I Feel Like I Need a New T-Shirt

My old FIAMO one in professional black is getting a bit snug in the middle, if you know what I mean.

1970s music post from the Blue

I'm looking for a music post from the Blue that appeared about a month ago. It was about an elementary school class in California who had written a song that Warner Brothers eventually released as a single (with an industrial film by Francis Ford Coppola). I've searched for this but haven't found anything--does anyone remember this?

Metatalktail Hour: EDC

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Tonight's topic was suggested by both zamboni and bookmammal: What's In Your Pockets or Bag! Discuss what you bring with you every day when you leave the house. (Feel free to link pictures! Pictures are a fun part of EDC & bagluv.)

Metatalktail Hour: Hidden Talents and Odd Adventures

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! I'm going with a combo topic tonight of two closely related suggestions: pjern wants to know odd and unusual things you've done, and August West is curious about your hidden talents! Maybe they're the same! Maybe they're different! Maybe you have no talents but have done a lot of odd things! Well this is the thread to tell us about it.

Battle for the Net

We’ve done it before with SOPA/PIPA and Net Neutrality day. Are we doing it again?

On iOS, Chrome seems to work better than Safari for very long posts.

... that is all.

It's like an ice breaker except it's hot af

Metatalktail Hour: Never Have I Ever. What always fascinates me about the weird overlapping worlds of MeFites is how sometimes people seem almost like me and then they're like "Oh yeah I've never... been to Vermont/tried maple syrup/gone hiking alone/been anywhere West of the Missisippi/had chicken pox..." or whatever the thing is, and I'm always like "Really?" What is the thing you've never done that makes people go "Really?" or your little freak flag that makes you... you?

130: ...And Special Guest Star Robocop Is Bleeding

Hey, who's that on this month's podcast? It's long-time MeFite and all around good fellow robocop is bleeding, who joins me and Jessamyn to talk about making art, living in Salem, MA, and a bunch of MetaFiltery stuff. This episode covers the month of June more or less and runs about 95 minutes.

Please help me find a piece of writing that was linked on Metafilter

It appeared some time ago, I remember it was written from the perspective of someone stocking shelves (at a supermarket or Amazon warehouse?). In it is a description of the organisation as if it were an organism of emergent intelligence—a blind but many-limbed monster armed with thousands of portable barcode scanners. Does this sound familiar to anybody?

Why would people think Metafilter censors posts critical of police?

Why would people think that Metafilter routinely deletes posts critical of police? Possibly because it says so on Metafilter. In a thread regarding Facebooks's deletion policies, there was a comment that claimed "Facebook (like MetaFilter) routinely deletes posts criticizing police."

A uniform quoting style for twitter links

Since tweets are being linked to or quoted more often than before, especially in the politics threads, I think there is a need to come up with a way to standardise these quotes/links. It could be either just a preferred in house convention or an addition to the buttons that are there below the comment box. Might also need to consider how to quote a thread of tweets or multiple tweets. What does MeFi think?

More TIL?

The Today I Learned thread from January has been closed. Can we have another one? TIL that deer like wilted apple leaves. My dwarf Golden Delicious apple tree fell down in the late snowstorm two weeks ago. This afternoon I saw two deer in my back yard eating the wilted leaves off the downed tree. First time I've seen deer in the yard in several years. This evening just at dusk they were back, eating apple leaves again.

Just how Random is Random?

When I click "Random" to generate a random AskMe question, I'm constantly taken to this question about DVD commentary tracks. Why would this be the case? I probably hit it once every few days? It seems statistically unlikely with a random generator?

What the fucking fuck

In the interest of not cluttering up the massive political thread with expressions of disbelief, let's have a Metatalk thread about how unbelievable all this shit is.

Metatalktail Hour: I'm disorganized!

Ack, I'm so disorganized this week I didn't pick a topic! So tonight it's just TELL US YOUR NEWS, chatter about your stuff, what've you been reading, how's your summer going, how the fam, how's work, how's life, how's philosophy? (Just remember, no politics!)

July Best Post Contest!

In July, we'll be having a best post contest! This will be the first one since I came on staff and I've been hassling the other mods for months, so they finally gave in. Read on for categories and start preparing your posts now!

Happy Moderators' Covfefe

Well, not much has happened over the past year, and things have been pretty easy for the mods, so I hesitate to even make a post to celebrate Moderators' Day this year. It seems a bit off to thank the mods for all their hard work, thoughtfulness, excellent communication skills, and infinite patience when they have basically been lounging by the pool at MetaFilter World Headquarters eating bonbons and /hamburgers all year.

Searching for post about Objectivist web comic

I'm having trouble googling up a web comic I'm sure I saw on MeFi in the last several years. I believe the setting was an space colony or space station that was run according to Objectivist philosophy.

Hamburger is short for...

Burt Reynolds reveals the strangely apropos meaning of "hamburger" from the set of Smokey And The Bandit: And Jackie drank on set, sometimes before 11 AM. He’d look over his shoulder and say “Mal! Hamburger!” And that meant glass of bourbon. Whenever he said “Mal! Hamburger!” that meant go get me a tall glass of bourbon.
