ohio halloween PARTY.

hey, i'm going to ohio for halloween to see mike jaynes and to dress up like something great.

let me know if you wanna come.

i'm booking my flight august 1st!

so funny

I found out about this site - and it's hilarious. Please check it out. It really made me LOL and is very quotable for you boys.


Stop me if you've heard this one...

I saw these last nights with some friends...Hilarious!

This one spurned the debate of whether or not either of us would do katie couric. Most of us agreed on yes, but for different reasons. A few said cause she's hot, others said just because you could brag about it. I think it'd be awesome just because you would always think that she was telling the news to you personally, and also you could tell everyone some of the stories she's bringing up is totally because you said something, or that any particular line that night was just for you...

Don't forget about Jobs!

Gettin blessed by Joe Biden in space...

and now to lighten the mood =)

Also there is a metal remix of that song, that turns out to be a remix, of the remix. They keep the original video, the lil jon part, and also parody what little jon says in metal form.


go forth and multiply yourselves

Isn't Communism Fun?

Ran across this a few minutes ago... nothing too special, just the latest edition of The Onion. It provided me a fun bit of levity after getting gored in the ass by a bankruptcy exam. Check it out, and don't forget to pay tribute to our new Chinese masters!

Happy Birthday Josephine!!!

This is going to be awesome... I can feel it...

Check out this story from the Washington Post. Now.

It tells us very, very little about what's actually going on, but I have a feeling that this is the beginning of yet another historical scale clusterfuck... the kind of shit that makes Sir Edward Gibbon wish he was still around so he could write about it. Feel free to speculate in the comments as to what's actually going on.

Also, if any of you are actually interested, I've come across this full version of Matt Tiabbi's Rolling Stone screed against Goldman Sachs. They seem to have ommitted a lot of the gory mechanical details in the abridged version that I posted a link to earlier... but this... this just makes me angry. Anyone interested in justice n' shit really should read and try to understand what's going on here... and what's even more ridiculous is the number of people who are actually jumping to the defense of this firm... who are so comfortable with their ideological blinders that they refuse to impute moral culpabilty to the institutions who are so actively subverting democratic ideals and engaging in outright securities fraud at our expense. This Adam Smith/Pavlov reaction baffles me.

"The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money."

God... hyperbole really is the most fucking awesome thing ever, you know?

Economic Collapse Hodgepodge Tuesday

You know how occasionally... just occasionally... I'll go off on rants and convoluted explanations about things that I know less about than I'm letting on and you really don't want to hear about in the first place, but that I nonetheless regard as fundamental for understanding the future of western democracy? This is sorta like that, only I'm not cornering you at flashbacks some eight beers deep, and you don't have to feign interest because you're that good of a friend. :) But seriously, though, this stuff is pretty interesting.

Full disclaimer: I certainly don't want to bring anyone down over the following, so if you're easily disturbed by national financial uncertainty (or are heavily vested in the status quo) you might want to just disregard this post and turn your attention to the Disney/Dali collaboration a little further down.

I'm bored with my studies... fucking real estate fraud litigation horseshit... and have decided to put together a post of little bits and pieces of the bigger (and unremittingly bleak) economic picture we all keep hearing about. I don't know nearly as much as I'd like about it... it's one of those areas where the more you learn exposes just how much you don't and probably will never know. But me... I get a real kick out of watching the collapse unfold. Yeah, I'm something of an armchair doomsayer in my spare time, but if you're stuck in the lower decks of the same sinking ship as everyone else, what else are you going to but stay informed and laugh heartily at the whole clusterfuck? Hell, I personally think I'm gonna come out of this whole thing ahead of the pack, as my massive law school debts will be rendered worthless by coming devaluation of the dollar. In short, I see no reason to fret these days, as I really don't have much interest in watching the late 20th century maintain long into the 21st... it's just that the mechanics of this change are fucking fascinating. So, below is a little sampling of information I've come across that you might find interesting.

First: Why the unemployment figures are rigged... and real unemployment is approaching depression era levels

Also: I think I've told a lot of you about this lecture, but watch as Elizabeth Warren explains the possibility of massive future wealth disparity (as a function of the increasingly unstable American family).

On the Federal Reserve: This one is complicated. I have a lot of problems with the structure of the Fed (namely how our money supply is controlled exclusively by a shadowy board of governers elected by private shareholders in the form of major banks... yes, our country's central bank is privately owned... and how there is no accountability to Congress or Article III courts... let alone any sort of firm, transparent audit process in place). Check out the following, as a top Fed official plays dumb before Congress and refuses to disclose anything about the $9 trillion or so in new money they've just introduced into the system. (Also, pretty much any video on youtube of Rep. Grayson sticking it to the oligarchs is worth your time)
Incidentally, Rep. Ron Paul, that stodgy old "constitutionalist" maverick, has introduced legislation in the House requiring a full audit of the Fed... at last count, it has something like 245 votes behind it, meaning that we may get the veil pulled back for us pretty soon.

My personal favorite Jenga pieces in the whole mess:
Anyone heard of Credit Default Swaps? This piece does a pretty good job of explaining them and their role in destabilizing our economy (though a lot of guys made a shitload of money over the course of a decade trading these bullshit abstractions that pass for insurance policies). If you want a little more in-depth discussion, check out the CDS wiki.

Why Goldman Sachs officials, if not wholly to blame, should be the first to hit the wall when the revolution comes:
I want to say that I called this one before Rolling Stone, of all publications, wound up turning it into kind of a big thing. There's been a sort of war of words now between RS (which is now somewhat relevant for the first time in... gah... at least since they caved and put Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show on the cover) and Goldman Sachs (who used the AIG scandal as a conduit to funnel billions of taxpayer dollars their way, and then used the whole executive bonus scandal as a clever sleight of hand to distract from the funneling of much larger amounts). Anyway, check this piece out... maybe not the most solid, objective reporting I've ever read, but I think it sums up the problem nicely.

Only tangentially related:

... and this is just a little smattering of all the press out there waiting for the informed citizen to untangle. And Christ, it is daunting. All the stuff I just posted is pretty scattershot and unorganized... really more just trivia about our problems than comprehensive overview. But, you know, I see this all as good news in the end. Things are about to change, and if you're like me you'll agree that it's been a long time coming. So me... I like to spend my time daydreaming about the brave new world a'coming down the pike. If nothing else, we'll have some great stories to tell our grandchildren, right? :)

Most mondays feel like Disney and Dali

also the best MJ impersonation that ends with kicking a repo man in the taint (1:50 starts the crazy)

Robert McNamara dead at 93.

Love him or hate him, sonofabitch was responsible for a lot of civilian deaths. Cool guy, though.
