Enjoy The Silence

I must be among a small handful of clueless contemporaries who had been blissfully unaware of the existence of the Youtube blogger PewDiePie, a Swedish millenial who apparently amassed over 50 Million subscribers and raked in over $7 Million a year in ad revenues. My first thought was that I must be doing something horribly wrong or that I may be in the wrong business. So just as I was getting all oiled up to deliver my first shirtless videocast I became aware of what all the hubbub had been about and thus quickly changed my mind.

Blast Off

I know exactly how you feel. For weeks on end equities gyrate inside a 50 handle channel and suddenly we get a blast off out of nowhere. Annoying.

Anchoring And The Bandwagon

I’ve been tangentially following the news at a safe distance over the past week and frankly felt tempted to pinch myself every once in a while, just to make sure that I’m not just experiencing some surreal nightmare. And perhaps to take a shower just to be on the safe side. As a rule I have kept political discussions at a minimum here at Evil Speculator in order to stay on mission (i.e. banking coin) and to not pollute the discourse with emotionally charged exchanges. But the current train wreck over the latest allegations involving President-elect Trump and a supposed Russian sex trap involving urination was just too sweet to pass up. Probably not in the way you think [...]
