Speed Chess to Drum n Bass

Speed Chess and Drum n Bass!



Today I had my best time so far this year in class [actually library] time. We played speed chess and made up drum n bass music to go with it - my blond associate who shall remain nameless [cybersafety] was awesome musically and we kept it up for about 40 minutes i reckon.
Next week we should create some drum n bass sound tracks to go with our new song "Speed Chess".
Here are some images of real speed chess and real drum n bass, including NZ's own Concord Dawn! [one of my fave "bands"]
:-)
Hooray for random fun at school!

OMG I think it sounds brilliant and just to say I had the most funnest time I am so the lead singer! :)

All the boys in my class you must come and look at my blog The reason for this post was so that some of the boys in our class dont know how to use their ears so I thought maybe it was because they didnt actually know who it works so now they have no reason to not listen to Mr Woody!! If you want the rest on how your ear works!!!!

Ha Ha I was playing chess with my friend and we could hear Mr Woody singing while playing chess.

The Other Boy said...

You should sing it to house music or something like that...
BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM, BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM, BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM, BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM, BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM (Really quickly).

sometimes they call it Blitzkrieg - German for lightning war or something. (lightning as in really fast)

Umm... I think some of you should use fullstops and commas in your sentences. It makes more sense to the reader that way.

I like playing chess it is a strategic game but i don't know what the difference is beetween chess and speed chess!

Bubbles said...

well chess is boring and slow and speed chess is fast and exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

The Other Boy said...

Speed chess you have a set timer and you hit the button on top to make the other person's start timing and your's stop. If that makes any sense.

Bubbles said...

We just played that you have to go really fast and you dont think about where your going you just move the pieces around!!!! :)

gracie said...

I really enjoyed the speed chess and liked the beat of the music.

P.S. Mr Woody I think you should use the music on my flashdrive Because there are all types of music for different types of people.

A really good chess thing that teaches you how to play chess is 'CHESS - THE STEP-BY-STEP MANUAL' which has a Harry Potter theme and in all the issues you get 1 or 2 chess pieces from the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and a giant chess board. You can buy it from Whitcoulls and Penny's Bookstore for $10.95.

If you want a game of chess on a 9 metre square chess board with 2foot high pieces then go to Hamilton Gardens (aproximate measures).

BFN, Drumbledoor.

I watched and it definately got crazy and there was a crowd and I was one of the first ones so I had a good view.

P.S: I have a post on cyber safety on my blog!
