Carnival the 8th is up!

Thanks to Takchess, who has spared us the brown acid (see incredible footage below, go to 9:26) and given us something to smile about in the eighth chess carnival!

If interested in hosting a future carnival, email me at bluedevil dot knight at yahoo.

Don't take the brown acid!!!

And one of the greatest performances...

Indeed a great performance. If you want to research something funny, see if you can find out what happened to Richie Havens' teeth...

I love these videos, I remember visiting the 6th chess carnival a while back - thanks for the great performance.

I am disgusted at my alma mater!

Yeah I graduated from the University of Miami. I am very proud of my music degree from that school. It is one of the best jazz departments in the country. (it really is a great University)

But I am sick and tired of the football team embarrassing me. The only time UM makes the news is when the football team/coaches, do something stupid.

I am venting because I need to, but I think the NCAA should give Miami the football "death penalty." And take away the Championship they won early in the 2000's.

Sorry to vent!

An embarrassed and humiliated Miami alumnus!

Yes, that sucks. I feel bad for Vince Wilfork, though. He's the man.

Yeah that is the thing. It is not like the players didn't know they were violating some rules but they are just college kids. I was once one myself!

But when the "adults" like the president of the University and Coaches are either turning their heads and looking the other way or taking money from the same people that sends a completely hypocritical message to the athletes!

I think the President of Miami should resign her position...NOW.

And to top it off I am in a really sucky run of chess playing! It as if I've never even looked at a tactic before in my life!! :)

It is really bad, I agree. Almost as bad as not having a volunteer to host the next carnival.

I feel privileged to have seen Richie Havens live ( although not at Woodstock).

He was incredibly loud.

He broke strings regularly, but the roadies were prepared, bringing on the next guitar almost instantly!

He also played so long, that I missed the last bus ( this was student days ) and I had a long walk home, my ears ringing.
