Voice Magazine No. 7 : Kingston through Afflicted Eyes

The main tank called the ‘Kuroshio Sea’ holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

John Hinckley Jr. version…”blah!”

About the first one (sent to me by the Jeepbastard himself, John Lee):

The classic dancing scene from Jean-Luc Goddard’s crime comedy Bande a Part. It so impressed Quentin Tarantino that he named his movie production company, “A Band Apart”, after the film and referenced it in Pulp Fiction. Goddard later said that he would much rather Tarantino had just given him a lot of money instead.
