I have made the song Stop the War for Opium, and I was in kind of @#$% list by the finnish police already. And then I did also some street art about a weed smoking social worker, after which the security threats against my person reached such levels that I decided to declare being 718 mentioned in the manuscript Liber AL. I wanted to know a little bit about quantum physics in my youth, and I did, and then I was like of, whatever, I don't feel like knowing more. Now I am trying to dig into the concept of scientific truth because there is something deeply wrong with modern medicine, and economics too.

I have also developed my own chess variation which I call Ichess or Ishakki. It has two rule alternations, basically.

1. Player can take his own pieces or pawns. That is a square occupied by players own pieces (not the King, naturally) can be occupied in players turn by another of his pieces when it would have the right to move there and the piece previously in that square is removed from the board.

2. Provided a player has less than 16 pieces and less than 8 pawns and the rank in question has a vacant square, he can use his move to create a new pawn to either first or eight rank depending on color. The first move of the new pawn is one step forward (when a player uses another move for that) and from second and seventh rank the normal exceptions apply.

   Jan-19-19 Veselin Topalov
Ilkka Salonen: Former World number 1 hasn't been participating much in tournaments and a dispute between FIDE and Bulgarian chess federation is on the background. It is a disgrace really. I wonder how are the arrangements with FIDE Grand Prix going on, as we have recently learned of FIDE ...
   Jan-12-19 Lasker vs Steinitz, 1894 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Yeah, didn't Lasker's family pretty much perish in the holocaust? I mean that's what came to my mind about the pun. And Steinitz sort of went insane too. Maybe it came to my mind as I've been thinkig about darker side's of fates of people involved in chess as I learned about ...
   Jan-06-19 C Woojin Yoo vs L Cernousek, 2018 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I provide this link because it doesn't happen every day that a 12-year-old beats a 2700 player, like Yoo did recently at Bay Area International against Le Quang Liem.
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Perhaps we shouldn't view the fact that most top level players these days, like the two contenders here, are quite young, as only a positive thing. It could also indicate that there are many unhealthy aspects in modern life due to which many people start be quite daft in their
   Nov-18-18 Polugaevsky vs Korchnoi, 1980 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Nice game. "Anarkismi on tosiasioiden tinkimätöntä tarkastelua."
   Nov-17-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Is 51. b4 Carlsen protesting about security guards making disturbance? They are telling audience to move at half an hour intervals according to lichess article. Perhaps he just thinks it was better for his match chances that it is Caruana who misses a win.
   Nov-12-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Well, if it's all draws tnrough the whole 12 games, then people will at least maybe start to question of what has become of the capitalist society.
   Nov-11-18 Smyslov vs Petrosian, 1960 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Kind of gives same impression as some TCEC games.
   Nov-04-18 E Jacobsen vs J Moeller, 1923
Ilkka Salonen: Nice game. It's kind of dramatic or tragic that Jacobsen died in just some weeks.

Ilkka Salonen: Well, I think music is much of a vibrational or frequency. Like, you shouldn't kill the messenger if you haven't even heard the message. Some ways Green Day are the best band in the world, but of course they pale in comparrison to my transcendental songs. ...
