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.

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: One thing I have noticed about Hou is she plays her openings at least as well as her opponents. Her evals coming out of the openings are almost always equal or plus. If her middle and endgame techniques improve, she will become very hard to beat.

Boomie: <jphamlore> Although your theory of opening repertoire is interesting, it doesn't apply to Hou Yifan. Looking at her opening repertoire, Yifan Hou , she opens 1. e4 and plays the Nimzo and QGD against 1.d4. Her preference of 1. e4 has nothing to do with trainers. Bobby Fischer

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.

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.

  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.
