Favorite word on a forum:



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:

TD playing the violin in Carnegie Hall or somewhere else.

"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. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

  technical draw: No doubt about it. Mozart was a jazz man. In the Requiem above you can hear the blues horn in the Tuba Mirum. Also a lot of his piano sonatas have jazz scales. So I proclaim Mozart the first Jazz composer!

  technical draw: Last Saturday was my mother's birthday. We had a great family reunion wth cousins, nieces, and nephews coming in from different states.

Of course I couldn't let this crowd go away without doing my stand-up. The first one was great, a routine I call left-right similar to Abbott and Costello's Who's on first. It was really great and I got a huge applause.

Of course I couldn't let good enough alone so I did a second routine with a tepid response. That didn't stop me though because i did a third routine and really bombed!

Which proves the saying "always leave them wanting for more". The only thing I got out of it was a horrendous sore throat that now I have to go to the doctor tomorrow. Who said comedy was funny?

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: <TD> I can see your problem right away.

You should have reversed the order. Next time, instead of 1-2-3, try 3-2-1. Then they would have forgotten the crummy first set and you would have been heralded as a comedic hero.

This review was not free. I expect payment of $20, preferably in small bills. Please leave them in a paper sack on a bench at the bus station.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Well I just got back from the Doc. One thing I learned is when you think you have a cold or the flu forget all the OTC medicines. They're a big rip off. Head for the doctor and get some real medicine; antivirals or anti-bacterials. Treat the cause and not the symptoms.

<TheFocus> . Thanks for that advice but I'm getting rid of routines 2 and 3. 1 is a winner and I have another one in production to replace the losers. I left your $20 at the bus station but a bum picked it up 2 seconds after I dropped it off. Man those guys are fast!

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: That bums me out. I was counting on that money.

Uh... can I borrow $20.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <TheFocus> <Uh... can I borrow $20.>

No. But if you write a good joke I might pay $20 for it. (emphasis on might).

I'm no <WannaBe>.
