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.

4-21-08  Archives
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!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

I'm currently withdrawing from anything that requires extended emotional commitment. For example, I don't have the patience, attention span, whatever, for reading new blogs anymore. And there are plenty out there that I know I would enjoy. I just can't be bothered to get involved. Just like I've been incapable of reading fiction, especially known good books, for the last few years. I just don't want to get involved. WTF? I don't want the journey, I just want the executive summary. It's like my emotional facilities are on vacation and they don't want to deal with any of that shit until they get home.

And now that I've written all that, I realize it isn't true at all. I seek involvement just like I always have, but I'm definitely avoiding something. Maybe I'm just fucking lazy, where exercising my sensitivity is the effort. I don't want to read good books because I will miss them when they are done. (Can you believe that?) My escape velocity for caring is too high.

Which reminds me of this ridiculous quote, which may not be relevant at all:

Catwoman star Sharon Stone told Rolling Stone magazine that the brain aneurysm that nearly killed her was actually a blessing in disguise because it significantly lowered her tolerance for bullshit.

"I'm at the point in my life where if you don't want my peaches, don't shake my tree," she said. "I'm into Happy Town, and if you don't want to live in Happy Town, move, hit the friggin' bricks, baby."
(emphasis mine)
