who routed the motorcade under it. Given all that, Oswald was bound to think, "it would be rude not to."
Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Tiggler: <Boomie> If you are really looking for a conspiracy theory...>

NOT. But I'm sure the conspiracy nuts have all that info.

The answer is clear once you analyze LHO's excuse for a personality. The KGB knew immediately what kind of wanna be poser he was and refused his many offers of help.

Thanks be to Landru! Peace and contentment, my friends.

Sep-23-16  mckmac: <Boomie> Sorry to hear that your health has been a bit iffy. I myself have reached that age where bits are starting to fall off. Press on regardless I reckon ...

To celebrate the Equinox, here is the first verse of a song called 'Southern Lights' by local genius SJD.

"Light sleepers, totem keepers
Sky dwellers, gone to ground
Bedroom strummers, finger drummers
Backpedalers, backward bound

Southern Lights, have found you ...
Southern Lights, surround you ..."

This gentleman deserves to be famous.IMHO.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <mckmac> Thanks for the lyrics and words of encouragement. After caring for my parents at the end of their lives, I have no illusions about aging. The world would be a silly place if we were immortal, eh? I just wish they could find a med that keeps my BP down is all.

As for things falling off, have you tried duct tape? Seems to work on everything.

Sep-24-16  mckmac: <Boomie> Heh, duct tape is brilliant and I try to keep a roll handy at all times.

So far, high BP is one delight I have thankfully been spared. Good luck on that. Medication can be a real individual mystery, but worth the trouble when you get it right.

No, it wouldn't make much sense if we were immortal. I guess some of us are hoping to just hold it together long enough to bag a seat at the Late Show.

Thanks for sharing your fonk and for your kind concern. I miss our little chats. But in no way do I want you to waste your time here if it takes you away from your arts.

Fonk on, grrrrl
