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.

I too was back a while ago and was sad. But no becasue I missed CMU (which I still have issues with), but I miss the energy and creative nature of a studio, and being able to work with friends that also loved design vs. people who just want a job to earn money.

I hope one day I find a job where people are that way again.

I have no idea what you're talking about being detached...unless it's the way you use big words and vague statements.


Joanne said that she tried to read my website some time ago but only understood half of the posts. I went from being very open 5 and a half years ago (yes I've been writing that long, and yes, I was totally there before it was cool and all you jerks jumped on the bandwagon) to being mostly detached these days.

I just flew back from Pittsburgh, and I stopped by the campus while I was there. Earlier today I was standing in the room where I decided it would be a good idea to buy "fuzzysquid.com". A lot has changed there, but even more hasn't. It will have been almost 10 years since I first stepped foot in that place, and this has been weighing heavily on my mind the last few weeks. I felt a lot of melancholy, being back. Which is why I made the visit brief. I drove by my old apartment, which has since burned down, but I didn't stop and get out.

The corner store where I used to buy cigarettes and condoms is now a Saab dealership.

I drove by all these apartment buildings and thought about all the people I knew who lived in them. ("Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.") I thought things like: I should have gone over there to use her record player like she said I could.
