    So I was just sitting down with Mr. TiVo this evening when what should I come across but a bunch of marine life themed b-movies; two of them ceph-related.

    September 23 is the day!

    9:00am-11:00am Blood Surf
    11:00am-1:00pm Shark Attack 2
    1:00pm-3:00pm Shark Attack 3: Megalodon
    3:00pm-5:00pm Octopus
    5:00pm-7:00pm Octopus II
    7:00pm-9:00pm Hammerhead: Shark Frenzy
    9:00pm-11:00pm Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep
    11:00pm-1:00am Snakehead Terror
    1:00am-3:00am Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep
    3:00am-5:00am Dark Waters

    Nearly a whole day of fishy smelling cinema. Get out the Moon Pies and have a fish film festival.

    dang it! you beat me to it.... i saw the really bad commercial for the kraken one when doing the same as yourself....

    didn't know it was a whole lineup though.....

    on a side note, i didnt think people in california would've ever heard of moon pies (except as a punch line) much less chow down on them.... :thumbsup:

    Remember, WK - just about everybody in California originated someplace else! Well, at least in the big cities. I don't know, Sacramento might be different...

    It's pretty much just like you thought. Moon pies are more or less a joke here.

    my prevailing theory is that northern cali is primarily (with exceptions) just being smarmy..... don't worry, i hear they keep telling themselves the bank of america deal was a 'merger' instead of a takeover....

    long story short Jean, it's just US inter-region grief.... although Moon Pies are tasty when fresh.... even though they need an accompanying drink... they do lend themselves to a certain backward stereotype....

    I just ordered the Moon Pie tin as a b-day gift for a friend. Thanks for the link! He'll probably be rockin' a mullet after his b-day.

    Didn't you ever see the movie, the Green Mile? The bad guy has a moon pie in his cell.
