Ike: You can put lipstick on a hurricane....?

Recommended Posts

Quote from guy on the Weather Channel:

[Houston] "They're just so populated, they're a disaster waiting to happpen".

Our new slogan, perhaps? :D

Quote from Ted Oberg (Channel 13)

[standing at about 30th and Seawall] Something to the effect of 'People who haven't evacuated here don't watch that much news'

[People surfing in background]

What's your media Ike-hype fun? I know you're watching :P

Joel Eisebaum from KPRC Channel 2 was interviewing some surfers a minute ago asking them if they knew that the Mayor of Galveston had declared a mandatory evacuation. One of the kids said that "he's not our mayor". Joel quickly informed them that the mayor was a "she" to which they both simultaneously replied "SO??"

lol..

During these press conferences that sign language lady always looks like she is confused and lost. no way she is translating all of that correctly. Reading her lips, she's telling a completely different story.

You think she is telling all the deaf people to evacuate to Pasadena as some sort of cruel practical joke?

No, something far less threatening - my expert lip reading skills detected something about doritos and an inner-tube. haha...the guy just said "...those of you who are hearing this are..." something something, and she totally stumbled at translating it and made a nice face.

during gustov the idiot geraldo (jerry rivers) rivera was out on the streets running around with a hand held anemometer :rolleyes:

I always love how the media gets out in the open in a storm to tell us how everyone around is going to die.....like the media has some kind of get out of death free card because they are the media :rolleyes:

Maybe we should all change our avatars to pictures of people in panic. Here are a few from Fark to get everyone started...

About 30 minutes ago, we saw a guy in a bear suit on the seawall in Galveston on KHOU. The reporter tried to ignore him, then told the camera to pan over for another shot of a pier breaking up. We were outraged. Piers break up in hurricanes; that's not news. Dude dressed like Booboo Bear in a hurricane - that's news!

We keep going back to see if they'll show the bear again, but no luck. Now we're worried. Did someone shoot him? Was he swept out to sea?

Anyone else get lost in Neil Frank's facial contours? Age and the sun have not been kind to him. Bolivar is apparently under water.

Either KHOU and KTRK are sharing a helicopter, or someone's tuned in to the wrong signal because they're both showing the same live helicopter video. KHOU's branding it "Air11," so it could be 11's chopper, but then when I worked at 11 the policy was to label ALL helicopter video "Air11" even if it wasn't our bird.

Nah...furries often have less/tighter clothing, I think.

I wonder if Bear-Man is a HAIF member...and which one?! :o
