Newton and Hannibal, the shoe aftermath. Maybe with a cameo of gottlieb since they're all part of the neural handshake with a kaiju club.

Newt has spent most of the past twenty four hours convinced he is going to die. 

It’s not an off base assumption, all things considered. So it’s a rather cruel joke that when he finally feels calm, the doors slam open and Hannibal Chau comes limping into the shatterdome, the tips of his gold shoe rattling like the spurs on a cowboy’s boots. Newt barely manages to fall over his own feet before Gottleib steadies him. 

“Where the fuck is my shoe?” Hannibal demands.

“You smell God awful,” Newt blurts out. 

“Yeah because I’ve been inside a Kaiju fetus for twelve hours. My shoe.”

“I don’t—”

“For gods sake give the man his shoe,” Gottlieb hisses.

“I don’t have it!”

Hannibal strides over and Newt almost goes fetal himself. If he had been eaten by a Kaiju of any size, he’s pretty sure he’d be dead from shock or at least have shit his pants. But Hannibal just looks like he wants him dead. The big man comes close enough for Newt to feel his breath on his face and pulls off his sunglasses showing the mangled flesh of his eye. 

“Get. My. Shoe.” he growls. 

“Yes, right away,” Gottleib says stepping in, “it’s being cleaned as we speak. If you’ll just follow me this way…"

Newt is about to sink in his chair when he realizes that Hannibal has been eaten by a baby Kaiju. His eyes widen and he scrambles up before taking after them. 

“How did you get out of the Kaiju—”

The knife misses him by centimeters. 

NO CARTER, THERE IS NO SANTA CLAUS...

…but there is always a creditor committee at the end of the day.  I’m not sure who will be representing whom but in regard to a creditor committee for Greece (in the old days we used to call it an advisory committee, but then it was all banks) and the join up of White & Case and Allen & Overy has a long history of working together representing either the creditors or the obligors.  It would be a natural.

On the other side, I think you will find Lazard who have been working with the Greek government (whatever that may be at the time) for a while and if I were a betting man, counsel will undoubtably be Cleary, Gottleib, Steen & Hamilton.

This is going to be a rather a fun thing to watch.  The law firms are absolutely first class and the best in the business at this sort of thing.  I do not know Blackstone in regard to sovereign debt (trading and investing is not the same as restructuring) if it is to be them  and my impression of Lazard after a few past dealings with them is that from time to time their Gaelic approach–we call it ego–is a bit too much in the forefront, this being the Paris bunch that is involved here.  Then again, times and people change.  But not at Cleary.  The crew that has been working on sovereign debt issues aince the early 1980ies will be involved.  They are very, very good.

I’m going to hold to my original forecast and bet we get through Christmas and into the new year.  No one wants to formalize an action such as this at this time of year in Europe and the Greeks have enough money to get through the next few months.  However, there seems to be no question that the die has been cast and early in the first quarter the proceedings will begin.  In the mean time, I’m sure you have noted the continued slide in the Euro; firmly below 1.29 today and the erosion of M-1 across all of Europe with the Greeks announcing the decline of bank deposits of over 4% I believe in October which I am sure is continuing.  Liquidity is drying up and more and more is the realization that what was achieved last week was a farce.  The failure to recognize or to admit to what was a credit event and a structural shift has been to exacerbate the problem and to create a monstrous liquidity problem as well.  For the Greeks, there is no way out.

Thanks, Carter.  I was an author in need of a subject.

Alternatively, Adam Gottleib,
in “Peyote and Other Psychoactive Cacti” has this to say: “The Indians…
believe that if one’s heart is pure, the bitterness will not be tasted.
Many have found that by not cringing from the taste, but rather letting
one’s sesnses plunge directly into the center of the bitterness, a
sort of separation from the offensive flavor is experienced. One is
aware of the bitterness, but it no longer disturbs him…It is not a
difficult trick, but it takes some mental discipline.”

Malaika to replace Karan on 'Jhalak...' as judge

New Delhi, Aug 28 (IANS) Actress-producer Malaika Arora Khan says she is looking forward to stepping into filmmaker Karan Johar’s shoes as one of the judges of the celebrity dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded”.


Malaika will soon be seen on the panel with her co-judges Lauren Gottleib, Ganesh Hegde and Shahid Kapoor.

Excited about judging the show that is hosted by Manish Paul, Malaika said that she is “really looking forward to step into Karan’s shoes and enjoy some spectacular performances along with Shahid and the other judges”.

“I worship dance and hold it in high regard. I have sampled some awesome performances on this season of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ and not to mention, some great entertainment by Karan and Shahid,” she added in a statement.

Karan, who has been on the judging panel on the show from the last four years, will announce his exit this week.

Lauren will showcase a contemporary dance performance on Karan’s favourite song “Lag jaa gale” as a tribute on behalf of the entire Jhalak team.


“This season of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ has been really exciting with its refreshing look and feel combined with the mind blowing performances by our new brigade of talented contestants and choreographers,” Karan said.

“However, owing to my film commitments, I am unable to be a part of the season till the end. Shahid has been my partner-in-crime this season; we shared great chemistry which has made this season fun and entertaining for the viewers.

"A special shout out to Lauren Gottleib, Ganesh Hegde and Manish Paul for adding lots of oomph, excitement and making this one of the most entertaining seasons,” he added.
