they come in, I say,

"Until things turn around,

avoid it

like the fuckin' plague. "

The smart money right now

is in portfolio management.

- Is that right?

- I want you to take my card.

Look at that.

Oh, man, that is a card.

I want you to call me.

Well, thanks, man,

I appreciate that.

- You gonna call me?

- Sure.

All right, I'm gonna

get outta here.

Oh.

I got another round coming.

I'm hydrated, I gotta go.

Listen, if you,

if you don't want

any more to drink,

you know maybe umm,

you guys wanna smoke outside?

A little four-twenty?

Truth is, the

most prevalent thing

that came out of

a day like today is:

at any moment,

that could have been

any one of us in that pine box.

Yeah, man.

That's why you have

to live in the moment.

Like that preacher said, if the

opportunity presents itself,

do not hesitate.

Amen to that, my brother.

Hey, you guys ever

hear of Bidexco?

Bidexco?

Yeah, it's a

pharmaceutical company,

small startup, some

guys at my firm,

we helped them raise capital.

Why are you asking

about Bidexco?

Well, my cousin works for this

large accounting firm,

you know,

too large to take Bidexco

on as a client, so,

he helps them out

on the weekends

and they put all

their cash right back

into research so

instead of paying him,

they just issue him stock.

I hate to break

it to your buddy,

but, you should

tell him it's probably

not worth the paper

it's written on.

Well, maybe.

Or maybe he overheard

a researcher talking.

About a breakthrough.

A month before FDA approval.

And since he'd

been doing all this

under the table, he

put all the shares

in this account, in

this trust account,

under a fictitious name.

And now he's

starting to freak out

and he wants

to sell the shares.

What's he asking?

Robert Lowell

Robert Traill Spence Lowell IV (; March 1, 1917 – September 12, 1977) was an American poet. He was born into a Boston Brahmin family that could trace its origins back to the Mayflower. His family, past and present, were important subjects in his poetry. Growing up in Boston also informed his poems, which were frequently set in Boston and the New England region. The literary scholar Paula Hayes believes that Lowell mythologized New England, particularly in his early work.Lowell stated, "The poets who most directly influenced me ... were Allen Tate, Elizabeth Bishop, and William Carlos Williams. An unlikely combination! ... but you can see that Bishop is a sort of bridge between Tate's formalism and Williams's informal art." Lowell was capable of writing both formal, metered verse as well as free verse; his verse in some poems from Life Studies and Notebook fell somewhere in between metered and free verse. After the publication of his 1959 book Life Studies, which won the 1960 National Book Award and "featured a new emphasis on intense, uninhibited discussion of personal, family, and psychological struggles," he was considered an important part of the confessional poetry movement. However, much of Lowell's work, which often combined the public with the personal, did not conform to a typical "confessional poetry" model. Instead, Lowell worked in a number of distinctive stylistic modes and forms over the course of his career.He was appointed the sixth Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, where he served from 1947 until 1948. In addition to winning the National Book Award, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1947 and 1974, the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977, and a National Institute of Arts and Letters Award in 1947. He is "widely considered one of the most important American poets of the postwar era." His biographer Paul Mariani called him "the poet-historian of our time" and "the last of [America's] influential public poets." more…
