Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I trust you all had a great 2013 and Christmas season!

It's been a wild ride for this writer all year. Exciting work challenges, home improvements, smoking meat, and anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r glorious NFL season.

I played fantasy football for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time last year in my work league, losing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 championship final. This year I got to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 work league playoffs, but was upset because Calvin Johnson stank up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 joint against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Ravens. I made two title rounds in 2 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 3 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r leagues I played in and it's yet to be decided. Not to bad!

On things economic, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was some good stuff (better jobs numbers sort of, Europe got quiet, credit expanded, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market took off), and some bad stuff (credit expanded in bad things (cars, student loans), market took off masking risk, Paul Krugman is still considered smart!). Long time readers know it's always my advice to stick conservative and aim for ~ 10% a year returns. If you did not step on a landmine this year, and it would have been hard to, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n you probably made 2-4 years worth of returns this past year. It's ok to bank it and play light next year. I am doing just that.

For Christmas cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wife got me a video called "Black Air: The Buick Gran National Documentary" and this of course has me even more crazed over muscle cars than normal.

I am always checking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 awesome site RK Motors in Charlotte and it's getting harder and harder not to pull cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trigger on a vintage Plymouth GTX or a 1955 Chevy. Or maybe a 1987 GNX? Who knows but it's about time to trade in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Infiniti and I could get crazy!

All my best for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new year!

Have a good night.

Airforce Lt. Col. Andrew Tanner

This classic film was on this weekend and I always love cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OG-riginal "Red Dawn" from 1984.

So What Happened?

Ok so this I had to share.

Kola Superdeep Borehole
I have mentioned this before, but as a reminder via Wiki:
The Kola Superdeep Borehole is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 result of a scientific drilling project of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Soviet Union on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Kola Peninsula. The project attempted to drill as deep as possible into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Earth's crust. Drilling began on 24 May 1970 using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Uralmash-4E, and later cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Uralmash-15000 series drilling rig. A number of boreholes were drilled by branching from a central hole. The deepest, SG-3, reached 12,262 metres (40,230 ft) (2.21 leagues) in 1989, and is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deepest hole ever drilled, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deepest artificial point on Earth.
So what happened?

Well I leave you with two images.

One, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 place looks like it was destroyed (click for larger view):

Yeah, many old USSR sites look bad. The collapse and all that. I get it.

But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n why was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 borehole WELDED SHUT and left INTACT all this time? (click for larger view):
I dunno, but I bet it's interesting!

Have a good night.

The Onion: "Financial Sector Thinks It’s About Ready To Ruin World Again"

Oh this is classic:

Via The Onion:
Financial Sector Thinks It’s About Ready To Ruin World Again

Read it all, but some funny (true?) snippets:
-“People are beginning to feel at ease spending money and investing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir futures again,” Blankfein continued. “That’s cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 perfect time to step in and do what we do best: rip cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 heart right out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world’s economy.”

** See this commercial as back up:


-“On second thought, maybe we’ll wipe out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 housing market again too, just for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hell of it,” Schnall quickly added. “Might as well, right?”

**The current accepted idea of a housing recovery is going to be so hilarious in a year or so I chuckle everyday.

-“Now that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 public’s efforts to curtail questionable Wall Street trading practices have all but ceased, it’s time for us to bring cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world to its knees again,” said AIG CEO Robert Benmosche. “There are still plenty of opaque financial derivatives, high-frequency trading operations, and off-balance sheet transactions out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, all with virtually no federal regulation. Trust me, we can definitely work with that. And if anything, we can always just lobby for furcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r concessions and deregulation in Washington—which, by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, is so, so easy to do—and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n we can cause as much damage as we want.”

**No worries bulls, Janet Yellen is set to unleash QE Infinity TIMES Infinity come January but wowza, it's quite a way until cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n! Anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r commercial to help with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 visual:


-"And while we’re at it, we’ll make sure we once again come away from this whole thing scot-free and far wealthier.”

**It's true. What really drove me away from things market and trading was that every trader/investor/money manager is responsible for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market works. To turn a blind eye in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 awe of an uptrend is dishonest and shows where your real drive is from.

Have a good night.

Wall Street Babies Get Pampers Changed by Bernanke's Au Pair Hilsenrath

In case you were confused about things for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 STUNNING 4% or so drop in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 indices and rate sensitive items getting clobbered this handy diagram should clear things up.

