    I resent that!

    Now that's what I call a coincidence!
     
    I suppose that being so labelled, at least it's still on topic.

    So, Atomic_Rift, how's the Chess coming along?

    Cool - its encouraging to know you're still getting into it!

    I see you're also a Beatles-affecionado. I actually saw them play, in Sydney, in 1964 (all these  years and thats the best I can come up with!) And I remember nothing at all, except screaming, stupid noise. Of course, in later years I came to prefer the Stones -and pretended I always had. It was the cooler by far! And the girls....

    It was about then I learnt chess. And also to swim properly, from the legendary coach Forbes Carlile(ask somone near-dead to explain. A Canadian ?... another Commonwealth member could well know! Or there's Google, I guess.)
    My brother it was taught who me chess.  He would beat me at Chess for decades but after a year: never again in the pool.

    I don't know which has given me more ...pleasure(if that's the word?) I think for viscreal pleasure, of course it's the water: especially the surf. Body-surfing is almost the best of any/everything!
    Chess is different:  Sublime - maybe that's the word? No. It can so approach the ...essence.
    And to keep On Topic...you keep it sharp with the Sport of Emporers, Atomic_Rift !
    Perhaps a game sometime...?

    Oh yes! Chess is very fun! 

    Yeah! xD That's from my Dad. He loves them and now I'm getting into them. :)

    Cool, my Dad taught me chess, and he has taught me well but now I'm starting to overtake him.

    Haha. :D You're more daring then I am! I love staying inside with a chessboard and presumably a good chess player! ;)

    Sure! I'd like that! :)

    According to my mum -I did mention the memory bit?- the luckiest 'drummer' in the world certainly was...performing.

    Wow...sounds like a bit of a sneer at Ringo there.

  • #190

    Au contraire and not in the least, Andy. 
    Ringo has always been everyone's favourite fab-fourster. There was rhe John/Paul dichotomy and the George guitar-classic-frustrations but Ringo was just a good-time guy and everyone liked him. Sure he was no Ginger Baker but that was/is the secret to his continual 'nice-guy' image. There was never any doubt about Ringo... he was there for a good time and for a long time and he knew the gods had smiled and smiled and smiled upon him and he was going to return Their pleasure in spades!

    Although (interestingly enough) he was actually the first of them to "leave" the group...for a little while anyway.

  • #192

    Ahhh.. "the first" Andy?
    The... first, eh.
    Is that a cryptic refernce to the bare-footed Paul on Let It Be's Zebra-crossing photo?
    Do you know something we don't?
    Speak! Damn your sweet mauve lips: Speak!
    Vee haff vayz off making ... bad Peter Sellers impersonations.
     
    I think I should go to bed now.

    During the White Album sessions he left the proceedings due to all the rancour and turmoil (and stayed away for a couple of weeks).

  • #194

    Ahhh, the WhiteAlbum...

    (excuse me for one moment!)
