Wolverine The Musical

Well, because we all heard Les Misérables. Now it’s time for a twist!

Mixing reel with real, what do you think it would be to have our dear Huge Jackman to sing Wolverine The Musical, through Les Misérables.

i’m sure the lyrics are written by him. Or at least someone who thought what Wolverine would be going through.

All in the name of fun! 🙂

The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom

The Five People You Meet in Heaven
The Five People You Meet in Heaven

 

Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination, but an answer.

In heaven, five people explain your life to you. Some you knew, others may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie’s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his “meaningless” life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: “Why was I here?”

Mitchell David Albom is an author, journalist, screenwriter, playwright, radio and television broadcaster and musician. His books have collectively sold over 35 million copies worldwide; have been published in forty-one territories and in forty-two languages around the world; and have been made into Emmy Award-winning and critically-acclaimed television movies.

Pigeon flying down the highway with cars!

Saw this video on YouTube that was posted recently.

Can you imagine a pigeon flying down a highway along with moving vehicles?

Yep, ALONG with MOVING vehicles!

What do you think that pigeon is trying to do?? Rather, what do you think is on its pea-size brain?

Seriously!

Though i gotta say, the conversation betweent the 2 men who filmed this wasn’t interesting at all.. 😦

Posting video on BooksAvenue.co is a way to share and keep in touch with my readers.

Well, it is a way to bookmark it too!

I guess i will continue to do so when there are nice videos. ^ ^

Cute penguins puzzled by rope and trip.

This is almost similar to a group of kids. Unsure and unknown of their surroundings and their own physical abilities/limitations.

It is damn hilarious to watch them observing and scrutinising the rope. And then trying to cross over. Some got caught, panicked and struggled frantically over a harmless piece of rope tied across them.

I can imagine the conversation goes something like this…

“?”

“???????”

“???????????????”

First penguin, “No fear! What is this to me?”

Struts forward proudly and faceground.

“!!!!!!!”

“!!!!!!!!!!”

Second bird, “okays….maybe i go slow then”

“Slow and stea…..What?! NO!? It caught my leggg!!” *struggles and faceground too.

The rest of birds are alarmed after which, and approach with greater caution.

HHAHA such an adorable video!

Watch for 1:17. the reaction is priceless!

Though it’s cute, who ever tied and filmed this is surely an jackass! haha!

Warren Buffett’s advice on Ukraine

Image

Warren Buffett says wartime is a bad time to be holding cash. Photo: Bloomberg

 

US markets closed lower overnight, with the benchmark S&P 500 down 0.74 per cent. That may have something to do with the fact that Russian soldiers have boots on the ground on Ukrainian soil in what appears to be a volatile, unpredictable situation. The Russian rouble fell to a record low against the dollar today and the RTS Cash Index of Russian stocks was down sharply.
These are the sort of headlines that can cause many investors to act rashly and in a manner contrary to their long-term interests.

Taking a deep breath
Thankfully, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett offered some much-needed perspective from someone who bought his first stock in 1942 (“I will tell you the macro factors were not looking good!”).

Unruffled by the news out of Ukraine, Buffett is actually buying a stock this morning – and he likes it better today than he did on Friday:
“When I got up this morning, I actually looked at a stock on the computer that trades in London that we’re buying and it’s down and I felt good. … It was an English stock. … I had a price limit on it and we were buying it on Friday, but it’s cheaper this morning and that’s good news,” Buffett said on US cable channel CNBC overnight.

What about war?
What of the potential threat of World War III or a return to the Cold War, countered CNBC’s Becky Quick?
Buffett responded: “If you tell me all of that’s going to happen, I will still be buying the stock. You’re going to invest your money in something over time. The one thing you can be quite sure of is if we went into some very major war, the value of money would go down – that’s happened in virtually every war that I’m aware of. The last thing you’d want to do is hold money during a war.”

The ‘safety’ of cash
So if you don’t want to hold cash, what do you want to own?
“You might want to own a farm, you might want to own an apartment house, you might want to own securities.
“During World War II, the stock market advanced — the stock market is going to advance over time. American businesses are going to be worth more money, dollars are going to be worth less, so that money won’t buy you quite as much

“But you’re going to be a lot better off owning productive assets over the next 50 years, than you will be owning pieces of paper.”

Foolish takeaway
The farm analogy is one Buffett warmed to in his recently released letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. He was warning against exactly the sort of short-termism that is now gripping investors in the face of possible trouble in Ukraine:

“Forming macro opinions or listening to the macro or market predictions of others is a waste of time. Indeed, it is dangerous because it may blur your vision of the facts that are truly important”

Oh, and before you are tempted to think ‘yes, but it’s different this time’, that comment comes out every time.

And the result? It rarely – if ever – is

New business concept at BooksAvenue?

Business has been good. We thank all for your continuous support!

Currently we are considering to bring in other products to cater to our online readers. Some ideas were thrown around last Friday when we sat down to brainstorm. The list is as follows:

 

  • Stationeries
  • Office related items such as shoe wax, cufflinks and etc. 
  • Splash art
  • Art pieces

And we are still contemplating on other novelty ideas that may suit the theme.

Having said that, it does not mean that we are giving up on what we do from the start. We will continue to bring in fresh titles, hand picked by our founders.
