I was away all day attending to some things. Everyone ready for the weekend?
Welcome to October Friday
It was another bad day in the markets to close the quarter. At this point I think getting a handle on how badly China is slowing is key, along with how bad the slow down in the US will be. The ECRI is now saying the US has entered recession ,and last summer they said we would not even though it looked for all the world like we would. Not a good item of information.
At this point I am content to keep making lists of things I want to buy, and I keep screening looking for some sign of a real bottom. Still not happening. I will be attending The Big Picture Conference on October 11th and maybe after that it there will be a clearer picture going forward. First trip to NYC! Cannot wait.

Let's kick the bad month of September to the curb and welcome in October!
Robot Revolution, Will it Start Here?
We are far past where robot intelligence has gained escape velocity. Now the company Boston Dynamics has moved ahead with their powerful new robot, Alpha Dog, which may be the basis for the robot army (via Geekologie):

It's coming. For us all.

Some things worth seeing.
Not a film, but I was in the mood for the final battle between Duncan MacLeod and his nemesis Kalas atop the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Skip to 38:00 mark on:
The cult classic film "The Warriors" show what happens when you think you are scoring with girls, but they just want to shoot you:
And they are not even married (KIDDING!!!)
Ok, some tunes to get the weekend going.
I was discussing this tune last night on Twitter. Try out Anthrax with the very good "Black Lodge":
Ok, only Ozzy/Randy tune I will play is the melodic and soulful "Goodbye to Romance":
Always have loved this tune! Lenny Kravitz and "Are you Gonna go my Way":
For Jake of EconomPic, here is "Africa" by Toto:
Ok class, two songs to go then I am out.
Nice YouTube find! For all the gold and silver lovers out there, here is Linda Ronstadt and The Eagles playing "Silver Threads and Golden Needles":
Last call, grab a girl, a drink and whatever else may be of use (a feather? Spatula?)
Closing the show with a little Doo-Wop if you like that. You may know this one from a classic film. Thurston Harris and Little Bitty Pretty One:
Have a good night.
