Not our idea of a fun night out


Frozen Tootsies may be one of the few bloggers who does not claim to give a fuck about the environment.  Well, except as it affects her own personal comfort. 

So it’s no surprise that Frozen Tootsies was not excited to receive an invitation to a special screening of this movie:

Once known as the “California Riviera,” the Salton Sea is now called one of America’s worst ecological disasters: a fetid, stagnant, salty lake, coughing up dead fish and birds by the thousands. Yet a few hardy eccentrics hang on to hope, including a roadside nudist waving at passing European tourists, a man building a religious mountain out of mud and paint, beer-loving Hungarian Revolutionary Hunky Daddy, and the real-estate “Ronald McDonald” known simply as The Landman. Through their perceptions and misperceptions, the strange history and unexpected beauty of the Salton Sea is revealed.

“Strange”?  You bet your fluffy little tail.  Frozen Tootsies does not plan to waste an evening looking for “unexpected beauty” in a film about a place that sounds like a total hellhole.  The armpit of the world.
