GULF COAST DISTRACTIONS

(2PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

   Being Friday again, I`m here to try & keep the gulf coast on the minds of as many people as possible.

Lately I feel that the media is trying to give the gulf, the bum`s rush. We keep hearing about wrapping up the booming under the guise that booms do deteriorate. I can`t argue that, but let`s have new booms available & on hand, since this is hurricane season.

I will not be sold on wrapping up the gulf cleanup till they at least plug the well permanently, & keep monitoring the gulf for the next few years.

  Right now Bob Cavnar is speaking  on TV & mentioned the posters at Daily Kos, specifically the ones guiding everyone through this disaster  with the Mothership & it`s “Babies” (my qualifier)

He is also one of the people I listen to & believe, when I see him on the big TV machine, over any one else on their Propaganda machine.

  I normally post my images as distractions from all the travails of our daily lives in these trying times, but these are not to distract, but to point you towards what some would have you be distracted from. Please do not fall for that old ploy.

Even if the specimens I post do not all live in the gulf environment, they are the best I can post from these taken in my reef tanks.

  1. Have a great weekend.

    Remember, I try & respond to all questions/comments whether or not they pertain to the images.

    In fact I encourage you to comment or ask questions since it may keep the disaster in the gulf in the forefront of your mind, just behind all your possible daily grindings.

  2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are a master of color and light! You’ve outdone yourself with this series. I’m particularly fond of Giant Cup Mouth, that is outstanding! And Gulf Guardian, formidable!

    I can relate to Wrong Password, I woke up a couple of nights ago, in a cold sweat, thinking those exact words, WRONG PASSWORD!!. How about you?

    But my favorite is Twilight of the Gods, how appropriate as I’m sure the sea life and the shoreline inhabitants (including humans) in and along the Gulf feel very much as if this is their very own Götterdämmerung, Twilight of the Gods. The whole Gulf incident is becoming a Wagnerian conflagration, hell, the whole planet is becoming a Wagnerian conflagration, Ragnarök, if you will!! If your friend has not already named the subject of Twilight of the Gods, may I suggest Siegfried?

    Thank you, Knucklehead, you are a good man!

  3. They are all great, but, as usual, there are always a few that, perhaps for unknown reasons, particularly capture my attention.  

    “Reef Crest” is definitely one of those. I would surmise that very few of us have had the opportunity to view a natural coral reef and would imagine that in your tanks, you have some control over the arrangement of the coral, plants, etc. This is probably a rhetorical question, however, do coral reefs in their natural state look the same or are there slight differences?  

    Also, “Twilight of the Gods” and “Gulf Guardian” are quite striking.  “Gulf Guardian” looks as if it could be a painting.  Were special effects used, and if so, which ones?

    I’ll have a response to your comment on my essay in just a few minutes.

    Thanks again, Knuck!

    Hope you’re enjoying a great weekend!  

  4. i think i will steal the beating earth heart for posting somewhere.