1.) OMFG!!!! The Fed may taper/slow/stop extra bond buying:

2.) WE ARE SAVED!!!!:

As you were.


Note: The recent drop extends my time estimate until we get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, but I believe when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 S&P 500 gets to 1800 cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re will be a significant opportunity.

Have a good night.

ATTENTION: Wall Street is Hiring Bagholders. Step Up!

How do you know you are Bearish and showing cognitive bias? How many Zero Hedge articles you reference in a work. Bullish? Anything by Joe Weisenthal on Business Insider.

Anyways, If I hear people "missed out" on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 145% rally from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lows I will scream. Only Wall Street types and morons think some dude with a job reacts in minutes or hours to market gyrations.

My chart (click for larger view):
We know, PE expansion due to low rates, etc.

The taunting, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 smug dismissive attitude has to stop. No wonder normal folks do not do anything but steady invest and not watch. Main Street has seen enough of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 baloney. Keep selling this uptrend (its not a 'rally' morons going on 4 years; if of course you missed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 murder holes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n bought cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom which is easy) and no one is buying. Wall Street needs a bagholder that is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m (think 2000-2001; did YOU get bailed out? No? Too bad...) so buy in if you want.

Good luck.

I Will Be Saving This

Puzzling that faced with overwhelming evidence that former Fed head Alan Greenspan is a blacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ring idiot that blew 2 bubbles and caused massive damage, people now look to Ben Bernanke as some kind of hero:
I will be saving this one.

Guilty Pleasures: "The Undertaker"

Ok, so I used to LOVE cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WWE (formally cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WWF) and most especially cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 performer known as "The Undertaker". Fake? Yup. Silly? Maybe. AWESOME? Of course.

Enjoy this entrance at SummerSlam in 1994:

That just rocks!!!!!!!!!!

Lighters Up; Party Time

All is well and getting even better.

Because I am a "perma bear" or I don't philosophically empathize that unlimited handouts/bailouts/support for losers and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir failed efforts constitute real accomplishment, I am an idiot. I have nothing to add. All anything is about, is making returns and money. I guess I missed that class. Too much fishing can be blamed as usual.

Stocks, bonds, real estate, anything but gold and silver is going to unknown highs and you have to buy. Buy now. In a thousand years of history no one but Benjamin Bernanke has figured out how to make a nirvana of free money with no consequence rain prosperity upon cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 masses. I tip my hat. Well done sir, well done.

I often think of this Kevin Depew Miyanville article
Five Things You Need to Know: Deflation is Here, What Next?

It's all become untecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365red. Emotion, momentum, and how far one can push it.

I think we see S&P 500 at 1800 in 6 months.

Is 1800 on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SPY overvalued? How can I know? There is no way to gauge it.

The restraints are off.

Have a good night.

It's Over

My family and me are thankfully fully removed from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 happenings in Boston over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last 5 days. Many I know and care about have not been.

I think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is so much right now that is confusing and hard but let's all be thankful it's over.

All my prayers and best for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boston/Cambridge area tonight.

Circular Logic and Bad Candles. A Place for Economic Disconnect?

A moment of your time if you please.

I scan a few sites, read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 news, and see a few charts in a given week. What I have been seeing since QE unlimited went online has blown my mind and it's high time everyone admits something.

NO ONE KNOWS WTF IS GOING ON.

Now I don't want to name names and provide links but here is what I see from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 distance view:


So just that I get it:
A. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new year all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big money and even Mom and Pop were coming into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market full bore. Fuck bonds, gold, bitcoin, toilet paper, it was all stocks all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time. All that sideline money coming in and high rollers like Dalio, I mean, what's not to like?

B. Now this rally is so hated by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 under-invested (ok one link) that missed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "rally" (when is an uptrend not a rally BTW?) that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y play contrarian and say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are bearish while cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y really want in.

C. Everyone knows cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sentiment survey is contrarian, so what to make of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 highest bearish reading since 2009 (Remember? The world was ending and some shit) as stocks rocket higher?

As a scientist looking at this, you cannot have A and B togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. If you are saying both you were wrong at one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 points. They are circular in logic and disingenuous.

Point C is a new era idea, that markets no longer reflect much of anything save positioning.

