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!)

Hell no!! What do you think I am made of? Money? It was 6:30 till 10:00 with 1000 rounds for me to use. I may be crazy but I ain't stupid.. Anyway it was worth it to see their faces when people with paintball guns worth over $1000 get shot out with my crappy rental gun. I love to laugh at 'em.

hm. yes, and you spent $75 for what, 1.5 hours of entertainment? give me half of that and i'll pummel you with pebbles for the whole day...

Ah..... paintball the true game of men. Running around in the woods, firing small hard projectiles from gun-like contraptions at each other, having to wear a mask so as not get be blinded, receiving pain for making a mistake, giving pain to those who make them. And when you wake up the next morning and hobble around from being sore and welted everywhere you know you have just re-affirmed your masculinity. Only thing that I didn't find welcome this morning was the mound of mud caked laundry I have to clean up now.

the best way to stop being attracted to women is to watch the discovery channel. they had a series on "beauty" the other night, and they showed video of women getting plastic surgery done. sweet merciful crap. i don't think i can look at another boob again after having seen it from the inside. stupid illegal cable...

they say that when someone does something awful to you, the best revenge is just to live well. when i was in grade school i would get picked on occasionally and there really wasn't anything for me to do but hope that some day, that kid would realize the immensity of his jerkiness, and his heart would shrivel up in grief for himself. it wasn't until college that i realized, god put powdered laxative and brownie mix on the earth for a reason.

e-mail's back. internet on the mac is not. on an unrelated topic, sometimes the love you take does not equal the love you make.

yesterday around 4 pm god smote my computer. i was online during a thunderstorm, and when lightning struck a nearby telephone pole. i was pretty surprised. as of this morning, i had gotten over the toasting of my modem, and i was resigned to spending the $80 to buy a new one... but i then discovered for some odd reason that my palm wouldn't sync to the computer... it was a quiet sort of calamity when i realized that my computer had really been fucked sideways. in addition to the modem,all the serial ports had been fried and god knows what else. so i have to either spend $60 a month for cable internet (and hope my 10bT still works), or... get a new mac. and until then, no e-mail... of course, disaster always comes in threes, but i think i'll keep the other two to myself...

wendy took me to work this morning. she teaches 7th grade at a school in the south bronx. i thought the hardest part would be getting up at 6am, but well... it wasn't the case. really incredible experience, but i'm truly glad that's not what i do. to unwind after school we took a walk through fort tryon park, where we came across the burned out carcass of a nissan altima. (if you remember, like this except in nyc, in a less accessible spot, and imagine that the car blew up) it still smelled of chemical burn, and when we looked closer (after some coaxing; some people are afraid of heights, wendy is afraid of finding dead bodies) the frame was tagged with a parks dept. sticker dated this morning.

i am sad for other reasons. "If killing McVeigh does not bring peace or closure to them, I suggest to you that it is our fault," said Robert Nigh, who witnessed his client's death with colleague Nathan Chambers. "We have made killing a part of the healing process." there's something dreadfully wrong with America. i don't feel that way because of what Timothy McVeigh did; it's what the federal government, the media, and the masses of misguided people that live in this country do every day.

today's a very sad day for me... my favorite poem (some of you might know what it is) has been defamed and used out of context. the poem "invictus - by william ernest henley" was quoted by timothy mcveigh as his last words before death... here is the entire poem: OUT of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

went to my brother's high school graduation yesterday, and i realized oh how good it is to still be a kid... as the commencement speaker was passing on some hard life-truths (and as all the proud adults, including me was nodding in agreement), the graduates were too busy playing with their tassles to be listening... and that's exactly what i remember from my high school graduation, absolutely nothing.

one of the reasons i miss school so much was the support of having a creative community immediately at hand... it wasn't all care-bears and rainbows--sometimes it was really really lonely--but there i was around people who more or less cared about the same things i do. i think i really need to start working soon, not because i need money, but because i need another community...

i hate the web so much it hurts. there ought to be a circle of hell set aside for webmasters who think its okay to make someone download a 400K file of HTML for every page of their site.

4 am last night, out bowling in jersey city for some insane reason, saw this middle aged indian man just hanging around, staring in one direction the whole night. he had his beer bottle for a while, i guess because it was after last call at the bar and he must have been in there previously, but he just kept standing there, looking away. it really unsettled me. whenever i see mentally unbalanced people, i worry that one day i'll end up like that. just plain old crazy. all the stories i've heard...it's a fine line i think. i look at people and i think at any moment, they can just go. must have been why i didn't break 100 all night.
