A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose. Story notes title the Sea Monster Ten years later using beauty and the beast just inspiration. In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history. The story told to Allen by Mexican cinematographer gave Figaro was based on the legend of Jaka. Ruina buried accounts describe. The arena is being Harry with their heads turned backwards and deformed feet. Could be characterized as seductive and sexually dangerous lure humans into water by taking on human forms when people of the Amazon and community disappear, and do not return such as fishermen husbands in young girls, deception is the ACA Luna had seduced and captured their victims.

Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken. He and his wife returned to the states. They soon separated. It was an auditory years later alone and distraught, but he returned to the Amazon River, whereas daughter had vanished that he saw her again still alive, but it transformed into a mermaid. She had married a yacht, Luna and gain knowledge in becoming healer of the waters. No one ever saw. saw the doctor again.

Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many

"But it's these various versions good or bad. That's sort of grew out of that. Well, I think it's also a lot of people who grew up watching that are nabs making things. Yeah. And male and female, they like they grew up with this like bad ass fan pyre slayer. Right. And they're like I wanna make stuff like that. And so it's really cool to see like like over like looking back on the past thirty years of TV. How these how important this stuff it at how getting to see stuff like that really has an effect on both the art that's made in people's lives. And so much of it is coming from genre to. Yeah. It's really interesting, which is so it's I mean, you know, this very very well. And I'm sure a lot of your listeners this the John Ray ghetto where people think that you're not a serious writer if you're. Doing comics or you're doing Sifi are you doing fantasy? But it's always the most important stories that we get and they're the ones that stick with people the ones that change people's lives, saluting to that end your favorite classic horror. What's funny, your favorite and things you'd recommend to people who don't have a good idea of? I'm not gonna say creature. Very shocking to people, but my heart does belong to the Wolfman original nineteen forty mile. I o where we'll feel good on. And I love the original Wolfman. So so much just because it's so I think what a lot of we're wolf movies. Don't do is. They don't show the real emotional angst and anguish behind being aware wolf the whole legend of aware. What was all about the dual personality, it's Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde stuff, and that is very very heroin for someone emotionally. And it's easy to make cool bass we're movie where people biting heads off. Bam. Bam. Bam. But the for me, the real magic is that struggle. And I think that launch any junior really union and do a lot of other great stuff, but he was really great at being the Wolfman and that movie. So I mean, it's very dated forties. It's very date. Very, but it's not as boring as the mummy though. No, oh my gosh. Even though I do love the mummy because I love the main woman the heroin. In the mummy famous. She's and the mummy looks great. But I think the Wolfman is really rewatch -able. It totally holds up. It's super fun because of his performance in a lotta ways. Yes. But if you are looking for fun monster stuff, and you don't want people who are like, hey, I don't like the universal monsters. I get it some of it's John it's dated. You don't it's the pacing of movies in the forties, which were slower paced. Like, it was novel to watch someone walk across a room. Yeah. Now, we're so used to so much stimulation. So I always recommend a movie. Danish movie is on Netflix right now, it's called one animals dream, and it is like the feminist where wolf movie of my dreams is. It's just so wonderful. It's very quick. It's very fast paced, the world's looks great. And it's nuts. It's so good. Really good. I was surprised. I didn't hear about it. More at the time it came out. Yeah. I was shocked 'cause I only I didn't find out about it. Right. When it came out normally like where we'll movies come out. I can feel it somewhere in the world. I'm the person. But I completely went under the radar. It was It like. was like maybe six months after it came out of friend of mine this like, hey, have you ever seen this? And I was like what it's really it's behi- quality top to bottom. Oh, it's beautiful. And it's I mean, it's like hour and twenty minutes now, so watchable. So if you are interested in in monsters, but you're like older stuff. Not for me, definitely checkout animals Toronto good on. Is there stuff that you have seen recently a horror stuff you've seen recently that you have love not necessarily recommend? But that you have loved I just watched the hor- new documentary on shutter, which is a documentary of a history of black people in horror, movies and black filmmakers in the horror genre in it is in credible..

