Random Analogy

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Goldman Sachs: short selling :: seeing a crime: instead of helping, you grab a camera, take pictures then sell the pictures to the newspaper.

Agree or disagree?

That's how I roll.

Article Link Corprolalia: Matt Taibi, Lionel Messi, a Shakespear Imposter, Banksy, M.I.A., and a Rap Song about Harold's Chicken Shack

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

This should be two posts but I'm making it one just so I can be the only blogger of all time to put these together.

First two great articles I read today. And one yesterday. And it took me damn near all day.

1. Matt Taibbi's very important read about our impotent congress grabbing its ankles for wall street and their lobbyists.

2. Sports Illustrated's awesome article about the LeBron James of soccer- Lionel Messi and his relationship with his coach, and is the Babe Ruth of Argentinan soccer, Diego Maradona (pictured above as Lego). If you more or less know most of the story, this article is well-researched (and yes, long) enough to still teach you a lot of new stuff and if you are excited about the World Cup but aren't too familiar with who is good or any storylines, this might be a good place to bone up on your knowledge to make the World Cup more interesting.

3. Not to drink too much of the haterade, but the NYT Magazine coverstory on M.I.A. is good. She had it comin.

4. these two banksy articles. This one on Slate and this one on Salon.

5. This truth-is-stranger-than-fiction story about a teenager who forged a Shakespeare play in England in 1795 and it was made into a play and totally busted because it sucked. It's a sweet article. It's at

Now the video goods: The Chi doin big thangs in their homage to Chicken Noodle Soup, shown below.

you're welcome.

Dear TR,

They're eating chicken wings on the dance-floor, how playa is that mang?

I love that she's wearing Stan Smith's in the very beginning!

That's how I roll.

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

He may have a randy wang, but he's about the only guy who can make a Wall Street Executive squirm under oath.

More Classy Behavior From Goldman Sachs

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

It was awesome how their PR person said that the backlash against them was due to anti-semitism.

I guess I'm that kind of old-timey racist that dislikes when financial behemoths give their wealthiest clients information that they don't give to other clients. Does that make me intolerant of other cultures, like the culture of greed? Sadly, yes.

I'm T.R. Slyder, and that's how you Tangueray.

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

A Goldman Sachs attorney got his "solicit a 15 year old for sex" on.

No word yet on how the cookies tasted in Chris Hansen's living room.

I'm T.R. Slyder, and that's how you Tangueray.

Two More Articles on Goldman Sachs

By: T.R. Slyder,

1. 10 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to the Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, asking him to explain why the let Goldman gamble with taxpayer money.

2. Will holding Goldman Sachs' feet to the fire be the first stop for the Elliot Spitzer comeback train?

I'm T.R. Slyder, and that's how you Tangueray.

Another Great Matt Taibi Article on Goldman Sachs

By: T.R. Slyder,

This time he's talking about Goldman's huge quarterly profits, and how they should be considered ill-gotten gains at best, and at worst, property of the US Government.

This article praises Taibbi's work and echos antitrust sentiment regarding Goldman.

update: This article about Goldman Sachs also makes some really interesting points. This one too.

Great PR Week for Goldman Sachs

By: T.R. Slyder,

First this convincing article that assert that Goldman Sachs is responsible for engineering and profiteering from every major financial bubble, and its subsequent bursting, since the depression.

Now it's top-secret trading algorithm has been purloined.

Good luck with all that, guys.
