That's Rocket Propelled Gold, or as Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank suggests, Reference Point Gold. Same outcome either way.

The Year in Musical Review

As some of you may have noticed, I often put a song at the end of my posts. Generally it is both a song that I like, and one that in some way relates to the post. And now I present a few memories from what I consider to be the musical highlights of the past year. Enjoy!

From
I can feel it coming... on Jan. 5, 2010, here's Phil Collins in a great live version of his 1981 song 'In the Air Tonight':



From
Greece is the Word on Feb. 12, here's the opening of the 1978 movie 'Grease':



From my little allegory titled
The Dukes of Wetton on May 6, here's a very sexy Jessica Simpson reviving Nancy Sinatra's 1966 hit song 'These Boots Are Made for Walkin':



From
The Old Hyperinflation Question on June 9, here's Alanis Morissette singing, "but this is not allowed, you're uninvited" in 'Uninvited':



From
Confiscation Anatomy – Part 2 on Aug. 13, here's The Mighty Mighty Bosstones asking, "Have you ever had the odds stacked up so high, you need a strength most don't possess?" in 'The Impression That I Get':



From
Just Another Hyperinflation Post - Part 3 on Sept. 13, here's a rockin' version of Phil Collins' 'In the Air Tonight' from the Miami Vice soundtrack, performed by the Miami-based metal band Nonpoint, set to a montage of hyperinflation-related pictures:



From
One Tin Soldier on Oct. 13, here's the song 'One Tin Soldier' from the 1971 film 'Billy Jack':



From
Happy Halloween, here's Danny Elfman of Oingo Boingo singing "We Close Our Eyes (and another year has come and gone)," a great song from the Boingo Farewell concert which I attended:



From
Dilemma 2 – Homeless Dollars on Nov. 5, here's Joss Stone looking oh so sexy singing Dusty Springfield's classic 'Son of a Preacher Man' at the UK Music Hall of Fame:



And last but not least, here's a video from
Priceless, way back in Sept. 2008. As yet, this video is my unrivaled favorite on this blog:



Bonus Video: The video above, 'Take a Load Off Fannie' was created by the
same guy that made the "Quantitative Easing Explained" video that I posted here. At the time I put it up it only had a couple thousand views. It's the one that introduced the very funny term, "The Ben Bernank," and it has since gone viral with over 3.8 million views. Because of that video, Omid Malekan has made a few TV appearances on CNBC, etc. He is a creative and talented guy, and he now has a music video version of Quantitative Easing Explained. Enjoy!



Happy New Year to all of you and all the best in 2011... year of the RPG we like to call Freegold!


Sincerely,

 

FOFOA
