Punk for Mermaids, plus "Freedom Watch"

If you need something liberating to do in between watching the second episode of Freedom Watch on Fox Business Network at 10am Eastern today and then watching it again at 8pm (or Sunday 7pm and 11pm), I notice that the King Neptune and Queen of the Mermaids at this year’s Coney Island Mermaid Parade (today at 2pm) will be revered New York couple Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson.  (Can Mermaids pogo?)

And my mom watched Freedom Watch’s premiere last weekend three times, so I don’t want to hear anyone whining that twice is excessive.  She’s a veritable Freedom Watch watch.  And in today’s you get Glenn Beck, John Stossel, Dennis Kucinich, and a panel including Nick Gillespie to boot, so maybe your mom should watch three times.

P.S. I realize King Neptune is more proto-punk than punk and the Queen of the Mermaids is technically No Wave, but close enough.

P.P.S. Speaking of sea-dwellers (such as the folks at the Seasteading Institute), I read online that in DC Comics, a recently-resurrected Aquaman has waged a battle in recent months against zombie fish he accidentally summoned with his telepathy — a narrative that bares a disturbing resemblance to the deliberately-stupid plotline I suggested for that character in a blog post three months ago.
