Book Clubs are For Losers

Just kidding. They rule. For a look at some books I've read, am reading, or want to read, click on the Books link :)

Some other things I like; beautiful women, strong women, music, music, music, Minnesota. I talk about things, but I don't do them. It is the basis for everything I hate about myself.

Mi primera vista de Aconcagua.  A tras, con nueve en la cima.

My first view of Aconcagua.  In the back with snow on the peak.

Since the release of Blackfish, a documentary which chronicled the troubled life of the orca Tilikum (above), in 2013, the percentage of Americans opposed to cetacean captivity has risen to 50% (up 11% from a 2012 poll). SeaWorld’s attendance has dropped 13% in the first quarter of 2014, with earnings down 11%.  The Blackstone Group, which purchased SeaWorld in 2009, reduced their holdings of SeaWorld’s stock to 25%.  The National Aquarium in Baltimore is now considering ending their practice of displaying dolphins and retiring their animals to a sea pen.  The ‘Blackfish effect’ has changed so many lives, but what about its star, Tilikum?

After a year of costly PR campaigns, YouTube videos and commercials touting their exceptional animal care, Tilikum and the other orcas at SeaWorld’s parks haven’t seen any real improvement in their lives.  Their tanks haven’t been expanded, broken family bonds have not been repaired and Tilikum the deadly 12,000 pound bull orca is still floating like a cork in the dank pool that made him famous.  After a year of protests, reduced turnstile clicks and constant attacks on their social media platforms, SeaWorld still hasn’t gotten the message and Tilikum, the one being whose existence should have felt the biggest impact from the Blackfish effect, remains untouched by its message.

SeaWorld is never going to volunteer to do the right thing by Tilikum or any of their 28 other whales, it’s up to us to #emptythetanks.

Ever since I saw Free Willy I’ve thought the collapsed dorsal fin on a killer whale is about the saddest thing on this planet.

This movie basically outlines exactly how I feel and everything I want from a relationship with a dog.  Soo happy I finally watched it.

"In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitchhiker’s Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects. First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words DON’T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.” -Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

are you sure you're ready for this conversation

- This is the worst when you don't speak nearly enough of the language to get the true point across...

No se porque este aviso me interesó, probablemente porque es muy viejo pero si alguna vez haría cerveza, tengo un nombre y una marca , jaja

Not sure why this interested me so much, probably because it’s really old, but if I ever make beer I have a name and a design, lol. #teatroIPA
