As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

went to the whitney biennial this afternoon. a few thoughts:

1. contrary to its roots in our species' development (i believe we all art. or we used to.), art in our society is, and will continue to be, understood and engaging for a very few people. i'm bothered by this, but frankly... i also kind of like it that way. i mean, what's the use of having something precious if you can't withhold it from others?

2. "computer art," or "web art" is a giant crock. or at least it becomes that when you put a frame around it and place it in a museum. actually, that holds true for any kind of art, really. if i were an artist, i'd be pissed if i ever made it into the whitney biennial. filthy rich, but pissed nonetheless.

3. ok, what the HELL are those secuity guards actually checking for when they make you open your bag? museums in nyc have only started doing this post- sept. 11, so i don't think they're looking for a hammer* or a giant magic marker. but the real point is, i could have been hiding all sorts of stuff in the bottom of my bag, where they didn't bother to look.

*there was a guy in europe a few years ago who made himself famous as an "artist" by going around to all the museums and hitting the sculptures with a hammer. awesome.
