Full Moon Friday

Special thoughts go out to all those that serve every day. On Veteran's Day they deserve the respect of everyone. All my best to all those that have done, and currently do, difficult things every day for all of us. Come home soon.

Chasing or Dodging Rolling Boulders
I was very constructive on the market to start the week and opened up some positions on Tuesday while market was correcting down. Wednesday came and I got flushed out of all of them for losses. It was not the loss that bugs me, its the recency effect. We have seen reasonable flush outs turn into routs that can eat a position alive. Still gun shy I guess and with tight stops. The only stock I will be revisiting is TPC which I think is a real runner going forward. Seems one is always chasing a boulder uphill and then trying to dodge it when it reverses just as we get close.

In summary it can be like Jungle Hunt and trying to get up the hill:

Friday Night Entertainment
After another wild week we can all use a break. Well I can for sure.

Picture Pages
Because cheap laughs are priceless.

No plans for the weekend? Two words: Martini Night:
funny pictures history - I love a martini
see more Historic LOL

This might work, just move the sign:
demotivational posters - WANTED
see more Very Demotivational
That is an instant classic.

Robot Takeover of Humanity will Start with a Good Idea
I have harped on the coming of the Robopocalypse for years. Recent news shows how it will start, with a seemingly good idea. Here you go:
Honda's new ASIMO robot can now pour you a drink all on its own
So this is great, the robot can pour you a beer, you get a bit tippy, and the uncanny valley is crossed that much easier! Next up for Asimo; the robot that can fix the brakes on your car. Yeah right, total set up.

The Ghost Ship Baychimo
I have a great fondness for lost ship tales and one of the better ones is of the Swedish steamer Baychimo Abandoned in 1931 after being trapped in pack ice near Barrow Alaska she was presumed sunk. From Wikipedia, a sample:
The Baychimo did not sink, however, and over the next several decades there were numerous sightings of the ship. People managed to board her several times, but each time they were either unequipped to salvage the ship or driven away again by bad weather. The last recorded sighting of the Baychimo was by a group of Inuit in 1969, 38 years after she was abandoned.
Great list of sightings as well. Enjoy.

Film Clips
Save NFLX by streaming or renting a d film why don't ya. And buy some GMCR while you are at it.

It's no secret I think Kevin Costner's "Wyatt Earp" far surpasses the poorly done equivalent film, "Tombstone". Seems I am in the minority, but after seeing this scene when Wyatt meets Doc Holliday (Dennis Quaid, one of best performances) you may change your mind. Skip to the 2:00 minute mark and enjoy (sorry for bad quality):

Scott Glenn has starred in two of my favorite unknown films, what are the odds on that? Anyways, special bonus tonight, two more picks that you should see then submit a review to me. I will publish them.

From 1983, "The Keep":

From 1982, "The Challenge":

Great scene after this fight keeps this movie in my mind.

Rock Blogging
The tunes have been coming since 2007. 4 years, really?

Leading off the night, as is tradition here since forever, is a birthday shout out to my friend @MarketPlunger:
By request of birthday boy, enjoy Bob Marley and "Burnin and Lootin":

Enjoy your birthday my friend.

Another Twitter friend is @CoderTrader. If you don't know him, you are missing out. Had a brake fiasco tonight, but after a killer week nailing the market a request is in full order. Tim McGraw and "My Next 30 Years":

All my best.

I have mentioned him before, but when reader G first stopped in in 2007 he was, well G. Shortly after this blog started he went for the Armed Forces and for some time I never heard from him. Now and again he pops in, but make no mistake; he was private G to start and now he is Lieutenant G! So proud of his efforts, and wish he would EMAIL me so we could talk (hint!). Anyways, his requests go right into the show so here is Crash Test Dummies and "Mmm Mmm Mmm":

So happy to see you back my friend.

Dinosaurtrader pinged me with this sick as all get out tune "The Hoodoo" and I submit this tune for full enjoy:

I like that one.

Two songs left, better grab a drink or a girl. Both would be just right.

From an 80's icon film, "Old Enough to Rock and Roll" via Rainey Haynes:

Gets me going.

Last tune.

I am a metal head in many forms of the word. Love the acoustic solo from Metallica's song "To Live is to Die" and so please check out this 3 guitar show, all acoustic of the solo section:

Not great but not bad.

Have a good night.

Love To Live is to Die. It's no Fade to Black, but not much is...

Enjoy the weekend!

Thanks Jake.

LOL! The Asimov fixing your brakes made me literally laugh out loud. :)

And I know Wyatt Earp is the far superior film on the man, yet Tombstone has always been a guilty favorite of mine. I think it's Kilner's Doc Holliday that does it for me.

"You're a daisy if you do!"

Definitely pre-Enter Sandman. I always thought once they cut their hair they were trying to be Alice In Chains.
My fav is Frayed Ends. Great song to start the day with, especially when I have a long commute ahead of me!

I agree with David. Tombstone is one of my favorites, and it's because of Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday. That's some of the best character acting I've seen in years. Emilio Estevez as Bill the Kid comes in a close second.

I never saw Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp, mainly because I don't care much for Kevin Costner and I figured it would be a western version of Water World.

But then we all know that Clint Eastwood makes the best westerns.

I don't go to the teater to see very many movies these days. The last movie I saw in a theater was Spiderman II. Usually, I just wait for them to come out on HBO or DirecTV.

One movie I will definitely go to the theater to see is Act of Valor. This is really cool. It's about Navy Seals, and it stars active duty Navy Seals, probably because stunt men can't do what these guys can do.

It started out as a training film, then became a documentary, and finally was made into a feature film. Here's the trailer.
