The Court Jester with Danny Kaye!

Wow I had forgotten all aboot this. I saw on on "TV" in the 1960s.

lolol

Sep-12-19  Boomie: <Jessie: Danny "Stubby" Kaye>

Little known fact that Danny Kaye moonlighted as Stubby Kaye whenever banter fell out of favor with the hoi polloi.

Here is scientific proof. Obviously "Stubby" was a career challenge for the makeup crew.

  Paint My Dragon: <Jessie James>

Blimey, how does anyone get things done with the Chess World Cup in full flow? I’m addicted and it eats up a lot of free time.

I totally agree re: the Bulgaria game. England always adopt this laid back approach against weak opposition and you’re left wondering whether there’ll be an extra gear available when it matters. As you say, <Pound Sterling> was holding his own against foreign currencies, while <HurryCane> was now and then a storm category 5, but prone to dropping to a gentle breeze for extended periods. Very little to cheer about, but we did at least win comfortably and <Billy Bathgate> was honest enough to say that the intensity must improve.

<Bronstein> is one of my favourite players, not least because I played him in a simul and got to hear some of his stories first hand when I was a kid. I prepared what I thought was an incredibly clever line in the Pirc – fresh from a borrowed library book. The author gave the line as something that had never been played before, but was worthy of a closer look. Each time he came to my board there was an amused look on his face. It was obvious that he knew ‘stuff’ about the line and I got the impression that he was surprised that it was on the board. Of course, once the prep came to an end, I was quickly outplayed and lost a piece. I still have the signed scoresheet somewhere.

I quite agree about the Sosonko book. It’s a gem. It initially felt odd to me, reading about all of these personality defects, because my memory was of a guy with a very kind face, who was giving up his time (I would imagine for a pittance) just to amuse a few kids. Now, thanks to Sosonko, I see that in a slightly different light – like many other ‘world class’ chess players it has to be said, he was simply enjoying the adulation. It’s hard to dispute any of it, because I don’t see how Kasparov would write Forewords for, and be so praiseworthy of Sosonko, if he felt that the tone was wrong or over embellished. All of his books are wonderful to read and a great legacy to chess history.

As for the <Furstenberg> book ... well, it’s disappointing if Bronstein, in his final days, saw it as a regret, but it is hugely entertaining. Might also be worth bearing in mind that peoples’ thought processes can get very muddled and contorted when they are so close to death.

I’m also a big fan of <Secret Notes>, Bronstein’s book with Voronkov, that details many of his visits to the UK, who he stayed with, what their dog was called, and what flavour of ice cream tickled his fancy. Again, it may have been penned by his co-author, but there’s a lot of very personal experiences in there, that only he or his wife could have known about. I suppose ghost writing doesn’t have to be completely negative, if meticulously based on the notes gained from meetings and phone calls. I think Bronstein, in hindsight, just saw the book as putting a superficial, ordinary slant on his public persona … almost detracting from his aura as some god-like ‘creative genius’. As readers, we like to see the human side and are less judgmental than he may have thought. It does seem, from Sosonko’s book that Bronstein had latterly started comparing his career to that of Botvinnik, and was concluding that Botvinnik had far more gravitas. Well, yes, but it’s a ridiculous thing to do.

I went to see the new <Tarantino> movie yesterday. Slow start, but it eventually develops into a nice portrait of late 60s Hollywood (tales of Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski, Charlie Manson etc.). The attention to detail and evocative soundtrack slowly get you hooked, just in time for some trademark QT bloody violence. Hopefully I’ve given nothing away there. It was good. Would recommend.

<Potrzebie Footy>

Yes it's been footy season with a vengeance and I accidentally overindulged by watching way too much footy.

Highlights included <Norwich> world historical match v. <Man City> and <Spurs> putting someone to the sword for the first time in 10 months (for at least the 1st half).

Lowlights included another very suspect <Blighty> second half against <Kosovo>, and another "Spursy" performance against <Olympia Dukakis> in the OOFA. I can't stand it when they give <Gary Limburger> yet another opportunity to trot out his lame "Spursy" jokes.