I was always more of a technical guy but scanning a few charts just shows me its about junk at this point. Check this (click for larger view):
Candle folks would call that a bearish engulfing on heavy volume (volume don't matter, I know) and it's negated almost immediately. I have about 40 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se highlighted over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last 2 months across many things. technicals are fucked now. Low volume paints are candle killers. Don't bocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r.

And at last, it's all about crushing shorts. Which if you have any idea about how large money manages risk is a silly notion. Maybe computer jockeys put cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir full account short a stock cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n get wiped out, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir $2000 is unlikely to make a career for anyone on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rside. Not everyone that is uneasy or skeptical of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 disconnect between cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 economy and equities is "fighting" cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 uptrend. You are on drugs if anyone is shorting this stuff.

In summation, I have no clue whats going on. Looking around, no one else does. What I will not accept is bull shit circular arguments. Maybe QE unlimited on steroids from Japan and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US Fed will make us all rich. Why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y waited until now and not 50 years earlier is beyond me though. Anyone have an answer to that? Thought not, except maybe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Krugmonster.

It's ok if you don't know. Just say so. I have no idea.

On a more philosophical note, all this effort to force people into risk and markets by Japan and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US seems dangerous. I don't expect anyone that makes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir living by it to speak up but its rotten and cruel.

Have a good night.

Some funny Stuff

Hey all!!!

Hope you are all well.

Some funny tidbits tonight.

-Japan
-Calculated Risk so bullish on housing (he should know better)
-Same old stuff; buy everything now due to "great rotation" bla bla bla and bla

To be honest I am getting set up to do some serious fishing this Spring/Summer. Even if I had stayed writing on things finance, I can't be any more clear on how sentiment and herd moves have taken over things. The market is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 economy and vice versa. Bunch of cowboys trying to rip each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r off. At least in a year or so we get a final answer on Keynesian bull shit from Japan. Oh, and please keep selling your gold and silver. Been waiting for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hot money to leave for over 5 years. Exit already.

My submission, for funniest video EVER is this. NOTE: Don't play if you are easily offended (I'm serious):


Have a good night.

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams"

Brilliant clip from a way under seen film "Equillibrium":


Very beautiful.

I mentioned to a friend of mine no one would be short going into Sunday night and I was right.

As away as I have been it's clear most if not all of my heroes are falling into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trap of making money versus doing whats right. Glad, so glad I have walked away.

If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 S&P 500 was at 3000 but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were burning bodies for fuel, money types would laud cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 efficiency and look at margins for companies.

All this with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 backstop of a Federal Reserve as a savior. Be honest, it's nothing you are doing, just a helping hand that you all accept. Index funds are keeping pace or better. No one needs a stock guy in a bull market.

I could never on this blog get people in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wider sphere to get past returns and money. Too bad. I thought doing whats right and integrity were paramount.

Wow. Just wow.

Friday Night Entertainment Light

A little throw back to Friday Night Entertainment. Enjoy.

The 25 Greatest Unscripted Scenes in Films
Saw this one this week, 25 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best unscripted scenes in movie history. As cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 description says, please leave cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 captions ON to see some extra info. My favorites are #19 (Aliens "Game OVER"), #17 (The Usual Suspects lineup), #12 (Jaws "Your gonna need a bigger boat"), and #6 (Blade Runner "tears in rain"):

Nice collection.

69 'sacks' or 69 'sex'? You Decide
You have to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 call but watch this news clip and decide. I say '69 sex':

Yup.

Magnetic Silly Putty
I bought two of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se magnetic silly putty toys, one for me and one for my wife. They are AWESOME!!!!! Highly recommended desk toy or just to help you puzzle out magnetic field lines and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r physics stuff:
You can buy some at Simply Clever Toys.

Daniel H. Wilson Scores Again
A while back I reviewed Daniel H. Wilson's seminal novel "Robopocalypse" and gave it my highest recommendation:
I was reminded of his work by two things. One was this picture which shows how low cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 robots will go, attacking our own kittens for crying out loud:
And second I read his new book this week, "AMPED":

And came away both horrified and amazed. Get this book as well.

Have a good night.

When Classics Get Reborn

Happy Valentine's Day!

I survived cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deluge of snow here in Massachusetts intact, not even a need for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 generator. A snow blower would have been nice, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 plow guy did cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best he could.

A quick word to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New England Patriots; PAY Talib, GET Ed Reed. Let Welker walk and maybe get a cheaper kicker. That is all.

