Entertainers With a Tail


On September 10th, CNN ran an article by Katherine Dorsett Bennett entitled, Mermaids: Entertainers With a Tail. This entertaining article tells you where to go in the US to find mermaid entertainers. Locations include the Sip 'n Dip Lounge in Montana and the Wreck Bar in Florida. As you may remember, The Wreck Bar is the home of Aquatic Performer MeduSirena (see photo). I had the pleasure of interviewing MeduSirena back in April of this year.

Also mentioned in the article is the Silverton Casino in Las Vegas, which was the home of the 2011 Mermaid Awards and Convention. Mermaids are a regular attraction there, and the primary theme of the hotel and casino.

At the end of the article, Ms. Bennett invites you to send in your theme bar recommendations.

Tail Flip Magazine

The third edition of the online mermaid themed magazine, Tail Flip, is now available. As they say, the magazine is 'for the mer-community, and by the mer-community'. A big splash of thanks to Raina the Halifax Mermaid for putting together another great issue.

This issue contains a number of cool photos from MerPalooza 2012 on pages 10 and 11. There are also book reviews, an interview with artist David Ayala, and interviews with mermaids Lanai and Raven.

Tweets and Splashes

A recent visit to Twitter has proven that mermaids are still a very popular subject there. In this one short visit I collected quite a few amusing tweets:

"Lost my brush and had to use a fork to comb my hair. I felt like the Little Mermaid but older..."

"In case you're wondering, my 10yo and 4yo agree that a unicorn would beat a mermaid in a fight. Unless the fight was underwater."

This one was posted by one of the other many mermaids on Twitter:
"If I had to choose between dating a human boy and keeping my tail, I would choose my tail."

"Convince the rubes on this passing cargo ship that you're a mermaid by wearing seashells and refusing all offers of rescue."

"I panic like a mermaid stuck in a puddle."

It is great to see folks that plan ahead:
"Today: cleaned room, won a Lakers cape, planned film shoot. Still To Do: Go to airport, bible study, put a mermaid in a fountain."

"Always be yourself. Unless you can be a mermaid. Then always be a mermaid."

"Walked in on my 8 year old sister rubbing salt water on her legs. I ask why. Her response: I'm trying to turn into a mermaid. No words."

"Retweet if u r a mermaid."
So I did!

Best wishes and starfishes,
