Fraudclosure Before Christmas (Banzai7 Halloween Countdown Saturday Edition)

(Jack's Lament, The Nitemare Before Christmas)


There are few who'd deny,

at what I do I am the best

For my talents are renowned far and wide

When it came to surprises of the monetary type

I exceled without ever even trying

With the slightest little effort of my fractional reserve charms

I have seen global investors give a shriek!

With the wave of my hand,

and a well-placed groan

I have cut interest rates and swept the very bravest bankers off their feet!

Yet year after year, it was the same routine

And I grew so weary of the sound of bubbly dreams

And I, Maestro, the Leverage King

Have grown so tired of the same old market capitalist thing

Oh, somewhere deep inside of the economy

An emptiness began to grow

There was something else out there,

far from my Chicagoan home

A longing that I've never known

I'm a master of risk,

and a demon of market sleight

And I'll scare you right out of your trading pants!

To a guy in Kentucky,

I was Mister unlucky

But now I'm known as the financial Bill Buckner of an ill fated September nite

And since I was with the Fed,

I could take off my head

To recite Keynesian quotations 

No banksta nor PhD could babble like I could

With the opacity of my recitations

But who here would ever understand

That the Leverage King with the Randian grin

Would tire of his crown, if they only understood

He'd give it all up if he only could

Oh, there's an empty place in my bones

That calls out for more unknown unknowns

The fame and notoriety that will come through the years

Does nothing for these empty central banksta's tears...






(Oogie Boogie Man, Nitemare Before Christmas)

Well, well, well, what have we here?
“Screwless” Ken Lewis, huh?
Oh, I’m really scared
So you’re the BAC Nin Com Poop everybody’s talkin’ about, ha, ha, ha

You’re jokin’, you’re jokin’
I can’t believe my eyes
You’re jokin’ me, you gotta be
This can’t be the right guy
He’s stupid, he’s ugly
I don’t know which is worse
I might just split a seam now
If I don’t die laughing first

When Mr. Oogie Boogie BAILOUT BOOGIE MAN says
There’s bad bank bailout trouble close at hand
You’d better pay attention now
‘Cause I’m the Oogie Boogie Bailout Boogie Man
And if you aren’t shakin’
Then there’s something very wrong
‘Cause this may be the last time now
That you hear the oogie boogie bad bank bailout song, ohhh





Ohhh, he’s the Oogie Bailout Boooooogie Man!

Well if I’m feelin’ antsy
And there’s nothin’ much to do
I might just cook a special batch
Of Level III snake and bonus stew
And don’t ya know the one thing
That would make it work so nice?
A roly-poly Charlotte CEO to add a little spice


Oh, yeah



Oh, yeah, I’m (he’s) the Oogie the Bailout Boogie Man

Release me now
Or you must face the dire consequences
The BAC Board is expecting me
So please, come to your senses

You’re jokin’, you’re jokin’
I can’t believe my ears
Would someone shut Mr numb nuts up
I’m drownin’ in my tears

It’s funny, I’m laughing
You really are too much
And now, with your permission
I’m going to do my subprime boogie stuff

What are you going to do?

I’m gonna do the best I can

Oh, the sound of rollin’ subprime bust up dice
To me is music in the ear
‘Cause I’m a gamblin’ subprime Boogie Man
Although I don’t play fair!

It’s much more fun, I must confess
When Banksta jobs are on the line
Not mine, of course, but yours, old boy
Now that’d be just fine

Release me fast or you will have to
Answer for this heinous bailout act

Oh, brother, you’re something
You put me in a spin
You aren’t comprehending
The tenuous position
That you’re in
It’s hopeless, you’re finished
You haven’t got a prayer.
‘Cause I’m Mr. Oogie  Bailout Boogie Man
And you ain’t going nowhere!

