Oarfish are supposed to be harbingers of doom. In folklore they are associated with massive imminent underwater quakes and tsunamis. If you see one of these sea serpents washed up on the shore – run for the hills. (Not really) Scientists have recently been warning about an imminent large quake in Socal. So naturally I moved back to Bakersfield. It is a city in the middle of a giant lakebed created by a large damn that will probably be compromised in a large quake.
Some fish aren’t water proof. If they get in the water they break out in hives and start sneezing and leaking. They are forced to spend the majority of their short lifespan floating around the ocean on a float.
I love eye stalks. People should have them. This is an imaginary friendly blue fish with black stripes. He is happy and carefree. His stress level is minimal. He spends most of his time blowing bubbles, preening his scales, listening to top 40 music and spraying his rounded red fins with fast actin’ Tinactin. They turn red when he gets anglers fin.
Sharks are great talkers. They have great big gravely voices and they endlessly carry on about the past. Their favorite topic is the Great War. They love to discuss how life was in the trenches and how the expression over the top came from trench warfare. Shark talking to a tiny fish he is about to eat. Fish are friends not food. I can’t imagine why anybody would ever go into the ocean when real life monsters like this exist. You are putting yourself into the food chain.
You have to love Dr. Evil. He is such a good spoof of a typical Bond Villain. This is a picture of a Shark With Frikin Lasers Attached to his Head. Edit: gave the shark a smile because you have to frikin smile when firing a laser and also added a laser radiation sticker to emphasize what it is.
Silly fish what do you have to be depressed about? You don’t even have a mortgage. You swim around all day eating bugs, pooping and listening to the sound of water flowing through the seaweed. Take your meds.
Moby Dick is probably the most famous American novel. It is about an egomaniacal whaling captain and his rabid pursuit of a giant white whale as told by a guy named Ishmael. It is considered to be one of the best books ever written about the sea. As with all great art it has had many generations of critics pouring on layers of meaning and symbolism. And it is held in far higher esteem and has enjoyed far more success in the 20th and 21st century than it ever did in Herman Melville’s time.It is amazing to me how critics and professors are actually the people who create great art by agreeing to work together to shape public opinion with generations of analysis and interpretation. They are carving out a job for themselves by worshiping some dead collection of ornate, convoluted and impenetrable words that some guy wrote a long time ago. To me the whale represents chaos, the certainty of death and other stuff. Prove me wrong. Give me a well crafted and easy to read and grok novel written by Hemingway any day.
Happy red fish jumping out of the water to eat a glowing bug. This is a symbol for the Demiurge consuming the creative life force of humanity. Gnostic Theory is so interesting and creative. It reads like a science fiction novel where gods are aliens in parallel dimensions controlling human reality behind the scenes. It is far more interesting than the stale mythology of the big three religions. The water represents another dimension that the red fish has crossed out of to consume a glowing bug that represents an original thought. (mischievous smile)
Green fish with purple fins and pink eyes. They get pink eye from gnats and when they put their fins in their eyes too much on hot summer days. It makes them miserable because it hurts. Fish have a notoriously low threshold for pain.
