A Historic Tail

The Weeki Wachee Springs State Park mermaid show in Florida is seventy years old! In an article found at Smithsonian Magazine, we learn more about the history of the show. The article contains a number of great photos, some from as far back as the late 1940s when the shows began.

"Today, they’re never seen in the water without their tails, but in the early days of the show, 'mermaids' often performed in nothing but a swimsuit and flippers."

Thank you, Kat Eschner and The Smithsonian, for the informative article.

Gifts for Mermaid Fans

Have a few mermaid fans on your gift list? Looking for something special for yourself? A recent article at Islands features ten gifts for mermaid fans.

"Straighten your seashell bra and get ready to shop. From tails to tables, we've rounded up the 10 best gifts for the mermaid lover in your life."

The Mermaid Tail Blanket will come in handy on those cold January evenings while you are munching on seaweed tortilla chips. On an unrelated note, I have tried seaweed chips and did not become a fan. You have been warned.

Underwater Restaurant

Join me now as Stylist UK introduces us to the world's first underwater restaurant, featuring seafood of course.

"Quite possibly the most realistic mermaid dining experience yet, the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is an enchanting eatery which has been completely submerged in water."

How often do you get to dine 16-feet below sea level?

Sessa Nulma

I was playing music last weekend from an Enya inspired channel on Amazon Music. One song in particular caught my attention, 'Sessa Nulma' by David Arkenstone and Charlee Brooks.

The title of the song looked like words from the Mermish dialect we use in Second Life. This is the one by Francine Rose from her book, The Secret World of Mermaids. If that were true, then the title of the song would mean, 'Mermaid Love'.

So, I paid a visit to Metro Lyrics, and found the song entitled, "Sessa Nulma (Mermaid Love)". Mermish may be more widely known than I thought!

A new tune to add to your mermaid playlist.

Large Mermaid Gathering

A big wave and splash to the Festival of the Sea, recently held in Bexhill, England. The goal of the festival was to set a new world record for the number of merfolk in one place. The number to beat was 300.

Was the group successful? Watch this short video on Buzzfeed to find out.

A friendly note to cell-phone videographers... Please, no more vertical videos.

Mermaids Excite

The Silverton Casino in Las Vegas, home of the 2011 mermaid convention, has a sizable aquarium. Mermaids can often be found swimming in the aquarium, posing for selfies and having a splashing good time.

Check out the video and photo collection found at the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Move Over Unicorn

Over at the Project Nursery blog by Katie Kavulla, we find out once again that unicorns are out, and mermaids are in.

"With this girly twist on nautical room decor, you can easily build an entire nursery around mermaids or just add a touch of this trend to your existing design."

Dive right in and decorate!

A Mermaid’s Tale

In a review found at OnScreen, Ben Halford does not give 'A Mermaid's Tale' high marks, although he really seems to want to.

"Oftentimes it’s clumsy and flawed to comical levels. But thankfully it’s also not appalling."

Read the review, which includes the movie's official trailer, and then decide for yourself. A Mermaid's Tale is available now on DVD, Blu_Ray, and digital download. Run-time is 1.5 hours.

Becoming a Mermaid

In an article found at Jezebel, staff writer Megan Reynolds takes us along as she becomes a mermaid 'to prove she knows how to swim'.

"Like all ideas that sound good at the time but are actually quite scary, my journey to become a mermaid started with a PR email."

The article includes a 3-minute video.
