    • Interesting that Redford had a hand in bringing two of those three works to screen. He was in a movie version of Gatsby and directed River.

    • I regularly taught both books to my 12th and 13th graders in Germany.

    • To me, Sun Also Rises is so fucking good it almost defies description...ditto Fitz's Gatsby...

    • Oh, yes, it is a damn near perfect work of art. If I had written only one work and that was it, I could die knowing I had contributed.

      Hem's Sun Also Rises, Fitz's Great Gatsby are among my other favs that come to mind in that vein - works about style and much more.

    • you are missing a $12-$20+ dividend in there depending on how you payed it but it is no secret it acts like shit lately...does anyone really need a chart to tell 'em that? someone pointed it out a while ago but the comment went largely unnoticed but a lot of folks have been going long term on this lately and I imagine no shortage of those folks are availing themselves of the opportunity to take L/T profits in this name...we didnt pierce $20 until mid May last year, $30 until June some time and $40 was first seen in mid/late July...I think $10-$20 type buyers were value folks who tend to be very tax it wouldnt surprise me to see us churning through the folks who are going long term...if I am a trading sort I cant really see why you (meaning GH) would be contemplating going long...especially after our discussion last week about your emerging style...this seems totally counter to that...I also noted with interest you sale of NFLX...which is interesting given your lionizing comments of last week about the stock and company...

      • Absolutely. I believe there are a lot of folks who are totally thrilled to get 2x-3x LT cap gain and get out and that window is open to the earlier buyers now.

      • Style

        Charles Bukowksi

        Style is the answer to everything.
        Fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous day.
        To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without style.
        To do a dangerous thing with style, is what I call art.
        Bullfighting can be an art.
        Boxing can be an art.
        Loving can be an art.
        Opening a can of sardines can be an art.
        Not many have style.
        Not many can keep style.
        I have seen dogs with more style than men.
        Although not many dogs have style.
        Cats have it with abundance.

        When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun, that was style.
        For sometimes people give you style.
        Joan of Arc had style.
        John the Baptist.
        Garc�a Lorca.
        I have met men in jail with style.
        I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
        Style is a difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
        Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water, or you, walking
        out of the bathroom without seeing me.
