Where The Wild Things Exhibit

A while ago I did a post on group Where-The-Wild-Things-Are tribute blog Terrible Yellow Eyes. They're now having an exhibition for those lucky enough to live in LA, should you want to see some of the great artworks in person. I have no idea if any are for sale, I suspect not what with copyrights etc.

Update on post about Icelandic prime minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir

Update to a closed thread: Earlier this year Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir was appointed by the president and parliament of Iceland to be caretaker prime minister until new elections could be held, in the process becoming the world's first head of government to be openly gay. Yesterday she lead her Social Democratic party to victory in parliamentary elections, ensuring that she will continue to serve as prime minister for the foreseeable future.

The longest boat

Shed a tear for the passing of the LongBoing, this day at 9:58am. We got 2516 oars in the water before setting the whole thing aflame, standing on the strand to watch it drift beyond the horizon. It's where we were all Vikings.

It's an AskMe Miracle

The end result of this question just needs to be preserved as a "wonderful AskMe moment." Crushing problem solved in a way neither of us would have considered if it hadn't been for the suggestion in AskMe. Now we know, and the other credit-card-ignorant will know too when they search!

Yeah, I got my answer, but fuck you.

AskMe vent: Is it just me, or does anyone else get frustrated when they answer questions and the asker never comes back to say "Hey, thanks, that's what I was looking for" or "That's not what I meant, but let me clarify" or never comes back to give feedback to the answers in any way? I'm not talking about "anonymous" askers who obviously can't follow up. I mean regular/mundane/normal questions whose askers never bother to respond at all. [more inside]

Update on SO with Aneurysm

UPDATE: My SO with the aneurysm survived brain surgery. I didn't know if this was appropriate to post here, but the askme response was so comforting. It was the middle of the night and I felt really alone. Now she's home, having survived a craniotomy, and doing great. So, it's late at night again and I'm awake and she's asleep with her giant Frankenstein scar and I wanted to say thank you.

who was that guy, the one with the plane...?

UpdateFilter: while I was waiting in line for an iPhone with my friend yesterday (for him not for me) I was catching up on a little work. I was showing my friend the MeFi admin interface and someone looked over my shoulder and said "is that MetaFilter?" I said yes, was he a member? He said no but a video that he had made got linked on MeFi last February and had catapulted him to mini-stardom for a few weeks. He gave me some backstory on the movie....

Feel-Good Follow-Up Filter

A few weeks ago, I posted a question about our mountains of returnable bottles. Just thought I'd mention the outcome...two days after my post, we found a flyer attached to our doorknob. The local high school was collecting returnables as part of a fund-raiser for a student whose house had burned down. We hauled our many (many!) bags of bottles out to the curb as directed. We weren't there when they were collected, but a few days later our next-door neighbor caught me outside and mentioned that he'd been present when the kids came around to collect the bottles, and one of them yelled "Hey, jackpot!" to the others when they hit our curb. No particular point of this post, I guess, other than it was somewhat serendipitous timing that I had all our bottles bagged and had just posed the question as to what the heck to do with them.

For fans of the Laughing Song thread, there's a mention of George W. Johnson as well as other early African-American recording artists over at NPR's The Story. Photos and song samples there, too. I'd include a permanent link to the actual topic, but have so far not found one.

Gonzo Scooter Journalism

would it be too newsfilter / doublepost to link the closing arguments in the scooter libby trial? the previous post three weeks ago was pretty generic, and the commenters in the thread are right that it was almost impossible to follow what was going on (and i say this as a law student who's fascinated by these things). today, however, was some grand drama, with the defense breaking down into tears, and Fitzgerald going after not just Scooter but Elmer Fudd himself with both barrels. this is stuff that's actually accessible to the general public, but i hate crowding the blue. (grey, i got no problem with, apparently...) thoughts?

new (unpublished) paper on the "red rain of Kerala"

The new (unpublished) paper on the "red rain of Kerala" was asked to be posted once it comes up. It's up now. So far I only added a comment with the link. Do you think this deserves an FPP? The previous was just a couple of weeks ago, but depending on your level of skepticisim, this could be considered a major development.

people outside this board can and will read whatever you post

Today I get interviewed by a lawyer about this post. Not specifically about that incident, but as supporting evidence to try and get the store in question to settle a different court case. The lawyer has told me that the security department has already admitted to criminal behaviour. Considering that this event occured at least 5 years before I made that post, I've already expressed how little I remember. I expect to say "I don't remember" a lot. I just bring this up as a reminder that people outside this board can and will read whatever you post (remember our own shoplifting community?).
