One of my favorite weeks all year is Sharkweek via Discovery channel. Not only does it display how awesome sharks and nature are but it’s also entertaining and educational all in one. In recent years, Sharkweek has propelled into a pop culture phenomenon. As an avid fan of sharks and Discovery channel, I am glad it’s getting its due fame but this year the trend seems to have exploded and seeped into a new realm, fashion; which is a wave I am definitely ready and willing to ride.
I can’t accept the whole “eat shark meat” fad because that just seems wrong to me. I keep hoping that shark week educates people that sharks are really not evil (don’t go pissing them off and you’ll be fine) and are really just awesome predators that got lucky in the gene pool. Apparently that’s optimistic thinking of me but maybe slowly people will stop hunting them since its bad enough we are encroaching their habitats. But, I can definitely understand other shark trends like socks, shoes, clothes, and bags… Just maybe not shark hair. And of course, who’s not excited about Sharknado 2!!!
In theory I like the idea of shark bathing suits but maybe not this one since it looks like either the shark is eating her lady parts or more so like her lady parts have shark teeth. Either way, not flattering.
These on the other hand are AWESOME!!!
What about you? Are you a Sharkweek fan? Do you daydream about going diving with sharks or is that just me? Do you like any of these fashions? Would you wear them?
Okay so I am little late on this bandwagon, (I need to get a little more up to speed on using and staying connected to twitter) but apparently Sci-fi’s infamous “Sharknado” tsunamied social media to a level that even news broadcasts did their fluff pieces about the movie.
I just saw the movie with some friends and honestly I believe it was made for the purpose of being the worst movie ever. Not only did it have the worst graphics but it was so poorly made and edited that the plot drowned and was difficult to follow. Although, the inconsistencies only made it even more entertaining.
Based on some sort of storm where sharks were capable of surviving and attacking people without being immersed in ocean water, the movie had its fair share of love triangles, family drama, a mysterious scar on a the sexy girl, cheesy lines, sharks falling out of the sky, helicopters managing to fly near tornados, and of course, terrible accents. And that wasn’t even all of it. The nonsensical progression and “solutions” to the sharknado were nothing short of extraordinarily outrageous and the end, which I wouldn’t want to ruin for you, is definitely a cheer out loud kind of moment.
There isn’t much more I can say because really I was just in awe but then again it was “Sharknado: enough said.”
Just be sure to grab some friends and maybe a little extra liquid courage if you plan to watch the whole thing. I promise you’ll have a hilarious night ahead of you! (because the entire population of all species of sharks are attacking California from the sky while only 5 people seem to notice)
And obviously I am eagerly anticipating this:
So did you see Sharknado? Will you hunt it down and watch it now? What did you think?
