Freedom is becoming a thing of the past

[The small freedom we have ...]

Mainly due to governments bringing in dodgy new laws all the time, but also employers with their shenanigans, and society in general with its general bullshit.

Why is this happening?

Well, the world is obviously collapsing, and the people in power want to hold on as long as possible.

The good news is ... I mean, just look at the dinosaurs ... powerful beasts go down just as easily as weak beasts.

The end is coming.

The cosmos will survive though. People with high consciousness will be all right, even though they won't be "people" any more.

Bodies restrict freedom better than anything.

Pure spirit is what you need!

The arrogance of human beings is ridiculous. Does your average person ever try to see an animal's point of view?

Last week, I was having my lunch on a bench in Richmond when a lovely little robin landed near me and watched me eat my sandwich. I tried to see things from his or her point of view. Most people wouldn't dream of doing that. They would just eat their sandwich like a fucking pig.

It's the dolphins I really wonder about though. They don't have arms or legs. They can't walk on the earth and operate machinery, but I suspect that they have very high consciousness ness nesses. Yes, very high. Are they disgusted by human behaviour? Do they think that humans are wankers? Or losers?

Religious people and atheists are going to get one hell of a shock after death. There is an afterlife, but it is nothing that a regular human being could imagine.

It's entirely possible that dolphins will be in superior positions after death. I mean, superior to humans. And the sick people who kill dolphins are going to get the shit kicked out of them. In a cosmic sense, of course. The dolphins won't be wearing boots. They don't have legs, do they?

Good night.

My laptop has put me in a really bad mood this morning ...

Well, actually, I'm okay now. I was just really pissed off with it for a while. It was messing me about, you dig? I think it's got a mind of its own.

Anyway ... I'm not doing a PR email. Maybe some of you will be glad to hear that ... ? The ones who hate finance and only come here for the dizzy life. Well, I'll be doing a conceptual later.

'Who would only come here for the dizzy life, boss?'

Er ... kooks, oddballs.

'I love those guys!'

Yeah, yeah.

Anyway, what should I write about?

I'm really pushing myself on the diet and exercise now. I want to make faster progress. Being realistic, if I keep doing what I'm doing ... I think I'll be where I want to be by the end of January next year.

I want to buy some more clothes. I want jeans, BUT(!) ... it doesn't make sense to get them yet until I know what size I'm going to be.

Sunspel are sending me more emails than ever. Their polo shirts are on sale again. I'll think about it. But they won't leave me alone.

'They know you're the King of Cool, Mikey. They're just trying to help.'

Yeah, yeah.

I had some crazy dreams last night. Not musical ones. I want musical ones, man!

That lovely tune for Love Is Such a Dream came to me while I was just strumming some chords. Shame it's not a BIG TUNE, you know? Never mind.

Mighty Soul and Life and Death are far above my other songs - musically, like. That's what I need! Two more tunes of that quality.

This has been a crazy morning with the laptop and the bloody noise outside!!!, BUT(!) ... I think I'm getting better at pushing through the chaos of life. That thing Aristotle Onassis said about the sea and wind and shit is one of the greatest things ever. And I said some great stuff about Waterloo, too, didn't I?

'What did you say about Waterloo?'

The battle, Voice. All the smoke and bullets and no one knows what is happening and who's winning or losing - until it's all over. That's how I feel writing songs. It's madness.

There is no peace. And life becomes less peaceful as you go through it. That's the truth.

Laters.

Invitation

I ain't going to Sweden!

'You don't have to go to Sweden, boss.'

Well, I'm just saying, Voice ... I ain't going.

'But you don't have to go!'

Who says I don't have to go?

'They do.'

Who?!

'The people who invited you.'

Yeah, so they want me to go, idiot! They want me to be there.

'But it's online, idiot!'

Don't call me an idiot.

'Look -'

Anything else?

Fitness? I'm doing one hundred push-ups today, and one hundred dumbbell curls. Depending on how I feel afterwards ... I could do this five days a week from now on. Let's see how it goes, and how I feel, you dig?

I was eating a lot of snacks at the weekend. Why? 'You're greedy!' No. I'm restarting my strict diet today.

