A Dreamyfish Art film short 'The BP oil spill: a fish's plea'

Presenting to you my new '8mm film short' of Dreamyfish Art denizens sending a message to their 'Gulf Coast cousins' concerning the scar that is the BP-Gulf oil spill of April 20, 2010.

And no one seems to know how to begin to cure it. Committee meetings shall be held in Washington so we know it's a point of discussion there but the sea is way too deep. Therefore, conclusions leading to actions may be politically tentative and risky but who knows the consequences of action until you try?

And yet...things feel...fishy. In more ways than one. Because...

If this entire Capitol Hill charade with BP, Transocean, and Halliburton execs (lined up like little penguins quacking out of both sides of their bills about how they don't-know-can't-say-wait-and-see) is really about BP filing for bankruptcy and skirting their responsibilities while making off like racoons, then I, for one, will be very very, enraged to the point of complete snitdom at the oil industry's craven audacity.

If this sounds as if I jest, I do not. If it seems so, perhaps I misspoke. There's a bunch of that going around these days especially in DC where its cover first hooded a politician's tongue.

Well, at least there's a smidgen of Art around to keep me calm, right?

With out Art and my love of Drawing I'd go batty with all the Astrology and Politics I attempt to follow and blog about almost every day.

But never mind that now. Time to dog paddle over to Dreamyfish Art if you find you're developing a yen to view additional botanical fish portraits of South Australian fish (with their botanical names) as my pencils have pictured them within the imaginary scenery of their more colorful dreams.

Because fish dream, too, you know! But never do they dream of oil spills.
