Kong vs Kraken!

Filed Under: 

The new trailer for Kong: Skull Island just dropped, and it gave me a very pleasant surprise. Check it out at one minute and 51 seconds in. Blink, and you will miss all the lovely, lovely tentacles.


O.R.k. - Soul of an Octopus

Filed Under: 

Available now for pre-order is Soul of an Octopus - the sophomore release by O.R.k.  It all sounds like noise to me, but if it's your kind of noise you should check it out. I gather that if you are the kind of person who likes this sort of thing, then you might like it.


No Valentine's Day Blind Date

Filed Under: 

According to The Seattle PI, this year's annual Valentine's Day blind date for two giant Pacific octopodes will not take place -- for the second year in a row. Usually it is a romantic event where visotors to the Seattle Aquarium look on while a male and a female octopus are paired up in the hopes that they will mate. Last year the event was cancelled out of fear that the very large and aggressive male might just eat the much smaller female instead of mating with her. This year the cancellation is for a much happier reason:  Raspberry, the female selected for this year's event, was found to be already fertilized. So instead of being part of a sixteen-tentacled live sex show, she is going to be released into Puget Sound today at noon Pacific time. The release will be streamed live on the Seattle Aquarium's website if you want to watch.

"That there's some pure evil you kids unleashed, and it ain't gonna stop killin' until it gets what it wants."
"And, what DOES it want?"
"To keep killin'!"


Kitten Loves Octopus

Filed Under: 

So my wife and are watching The Santa Clarita Diet, when a character mentions a YouTube video about a kitten and an octopus. You know I had to look that up.
