MV Classic Series: Random Acts of Mentations
All right! A clip show
This is a choice collection of Todd Harrison's random acts of mentation, published between October 2002 - June 2003.
Expiration action is typically seen in the days prior to the actual expiry. During the actual day, the opening and close are typically busy and everything else is drifty.
My favorite Minyanville tee is the faded blue athletic department shirt.
Crimson Tide was the best submarine movie ever.
You can lead a cow upstairs but not downstairs. Sucks for Hoofy!
I watched the new David Gilmour DVD three times last night-it's that good!
Bucky, Junior and JJ-comprise the best desk I've ever had the privilege of working on.
You are more likely to be killed by a champagne cork than a poisonous spider. Somebody tell Michael Jackson!
Blue Smoke Barbeque-it's tremendous!
A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. I can relate!
Why do I drink diet Pepsi with chocolate chip cookies?
The state of Vermont has produced twice as many presidents as hockey players.
Specialty Pharma is a can of worms!
I've learned a lot about myself through this column-what I want, who I am, where I'm going. I owe a big thanks to the readership for allowing me to do that.
Orange Mocha Frappacino!
In a reactive and thin environment, the big boys can-and do-push the tape around.
I never liked Ric Flair and I thought S.D "Special Delivery" Jones tried too hard to fit in.
I've used to have a secret crush on Mary Ann. There, I said it.
If you're bumming, read this quote by Raider Lincoln Kennedy "There is no more complaining and bitching like there was earlier. What we need to do is win. What happened to us is that we started to lose and we took it on the chin. To hell with pride. We got to show up and get back to doing what we do."
Minyanville loyalists are very protective of our critters and totally dig their style and honesty. That's awesome!
I just asked out loud what the remaining bubbles were in the market and Junior said "Hedge Funds." Thanks kid...but it was a rhetorical question.
I still think that The Four Season's has the best Grey Goose Apple Martinis in New York...and I think one's calling my name as we speak!
I'll say it again-you see someone's true colors when the chips are down.
There is a thin line between staying the course and being stubborn...and that's a question that each of us must answer for ourselves.
Take some time tonight and think about the Ruby wisdom from earlier: time is the most precious thing we have in life. Whether you lost, made or could have made more today, keep it in perspective. Tomorrow's a new day-but if you spend all night looking forward to it, you'll forfeit the time we have now. And that, my friends, would be a shame.
Tony made some excellent points on his CNNfn gig. Man...it must be tough being that smart AND that good looking!
If you took one pound of cobwebs and spread them out in one straight line, it will go around the earth two times.
A lot of my old school readers have communicated that they're frustrated and fed up with the market. Friends...it's not your fault! Some of the savviest people I know are closing up shop because it's too hard out there. Unfortunately, the weeding out process will continue until the industry overcapacity is alleviated--and we've got a long way to go. If you're going to stay in the game, know that it's going to be a long, hard road.
With that thought in mind, I'm quite aware that I'm starting a financial dot.com into the teeth of this bear. Still, I truly believe that Minyanville--through both education and philanthropic efforts-- will make a difference in people's lives.
My assistant just got a U.P.S package addressed to: Fokker. I kid you not!
Don Henley never got the respect he deserved as a solo artist
In Iceland, Domino's Pizza has reindeer sausage pie on it's menu. Eww!
I can't stop eating thes fantastic Brent & Sam's Minyanville Chocolate Chip Cookies....they're off the charts!
I think it may be time for the Toddo no-carb diet. Whenever I can't see my belt....it's time!
There will likely be days (perhaps weeks) in the years ahead when there's not a compelling risk/reward. Don't hold onto the handlebars so tight---you wont be in shape to trade 'em when you see 'em.
I think we should we should find a really great band, rent out a big space and have a party for all the citizens of Minyanville!
Jeff, Matt, Buck, Jr, JJ...and yes, you too Martin...I miss you guys. Hope you and the rest of the crew are smiling!
Yesterday, Greg R.N looked at me at 7am and said "I don't know what it is, boss, i just kinda feel like I'm a fog today." Uh...does anybody want to take this one for me?
Astronauts cannot belch--there is no gravity to separate liquid from gas in their stomachs.
49 countries. Wild, isn't it?
Raider Max and Pulitzer Emily...get fired up kids--it's the A.F.C Championship!
The next person says that Daisy looks like Michael Jackson will be banished from Minyanville!
