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.

1-14-05  LJ images
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.

here's a perfect example of how graphic design is an easy indicator of the relative health of your company/product. omniweb 4.1 was released recently, with a brand new icon. here's the old one. sweet merciful crap. i can't even imagine how that decision was made. i don't think it's a coincidence that omniweb is now a moot product, with mozilla ready for primetime. ah... now my policy of not using software with sucky icons doesn't seem so silly eh? oh, and ps, i've made a small exception for mozilla, which i've replaced with a custom icon.

"My mom once told me she didn't want me to start dating until I was married." haven't read girls-suck in a long time cus... i haven't needed to. but there's usually some oddly profound thing hidden in the posts. (they're not that bad. but baths are much better.)

oh, and inky apologizes for the text-heaviness of the site recently. more photos soon!

i got my haircut on thursday, and i just realized it's awful. i've been making fun of fletcher and magnani about their haircuts, so i guess there's a lesson in here somewhere. mainly, reaping what you sow sucks. oh well. i didn't want to be seen in public for the next two weeks anyway.

on my way home today i saw a large-ish black woman with an equally large and throaty voice in the subway station singing "oops i did it again." i don't believe i've ever liked that song more than i do right now.

i had a dream that i went to the museum of modern art to purchase a bag of jalapeno chips. because as everyone knew, that's where the best ones are sold. on display were giant charcoal drawings of hand studies, first year stuff. except they weren't very realistic hands. the fingers looked like perfect cylinders. and the shading was the opposite of what it should have been. a girl behind me gushed. i bumped into lisa lee who was sitting by a popcorn stand where a docent was giving a demonstration on how they make potato chips.

last night i dreamed i was on the staten island ferry. i was wearing pants, shoes and a button down shirt. a man on the PA system apologized for being off schedule, and announced that we would be taking an alternate route. we arrived in a very very short amount of time, but not at a dock. we kind of just ran aground and people started getting off. at this point i disembarked too, but sans shirt and shoes. i realized this because the sand on the beach was dirty. i ran back inside the boat fighting the stream of passengers going in the other direction. it was then that i realized that not only were the skipper and crew watching me, but the delay and deviation was in fact part of a sinister plan to relocate citizens! i played it cool, but they knew that i knew. i stayed on the boat to take the return trip, expecting i would have to hide from or fight the crew. but they seemed blasť about the whole thing ("why wouldn't you want to go back? there's really good shopping."). in the end i couldn't decide which fate would be better, exile or outlet malls.

i woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep because of the damn birds! birds! why are there birds chirping at four in the morning? noisy beggars...

i was dreaming that i was a miner on mars and i had to arrange piles of dirt with a brush. the brush wasn't working very well so i switched to one of those wooden rakes that zen buddhist monks tend their rock gardens with. then my boss came in and wanted to fire the clown we had hired to keep us entertained. that jerk.

yes! i just found a cd of mine that had been lost since the summer of 1999. it's the soundtrack to the movie "the avengers." yeah shut up. i've found that the worse a movie is, the better chances are that it has a good soundtrack. but really, the only track i need to mention to prove this is: Grace Jones - Storm. awesome. AND it's one of the few pre-car-theft-music-loss catastrophe-of-2000 albums i have left so. yeah.

i had the dream again where my teeth are falling out. i have this dream frequently, and the only thing that is different between each occurence is which teeth, and how many of them, and whether or not i'm successful in shoving them right back in.

i just went to starbucks, my first time in about 4 months. i was really only going to get a doughnut, but i got suckered into buying a coconut mocha frappuchino. i think I'm going to have a seizure. i'm literally twitching.

are those things critical? here's a more clearheaded summary now that i've clamed down a bit.

the government wants me to give up my privacy and constitutionally protected freedoms so that it may protect me better. nevermind that what ultimately caused the attacks in the first place have not been addressed, and neither has the real reason for the failure of the government on 9/11 (how does it make sense that they want broader powers to collect information if they can't even handle what they've already got?).

the media conglomerates want me to give up my fair use rights and have total control over what under current law i already OWN. they want to dictate the terms to me on how, when, and where i may use what i have purchased. if i back up my dvd collection (which i have legal right to) i would be violating the DMCA and be considered a terrorist under federal law.

so the answer is, no, it's not critical. i have plenty to eat and shelter over my head. but not much else to make me say "god i love this country." okay. rant over.

dannyboy 8:56 AM (0)


i'm angry today... i'm trying to figure out how to express it in a way that hasn't been done so many times before... i'm angry about where the world is going. i'm tired of my rights being violated, online and in the real world. i'm tired of slapping my forehead every time i read about the MPAA and/or the RIAA, how we're criminals if we assert our fair-use rights, or how the government is telling people that if they smoke pot they're terrorists, etc. every year i get less excited about the wonderful things our future is supposed to hold because, really, the ridiculous dystopian predictions of my childhood aren't so ridiculous anymore. it's all a mess. i stopped watching the news a long time ago because it made me too angry, and now i'm going to have to stop reading slashdot et al for the same reason.

whenever i post about my dreams it's because i woke up in the middle of the night. that's the only way i remember. last night i dreamed i was skiing in switzerland with shirley. but i just kept on going, through most of europe, right down to italy. and then i was in upstate new york, but i was snowboarding now. i must have been going pretty fast because pretty soon i was in manhattan... heading straight into the hudson! i fell in, and some kids laughed at me.

i did not have an interesting dream last night, but my coworker jay did. he dreamed that he was having a lightsaber battle with me and i cut off his fingers. then he cut off mine. and then we were playing with our severed fingers, arranging them in pretty patterns on his desk, and having a good time of it.
