Silver Article Linkage
I was really liking my post from last night, it finally all came together. When you write a post you really like it is a good feeling. I had an extra bonus treat in store this morning though!
My man Josh Brown who runs the great The Reformed Broker site had a rundown on why targets for the top of the "silver bubble" are silly on face as these things run a course on their own. So what was so cool? Here is the article:
Traders and True Believers Share their Metals Anti-Targets
Economic Disconnect filled in the role for "True Believer"! This made my whole week! Thanks so much Josh! Very exciting. Farmer Brown adds to my write up:
He ain't selling no matter what. It's more of a structural thing than a thematic investment for him. Sell gold at 1550? 1650? 1738? Not his concern.Nice! I would add if anyone wants to buy all my silver at $500 an ounce I am taking offers, HA!
Great way to go on vacation.
I am leaving on a jet plane tomorrow morning. Please don't be too sad, it's just one week and absence makes the heart grow fonder or some stuff.
When I go on vacation I am 100% unplugged. No TV, no web, no phones, and no newspapers. I get totally disconnected (get it, a play on my name:)). It is actually fun after the first day and after day 5 or so I don't even remember all that stuff. A solid break can polish the brain and allow your best ideas and pure thoughts about things to get up to the surface. In the hustle and flow of today's crazy world this kind of time is very important.
I am really looking forward to the boat I have chartered to go fishing on the flats for Tarpon, Barracuda, and maybe even Grouper.
Here is the resort in Antigua:
It's funny but we like to hang out near the pools but I really only like going in the ocean water. Makes no sense but it is what it is.
Enjoy the week everyone!
Friday Night with Some Entertainment
You did not think I would leave you hanging did you? Some fun to remember me by. Please come back when I return!
The Robots are Advancing While we Fail to Understand the Implications
Yes, more robots! Laugh now but everyone is going to owe Economic Disconnect a huge apology when what's left of humanity is fighting for survival.
I submit, the Sarcos Robot, here dancing via link to a human, but you just KNOW that robot wants to do the running man dance move on his own:
I know, it's cute. Like a mogwai before being fed at freaking midnight cute.
Not as Clumsy or Random as a Blaster; an Elegant Weapon for a More Civilized Age
I collect swords and I do have a couple hand forged samurai blades from Windlass Steelcrafts, but if I ever really have disposable income, I want a real Japanese Samurai Sword from the old days. Someday....
Until then, enjoy this great video about the blades:
Droooool! Superior craftsmanship.
A few tunes for the big send off.
I know everyone has a Netflix account (NFLX, talk about missed traded Kid Dynamite, I blew that one!) so there is no reason to have not seen "Streets of Fire". None. Your homework for the week I am gone is see this film and there may be quiz when I get back, you know how I am with movie lines! Here is Diane Lane performing (lip syncing) "Tonight is What it Means to be Young":
Plenty more in the film.
Joaquin Phoenix And Reese Witherspoon do their own singing and perform "It Ain't Me Babe" from the film "Walk the Line":
Love that one!
We are going for the best clips/tunes here for the long week away so I am loading the headcutting duel from "Crossroads" so you can spool it up next Friday if you are bored:
Classic. Paint the fence Ralph!
Screw that band "The Divinyls" or whatever and their weak tune "I Touch Myself"; Joan Jett rocked the house with "Do You Wanna Touch Me" long before and with some sick, heavy guitar work (see the 1:05 minute mark with the overlapping guitar work):
Ok, I am going with two more.
Loyal reader Watchtower liked the last time I played this, so let's go again with the Del Shannon tune "Runaway":
Nothing wrong with a little AC/DC and "Who Made Who" which fits nicely with the robot discussion:
Have a good night and a great week. See you on the flip side.
