  1. Your whale reference is wrong. Those are two humpback whales by the golden gate bridge, from star trek iv.

  2. Fall 2022
    The black baloon is not a reference to It. If it was for It the baloon would be its notable red.
    The black baloon is a reference to the Black Phone. The kidnapper used black baloons

  3. Nautical Theme
    You missed Scuttle with the fork near the advertising next to the giant squid, spongebobs pineapple just before the underwater building from the abyss not sure if the hermit crab is Sebastian from the little mermaid only because there is more than one lol. Anybody know what the glowing eyes bear the treasure is? Or if the glowing “jellyfish” is part of the Abyss Easter egg?

    1. @Aley, I’ve already included Scuttle in the Little Mermaid reference before. However, after a while keeping searching for the pineapple house, I finally made it. Thanks for your hint about Spongebobs.

  4. In one of the planters, two of the little white bug guys from hollow knight can be seen sticking the tops of their heads out.

  5. What about the paddlewheel with all the lights on, in the foreground of the river? It was in an older one – not sure which – but, its just appeared in my Roku cityscape, August 2023. The old musical “Showboat”, maybe? I’m not sure what else it could be.
