Hi, can you identify this post? It was about a songwriter who wrote a book on composing high quality popular songs. The FPP included a rare interview he gave the Guardian and the thread consensus was that the interview was very poorly done. It's for a niece who's making demos. Thanks everybody! posted by CyborgHag at 2:16 PM -
In the spirit of the success of #JulyByWomen, and with viggorlijah's permission, I would like to propose another month dedicated to Mefi posts from outside the West. [more inside] posted by divabat at 11:09 PM -
Is there a "search within a search" function that I haven't figured out? What I mean is: Can I do a first search, then search within those first results to narrow down the list? This is about my search skills specific to the site rather than site lack. [more inside] posted by RaRa-SpaceRobot at 4:52 PM -
In my latest column, this comment helped me to write the introduction to a piece I was stuck on while I was on deadline, a few days after it had been made by elgilito. Thank you elgilito for your research, and your French, and thanks Metafilter for being part of my media diet. You are an odd and useful tool in my writing, and an unlooked-for blessing. posted by Mistress at 2:42 AM -
The original JulyByWomen project aimed for an ambitious 90 extra posts this month. As August approaches, the tag #JulyByWomen has hit 397. The original thread is archived, so here's a place to celebrate, analyse and discuss plans to first take over Metafilter, then the world! continue the fabulous diversity and discussions July brought. posted by viggorlijah at 11:43 PM -
Then, on May 19, the user “acridrabbit” posted a simple question: “Is it possible that Kaycee did not exist?” Not only were there some inconsistencies in Kaycee’s story—some odd-sounding descriptions of how the doctors talked about leukemia, the difficulty people were having in finding an address for flowers and cards—but it also appeared that nobody had ever met Kaycee in person.
Friends, I just wanted to point out something to you that you might not have been aware of, and that I was only reminded of a few hours ago, when I saw a reply to a comment in a thread here at Mefi. The reply, you see, was to a comment made SEVEN YEARS AGO. Yup. It's Metafilter Music, neighbors, where the threads never end. Never! Y'all stop in sometime, y'hear, and leave a comment! And don't worry if you're a little late to the party. At MeFiMu, the party never stops. posted by flapjax at midnite at 6:46 AM -
