Churning Lots of Butter Friday

Just think, people that don't care or follow markets probably had a boring week.

It was heavy dose of churn the later part of the week. Not much is clear from today's action. I figured this might be a chopfest for a while. You just never know. With so much said all week I can leave it to the better writers out there to pontificate what will happen. I think it's time to move on to the weekend.

Friday Night Entertainment
Stuff you just won't find at other economic sites. I am cool like that.

Department of Annoyed
Hollywood is pissing me off. I am getting aggravated something fierce. First it was stupid remakes of legendary films (Red Dawn, Conan the Barbarian), but now they have gone TOO FAR!!!

Headline from iO9:
World War Z movie synopsis is nothing like the book, internet melts down
Travesty what is happening.

The World War Z novel is one of the best books I have ever read. If you think it is a zombie book only, you have no idea the portrait of the best (and worst) in humanity the novel weaves. A classic. So what does the movie business do? Make another stupid zombie movie out of it. From the article:
"The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself."
No thanks. Write your congress member today and get this blocked. Carry on.

Captured Critters
The deer are still coming at night to clean out the birdfeeder! Check out this guy with a nice rack of antlers (click any pic for larger view; all pics from my motion camera):
Two female deer caught in the act:
They eat a lot of birdseed.

Good finds from the Web.

Tell Charlie Daniels:
funny pictures history - The devil's in the house of the risin' sun
see more Historic LOL

Thinking about changing my avatar. Which one do you all like best?

Darth Bane:

My old one with Darth Vader:

Darth Malgus:
Let me know!

Film Clips
Movies you may or may not have seen.

In one of the more disturbing, hilarious, wildy uncomfortable scenes in cinema history, we learn way more than we need to in the film "Clerks". ***WARNING***: Not suitable for all viewers, raunchy stuff here so you have been warned:

OMG!! "Hey you, get back here!"

In the film "Rock Star" Mark Wahlberg gets an audition for a famous metal band and he makes it count. Skip to the 3:55 mark:

Very good.

Rock Blogging
Bringing the tunes since 2007.

Reader Watchtower pinged me with a GREAT find! Please enjoy Stevie and Lori Nicks performing "Nightbird" live:

Wonderful picks, thanks man.

Everyone is AC/DC crazy as of late! Reader Gawains had a whole list, let's try "Night Prowler" which is a touch of the blues:

Like that one.

Ok, this one is a mix of music/film. "Lunatic Fringe" by the Canadian band (side by each?) Red Rider was perfectly matched into the film "Vision Quest":

Now I want to box someone! I miss jumping the rope like that.

I am trying to get some Twitter song picks but as of writing no dice. What can you do, right?

I found an acoustic cover for one of my favorite tunes. Please take a listen to this stellar show of "Tears of the Dragon":

So amazing, I have no words. Wow.

Ok two songs left.

Had it on before, will have it on again. Best Van Halen song ever, "Atomic Punk":

Kick ass.

Last song!

Real talent? Forget those crappy TV shows, here is some. Evanescence on Letterman with "My Immortal":

Unreal. So pretty.

Have a good night.

I try to keep the profanity down to a minimum, but tonight I'm afraid it is just going to have to come out...

Holy shit that cover of Bruce Dickinson's song f'n rules!!!

Sweet find GYSC, I wish I could buy that for my MP3 player.

Wathtower, OMFG!!! I am spooling that all night. Unreal. Glad you saw the beauty in it.

Watchtower said...

Watching that vid makes me wish I could play guitar or some kind of instrument (I've tried but it's just not in me).
I don't envy people who have a lot of money because I know for a fact that it does not make you happy, but I do envy people who have a gift in the arts.
What it must be like to be able to express yourself in that manner, I bet it's wonderful.

Are you fattening those deer up for Thanksgiving? :)

Clerks was a great movie...loved the cut away of the black cat. Kevin Smith makes some funny stuff!

I've been a fan of Van Halen since their 1st album...wore that one out back when they were still vinyl.

Have a great weekend G.

I've never been a Van Halen fan. I saw them on their first tour, when they opened for Black Sabbath.

All of the magazines were ranting and raving about how Van Halen was showing up Black Sabbath. But this was San Antonio, the heavy metal capital of the world. If you want to make it, you have to make it there.

Van Halen came out and totally sucked. David Lee Roth tripped over the microphone stand and hit his head on the amplifier. They were literally booed off the stage.

Then Black Sabbath came out. 30 minutes into their set, Tony Iommi's amp blew out. So Bill Ward performed a drum solo, which Geezer Butler joined for a nice jazz combo. It lasted about 45 minutes.

Once Iommi's amp was fixed, Black Sabbath came back with something to prove. And they proved it.

Best set I ever saw. Never Say Die tour, 1978.

Sorry guys, but after that I always thought of Van Helen as a joke. In front of the most discrtiminating audience they blew it.

Black Sabbath had their problems and overcame them. When they came back, it was the hardest, roughest, most raw metal any of you have ever seen or heard.

I don't own a single Van Halen album. They suck, if you ask me. I do however own th Black Bock, which is all of Black Sabbath's albums remastered. They rock.

Van Halen sucks.

its funny you say that about the guitar, I tried to learn quite a few times but just have zero talent for it. I do envy guitar players, expression and gets all the ladies!

TSB, NO!! Our deer are family friends.

Gawains, tell us how you really feel! I do like a few Halen tunes especially Aomic Punk.

David Batista said...

Hmm, I might just have to read World War Z now. I had no idea you held it in such high esteem, GYSC. I've heard of the book, sure, and I do so love zombies (especially in movies and video games), so I get the feeling this will be right down my alley.

And, hey -- DARTH BANE!!!! :)

getyourselfconnected said...

David, World War Z is a special novel, on my tip 5 list. Its that good. Yeah, I am digging the Darth Bane avatar big time.