But he's right. <D'Om Bumblebee> was not match fit, neither was <Deli Fallible>- that's ok, you need to play them to get fit, but what's not ok is fielding a lineup v <Dukakis> that looks like they had never been trained to play together. Extremely poor match preparation and I put the blame squarely on <Pocket Chess>.

There is something very wrong with Spurs and it's only partly to do with a total lack of consistency and understanding between <Levy> and <Ponchontrain>, although that's obviously a huge problem. It is time to face facts- <Ponchontrain> and <Spurs> may no longer be a fit.

He's a great manager, but he's showing a bit too much of the "screw loose" as time goes on. Kind of like how <Jose Merhino Sheep> slowly goes batshit crazy over time with a given club, until he's "full retard" and the club goes under.

Back later with more-

Sorry I'm late. The kitchen caught fire when my Snickerdoodle experiment got away from me.

So...what's the topic?

Sep-22-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen:

<Teem> Not sure what the topic is, but what is a "Snickerdoodle." I have to say it sounds ominous, if not menacing.

Is it a horror movie amirite.

Oh I did think about you a few weeks ago and forgot to mention-

Do you know <Yaz's> "Chess Duels of the Mind"?

This has to be the best chess book I have ever explored. <Yaz> not only gives copious notes to his games, he actually tells us what he was thinking at each juncture in a given game. This is invaluable to the chess student, because we can easily understand a description of what he was thinking, as opposed to trying to parse a list of lines eh? But <Yaz> also includes the lines- making this the greatest instructional chess book since "According to Hoyle," if I'm not mistaken.

The only other topic I can think of is that my <Spurs> are playing like a bunch of sick nuns. Again.

Every time I watch them play, it's like a dagger to my heart.

Sep-24-19  Boomie: From out of the murky depths of the oven comes The Snickerdoodle. It sounds like someone who would sneak up and tickle you unmercifully.

Funny how, when our heroes play like toothless crones, we all feel like underlings.

Alas, I have no chess books but I am aware of Yaz's fondness for teaching. He has become quite good at it according to the blogosphere.

These are troubled times. THFC and MUFC are both trying the patience of their fans, big time.

Yes, <Pocket Eno>’s body language looks a bit too casual, or disinterested – almost like he is lining up a new job ( - in Miniature Roxy Music perhaps?).

Meanwhile, <Ollie Salt Shaker> needs to add some pepper to the recipe, because everything is unseasonably flat right now. The management team is devoid of ideas, the senior players are totally out of form, and the youngsters are still largely untried. Those who should now be ‘broken in’ (Lingard, Rashford and Martial) have repeatedly shown that they can’t be consistent at this level, yet it seems Salt Shaker, like <Merino Sheep> before him, won’t ever admit it. A faint glimmer of hope lies in Dan James and Mason Greenwood, but they are still an ocean of vinegar away from being automatic picks.

I was at a <Belinda Carlisle> concert on Saturday night while <Match of the Day> was on, and didn’t even bother to record it. That’s how fed up I am. Hopefully I’ll escape the doldrums at some point, but for now I can’t even take heart from NUFC, as they too are playing without any conviction. Sick nuns you say? Yes, that’s the term, and especially apt for a team in playing in black and white.

Well, you predicted good things for <Tammy Wynette> and you weren’t wrong. He is knocking them in against the weaker teams, so the only question is, can he do it against quality defenders? I hope he can, because England are very light on strikers right now.

I’m definitely keen to see <James Maddison> in the England central midfield. His progress is quite refreshing and it’s the one area where England are struggling – Rice is okay, but more of a sweeping, defensive type who can play the ball out. Maddison would be a more creative, attacking option, and I think complementary to Rice, so I’d have Henderson step down to make way.

<Go Teem!>

Yes quite right it is curious. I think that becoming an athletic supporter involves some considerable portion of narcissism. The flip side to the personal feeling of worthlessness is the ill-gotten feeling of omnipotence that accompanies the triumphs of your <Teem>.

