Invaluable Life Advice From Tracy Jordan. You’re Welcome.

enhanced 6787 1416283608 1 300x182 Invaluable Life Advice From Tracy Jordan. Youre Welcome. This post is for all of you people out there who won’t shut up about scuba diving. Happened upon this beautiful piece from Buzzfeed today, and given the seriously stupendous bum steer we have going on here, I was compelled to share. Not all of it is poppycock, however, as I truly believe we should live every week like it’s Shark Week (and drink all the Shark Week themed cocktails, at that). Enjoy these other nuggets of information and have a nice belly-laugh. Apologies as not all of them are fish/reef/ocean related, but seriously, back that ass up and make me a sandwich! And what exactly DOES go on in those Japanese game shows? On another note, I hope Mr. Morgan is recovering well after his unfortunate accident earlier this year. I also hope is octopus is still going along, being his awesome octopussy-self. enhanced 1526 1416282623 2 150x150 Invaluable Life Advice From Tracy Jordan.

“Baby, It’s Creepier, When you Get Deeper”

 Couldn’t have said it better myself. Check out this flippin’ hilarious video from the folks over at College Humor, giving us a pretty impressive breakdown of what to expect from the deepest, darkest crevices of the sea. The darling spoof on Sebastian’s little number from “The Little Mermaid” is wickedly honest about just how fugly some of those deep-sea species can be. Even their given names don’t try to sugarcoat anything – “hagfish” and “blobfish” – “repulsive freaks”! I can sort of relate to the Hatchetfish, with eyes “translucent and devoid of soul”. Personally, I find all these creatures delightfully fascinating, hideous as they are. Although, “giant spider crabs” sound like something I never want to encounter.

In Bizarre Aquarium Crime News: Two Men Jailed Over a Fish

250px Astronotus ocellatus In Bizarre Aquarium Crime News: Two Men Jailed Over a FishAnd not even a cool one! I’m honestly having a difficult time wrapping my head around this story. After this past weekend of having the opportunity to lay peepers on some of the most highly sought after saltwater gems in the industry – I’m talking Clarions, Personatus Angels and a Peppermints,  to name a few – I can’t understand why someone would go through such lengths for an Oscar. Then again, freshwater has never really done it for me.… More:

Baby/Juvenile Smooth Trunkfish, Rhinesomus triqueter

Good evening friends, what a day!! Sorry about the late blog  but yours truly has been very busy!! Yesterday after posting the blog Aimee called and begged me to come over to Dolphin Academy with my dive gear and help the trainers do underwater repairs to the dolphin lagoons. Because of this crazy wind we are getting monster waves which are causing damage to our underwater dolphin living areas. What we did in a nutshell was to lift giant rocks back into place and tie many of them down with ropes. The waves were rolling in so hard at times we couldn’t see the hand in front of your face with all the bubbling whitewater, it was actually kind of funny and I found myself laughing to myself more than once!

Funny Fish Friday – Man Swallowed Whole on Basketball Court!

 Here’s a little bit of entertainment for my favorite Reefers! “Mackeral Jordan” (hehe) hit the court during a NCAA Women’s Basketball game between the University of Connecticut and Notre Dame (old news I know – this is 2010, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it). Guess the big guy was a tad hungry because he totally housed a dude during a break, and then proceeded to disrobe the man. I guess that’s the equivalent of tying a cherry stem in a knot to a fish? Anyway, the now scantily clad gentleman managed to make a miraculous, albeit embarrassing, escape dressed only in his skivvies and shoes.… More:
