The Icelandic Post-crisis MiracleSee how close he is to figuring out that bad debt must be defaulted on and creditors told the games are up and not a continuous ponzi roll over forever of debt? Can Krugman make the leap????
.....The moral of the story seems to be that if you’re going to have a crisis, it’s better to have a really, really bad one. Otherwise, you’ll end up taking the advice of people who assure you that even more suffering will cure what ails you.
Second place, Nancy Pelosi has things figured out:
Pelosi: Unemployment Checks Fastest Way to Create Jobs; It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.
Wow, just wow.
Anyways, on with the show.
Friday Night Holiday Fireworks!
I wish all the readers a fun 4th of July weekend. Hopefully you will enjoy the real kick off of the summer.
I have always loved how Daguerreotype photos look. The process requires the subject to remain as still as possible due to how the film is laid down. This can get really creepy when dead people are pictured next to the living as obviously those alive will move quite a bit. The following pictures are creeping me out big time:
Odds and Ends
Now you can perform the "Truffle Shuffle" just like in the film with your new T-shirt:
"Ok so Michael Jackson didn't stop by my house to use the bathroom! But his sister did!"
What do you know about:
Operation Starfish Prime?
All you need to know about the variety of fudge on Mackinac Island. Who knew?
This sums up the situation with politics in the USA:
Bacon vs Fries. Unreal.
Quite a few tunes on tap for tonight!
Reader Watchtower notes that at the start of Billy Idol's song "Blue Highway" the guitar is used to simulate a motorcycle sound! Of course this is going to make the show:
Very nice tune.
Over at the Steel Keg cooking board I got a few requests. A Stevie Ray Vaughn vs. Jimi Hendrix showdown was suggested, but can anyone really beat Jimi besides Randy Rhoads? Here is "Voodoo Chile " by Jimi:
Nasty! Here is the Vaughn version. You decide!
Another from the Keg guys is one from Gaelic Storm. I chose "Drink the Night Away" for reasons that should be clear!:
Never heard them before, but not bad at all.
I lifted this from The Automatic Earth this week, so enjoy "My Hometown" by Springsteen. Fitting for our times it seems:
Such a hard song.
Digging deep for an Ozzy/Randy song I have not played yet brings up "Steal Away the Night":
The energy on that one is amazing.
Two more and then it is really the weekend.
A ladies touch is always needed, so try out Joan Osbourne (no relation to Ozzy!) and *"One of Us":
What a tune!
*(not meant to be religious, I just love the song so don't get all crazy)
Last call! You will need a lighter and a drink to end the show on the right note!
Ok; we need high energy rock, kicking guitar work, fast paced tempo, and some 80's hair!
Meeting all criteria is Poison's "Fallen Angel" which is my favorite Poison tune:
No joke, that is a nifty guitar solo even for a hair band!
Have a good night.
