Friday LinkFrogging - 8/17/18
Kids, if you're looking for a sign that we have entered the end times, you need look no further than this week.

First, Aretha Frankin, the Queen of Soul and one of, if not "the," greatest voices of all time passed away.

Secondly, a sixth Sharknado movie debuts on SyFy this weekend.

Let's talk about Ms. Franklin first.

Blues mixed with R&B and filtered through the gospel music of her youth.  Ms. Franklin took these disparate influences and came up with a musical concoction that was uniquely her own.  Her career spanned decades and generations.  She was, in short, a force of nature.

Rest in Piece Ms. Franklin.  Nothing but respect.

And speaking of forces of nature (please forgive me), do we really need a sixth Sharknado movie?  Well, I mean, I know Ian Ziering and Tara Reid to, but the rest of us?  Isn't the joke pretty much played out.

I read that this one will involve time travel, so kudos to The Asylum and SyFy for figuring out a way to run amok in the time stream.  Still, if Sharknados had been an issue throughout time don't you think we'd have gotten a cave painting, a hieroglyph, a sonnet, a message in a bottle?  Something?  Anything.

I started to feature Tara Reid as the cheesecake this week, but I care for you all too much.

Instead, please say hello to another member of the Sharknado family, Masiela Lusha.

As I was looking through the Sharknado credits, (yes...I actually did that), I stumbled upon Ms. Lusha's name.  She plays Gemini in the series.  I vaguely remember thinking "Hey she looks familiar" during one of the movies.

Turns out I was right.

Ms. Lusha is also remembered for playing George Lopez's precocious teenaged daughter, Carmen, for six seasons on The George Lopez Show.

The rest of her filmography is even less impressive than those two entires, so let's just leave it there and move on.

Let's hit the links.
