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.

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.

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

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.

White Brother’s first move arrived.
The card was lovely. Key West. We have some shared memories of this place. The Half Shell Raw Bar. Things he remembers more than me. Pooping in a bucket. Obnoxious endangered species. And now,the inaugural chess by mail move,sent fromthe smallest post office in America.
Hypermodern. Now, I sort of predicted this. Not quite. But something of hypermodern flavor. If it were me trying this sort of approach, I would have only advanced one rank with the pawn. I worry his bishop will have limited utility. But deep inside, I worry more that it will have just the utility intended.
I immediately ran through a few responses. A return in kind, or a classical declaration of noble purpose. You know me, tumblfriends. Noble.

Bitch is trippin’

I will admit, I chose my first move based on a lesson our Opa (grandfather for you non Germanic types) taught me. I used to be baller at chess and beat his friends a bunch, but then I stopped playing promptly. I am sort of the prodigal chess player. I haven’t played a game in 6 years minimum.

But Black Brother must me out his dang mind if he thinks I am going beyond that. Planning? Strategy? That is game 2 status. I roll game 1 different. I go in cold turkey. I am free balling this chess game like a frat kid on laundry day. Like an unmanned canoe floating down the river. Majestic and shit.

This might back fire. But what is a chess game without a little danger.