Oogie Boogie





Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Subprime Halloween

This is Subprime Halloween, this is Halloween

Borrower’s scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna get reamed tonight

It's our town, everybody scream

In this town of Subprime Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed

Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under yours stairs

Fingers swindling like snakes and fee spiders in my hair

This is Subprime Halloween, this is Subprime Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call subprime home

Everyone hail to the subprime song

In this town, don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next banksta toxic surprise

Round that corner, banker hiding in the toxic trash

Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll..

Scream! This is subprime Halloween
Red 'n' black, slimy green

Aren't you scared?

Well, that's just fine

Say it once, say it twice

Take a chance and roll the subprime dice

Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everbody scream

In our town of subprime Halloween!

I am the HFT clown with the tear-away face

Here in a flash crash and gone without a trace

I am the "counterparty fool" when you call, "Who's there?"

I am the derivative wind blowing through your ass clown hair

I am the Keynesian shadow on the moon at night

Filling your dreams to the brim with Keynesian fright

This is Subprime Halloween, this is Subprime Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

CDO tranches everywhere

Life's no fun without a good synthetic CDO scare

That's our job, but we're not mean

In our town of Subprime Halloween

In this town

Don't we love it now?

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back

And scream like a fraudclosure banshee

Make you jump out of your overpriced McMansion tract

This is subprime Halloween, everyone scream

Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man jack is King of the fraudclosure pig sty

Everyone hail to the Fraudclosure King

This is Subprime Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the fraudclosure song

La la-la la, Subprime Halloween! Subprime Halloween! [Repeat]

Ah yes ...... Tim Burton's next nightmare already exists and it is called the SEC --- quite fitting William.


Happy Halloween ...... and tomorrow when the markets re-open, we will resume the horror all over again.

Tedious waste of bandwidth. Someone should stop this idiot.

williambanzai7's picture

Each of us has his or her own unique way of squandering precious bandwidth.

I see you have mastered yours Mr Cretin.

Cruel Aid's picture

It is this one to be specific. Real good. Not unlike your artistic musings.

Yes, they are all good. I saw them a few years ago with Martin Barre returning. Note for note. Rundgren backed them up.

I would see Ian solo, he's got stories. He is two for one funny.'s picture

F L U T E    ing tried it liked it but didn't purrrrr    sue it.

Cruel Aid's picture

Stand Up. Record #2 I believe. Their first few records were kick ass less commercial.

williambanzai7's picture

Thick as a Brick and Passion Play were my favorites. I have all their music.

Anderson still makes great music.'s picture

Cruel Aid's picture

Dead Bank's Ponzi (To Oingo Boingo Dead Man's Party)

Fraudclosure debt is ready to blow
Walkin' with a dead bank over my shoulder

Waiting for investigations to arrive
Goin' to a ponzi where no bank's still alive

I was struck by scheming
Walkin' down Wall street
I was hit by scamming last night in my sleep
It's a dead bank's ponzi
Where they ask for more
Everybody's comin', leave your bad debt at the door
Leave your bad debt and bribes at the door . . .
(Don't run away it's just an AG)

Fiat failing one way to go
Walkin' with a dead bank
Waitin' for investigations to arrive
With a dead bank . . . Dead bank . . .

Got my best suit and my tie
Q E 2 comming printers gonna fry
I hear Big Benny comin' to explore
How much fiat banksters would adore  . . .


Don't run away it's just an AG
Don't be afraid of what you can't see
Don't run away it's just an AG . . .'s picture

willy B nilly, your sheer genius. i get you enjoy this celebration. i was afraid of the boogie man when i was young.

plus when i was really young, walking home from the sledding hill some man stopped me in his car and asked if i had seen his son, and wanted to show me his picture. so i looked in the car to view the photo and the damn man didn't have any clothes on. well i was right next to my home and ran in and told my mother. so the police came and asked me to describe him. what could i say ..... he was naked under his coat. well i was afraid to turn my back walking up our rather long and elegant set of old stairway to second floor. i was just afirad of the boogie man in general. i was just damn scared and really never looked into a man's car again. not so good out at night either.

