Member since Oct-01-06 · Last seen Aug-17-18
NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

Update: No. 8, "The Temple," and No.9, "The Throne," are now in print, with No. 10, "The Silver Trumpet,"due for release any day now.

  playground player: Joe Collidge has seen an early documentary about how to cope with Climbit Change.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxR...

Furthermore, liberalism must be destroyed.

Aug-10-18  JimNorCal: "Climb it" change? Such as scaling the twin peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro (*squints eyes*)?

<Lee> ahhhaha ahahaha

Well I certainly wasn't expecting to see that!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxR...

I'm glad I did though. What a great trailer.

BUT THESE ARE PEOPLE- YOU DON'T HANDLE THEM LIKE ANIMALS

I think any movie with <Long Chaney> in it has to be a good movie.

  playground player: <jessicafischerqueen> Joe Collidge is in awe of Lon Chaney having his hand amputated and replaced by a hook just for this coveted movie role.

  playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> It looks like Hungary's new government isn't kidding about getting rid of Gender Studies at its publicly funded universities.

https://leeduigon.com/2018/08/14/hu...

Anybody got a job opening for a genderologist?

Aug-14-18  JimNorCal: I'd say come to the US.
https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/304...

"Gender, Ethnic Studies profs earn about $12k more than peers: “A new report based on salary data from the 2017-2018 academic year reveals that professors of ‘Area, Ethnic, Cultural, Gender, and Group Studies’ earn almost $12,000 more than the average professor, overall. Notably, professors of subjects like Gender and Ethnic Studies also made about $15,000 more per year than their counterparts in fields like Math, Biology, and the Physical Sciences.”

  playground player: <JimNorCal> Yet another reason why we should de-fund the universities. They have ceased to serve a useful purpose.
Aug-15-18  JimNorCal: Two thumbs up :) :)

While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, <"Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed." He replied, <"Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.">>

  playground player: <Steamed Colleagues> Oh, boy, just what we needed! Yet another new "societal norm" dreamed up by some dozy dork at a looniversity. Make way for the sex-bots!

They're supposed to--ahem!--make our marriages better. Getting it on with the toaster-oven does that for some people.
