<hozza> Again, you really know your key Indie Music brah.

It is amazing how quickly Peter Buck arranged such a simple but distinctive guitar style eh? It is instantly recognizable on the first bar, throughout all of <REM's> work.

"Chronic Town" has to be one of the most stunning debuts in history. One of the best parts is that Michael Stipe, to this day, refuses to give any hints about which words he actually wrote for any of the tracks. There are no "official lyrics" for this record and there never will be.

My friend <Andrew> was so convinced that Stipe was singing "cat afloat" (as opposed to "catapult") that he would offer to fight you if you disagreed.

"Cat Afloat" the oldest demo version I could find on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUv...

Cat Afloat! Caaaat Afloat!

<Hoza> Thanks for the raft of new indie/foreign movies as well.

How did you come to enjoy your foreign movies, and where do you go to see them in England? Do you have rep theatres or do you have a way to get them online or from "shoppes," as I believe you call them?

Here in my Canadian farm town there is no physical media left, and forget about a theatre that shows anything other than Disney movies. Here, if you want to see something good you have to find it online.

So I have located the first two tracks from your joint, the "Norsqueegee Noirs." I am a big fan of Scandinavian films, particularly horror and police procedurals.

<Hooza>, <Big Pawn>

I enjoyed your negotiations immensely, reminded me of <Fischer-Karpov>.

Did you guys play yet? Where will you play? Can cg.com members watch the match amirite.

  Big Pawn: I only play 1-minute chess, outside of standard time controls. <Harry> won't play me at that time control. After playing 1 minute for so long, 5 minute seems like standard chess and I am bored with it. When my opponent is thinking, I read my emails and check facebook, so then I come back and play a bad move. I can't get into it.

I have two modes: 1 minute and standard time control.

However, I did offer <harry> a special handicap. I told him I would open with 1.f3 2.kf2 and 1...f6 2...Kf7 every game to even it up some.

<Harry> is just TOO OLD to play bullet, so there's nothing I can do about it.

<horza> I watched a replay of the last <Darby> game where they scored 4 unanswered goals on youtube. Impressive, but the upload quality was terrible.

Is there a better website to see <Derby> replay highlights?

Speaking of replays I watched <Spurs> spank <Manc> three times already. It might be another 47 years till they win again at <Old Day of the Triffids>, so this one is special.

I do feel bad for Reds though. Something is missing in that puzzle but they have enough quality, and financial access to more quality, to get themselves sorted I'm sure.

I would be surprised if they didn't get their act together, sooner than later.

I don't think they will sack <Jose> before next season, but if they do I doubt he will have trouble finding work.

Speaking of which <Rastafarian Benito Mussolini> has had many more high profile jobs than gaffing for <Newcastle> amirite. They must be pleased to have him. I always liked <Newcastle> and especially after they got <Jon Jo Shelvey> from Swansea.

He reminds me of <Arnautovic> in that he has tremendous quality, but he's really inconsistent. Still, <Jon Jo> is one of the top "Long Passers" in the league and certainly the best player who looks like a cue ball.

<Big Pawn> Aha ok thanks for the update. Still more drama in the negotiations, and like <Fischer-Karpov> it looks like the match won't occur... or will it?

We'll have to wait to hear back from <Bobby> next...

Seriously these cg.com grudge matches can be historic. There were two guys who hated each other back around 10 years ago now- <Rook File> and <Plato>, I think?

Anyways they played a public match and not only produced some fabulous chess, they became good friends as well.

If I remember correctly, they didn't post the live links to their games, but they would post the pgns in their "match forum" after and we could look at them.

  Big Pawn: I vaguely remember that, I think. I highly doubt I would produce anything that could be called fabulous chess lol.

My 1 minute rating goes between 2000 and 2200 and if I play those guys rated 2350+ I get crushed terribly. I get crushed easily.

I do love to play troll openings though, like the Fried Fox and things like that. Against 1.f4 I play 1...g5.

Against 1.d4 I play 1...e5 and indulge in all kinds of unsound but fun play.

Against 1.c4 I often play 1...b5 and get like no compensation at all, except I totally piss off my opponent! heh

Against the Scandinavian I play 1.e4 d5 2.d4 ed 3.Nc3.

Against many variations of the French and Caro, I do an early knight sac on f7, something like this:

1.e4 c6
2.d4 d5
3.Nc3 de
4.Nxe4 Nf6
5.Ng5

and I wait until they play ...h6 so I can sac on f7.

5...e6
6.Nf3 Be7
7.Bd3 h6
8.Nxf7 Kxf7
9.Ne5+

Something like that. Same with the French if they take on e4.

If they play 1.g4, I don't let them have any of the fun, because I play 1...h5.

heh

It gets worse.

When I play the French Winawer, I play the 4...b6 and ...Qd7 lines, but even worse than that, I don't play the standard ...Ba6 to trade off the LSB, but instead play the awkward ...Nc6 (in front of the c7 pawn) and ...Bb7.

Life is fair.
Life is good.

Heh... I like those openings brah...

Your bullet rating looks very similar to <Kingscrusher's>. I watched him play live online in many bullet tournaments; usually they are on <Lichess>.

