Have you seen the trailer for the new Star Wars film? I wouldn't call myself a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise, but the trailer gave me goosebumps. I think it's going to be awesome.
Star Wars will flop. Today's generation not interested. DIS holds most of the cards now with Frozen and other items on deck.
I'm too busy rolling around in my piles of fresh money to post something coherent. When I stop giggling uncontrollably, I'll let you know.
Frozen appears to have been more of a problem than I had thought it might be.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Attention Shareholders: The SEC is now and has been, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Investment Banking Cartel.

It’s rare but it does happen. Employees of the largest audit firms do occasionally step up and blow the whistle on potentially illegal and/or unethical activities at their firm or its clients.
The Guardian writes about the whistleblower now formally charged in Luxemburg for leaking PwC’s copies of tax letter ruling documents:
A 28-year-old former PricewaterhouseCoopers auditor charged with theft and violating trade secrets in Luxembourg in the wake of the LuxLeaks tax avoidance scandal has revealed his identity and claimed he acted out of conviction, in an interview with the French newspaper Libération.
Antoine Deltour, who joined PwC from business school in 2008, resigned two years later. “Normally auditors are a bit like regulators. It is a useful profession, we verify the accounts of companies,” he told the newspaper. “But I wasn’t feeling at home in that environment [at PwC]. Bit by bit I discovered how extreme the system was in reality – it was a massive tax optimisation practice. I didn’t want to be part of that.”
The most interesting thing about Deltour’s admissions is that he believes he is not alone.
