Greetings, Sapients! Did you know: MetaFilter has an official chat channel/room/etc.? This is a fact: IT DOES! [previously: the unofficial MetaFilter chat site] It is a very fun and interesting and wondrous place (especially when I am not there) full of assorted cute animal GIFs (especially when Metafilter's Own bread crumbs is there) and random nonsense (especially when I AM there). I promise you that we do not bite unless you sign the consent form and submit it in triplicate three weeks or greater in advance - guess how that tradition started! You will have to guess, the court records are sealed. Ha HA! Dental appliances. Please stay frosty and/or toasty, and as always, vote your preferred brand of quidnunc kid #1!

MeFites on Mastodon?

I'm curious about the hot new Twitter alternative--it's decentralized, it's noncommercial, it's anti-Nazi, etc. But as with all social networks, it's only as good as the people you know on it. So if you're on Mastodon, tell what you think of the service so far, and if you recommend any particular instance.

"Most Favorited Tracks from your contacts" is A Thing

  1. Go to music.metafilter.com
  2. Check sidebars
  3. One will list "Most Favorited Tracks from your contacts"
  4. Some of these songs won't be Jingle Rock Bell (but luckily some will)
  5. Punch 'Em In The Dick!
  6. (Er, by which I mean "please comment, favourite or just enjoy listening to the best of MeFi Music")
  7. Cheers MetaFilter!
