I didn’t say it was Art; what I said was that Reuters reported it as Freaky Art; at least one person in that infamous nuthouse has a sense of value and humor however rare it is for one person to have both.

Any cash buyers?

 It appeared in the Headline story today [Wednesday, January 25, 2012 run date] of my most loved financial columns which in turn is owned by Media24, a name you will recognize from a previous Blog.  In other respects, but excluding my respect, they represent the big guys that you find amongst investment bankers, weapon smugglers, con-artists and  other Politicos and the general Crook-in-Chief schmucks that we see in Davos every year.  Oops, I almost forgot options, derivative and future option dealers, the rich guys stealing from the poor.

 Let me not distract you any further.  Quote Reuters [verbatim from Fin 24]:

 FREAKY: “Orange Sports Figure” by Jean-Michel Basquiat at a contemporary arts exhibition in Doha. The painting is estimated to fetch between $4 680 000 and $4 240 000 when it is auctioned off in London. (Reuters)

It’s yours [the painting I mean] if you have a spare 5 million USA dollar bill once the Bama has done with you.

 And for my old friends, you may note that something shocked me out of my recent state of paralysis; with your love I shall improve; or so I hope.

Sorry Folks, this is all that I can manage.  I am off to my old friend Rip again and hope to be back soon but I cannot promise when.

 Thanks for understanding and for your love.

2011 in review

January 2, 2012

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.
