Getting Dizzy on a Friday

Friday at last! It has been a long week on many fronts. I need a break and maybe you do to. Finally saw the new roof tonight as I got home before dark, looks most excellent.

In my last post (Late Night, and a Favor) in which I asked readers to check out my second iBankCoin Blogger Network submission (my two posts currently the two most viewed blogs on the network FWIW), I got a comment from a long time reader (4 year anniversary!) known as Watchtower. It's the kind of thing that really makes blogging worthwhile, and I am humbled by the kind words. Thank you, keep coming back!

Market Observations
It was an insane week. I am still digesting it all. I would say I am more constructive on the market here. I will get more specific over the weekend. Main take home point is that the meat of the big rally is intact and the doubt out there about is still large. This could still run higher than many think. Of course I write that and this weekend who knows what the headlines will be!

It would suck big time if Kevin Depew's latest article got lost in the shuffle of the week. I cannot tell you how important I think this post is so bookmark and spend a solid time reading it over this weekend:
Investing Is Back: What to Expect in 2012 and Beyond
Important things here.

Friday Night Entertainment
Fun can be free, right?

Wikipedia Plug
You all know I am a Wikipedia addict and will read over 100 articles a day if I get the chance. I have donated to the site for their fund drive and I would ask you give a few dollars to the single greatest resource on the web. I mean, where else can you learn all about Aerogel anyway?:

Fun with Images
In the words of Princess Leia, "Here they come!"

No worries ladies, I am drinking it up:
demotivational posters - LIQUOR

He ate a whole person?:
photobomb that guy - Classic: You Have a Serious Defect

Film Clips
A few rental ideas.

With all the DEFCON furor this week, why not go with "Wargames" when DEFCON 1 came into play due to computer glitch:

Love that film.

I don't know what this movie is, but I think it's an early Jackie Chan film. Stumbled on it looking for vids tonight and this is hilarious:


Rock Blogging
Bringing the tunes since 2007.

Pink Floyd has always been an enigma to me. I like some of the songs a ton, other almost none. I do like "Wish You Were Here", no doubt about it and author Jennifer Hillier won the right to first song so here it is:

Who remembers Marcy Playground and "Sex and Candy" and whatever happened to them?:

My obsession with Nightwish continues! I have no idea what she is saying but this vocal performance by former lead vocal for the band Tarja Turunen (with Harus) of "Varpunen Jouluaamuna" is killing me as great tonight:


Ok, a little more randy? No problem. Why not Iron Maiden's ode to the R.A. Heinlein classic "Stranger in a Strange Land"? Live no less:

So great.

Two left.

I have not listened to a song by Florence and the Machine since a dear friend of mine died in September. I do love this song, "The Dog Days are Over" and live is the only way to go:


Last call! Grab a girl, a drink, and whatever else you may need. Lighters up!

Sorry, but seemed most fitting to play a song by a band called Europe that had the vision to make a tune called "The Final Countdown":

Should have worked bond sales into that tune!

Have a good night.


Jennifer Hillier said...

Thanks for playing my song! I always wonder what I should do when you say to "grab a girl". I've never grabbed a girl before, am I missing out?

That LIQUOR picture is hilarious.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Iron Maiden - nice!
You read almost as many articles on Wikipedia as I do on blogs. Scary, huh?

Jake said...

Final Countdown. Reminds me of Arrested Development (the show, not the 90's country hip hop group).

getyourselfconnected said...

well I guess I am guilty of thinking most readers are men! But yeah, grab a girl and tell me how it goes!

Alex, wow! Thanks for stopping in. I have a terrible Wiki issue...

thanks a lot for everything this week.

I thought Marcy Playground was going to be big too.

That Europe video is wrong on so many musical levels, but I just couldn't stop watching it.

Surprised you are on Blogger. Why not use a WordPress blog?

getyourselfconnected said...

Hey BC! I started with this set up and it's like a dear old friend. Would like to step it up, but so far it's working as is.

(Thats BClund!!! that left a comment!)

Pavman said...

That Europe has opened up bad yet innocent memories! My high school class performed a cross between west side story rocket in your pocket, flying pickets and Europe. Almost a glee equivalent. Forgotten already. Days before CD's

Pav, stroll down memory lane!

You really should give Pink Floyd more of a listen, GYC. Starting with Meddle, one of the first concept albums.

They followed that with Dark Side of the Moon, which was their breakthrough album. It spent more weeks on the top 100 chart than any other album ever recorded.

Then they released Wish You Were Here. That album was dedicated to Syd Barrett, their original guitar player. He came up with the name Pink Floyd and founded psychedelic rock. They used to play in this old abandoned water reservoir, with a concrete dome roof. Their special effects guy would mix colored oils and water on an overhead projector to make the roof look like a lava lamp. They gave out LSD-laced sugar cubes at the door.

But Syd went insane. That guy dropped so much acid it fried his brain. When they made their first trip to the US and appeared on American Bandstand, he just stood there with his arms limp, staring blankly out at the audience, didn't play a note. So they had to dump him.

They brought in David Gilmour, who had actually taugh Barrett how to play guitar. And the rest is history.

The band achieved phenomenal success, and Wish You Were Here was written for their fallen comrade. So is The Wall. Pink is Syd--"Pink isn't well / He stayed back at the hotel / And they sent us along as a surrogate band / We're gonna find out where you fans really stand."

It's sad really, such talent so wasted. The band broke up because Roger Waters kept taking all the credit for the music and lyrics, as if Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright had nothing to do with the songs.

I stilly say Animals is one of the best albums out there.

Deliver - If you've decided to award the employee her requested raise, make sure that she understands she has to continue her efforts, and there is no room for complacency. If on the other hand you deliver bad news, do so diplomatically and offer her suggestions on how to improve her performance to ensure a favorable outcome next time, and set a date for her next review. Other factors that determine salary are education and experience. Designers, who have graduated from esteemed universities and design schools, garner higher salaries. Creativity, talent, and reputation allow a designer to stand out amongst competitors, and further increases income potential. Designers who respect their clients and employees have higher incomes and do not forget a client base of well known celebrities and headliners will boost a designer to the top of the salary scale. Do not lose the hope if you are jobless and need quick fix financial solution, applying with loans for jobless people is the worthwhile and swift loan option. Nothing on earth can be done or brought without money. Money is the most important thing now a day. It is impossible to survive in today's world without money. Money do not grow on tree neither they come with rainfall. One has to earn money so that he can live his life. Earning money is possible only by proper channel i.e. proper career development. The career development process is very important and serious thing in everyone's life. Building up a proper career in life can bring you with the basic necessities of life. in fact career itself is a necessity of life. Career heavily depends upon the studies, lifestyle, brain, etc. one need to have a lot of brain to earn a lot of money. Education: Looking at the best tips on career development plan one should know how much important role is played by the education of the person. Education plays an important role in building personality of the person. It brings the person with the sense of choosing what is right for him or what is wrong for him. An uneducated person can build good career but not like the educated person. The education makes a person healthy from the mind. Moreover while studying one need to choose a discipline with which his career is related. Fresher: People usually think once they get into the professional field they should earn good quality of money in no time. This is very wrong view of the people. Every new comer needs to start with zero. One should remember slow and steady always wins the race at the ends. When it comes to job the fresher should start with the small one. he or she can work as freelancer. This helps them to earn money as well as experience. Business: When discussing on how to manage your career the business is choice of many people. For business one has to be very much careful. No matter how small or large scale business you are start, there are two thing you must have i.e. a small amount for very first investment and idea. Even money cannot work a bit until or unless you have a big idea.
