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
And it makes so little sense to us,
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.

  WCC Editing Project: A <bum buffet>?

Sounds well out of order.

Is this a reference to feeding the homeless or to Hannibal Lector?

Oh! A Woddy Alien movie I never even heard of.

Brilliant! Thanks <Tim>. I'm off to get it now.

  Boomie: <Wooly Caterpillar Cocoon>

Yes. Bums in the buff are an awful sight.

"Take the Money and Run" has some hilarious moments like all of Allen's early films. Given that you and I have almost the same aesthetics, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

It a Jewish gentleman, for one. I think he's wearing a "Minora," if I'm not mistaken.

  Boomie: <Whiskered Channel Changer>

Naturally, I'm more interested in the curves showing through that filmy minnow.

Will you be watching Maruana vs. A. Giri, Wrath of Ghod this fine (insert time of day here)?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WCC Editing Project: <Tim> I didn't even know that was tonight's line up?

Looks like I picked a bad decade to give up smoking <Maruana>...

He's high on the leader board, as I understand it.

If anyone can put out his fire, it's AHHAHAHA

<Aguirre, the Wrath of Ghod>

That's your best since you vanquished <H> and <Big> in the great "Pun off."

Yes well <A. Gorilla> is certainly a worthy foe.

Is it on now?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WCC Editing Project: Aha!

They will be out of the gate in two and a half hours.

I'm busy watching centuries old Russian newsreels from the late 1950s.

They go down best if you don't understand one word of Russian and you like to watch steel mills.

The thing is, every one of these reels also has some chess footage.

So far I found Iceland's legendary GM <Fred Flintstone> and Sweden's plucky young GM <Bennie and the Jets>:

Fridrik Olafsson

Bent Larsen

Are you celebrating the anniversary of <D-Day>?

You could rent "The Longest Day" and "Patton" and a few others at your local "video store" if they haven't all gone out of business by now.

Bloody internet...

Oh wait

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Wooly Chupa Cabra>

Don't let the Danes hear you call Larsen a Swede. You'll have Vikings all up in your face. As penance you should read the Edda with special attention to Njorl's saga.

I celebrated D-Day of The Great WWII, The Big One, by playing Allied General from Torch to Berlin. The Allies had some cool toys. The B-29 Super Fortress was awesome. The Krauts never had anything close to it. They failed to produce 4 engine bombers, which sealed their fate during the Battle of Britain.

Of course, D-Day wasn't much of a battle. The first 3 hours of Antietam had more casualties than the Allies suffered on all of D-Day. Still it's a challenging problem to land the right units in the right places at the right time. The logistics of D-Day was the real hero.

  Boomie: <Wonky Chuckle Chum> They are running Red Dwarf on PBS again.

Lister: What's it like being dead?

Rimmer: It's like being on holiday with a group of Germans.

Bwa ha ha ha.

Curiously, I read the book "Better Than Life" at about the same time the show came from across the pond. Their books are also hilarious.

Did you know that there is a European obsession with filming trams, and then posting them, with route information, on youtube?

I suppose it's the 22d century version of train spotting.

It's great though- I have found many fine bits of footage that might go well in a chess documentary, if I ever finish one again that is.

Here is one of my favorites:

It's the full 45 minute Monty, so here's a shorter one, for your approval:

If I ever become incapacitated and can only lie on my back the rest of my life, I think I could be happy if someone installed a screen in the ceiling and just played every single one of these videos.

Your post inspired me to go pramspotting. I stumbled on this beauty. It's got 10 horsepower. 10!!!

As I posted on the video, I think that guy is the number one genius of the internet. If I met him at a party, I would follow him around.

Thank you so much. (I only had to remind you once this time.)

"Hou loves ya, baby?" Right back atcha. I saw it on the Telly.

And happiness to you in Daeglo. May all your body paint glisten in the Korean sun.

Here is some feyness that I doubt has escaped your notice:

The Kong Cramden song shows some direct influence by, of all people, the Everly Brothers. Amazing how influential those pesky teens were.

Ging Jimson did produce some amazing music, eh?

<Trappist Pickle> haha deserving of enshrinement. <Travis> has so many nicknames that we don't want to forget the better efforts.

  jepflast: <Boomie>

I thought you'd like to know that I changed the "Add Line" feature so that the new moves are Candidates instead of Prime Candidates.

The Tree was always supposed to be a community-driven tool. This change reflects that. My idea was that the first move in a position was the Prime until proven otherwise, but people were not interpreting the Tree in the same way as I.

Thanks for reminding me to make the change again. Sorry revolution is so slow in politics. If you end up breakdancing with joy, please post a video.
