Sunday Links: Who mocks the Watchmen?

Yes, talking about blue whales and the Watchmen in the same post WAS deliberate. No, I do not have dignity or self-restraint.

  • Speaking of whales, is conservation NGO Sea Shepherd actually helping them by criminal ramming of ships in the Antarctic? (You can tell how I feel about that.) What about sharks? Dr. M at Deep Sea News discusses the ship-ramming incident  (though the discussion ends in foul sockpuppetery) and WhySharksMatter at Southern Fried Scientist tackles the sharks, with possible cameo by Paul Watson. Also see Shark Divers’s excellent series.
  • I haven’t made it to the Watchmen movie yet, but that hasn’t stopped me from mocking it. Two quality parodies (via Martini-Corona):
  1. Saturday Morning Watchmen – “Strong together, united forever, they’re the best of friends!”
  2. What if Woody Allen (or Sofia Coppola or Quentin Tarentino) had directed Watchmen? Slideshow from Slate.

    I’m geeked, too. I thought maybe there wuold be some live blogging of it, but alas no.

    In fact, I’m having a Marine Week at my site. I read a great children’s book about whales last night and I have two more – one about marine ecosystems and another about sharks – to read for tomorrow’s Book Review Monday.
