The Immortal King of New York

I lost him today.

So, I suppose he wasn’t immortal.

The film of course is, but Frank wasn’t.

I should probably clarify what I mean by this. One of my goldfish was named after Christopher Walken’s character in the movie, Frank White.

I know that a lot of people, when a fish dies, just flush it or bury it or something, but I’m having a very difficult time deciding how best to deal with his death. A few people may think this is a rather strange thing, but for me, my fish are a huge part of me, and I am very attached to them. So having one of them die is a devastating moment for me.

I tried, I really tried to do all I could to make him better, but whatever it was that took him struck fast and there was pretty much no time in which I could actually do anything to help him.

Of course, this doesn’t make it any less painful for me.

All I can truly hope for now is that the others aren’t too saddened by the loss of their brother, I mean I expect them to be saddened, but I am hoping not so much that they fall ill themselves.

To give you guys an idea though, I’ll give you a run down.

Big Tank.

– Lemon ‘The Whale’ Monsterfish – Lemon Goldfish

– Golled II – Regular Goldfish

– Lips ‘Tick’ – Regular Goldfish

– Comet – Black Comet

– Forehead – Redcap Oranda

– Marsellus Wallace – Shubunkin

– Al Capone – Ryukin

– Whiskers – Spotted Weather Loach

Small Tank

– Pomegranate – Siamese Fighter

– Snap, Crackle, Pop – Clown Loaches

– Tom Hanks – Flying Fox

Some of these may seem like rather strange names, but I acquired each fish at a separate time, so wasn’t thinking of a particular pattern, and for some the names match the colour, or the type of fish.

For example, my Flying Fox is named Tom Hanks, because he played the character Joe Fox in You’ve got mail. The Fox matches.

Pomegranate is named as he is because of his colouring.

And when I saw Al Capone in the shop I named him so because he was being territorialĀ in a tactical way, something I had not seen a fish do before.

Anyway I guess that’s it for now.

See ya




In the words of GlaDOS, “It’s been a long time. How have you been?”

The last time I posted anything on here was over a month ago, and I’ve been meaning to come back on-line and say something else, It just, kinda hasn’t happened.

There have been a few times when I have had something on my mind to post, but most often it’s been when I’ve been out and about, or just in a really bad mood, and I don’t want this to just become an outlet for when I am upset, although I admit it is useful for that purpose.

So, without further ado, a few quick and meaningless updates.

– I recently went away for a week, down to near Lands End, got a few nice pictures and also got a little burnt. But more importantly, saw two of the most beautiful coast scenes I have ever seen. St Ives, and Lands End itself. St Ives has a beauty that I honestly don’t think can be compared to anything else I have ever seen. The buildings aren’t on the coastline, they are almost a part of it. I can’t even do it justice with words. Lands End was also incredible to look at, though in a different way, as it is mostly cliff.

– I have also written three short stories recently, which I plan on entering into a competition within the next few days. I don’t want to say much about them as they have to be unpublished and so on, you understand. But I will say who the protagonists are. Story One, the protagonist is an Elevator. Story Two, the protagonist is a Subconscious. And Story Three, the protagonist is a Painting. Once the competition has ended I will probably post them up here.

– I am still tinkering around with my recording and editing software, as myself and a couple of buddies have decided to use our gaming time slightly more productively, and share it with those of the on-line community who are interested in watching. At the moment I am still trying to find an editing software I can work with, as I am not exactly the most literate person when it comes to computers.

– In conjunction with the above statement, I am in the throws of linking together all of my different pages and accounts and so forth. Linking this Blog with my Deviantart account, and my hopefully upcoming Twitter and Youtube, as I want this to all be linked and easily transverse-able.

Nothing else particularly springs to mind that I need to update you all on.

If anything comes to mind though of course I will attempt to be prompt in informing you all. And if I can get around to it I plan on actually posting on here frequently again.

Stay Frosty