<Kingscrusher's> opening strategy is also "tricky"- often he will use exactly the same opening for white and black, a "hedgehoggy" kind of system in which he can play the first 6-8 moves exactly the same, with either colour, no matter what the opponent plays.

Another advantage of this is that he is super familiar with the kinds of positions that arise.

  optimal play: Hello Harry

I noticed on the Kibitzer's Cafe your Top 10 Jimmy Stewart movies, which had "Destry Rides Again" (1939) listed as your no.1 pick.

Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #238039)

I'm a James Stewart fan but had never seen this film, so on your recommendation I downloaded it for a viewing.

I really enjoyed it.

I think Jimmy and Marlene Dietrich are terrific together.

It's predictability does not detract from it's appeal, and some of the scenes are quite funny, in particular the fight between Marlene and Una Merkel.

Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and thank you for bringing this gem to everyone's attention.

Your posts in the Kibitzer's Cafe are always entertaining, and your movie and music opinions very interesting.

You certainly bring the Cafe to life!

  harrylime: yo <Opti> !

thank you for that and yes I love James Stewart too !

My fave Jimmy Stewart era is the Philadelphia Story Jimmy... cynical,snarling, knowing, but kind and well, Jimmy Stewart with it ! lol

Destry is just Hollywood magic which will never be seen again . And for me JS has never been better ... but be interested to know your fave films ..

  optimal play: Harry, putting together a Jimmy Stewart top 10 isn't easy because it's so difficult trying to decide what to leave out.

So many great films by this legendary actor.

Your top 10 is very good and even the few I left off mine are movies which I thoroughly enjoy.

But anyway, here's my James Stewart top 10, which will probably change from time to time:

1) The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

2) Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

3) The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)

4) The Shop Around the Corner (1940)

5) Rear Window (1954)

6) Destry Rides Again (1939)

7) Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)

8) The Glenn Miller Story (1954)

9) It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

10) Vertigo (1958)

You mentioned "The Philadelphia Story" (1940) which I also like, although I always think of Frankie & Bing's musical version "High Society" (1956) of that film.

Anyway, so many great films by Jimmy Stewart you could probably do a top 40!

<Optimal Play>

That's an excellent list and I especially like the one you put at the top of it.

NOBODY KILLS JIMMY STEWART'S BROTHER AND GETS AWAY WITH IT.

That was the tag line they used on an old movie channel I used to watch when they were showing a retrospective of <Jimmy Stewart> films.

You've got <N0B0DY> there for the very same reason.

  optimal play: <jessicafischerqueen: <Optimal Play> That's an excellent list and I especially like the one you put at the top of it.>

Thank you <jessica>.

Yep, any western that includes Jimmy, Lee & the Duke, and directed by John Ford, can't go wrong.

<NOBODY KILLS JIMMY STEWART'S BROTHER AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. That was the tag line they used on an old movie channel I used to watch when they were showing a retrospective of <Jimmy Stewart> films.>

IIRC that would probably refer to "The Man from Laramie" (1955).

I don't know if it actually was the tag line for that movie, but that's what the film was about.

<3) The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)>

Sounds interesting, if somewhat implausible.

Yo <Opti> intriguing list thank you!

Why do you put TMWSLV first ?

I think Jimmy in the Philly story has never been better ... do you think ?

I like your number four .. but not so sure about your number three ?

Whatever. There is a very very strong argument for James Stewart being the greatest and best actor of all time.

  optimal play: Harry, I put The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) first for the following reasons:

1. Great story
2. Great actors (Jimmy, Lee & Duke + supports)
3. Great director (John Ford)
4. Great scenes (Duke & Lee standoff, Duke teaching Jimmy how to shoot, the showdown, etc etc)
5. Classic western

Great enjoyment!

As I mentioned, I like The Philadelphia Story (1940), but the colourful musical version starring Frankie, Bing & Grace is probably more memorable due to the catchy tunes. Of course the b&w with Jimmy, Cary & Kate is still a great film.

Yeah, in The Shop Around the Corner (1940) apart from Jimmy, I especially like Margaret Sullavan.

You might be surprised just how many people like The Flight of the Phoenix (1965).

In reviewing my top 10 list, I just realised that I left off You Can't Take It With You (1938). This film is a gem. I notice it wasn't on your list either, but it actually won the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director (Frank Capra).

Anyway, I agree with you that there is indeed a strong argument for James Stewart being the greatest and best actor of all time.

And I think there's a few of his films I still haven't seen!

  wtpy: Harry, Agree with Philadelphia Story, might be my favorite role as well, but did you forget about Harvey?

  wtpy: I saw MWSLV, when I was a kid, seven or eight maybe, and not sure I got all the nuances, but Lee Marvin, particularly in first scene when he stops the stagecoach and breaks out bull whip, impressesed me as being a very mean man.

Harry listed Harvey (1950) at no.10

Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #238039)

Harvey (1950) was another favourite I couldn't fit into my top 10.

Jimmy made so many good films.

Lee Marvin is terrific as Liberty Valance!

One of the best ever villains in a western.
