INVESTING IN GOLD AND SILVER

October 22, 2009

I have been investing in precious metals for a few years now. I started to first read about the coming crash in Rich Dad’s Prophecy back in 2002. At that time, I didn’t really understand the magnitude of what Robert Kiyosaki was saying, but now it is all starting to fall into place. In March 2007, I bought my first precious metals!

Since that time I have ready MANY books about it, and here is a video that I filmed on October 21, 2009 about Gold and Silver. (Start the video at 1 minute.)

In May 2008, after I had bought my first commodity and read a LOT of books, I created a video on Silver Investing so that I could give my opinion on the matter!

As of this post, gold has hit a new all time high, and silver is still a GREAT buy at $17.64. Depending on your needs, you will pay a premium on the commodity you buy depending on how much you buy at once. If you are just looking for a few ounces, I would look into buying it at your local Coin Shop or on Amazon. (http://bit.ly/pruCP). You also may want to check Ebay to see what you can find on there, and that will give you a better market value of what silver is going for.

If you are looking to buy 500 ounces or more, one great website for buying and information is Tulving. Also for more news on Gold and Silver, I recommend Kitco.

If you are just getting started, as I stated in my first video at the top, you want to get yourself better educated. Here are a list of books for you to check out!

Rich Dad’s Advisors: Guide to Investing In Gold and Silver: Protect Your Financial Future

Crash Proof: How to Profit From the Coming Economic Collapse (Lynn Sonberg Books)

Updated version of Crash Proof:
Crash Proof 2.0: How to Profit From the Economic Collapse

The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments

The New Empire of Debt: The Rise and Fall of an Epic Financial Bubble

Rich Dad’s Prophecy: Why The Biggest Stock Market Crash in History is Still Coming…and How You Can Prepare Yourself and Profit From It!

The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures , Revised and Updated

Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably in the World’s Best Market

Gold: The Once and Future Money

These books should give you a good head start on where to go from here, and they will also give you a good understanding of what is happening and what is coming.

If you are looking for an iPhone or iPod Touch application to watch the precious metals market, I recommend the Gold Live application by Kitco! Here is my review on it.

You can download this app in the App store here, and it’s FREE!

LEGO ROCK BAND

October 14, 2009

Last night I was at my friend’s house to play some Rock Band 2 on XBOX 360, and he mentioned something about Lego Rock Band (pre-order now). This game is to be a more “family friendly” version of Rock Band, with more youth oriented songs.

Check out the Trailer below!

Judging by the Trailer, I seem skeptical about the game due to the “cheesiness” of the Lego people in Rock Band, and the song choice that they used for the trailer, so i took a look at the Song List for this game, and it just might be worth the money. (Links to Amazon)

“Accidentally In Love” Counting Crows

LaneVids on rock band 2 "funny rat"I have bolded the songs that i would really enjoy on this game. Knowing that for $9.99 I can export these songs to my HDD on my XBOX and play it with Rock Band 2 makes me ever more likely to buy it, unlike the Rock Band: Beatles game.

Plus, I can play with my AWESOME LaneVids Rock Band Character instead of the Lego characters.

Lego Rock Band is set to be released next month, so make sure to get your copy by pre-ordering it on Amazon! ROCK ON!
