Dec 23rd, 2016: Asian Love

Asia, where men marry pillows and girls get ravished by tentacles, has some strange (to me) love affairs.

Arakawa has been looking after an underwater Shinto shrine located in Tateyama Bay for over a quarter
of a century, also acting as a guide for tourist who want to visit it. During that time, he has become
unusually close with a giant friendly fish who comes to greet him whenever he calls. All he has to do is
call – by knocking with a hammer on a piece of metal – and the fish shows up.
They’ve been friends for 25 years now, and Hiroyuki has even named the fish Yoriko.
Maybe she turns into a beautiful mermaid when nobody else is around?

Hiroyuki, who runs a local diving shop, has been documenting his friendship with the Asian sheepshead
wrasse on Facebook. Yoriko shows up in nearly every photo taken near the Shinto shrine in the diver’s
care, and sometimes even poses for the camera. Their relationship has become a tourist attraction in itself,
with people asking for diving sessions just to see the two unlikely friends bonding and playing.
Bonding and playing? Um... LGTBQWrasse?

Everything is interesting... look closer.

I study wildlife for fun and have since around about the mid-1970s.

Trust me, that dude is NOT the weirdest thing about that wrasse's sex life. Nope nope nope. Fish are WEIRD, and tropical reef species often fly a pretty big 'freak flag'.

"Mask" is one of my favorite movies.
See it if you haven't or see it again if you have.
