There's a lot of opportunities (if you know when to take them)

Another interesting tidbit from Clyde Jackman's announcement today concerning Artistic Fraud:
Recent CEDP funding approved for the arts sector is as follows:
  • $4,500 to Henge Production and Consulting Ltd., to assist in the development of a website focused on film and new media opportunities;
    Henge Production and Consulting?

    That would be henge.ca, Christopher Richardson, Executive Producer — a.k.a. hengedude, director of the entirely spontaneous, not at all contrived, self-styled Obama-esque YouTube video from back in November, which extolled the Virtue of Our Dear Premier and the Beauty and Entirely-Found Completely-Spontaneous Poeticism of His Excellent Words.

    Wally. you are so wrong about this one. As nauseating as it may be to you, Chris really was inspired and really did pull it off overnight. Yes, it was suck-up-ity, but nothing else. No conspiracy here, folks. Move along.

    Revered Esteemed Friend Peter!

    I am Ungabo de Rothschild of Nigerian branch of Rothschild Family.

    With recent sad passing of Baron Rothschild we are come into possession of lasting interest in Churchill Falls Power Plant.

    As you might be aware, the present civilian government has intensified their probe into our family's financial resources, which have lead to freezing of all our accounts and grounding of most of our businesses and the arrest of my son who is currently facing trial. In view of this, I withdrew some of our assets from one of our finance houses before it was shut and got some safely deposited to a security company in London with the help of some officials that are still friendly to the family.

    As you might be aware too there has been great surveillance on my movement which has been greatly restricted as currently, I am not allowed to leave the country, hence this proposal that you front for me and i will give direction for my Churchill Falls stock certificate to be released to you in person in Newfoundland. At this point, I have to make it clear that this transaction will be absolutely risk free as i have tidied up all loose ends.I Will give you details when i get a response from you.

    At the end of this transaction, you will get 25% of this stock while 70% will be for me. 5% of this sum will be set aside for any expenses that might be incurred by either party during the transaction, e.g. flight tickets,hotel bills etc. Please do make sure to keep all receipts intact. I will also be obliged if you can furnish me with possible options where i could invest my part of the money in your country for my consideration. For the purposes of this transaction, I have detailed my Lawyer, Ahmed Nosiru who is resident in London to act on my behalf because I can not reach you or be reached directly because of security reasons. Please should you decline this offer, I beg you to keep this a secret as my reputation and everything will be on the line. Also do not forget to include your telephone No and fax line for a more easy and direct reach.

    All I need now is your credit card number with expiry date and three-digit confirmation code, and your bank account with transit number and branch identifier.

    Peter:

    But still, Peter, ya gotta admit, it is all rather sweet to pull off the suck-up coup of the century one minute (and be pretty nauseating about it too given the contrast between Obama and the Williams speech) and then shortly after nail four and a half K.

    I should try and see how easy it is to get into a Conservative Party fundraiser at the last minute.

    BTW, Peter, did anyone report that the speech was at a $500 a plate fundraiser for the party? I am genuinely asking since I can't recall.

    Seems to me people went out of their way to avoid noting that the whole thing was shot at a Conservative Party fundraiser, which of course would be entirely different than a speech say to the local Rotary club.

    Yeah. I need to see how easy it is to get into ANY DW speech at the last minute and shoot video of him.
