How To Kill The King, Night Watch, & The Internet
Last things first: My internet is working again.
Tonight I’m headed to see the largest grossing movie of all time in Russia (as of 2004). Yup. It’s this horror/fantasy/thriller movie that I’m sure is going to give me nightmares in my next life—if it scared the Russians—who knows how it’s going to affect me!
The movie is “Night Watch.” If you want to see a baby crawling out of someone’s eye, go HERE. Sorry to anyone that weakens at things like this. I tend to find these things hilarious.
First things almost last: My good friend and fellow poet, Adam L. Dressler, began teaching me chess last night. I retained about 10 % of my lessons from last night.
What I remember: The Queen has the ultimate power. One of the pieces moves in an “L”. The king has a cross on top of it. Actually, that might be more like 1%...
The picture at the top of this posting is Rembrandt's "Night Watch." The most famous painting in the Rijksmuseum--Amsterdam. (I got to see it last summer...)
