Bad Moon Rising AKA Hope & Change...

(John Fogerty)
I see a bad moon a-rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earth quakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes a-blowing,
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Look's like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Circuit City Liquidation blues...

...well, here comes the Hope & Change, for 34,000 Circuit City Employees who will be out of work by March 31st.

I wish I had a way to get ahold of the hundreds of awesome Circuit City installers I have spoken to over the past 8 years. If I could, I'd remind them that they have a friend that can send them business, wherever they end up, and help them muddle through state paperwork, and all they would need to do is ask for the Shop Coordinator at 877-777-5020 between 8 and 7 Central time.

Any installer from Circuit that reads this and goes independent (or to another shop,) give that number a jingle- with 12 volt experience, $500k in general liability insurance, and a shop building I would be able to direct people to you ASAP.

For the other Circuit City folks, Godspeed. This is only the beginning of the retail disaster, I'm sure.

Is the Wall Streeet Journal TRYING to give me bad dreams?

Getting ready to go crash out for my ususal 3.5 (or so) hours of well earned sleep, and THIS DAMN WSJ ARTICLE has got me all thinky again.

But mostly in a hazy, dazed need a nap fanboy kinda way.
Nothing economic; just...

Is this frigging movie gonna get made already, or what?

Ms. Jolie-Pitt owes me a good movie, after watching that turd "Wanted."
Oh, it had its few good moments, but overall, I'm pissed that I gave up sleep in the hopes that it would get good.

Gimme more like Punisher:War Zone. Finally, somebody gets Frank Castle OVER 90% correct.

(and to the detractors that called it 2 dimensional and too violent: WTF? Apparently, you have never read any of the actual Punisher storylines. Sorry there was no Kirsten Dunst or gooey romance or Heath Ledger. Deal with it and be quiet.)
