   Karposian has kibitzed 785 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-29-14 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
Karposian: <Ijfyffe> Exactly! Diamond's music is full of bland chords, uninspired piano fills and lounge singer vocals. There is only one I can think of that is even worse: Barry Manilow. Listening to an entire Barry Manilow record is like when I'm going shopping with my wife. At some ...

Karposian: <AylerKupp> <And as far as Cavett's tapes, it was common practice in those tapes to re-record on the master tapes after some time had passed in order to save money (tapes + storage space). And some of them simply deteriorated over time. So the tapes of Cavett's shows with

   Sep-29-14 I Bilek vs Szily, 1954 (replies)

Karposian: <HeMateMe> <I realize that the U.K. was stagnant in the '70s due to the power of the labor unions and its socialist government, but they could never have been worse off than Italy.> You are right about the fact that Italy struggled with major political and social ...

Karposian: Boris Spassky was known for his many foolish and deceptive statements. In fact, so famous was he for 'talking through his hat' that his initials eventually became recognized as a synonym for speaking nonsense.

Karposian: Steven Hawking came recently back from his first date in 10 years. His glasses were smashed, he had a broken wrist, twisted ankle and grazed knees. Apparently she stood him up.
   Sep-24-14 Mariagrazia De Rosa
Karposian: <Stonehenge> I see that FIDE uses Mariagrazia as one name too, so it seems that <chessgames> has got it right after all. OK, so now we have established that her full name is <Mariagrazia Antonietta De Rosa>. She has won the Italian Women's Championship three ...