"And right now, we're midway through season eight which is very unfortunate, but up until that point. Up until about the fifth season. Where things start to go off the rail. So much. I love Scully so much even though this parts of it that are very dated. And I wish you didn't have to run in heels all the time. But I definitely recommend it. If you're if people are in a spot where they're like, I really just need to disconnect like watch something. But kind of disconnect from people watching old show. Yes, I've been hearing it a lot of always end the podcast by asking what people are watching. And lately, it's been a lot of rewatching comfortable were just mentioning the wire, what was the other one that you mentioned that last one? I don't remember. Oh, thirty rock. She's rewatching just stuff that is comfort food or that is like people watching it to see how it works. Right. Take it apart and put it back together, which is really really nice as a horror fan or a raider watching X files is great because you have of this. You know, there's a mix of monster of the week. And this like over king Batholomew that sometimes is terrible. And sometimes great all this great character work. So it's really one for a while. That's what we would do. I would work all day me, and my partner would work and. At night. We would just put on X files. Everything that's how we got we going to eight seasons. And these are, you know, seasons that are twenty something. It's really amazing in our current team climate where we're used to sit. Now, it's all six ten episodes at a time so back then having a twenty people at twenty something episode to twenty four like, it's a lot. So and there's some they're duds in there. It's so weak to it is fascinating watching. Yeah. It's really really fun to see what works, and what doesn't and it's real. But it's also at the same time just great to turn your brain off because at the end of the day fighting aliens. So it's really comforting. I really really enjoyed it. I in you know, Scully was such an important female character. Because she's like, she's the original bad ass ladies, not the original. But in TV, you know, she changed so many things. So as great to actually 'cause I've seen the Scully affect in the world headed seen her. But it's funny. I love I just adore her so much now now like scully's like my patron Saint. Well, it's an interesting thing. I mean, you mentioned seeing the effect. I feel like we're getting that with now with Buffy. Oh, yeah. We're like we're seeing the effect that that show in that character had on TV..

"And then you're like, I could write more I could write for another half hour before you know, what you're really in the rhythm of it. It's for me. It's all about taking the pressure off and not feeling like it's like going to the gym if immediately you're like I have to work out for two hours a day. You're never gonna get there because you don't want to do that. But if you're like what if? Can run half a mile all of a sudden you wanna do more for short a great attitude? Was this something you had to learn for yourself? Oh, yes. For for a really long time. I had this idea. I was like, okay. I have to write every day. I have to write for like eight hours at a time because this is my job. Now, I have to get all this stuff done. And it was killing me. I was so stressed out and so exhausted. And like after that four hours it is like pulling teeth, but I felt like I was failing. And after a while. I was like no ourselves. Yes. And then I wouldn't right. So instead of writing for, you know, four hour chunks every day during the week. I was not writing at all and feeling even worse. So once I gave myself permission to right? The way that I needed to then I was like, oh, I could do this every day. This is it's all about sustainability finding a way to be able to do it long term. I think that's that's it's funny of having this conversation a lot lately. And that's the thing that keeps coming up is like, maybe when you're. Twenty you can you can write for hours and hours at a time. And you know, you can do twenty hour days. But like if you wanna live through this this you're living. Yes. That's the key. Right. There is if you want to be a writer, you have to find a way to to repeat all of this to do it every day not every day or do. It is often as you can to get your stuff done right to put out the pages. Yes. Absolutely. Were there? Let let's talk about two aspects of the lady from the black lagoon one is Millicent story, which I was describing to someone a friend the other day in recommended in the book saying, she she, you know, the hook is sort of the lady from the black lagoon, she had this crazy Forrest Gump through Hollywood. Yes variance. Yes. I assume you didn't you weren't aware of that stuff until you started doing the research. No, that's the crazy part. If people have asked me what I made up for the book. And I can't I was like I can't make this stuff up. She. Going into this project. I knew she had designed the creature from the black lagoon that alone was enough to make me wanna tell her story. But as I started researching her she was also the one of the first female animators at Disney, she grew up at Hearst castle. Like, she had this crazy life like Harare Mandic. Life was crazy like all this stuff. And I was I cannot make this up. And I couldn't believe it in it really that those were the big chunks that started to fall into place because before it was like creature was like the big part of the book, and then I've actually got smaller and smaller as the research went on because I was like oh my God. I have to run a whole huge chapter on just the Disney stuff, which was all equally fascinate crazy. Anyone like when you pick this book up as a monster fan? You're gonna get that going to get all this other stuff that is. So interesting is still about all of the things that the book is about. Yes, it's like a cross section of California history Hollywood history film history. And also, I do want to say. No one. You don't have to have seen the creature from the black lagoon, I tried to make it acceptable. I hate film stuff where people are like just talk and all these terms, I'm not gonna tell you what any of the mean because I'm a filmmaker..