When Classics Get Reborn
I am coming into my 37th birthday window. Last year you may recall I was not happy about year 36, but here I am and all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 better going forward. Two weeks cigarette free, and to be honest it feels good. Except for this freaking headache in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 center of my head at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of my nose. Any advice appreciated.

As such, I love older music. Sometimes an older song eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r gets re-done or gets imprinted on you in anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r way. I have two examples to show you.

First up, Del Shannon's immortal "Runaway". It stands alone as an all time classic, just take a listen:

Most excellent.

Now cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time I heard this song, it was a later version Del recorded for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 great TV show "Crime Story" starring Dennis Farina (yes, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Xfinity guy). A bit more electric, some piano, and lyrics aimed at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 show. I like this version better than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 original:

And an old classic is reborn. Well, it was back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n anyway.

I have to say, I had never heard of Thurston Harris. Thurston Howell III, yes, but not Harris! The first time I heard cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 song "Little Bitty Pretty One" was in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film "Christine" at a particular revenge scene:

Nice.

The OG-riginal:

Old school great. And by John Carpenter's film, a classic had new life.

Who can forget Bob Dylan's song "All Along cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Watchtower"? Well, everyone after Jimi Hendrix made it his own:

Yuppers.

Recently (kind of) The Mighty Mighty Bosstones forever took "Detroit Rock City" from KISS in my eyes:

That works.

What comes to mind for you? Better new versions or better old versions?

Have a good night.

On The Fallacy of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Greater Good" and a Great Song

Hey all.

Don't mention cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Patriots. An ugly show last week that left me scratching my head. I don't think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Pats could have beaten San Francisco anyway, but still, a no show in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second half last week. That window is getting so small now for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.

I wanted to take a second to say something, something without spelling it all out for you. I think anyone that has read me over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 years will understand, ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs not so. Here goes.

On The Fallacy of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Greater Good" 
So cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 financial "crisis" is over.

My friend Josh Brown has a great piece up this week, aptly titled "The Word is Out, Just So You Know" and it's solid and spot on. I don't know for myself if this is anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r 2003-2007 never ending run up or anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r fake out. Honestly, I don't care.

No matter what happened, things were going to be ok after a bit. That's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 truth.

It's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fallacy of "The Greater Good" that kills me. Doing wrong to get to a right. I mean, do you all teach your kids that? All I hear is how everyone wants to provide a future for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir kids, bla bla and all that. You teach cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to cut corners, cheat, lie, and steal to get to an endpoint? The glory of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 greater good gets hollow.

I don't want to spend a bunch of time on this.

How you get somewhere is just as, and maybe more so, important than getting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. My problem with all this, and it's a big problem, is that it was all a fucking handout. The Fed, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Treasury, two Presidents gave cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest handout to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst criminal rip off in America history. It does not sit well. But hey, money is getting made right?

Ever sit by your Dad and know he is a vegetable after a massive heart attack? The most powerful railroad man you have ever seen? The fuck do a few dollars mean cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n? Know your sister is a full blown Bi-Polar nut case and you can never see her again? See your mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r crumble through all this, and only your effort and integrity carries her through?

You stand. You hold up.

But no one that is a cheat can stand, and some that need handouts can never walk.

I don't sell stuff. I don't provide services. Whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world ended in 2009 or we are now on track for a S&P 500 run to 2500 I don't have a real vested interest.

There is no honor, and no integrity anymore. You may think a few bucks make things 'right' but it only blunts cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 feeling to do what's right. Any student of history knows what happens when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 core of a society gets eroded. If you can turn your head for criminals to rob you, so your 401k comes back, you will turn your head for most anything. That's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 truth.

So turn your head.

Great Song
I forgot about this song, but I do love it. The fiddle gets played almost to a high note, yet comes back down and so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 song seems sad. Check out The Waterboys with "Fisherman's Blues":


Have a good night.

Amazing Picture

Hey all! Football playoffs so far have been somewhat not competitive. I think next weeks divisional round will be quite different indeed. Expect some unbelievably hard fought, tight games. GO PATRIOTS!

Amazing Picture
Ran across this picture from 1942 by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 famous Ansel Adams and thought I would place it here. Titled "The Tetons and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Snake River" (click for larger view or go here):
Have a good night.

Back when I was a kid I did not want to be President, an Air Force Pilot, nor one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rich and famous. I wanted to pilot cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 robot "Grendizer":
And yes, I wanted to be Orion Quest:
