I don't have much to say market wise. I don't watch it much (no time!) but my 2 cents just looking at the charts I like and a few other things is that this run is about out of gas absent serious ECB/Fed action. Volume is dead and people are waiting now.
Friday Night Entertainment
Let me see what I can find.
Amazing and Cool Science
I had heard of such a thing, but I spent a bit of time looking at the phenomena of Quorum Sensing lately. What is that? Well, via Wiki:
Quorum sensing is a system of stimulus and response correlated to population density. Many species of Bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate gene expression according to the density of their local population. In similar fashion, some social insects use quorum sensing to determine where to nest. In addition to its function in biological systems, quorum sensing has several useful applications for computing and robotics.It's a fascinating interaction. Short version is that many genes and their products may only be switched "ON" if a certain population density is reached. The signal molecules are often potent and powerful gene regulators.
Of course, you must know the Mars Rover Curiosity landed this week on the Red Planet! Looking forward to all kinds of new pictures and experiments going forward. Gale Crater:

A few tips on what to see this weekend.
A better new era comedy was "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy". Here we learn about the cologne 'Sex Panther'; 60% of the time, it works every time to get you a date:
An early Quentin Tarantino film, "The 4 Rooms", was pretty good if bizarre. The final segment is a classic though, and thus here is the "Zippo Bet" scene:
Bringing the tunes so you don't have to look since 2007.
I ran across this post on YouTube while I was looking for cool covers of various songs. How about 25 famous riffs? Well Kelly Rosenthal plays them all and it's great (except for a Beatles song):
GREAT Lenny Kravitz cover. She does "The Trooper" too! @SayChanceMusic on Twitter.
I am a late in life KISS fan, and I really appreciate how good they are live. Try out "Tears are Falling" from 2004:
They are wonderful live.
Of course the best band I have ever seen live is Iron Maiden. Live from Donnington 1992 "Be Quick or be Dead":
Will it be an all live night? Maybe. Check out this haunting live show of "Zombie" by The Cranberries:
Just wonderful. A MUST see so please do.
Screw it, only bands that can be great live on the show tonight. That is the most important thing.
Depeche Mode "Personal Jesus" live in Barcelona 2009:
Saw them that year, just unreal. I used to know a certain C-T Hilltopper that loved this band.
If you are easily excited, you may want to skip a Rage Against the Machine live showcase of "Bullet in the Head":
From a Tokyo concert, The Clash and "London Calling":
Last call! Get a lighter, a beer, and significant other and get ready!
It's not live, but from the film "Walk The Line" I just cant stay away from "It ain't Me Babe":
Have a good night.
