The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

They even made a musical about it (a fantastic one at that).

I believe this is from the same musical, and is surely the better known song, no?

I like it anyway.

daffydoug probably has the entire Chess musical memorised. Smile

From the musical chess - the big 2nd act number. This is the best:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20dPYiAErU0

It is a concert performance.

The man singing is the Russian chess player. The woman is a British reporter. They have fallen for each other, but are now having difficulties :^)

The man is a wonderful singer. The woman seems as if she hadn't sung in a good long time.

To my mind, one of the best scenes ever in a musical.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Back to the original post. Internet chess is debilitatingly addictive. And it makes me rude. I hate it.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I was doing just fine...had myself weened from it for a couple years. Then my brother who lives in Indianapolis, about 75 mile from me, cajoled me into trying a couple "small" games again.

And next thing you know, here I am. Chess is the drug I need to score.

Hopeless.

I tried taping a Q to my shoulder, then weaning myself down to a R, N, B. But I never got to P, and finally I just tore the piece from my shoulder and started playing all the time. Aaaaargh! I need help.

I can help. Would you like the white or the black pieces?
