Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

technical draw: Reading a story about a naked man running up and down the aisle of an Alaska Airlines plane while in flight I noticed the painting on the aircraft rudder. I can't figure out what it is but it looks like Bob Marley, mon.

technical draw: <<td> I would be interested in your responses to the survey questions.> The only thing I know about guns is what I learned in the army: "This is my rifle, this is my gun. One is for shooting, one is for fun."

technical draw: <cormier> That's John 6:27. The word "work" is better translated as labour or strife. Since one must work to eat or feed family. But the striving should be reserved for the things that are of the spirit.

technical draw: Thank you <Annie K>. Now, can you lobby for me and get me out of 11th place into, let's say, 10 3/4? <WinKing><There's always 'Baby Face Nelson'. ;)> Good name! Maybe I can use that handle just for the Chess Bookie game.

  technical draw: <saffuna> Thanks for your input. Although I say I am binge watching NYPD Blue there is really a lot of time in the day to take up other matters. I was going to give a conference on "The Good Samaritan" but had to change it thanks to good points given to me by <optimal play and The Focus>.

I will now give the conference on the more challenging Exodus 4:24-26.

See? I can multitask!

  technical draw: I'm almost at the end of my binge watching of NYPD Blue. Very exciting season 11 episode 10.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I'm on the last season (12) of NYPD Blue. It appears to be a good final season so far. Episode 3 has short appearance by the late James Avery of Prince of Bel-Air fame.
May-12-18  falso contacto: Yo estuve viendo unas series muy graciosas españolas: El ministerio del tiempo y La casa de papel. Y ahora estoy viendo una ucraniana que parece la parodia de Lie to me: the Sniffer. Graciosísima. Hay que leer un tocazo salvo cuando dicen "cuatro".
May-13-18  falso contacto: A lot of silence around me. I get it.

  Count Wedgemore: Hi, <falso contacto>. I speak Italian, so I understand Spanish reasonably well. There are some good Spanish TV shows, no doubt. I've seen a couple, but are not too familiar with them. I will check out the ones you mention if I can find them.

'Lie To Me' was a good show, by the way. I think the leading protagonist, Tim Roth was great. Too bad it got cancelled rather quickly (two seasons, I think?)

<technical draw> That was some serious binge watching! I remember binge watching the Stargate SG-1 series some years ago. But I took some breaks here and then. So perhaps it wasn't "hardcore binging" that I did. Sounds like you've been watching several NYPD Blue episodes every day lately. Must be exhausting but fun, I suppose. But what are you going to watch next?

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: OK, it's over! The great NYPD Blue bing watch ended today. 30 days, 261 episodes, 12 seasons. It was a lot of fun. Some episodes were great and some so-so and some terrible. The middle portion was the best. Well, I'll continue watching Kung-Fu but with no hurry.

Some may think I had a bout of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) but no worry I got a lot of other things done between episodes.

<falso contacto> Esa serie ucraniana como se titula?

May-13-18  falso contacto: the Sniffer.
May-13-18  falso contacto: <TD> Ajajaa no lo puedo creer. 261 episodios. Mortal. Ciao <CW>! Anch'io parlo italiano ogni tanto. Praticamente quando non sono circondato da argentini. Che non capita spesso. In this forum I speak both Spanish and English, when I find the words.

  technical draw: Speaking of watching TV:

In 1961, FCC chairman Newton Minow said that people watching television would see a "vast wasteland". (meaning there were not many TV shows at that time). But one eager viewer wrote to Minow asking him what time "Vast Wasteland" came on.

  diceman: <Newton Minow >

That's a funny name.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <<Newton Minow > That's a funny name.>

It's not funny. It is the name of one of the greatest scientist of all time: Pyrus Minow.

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <Pyrus Minow.>

I know the dad, PaPyrus was a paper magnate!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman><I know the dad, PaPyrus was a paper magnate!>

I bet you googled Pyrus Minow to see if he was an actual person. I know you did. Admit it!

On some of the planes, they also had an Eskilarry or an Eskicurly.

It was "Celebrate Greatest Scientist Year."

That's Pyrus Minow
