in the mood for a meetup. Kamylyon and I are meeting next Thursday from 5-9 at the Mercury Project/Matthew Moon concert (free) at the Paviliions downtown, anyone interested in making it Mefi?

Denver Pavilions is first choice, in case of rain we'll move it to the Paramount Cafe...

So, let's do this!

Yup purephase, another homage to Warren Zevon, I hadn't seen your post so I guess great minds just think alike.

Alas, I am in Baltimore, and Mr. Zevon isn't feeling too well himself. Otherwise, we would certainly join you.

Yes, boo [looks like my 'double post' worked, it got a couple of people looking], in the Pavilions.

Sorry about that Matt, won't happen again!

I can swing by for a while and knock a few back. I was also thinking about going to the white stripes concert later on this month. maybe we could have a meetup after that.

Is there a consensus on where should be our new home?

Anyone want to place bets on how long this goes on before someone discovers our (roving) camp? It's already lasted longer than I expected. Some day, when we're old and sitting in our rocking chairs together on the porch, some young n00b will stumble into our foolishness and make a MeTa post asking about it.

Anyone care to join me in adding a reference to... this/us whatever on the wiki?

It's an interesting question, raedyn, we will need some in depth analysis at some point. But now, personally, I'm knee deep in dumbass clients.

I will say, gnfti, that yes the knowledge of post-to-closed-threads is the longboat's gift to MetaTalk. Thank languagehat and wendell. #1 has been informed and he placed it squarely at the bottom of his ToDoo.

Of course, you would have known that if you would have forgotten about Poland and read every longboat comment ever made.

Has anyone done that? I confess there are some stretches in the middle of 9622 that I kinda just skimmed.

kenko - I read the comments, and still wasn't clear. Despite numerous claims to the contrary, not every MeFite is a bright bulb. Though after meeting me, at least one person has declared "she's one of the sharper knives in the drawer, isn't she?" first impressions can be flawed. Especially ones made by someone who would say that in all seriousness.

Sodomizing donkeys? Don't you think we should at least ask her first?

Fun Provider?



It has something to do with his sponsor, but I like to think that we, as a global society, are simply becoming less obfuscatory and more literal in our naming schemes. This boat is meant to provide fun, and so is called Fun Provider. This rubber bullet gun is meant to injure protesters, and so is called Protester Injurer. This crack pipe is meant to administer a fantastic ghetto brain change at a reasonable short-term financial price, and so is called Cheap High Facilitator.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent.

Youth Haven Bible Camp, originally called Bear Track Bible Camp, held its first summer session June 21-26, 1948. Jack and Helen Brown, deeded the original two acre camp site to Kentucky Mountain Mission. As they built a road, sawed logs and built the auditorium and cabins, the Browns saw their vision become a reality. The original girls dorm was built where the camp gymnasium now stands, and could house 40 girls. The first boys dorm was a new log barn behind the Brown's old barn. Many of the staff slept in tents. Although the walls were on the auditorium, the roof was not yet completed when the first campers arrived. In fact, the Camp Director, George Fox, had to be called down from the roof to assemble the children and begin camp. Youth Haven's original staff members were Jack and Helen Brown, George and Grace Fox, Helen Becker, Dorothy Hosking, Selma Johnson, Gladys Jones Schroeder, Bill and Barbara Lewis, Hazel McCabe Durbin, Lawrence and Meta Powell, and Chester and Margaret Ranck. 64 children attended the first camp in 1948. Of those, 23 made decisions to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to live for Him. From 1948 to 1998, Youth Haven's purpose remains the same - to win boys and girls for Jesus Christ, to encourage spiritual growth, and to develop future Christian leaders. From two acres and a few buildings in 1948 - Youth Haven's campgrounds have expanded to 66 acres, 11 camper cabins, plus guest accommodations for volunteer workers. A gymnasium and swimming pool are used for summer camps, spring and fall retreats, and community outreach. Enlarged, the original auditorium still houses the camp chapel, kitchen and dining room. In 1948, one week of summer camp was held. Over the years, additional camp weeks were added to accommodate the growing numbers of campers. In 1968, camps for the disabled (Sunshine Camps) were added to Youth Haven's summer schedule.