Mozilo is not going trick or treating this Halloween. Mozilo already got his treat from the SEC.

The Mozilo Method: Rob, Get Caught, Cut Deal, Die Rich


The SEC is a great place to go trick or treating if you a millionare banker or billionaire Wall Street big shot. But if you are a small time investor or saver getting screwed by bankers and Wall Street and if you knock on the SEC door, SEC witch Mary Shapiro will throw a bucket of cold water on you and yell "Trick! little swinging dick. Now get the hell out of here before I give you high-frequency whacks of my broom".

Artist: 13th Floor Elevators Album: Easter Everywhere Title: She Lives (In A Time Of Her Own)

She lives, no fear
doubtless in everything she knows.
Through time unchecked,
the sureness of her flows.
She leaves herself inside you when she goes.
She lives in a time of her own.
You have always heard her speaking,
she's always been in your ear.
Her voice sounds a tone within you,
listen to the words you hear.
Her time has no past or future,
she lives everything she sees.
Her time doesn't spin outside here,
it's in every breath she breaths.
She lives in a time of her own.
Her love whips hard like wind and stands in eager pain.
She wins your thoughts and drives your inner planes.
She clears and shares a love that never strains.
She lives in a time of her own.
You have always heard her speaking,
she's always been in your ear.
Her voice sounds a tone within you,
listen to the words you hear.
Her time has no past or future,
she lives everything she sees.
Her time doesn't spin outside here,
it's in every breath she breaths.
She lives in a time of her own.
Her eyes like light reflect the aura of her hair.
She sends, attends, behind an alpha stare.
She seeks the stars and spirals up their stairs.
she lives in a time of her own.
she lives in a time of her own.
she lives in a time of her own.
she lives in a time of her own.'s picture

She Lives in a Time of Her Own
blindman's picture

dig c.  love that.  time of her own.  that is an introduction

to physics.  time.  /s.   the mind and the mind.  and gender.

love the treatment of light in that clip vid.  reversal but not?

here the guy at the heart of that stuff.



more stuff to hear.


there is a price and a payoff for having a money system.

to whom does it belong?  that is the question.  here the source of

the nightmare.

blindman's picture


 gene hackman.  love this.  poor "the monster".'s picture

it's     B L I N D  M A N


he found the light, though to expose the darkness.

that was funny.'s picture

blind eye who said white guyz can't play ka tar and dream at the same time?

funny we are on the same track, i saw somebody's baby and dr tor my I's in the sidebar on youtube and played them before opening your links. yeah somebody's baby 4 sure. not so much into the money system. kinda of don't care. tired of thinking and hoping about stupid money. it is sooooooo bor innnnnng. but your fun on the weekend. you seem to loosen up a bit. don't do nightmares and i now know i should absolutely not smoke weed say after 9PM cause i go paranoid scared etc. so no more weed until after i get drunk and almost pass out. why do you think my mind freaks so badly on weed?

blindman's picture


 don't know but it could be you are already of a state,

of mind, that need not be psychochemical reinforced

as the balance you seek is not "compatable" with the

effects brought on by the "weed".  chill and see if you can't find

some peyote.  then take a long chill.  or not.  detox with

fruit and vegetable juice is always a good thing.  and i swear

by inversion. (learn to properly stand on your head and shoulders,

special considerations for females must be adhered to.)

best to you as you are the best.  live it's picture

oh i did peyote  O N C E . remember it well. in early 70's before a julhro tull concert at red rocks, thought i was goin die. but didn't, of course.

oh i am a de toxed a farrrr   e   n .

fruits,    that helps with fiber release, if you know what i mean.

funny, i just started trusting my head and shoulder stands. cause of my right arm accident. got to get my knog gin back into shape.


no more female considerations lately ....... it's all good†
