Headfish comes full circle

Back in the old days, when Taco was still around, Uchi and Loafy and I were hanging around in a skybox high above Dwellget. Uchi attached a Starax goldfish to his head and the headfish was born. My avatar at the time was an otter, so I took to wearing it and handing out copies to people when they asked me about it.

Them: Argent, you have a fish.
Me: What fish?
(hand them a copy, they wear it)
Me: It must be in your head.
(which of course it was by this time)

Cheap yucks, yes, but pretty soon I started seeing people wanding around with Headfish that I'd never met... it had gone viral. People started making more elaborate headfishes, which was cool. A year or so later, 7 Seas shows up, and people's headfishes start getting replaced by 7 Seas fishes. And now...

Making a 7Seas Custom Fish from a STARAX fish!

Yes, someone's reinvented the original inspiration for the whole headfish phenomenon.

Right where you are sitting now...

Grab the book nearest you. Right now.

Turn to page 56.

Find the fifth sentence.

Post that sentence.

Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the closest book.

Liveweasel. They should call it "liveweasel.com".

So, I needed a LJ account to post to people's LJs. Oh well, I'm sure I can steal some really funky socks over there.

Argent Stonecutter's LiveJournal.

What I find disturbing is that LiveJournal is integrated into Windows Live somehow. At least it wanted me to set up a Windows Live Id. Blow that for a joke.

If you can't run your tongue across them, merge with them.

I was motion in the boundless universe. I was the square root of minus one. I was covered in thick beige fuzz that moved of its own accord. I was ten feet tall.

I was a pastrami ice-cream cone. I was the key of G minor. I was full of tiny gears and printed circuits and my battery needed charging.

I was pregnant and I knew the people responsible. I was the law west of the Klamath River. I was without form, and void. I was a long-playing microgroove record.

I saw the best minds of my generation and I was appalled. I was a platinum gas tank. I was an army advancing toward I was as army.

I was the ghost of Christmas past. I was the rabbit in the moon. I was as corny as Kansas in orbit.

I wasn't thinking very well at all. -- Chester Anderson, The Butterfly Kid.

Pluto IS a planet

The vote in Prague was totally rigged. Less than 500 members of the IAU, and almost half of them abstained, and they come up with a definition of a planet that excludes the Earth!

The domesticated ferret comes from the European polecat, yesno? So would that be European-American or Mustelid-American?

Global Causality Violation

I can't believe nobody else in Blogger is interested in Global Causality Violation.

Smart marmots?

Much as I appreciate Josh's inimitable contribution to the world of amusing carnivore trivia, I must object to being described as a "smart marmot".

Erudite Ferrets are the new black.
