Really Weird Fish(es)

I love StumbleUpon, the internet equivalent of channel surfing which shows you new pages, sites and videos based on your preferences. Whilst using StumbleUpon, I found this page of bizarre underwater creatures. Check it out. Over Thanksgiving, I impulsively (read "stupidly") saw The Mist, a trite, typecast adaptation of a Stephen King novel. Based a loose understanding of the most absurd versions of quantum theory, the movie features creatures from "another dimension," which bear some resemblance to a handful of these aquarian curiosities. Perhaps the sequel could take place at the bottom of the sea.

As one may have guessed from the title, this story is an excuse to post a video of Radiohead's song Weird Fishes/Arpeggi from In Rainbows:

The Mist? For shame, John. I'll admit that I cared enough to read a plot spoiler online, and it sounded like a grim, overly talky, and ultimately depressing as hell waste of two hours. Then again, I paid to see Ghost Rider, so I have very little right to judge.

My best friend made me watch it last night because he loved it, which made me very sad.
