You’re on Notice! Randomosity

  • imageNetflix raises prices and splits DVD rentals and movie streaming.  Basically, if you want both, your prices are going up.  Will folks cancel?  I think some will re-examine their subscriptions.  I think I’m going to drop the DVD service and keep the streaming.  Or put everything on hold (suspend account) while I search other options.
  • Moody’s warns Uncle Sam about debt.  Shocker.  Well, any gap down may be buyable.  Don’t you think the government is going to act fast to raise the debt ceiling to a quadrillion?  (Or whatever it takes these days…)
  • Say, the National League has won 2 all-star games in a row, and 2 of the last 3 World Series.  To early to call a trend, but …. hmm.
  • Eating leftover pizza for dinner.  Never as good.
  • Doug Kass covers his shorts in the after hours on Moody’s announcement.  Hmm, that one worked out.
  • Temperatures 15 degrees below normal in Sacramento.  Thanks, “global warming.”  Seriously, temperatures in the 70’s?  Feels nice, but this is pool swimmin’ season.  Between a cold May and June, the swimming season is a very narrow window this year!
  • Did you see the talking parrots on America’s Got Talent?  Cute, but is that really talent?
  • Ben Bernanke thinking about – er, “weighing,” more quantitative easing“The possibility remains that the recent weakness may prove more persistent than expected and that deflationary risks might reemerge, implying additional policy support,” Bernanke said.  The Fed always seems to take a lot of words to convey messages.   I can imagine the high-brow dinner conversations…
