In the End, There Can be Only Friday

Now that was a long week! Busy at work, saved my roof from any more damage, and only 3 inches of snow! I call it a win. A few ideas and then on with the show for some fun.

Egypt in Motion
I have stayed away from the Egypt news for the most part because I do not believe the hype that this is all about "freedom" or an uprising against a poor government. The situation is dangerous. I know, you think of course I think that, I am a gloomer. Consider that the revolt was a mess and if a government for the people comes to power just what will that look like? An angry poor populace with an axe to grind in charge of the Suez Canal. Nice. I don't think that will happen, I am sure we can buy off whomever takes power, but this could go in a direction very different than what people think. Fast.

Blog Roll Changes
A few changes at the left.

I updated Kid Dynamites new (and great looking BTW) site as he has joined forces with the STockTwits network of killer writers. Another StockTwitter (is that right?) that I really have started to devour is Downtown Trader. Writer Joey Fundora talks my language and I highly recommend stopping over there for a look. Credit Bubble Stocks is a great site and the writer cracks me up. Also, a bearish site which is a endangered animal these days. Take a look at all three.

The Week that Could Have Been
This week I did nothing in the markets. The poll about holding AMRC into earnings is running heavy to sell before then. We shall see. On Monday I screened for quite a while and did not see much that jumped out at me. One stock I was really close to buying was Clorox (CLX). Of course the stock goes apechit today! Thanks a ton! My biggest issue as a trader is that I just don't like to pull the trigger too much (keep snarky comments to self all). I have to move beyond that and play the hands I like instead of being so stationary.

Ok, you don't believe me about CLX. I understand. Here is my Freestockcharts list of stocks I was in final analysis for on 2/7/2011 so you can see I am not full of crap (click for larger view):

Using the iBankCoin PPT tool and screens of my design, I pulled 30 names, evaluated down to 7 (my secret criteria) and I was going to play two for this week, CLX and ABFS. I need to trust myself more I think.

Friday Night Entertainment
Nobody goes the extra mile for the readers like EconomicDisconnect on Friday night, nobody!

Where Apps are Headed
I spilled plenty of pixels on Apps and associated things over the last few weeks. Like on the internet, boiled down, people will just want to see naked chicks and try to get laid. It's a fact. The next generation of click to get what you want delivered (via Geekologie):
French 'Rent a Girlfriend' Website a Success
Spoil yourself, rent a girlfriend! This is the line French site Loueunepetiteamie.com uses to convince male visitors to legally rent a female friend, for an hour, an evening, a night or for a weekend.
Tired of being alone? Are you looking for a female companion who can spoil you and make you feel relaxed? Have you tried a bunch of dating sites that left you disappointed? Don't worry, help is just a few clicks away - Loue Une Petite Amie, which translates as "rent a little girlfriend" actually allows guys to rent female companions, legally! The French website assures its clients they have nothing to fear from the law, because this isn't actually prostitution, but a simple case of renting a person...which apparently isn't illegal in France.
Yes, it is the future.

Contest?
It has been a while since I ran a contest. Tonight it will be movie quote trivia! I will try my best to make them Google proof (I may slightly alter the quote as to evade search ability!) so all you cheaters cannot win that way (not fool proof, honor system folks!). Up for grabs is the winner's choice of:
-Lead off song choice for next Friday night
-Guest Post spot for a topic of your choice (this is always open BTW, but hey)
-One ounce of silver bullion (which I can never give away to a winner, they don't want it; some bubble!)
-A copy of either "Tau Zero" or "The Door into Summer"
With prizes like that, who can resist!

Rules are simple. Name the film the following quotes were in and email the answers to me at economicdisconnect at gmail. If you are first, you win! If no one gets them all, the winner is the one with the most correct answers. DO NOT post answers in the comments section.

Here they are:

1-"I don't mind getting the car"
2-"What do they do for fun around here? Play checkers or sumthin? This place is out of it"
3-"Stop sir, I beseech you. I apologise for calling your wife a bloated warthog and I bid you good day"
4-"This job would be great if it weren't for the customers"
5-"Do not put on those things on too long it feels like a knife turning in your head"
6-"Ok. Show me"
7-"....But I have built a city"
8-"People will think we're in love"
9-"Maybe you're right. Maybe I don't got it no more"
10-"I'm glad it was you"
Good luck!

Rock Blogging
Ok, that ran a bit long! On to the tuneage!

The steel resolve of my friend over at au soleil levant knows no end. We lead off Friday night with Jason Mraz and "The Remedy":

My best wishes dear! Great song.

Loyal reader, if an infrequent commenter, is C-T!. Off we go with her request, Tom Petty's "Last Dance with Mary Jane":

Tom Petty rules and girls drool.

I love this tune and it is actually a newer song! Try out Finger Eleven and "Paralyzer":

"If your body matches what your eyes can do" NICE!

Reader Gawains has a serious Black Sabbath issue, but luckily I do too! Take your medicine with "Rock N Roll Doctor":

Good pick.

For the Egypt show, here is Danzig's "Mother" for revolt:

Great tune.

Two left! "Two minutes to go, maybe two minutes left in Julio Cesar Chaves' historic unbeaten streak". Uh, no! Sorry Jim Lampley.

For Valentine's day, Bette Midler's immortal "The Rose":

That song hurts, and yes I know I have played it before!

Last call! Get those lighters up!

Here are The Ramones with "Somebody Put Something in my Drink":

That song gets me so amped up!

Have a good night.

That's Geoff Nichols on the piano, the so-called fifth Sab. He played on a couple of their albums, but I don't think he ever toured with them. I never saw or heard a piano at any of the four concerts I attended. When Black Sabbath takes the stage, they're very minimalist--guitar, bass, drums, vocals. No tape, no accompaniment, so special effects other than lights and smoke. They keep it real.

Well, there was a laser show on the Heaven and Hell Tour, but that was with Ronnie James Dio. Great concert, by the way, with Blue Oyster Cult opening--they made a movie of it, titled Black and Blue.

And there was a video screen at the Oz Fest in San Antonio, the last time I saw Sabbath. However, the montage, which the band did not pre-screen, contained some overtly political images that caused quite a stir. Bill Ward got pretty pissed off about it and issued a statement. The clips were subsequently removed from future concerts.

I actually wrote a comment on some music website at the time, and believe it or not got a phone call from a reporter for Rolling Stone magazine. How he found my name and phone number is a mystery to me, but he asked for an interview, so I talked to him. Basically, I told him, look, I don't care about politics; I just want to see the band perform. Which was essentially the same position Bill Ward took in his statement. I don't know if my interview ever made it into the print magazine, as I don't subscribe, but it was interesting.

Anyway, GYC, did you read that story about the flash crash on Apple stock? I saw it this morning on Drudge. $10 billion in market capitalization gone in four minutes. Wow.

This is what I'm talking about. These flash traders are manipulating the market. The ordinary retail investor doesn't stand a chance against these guys. I'd be very careful about which stocks to invest in if I were you, my friend.

Thanks for the shout out and letting me lead off the night! Even if I was a little late.

Wife surprised me with Ruth Chris Steakhouse reservations today for Valentines day! Saweet!

Gawains,
I do appreciate the concern but I can assure you that I know what mess I am getting into. Its like poker (which I am great at BTW); do not play with what you cannot lose. I am pretty careful, thats why I missed out on CLX.


Soleil,
Never too late! Thanks so much for stopping in.
