#MarchIntoThe70s #Day9 #Barracuda
Vostok has went way off the rails into alternate dimensions, aliens, and worst of all lots and lots of math. But before it went all crazy, it was a really entertaining lost world creature book. Like when their small submarine, the barracuda, gets swallowed whole by a giant prehistoric eel.

#barracuda | I‘m just going with fishing here; not barracuda, but trout. 🎣 My husband tried and tried to get me to read this for years and I finally did last year. It‘s fantastic, of course!


Cinfhen I‘m obsessed with the background graphics 😍🤩😍🤩 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Thanks! It‘s a piece of scrapbook paper. I love how it looks like scales. 8mo
Cinfhen I want it as mosaic tile....love it 8mo

britt_brooke @Cinfhen That would be so pretty! 8mo
mdhughes72 Love the book, the movie, and the amazing soundtrack by Mark Isham. I listened to it as I ran the Missoula Marathon last July. 8mo
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 That‘s awesome! How many marathons have you completed? 8mo
mdhughes72 21 so far. Working on running all 50 states. Next up, St Louis! 8mo
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 That‘s incredible!! 8mo
gradcat @mdhughes72 Congratulations on all those marathons! I will never be able to run one of those, but I think we might have something else in common...do you love soundtracks in general and Mark Isham in particular, because I do!! 8mo
mdhughes72 @gradcat I do enjoy certain movie soundtracks. One of my favorites is Fantastic Mr Fox. Such fun! I don‘t know any other Mark Isham soundtracks that I enjoy, and when I checked out one of his non-movie-related recordings I wasn‘t very impressed. 8mo
mdhughes72 @britt_brooke I used to be very impressed with myself, but what I do is very tame compared to those who run tris and ultras, some in extreme conditions. I just do it to stay well, not because I‘m any good at it or obsessed with running. I didn‘t run at all until my mid-30s. It gives me an excuse to get outdoors and to travel. 8mo
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 Those folks that run ultras or compete in iron man, etc are totally crazy. You‘re medium crazy. Actually, no, you‘re totally crazy, too. That‘s a lot of marathons! I pat myself on the back when I do back to back cycle classes (2hrs) on Saturdays. 😆 (edited) 8mo
gradcat @mdhughes72 Somehow soundtrack writer/musician‘s work doesn‘t really translate in other genres...I mean, did you ever listen to Brian Eno‘s “Music for Airports”? It‘s not for everybody. But Isham used to do a lot of children‘s storybook soundtracks, and I loved his theme music 🎼 8mo
mdhughes72 @britt_brooke I didn‘t run when my kids were small and the Y offered free child care. Perhaps your time will come later as it did for me? Perhaps it‘s the kids that made me totally crazy?? 8mo
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 Kids have definitely made me crazy. 😬 8mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #Day9 #Barracuda I‘m gonna have to go with The Umbrella Academy for this prompt. I was binging the series on Netflix(which is fantastic by the way)and thinking of which book to use, when the song Barracuda started playing in that episode. Who am I to ignore hints from the universe! This GN series is written by Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance, about 7 children born in strange circumstances & adopted by an eccentric millionaire.

Cinfhen I love when I receive signs from the universe ☂️☔️💙👍🏻☔️☂️ 8mo
TrishB My daughter is obsessed with it. She got to meet him at comic con and get the novels signed by him. He was a nice guy even when she grabbed his hand and told him she really loved him 😁 8mo

Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir | Shannon Leone Fowler
post image

#MarchIntothe70s Shannon Fowler, a marine biologist studying to get her PHD was backpacking through Asia with her fiancé when a freak accident altered her world. Not a #barracuda but a box jellyfish stung Sean while they were wading knee deep in the waters of Thailand, leaving him dead within minutes. Truly alone, Shannon embarks on a pilgrimage of war torn countries to find solace and “to see what survival looked like.” ???

britt_brooke How devastating! 😔 8mo
Cinfhen Parts of the memoir are repetitive but Shannon writes beautifully and passionately and her pain still feels so fresh & raw some 15 years later. It‘s fascinating to read about her travels to countries were the citizens understand pain and loss at a young age. She was 27 her fiancé was days shy of 26 @britt_brooke It‘s an #infinitetissueread (edited) 8mo
TrishB Wow 😮💔 8mo
Lizpixie Those jellyfish are lethal, and so small too. It‘s terrifying what can kill you in the tropics.🦈🐡🕷🐍 8mo
