The City Wants a Statue at White Rock, and I Have the Only List of Candidates They Need

Joe Tone’s blog has the story. I won’t bother HuffPo-ing them on it. Go read, then come back. I’ve set up the list with a juicebox and a Phineas & Ferb rerun after the jump, so no rush.

Obvious choice, the Kraken from 1981's Clash of the Titans. But definitely not the one from the remake. That can eat rocks. Anyway, it would probably scare away all the GD squirrels from over there, if nothing else.

It's the statue from Lost. Or you could just do the foot, like when the Losties first saw it. Either way, serious geek cred. You'd get, like, at least a portion of that Comic-Con audience, if you played your cards right. I only like playing my cards right, by the way.

Again, an obvious choice. But I can only support this if it is in this pose. Nothing else. No added uniform number, nothing.

It's Chris O'Donnell as the impetuous Robin in Batman & Robin, after being frozen solid by Mr. Freeze. I'd put it over by Winfrey Point -- maybe have his arms extending out over the water? just spitballing, no tied to anything -- and be done with it. You're welcome, Kendall Ferguson, Dallas public art coordinator.
