More "Planet Earth" Love...


This really is a phenomenal series. Last night we started with the one on caves and right away I knew it was gonna be tough to watch, what with all the batshit, cockroaches, and pigmentless salamanders. I was especially interested in the Cave Glow Worms with their luminous butts that dangle their sticky, silken strings with which to snare flying insects. I thought the term "mucus hammock" was particularly poetic. Talk about a great name for a band...

Isn't it a fantastic series!? The huge pile of bat shit crawling with cockroaches was something I just wanted out of my head...

I don't know why, but the cave episode was my favorite. Maybe it's because there was a "secret" world going on.

gawd, that was horrible. Mostly 'cuz while I was fascinated, I could see myself blundering thru a cave, getting all that shit stuck in my hair and having all those lil' fuckers plop down on me from above.

I would immediately and permanently loose my sanity.

Your words to describe such disgusting stuff are so ... poetic ... Chris.

It is now my mission to find out where this is playing and watch it. I LOVE this sort of thing.
