Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Welcome to DailyKos' second annual liveblog of the television movie disaster/disaster movie Sharknado. This year's sequel is the cleverly-named Sharknado II: The Second One. The movie begins at 9PM Eastern on the Syfy Network. As we did last year, we're going to give the movie the MST3K treatment in the comments and through updates in the diary.

Now that Syfy is aware of how many people love how cheesy the movie is, expect it to be twelve times hokier than the first Sharknado movie.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

9:01 Fin and April are married now. (Again? Isn't that his ex?) She wrote a book called How to Survive a Sharknado. They're flying to New York for a signing. I wonder if they're going to see another sharknado?

9:03 They're flying through a storm and Fin is having a panic attack. Fear not, Fin. Sharks don't happen at 32,000. OR DO THEY?

9:04 They do.

9:05 Airplane! reference with the chicken/fish thing.

9:08 THE SHARK BURST THROUGH THE CABIN AND ATE THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT. I am never flying United again.

9:11 Summary of the dialogue so far: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH."

9:13 The Sharknado theme song is now the theme song of my life.

9:20

9:28 So many cameos. So many sharks.

9:31 "What's the inside of a shark smell like? I always thought it'd smell like...chicken."

9:35 "The game has been cancelled due to the snow."
*sharknado hits Shea Stadium*

9:37 I've been informed that the Mets don't play in Shea Stadium anymore. I'm still living in 2008. I can't wait to see what Michael Jackson does with his career!

9:48 The answer to the question "what was that noise?" is always "shark."

10:01 The Statue of Liberty's head just rolled down the street Indiana Jones-style. This is Obama's America.

10:06 The movie became iconic when deli owner Biz Markie casually stabbed the shark and threw it in the pizza oven.

10:19 Taxi driver died. Rude.

10:27

10:30 Friendly reminder that slingshotting bombs from the roofs of buildings in New York City is not recommended.

10:33 THE SHARKS ARE ON FIRE NOW OH SWEET BABY JESUS

10:45 You can try to be cool but you'll never be "Fin standing on top of a fire truck while slicing a shark in half with a chainsaw" cool.

11:01 And the movie ends with a marriage proposal, covered in shark blood and gore. The end. Until next summer when Sharknado III comes out.

This was fun, thanks for sticking around everyone! See you next summer.
