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.

The sad thing is, it's not just the FCC. It's people in the US who call in and complain. God damn Bible belt.


Recently seen bumper sticker:

"I love my country... but I think we should start seeing other people."


ARRRGH! See! This is what happens everytime I look up. FUCK THE FCC. I hate people so much. I can't remember the last time I felt proud to be an American, but pretty much every day I feel shame about some new assbackwardry we've invented. I'm putting up a personal ad right after this post: Single American Male Seeks Sham Marriage with EU Citizen, No Fatties (Just Kidding, Glasgow!)

There is a really disgusting image on the lj images page. You may want to try to remove it.



Ugh. I don't have the wherewithal to even think about this nonsense. Do you have any idea how much grief the stupid LJ page has caused me over the years? Even though there are about 100 others exactly like it on the web, running the same exact feed?


I love the LJ page. And if you wait about 60-120 seconds and hit reload, chances are the disgusting image will be gone. Stop whining, it says "potentially very nsfw".


No, it was this dude with a specific agenda (not with me, I'm just a third party, this time) who had a script or something that was posting goatse every second, so that every few pics on the page was goatse.

That seems to have been sorted now, though.


I think the biggest thing that people are overlooking about the Mel Gibson DUI arrest is that he called the cop "sugar tits." SUGAR TITS. People are so wrapped up in the whole anti-Semetic rant that they are losing sight of SUGAR TITS. That was clearly the most awesome part about Mel Gibson's rant.


Oh, and the reason why I don't write about politics anymore, and the reason why half my posts are about food is because I don't like being angry and depressed and that's all that ever happens when I watch the news, and movies like Who Killed The Electric Car. Which by the way, was fairly good even though it was pretty heavy handedly pushing an obvious agenda. It didn't help their credibility that they interviewed a visibly psychotic Mel Gibson and Ralph 'Crazy Go Nuts' Nader.

You're all gonna be a bunch of fat asses soon. Maybe you should make a sequel to the documentary Supersize Me.


Oh, BTW, apparently the Gilroy Garlic Festival is a complete waste of time, and this is common knowledge to almost everyone in Northern California. I can now confirm this.


Mein gott, so much frying yesterday. I came home (after lunch at the Golden Gate Meat Company) to discover a frying party was taking place at my house. My house smells of frying and doggie. Ugh. How can I love both but be so disgusted by the aftermath of each?

They fried everything. There was even more tempura this time, a whole onion, cheese, cheese stuffed inside other things, on and on, but the only thing I really had room for was 4 or 5 pieces of fried candy bar.

And there was even talk of driving to Oakland for chicken & waffles last night at 1am. My heart thanks us for coming to our senses.

Off to the garlic festival!

by "we" do you mean you and your blog? I wasn't aware that blogs were able to ride bikes.


OMG, "we" totally means you and J.Ro and hadaly!!


You rode your bicycles to Michigan? In one go? You must have been using performance enhancing drugs. ADMIT IT!


I had a dream last night that we got on the highway and rode our bicycles to Michigan. When we got there, a heavy storm was closing in on the city, only a few miles away; but nevertheless the weather was calm. I was riding my bike in the middle of a gravel field near the off-ramp, popping wheelies, etc., when I noticed frenzied insect activity on the ground. All kinds of ants and beetles were swarming the ground trying to get food and whatnot before the storm arrived. I remember focusing on several dozen ants carrying a doomed caterpillar down their hole.

See what happens when you deep fry bacon!!

"Move over eggs, bacon just got a new partner....fudge!"


It's called seasoning! So everything tastes a little lardier! yummmmmmmmmmm!


Well, the Ukrainians have been onto this for years: chocolate covered lard



So I picked the hottest day this year to leave SF and go for a drive in Napa, only to discover that my AC doesn't work anymore. It was over 100 degrees outside, and even hotter inside my car. It's not so much that I thought I was going to die, as it is I wanted to die.

To cheer myself up on the hottest weekend of the year, I bought a deep fat fryer! I anticipate a long learning period before I figure out how to not give myself a stomach ache every time I use it.

Also, I may have gone a little overboard with the oil. I bought 35 lbs. of soybean oil from CostCo. J.Ro told me after the fact that you don't really change the oil in fryers very frequently. Well no matter, I spilled most of it on my kitchen floor on the first frying attempt.

Remember our chainsaw? haha, whew, awesome!


That was quite a scary moment in my life, going with you to see someone with used chainsaws for sale.


I don't even remember what that was for...


I think you found it on craigslist for 20 bucks and asked if I wanted to split it with you.

If we had any sense we should have scared magnani while he was sleeping with it. That would have been classic.



I now own a sword. Sam went to China and brought it back for me. Thanks Sam. I can't wait to cut stuff with it.

The world (and this country) is getting more and more fucked every day. I used to want to escape to an island somewhere, but now I just want to get off the damned planet.

Sounds to me like you need to watch Wild Zero


Rockemstock: I had a complex time travel/zombie nightnmare
Rockemstock: I was in a fictional vintage store on the bowery and the Ramones walked by and it was weird cause they're all dead. I called out to Dee Dee and they were zombies, they attacked me, but somehow I was transported to 1986
Rockemstock: Then I was at a hip hop party and I was trying to figure out what to do, they realized I was from the future, and some of the hip hop zombies tried to attack me, and I had to give them my cell phone to get away, which I soon realized was a big mistake, since it was the only way I could prove I was from the future
Rockemstock: I was still in the East Village, and I had to find someone that I knew that would be around, and I could convince to help me. I knew that I shouldn't tell them about the zombies and the time travel, so I think I told them I was being chased by an abusive boyfriend.
Rockemstock: Then all these women in fun dresses came into the apartment and were practicing some kind of performance art.
Rockemstock: Oh, and the zombies were trying to kill me because I was from the future, but they were the only way I could get back to the future

Sea otters are my favorite because they have a built-in eating surface and because they tie themselves to kelp so they don't drift out to sea when they're asleep. Also they can crack open oysters while floating and I, brain the size of a planet, only just learned to open a beer bottle with a rock (a feat I can only accomplish on dry land).
