You all thought I was being funny referencing Frankenstein, didn't you.

Diabolical creatures + a shrinking habitat + high technology =


It's not just a bad SciFi Channel movie any longer. En plus, once the water wars commence & a Joint Chiefs of golf clubbing retirees & their private army march across the fruited plains to steal our precious Lake Erie, we can use these killer electric aquatic vertebrae with scales for good, scare the Ben Gay right off their desiccated gooseflesh & then we get drunk on that sweet, sweet H20.

Keep watching the seas!

P.S. Apologies (not really) for the lamer-than-usual (not really) air of recent electrons. Not a single solitary hardware store, big box, technobabble shack, head shop or apothecary seems to carry a USB cable that fits my camera's oddball jack, so until that arrives via post, instead of pretty (not really) pictures, more meaningless verbiage, plus ça change, et ceteroony, neighborino.

Oh you can't fool us Graves. We know that this was just an escapee from Ray's lobster tank.

Randal Graves said...

charles, what's our vector, Victor?

demeur, Famous Ray's only uses the finest, all-natural ingredients.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Have you no shame? Promoting Ray's Catch of the Day now, are we?



okjimm said...

per Tengrain..."Shame" wasn't that a a Western with Alan Ladd? I heard the sequel is coming, with Glen Beck...."Have you no Shame."

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, don't be projecting the shame of your poorly-honed palate here, bub.

okjimm, I am sick and tired of everyone bagging on America's Foremost Performance Artist.

No, Dude, "Giant Shark Vs. Flying Squid." You had the double horror of a shark that could leap out of the water (no it wasn't on "Happy Days"), and snatch 747s out of the air, and Debbie Gibson acting!

Tom Harper said...

What kind of lame-ass science fiction movie is that? Every sci-fi/horror picture is required to have the following 2 sentences:

"I've never seen anything like it!"

"We don't know what we're up against!"

Both are missing. Thumbs down.

It's not just a bad SciFi Channel movie

I'm insulted, there are no bad Sci-Fi channel movies that enough big boobs and fine and shapely booties can't fix.

Tricia Helfer and Grace Park are the only reasons I watched Battlestar.

Demeur said...

Tom you forgot:

"I just have to get in there for a closer look."

While you were out looking for UB40 equipment, you didn't happen to notice if any of those outlets carried that machine thingy that converts urine into potable water?

If there are going to be water wars, I want to be prepared.

I bet Kevin Costner is happy that he can now be vindicated that Water Worlds was not a bad movie but rather a genius act of prediction.

okjimm said...

//(not really)//...... I only counted 3 not realies.... wouldn't good sci-fi have at least really really a dozen or so? I mean, for this post to really really hold water?

Heh, always like an opportunity to quote the great HP:

'It is written on the brick cylinders of Kadatheron that the beings of Ib were in hue as green as the lake and the mists that rise above it; that they had bulging eyes, pouting, flabby lips, and curious ears, and were without voice. It is also written that they descended one night from the moon in a mist; they and the vast still lake and grey stone city Ib. However this may be, it is certain that they worshipped a sea-green stone idol chiselled in the likeness of Bokrug, the great water-lizard; before which they danced horribly when the moon was gibbous.'

Randal Graves said...

cormac, isn't that the flick with the now-legendary Debbie Gibson/Tiffany catfight?

tom, have you seen Frankenfish? Of course not, brilliant art scares the uncultured masses, hmph, etc.

BB, I've never seen Battlestar, but if I had a legion of sci-fi readers, you would have just given them a collective aneurysm.

demeur, have you thought about being a writer for Troma?

lisa, 'bout time red, red wine has more uses than as a disinfectant and getting blitzed.

LBR, and given how expensive this is gonna be, Waterworld's now the epitome of bargain.

okjimm, not really.

susan, I'm hoping that such aquatic Dagonery and Cthulhuiana will result in a religion for *all* of mankind, an eschatology worth giving a crap about.
