Inflation and Deflation, What is the big deal!?

Well as some of you might know, the fed was worried about deflation (that is until congress agreed for 1.6 trillion new dollars to be out in the economy).  I am going to be talking about inflation and deflation and why they are such a bad thing.  I will start off with deflation and work my way into inflation (since it is talked about more in today’s world).  I will conclude with what I think no inflation/deflation would do to our economy.

Animation 'What is Love?'

Well I'm working on an animation that I am calling 'What is Love?'  The main reason I am calling it that is because the background music to it is 'Haddaway - What is Love'

The Haunting in Connecticut

I thought that the movie was alright.  It wasn't the best movie nor the worst movie that I've seen.  It had a pretty good plot, knowing it was based off a true story (now I want to look up the true story to see how similar it really is).

Is Democracy the Best Form of Government?

            I am going to start off by stating the question, "Is democracy the best form of government?"  Then I will define the words democracy, best, and government.  I will then go into my saying that a democracy isn't the best for of government.  I will talk about how a democracy is inefficient and it leaves room for improvements.  Leaving room for these improvements means it can get better and that it is not the best.  There is a little flaw that was found in my argument.  The flaw is in my definition of 'best.'  I didn't realize this until after I wrote it.  So, I went back and redefine the word best.  Best is a word that has two different sides to it.  It can mean best as in better then all other existing things, or it can mean it's the perfect thing.

Philosophizing

Well this post is inspired by the recent watching of Waking Life.  It raises many philosophical questions that I have asked in the past (but probably worded in a way that is easier to understand).

I once had a philosophy instructor tell me, "The best way to philosophize is to make the best argument for something you don't believe in, and then try to prove it wrong logically."

Waking Life

Well I have been told to see Waking Life by many people.  It is very interesting.  It raises a lot of philosophical questions that I have asked myself and others in the past.

The movie starts off kind of slow and is kind of confusing but this is because of all the questions it raises.

In addition, the first 15 or 20 minutes are weird and make you feel like your watching the movie drunk.  It is just how the animation is done.  After the 20 minutes you will start to get use to it.

I Love You, Man

I thought that this movie was a good romantic comedy movie.  It was funny thoughout the whole movie.  I liked how this movie felt like it was the right ammount of time, it wasn't too long and it wasn't too short.  They did a very good job in keeping the audience attention.

Busy, busy, busy

Well I have been one busy man.  I was working on a custom Drupal install for the company I work for (I will post the layout under the projects page, tonight or tomorrow night).  Feel free the use the layout at your own risk (It was a pretty project specific layout, but with some minor changes it could be made for any website).

I am still not completely done with my other gallery sorter project.  I just want to make a second admin page for it, so after an image has been added to it, the data can be changed (without having to log-on and change the database by hand).

The Last House on the Left Movie Review

I thought ‘The Last House on the Left’ was a pretty good movie.  All in all it had a decent plot and pretty good acting.  I haven’t seen the original and have been told that I should see it.  I wonder how much different it is going to be, and which one I think will be better?

It was definitely rated ‘R’ for a reason.  It was very graphic and violent.  If you get queze from blood and guts at all I would strongly recommend not seeing this movie.  To give a feel for how violent it is I will describe a little part of the opening scene.

** WARNING: Opening Scene SPOILER **

Watchmen Movie Review

Watchmen was an long movie.  I thought it was interesting and really cool at parts but boring at others.  Some of my negetive thoughts about the movie might be just because of not knowing anything about 'Watchmen' before I went to the movie.

2009 Market Predictions!

The market is the market, regardless what you want to use as the market.  You can use Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, Russell 2000, etc.  Most individual investors that don’t follow the market very much will use the Dow Jones Industrial Average as the market because that is what is most highlighted in the media.  Most Professional investors will use the S&P 500 as the market.  Regardless of what you use we are all wondering the same question, when will the market hit the bottom?

Buy Financials!?!

Financials are having a tough time right now.  Banks don't know how much toxic assets they have from the start of the housing crisis.  This lead to what we are in now, a financial crisis.  With all this bad debt we are now seeing the financial sector (and the whole stock market) at an all time low.  I have a couple of investment ideas
