Note: this absurdly over-written (in both the literary and programming sense) chunk of text has seemingly won a Caissar for Best Profile. I shall try not to burst into tears and throw my shoes at Meryl Streep.

My favourite player is Tony Miles. He is greatly missed. My 1976 simul game with him (I was black) began 1.d4 e6 2.e4 d5 3.Nd2 b6 ... unfortunately, I've lost the score: but it was a draw after White's Queen was exchanged for 3 pieces.

Some other favourites? OK. Viktor Korchnoi, for all the obvious reasons. Tal, Botvinnik, Petrosian and Smyslov. From the later days of the Soviet school: Romanishin, Vaganian, Lputian, Psakhis and Ehlvest. From the British new wave: Short, Speelman, Williams. From the Russian-Irish wave: Baburin.

From the Irish wave ... those who have written about the French Defence (Heidenfeld, Moles, Harding, Collins, O'Connor, Coffey), and those who played it (J.J. Walsh, J. Ryan, P. Short, S. Jessel, R. Beatty, et al).

A distinct aroma of burning prevails*. Fire and brimstone, probably, or one of the charred and singed chess sets in my possession.

A Czech haiku, by Jan 'Honza' Cervenka:

Chceš-li remízu,
musíš hráti na výhru,
cíle tak dojdeš.

* "Why, this is Hell, nor am I out of it."
- Christopher Marlowe

"Down these mean streets ..."
- Phillip Marlowe

"This, too, was one of the dark places ..."
- Marlow (Joseph Conrad)

I am deeply suspicious of 'social media'. I don't want my computer to think it knows my 'preferences', and I don't want my personal details passed from hand to invisible hand, or soul to poison soul. But I'm sufficiently open-minded -- or innocent -- to trust in the integrity of Chessgames.com, and the good people who run it.

Note: some folk may be more familiar with the kind of bio/profile that goes "Muh name is Peregrine Ng and ah play Bullet at PhyringRange.com and ah come to CG for thuh crab sandwiches..." ... sort of thing.

This isn't one of those. In fact, it was never really *written* at all ... more like 'left behind' after repeated moves. The fragments that remain intact have withstood years of deletions. Quite like me, really.

"A medium amputates the organ it extends".
- Marshall McLuhan

"I go without saying".
- Me, or somebody like me.

<The Game and Playe of Cheffe ...>

"Chess is a sea in which a shark can persuade a seagull to eat its skin parasites..."

"Chess is the art of cartesian coordinates with obsessive compulsive disorder..."

"Chess is the science of naughty molecules."

"Chess is sport for the disembodied."

"It is what it is."

"Except when it isn't."

<'His calmness, his authority in all circumstances! In a chess game he would win everything, merely by his nerves.' 'But he was not playing chess,' Smiley objected drily.>

(John Le Carré)

I'll say it again, though I can't recall saying it before: < Empathy is essential to any kind of intelligence worth having.> Although I seem to have some kind of attention surplus disorder.

On planet Earth (where most chess games so far are believed to have been played - Science Officer Chamitoff vs NASA Ground Control, 2008 and Soyuz 9 Cosmonauts vs Ground Control, 1970 are among the exceptions):

1. Brian Eno:

"Another green world."

2. William Burroughs:

"I don't want love - I don't want forgiveness - all I want is *outta here* --"

<A Phormer Phrontistery ... Frogspawn ... 20,000 Lashes ... A Phrontistery ... Phrogspawn ... Philoxenia ... Antarctica Starts Here ... Epigamic Ephebes ... Waxwing's Wah-wah Rabbits ... Opposition & Sister Squares ... Cosy Moments will not be Muzzled ...>

A dictionary helps. As does Modern Chess Openings or Fundamental Chess Openings (by Van der Sterren -- good on transpositions). Encyclopedias, whether wiki, text-based or fictional, have their place. But for a good knight's sleep try a bed, futon, hammock or some of my writing. Avoid Gerry McCarthy

"Brutality is out of date."
- Aron Nimzowitsch

"Keep violence in the mind where it belongs."
- B.W. Aldiss

"Combinations and chemistry are your only men."
- Er, <me>?

<"I used to be somebody else, but I traded him in."> M. Antonioni

"Chess is a marvelous piece of Cartesianism, and so imaginative that it doesn't even look Cartesian." - Marcel Duchamp

[reconstruction always in progress, please excuse noise, no refunds, no discounts, no hawkers, no spitting]

So what am I doing here? Simple: I like to play *with* chess...

