My favorite parlor game is to guess the art from the title of your beat and the thumbnail in your Bandcamp release notice prior to the release of your newsletter. I always get it wrong--except today! I love this and now I wonder what makes something a worthwhile pursuit. How much does our skill at something matter in proportion to the amount of time we chose to devote to it.

I would like you to add a rap of the last moves of a famous match.

Go to Lucerne. Like other cities, it has giant chessboards and pieces near the bridge where people enter into a game. (Or it did, 20 years ago!)

I too love chess. Haven’t played in forever though. But loved the beat and reading about your history with chess.

I learned that I stink at chess when my (then) 10 year old started destroying me in matches. Still love playing though.

I stink at chess, do appreciate it, though. Loved Queen's Gambit, albeit not a real chess player.
