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.

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.

Another great example of folk/blues riffs. Plus one of the funniest songs ever.

No need to apologize or slink off.

The vids you posted are great, btw. There is a new class of jazz guitarists who use piano like hammering techniques. I've seen a couple of them on You Tube including Andy McKee (Boomie chessforum (kibitz #3971)) and Stanley Jordan (Boomie chessforum (kibitz #3976)). I have no clue what they are doing but it's great stuff.

Chat away...

Nov-11-16  Open Defence: Oh yeah we we do a Brownie McGhee song Sporting Life Blues!!

Leo Kottke played a mean slide

I love Keb Mo of the newer guys

Nov-11-16  Open Defence: Joe Pass was one of the best.. brilliant player
Nov-11-16  Open Defence: this is a more traditional sounding one from Keb Mo

Mississippi John Hurt is another fine folk/blueser.

Sounds like you guys are well grounded in the classics. You may want to add a bluesy harmonica to your sound.

  Artar1: <Boomie>, What a beautiful piece!

I didn't know that blues could be so melodic. I love it!

What Deffie said: <Joe Pass was one of the best.. brilliant player>

Pass played a lot with Oscar Peterson, one of the all time great jazz pianists. There is some of their work on You Tube, for example,

I'm getting great mileage out of that "HAULING FREIGHT" jibe. Now if I only knew why, I could bottle it.

Anywho, I'm always delighted to please you, my liege.

  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: lol I was going to reply>

That's OK. I blew the joke anyways. It should read "Hake your booty! Hake your money maker."

Premium Chessgames Member

No- Shark is much better than Hake, because Shark sounds a lot more like the target word- Shake.

Rail cars and teamsters haul freight. Santa carries toys to children!


Also "carry the freight" means to get a manly job done.

Santa isn't manly, he's a big red fat guy brah.

OK then.

Shark that money maker when you're HAULING FREIGHT.

I added the HF to ensure a chuckle. I'm just fishing for good jokes.

Santa not a real man?! Blasphemer! He's the Hurdy Gurdy Man!. Here comes the roly poly man, singing songs of love.

Hail Santa!
