Potpourri, laughs and other nonsense!
‘Behave yourself Sonny…or you get the FINGER!’
IN PRAISE OF DIFFICULT WOMEN:
Orgasmic! Don’t go see her for your prostrate-exam…unless you are KINKY!
”Who are you calling a sick, fat, ugly faggott?”
MEANWHILE, GRANNY GOES FOR A RIDE…
The look on the dog’s face says it all!
More anti-communist literature from the ColdWar era…here showing Lenin as a sexist dirty old man (is that Stalin right below him slapping the woman?) I remember being a teenager in Montreal browsing bookstores for the first time: I was shocked by the amount of garbage propaganda-novels positioned at strategic locations of these bookstores. Nice-Butt, though! Atleast the cover artist had style…
Janet and Michael who?
Romance. Newly weds, no doubt, redneck style!
Ramsey has such style!
“Chess improves your concentration and thinking skills!” says Baby Aidan. LINK
I would be afraid to listen to this…Mother Teresa singing perhaps! But no, the LP is a serious work of art: “Music for Intelligent Young Ladies” Willy Albimoor and his Orchestra ARC Records (London) (1963) Albimoor played in Brussels – (not chess but club dates and on radio and television) – before cutting this debut disc in Gr. Britain.” LINK
”Frank Lago (lighting cigarette) was another original Elder of Synanon. He came into Synanon in 1961. here he is playing chess with Kandy Latson with John Peterson looking on. Frank was my first husband. We married in 1971. He was a talented painter and artist.” LINK
The photo above sort of reminds me a lot of when I first started playing chess…the players could smoke at the board. And the messes one would have to clean up after the game…ash everywhere!
The reality of things: Jane Withers plays chess with her bodyguard between set ups. LINK
Happier times. Singer Eartha Kitt playing chess with her husband William McDonald. The two divorced,early and Eartha explains HERE why the marriage failed. To cut to the chase, William’s rating was not high enough!
Idris Elba. One of my favourite actors! ”Whether it’s music or acting, that creativity all comes from the same source.”
FROM THE HISTORY BOOKS!
Good for business! Curiously, much the same group of business people who built the Titanic also had large controlling interests in newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic. What they lost when the ship went down, they more than made up for in booming sales!
London, ww2. German V1 about to crash on some innocent people
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT FOR WOMEN
A woman sentenced to starvation death, Mongolia 1913. Normally it would 2-3 months before the condemned finally died. LINK
Lvov (Ukraine) WW2, probably 1941. A pogrom, soon after the Nazis ”liberated” them from the Russians (any similarity with what is happening today in Ukraine is more than coincidental). A jewish woman is stripped of her clothing and forced to flee…she was soon savagely murdered. Her crime: being a Jew. LINK
Same link as above. Stalingrad. A red-cross nurse is hanged while German soldiers laugh and have a good time. The only good Russian is a dead Russian, eh? For many ignorant bastards today who criticize and refuse to understand Russia’s actions in the Crimea, they probably regret that Hitler did not finish the job!
Russian woman holding her child before being given a bullet in the back of her head by Nazi soldier. Same link as above. Where do they get these fucking sick photographers?
A PIC IS WORTH A 1,000 WORDS…
LINK Congrats to Katya, the wife of Sergei Karjakin, for patiently sitting pretty while her husband today won this year’s strongest chess tournament in Stavanger, Norway. It is the wife who usually suffers more, though in Sergei’s case there was probably not much suffering as things went pretty smooth. Congrats to both!!
Karjakin, a Ukrainian born Russian, played a great tournament, always in control, even when he did not have the advantage. Agdestein played very well also, and still won rating points even though he ended in last place. Both he and Kramnik seemed to collapse at the end of the tournament. As for Magnus, he came in second place and lost 5-rating points. No doubt the high-point of his tournament was finding out that FIDE will organize the WCC in Sochi later in November, even though the president of the Norwegian Chess Federation still has not given up hope to find a sponsor for Norway.
And while we are handing out congrats, CONGRATS to Nigel Short for having the good sense to treat viewers with some original guitar magic! Being a commentator–instead of the player that Nigel is–is no easy task, especially since the daily commentary went on for hours and hours …and hours and hours…EVERY round. Even though I enjoyed the insight provided into the games being played, and especially the post match analysis with the players, I can NOT but come to the conclusion that if this is the best that the organized chess world can do to promote the game to the non-chessplaying world, then something is VERY wrong. There lacks spontaneity, excitement and PULSE! I would prefer to watch the entire 2-year gestation period of an elephant, including when it gives birth, and I think that I speak for millions out there on the net who visited the official website of the tournament.
ANOTHER CANADIAN IN BUDAPEST
The Hungarian superstar GM Lajos Portisch giving a simul earlier this week. Here we see 14-year old Canadian Ashley Tapp playing. She is currently studying and training in Budapest.
Ashely was the ”last man standing”! Congrats!!
