Lately I’ve spent more time with dolphins than actual humans and I’m totally okay with that.

FISH!

Today I went to Allan’s Aquarium Store (a real place! On Lincoln in Venice!) to pick out the first batch of fish for the 20-gallon aquarium my brother, Josh and his wife, Sheila, got on Monday. Going to Allan’s Aquarium Store is so much fun. I love going there. It was the second time this week! That store is my happy place. It is like a tiny little vacation to a mini-aquarium. What a delight!

So anyway, the new fish!

Ursula LeFin, is a Fancy Guppy with an iridescent yellow and white coloring and a beautiful tail. And yes, her name is a pun on the science fiction author Ursula LeGuin, and was a collaborative name choice by the three of us.

Oscar Martinez, who is also a Fancy Guppy and has a beautiful black and white coloring with yet another illustrious tail. He is named after one of Sheila’s favorite characters from her favorite show, The Office.

Duncan Idaho 1 and Duncan Idaho 2 are a pair of identical looking “Tetra” that are named for a character who was regularly cloned in the Dune books. Eventually my brother plans to get at least three more, so then we’ll have Duncan Idahos 3-5. I imagine we’ll eventually just refer to them as The Duncan Idahos. This was a pretty genius name choice thanks to Josh, but only after I prompted him to think of a character who’s a clone (I used Orphan Black as an example, but he was thinking in literary terms), seeing as all these fish look exactly alike. Et voila, Duncan Idaho!

Chicken Nugget, is a Chinese Algae Eater and is the largest of the fish and could possibly get as big as eight inches and was totally freaked out when we dropped in the tank. I was the one who named him Chicken Nugget because I like Chicken Nuggets.

Austrialian electro-pop duo Empire of the Sun have announced the arrival of their sophomore album, Ice on the Dune.

Thoughts:
I like this band, just like, in general, so this is exciting news.
Sometimes I wish I had a writing partner just so I could tell people we’re actually an “Electro-pop duo”
Australians can be a good thing in moderation (ahem, Gotye)
Is this from the outtakes for Star Trek?
Is that dude in blue also the bad guy from The Avengers?
"Ice on the Dune" better be a reference to Dune.
Is snowpunk a thing now? Hashtagging #snowpunk to be safe
These bros are way overdressed for Coachella.
