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!)

i'm sure someone's said it before, but i'll say it too—our lives are like movies, in that continuity is an illusion. 24 frames per second on celluloid; it only works if our memory of each picture immediately preceding persists. people who forget, are typically blissful, but perhaps always on the verge of something horrible.

last night i dreamed that i had stumbled into a forgotten cache of half-eaten snack foods. but they were very unusual snack foods. (e.g., filled tacos in the shape of large fortune cookies) i knew that they were very old, but apparently they were ok to eat, as the expiration date on everything was in the year 3000.

?You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realise that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all... Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing... (I can only wait for the final amnesia, the one that can erase and entire life, as it did my mother's...)?

—Luis Buñuel

so why is it then that i wish to forget everything that's happened to me?

well, we're all doomed (again). this time, it'll be Feb 2019. Ohh... but I wanna be crushed now! as jay says, "i wish it would just hurry up and end our misery already." personally, i can't wait for all that armageddon lovin'

once again, sloppy squid reporting from CNN. any marine biologist worth his salt can tell you giant squid don't eat (sperm) whales, it's the other way around...

i went to the apple store in soho today, and who else but steve "give me $100/yr" jobs was present for the grand opening. but of course i didn't have my camera with me. i'm proud to report he looks like an even bigger jerk in person. there wasn't anything special about the store, other than the hundreds of people packed in there. the oft-mentioned all-glass staircase elicited a mere "meh" from me. damn but i want the new iPod.

true porn clerk stories. a mix of the hilarious and the creepy, with surprising bits of insight. makes me wonder what would've happened if all those porno jobs i applied to (producing, not acting. ahem) actually got back to me.

the house (otherwise known as the stupid place) voted with an overwhelming majority on monday to create a new punishment of life imprisonment for "malicious hackers." riight. so the 14 yr old geek-savant gets life, and how many years do crooked CEOs get? oh, don't worry, that comes along with a nice big side of no-more-due-process. welcome to the land of the free.

i had a dream this morning in the 10 minutes between the time i hit snooze and the 5th time my alarm went off. in my dream i was in a summer camp (though i have never been to a summer camp) taking a shower in the communal bathroom, but i couldn't stay awake. there were several attractive women also bathing, and i probably would've been embarrassed if i didn't keep falling asleep.

obviously, i was late for work this morning.

loriloo went crazy and updated her site with two months worth of photos. (now you can see just how good her seats at the world cup were. lucky ducky.) worth the wait, needless to say.

julie has always been an unusually good friend, doting over me in my times of need (and only with just the slightest bit of solicitation), near to my heart and dear as the apple of my eye. did i mention she's hot?

i don't want to know anything about anything. again. i'm in one of those moods where i'm angry at the world for things that i can't change. am i alone in this? my desire to disconnect from what everyone's saying? i don't want to watch any more tv, or read the "news", or surf anyone's blog. the mainstream and the "alternative" are both worthless. they're all selling something i'm not least bit interested in. god!

how is it that i want to be stimulated more than anything else, but i loathe the majority of the content and ideas out there? or lack of, perhaps.
