This is the most hilarious thing I’ve seen in a long time: it is the final scene from the original Star Wars (that is, Episode IV) in which Luke, Han, and Chewy walk into the throne room to the John Williams fanfare.

I offer this up for three reasons: (a) it’s a lovely song; (b) it’s a clever video; (c) Diana Krall is a babe.
You may have seen a mention somewhere about the nearly 1,300-page PowerPoint presentation that entrepreneur Ryan Allis put together.
I’ve considered myself an entrepreneur ever since I was a teenager, although the only “real” business I started (and sold……..) was Prophet Financial, back in early 2005. Slope of Hope is sort of a business (revenue, profits, tax returns, and all that stuff) but, let’s face it – – Slope is just me – – so it’s not really a “business”, although it does keep bread on the table.
Anyway, I’m skimming this giant presentation, and although a good portion of it consists of obvious notions and values, there are a few gems here and there. I like this slide in particular: (more…)
I humbly offer one of my favorite albums ever recorded; it is brilliant (composed by Philip Glass with lyrics by Paul Simon, Suzanne Vega, David Byrne and Laurie Anderson.) Perfect for trading……..

He can’t get to sleep again.
So he repeats these words
Over and over again:
