Al Gore & Current TV Coming Public (CRTM)

From 24/7 Wall Street:

An IPO filing came in today from a company called Current Media, Inc. The filing shows for a sale of up to $100 million in securities, although this number is merely for filing purposes. The sole book runner is JPMorgan, Lehman Brothers is listed as Joint-Lead manager, and Pacific Crest Securities is a co-manager. Current has applied for the stock ticker"CRTM" on NASDAQ.

Current is the Al Gore-backed global participatory media company that democratizes media by engaging, informing and enriching our young adult audience AND encouraging their participation across platforms.

"For the Love of Money" "Money, money,"

Here's Liza's Money

And Floyd's

From Monty Python:
I've got ninety thousand pounds in my pyjamas.
I've got forty thousand French francs in my fridge.
I've got lots of lovely lire.
Now the Deutschmark's getting dearer,
And my dollar bills would buy the Brooklyn Bridge.

There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as cash.
Some people say it's folly,
But I'd rather have the lolly.
With money you can make a splash.

There is nothing quite as wonderful as money....

Also from the O'Jays, "Love Train":
* Love Train, The O'Jays:
...Start a love train (love ride), love train
The next stop that we make will be soon
Tell all the folks in Russia, and China, too
Don't you know that it's time to get on board...
