Oh how I wish I had saved his email to me from who knows where in Africa; hitchhiking his way for over a year from south to north, living in a room in a brothel at that time, recovering from malaria (2nd time), his past Peace Corps partner just recently faked his identity...

Good time Mr. Tuna Can, if in fact that is your real name.





Diligence pays. The official email received, circa 2005... I am not sure if I am more embarrassed for Chris, or me.


EDIT: No, that was a different email, that was something from Weej. "Asparagus, the Lesotho Office, and How I Won the War". That is correct now. Never did meet him, but what a nut.

I wish I could find the one about the hookers on the train...




"Well, well, well...

Been a little naughty have we?

I woke up to monkeys flying out of my butt and realized this would be the day that I would hear you were ok...

I was a trifle concerned.

In the course of man's ever failing attempt to bridge that which cannot be bridged; to fail what cannot be failed; to chase that which is plaid...

dost the sun only rise but once? Nay I say... And feces to those that say it was all but a lie.

Of the many tales I tell, there is but one tail that forsaketh me not. Clad in plaid. Clad, in plaid...



Neither I nor my Gaelic half-brother Minky, (who, by the way, is fraught with much anger and rage), are worthy to sip from the cup which is your constant battle for circumcision.

There may be men who dream of gold and riches untold. There may be men who wish for fame or wisdom. Ah, but I say, it is he who knoweth no life. His is a bitter battle; an ongoing war with the spares being nothing but incontinence. A fleeting gas...



Are we not but of worms, scabs and mealy bugs in the end?

Are we destined for greatness and given the Divine hammer? (can't touch this...)

I think, so it is so.




My friend, it is with great pleasure and warmness of soul that I call you a friend. The bonds that a just and true friendship make can span the width of a galaxy, the breadth of a universe. And only miles are miles... Separation is only an idea hewn forth from the untrusting and unknowing. For the true idea is found within...(all worms aside)

My eyes have seen it. My mind's eye has known it. As we are tossed to the great wrestling mat that is life, I am in constant thought, reveling in that which is good. That witch's hole.

A beautiful day at the beach marveling at the human experience. Consumated from the rock of trials and tribulation, gas powered watercraft and idiots who pilot them, fast moving dogs, binoculars, and a friendship that will forever stand the test of time.

It all turns and so does this rock. So intricate is the pattern woven upon each sole. Whether Nike, Adidas, Puma or Converse. So divine is the plaid when the light renders it just right...

Changed my mind on a long and then a short. I missed the open due to other calls and have no feel for anything yet. Gap up open, volume has not shown any support yet.

I am curious about how my thoughts progress from here due to the "performance anxiety". I have a decent week, decent day, been on the phone all morning and cannot focus on the market at all yet.


Ahah, and the scalp feels better...


So, rather than a long CONTINUATION trade, I want to catch the turmoil. It is quick. And therefore I take a lot of countertrend trades, and therefore am on the opposite side of Ryan quite often.... Yesterday as we talked, he was just waiting and waiting. That is great when nothing else is going on. It takes a more subtle monitoring of activity. But if I have moments here and there, I need something graphic and violent.


If it makes money, is there anything wrong with that?

TUT email of the day;


It's going to be bigger than you thought, you're going to be happier than you imagined, and your friends are all going to be like, "No-o-o-o way! That's so cool! How did you do it?"

Because, Gary, all earthly manifestations appear larger in real life than they do in one's mind. Way.

You are still visualizing, right?
The Universe

Per Ryan, you don't sell a flat VWAP




Very even distribution so far

You got it.....

A flat vwap becomes the middle and we then use the developing value extreemes
