A Week at Sea: Octo-Samurai. We're screwed.

The Three Musketeers

By Mead Schaeffer.

I know that the Musketeers have absolutely nothing to do with the sea, but I tend to lump them in with other swashbucklers like Captain Blood, etc., so for me they're sort of second-cousins to pirates. And they did cross the English Channel a lot.

The Blue Fairy Book

By Frank Godwin.

Dead men tell lots of tales, actually

Animation background from The Rescuers.

Your 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Picture of the Day

By Alphonse de Neuville.


By Matthew S. Armstrong.

Why my son will never be able to read my blog...

My boy's got a severe phobia of tentacles and suction cups. I think I'm developing one too after seeing this. But I appreciate Calvin for staying on the watchtower and letting us know what the Evil Cephalopodic Forces are up to.

Octo-Samurai. We're screwed.

Tell you son that I got over my fear by taking out a few of these tentacled killers with EXTREME prejudice. He is always welcome to be part of the resistance. Glad to see he realized early the danger we all are in. Don't worry. I will grease them before they get anywhere near him.

And if you got an 'in' with mer-man tell him to return my emails. We could use his help too.

(Have you ever seen the BBC faux-nature documentary The Future Is Wild... the one with the octopi taking over every ecological niche on Earth?)

And for the record, I agree that musketeers totally have their place on the Adventureblog.

That documentary is my worst fricken nightmare. I need to see it...we all need to see it. Am I the only one who sees the truth?

And on another note I totally endorse the addition of the Musketeer on the Adventureblog

Cal, you're the Fox Mulder of the Octopus Wars. :)

Siskoid, I don't think I've seen that one. There's an animated show for kids with the same name that has a lot of octopus-like creatures, but there's nothing documentary-like about it. Yours sounds much more interesting.
