Who is JDM or who should JDM be? #weekendfun


enjoy-capitalism

First, JDM’s motto is “provocative statements that intelligent people argue about for fun!”

I recently blew that opportunity at an event hosted by Ivan at the Jonathan Club.  Therefore, I am going to provide several ideas for future reference.

Provocative statements about JDM?

BALLER:  JDM has a group of amazing friends and their friends are titans of industry and of capitalism.

HUMBLE: JDM is really nobody, but I have amazing friends and their friends are extremely interesting and amazing!

BIG EGO:  JDM is trying to return to becoming an international playboy and enjoys doing moonshot and EBITDA deals.

PLAYBOY: JDM is trying to bring back the good things in life such as the two martini lunch.

CONCEPT: I am Spartacus, well oh dear Don Quixote (we are all Spartacus, Superman, Batman, and yes Don Quixote)


“Sometimes I like to think I am a person from a comic book or famous book, but my flaws are far greater than any hero.  I am Spartacus!  I am Superman, Batman, and yes Don Quixote” – J20.01.22.0700C

NOTE FROM HOST: I need to write a bigger check to Wiki and all the information sourced from Wiki or Google (says it is free and I trust Wiki, Google, and Facebook).  OMG/WTF – I need pages of disclosures to think!

SONG OF THE DAY: Kryptonite

RAW DATA DUMP (CONCEPT)

  • ALL HEROS = good, bad, and ugly
  • SUPERMAN
    • Good: 1938 comic hero to Smallville
    • Bad: Kryptonite
    • Ugly: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice = Superman as a hero is dead as long as there is Kryptonite
  • BATMAN
    • Good: Do we not have cool tools and can we be a real batman?
    • Bad: Nobody has access to toys like in the movie Batman or Ironman
    • Ugly: Kick-Ass says it all for the batman (gun = dead)

I am batman

  • OTHERS (TBA Don Quixote, Spartacus)

More to come soon in another posting!

I am Don Quixote,

#psbyjd What I learned today (or was reminded)


“Sometimes I like to think that I learned something new, but in reality, it was just friends giving me a nice push and reminder” – J20.01.22.1109P

“Thank you = John, Micheal, Richard, Daniel, Jeet, Omar, and all those amazing people that help me on my journey as I can see light at the end of the tunnel and it is a little brighter today.” – J20.01.22.1121

QUOTE OF THE DAY:  May those who love you love you; and those who don’t love you, may God turn their hearts.  And if He doesn’t turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so you’ll know them by their limping. – Irish Proverb (or wishing it was a universal truth = talked to a lot of good people and bad people today).

SONG OF THE DAY (Thanks Jeet)

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mold a new reality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart
Philosophers and plowmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart, yeah, oh
Whoa whoa
You can be the captain
And I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the…

What is driving Proposition 13 in CA (or thank you Vox Media / New York / Intelligencer /Ed Kilgore for great information) #psbyjd


“Wisdom is what the news calls madness” – J20.01.21.2100

This says it all CA

Section 1. (a) The maximum amount of any ad valorem tax on real property shall not exceed one percent (1%) of the full cash value of such property. The one percent (1%) tax to be collected by the counties and apportioned according to law to the districts within the counties. — California Constitution Article XIII A

YOUR HOST NOTES: Thank you “Vox Media / New York / Intelligencer/” does an article on proposition 13, we know it is national politics.  Thank you Vox Media!  Mr. Morris’ motto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!” My provocative statement is “Wisdom is what the news calls madness” – J20.01.21.2100 (except in many cases “New Yorker” and others).

REBLOG NEW YORKER

While this will mostly be a classic left-right, business–versus–unions and government battle, California’s progressive tilt doesn’t guarantee victory for split-roll. As noted above, corporate types will offer a slippery-slope claim that once the taxman has feasted on commercial property taxes, homeowners will inevitably be next. And there are some affordable-housing advocates who fear split-roll will perversely incentivize commercial real-estate development by making it a larger revenue generator for local governments.

Senators are bending the rules on cellphones

Considering the screen habits of most Americans, the rule that senators cannot use electronic devices in the chamber is going to be a tough one to adhere to during the grueling hours expected for the trial. As a workaround, at least eight senators so far have worn Apple Watches to be able to contact aides and the outside world. According to Roll Call, so far only one presidential hopeful has been seen with a loophole smartwatch: Michael Bennet.

Senators are opting for low-tech, middle-school solutions to get around the no-communication rule during the trial, including passing notes (Mike Lee), sharing candy (Ben Sasse), whispering to neighbors (Mark Warren and Tim Kaine), and pretending to punch a colleague in the chest (Lisa Murkowski to Lindsey Graham).

Happy Networking,

CONCEPT: Lunch Martini? Vodka Martini, Shaken, Not Stirred #psbyjd Do we need a new bond or old type bond or female bond like the old bond?


 

A woman used a 1980s trick to try to steal my male friend’s female date.  Times are a-changing!  I miss the old 007 and look forward to 007 to be reborn as we need martinis for lunch and dinner (breakfast martini vs. bloody Marry?).  So let us debate to following:

  • Would it be sexist if a man used this strategy on a woman’s female date?
  • Can we all be 007 (everyone)?
  • Should the next Bond be female like Dr. Who?
  • Should 007 M be female or male in the next movie (Head of the Secret Intelligence Service—also known as MI6)
  • Who should 007 M’s assistant be?

I hope we return back to the days of alpha being alpha regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, etc. = I look forward to the return of a martini for lunch (or 2 or 3)!

Thank you a 2020 “Phoebe Buffay” for the Shaken, Not Stirred “Double” Martini  for lunch vs. tea (they have cool teas)!  You are so cool and should be in the next 007 movies!

My motto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!” This is FUN!

#justforfun – Ying and Yang or my logo


REPOST:  The Hidden Meaning Behind Yin and Yang

Few ancient philosophies have been as influential as Taoism. Developed in the 4th century B.C., the philosophy is centered around the achievement of ‘the Way’ and finding harmony and balance within. At the heart of this philosophy is the symbol that has come to represent it as its most identifiable aspect: the Yin and Yang.

LOGO DESIGN (ROUGH DRAFT)

Working on a new logo and debating Coat of Arms vs. more ancient based on Ying and Yang.   This one is a Viking coast of arms (kinda)

Idea One:

Unicorn: We all love Unicorn deals

Dragon: We all want a return on our money

Moon: I love looking at moonshot deals

The Unicorn key, the moon key, and dragon key are all KEY to my life (ok sad pun)

Viking shield as I just found out that I am 49% Viking from DNA (Viking that invaded England).  ____ (Insert Viking Finance Joke Here)______.
