And it was just like this story of a man and a squid.
The squid thing is just getting creepy now.
Well, I’m glad that the Giant Squid mainly live in international waters. Because I’m pretty sure that man-cephalopods sex is still a crime in most countries.
Never thought I’d be introduced to a new (to me) Andrew Bird song on this blog. Anyway, he rules and that video rules.
Now that was….interesting !
Never heard of Andrew Bird before,but after seeing this will look into more of his stuff.Thanks for the link PZ !
And now back to another nightshift on the Rick Warren thread….:-)
At first, I thought this would be about The Majesty of Colors.
Heh, if you love the squid it will love you.
Heads up, don’t be a victim of identiy theft – Panda Internet Security 2009 is selling for $20 when it usually sells for $80. It will protect you from over 2 million viruses, spyware and rootkits and has a web filter for the kids. This deal is only good until December 31st
I found it sexual.

Clearly spammer asshole is using Windoze.
Here you go spammer,a free alternative to your crap for windoze victims,free of charge and with a better performance in pretty much all virus software tests:
Speaking of alternative sexual practices, it has been determined that (gasp!) abstinence pledges do not work. Good job with abstinence-only education, Christians. I suppose it must come as a surprise to the religiously compromised, but an empty promise and some hand waving wont change human nature.
Spammer Mike is, disgustingly, also present on the sad news thread about Greg Cahill. I hope this is done by bot, and that no human is that vile.
Ive been watching this all night,and this is definetely a human spammer,carefully circumventing the blog’s “too many comments submitted in a short time” feature.
Damn. There are always new lows for people to sink to, aren’t there.
Now that was trippy… especially the little man-squidlettes..
Ignore spammers, human ones are like trolls, the are encouraged when real people notice them.
Truly P.Z., that was disturbing.

will it protect you from SPAM!!!111?

I had the Panda brand once.
It was worse than what it purported to cure…I literally had to re-install the OS to be rid of it, once it ran out…
The video left me all hot and bothered. Has anyone studied the effects of abstinence pledges on squids?
*hopes tentacle waving doesn’t change cephalopod nature*
I had a dream once
I had a horrible feeling it was going to be this…
Excellent video. Animation was so beautifully done. Subtle effects brought the characters to life. Thanks for the link.
It’s worse than that; Panda Antivirus founder apparently gives a portion of Panda profits to Scientology
LOVE Andrew Bird! Fun to see him linked to Pharyngula.
I love Andrew Bird too! He used to play with the Squirrel Nut Zippers. I heard that he will be playing at one of the Obama inaugural parties — The Big Shoulders Ball: Chicago Celebrates Change, January 19th.
I know we’re supposed to ignore people like Mike, but for those of you who would like to tell his company exactly what you think of them (I sure did), here are all the email addresses from their contact page:

The video was creepy……. but the music is AWSUM!
“Streaming jukebox” with a few of his songs here.
Your dream must have felt weird, PZ, without the beard.
I’m with Chad & Sonja–Andrew Bird lover as well, and thrilled to see him featured on my fav site…
i had Robyn Hitchcock’s song “It’s a Mystic Trip” playing while watching this… worked out quite nicely.
Seconding the recommendation Avira Antivirus.
For those of us who are sufficiently computerilliterate that we still use Window$.
One good thing about the rising popularity of Macs: it can’t be long before they reach critical mass for virusification.

A certain deep, primal part of my brain went “Squeeee!” at this video of a nautilus…
Dan Graur has snarled at the authors of a paper defending ENCODE. How could I then…
Over on Telliamed Revisited, Richard Lenski is talking about his favorite examples of evolution, and mentioned…
