Elon Musk — Quick Trigger Capitalist

I am a huge fan of the core businessman Elon Musk. Not so much on him personally. Very skeptical on Tesla.

Having said that, I rise to applaud Elon Musk (I was going to call him “Elon” like he and I are pals, but we’re not) for being quick on the draw as it relates to using the current uptick in Tesla stock as a means to raise additional capital in a secondary offering.

The Fredo 2019

Big Red Car today announces a new award, The Fredo.

The Fredo is awarded annually to the individual who best exemplifies the character of Frederico “Fredo” Corleone in Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather.

In case you have been overseas for a long time (maybe living in Ukraine working for Burisma) or residing in a cave, Fredo was the older brother of Michael Corleone (the smart one played against type by Robert De Niro). Fredo was played by John Cazale in the Francis Ford Coppola adaption of Puzo’s book.

In particular, Fredo appeared in Godfather Part II.

Is this the smart play?

Tesla Talk – Elon Musk

The Big Red Car is a fan of Tesla, the idea of a new kind of electric car is exciting. It has been a “thing” for a decade. The BRC is, however, skeptical of the leadership of Tesla, specifically Elon Musk.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk smoking a perfectly legal joint while being interviewed by Joe Rogan for a podcast. Rogan offered the joint to Musk after saying he had rolled the weed in tobacco leaves. Asked how often he partakes, Musk said, “Almost never.” Prior to this, Musk and Rogan had been chatting while enjoying some Old Camp on the rocks. They discussed expensive cars, watches, the dangers of artificial intelligence, space travel, terra-farming on Mars, and weed. The interview started at 9:30 PM and lasted until 12:15 AM.

Is it possible to be a fan of a product and a skeptic of a company? Concerned about the stability of a CEO? Apparently.

Several odd things have caught my Big Red eye.
