Something Old and Something Old.

So everyone is making a big deal about the reunion of Pink Floyd with their earlier creative powerhouse Roger Waters who left the band in the early 80's after The Wall. What has this amounted to? At the Live 8 concert in London Waters strummed his bass through a few old Floyd tunes while David Gilmore did his best Water’s vocal impersonation singing the songs. I wonder about the current musical climate when we have a culture that is so consumed by past glory that a bunch of kids who only know Floyd from that poster with the naked chicks and some stoned out Wizard of Oz thing or light show at the planetarium are creaming their respective pants over something that just wasn’t that great.

Musicians have one simple job if they do it well they make quite a large amount of money. To put on good shows, with good energy behind the performance at the very least and that was a lack luster one at best. Who knows maybe because it was a charity thing. I also noticed that Paul phoned in the na nas by going from The Long and Winding Road into the closing part of Hey Jude.

And there is certainly nothing artistic about playing the same songs. New product is required, a vibrant dynamic process of creation and recreation. When The Pixies got back together they did a full on tour but still no new material. Time will tell for both. If Floyd goes back into the studio as a full complement and works on new stuff and gets that going then that will be cool.

Socrates: (in Greek) So you see, our lives are but specks of dust falling through the fingers of time.
Bill: How's it going? I'm Bill, this is Ted. We're from the future.
Socrates: Socrates…hmmm.
Ted: Now what?
Bill: I dunno, philosophize with him.
Ted: All we are is dust in the wind, dude.
Bill: (picks up some dirt out of a pan) Dust. (makes a motion with his hand to mean wind) Wind.
Ted: (points at Socrates) Dude.
Socrates: (in Greek) Yes, like sands of the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Well excuse-e-moi
but i am a musician, and we wouldn't play songs from the past if it wasn't for the publid adoration for them.
Although you may not have enjoyed the past songs of Floyd at their concert, I am certainly sure that many others did.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
