  • Remember all those capital injections by U.S. sovereign wealth funds into financial institutions way back when?

  • How's the mood in those circles these days?

  • Anyone else miss the Critter's Choice Awards?

  • Is this song an inevitable element of my immediate future?

  • Who will win our First Annual MVHQ Karaoke Award tonight?
