113: It's Been A Deluge, with griphus February 3, 2016 3:28 PM   Subscribe

This month, me and Jess are kibitzing with the charming griphus, who is almost certainly the first podcast guest ever to not have his account active at the time, but don't worry: he's just resting up for a late entry into the US presidential race. We chatter for about an hour and forty five minutes, covering everything from January 5th to February 2nd.

I barely drink! It would just be me complaining about everything being bitter and missing the pumpkin beers and then getting up to pee every 15 minutes.

I'm starting to regret not having gotten a beer for this episode, now. But I'm trying to do a sort of low carb quasi-paleo thing for a bit with Secretariat and so I just drank tea and thought about bread products non-stop instead.

I actually started reading that whole guitar-building page and thought it was very interesting and cool

and then got to the part where the frets were mis-numbered and was like "oh my gosh, bondcliff did the same thing! he was telling me about it at the boston xmas meetup!"

and then i realized "oh wait this is actually bondcliff's website"
posted by Greg Nog at 8:14 AM on February 4, 2016 [7 favorites]


I was reading another guitar building site yesterday and the guy was talking about the fret markers and how he had to constantly double and triple check them to make sure they were in the right spot.

That guy's name? Bondcliff!

Wait, no, it was someone else who I don't think is a MeFite.

Also, let the record show that Jessamyn suggested we both get banned. I can hold a grudge for a long, long time.
posted by bondcliff at 8:19 AM on February 4, 2016


When did I suggest you get banned?
posted by jessamyn (retired) at 8:24 AM on February 4, 2016


Always a high point of the commute-month when the Mefi icon lights up in the podcast thingy, but I'm astonished, stunned and aghast that we got though #113 without mentioning the Pixar (and others) A113 thing. There was even an extremely well timed post from Mchelly about it, which I very much enjoyed digging around in

(Although admittedly, I'm only half an hour in, so many apologies if I've just not got far enough yet)
posted by PeteTheHair at 8:25 AM on February 4, 2016


True rumour.
Grip is the only person to make it out of The Tomb of Horrors without cheating.

Any conflation with griffon/griphus shall be teleported to the hippogriff den for further evaluation.

He has a sexy voice.

Come back soon!

After you point out that Greg and I know each other, I can hear you going "BAN THEM ALL!" Nuh uh. Bondcliff ain't goin' out like that.

Did not even see it, unfortunately, but that's a good tip for the future: search MeFi for the podcast number.

Oh I didn't mean just you and GregNog, I meant everyone.

I don't understand how Mongolian + Portuguese + Scotch-Irish = gray.

griphus was saying you were also a gray? He's probably not valid source on your ancestry, though.

Though Mongolian + Portuguese + Scotch-Irish => Gray is a great twist on traditional conspiracy theory!