you took a trip

you gave your life
to Jesus Christ
and after all your friends went home
you came down,
you looked around
and you were not the same after that

you were not the same after that
you were not the same after that

you've seen them drop like flies
from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door
with this look in their eyes
you've got one good trick
and you're hanging on,
you're hanging on to...

you took the word
and made it heard
and eased the people's pain and for that
you were idolized, immortalized
you were not the same after that

walking tall, you'd bought it all
you were not the same after that
'til someone died on the water slide
and you were not the same after that

you've seen them drop like flies
from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door
with this look in their eyes
you've got one good trick

That guy is all about repetitive use of a few cool gifs, it seems, and he further has the distinction of devoting an entire site to a man he claims shunned by Andre Breton "for being non-conformist", although I suspect that that's a dignified way of saying that Breton booted him for assholism.

HAPPY EARLY

BIRTHDAY THREAD

CLOSURE, RAEDYN.

DO YOU PREFER

CAKE OR PIE?

OR PERHAPS

RADISH ROSETTES?

Happy future birthday raedyn.
A chocolate angel food with chocolate frosting is better for a birthday party than radish roses or fish stew. Even a five fresh fish stew. 10026 is an ugly thread. It is amazing how intense the feelings get.
posted by Cranberry at 11:44 PM on August 23, 2005


Yeah, that's an ugly thread. I vote we don't go there next. It'll probably be closed anyways. Does the 'posting in archived threads' trick work with ones that are closed by the admins? I'm pretty sure it's only a matter of time before Matt puts a lock on that one.

Happy birthday in advance, raedyn. Have a snake and a crowd of mongooseses:

If, in fact, that's what a mongoose looks like.
posted by kenko at 11:44 AM on August 24, 2005


aww... what a cute bunch of ... mongooses? mongeese? mongi? or is it like moose - a herd of mongoose?

Whatever you call 'em, they look cute. Save for the claws. They must be meant for digging. Yikes!
posted by raedyn at 1:39 PM on August 24, 2005


I meant the look cuddly 'cept the claw. Doh!
posted by raedyn at 1:40 PM on August 24, 2005


The snake is lecturing on the protective antioxidant response element pathway by 6-Hydroxydopamine In Vivo and In Vitro. The mongeese are worried about tomorrow's midterm.

The mongeese coffee shops and libraries will be full tonight.

Happy Birthday, Raedyn.

May your winningest cheers come early and your earliest cheers be mongeese.

Cuspal
The chewing or tearing points of the cuspids, bicuspids, and molars.

Interesting phenomenon. I have seen people remark that what is called "the gray", they see as brown.
This afternoon I used a computer which had XP Professional, and the colors were quite different. This background was a pale dusty violet, the green was lighter and brighter.
IIHAA's tiny type about the structure of teeth was big enough to read, but the picture of the tooth was not displayed.
posted by Cranberry at 8:20 PM on August 25, 2005


Ha! I wish 'twere me. It's probably that danO guy. What ever happened to him?

Cranberry, are you saying there was a noticeable color difference between XP Home and Professional? Or just XP v. OSX or something? 'Twould be weird if the Home and Pro versions of XP yielded different MeFi color schemes beyond that governed by variations in monitors.
posted by Jamie Farr at 8:42 PM on August 25, 2005


The monitor for the XP Pro was flat screen; there are still a lot of CRT-type monitors in the building, but I did not think to pop into various offices to ask if I could check meta-colors.

Goethe said, "One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words."
He left out "write an excellent post every day", but then it took him 50 years to write Faust . . .

*shudders* those two look like blotters.
Um, before ball point pens, people used fountains pens - or as in Harry Potter, quills and wet ink that had to be blotted to prevent smearing. One may see sand used for this purpose in period movies, but once blotting paper was invented, sand was sent back to the shore.*Ends history lesson*

I hope the riffola amendment applies only to his computer, or to those of mefites who wish to miss out on the funny things posters find to use as illustrations.

Why not post them in 10127? Make a sort of reservation.
