Tuesday Interlude

 

I love this ethereal video made by Sarah Wickliffe (http://www.wickpix.com/)…with a poetic appearance by Neruda. Followed it up with a Cure chaser. Because, you know, the Cure.

 

Until we meet in other worlds, traveller.

 

 

Alchemy of Chess…

“A Few Hours After This” –The Cure

A little while ago, I wrote an article for Renaissance Magazine on Human Chess Matches. (It’s a great magazine, btw! ūüôā ¬†)

Chess has been on my mind lately, metaphorically, in relation to certain things going on in my little chaotic world.

As a result, I decided to include some links for human chess match events around the world for my Travel Tuesday blog!

(What’s a human chess match?)

In¬†Marostica, Italy–September 2016:¬†http://www.wheremilan.com/events/human-chess-game-marostica-september-2016/

It might be part of the Hue Festival in Hue City, Vietnam (I tried to find the event for the next festival, but no luck. Still looks awesome, anyway!): https://www.flickr.com/photos/laresidencehue/26329563512

The Metrocon Anime Convention does a chess match every year–it’s awesome!:¬†http://www.metroconventions.com/control.cfm?ID=4041

Six Elements Theatre’s Human Chess Match:¬†http://www.sixelementscompany.org/news/

That’s it for now…the outside world is beckoning…

 

Food for…Football!

From Trainspotting:

Gail, Lizzie: What are you two talking about?
Spud, Tommy: Football! What are you talking about?
Gail, Lizzie: Shopping!

 

It’s been a very strange, dreamy week in the Chaos Realm. A fellow blogger is going to see The Cure in concert, and it’s been bringing up a lot of memories (bloody nostalgia LOL) from my experiences when I saw The Cure (hope your experience is just as magical and wonderful,¬†This Nerd’s Life).

Maybe I’ve just been exploring too many alternate dimensions while I sleep…having very intense dreams. Or something else is afoot.

So, another shortcut blog after I skipped a few.

I’ve been watching (European) football while I (pretend to) write. It’s been exciting so far! Can’t wait until it resumes on Saturday.

I stumbled across this article on the UEFA website while trying to come up with an idea for this week’s food blog.

“What do Europe’s football fans eat?”

Also:

“Football Food around the World”

If gourmet eats are your thing:

Goodbye for now. Off to wander amazing realms.
