If you haven't read it, "Bobby Fischer goes to War" is a really enjoyable book about the 1972 World Chess Championship.

We weren't the fastest. But that wasn't our point of differentiation.

They used to conduct the removal one piece at a time, often via the post.

If we did that we would have called ourselves Post Modern Removals.

"How would you like us to commence your removal, sir? Queen's gambit? Nimzo-Indian? Or perhaps the Ruy Lopez?"

All my topies are MTM, off the rack topies just don't cut it for me.

 

Maybe I'm just outspoken tho.

True story.
Theres a portable dog wash business I see around - Dirty Dogs - Done Dirt Cheap. One of the best was a bloke I saw up the street around 6 months ago - a plumber - His name was Ricky ...Surname.... - underneath his name, in italics, on the van, was "Don't lose that number - its the only one to call" - I congratulated him - he said the sad thing was hardly anyone gets it. We commiserated. A friend of mine owns the second hand book shop "Merchant of Fairness". Another mates band - ageing musos - "The Recliner Rockers" I also remember a good cabaret /cover band "Glen Waverly & The Mentones"

Used to be a catering company back in the 80's-90's I think that did catering for heavy metal bands on tour like motorhead etc. The company was called "shit food for cunts" which I thought was just the ballsiest and funniest name for a company ever.

Interesting anecdote in the Searching for Sugar Man documentary on SBS last night about Rodriguez in his younger days wearing a three piece suit as a form of social commentary when doing demolition labouring.

Gradi.

 

IMO DOC is just as good, if not, better than 400 Gradi.
