The Asshole  In-Formerly Known as Printz 

(The Artist Known as WilliamBanzai7 December 31, 2012)


I was dreamin' when I wrote this

Forgive me if it goes astray

But when I woke up this mornin'

Coulda sworn it was Fiscal Cliff judgment day

The S&P was purple and the Reuters screen was gray,

There was busted Bankstas runnin' everywhere

Tryin' to run from the destruction,

U know I didn't even care


say say

Dow headed down to zero

Wall Street Ponzi party over, oops out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1929


I was dreamin' when I wrote this

So sue me if I go to fast

But Wall Street life is just a Ponzi, and Ponzi weren't meant to last

QE profits all around us, my trading mind says prepare for flight

So if we gotta die lets go and hang Bernank and Geithner tonight...


say say

Dow headed down to zero--

Wall Street Ponzi party over, oops out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1929


Lemme tell ya somethin'

If U didn't come to party,

don't bother knockin' on the money Printz's door

Ink's leaking holes in his pockets,

and baby he's ready to roll some dough

Yeah, everybody's got an unhedged bomb,

we could all blow any day

But before we let that happen,

We'll dance our Keynesian lives away


Oh, they say say Wall Street Ponzi party over,

oops out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1929


say say DOW headed down to zero ponzi party over,

oops out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1929

we gonna, oww 1929

Dont ya wanna go 1929

Dont ya wanna go 1929

Dont ya wanna go 1929





QE 1929

Austin is a good place to party…………

The capital is stinking in oil wealth tax income…………

But its not a nice place for Santa.


Santa is a American ?

Perhaps Coca Cola gave him his slip.

"O- yea...

At the Fed a littlle bearded man died of a fiscal policy with a little name, by chance his girlfriend at the ECB came accross a printer and soon she did the same,

At home there were 17 year old boys and there idea of fun, was being in a gang called the Federal Reserve, high on toner catridges, toting an Epson laserjet, proofing a full-color $5t print run.



(Sorry, coudn't resist the Printz)


A capable ZH New Year, one and all

This one is fantastic Will. I love the colors on the rainy street. There was a Terminal Bar in Wilmington, DE that got torn down around the era of this picture.


Happy New Year to you and everyone at ZH.

yeah i long for the old days of film stock. but someone is probably working on a app right now, to adjust your digital photo to the desired color balance and graininess of any of the old brand name film stocks. i esp like the old travelogue footage done on kodak (rip) film.

Sorry, the international copyright management on utube is impossible to cut through. It's Princes 1999. Try googling it in another browser tab.

1929 was 2007.  1930 is today (5 years later).  1932 was rock bottom.  1936 things started to pick up again.


What took 6 months back then now takes four years.  With all this technology and government spending, things have gotten slower.


So what took 2 years back then may take 16 years now - and that's just on the down slide.


Thanks for caring Ben and Barry.

Thank you Mr. Bill for more credible and informative information in one of your artistic posts, than what is found in a year of blabbity bullshirt from the lamest stream media channels of evil lies and dis/mis-information horsewash tripe and spewed scum bucket slime.:

May it actually be a Happy New Year for ALL...and not the last one for a country once called America.

that photo was taken in Zuckerbergs den at the same time as that famous kitchen photo. all the old schoolers are hanging out at the bar, under the ersatz picasso mural. BB: they're drinking MD in the kitchen, let's break out the scotch. LB: I don't know if this is scotch but it's the right color HP: I've got some really fine weed in this envelope

29 was the year the stock market crashed, but the depression didn't begin in earnest for a year or two at least. (it's a bit like the Mayan calendar, everyone is saying so what? well wait a year) money will not disappear but confidence in the cash will, and then hyperinflation sets in. they're already talking about milk being $6 a gallon. but take a tip from Al Greenspan and use a substitute, like chicken for beef, use goats milk for cows milk. (WHIP inflation one more time) goats are ideal for the family farm. just not sure how to substitute for paper products, which have to be manufactured. oh wait, yeah, those dirty greenbacks are going on the outhouse wall. see there are a few silver linings and here's hoping you have lots of them in 2013..

Happy new year mate. You are certainly one of the few who made the 2012 tolerable, so many thanks. I look forward to viewing & reading more of your sharp wit and hysterical satire of which I'm sure there will be many in 2013. All the  best to everyone.

It is 1929 in more ways than one, just no outhouses or family farm to go home to, no root cellar, and no well.

A Happy New Year and may 2013 see Ben and his printing press meet reality!
