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!)

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.

wtf...is that dwarf sqeezing crap out of his beard? Am I drinking beard juice?


No, he's picking the sweet sweet barley from which Our Precious is brewed!


ok, really...beer sucks. You need to review powdered fruit drinks. Start with Tang, then move through a few Kool-aids, crystal lights.


oh, and go back to the old comment system. This one is killing me! ..or find a new cooler one.


What's wrong with this comment system!



An "Artisanal" golden ale made in the Ardennes by Belgian gnomes (chouffes). (In America, we don't have beer-making gnomes in the mountains; we have cookie-baking elves toiling under sweatshop conditions in east LA. But that's neither here nor there.) A sweet, floral, champange-like noise that quiets over time. Sweet, smooth and citrus-cinnamony body with a spicy but not overpowering finish. If you're not used to Belgian beers, you'll be surprised at its lack of maltiness and hoppiness, which is an either/or proposition in most beer; La Chouffe is something else entirely. This smoothness, common among Belgian ales, belies the high specific gravity of the beer (8% ABV); there is no harshness from the alcohol at all. There are many things right with this beer, but the best part by far, is the theme song!

Best served in a wide-mouthed chalice, with Belgian frites. I wasn't aware that gnomes still exist, but god bless their stubby, beer-making hands. Vivre La Chouffe!
