GO SPOTTING: A Thousand Plateaus

Monday June 21, 2010

”In chapter 12 of their book A Thousand Plateaus- Capitalism and Schizophrenia,” Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari use go in opposition to chess as a model to begin describing their concept of ‘nomadology’  (pp.352-53),” writes Marc Willhite. “Not the lightest reading to be sure, but it certainly gave me a new appreciation for the qualities that make go the confounding and fascinating game that it is.”

GO SPOTTING: ‘The Warlords’

Sunday May 23, 2010

“Recently I went to see the movie ‘The Warlords’ at a local arts movie house,” writes Les Lanphear III in San Diego, CA. “It was shot in China and Hong Kong in 2007. Of course there are battles and martial arts and a love triangle. Toward the end two of the Emperors’ officials are talking while playing go. They play a few moves but too quickly for me to get a layout of the position. The movie is set in the 1860s during the Taiping Rebellion.”

Hal Small adds that the 2006 French novel “presents an overview and a very accurate description of the nature of our beloved game.  It’s also a drop-dead funny book with scathing social commentary.”