On directly related news, today is the anniversary of the passing of legendary Scottish footballer <Jock Strapp>, who garnered as much athletic support as any in footy history, with the possible exception of Manchester United's <Wan Nutsacka>.

This "wedding tackle" highlight reel will confirm <Nutsacka's> prodigious skill in denying balls to his opponents:

Nutsacka Sweet Tacka

Could be a new craze for the Xmas season.

No denying the block and tackle on that rig.

Your narcissy theory provoked a memory that is somewhat connected. I went to see Krishnamurti. After one of his wonderfully bewildering talks, the audience applauded. "Stop it!" he said. "You are only applauding for yourselves." They were clapping to say "Look at me. I understood all of it." K was profound in the extreme.

A sad indictment that he is regularly our best player after being at Old Trafford for all of five minutes.

<Tim> If I read correctly, you are suggesting we market a testicle flavored sweet for the Christmas season?

I like where you're taking this. Let's run it up the flag pole and see if the money salutes.

<Portmenteau Mushrooms>

I have seen a lot of good footy over the last three weeks. Thank goodness there are more than two clubs. Yesterday I listened to 90 minutes of straight talk from <Gary Neville> about what United have to do. He was dead right about Liverpool a few years back, as I've mentioned before: Get rid of the keeper and spend several hundred million pounds to bring in a proper keeper and center back he said.

Gary's prescription for United: It will take 2-3 transfer windows and they need to spend at least 500 million pounds and this time pick some decent players instead of the two duds they already wasted 900 million pounds on. Gazza says ManU will remain emasculated and adrift for at least two seasons and more if they don't do what he says. He said all this during United's last match. When <Rashford> just sat down on the pitch and didn't get up again, I don't think he was injured. I think he had been listening to Gazza's commentary on a blue tooth.

They better listen to Gazza he's always right eh?

I almost finished watching every single Premier match now from week 6.

Matches of the week very exciting full of drama and fruity footy: <Norwich v Man City> and <Arsenal v Aston Villa>.

10/10 for both.

Absolutely right. It’s hard to think of a good purchase made by any manager since <Massey Ferguson>. <Luke Shaw> was decent, but he was mercilessly scorned by <Jose MoreVino> and even now, is inexplicably playing second fiddle to Ashley Young, who is normally dreadful.

Recently, <Wan Moussaka> and <The Magwitch> were obviously fine acquisitions, but they need some competent, committed midfielders and strikers to play with. <Poggers> ought to have been good, but £90m +? Never that good. <Sanchez> was a disaster, but in some ways more understandable – it was a roll of the dice that enabled the exit of that other famous dud <MuckitUp Hairy’Un>. But generally, when you spend big bucks, you want someone who is non-temperamental and dependable, week in, week out, especially down the spine of the team. There is never enough attention paid to this crucial aspect of personality.

As I said earlier, MUFC can write off Mata and Matic (and Young) for reasons of form and age. Lingard, Rashford and Martial are all too similar, don’t mesh together well, aren’t consistent, and don’t get enough goals. <Mason Greenwood> has got more goals from open play in the last two weeks than Rashford has in 6 months.

I’d tell <Salt Shaker> to start selling those six turkeys at Christmas, buy one GOOD player immediately and save the rest of the cash for summer. The remaining youngsters would probably ensure a mid-table finish and gain from the experience. Of course, the problem is then attracting good players with no European football next season, but what the heck, money talks … and if ManU can’t afford it, then who can? Other clubs have wealthier backers, but ManU probably still have the largest revenue of any club.

Yeah, hard to forget that Norwich-Man City game. What a scorcher. I did enjoy the Arsenal game too, but I don’t get to watch whole games … where do you find the time?

Bluetooth headphones, enabling some sage words to be targetted at your player of choice sounds a great idea. A fan lottery every week, where ten lucky winners (the previous week’s best performer is exempt) get to do this, would raise billions over the season and would give those over-inflated egos a deserved good kicking. Please arrange this ASAP!!!

Ever seen a better goal than this one? Wow … the distance and arrow-like precision is something else …

What? Haven't you ever heard the Nutsacka Sweet. By Chaicopsies, I believe.
