Speaking of fish…

Yes, I am aware that a killer whale is not a fish, but segues are supposed to be strained, so bear with me.

I have a soft spot for animals, but I just can’t help finding this a really cool “experiment”.  Does that make me a bad person?  No?  How about the gaggle of dead hookers in my basement?  (Note to Orwellian FBI web-sniffer programs – I don’t really have dead hookers in my basement… they are all alive and well…. goddammit, off-topic again.)

    Great find.  I loved some of the other movies on that site.  I’ve been watching them all afternoon.

    Wow.  I find that so disturbing.  Seriously.  I can’t see the merit of deliberately causing something to suffer, even if it is “just” a fish.

    Yah…. I don’t know about that one. I’m all for fishing, so obviously I’m not super keen on being nice to fishies…but that’s just hard to watch. I kept thinking about it being a person in a room filling with water.

    Would it help if I were to inform you that the goldfish was a reincarnated Nazi SS officer?  I thought so.. enjoy.

    I had totally forgotten that URL.  Thanks.

    Did you see the one with the rat? This isn’t art, and it isn’t clever, it’s bullshit trying to be different.  That’s all.

    Now I agree that it’s not art.  But come on – jump-starting a fish with a battery is pretty fucking clever.

    I don’t appreciate the method, but I do see what they are trying to convey. However, I do not think it is artwork in the broadest sense of the term.

    I just cannot condone what they did. I don’t enjoy watching a creature struggle and be helpless.

    I feel like I just lost a chunk of my life since I had to manually search for this.  Tremendous search capability on the buddha today.
