Make sure you scroll down and check out the fishing pictures from today that I posted. What a great time. No work and no things economic was so relaxing, except when the fish were biting!
There was plenty of stuff out there, much of it very important, but I cannot pretend I am even into it this evening. Here are some stops you should make:
-Housing Doom picked up a Businessweek article that showed agency paper (FNM, FRE) trading at 106 cents on the dollar, that's right, 6 cents over full value! No idea what this means and too tired to bother.
-FED to go QE 2.0 to the tune of 5 Trillion? Why not, the first attempt has worked so well I can only imagine how great the second will go. Surely this means gold will collapse.
-It is always something from out of the blue that starts a big panic, so here is Romania for you.
-Did budget director Orszag quit because he works for idiots? Probably. Seems a recurring theme as of late.
-Well, we have been told all this would happen, but did you bother to read?
-Don't click if you do not want to get depressed, but here is Alabama waves rolling in with additives.
Friday Night Bonanza
I came across a ton of cool stuff tonight so this is going to be fun!
Best of YouTube
How about a spider crab molting its shell in time lapse? COOL!
Why a lady is playing the RockBand game while naked in front of her kids I have no idea but its worth a look.
Tuesday and Wednesday night I read the book "The Last Great Fight" by Joe Layden which recounts the story around the Mike Tyson vs. Buster Douglas fight back in 1990. The book was amazing and I really can recommend it. It brought back memories; I watched that fight live and was in total shock. Here is the last 3 rounds with the 8th round knockout, I mean knockdown by Tyson and then the brutal end in the 10th:
The intro to John Carpenter's "Christine". Gives me the chills:
We need a little music to really get this weekend going and so here it is.....
Watchtower asked about the April Wine song "I Like to Rock", which I had never heard. The song was so great I can allow the crap at the end to slide:
That was a great one, thanks Watchtower!
Lurker would like a little "Blinded by the Light" from Manfred Mann and I had not heard this one in a bit so here it is:
Gawains was looking for some KISS and Firehouse, but that got me in mind of my favorite KISS clip, a live version of "I Was Made for Loving You":
What a great live version! Plus plenty of hot ladies in the audience, not that I was looking, I am married and all.
Ok, maybe a little old school heavy rock overload so far. How can we change it up?
Maybe slow it down with Bon Jovi and "Always"?:
Your welcome ladies!
This song can be complex to play, and my Dad played a nasty good one on 12 string guitar that was amazing. I wish he had played electric! Anyways, here is Dolly Parton with "Jolene":
Two more then I have to go, I was paddling up a river all day, but I did have a paddle, obviously!
How about a little "Rocky Top" for Tennessee:
Also very good on a 12 string!
Last call! Have a great weekend! Now what to close the show with????...
Ok, I had this one over a year ago (9/26/08) but it really is a great tune and so I send you off for the night with Adrenalin and "Road of the Gypsy":
"You know it don't come easy.." You said it brother!
Have a good night.
