With its release on DVD closing in, we thought it was a good time to take a look at Magic Mike XXL and how jock strapped hunks diving, grinding, flipping and dry humping can be great entertainment.
Magic Mike XXL takes place three years after the original and broadens its scope in a lot of ways. As opposed to a small story about a group of male dancers at an oddly shy strip club, we get a slightly bigger cast and a tale of gorgeous men driving to South Carolina to compete at a stripper convention. While we prefer the intimacy of the original, we can’t deny not having a good time with this sequel. The road trip itself minimizes the possibility of stage dancing, but we get lots of hip swiveling in minimarts and around power tools in a shed. It’s all glorious and sweaty, with a pumping soundtrack. There are even a few flat out musical numbers, courtesy of new cast members Donald Glover and Matt Bomer.
While the movie may initially come across as fluffy and commercial, the truth is the script is intermittently brilliant. Screenwriter Reid Carolin has taken the elements of a life where one uses their body to make money to highlight our individual ability to find and appreciate beauty for its own sake. The movie sees how we use our bodies in many ways to bring pleasure, yet not letting us forget there are personalities behind them. After seeing the film, there is plenty to talk about besides thongs and abs, including subjects like gender politics and mixed races in the New South.
We credit the film’s exuberance to the game cast. With Channing Tatum leading the pack, everyone’s putting it out there to get us shimmying in our chairs. Besides eye candy like Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez, there’s Glover, Bomer and “So You Think You Can Dance” star Twitch. Familiar faces like Jada Pinkett-Smith, Andie McDowell and Elizabeth Banks show up. We especially like Crystal Hunt in the role of Lauren. A former soap opera actress with a huge Facebook following, Hunt also appeared in “Problem Child 2,” “Sydney White,” “23 Blast” and the video for “N.Y.C. Underground.” We hope to see more of her and soon.
Overall, we think Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL will make for a great double feature on the couch.
Poor Kyle Bass, he just keeps making one bad decision after another. For those who aren’t familiar with him, he made a fortune for his direction and writing on The Sixth Sense. He was thought of as a genius at first, but oh how the tides have turned. It’s not only the bad calls that he has made, but it is also his unsavory alliances that have got him in trouble.
Cristina Fernández de Kirchner
Nobody is sure why Bass is friends with Kirchner. She is called the worst thing that has ever happened to the country of Argentina. Don’t let Bass hear anyone say that, he sings her praises. When her country defaulted on their debts for the second time in 13 years, Bass defended her. Some say he is her lackey or minion. Bass has a good relationship with her and has supported her preposterously irresponsible policies. She has ripped off her own people and he still defends her.
Business ties to the American Sniper are also of a valid concern. His widow is in the middle of a big lawsuit against one of the subordinates to Bass at Hayman. The man has been accused of all sorts of unethical behavior. This guy has also come up with a plan that is vile in nature. Both houses in congress are working on an overtime plan to close the loopholes caused by him. The scheme is too easy and rather troublesome. It involves Erich Spangenberg. They pick out specific pharmaceutical firms and then they take their stocks and short sell them.
Once the stocks have been short sold, they created a front organization made up of patients they pay. It’s called the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. The reason for this group is that they make the stocks of the prescription company go way down. In return, Bass rakes in a few million. The pharmaceutical companies’ prices go through the roof, but their motivation to continue medical research plummets. Millions of people who need those firm’s products to help with pain and suffering are sold short so Bass can make some money.
Kyle Bass has had a hard time getting things right these days. According to reports, he lost 30% of his money in 2014 due to hedge fund managers. Even Bass himself admits that he had a tough year, but he says that you cannot win them all of the time. He liked the salt from his wounds when he stated that it’s hard to loose when everyone else is winning. This could be the motivation behind the pharmacy scandal and maybe why he’s sucking up to Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Argentina has a great deal of oil and where there’s oil, there’s money.

While gold is still much in play, it is still a solid hedge against inflation and deflation, as well as a perfect vehicle for monetary growth. One factor regarding growth is that most people who invest in precious metals understand the correct timing to do so. Without a proper understanding for timing the markets, any investment, including gold, will become devalued very quickly.
In many cases, people claim a substantial stake in gold or some other precious metal, only to lose substantially in the end. And the problem with their investment wasn’t in the purchasing of gold, it was in the timing. Many people purchase gold, and don’t understand the various nuances that make up rises and drops in the gold market. It goes well beyond the rudimentary understanding of the raising of stocks and bonds in relation to gold. There are many other factors that need to be considered and evaluated when purchasing gold for an investment purpose.
For instance, people are not aware that there will be a significant bear rally within the next 3 to 6 months. How is this important? Here is the simple answer in a nutshell: when this bear rally occurs, it will combine with a slowdown in the selling of gold on the general markets. Gold has been selling rapidly over the last year and a half, especially to foreign interests like China and Russia. When this heavy buying subsides, it will trigger the prices of gold to go up. During this time, over a 6 to 9 month period, the price of gold is expected to rise anywhere from 10% to 30%. Within the next year, it will not be uncommon to see gold at the price of $1100-$1300 per ounce.
So how does one get involved in becoming a part of the gold rush? One of the things that a individual must have is an expert in gold dealings. The people at US Money Reserve have an extensive amount of time with individuals looking to invest in gold. They have a number of different departments, with over 100 expert individuals giving advice in gold management, gold purchasing, appraisals and more.
The people at US Money Preserve have been in the gold acquisition business for years, and can tell a person firsthand the best options for them to continue on with their investing goals. Gold coins remain one of the best physical investments in gold that you can make, and the experts at US Money Reserve know what their customers want, and offer quality products that they can partake of.