I've made a lot of progress this year with weight loss and muscle gain, BUT(!) ... I don't look like Steve McQueen yet. So I must keep going! / Daniel Craig had the same idea as me, before me. It's a great idea!

Music? I will rewrite the lyric for Love Is Such a Dream at some point, BUT(!) ... it's not going to be one of my BIG TEN. Alas, it's just a supporting song. Never mind. These things happen, man.

My demo? Oh, I don't know. I really want to finish the lyrics for Life and Death and And Rain Came Down soon.

And I need two more big tunes. Where will they come from ... the abyss, or the sky profound? 'The sky profound, I should think, Mikey.' Well, that's where they normally come from, Voice. I've just got to be patient.

Christmas? Frankly, it can't come soon enough. I need a rest. 'Do you need mince pies?' Er ... I might treat myself to one box of chocolates, but I'm not going to overdo it. A couple of cans of Kronenbourg. Some cheese, crackers, and pickled onions. I'm not going to ruin myself.

Anyway ...

Later(s), kook(s)!

Thursday, 25 November 2021

This is the last post of the week

It's just a shame it's not the last post of the year because I want a rest.

I've finished Love Is Such a Dream, but I'm not sure I like it now. I hate it when this happens. Maybe I should leave it for a week or two.

At least I have these eight songs -

Mighty Soul
Life and Death
And Rain Came Down
Nothing
This World Don't Mean a Thing
Malibu
Stella
What's This Life We Live?

Only two to go for my BIG TEN!

I'll get them, kook(s), don't worry. I'm on a sacred mission.

Listen! I'm not in the depths of despair or anything. I know that the artistic life is a shitshow most of the time.

It's very difficult to produce anything worthwhile.

Francis Bacon destroyed loads of his paintings, and hated loads that he didn't destroy.

Picasso didn't destroy any of his stuff. He just kept churning out art of all kinds of quality, from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Does anyone want to listen to Dylan's Apple Suckling Tree ... ?!

No, I thought not.

Anyway, it's dark now ... I'm going to put Avalon on.

See you next week! 

Refinitiv Lipper: European fund flow report - October 2021

Okay, okay.

I've got to edit it to look like the old PR emails. Never mind.

Anyway ...

Long-term mutual funds (+€49.2 bn) posted net inflows for October 2021.
Money market products (+€66.9 bn) posted net inflows for October 2021.
The overall fund flows for mutual funds and ETFs in Europe in October amounted to estimated net inflows of €116.0 bn.
Money market funds (+€67.0 bn) were the best-selling asset type overall for October 2021.
Equity Global (+€12.9 bn) was once again the best-selling sector among longterm funds.
Ireland (+€34.8 bn) was the fund domicile with the highest net inflows, followed by France (+€32.4 bn) and Luxembourg (+€28.0 bn).
BlackRock (+€18.3 bn) was the best-selling fund promoter in Europe for October, ahead of Amundi (+€12.5 bn), and JPMorgan (+€9.7 bn).

Detlef? Is there anything you want to say? 'Ha! Detlef always wants to say something, boss. Just you try shutting him up.'

Come on then ...

Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv Lipper, comments: "Inflows into money market products boosted the fund flows for October 2021, while European investors were in general further in a risk-on mode over the course of the month. Given the general market environment it was no surprise that October 2021 was a positive month for the European fund industry since mutual fund (+€105.5 bn) and ETF (+€10.6 bn) promoters enjoyed inflows. The overall flow pattern in Europe showed that investors continued to be in risk-on mode in October even as the general flow pattern was driven by inflows into money market products."

All right. Thank you, Detlef.

...

Anything else? Music?

Here's my BIG TEN ... er, minus one -

Mighty Soul
Life and Death
Love Is Such a Dream
And Rain Came Down
Nothing
This World Don't Mean a Thing
Malibu
Stella
What's This Life We Live?

I'm leaving The Future and Good Times out of it because I'm confident I'll be able to write another really "great" song soon.

