And you might want to learn more about Chris Knowles and his blog 'The Secret Sun' if you don't already know who he is -

And you might want to put on your tin-foil hat, if you have one, too;-)

Maybe put on some floaties and grab a can of shark repellent, as well:-)
And maybe a crucifix, just in case ... better the devil you know, as they say:-)
Portman, Pop-Culture and Irony: A Black Swan State and Annihilation?-)
A black swan event maybe?-)
This shark story above was out of a weekend newspaper magazine called 'QWeekend' the weekend of the Queensland event at QAGOMA to launch the Netflix series 'Tidelands'.

And as bad luck would have it on the day of the 'Tidelands' QAGOMA event a surfer is attacked in the Australian state where Elsa Pataky lives, New South Wales -

But wait, there's more.
Remember this post I wrote about Elsa finding a snake in her home? -

Also, on the day of the QAGOMA event a brown snake was caught in the middle of Australia's capital city of Canberra, which is pictured on the cover of the 'QWeekend' magazine ... the city of Canberra, not the snake.

The critics haven't been too kind to the Netflix series, savaging it like a pack of sharks in the first reviews from what I have seen, and maybe with some justification.

While watching 'Tidelands' I couldn't help thinking that Charlotte was doing her best Katy Perry impression, especially in this scene below:-)
Could be a hit maybe?-)
Especially in the year of #MeToo:-)
I guess there's no rush though, a song like that could probably wait until next year.
