In Galveston Today—Extinct Fish, Sea Monsters, Mermaids, Merbabies And Neptune

What do I hope to see and film in Galveston today when I go down to the island with my new Flip Camera to film some videos for this blog?

(Update–Here is the video I recorded in Galveston.)

Extinct sea beasts ( Here is information on prehistoric fish.)

Sea monsters  (Here are drawings of all types of sea monsters) —

Mermaids ( Here are mermaids from the American Museum of Natural History.) —

Mermaids with merbabies (Yep–That’s a real painting. By an Arnold Bocklin who lived from 1827 until 1901. Check out this one.)

And, of course, Neptune himself  (Here is a measure of information on Neptune.) —


Here are some things you might also see if you visit Galveston.

Thank you for reading Texas Liberal. Without the blog reading public, what is a blog?

  1. I think whenever the times decided to come up wit mermaids is the signs of beastiality. to try to imagine a fish lady? they are all topless yet reveal no genitals. its a weird kind of thing if you think about it. the painters all try to make these fish-woman beautiful with large breast and flowing hair. today they would have shaved heads and tattoo’s and still Its a pretty sick idea. lonely sailors having a sea mirage no doubt.

  2. My main thought is the blog traffic seeing these things would generate if I could get a picture.

  5. I’m basicly part fish. Go on to google.com and write if any one has spells to become a mermaid. something pops up that says- go in the shower and say magic mermaids of the deep, i would like a tail and not two feet. once i come out of the deep, have my feet return to me. next time you touch water, you turn into a mermaid. that’s what the computer said. i will try it.