Love Is Such a Dream is the shortest and simplest song on that list, BUT(!) ... it sounds like a total classic. It deserves to be in third place. I doubt I'll play it to anyone though until I've signed a publishing deal. Man, it's better than Here, There and Everywhere. It's more like Sam Cooke's version of Summertime, and it will be covered hundreds of times by other artists. Oh yes, you read it here first. Mark my words. Watch this space. Etc, etc.

Listen! The real test of a BIG TEN - in my mind, like, yes - is ... how "great" are the bottom three or four songs? Well, I'm happy to report: I'm in Beatles territory, beyond Oasis and U2.

And here's the Beatles list again -

A Day In The Life
Let It Be
Hey Jude
Yesterday
Strawberry Fields Forever
I Am The Walrus
The Long and Winding Road
Eleanor Rigby
Something
Penny Lane

You dig?

Bye!

Pfaffikon

What?! I mean ... what on earth?! WTF?! Etc, etc. 'Boss, come on, stop messing around.' Ha, ha, ha! I'm not messing around, Voice. 'Yes you are.'

'I'll do it kooks ...'

Pfäffikon, Switzerland, 17 November 2021 - Global Investment firm Carlyle (NASDAQ: CG) today announced that it has agreed to acquire AutoForm AG ("AutoForm"), the global leader in engineering software for sheet metal forming simulation, primarily used in the automotive industry, from global private equity firm Astorg. Details of the transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals, are not being disclosed.

'You see? It's just a harmless PR email.' Yeah, yeah.

 Oh ... no details are being disclosed. Does this mean ... ???

'The short answer, boss? ... No!' Oh. Shame.

'We have voices!' Yippee.

'Olly? Come on, son!'

Olivier Leteurtre, CEO of AutoForm, says: "We thank Astorg for the successful partnership and their outstanding involvement in Autoform's transformation. We are excited to welcome Carlyle as our new partner. Their extensive understanding of the automotive industry and a breadth of experience in scaling vertical software companies will provide significant support to AutoForm's growth plan, driving the business to consolidate its leading position in sheet metal forming and BiW assembly, globally."

'Nice one! / Benny?'

Benjamin Deshayes, Managing Director leading Technology for the Carlyle Europe Partners advisory team, says: "We have long been attracted to AutoForm's highly differentiated solutions and continuous performance track record. We believe its deeply rooted culture of innovation through sustained R&D investments is a distinctive attribute that positions the Company very well for future growth. This acquisition underpins our strategic commitment to the European technology sector, and we look forward to partnering with Olly and the AutoForm team, leveraging our significant expertise and global network."

'Thanks! / Er ... Waldemar?'

Dr. Waldemar Kubli, Founder of AutoForm, says: "Carlyle will be a great partner to support AutoForm in the next phase of its development. I am thankful for the support provided by Astorg and for the role they played in organizing the management transition I wanted for the business and for which I chose them 5 years ago."

'Five years ago?! Fair enough. / Joel?'

Joël Lacourte, Managing Partner at Astorg and Benoit Ficheur, Partner concludes: "We are proud to have partnered with the AutoForm team, supporting the development and launch of the new BiW assembly solution through a meaningful acceleration of the company's R&D expenditure, reflecting our long-term shareholder perspective. AutoForm is uniquely positioned to support the automotive industry in the light-weighting and electrification of future cars. Given the quality of the team in place and the clear strategy, we are confident that AutoForm will continue on its strong growth trajectory with the support of their new shareholders."

'Okay, okay. Thank you, guys. I hope -' That's enough, Voice. 'But -' Get your own blog.

Unbelievable.

I can't get the staff.

I don't want the staff.

All I wanna do is play me guitar. Do you know what I mean?

...

Anything else? Music?

My new song has boosted my songwriting confidence even further. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish the lyric this week. I don't want it dragging on for months, man. It's like something Paul McCartney used to write in The Beatles. Not Yesterday. Not as great as that, BUT(!) ... the level of Here, There and Everywhere ... I would say, yes. Love Is Such a Dream is the same length as that song, faster pace though, and the lyric isn't as "positive" - I'm not a total mug.

Anyway ...

Let's keep on poppin' in the free world!

Laters.
