  twinlark: Hi Jess

Just thought I'd touch base and let you know the latest offering from Aussie cinema. There's a six part series of one hour per episode called <The Code> that started screening on TV tonight.

It will be posted on the ABC website tomorrow for anyone who missed it. In the next day, it will be available at http://iview.abc.net.au/. It is a political thriller with a decent cast including David Wenham, Lucy Lawless, Aaron Pederson and a bunch of other talents.

Here's some more info from the official website: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/t...

Enjoy!

On the other hand, Brian Almeida considers this book to be excellent - see his review: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/revie...

and, if you are interested, A J Gillam's response to that review: http://www.chesscafe.com/skittles/s...

Also note that Winter says that <proper sourcing> was missing, not <sourcing>. The book may be of value still.

<Travertine Marble>

heh thanks for the great <Warren Z-bone> track. Yep Halloween is just around the corner, and I've already taken to scaring my students on a daily basis. They only thing keeping them from telephoning the police is the thought of all the candy I'm going to give them.

<toboe> Here is another excellent <Bowie> track from the "Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert", in which he plays with others who did the same song on their records: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ6T...

Thanks <Doggimus> for the heads up- I did indeed catch the first episode, but I'm afraid I didn't like it well enough to be interested in watching future episodes. Unrealistic dialogue is a death knell for a plot set up that requires verisimilitude. I have yet to see an Aussie TV show that I really got into, which is a bit strange given how much I love the cinema.

Might you give me a few recommendations of Aussie series past and present? I may well be proceeding from a position of simple ignorance on this topic.

You've reminded me of something my Dad used to quote to people, generally at the most inappropriate moments possible:

"Don't shoot the piano player in a whore house."

<Karpova> Thanks for the extra links on "the book."

I'm still going to wait. I may or may not buy it in future. I have to admit that I loved Andy's new <Botvinnik> biography, even though it's not sourced properly, as usual for him. Sad to say.

For narrative, he's far and away my favorite chess history writer.

I'll see how interesting <Mr. Gillam's> "Ostend Tournament Book" is when it arrives.

<Unrealistic dialogue is a death knell for a plot set up that requires verisimilitude.>

Not sure what you mean. It's relevance to the plot, the way the dialogue meshes with the plot or the idiom? Seemed all right to me, and I'm generally fussy about Aussie stuff.

The most unrealistic bit I saw was the brothers' car parking in front of Parliament House (not allowed). And the food vendor parked under King's Avenue Bridge (also not allowed).

<I have yet to see an Aussie TV show that I really got into, which is a bit strange given how much I love the cinema.>

Guess they're not everyone's cuppa chai.

Anyhoo, no wukkers cob. Letcha know if anything new peers over the parapet.

  Fusilli: <JFQ> Should I be a fan of this band? Maybe they need a beach head with the record labels in Nashville. Should I offer my services? I have the right name to be their manager!

And if they need a local lawyer, there is <Martinez>. He can even put them up in his 32-room manor when they visit town.

<They Call the Wind Mariana>

Most definitely! I'd get on the copyright case immediately too. This band is known for their deep lyrics, and should prove a cash seacow for you.

Our friend's new law firm of <Martinez, Martinez, Martinez and Martinez> has already recently triumphed in an important suit heard before the <Nashville Municipal Family Court of Appeal and Parking Tickets>.

This was the infamous "I thought that was a dog in my Azaleas so I turned the garden hose on him, sorry it was your kid" case.

There are rumors of a merger between <Martinez, Martinez, Martinez & Martinez> and <Chang, Chang, Chang & Chang>, the two most prominent law firms in the city. Have you heard anything?