<Writing, unlike chess, is a victimless crime.>

"J'ai une maladie: je vois le langage."
- Roland Barthes

<More First Person Gibberish>:

Fischer-Dylan Syndrome: <"You can always come back, but you can't come back all the way">.

Favorite Opening: The French, naturellement. After 30-odd years, I think I'm starting to understand its benthic deeps. Well, I had it for a moment ... seems to be gone again.

Basta. Enough chess, it makes my head spin. Anyone who has lingered in my forum (Frogspawn, Philoxenia, 20,000 Lashes, Antarctica Starts Here, usw) knows that much of the conversation isn't about chess at all, or even lingerie. I'm interested in *stuff* -- arts and sciences, shoos and sheeps and ceiling wicks, kibitzers and King Kong vs Gojiro in Dronning Maud Land. I like to make connections. I like people who make connections.

Bad puns, bad languages, bad breathing, bad breeding, psychological insights, literary allusions, surrealist manifestos, or the sound of one hand stentorating. I'm not going to name any of the people who make CG so much fun. You know who you are, O my droogs and Zapkinder.

One last chess snippet. I have never, in my entire life, played either side of a Spanish/Ruy Lopez in a serious game. I'm a Spanish Virgin. There, you knew I was a pervert, didn't you?

<- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

<From <Gravity's Rainbow> by Thomas Pynchon:

"Queen, Bishop and King are only splendid cripples, and pawns, even those that reach the final row, are condemned to creep in two dimensions, and no Tower will ever rise or descend -- no: flight has been given only to the Springer!">

- - - - - - - - - - - - - ->

Whatever you find in books, leave it there.
- John Cale

Know anything about chess? It can be a virtual life work, and what is it to absorb all a man's thought and energy? - William Burroughs

I am not the only one who writes in order to have no face. - Michel Foucault

Domdaniel: I have never lived in NyC, and I don't particlarly bear grudges. But Fischer's 9/11 comments definitely put him on my "bad guys list". It was not an emotional reaction.

  Domdaniel: <m> Heh. I will refrain from analysing the way you spell 'dauughter'.

OK, I won't refrain...

"Two u's" = "to use" ...

Jan-19-17  mckmac: <Uncle Dom> Unintentional, I assuure you.It's funny you know, I don't think I've ever really got* women. They do say that the one thing a woman will never forgive you for is missing a chance to bed her. I'm either too diffident or too full on. Cripes, you know, right now my name is being blackened by a lady* who says I am, and have been, "stalking" her. Shoot me now willya?
Jan-19-17  mckmac: <Dom> Perfect sense to me. I mean, I'm as big a horndog as the next dude but I've only been tumbled once ( but oh, what a tumbling it was ...) in the last nine years. Okay, so six of those were wiped out stuck in a quiet room with "depression", but I think you will agree, that's a pretty low strike rate. I just kind've forgot how to play the game.

I'm a bit funny, I know. For instance, I can honestly say that the most memorable intimate experience of my life was a hug from the witch who is now saying that I'm stalking her. Go figure ...

Jan-19-17  mckmac: <Dom> & <Harry> I was listening to Paul Simon's "You're The One" this morning. Have you guys heard it? If you haven't you are in for a trip and a treat. This song is by no means exceptional, the whole album is just outstanding.

  Domdaniel: I am extant.

Still playing games.

Scored 3.5/6 in Bunratty Challengers, which I thought might be enough for a grading prize. But some kid pipped me, as usual.

Feb-22-17  mckmac: <Scored 3.5/6 in Bunratty Challengers ...> ... and finished 23/84 which in my book is a sterling performance (thanks be to google, dig the 23 too, and thnks for the delete)

  Domdaniel: <whiteshark> Danke. It's a very fine tournament. I don't know exactly why I didn't play Bunratty in recent years, but I will return.

The 'Short family' is amusing. Last year somebody even persuaded Nigel to wear a false beard, so there were five hairy Shorts. And this year he threatened to return with some of his own family members, so there could be seven Shorts.

I watched the Speelman-Bates game live. Incredible stuff.

i thought you would like this exploration of fonts in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

it goes on through the movie in an interesting way using both the fonts and the movie parts with pictures to explore or compare https://typesetinthefuture.com/2014...
