The Trojan Global Income fund

A new fund! A new fund! A new fund! 'Yippee!' / Uh, I suppose we all remember James Harries, don't we? 'Who could forget him, boss?!' Ha!

You see, uh, there's a picture of him, on a website, and ... well, he's just a blue man, from head to toe. He doesn't have any, er, features, you know? No hair, eyes, mouth, nose. His hands and feet look a bit dodgy, too, and - 'The dirty bastard doesn't even have any clothes on, Mikey!' Oh, come on! [Don't judge him!] 'And his head is round like a football!' Yes, yes ... and he's running towards an open door. [Why?!?! Desperate to escape?] Jesus! I mean, that's the picture. [Don't blame me!] 'Is he a thought-form from the astral plane?' Er ... it's not impossible.

Well, things are going ... well for Jimmy at Troy Asset Management because they've given him a new fund to manage, the Trojan Global Income fund. And I take my hat off to him, you know? 'He's done well. Well, for a cartoon character. Or a thought-form.' Yes, Voice. This proves that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Well, well ... / The fund will be launched next month. It will focus on global businesses. 'How many stocks will it hold, boss?' Somewhere between thirty and fifty. 'Nice.'

I'm sure it's going to be a great success. 'It doesn't matter that he's all blue with no features, like.' It's not a problem, man. Troy chose our Jimmy for his skills and knowledge. They don't care what he looks like. Cartoon character or thought-form on the astral plane, no one gives a shit. The bottom line is: can he make money? 'Of course he can!' Yeah. Everything's going to be all right.


Anything else? Music? I'm listening to that Suede album again, their debut. There's not a bad song on it. Oh, which makes me think ... 'What?! What do you think, Mikey?' Well, the best time to record a classic album is with your first album, man. Not enough artists take advantage of this fact. 'Because you have years before you get a deal to write and refine.' Yes, exactly. But later ... well, you've got to tour, and the pressure is on, and you have a much better lifestyle, and maybe you're more "satisfied", and ... your writing suffers, maybe, in most cases, I should think, yeah? 'It was the same with The Strokes and The Stone Roses.' Yeah.

Of course, Bowie didn't have this problem. He kicked ass for a whole decade. What a legend!

Oh, oh, oh ... I can't believe I found this on YouTube last night. I've been dreaming of this for years, but didn't even know that it existed. I knew there was rehearsal stuff, but not a live performance. 'What, Mikey?!' David Bowie performing Station to Station in front of an audience, and dressed as the thin white duke, and in 1976!!! 'Wow!'
