They might as well just call it "Insert joke about bad sushi here" I.J.A.S.H. It has a nice ring to it don't you think? Mmmm Ammonia. ;-)Da' schmeef
a little embarrassingly, i am disappointed to learn that this is not real.
I would -so- read a story by that title. Seafood Science Fiction anyone?
Peter -just read 'Hierarchy of Contempt', and you are my new literary superhero.I'm forced to use a pseudonym though, to avoid the persecution of the respectable. That's a lie; I still have pretensions of joining their ranks some day.Cps. your site has broken links in the updates section - i think you need to add the /real/ directory for the left menu (only in updates.html.)
So this wasn't real after all? I dismissed this as unfunny the first time I saw it, then later noticed that the first word was a hyperlink (insert comment about site colors here); then briefly thought it was real until I read the comments of that entry.Bleh. Well, there's always Sheena 5.
The specific origins of 'squidpunk' are here, in the introduction and comments.
Dal said... just read 'Hierarchy of Contempt', and you are my new literary superhero.Why, thank you. It's especially satisfying to achieve superherodom not through the eloquence of my fiction, but through the trashing of a Canadian legend's disingenuousness. (Although evidently she's backed down somewhat in the meantime. There comes a point where no matter how hard you squint, you just can't convince yourself that the sky is green.) ps. your site has broken links in the updates section Fixed. Thanks.
magetoo said...I dismissed this as unfunny the first time I saw it, then later noticed that the first word was a hyperlink (insert comment about site colors here);Ooh. Right. Never noticed that until now (since all the links I see have, by definition, been "visited", so they render in an obvious color on my browser). Thanks.Bleh. Well, there's always Sheena 5.There is! I'd never seen that before. And I refuse to read it all the way through until I discharge my other, more urgent reading duties. But I did read far enough to bristle at the description of a squid's "binocular eyes". Like hell. How can your eyes be binocular when they're mounted on opposite sides of your head?
Well, the mantis shrimp has trinocular vision in each eye, so maybe it was meant that the eyes of the squid in question are binocular individually? I've never heard of that property being found in squid eyes, though.