"You know, my my best tip is no one's going to be more enthusiastic about your project than you are. So don't be afraid hate when writers always they self reject and they sell themselves short. They're like, oh, you know. I did this thing if you're not excited about something who else is going to be no, I mean, your friends might try to help you out, but you have to just get yourself out there. And then boil it down start with a paragraph, and then it's like, it's like operation, you know, try to pick out the things that can go and see what really. Oil down to and like, then all of a sudden, you'll have something that you can say in two sentences. It makes you feel more confident could memorize it dude in front of the mirror if you need to horrible. Yeah. It is true. But some shy people need to do that and saying it out loud makes a huge difference. Yes. Just practice. It. I said pitch pitch to your friends. It's you know, might make you feel kind of sad. But I've done it. I pitched time. Yeah. There's no stakes and you have find a friend. That's going to be honest with you. But it really is so important, and it makes all the world of difference. If you're at some kind of party, and you meet someone who might be able to help you if you have a way to pitcher project really quickly, and really compellingly all of a sudden, you're the writer that that person's going to remember at that party being memorable makes a big difference. Yes. Being memorable for saying something people wanna hear different. Yes. I will say for sort of longer form pitching. I think this is in like the first six months of doing this podcast. Got the best piece of advice. I think it was from Damon Lindelof who said to pitch your story as if it was a movie, you just saw the can't wait to tell your friends about which which means when you wind up pitching it. You're only telling the best parts. Yeah. You're like this happened this cool thing, then this cool thing. And then it's over and it's like. Exactly, I still think of that every time we have to go pitch something. That's really great. It is. Okay. So so this deal sort of came together over the year, you you put together the proposal, which seems like it was pretty much what the book became. Yes. But then you mentioned earlier learning how to work with an editor, which I'm really curious to hear about. Yeah. It was great. I mean, I up until this point up until when I started writing lady from the black lagoon, I've been a filmmaker for almost six years. I have written screenplays I've sold screenplays. And but you know, you don't unless you have a movie and production. You're not really getting notes, you know, if you're writing stuff on spec or you're selling short stories online, or you're just writing blog posts, you're not it's not as active it's not as collaborative. Yes. In learning to work with an editor. I think is so important because people have to remember is that when you're working with editor. They're not yelling at you. They're not saying that you're bad. They are giving you vice because they want to make what you're doing better and they're invested. Yes. Exactly. They're only doing this because they like your work. So a lot of people they get back on their. Oh, they're making change all this stuff. It's so sad because they love it because they wanted to be better. And it's really it's a lot easier. When you stop getting precious about things and just sort of like are willing to listen to other people it's such an important skill..

"What it would be like if we because they're still no, big female monster. There are some like there's the movie like she creature and nothing that is broken through like anniversary monster exactly I mean, there's bride of Frankenstein. But I fall design though. Yeah. And also like she gets like two minutes in the movie, you didn't get a duty to cool. So she looks really does look really cool Elsa Lanchester made account. So I think that I can't even imagine what it would be like to have a female monster like that. So it's so interesting to me to see like how far we've made it on just scraps like little little scraps. And how important monsters should be to women. And why I think that if the whole industry was a little bit and fandom was a little bit more kind. How many more women would come out of the woodwork and be like, actually, I really love this stuff? But I was afraid to say so because this is not a like a kind. Yes. Or even told is now for girls think just occurring to me if this is dumb. We. Can take this out. Would it be redundant to have a female on Stor a classic new monster? What's funny is that? Yeah. I mean, there are I mean, we have which is and stuff we have sexy vampires, there are female monsters out there. But they're so sexualize, I think it would be so powerful to have like a female Godzilla or a female Frankenstein, just something where you see a woman or a female monster not doing like, not being a mom or like doing very typical female things. But just like smashing stuff like just being mad like I think it would be super cool just killing a blonde girl, you know, just normal everyday things that we we hold do the monsters love to do kill him killing people. You know, it's a great way to get it some stress out. And why do you think there is? And maybe there's no answer to this. But like, you are you you did grow up as a girl in these phantoms. And there is a barrier to entry for a lot of women. I mean, my wife didn't read a comic book until. I started writing comic. Like, what is that barrier to entry is it's it can't just be the over sexualization, which I think probably plays a part in that part. But it's not all of because it's the fandom to. Yes, there's a weird, and I've experienced countless times, and this is with comics with music with movies. There's this weird entry exam that you get there. So many you can't just casually like things, and that's why I think there's a lot of pressure on women. I used to be the kind of person I was like I can't wear a heavy metal shirt.

People can find each other better people are making a lot better art. And I think I mean comics is such a huge thing. Like, I mean, it's like it's so funny women have liked comics for so long. But now they're finally able to find each other and to make comics and to put them out by themselves without a publisher. And I think that's happening in all industries. And there's a lot of amazing women telling her stories, I let people like Becky Cloonan like that are great comic book makers or filmmakers, and I think it's definitely big ships turn slowly..

