  1. Unsurprisingly, watched a Jimi Hendrix documentary on the flight home. Jimi's legendary appearance at Monterey International Pop Festival was featured, and a guy named Lou Adler was the festival's organizer. Any relation? He sort of looked like that old avatar picture of "you" as Alfred.....
  2. Two pals & I played Chez Wayne’s inaugural Fete de la Musique the year it opened. Across the way from Palais de la Justice. That was over three decades ago. Man… where’s the time go? Meanwhile, sitting on a plane waiting to taxi & fly home. Croatia is a spectacular country to visit. May I be fortunate to do so again some day.
  3. Bitxhcoin is so much more fetching with an 18-handle. Byotch gonna look stunning in 4 figures.
  4. I was riding my Schwinn Stingray around with pals, wondering how to secure $0.25 to buy a Marathon Bar.
  5. Jim Grant’s on crapvision in our hotel room as we mow room service after a long nutty day of dune-buggying into Herzegovina to visit a big cave. My eldest points at the TV, sees the characteristic bowtie, and says, “It’s Bill Nye, The Stock Market Guy!”
  6. Six months ago, separate friends of mine who know each other bought some residential real estate. We got into a four-way text conversation in March as rates crept up about the impact of rising rates on real estate. Did the basic math to calculate the erosion in financing power that the move from 2.5% to 3.5% or whatever had generated; and the difference between what loan/property someone might afford with an ability to spend $3k/month on a mortgage payment. Told ‘em prices must go lower. Fourth buddy agreed emphatically with basic math, but the other two insisted somehow magically purchasing power would prove robust & sticky. Didn’t matter for their small rental properties per se - although, their capital is definitely stuck at cost… indefinitely. It’s just an anecdote about people, capital, hope & math. Your chart is about people, capital, math & despair.

  8. I’m trying to hear sexual innuendo in everything said at Powell’s presser. It’s all subtle pillow talk.
