blue and white; blue because it's cool and blueberries and the sky and water; white because of all the colors and purity and light/good vs darkness/evil; pink too because of how the pink rose smells,
among other things
what do you prefer, lakes or rivers and why?
..Rivers; I feel like I can follow along them better. :D Although it was quite nice to go fishing out on a boat with my granddad. I wasn't too excited by it, but it was still out of the ordinary for
me and an isolated thinking viewpoint (middle of a lake). I suppose it gets deeper than that when you age, but overall I feel like following rivers.
Reminds me of Disney's Pocahontas somewhat.
What's ... your favorite dish of ice cream :D, if there is one?
I prefer rivers too, tho I also have good memories of (pike) fishing with my grandpa.
I don't eat ice cream anymore (no dairy at all). When I did, my favorite was sweet cream (no flavor otherwise); I also liked strawberry, french vanilla, rainbow sherbet, mint chip, and a few others.
favorite classical song? (mine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aXwTPQQ1_U
Rainbow sherbet XD I'd always keep bugging my mom to buy a $5 gallon bucket of the stuff so I could pig out in a tub (heh no), although yeah, honestly I don't know my favorites too well, but the ones
you listed are at the top for me anyway XD.
The same kind of goes with music I'm afraid...it's pressing for me to feel out enough pride over a favorite I guess, in most but, not all cases. Classical music is influential by some good sciences,
though most of when I was raised to it in my life was around certain friends...rather than my parents. So, I don't really know how to answer.
I can safely say I like almost all of the classical music I hear while watching movies or anime. That Bolero one you linked, in fact, in the beginning had a strange resemblance to something used
during Dragonball Kai XD, surprising as it may seem.
Not generally a big deal (for what I do it is), but most experienced/favorite music player utility?
If I had to pick a favorite, I'd say it's half-classical, half-digitalized as video game music (but used in a game made from 1094 with some orchestral or old stuff).
So it's still not a very good answer to your question.
But it inspired me to have a different view of video game music altogether, even though it was as close to classical music as any game music I had ever listened to up to that point had gotten.
oh, i forgot about fur elise (and beethoven's 9th - esp the last 2 minutes or so); probably some others too (then again, the process is self-selecting)
music player utility? if i'm understanding your question correctly, then mostly youtube :D otherwise, vlc
can't think of another good question right now; somebody else ask something
I was gonna say, I suppose YouTube should count, but I see I didn't really need to clarify that XD. Man YouTube's not automated and just sucks up RAM and CPU using my browser though, so I generally
use Winamp to loop audio tracks. Honestly, never tried VLC before...it's what my mom keeps using I think.
What's the fastest game (in measure of moves played) you've ever won in a tournament?
hmm, good question and i don't remember. it would have to be a game where somebody made a silly early blunder and resigned - ie. forgettable. the earliest mate was probably something in a
Scandinavian, tho I don't remember that either. I remember my earliest loss in a tournament. it was a russian woman, also in the Scandinavian :D. I don't remember the exact moves either tho.
My most memorable games are ones that were more of a struggle - games that involved sacrifice/persevere. like the class championships in st. louis - this one cunt kept tapping his fucking pencil
nearly driving me crazy; it's 40 in 2, rest of the game in 1 so each side gets 3 hours and i was in time trouble before move 40 (ie. once i got there i was fine). but somehow i lost my queen on the
way to make time control, but still managed to beat the clock and win the game. it was probably my most satisfying victory.
there was another time when i played a really fun side of the french as white against the editor of the state chess magazine; i tried to sacrifice my knight 4 times in creative and effective ways;
eventually he left the board for like 30 minutes, then came back and resigned. that game did not make the magazine :D
my last most memorable game was after i had quit playing seriously; i was in christchurch new zealand playing on the large board in the city center (like the ones where you have to pick up the pieces
and move them). anyway, i was playing against my indonesian friend with the lazy eye, who I think I had only beaten once before out of many games on that board. the game before that I had played
this dude from australia; we were going to bet 20$ on the game but instead i said if i won we'd smoke that joint that he had (if he won i'd give him 20$). anyway i won and got really high (hadn't
smoked in months). the next game indonesia and i played; it was like fucking magical; it was an open sicilian but a non-conventional variation and it seemed like the moves just selected themselves;
ie. i didn't think or calculate; i just played what was revealed to me. i ended up sacrificing my queen and a knight and won.
hmm, on a related note, what are your favorite herbs and why? (mine are mint, marijuana, verbena, dill, thyme, etc.)
HAHAHAAAA!! Got high this, got high that, smoked this game, smoked that game...man you are full of lessons from these stories XD, I do remember months ago when you mentioned the twig who kept tapping
his pencil for some reason though. I'm sure he'd have found a better use for it if you brought the right beans with ya to stink up the table. no pencil up his nose from the fumes = passes out and
falls over onto his king
Man do I love playing those sorts of romantic games though where it's pure intuitive, the Sicilian you mentioned. Didn't get a chance like that though, just a checkmate in 9 moves against this kid in
my first RBO who was apparently over anxious and tensed up over me being bigger than him, although I do still remember the moves by heart.
Favorite herbs !!
well I do like mint, I like ginseng too from that unusual kind of Mountain Dew I did like, rumored to help with chess too according to an international master, and I'm not too sure what the
of a herb is, but I like a few spices as well. [I'll also grind in some crack, meth, cocaine, heroin, all that jazz..] Oh yeah and "why"...guess I mostly covered that already but, it's all a matter
of feeling and confidence, not necessarily the taste, but what I know about it...a luck charm kind of thing
So...here's one out of curiosity, what's the most amount of dough you've won from a tournament (lol you know, cash)?
i won over $700 in the king's island open in cincinnati; but it's probably also the most i spent on a tournament, plus i had to pay taxes on it as well (got sent a 1099 and everything).
what's your favorite number/s/?
