Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess games.com 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: <Z free or die>. Thanks I see him now. Chubby guy with head full of gray hair. Of course the opening is for clarinet but you can see the soprano sax player to the left also playing.

technical draw: <jfq> That was some great fiddling on your link. BTW "I saw the light" was sung by the late country singer Johnny Cash in an episode of "Columbo". Cash was the bad guy that Columbo trapped.

  technical draw: TD's romance lesson #046:

To make a woman happy and make her want to stay with you you must learn where to kiss her.

So where do you kiss her?

In Paris, London, Madrid, Singapore, and other places.

Have you learned todays lesson?

  jessicafischerqueen:

<TD> ok, but that all sounds like a lot of work eh? In Canada we usually kiss her out behind the woodshed. Probably they had woodsheds in your home prefecture, but probably not for the last 100 years or so....

  WannaBe: <JFQ> Ah... Canadians, them hopeless romantics. 🤦‍♂️😍

  technical draw: <jfq> Behind the woodshed? You're such a romantic. My wife hasn't allowed me to kiss her for the last 30 years. Then she stopped allowing me to hold her hands too. And I'm a Mr. Romantic. So I suffer in silence. Someone quick send me $20!

  technical draw: I just finished the Canadian film "Hyena Road". This is about a Canadian army group doing something in Afghanistan. It's a bit convoluted with people who are either friends or foes. It's not completely understood who's who. I didn't like the ending since it seemed formulaic. 2.5 out of 5.

  WannaBe: Probably because you don't understand Canada-ese, and forgot to turn on CC.

(CC is Canada-ese Caption, for those un-edu-ma-cated)

  technical draw: Looking at the United States Secretary of Defense, the longest serving secretary was Donald Rumsfeld under George W. Bush. It is strange because if you look at the list, there are a lot secretaries that belong to the opposite political party of the president who named him.

Barack Obama (democratic) appointed a republican SecD. Also Bill Clinton appointed a republican. Also there are a lot of SecD that were independents. This is not seen in other cabinet nominees.

I guess you really have to know something to be Secretary of Defense.

  technical draw: I just finished seeing "42" the story of Jackie Robinson who broke the baseball color line in 1947. It was so-so. Started slow and picked up a little towards the end but not much. And I didn't realize Harrison Ford was in the movie until one hour had past. And he had the primary lead! The racism was formula with good ole boys hurling their racial epithets in front of the house like we've seen in every southern movie. Also I have never liked the late Chadwick Boseman. He always seems so wooden.

2.5 out of 5.

  WannaBe: Elīna Garanča that's my final and last future ex-wife. Wow. 😍😘🥰💑👌♥🏆

  WannaBe: Now if Elīna Garanča do the Offenbach Can-Can for me (dancing, of course), I'll buy her a house, a car, and pay off her student loan. Heck I'll even pay off her credit card(s).

🤦‍♂️😂🤪

  WannaBe: The guys are dancing with flat shoes, the ladies are <INCREDIBLE>, heels and balancing themselves, while kicking and prancing around, the split (from 2:10-2:15 give or take) was <WOW>.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3I...

She's my "new" future ex-wife. I'm that old 81 years old perv enjoying it all.

  technical draw: Two quick movies that didn't pass the 10 minute mark. 1. <Polar> Supposed hitman movie but everyone is having a barrel of fun. Stopped watching after the first hit because it was simply preposterous with a post hit party. What a waste 1/2 out of 5.

Second is <Cuba and the Cameraman>. A helter-skelter, now we're here, now we're there. It is more about the cameraman than about Cuba. 1 out of 5.

  WannaBe: I do the can-can dance all the time, when I go visit the local watering hole and drink cans of liquid, and there's a line at the Water Closet.

You see me standing there doing the Can-Can dance. (Isn't the term "Going to the Can" same as going to the Water Closet?)

May-22-22
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe>. Ah, yes. The liquid can-can dance. You grab your crotch and dance up and down. Of course if a girl passes by you drop your crotch and pretend everything is ok but muttering to yourself, "go away, please, I, gulp, am ready to explode"

Forget the can-can dance, let's talk about the movie "The War of the Worlds" with Tom Cruise. I liked it and recommend it. It's non-stop action with great performances by Cruise and a very young Dakota Fanning. Directed by Steven Spielberg they spare no expense in extras and special effects.

Cruise and Fanning get about 99% screen time as they try to escape the malicious tripods. The ending is contrived but it doesn't take away from the general feeling of anxiety and despair. I give it 4 of 5 stars.

  technical draw: I've heard of the word "flak" which I associated with the puffs of smoke against allied bombers in WW2. But I didn't actually know what it stood for. But I know now:

<Flak typically refers to the anti-aircraft fire coming at one from anti-aircraft guns, derived during World War II from the German Flugabwehrkanone (Flak)> which translates to air defense cannon (or gun).

  technical draw: TD's you learn something new everyday #48: Most people know that the battleship USS Utah was sunk at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7 1941. But I bet you don't know this fact: One former sailor on the Utah was the infamous outlaw John Dillinger. He got in constant trouble while in the navy deserting several times until he was dismissed for the good of the Navy. He lasted a whole 6 months in the service. I don't think any of the movies about Dillinger mention this fact.

  technical draw: I post a lot of critiques of movies but what are my top ten movies? Here's a list in no particular order:

1. Giant
2. Lawrence of Arabia
3. Wake in Fright (Outback)
4. Schindler's List
5. Fitzcarraldo
6. Flight of the Phoenix (original)
7. Saving Private Ryan
8. The Godfather
9. Apocalypse Now
10. The Deer Hunter

That's it as far as I remember. I might change it as I remember other movies.

May-23-22
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: My list has changed because I remembered two other movies. Here's the new list:

1. Giant

4. Schindler's List
5. The Matrix
6. Inception
7. Saving Private Ryan
8. The Godfather
9. Apocalypse Now
10.The Deer Hunter

Again, changes can be made.

  technical draw: My mother bought a Sabbath stove. That's right a Sabbath stove. It means you can set it so it doesn't operate on the Sabbath. It's a regular stove and oven by Frigidaire and bought at Sears. I just found out today about that special feature. Isn't technology great?
