Ladies and gentlemen, I present The Bloop.

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) several times during 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The Wikipedia page (linked above) includes an audio file of the phenomenon, plus a link to several other similar unexplained underwater audio incidents. Isn't it nice to know that there's still some mystery in this big ol' world of ours?

Livejournal appears to be totally down. No pages are loading; I'm not even getting an error message. They just... keep failing to load. And my latest attempt to crosspost an entry resulted in:

Failed to crosspost entry to crowdog66@LiveJournal: Failed to connect to http://www.livejournal.com/interface/xmlrpc.

I wonder what they're up to?

I doubt it's anything good.

On their Facebook page, LJ says:

LiveJournal is a rich, community media platform that willfully blurs the lines between journaling and social networking.

Willfully?

Willfully?

Is it just me, or is that word a big, cheerful, shameless FUCK YOU! to those of us who have brought up our concerns these past few days?

My money, it is now officially going to Dreamwidth in the future. One step too far, LJ... one step too far on your part.
crowdog66: (smith)
... you forced me over to Dreamwidth. Smooth move.

For those of you reading this on LJ, here's my promise: I'm keeping my LJ account -- for the moment -- but I swear to NEVER crosspost ANYTHING to Facebook or Twitter. I have no interest in betraying my friends in that particularly slimy and venial fashion. In return, I ask that you do not crosspost any comments from any journal entry of mine. Thank you.

Anyone wanting to be Friended on DW, please comment.

... you should probably be running for shelter too.



My God... as one of the comments on the original BoingBoing post notes: "Never invite Zuul and Vinz Clortho to the same beach party."

Well, now I've seen everything.

The cat in question is just fine and has been adopted into a loving home, but still, this took a special blend of stupid, ignorant, mean, and insane.

It isn't very often that you get to see a clueless dickbag insert a 14" ridged dildo into his own ass, but Christopher Gregorio, a/k/a "Kaitol," manages to do it quite neatly. Given the speed with which his skeevy screed "How to hire an artist" is making the rounds of the Internet (and the inboxes of professional and non-professional artists alike), he'd better think about legally changing his name if he EVER expects another designer to work with him again. Like, ever.

A list of Mr. Gregorio's other web presences can be found here, with thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ms_daisy_cutter. I found his deviantArt profile particularly amusing -- not a smidge of art on it anywhere, at least his own. Methinks someone is trying to make his own dick look bigger by claiming a 45k yearly profit based on his own business acumen.

For all the diabetics on my F-list:

Glucerna Wild Berry meal replacement drink is SO damned good. Chilled, it tastes like a fruit smoothie. If you added a bit of no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream to it I bet it would taste even more like heaven.

And when I pasted in all 50k words from "Where Darkness Falls", my 2008 NaNo project...


I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

One of the most disturbing commercials I've seen in a long time, in an "OMG I can't stop laughing!" way.
