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.

"it looks like someone sat on the broccoli"-you



“I will make vinaigrette out of that shit” -M., referring to my glass of Samuel Adams Triple Bock, which despite the lager-style name is actually an ale. Well, actually, it's not so much an ale as it is a pungent syrup of doom. Entirely uncarbonated and without so much as a spittle-on-the-corner-of-your-mouth's worth of head, the bottle draws comparison to a vintage port or sherry (though it's most closely related to a barley wine, the inclusion of maple syrup as an ingredient changes things a bit), and The Samuel Adams people advise you to drink it as such—room temperature in a snifter, just a few ounces at a time. Heed their advice, as this "beer" weighs in at a heroic 17.5% alcohol by vol. So, what did I think? Well, I wouldn't call it undrinkable, as many others have. And I think characterizing it as having a 'soy sauce bouquet' is unfair. I do think M. is right; it's more acerbic than it is sweet, and it's more stong than it is anything else. I'd much rather drizzle it on a plate with olive oil and dip bread into it, than drink it. Because I can buy a nice bottle of port or sherry, and I'd much rather drink a bottle of Chocolate Bock if I wanted a beer at the extremes. (But on the other hand, this review makes me want to buy another bottle of the '97 and let it age some more.)
