Thematic Static under the sea: marine life

Inspo for today’s #ThematicStatic came from the ocean aquarium Phish created inside Madison Square Garden on Friday (here‘s a high-def 23-minute video if you have the appetite for that kind of thing). As spring creeps to summer, I’m also thinking about a beach trip, though the deep sea freaks me out.