"I'm CLYDE Lewis Ground zero You bring up, sharp movies everybody thinks that Josh Of course they do you there really. Wasn't one, that topped it that I know, of I, mean there were other attempts, at doing I guess scary sea creature movies are of course the piranha remember piranha. I went and saw that too long time ago those piranha. There was this one alligator movie with Betty white I went. And saw camera with that wounds. Called Blake placid that's what it's. Called Lake Placid and Of course the abyss but that wasn't really a shark movie. That wasn't really a monster movie with monsters in the water. And of course Godzilla counts I. Think Three I had an interest in this oh yeah oh, my God I can't I can't forget when I was in fact to this day the creature from. The black lagoon the the. Gilman right If you go back and you watch the Gill man in the. Creature from the black lagoon and, it was a three d film so I, don't know if, he's still have in three d. but I used, to collect be horror films and SCI fi films and I, remember when I watched I actually got a bunch, of people together? And I said I wanna watch, the creature from the black lagoon and. I wanna have like a popcorn. Party and. Get together and. We had. The three glasses we had the. What was it the red, blue tint type TV watching it with the glasses on And I remember there was There was a scene in, creature from the black lagoon That I think Spielberg actually was kind of mimicking It was where They're in this part of I don't know the this part. Of. The the black lagoon okay like the ocean area or whatever it was they were in the boat is up there and Julianne Adams, Julia Adams was, the was the woman in the film and Julie Adams is swimming and she's got I think if I recall she's got this white bathing suit and she's swimming and. She's kind of like treading water in the in the ocean. And. All of a sudden you see the Gilman come up any basically taps her on the toe And I'm, like whoa I mean you know. The reason why it still scares me to this day is that used to go when I was a, kid when, we lived in Utah that was. An area. Called Utah lake and they used to have something. Called the, car Brennan and what it was that we all they. Had this unlimited like you can go fishing, it's his unlimited catch of carp and so people would go into do all, kinds of weird things would go in and they would like you know shoot them with bows and arrows they would they would find creative ways to kill the carp And what you do is you'd walk into Utah lake and since it was it was, mostly shallow, what great Salt Lake is mostly. Shallow you. Walk in and the carp would swim pasture legs Okay and there was nothing more terrifying than feeling this huge fish rubbing up against your leg and and sometimes they even suck on your leg and you're standing there and not only that. But you're trying to avoid getting in. A mud bog, because you've, got into a mud bog you'd sink and it was. The scariest feeling because. You couldn't. Get yourself out of the mud bog you'd had to hold onto somebody else so you're. Like you know and what happened the way we would. Catch the carp this was really scary we were we were in there and we. Tried to avoid the mud bugs by father created these Weenie roasting type things where. It. Was on the these double skewers you'd have on there was like a fork and we'd we'd catch the carp with our forks so we'd plunged the fork into the car and bring, the car back plunged pork into the carpet bring the car back but just being in the water and feeling something rub up against your leg was terrifying enough and I can just imagine how. That would feel if you were in. The ocean and, something rubbed, up against your leg whether it'd be a shark or. Anything for that matter. It's rubbing. Up against I mean I've heard people talk about they're jellyfish that hit them and stuff That to me, would be terrifying and see, I've never really I've never talked with anybody I knew a lot of people who serve and they go to the ocean and because we live what eighty five miles away from the coast so. I've. Known people that they don't talk about having any kind of, attacks with sharks we see a lot of Wales in. Deep obey whales and depot Bayer there there's well season go watch Wales. And it's, kind of nice when the ocean is just so powerful and I went to the beach it was like two or three weeks ago and there I was standing on the shore and the water. Was coming up to my legs and I'm thinking to myself I wouldn't, be able now to go, into the water without, worrying about being taken by a riptide or even eaten by a shark because there have been, a lot of reports of shark attacks lately there've been a lot of reports of fish die offs lately and and whales, bottlenose whales being washing up on shore and the reason, why is because you're. Saying the, water is getting warmer in fact I think they took a reading Off the San Diego in San Diego area took a reading off the coast there and they found the waters like seventy nine degrees and so. This isn't good for the wildlife in the fish and the and the seals not good. At all for them and and so it's kind of worrisome because it's worrisome. And it's also pretty revealing because lately there have been what are known as globs tres they've been washing up on shore which are. Unidentified fish or an identified sea creatures that wash up on shore that are dead nobody knows what they are and they can't figure that,.
