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!)

well, my pee usually smell like hazelnut.


You might want to see a doctor about that...


dkuo: why does my pee smell like coconut
dkuo: and how can I keep doing it
Rockemstock: what am I going to do with that information?
dkuo: savor it.

This is AMAZING! I want the soundtrack.


It's the little details that make me happy. Like the little zombie babies bursting out of the pregnant zombie women. And the RealDoll cannon, or whatever that was.


There's quite a bit of awesome in Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006, a 112 MB mpeg demo of a black & white side scrolling beat'em-up that doesn't exist. Inky wants me to say that he especially likes the ending. ( That site is getting hammered right now, you might have to refresh or try back later. It's worth it. )

Today is the 100th anniversary of the great 1906 earthquake. Thousands of people gathered at Lotta's Fountain at 5AM this morning. I missed it. :(

“Let's go out and have a good time—the bars open at 6," Conroy exhorted the early morning crowd. "We should raise a toast to the incredible spirit of San Francisco.”

yr dumb


I've had the very same dream in which I spend endless minutes attempting to remove what seems like an endless supply of putty-like chewing gum from my mouth. It's disgusting. And then I finally wake up with a pillow soaked in drool. However, I never had braces so I don't think that is the correlation. I believe we both need therapy.


I have the same dream. The gum is usually a disgusting pea green color, and it starts sliding down the back of my throat, and it tastes HORRIBLE. Then I try to pull it out of my throat, and it just keeps coming and coming and coming. Gross.


I thought I didn't like gum but then I remembered that I don't so much dislike it as I have recurring nightmares about it. In my dreams I will be chewing a piece, for so long that it starts to disintegrate in my mouth. It's a mess and sticks to everything so that I can't get it all out. This is just one in a series of mouth trauma dreams that keeps me grinding my teeth at night—all thanks to the excruciatingly painful braces I had when I was a kid.

er yah that and they require child labour/very old people to shell the nuts.


People, the key to chocolate is salt.

Also, the cashew is the best nut of them all. And the reason why they're so expensive, apparently, is because each nut grows on the tree inside a fruit that is the size of my baby nephew's head and it takes 50 years for each fruit to mature. Or something. (Judy came back from Kenya with an hour's worth of slides, and I drifted.)

If my website had categories, this would be filed under "GOD I'M GETTING FAT"

The little old lady ahead of us in line was buying: a box of tissues, a bottle of scotch, and a candy bar. Awesome.

But then later that night your mother would have to describe the battle between the fuzzy squid and the whale.


"rawr!" - the t.rex that never gets old



One of the reasons why I like the Natural History museum is because I, like Holden Caulfield, find reassurance in the exhibits that haven't changed since I was 10.

Me: I need one of these, badly
Brian: A banana sighting, or a banana costume?
Me: a banana costume
Me:I think that would be a good way to get out of jury duty
Brian: ooh good call
Me: show up dressed like a banana and answer every question with "it's peanutbutter jelly time!!"
Brian: and dance
Me: they didn't select me for the jury yesterday
Me: I am disappointed
Brian: why
Me: jury duty is like a little vacation, at the end of which, you decide someone's fate
Me: I like judging people.

gasp! it wasnt my business card was it? did i even give you one? or was i too busy barraging you about what a visual designer is??


No, it was a card from a bar, the Dove. I don't imagine your business cards are printed on construction paper.

And no, you didn't give me one!


well no they aren't.

i'd be seriously pissed off, not to mention perplexed as to where all the fucking money goes to instead of making swanky coporate stationery.

i could erm fax you one?


I was pretty bummed out for most of yesterday because I pinkified an entire load of clothes when I left a red business card in my shirt pocket. I have two points to make about this:

1) Please don't print your business cards on cheap, colored stock
2) It's actually kind of awesome how a random NYC bar was able to ruin my laundry
