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.

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.
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):
Good finds from the Web.
Tell Charlie Daniels:

Thinking about changing my avatar. Which one do you all like best?
My old one with Darth Vader:
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:
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":
Real talent? Forget those crappy TV shows, here is some. Evanescence on Letterman with "My Immortal":
Unreal. So pretty.
Have a good night.
