Back in Black

So I said I'd resume posting a month and a few weeks ago, and its a Thursday night not a Monday..well I had a bit of a vacation. In any event while I've been catching up on my reading, watching some TV, playing video games and catching some cinema, the Good Ship Tory seems to have run aground. With the defection of intellectual heavy weight Belinda (Just call me Barbie) Stronarch, we lost a tight vote to disolve parliament and hold an election while we had the momentum on our side. This will be her most significant impact on politics ever, stiffling at least momentarily needed change. On the other hand the IQ of the Conservative Caucus has likely skyrocketed since then.

The polls seem to be back where they were at the begining of this sponsorship mess which tells me a number of things a) we really need to fire our communications people, our message is not being sold. We need some innovation in that particular area, hell at this point bring in the guys from Axe Bodyspray and we'd be doing better at getting our message out than we currently are. b) Most voters have the memory of a goldfish when it comes to political scandals. I've said it before and I'll say it again, we need to fight the Liberals on the issues not just wave the bloody sponsorship shirt. Were I in Stephen's place I'd talk less about corruption and more about the fact that there was more than 9 billion dollars in surplus, and that the Liberals and NDP in their infinite wisdom don't happen to think any of that belongs back with the people who make it.

I personally would love to make the next election about the arrogance of a government who thinks they know how to spend people's money better than the people themselves whom they "claim" to represent.

As Monty Python would say "Now for something completely different"...

The NBA playoffs came to a dramatic finish with the San Antonio Spurs edging the Detriot Pistons in game 7 of the NBA finals. The first 4 games were blow outs, but the last three games of that series have been some of the most amazingly competitive basketball you could ever hope to watch. Congradulations to all those athletes who made a series that the "media didn't want" into "must see tv".

On another note...

If you see one movie this summer see Batman Begins - I can't decide whether Christian Bale out does Val Kilmer in making Batman darker and edgy, that comparison is something I'd consider too close to call. In any event, the story takes Batman where Batman should be - a slightly warped, twisted, dark path, a truely Gothic Gotham punctuated with a measure of sardonic humor. Michael Caine is outstanding as Alfred, on the other hand I'm fairly sure you could ask Michael Caine to play virtually any party and he'd nail it. While having Liam Neeson in the part of the villian and Morgan Freeman as Batman's equivalent of Q made the casting simply outstanding.

While I'm plugging movies, I don't think its still in theaters but when it comes out on video do see Kingdom of Heaven. The battle sequences are stunning, and the medieval pagetry and turmoil of warring armies is incredible. That and the middle eastern cinematography provides a stunning backdrop to the movie. If you like sword, this movie is for you.

And finally, I promise the next post will follow this one far more quickly than this one the last.

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

The wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.

Good lord, Chris, the spambots have found you big time. I suggest you turn on blogger word identification as so many have been forced to do of late.

On Batman Begins: It does not revitalize the franchise, it redefines it. Moody, funny, creepy and brilliant, Bale is a superb Batman and is not he standard by which all must be judged. (You're right, though, Kilmer was the best from the previous films.)

I loved watching the Batman persona develop, the attempt to make the whole Batman idea plausible, and the great villains. Fantastic tone, production design and plot. simply amazing. You're absolutely right - it's the movie of the summer.
