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.

Hey all, this place may be... changing soon. Technical reasons that are forcing the issue on some personal reasons.

“Once you start procrastinating pleasure, it can become a self-perpetuating process if you fixate on some imagined nirvana. The longer you wait to open that prize bottle of wine, the more special the occasion has to be.”

I think I'll be popping open some saved bottles of champagne soon. Turning 30 is a pretty good occasion, no?

Once again I'm late, but here's hoping for some Peace On Earth and Goodwill Towards Men. Also how about a fucking time machine, Santa? I'd be happy with 30 if I were perpetually 30.

and we were both right :)


Listening to Lou Reed makes me think of a girl and how we could listen to the same song and it would make us feel nothing alike. She heard Perfect Day and thought of sangria in the park, and I thought I was someone else, someone good.

Yesterday, having drunk too much, I was intoxicated as to pass all bounds; but none of the rude and coarse language I used was uttered in a conscious state. The next morning, after hearing others speak on the subject, I realised what had happened, whereupon I was overwhelmed with confusion and ready to sink into the earth with shame.

BY THE WAY last night I dreamed that I was on a reality dating show and my date was a chimpanzee in a blonde wig.

me: I wish there was a genius playlist for wikipedia articles

Brian: Not just random but like a best of? Or you mean the best random walk? A stroll down wikipedia lane?

me: I think they already have best of; I want it to create a playlist based on my interests and/or starting point.

me: Like I'll enter this and the little wikipedia bot scurries away to bring back delicious morsels of knowledge to me

Well I guess I wouldn't be keeping to this site's namesake if I didn't post at least one goddamned squid news story per year. Thus:


I can only hope in a few hundred millions years some alien species will discover MY remains in a satellite lost in deep space (in accordance with my final wishes) and unleash a plague of genocidal proportions upon their puny planet.

I was making idle conversation at the bar last night and asked the girl an innocent question about why she kept checking her phone. She stammered out that she was arranging to meet her boyfriend, but she said "boyfriend" with a pause and a shake of the head, in the way that boys say "girlfriend" when they've had a few and can't come up with a quick cover story. Flattered.

A TED talk, titled Dan Barber's foie gras parable. It is 20 minutes worth watching, and it ends with: "the most ecological choice for food is also the most ethical choice for food and it's also almost always (I haven't found an example otherwise) the most delicious choice."

Now that I have had a few days to process Michael Jackson's death, I think many of our thoughts can be summed up by a cartoon cat:
What I think a lotta folks are feelin’ now is a regret. Not regret that a man died; no. They regret that for almost three decades they been mockin’ this guy. This guy who wrote Thriller, and PYT, and Billie Jean. You know who you are, you Michael deniers, listenin’ to your The Cure or Aerosmith.”

Also, Téodor does a thing.

I think ubiquitous access to my email has actually made me a much worse person to correspond with. I am finding, to my shock, that more and more emails are slipping between the cracks, particularly if I read the email on a mobile device and then think I'll get to responding later. I won't. [I blame drinking and airplanes.] So I'm very sorry if I've missed your email, it's probably not because I hate you.
