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.

too funny.


OOOHH, I have a new hate for you. It annoys me when I hear people use the term "foodie" to describe people who care about what they eat, but I DESPISE it when people self-identify with that term. No fuckface, you're not a "foodie," you're just another twenty-three year old girl who moved to the big city and suddenly has access to something besides the Sizzler in the next town over, and HAS to write about every goddamn meal you've had on Yelp*. You're also the type of girl to give a restaurant a poor rating because you got a stomachache after eating some dairy, even though YOU'RE the one who's lactarded. No wait, I guess you ARE a "foodie."

Everyone who's ever used this term to describe themselves, get in line for cock/vagina punches.

*Yelp is currently one of the most useless sites on the web because 75% of the reviews start with "Dear Diary, today I had dinner at..." and end with "...and that's why my best friend and I stopped speaking to each other in the 7th grade."

Update: I'm going to go ahead and head off any hate mail at the pass and say that the above rant really isn't about people I hate, it's about the word. I hate the word "foodie." It looks dumb, it sounds dumb, and I feel dumber having it uttered in my presence. "Foodie" is like the web 2.0 version of gourmand or epicure; it's not better than what it replaced, it just has a smug (and incorrect) sense of relevance about it. The other issue is, those three words actually do mean different things.
