The Urban brothers play a rousing game of Chess via the United States Parcel Service.

 

CONNECTICUT HAS THE MOST AMAZING ARCHITECTURE SO STOP WASTING AL YOUR MONEY TRAVELLING TO EUROPE.

PAWN E2 TO E3.

I will grant that I am amazed that there is a postcard of theBaldwin Bridge. It caries Interstate 95 and US Route 1, with an average daily traffic of 85,000 vehicles. Did you know that?

Less confidence this time. I am already regretting, sort of, the move I sent off yesterday. Consider a poor response a kindness though; Black Brother has 12 hour shifts dealing with this storm, and could use a perk.

So i got an Owl in the mail today, sort of like a bizarro world Harry Potter thing going on here. I was happy to have it. I came home to find the postcard on my computer desk with a post-it from my girlfriend that said “the owls are not what they seem” on it. Twin Peaks found its way into this business too. Such a busy little post.
It seems my brother is taking the “always be on the offense” approach, which is unfortunate because it is a good approach. I am making little (read zero) progress on my own offensive end, and am sort of just trying to force a situation where the tides turn. But you all knew that, because that is pretty much what Chess is. Harry Potter, Twin Peaks, and role reversals. Perfect considering this weekend is NY Comicon.

White bro advanced his queen’s pawn a tepid single square. Cautious. Fearful. The bishop is staring down a diagonal which is empty and useless. He is thrashing about helplessly in an ocean of his own tears. His impatience is a product of his only hope: a swift death, and a favorable reincarnation.

Brotimes sent me a really confusing postcard covered in swirls and spiders drawn by some local artist that contained and even more confusing move.
Damn it chess is really effing hard. See I usually win games by being spontaneous and erratic. I can’t do that with post cards. This ain’t shaping up to be my specialty.
I think I know how I am going to respond to this here move… but god help me if I know whether or not it’s a good move.
Also, my bad about the wait. I really am a horrible person.

So black bro is back from vacation, (honestly, a while a go. I am just lazy) and the first piece has been taken. The most obvious attempt to lure me into getting his queen safely onto my side I have ever seen. Honestly, bro. Weak. Way to be like that. I got the appropriate retaliation. Don’t you worry.
Oh yeah. And that postcard he gave me is a statue of a boy blowin’ a goat. No dizzle.

Alright, we are back in this. Some updates were missed because we met in person, though we had to keep the pace nice and relaxed. Aside from some initial confusion as to orientation, we are proceeding without blunders, and that is important.

Today’s photo is also not a postcard. It comes to you from the prison in the castle of Ferrara, in which the duke murdered his son and his second wife for having an affair with each other. They were both 20. Shit was cold. Let me tell you what else is cold - the hurt I am about to lay down on White Brother. The next move will be delivered by hand, but on a proper post card I acquired in Italy. It will be a happy birthday.

So since I can’t send Black Brother a postcard overseas, I am substituting with a photo of my girlfriend and I at a Christmas Party. Our friend found those glasses in a second hand store, and they had such a hardcore prescription having them on for a matter of moments made the Eggnog work double time.

So my retaliation is in fact, out of necessity, a defense. Any other move and I would have pretty much lost the game next turn. Things just look downright horrible for me right now. I wish I could blame this whole game on eggnog as well. Hopefully I can turn this all around. It would be a comeback story that would be able to sit up there with Rocky 2 and the 2008 Olympics Redeem team. Happy travels, bro.

Alright. So Black Brother is in Europe right now, Italy specifically, so the postcarding has ceased for a little while. In lieu of this I am posting a photo he took, so just deal with that.

So my immediate reaction was “oh snaps, the queen. I really wish I didn’t have my board sideways when I started playing this game.” And boom, here I am on the defensive. I know he made this move before he even left, but knowing he is currently leisuring it up right now with this on his mind makes me even more uncomfortable.

Good catch. Wonderful how that completely fucks up and mirrors my desired opening move. Whatever. I will take this in stride.
Chess is hard.

I got my first postcard. Hooray! It is a beautiful stained glass fish. I do quite enjoy a bit of classy artwork. It is quite topical considering I sent him something from the Florida Keys.
Black Bro advanced the queens pawn. This is immediate cause for concern because of… reasons. I can’t tell him how much i know, because of mind games and such. But sincerely I am displeased with being forced to make defensive gestures so early. I wasn’t kidding when I said I was losing it. Maybe by game 3 I will be a bit smarter. Or… was I baiting him? Who knows…
It took a while for this postcard to get here. I am hoping maybe we can blame it on that stretch of 95 degree weather we had slowing people down. If not this game might be played well into 2013.
