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.

Yes she is an English fan.

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.

I understand you probably can't get ahold of the Danish TV series <Borgen>, but I believe I can pass you the video files if you download "drop box" which is a cloud-sharing service- a free and easy to use one.

Anyhoo I've been watching it and frequently I think of <The West Wing> and <you> whilst doing so.

I remember our discussions aboot <The West Wing>, which I regard to be the best and most realistic political drama ever.

I think this Danish political drama <Borgen> is in the same league- character driven, ultra realistic situations. Mainly just great writing.

You can read aboot it here- be sure to look at the IMDB member reviews- you just click on the "User reviews" button to see what folks said aboot this show:


31 user | 21 critic>

If you are interested, I will tell you how to get and use DROPPINGS BOX in an Emu.

Actually come to think you should already have a DROPPINGS BOX if you own an Emu.

You don't want them messing up your apartment.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jessiblets>

I'll have the West Wing in Giblet Gravy. DO YOU HEAR ME???

Sorry. I can't help it. Sometimes I scare myself.

Mammy Secretary Bird is similar to West Wing. The writing is almost as engaging and the acting is comparable.

You could attach Bergen Belsen to an EMU, eh? Perhaps that whiz bang cloudy app would be useful for something other than attachable items. I'll subject it to my withering gaze.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jiblets>

Is this your box, madam?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jibs: Borgen>

There are episodes on Your Tubes but I haven't found a watchable E1 yet. The one there is blown up so that you can only see about 1/2 of the screen. Ordinarily, this might be tolerable, but the English subtitles are obscured. And I don't speak Viking. I'll keep nosing around the Tuber.

Premium Chessgames Member

<Teem> Got it in one!

You just download the drop box, and then let me know when you have it on your computer. You'll need to sign in and create a free account as well.

Step two is ridiculously easy, and yes it will work through this new fangled "e" mail they keep telling me aboot.

My copies are primo and have excellent hard-coded English subs.

Box ready for droppings. I put a file in and shared it with your Yahoo EMU address. The blue ball is in your court.

Are you up for episodes 5 and 6 of BORGAN?

I finally have some time free from work.

Premium Chessgames Member

<DIM of the YARD> new Australian police procedural, not to be missed.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: Are you up for episodes 5 and 6 of BORGAN?>

There is room in the Top Secret Borg Droppings Area. I have just finished the gripping 3rd installment where the PM sells her soul for a budgie.

Just checked they are both operational in our TV FOLDER.

Clever hiding them in the TV folder. But nothing escapes my withering gaze except the stuff I don't see.

The Ice Bergens have been downloaded and deleted.

  saffuna: My family listened to the Stan Freberg album "The United States of America" over and over when it came out in 1961:

The Thanksgiving campaign song is particularly funny.

Then in 1966, during the campaign, he did a takeoff on Reagan's run for governor based on the current Batman and Robin series:

A lot of the humor was topical for 1966, might be hard to catch onto today.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <saffuna: Freberg>

Thank you for the link.

The 60's was a chaotic and, frankly, dreadful decade. The politics reflected that.

As Tom Lehrer sang about the election of George Murphy, "Oh, gee, it's great. At last we've got a senator who can really sing and dance."
