I am starting to feel like a ghoul for watching one of my favorite shows - 'Deadliest Catch' - knowing that Captain Phil died back in February as this season was almost finished being filmed. I also know they extensively covered the stroke that lead to his death and now I find myself just waiting for that to occur. It breaks my heart to hear him talking about how great it is to fish with his sons when you know the future. Human's shouldn't know the future.
These aren't normal reality show actors. They are real people who are doing a real fishing show who just happen to have the cameras on them. When you are that tired you can't fake emotion coming from you. That is what fascinates me about that program. Any one who doesn't believe that needs to be on the deck in high winds and 40 foot seas. That terrifies me from my couch.
I also love seeing those pots come up over the deck full of crabs. It's the same thrill I get seeing a sheep being sheered and seeing the wool come off in one piece.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
