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.

  WannaBe: Cryoto mining rigs, steam roller.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Thank you <WannaBe> my cryptocurrency IQ just dropped 30 points with your link. Mining rigs? What the heck are those? (actually I know but it's just mind boggling what the whole cryptocurrency idea has evolved into.)

On another note. I am slowly souring on the Netflix series The Crown. It's turning into a mishmash of situations that last a few minutes and then they just move on to something else equally pablum. Season 2 saw the Suez Canal crisis come and go while too much time is given to Prince Phillip's friend marital problems.

My finger is hovering over the delete button.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Fire the screen writers and production designers of the series "The Crown". It's a dizzying back and forth time travel and a mis-mash of historical events that tend to keep the viewer guessing where they are in time and what events are being presented.

Plus the time allotted to minor events is off putting. While greater events are discussed in passing or not at all. Entire one hour episodes are nothing but talk, talk, talk, about inconsequential events.

There are some interesting scenes but when you sit down to watch them with interest they suddenly disappear and another scene from something altogether different takes it's place.

Plus the character development is unbelievable. Are they really the Royals? The queen and princesses and princes of England or are the the Bundy's? I find myself yelling at the actress "Hey! You're the Queen. Act like one!"

I've invested too much time in the series so I think just I'll finish it. 2 out of 5 stars.

  diceman: <Prince Harry earning $20M for memoir>

One of the insider secrets to come out:

When the Royals sit down for breakfast in the morning, they greet each other with, <What up?>.

<earning $20M>

He needs money?
Sounds like that <rich getting richer> stuff.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman> Although I said I was going to continue watching The Crown I finally gave up. Season 3 has new actors because of aging. I missed the beautiful Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret. And just as the characters got old so did the series. I quit halfway through season 3. Royal watching must be a very strange thing.

  technical draw: The great Vinheteiro. A virtuoso pianist but plays for enjoyment. Lots of fun to watch and always silent:

Check out his other videos, he's a blast!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Oh, yeah, I know him, and have seen his channel before; funny (but not the scale of you, or me), he also does "Classical Music that you know but don't know what it's name" Or something like that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: The better "Question" is, identify the little boy in the portrait hanging on the wall, and the the (schooner?) boat painting, too.

Plus his menorah is broken, it's in 4 different pieces.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> Yeah he does a lot of those "you don't know the name of" videos. The boy in the portrait is probably Mozart. Also there is no law that says the menorah candle holders have to be together, just close enough to be seen when lit.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Physicist and Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg has passed away. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for his work on subatomic particle interactions and other things that I don't understand. RIP
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: And if you think Vinheteiro is just a good pop music piano player think again. Here he plays some really difficult classical pieces. And his trademark stare and finger pointing just adds to the fun:

  technical draw: Just like bitcoin I can never understand the mathematical operator called the Hamiltonian.

I know the definition: "The Hamiltonian of a system is the sum of the kinetic energies of all the particles, plus the potential energy of the particles associated with the system."

But for some reason I cannot internalize it and apply it. Oh, well, I guess we can't know everything.

Premium Chessgames Member

<TD> you are still missing the most important definition of the Hamiltonian. This science will help explain:

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: Darn, JFQ beat me to it.

What's next?
A horse named <The Quantum Mechanic>?

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <jessicafischerqueen:

<TD> you are still missing the most important definition of the Hamiltonian. This science will help explain:>

So you take the sum of all the horses kinetic energy, plus the potential energy of the Mudders, and this helps you pick winners.

This sounds like something I could sell.
(Like td's Pick-3 system)

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: No wonder I couldn't understand the Hambletonian, I was misspelling it all along. Thanks <jfq> and <diceman>.

Also never bet the favorite in a horse race, you might lose all your beads.

Premium Chessgames Member

It is my pleasure to help, my dear <TD>.

And trust <diceman>! Is there any topic he is not expert on? I mean really.

Premium Chessgames Member

I once used <TD's> Pick-3 system to ensure I was hoarding the proper "3 ply" toilet tissue.

I can report that <TD's> system is a winner!

Now I have over 35,000 metric tons of 3 ply toilet tissue in my apartment.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Now I have over 35,000 metric tons of 3 ply toilet tissue in my apartment.>

35,000 metric tons? Is your apartment in Trump Tower? (The whole tower that is). Just joking. I have no idea how much a metric ton is.

Anyway, <jfq>, you have to pay me royalties for using my patented system. (In US dollars please, not toilet paper)

Premium Chessgames Member

<TD> But Royale Brand 3-ply is legal currency in the USA. I recently cashed in several million ply's worth of Bitcoin on the Silk Road exchange.
