one of the best pictures of the night did not upload thanks to 23's monthly size limit, so here it is for everyone's enjoyment.

also, once again my camera was allowed to wander randomly; so I take little to no credit nor criticisms...

also also: heartfelt thanks to everyone for coming over to the show afterwards -- crystal was quite happy and thankful because of that.

The show was a bit of fun, but I must admit it was no match for the pizza served upstsairs. Bra-vo!

Oh, and see my drunken comments in the thread below this. I think I thank a few. If not, thanks for the ride home, the pie, the take-home polaroid pic, the cheap drinks, the (ongoing) hiccups, the music arguments, and the general camaraderie on an otherwise mundane Thursday evening. I mean it. I have several new crushes. You may or may not tell the wife. She's cool.

Here are the photos from nomad's camera (I don't know why he didn't let me upload them to his account).

I'll upload the polaroid scans tomrrow morning.

Was he on crumble duty?

Are you guys sure that Art Garfunkel and Kenny Loggins weren't at that meetup? Because I see Art Garfunkel and Kenny Loggins. Really nice photos - thanks for sharing.

Also, I'm getting pissed at the sheer amount of metachat femme shoutouts of which I am never a part. I do have lovely lady lumps, god damn it.

What a great meetup.

Highlights included:

1. Helbient is going to have a 9/11 wedding. And li'l ol' nobody's the wedding planner! (Expect an AskMe thread within the next couple of months. Would an airplane-shaped knife to cut a pentagon-shaped cake be terribly gauche?)

2. Cancer all around, even inside toward the end, generating a smattering of yays and boos.

3. Harold and her Magic Crayon caused a little bit of controversy. The jury was out concerning who drew Harold and whether her latest incarnation had gone too far.

4. A teleological theory of meaning may or may not be a) actually more of a teleological methodology for meaning production and may or may not be b) not satisfied with being divorced from ontology. Bishop Berkeley is either a) a proto- continental philosopher (unlikely) or b) a [what was it?] nut case, or c) the best chance we have for proving Our Father's existence. Aristotle only made the briefest of appearances, and Socrates was much more brilliant than Plato.

5. Newspaper editors force newspaper journalists to sit shoulder to shoulder with their colleagues and make not-at-all-private phone calls to very important people. By the time this practice changes and reporters are allowed to write from home instead of playing word games in the office with strangers on the internet, newspapers as we know them will no longer exist.

6. It's better to be lead swimmer in the less-fancy lane than average swimmer in the fancy lane because as lead swimmer you can enforce all the orderliness you desire. This is important even though the lane has in it nothing but water and chemicals and they don't let you adjust the chemicals so that leaves only water anyway.

7. The chemicals inside of a poloroid smell like your gradeschool Spanish textbooks. This may or may not mean that your gradeschool Spanish teacher was taking inappropriate photos of you and that you've re- or sup- pressed the experience.

On preview:

8. jonmc wasn't there, but we found things to talk about anyway.

Oh well then, I had fun walking around Manhattan, Brooklyn & Queens. And when I asked the countergirl at White Castle for the restroom key, she said "You don't need one," and in a stern voice, added "be sure to wash your hands."

I bring out people's mother instincts for some reason. And I was a good decade & a half older than her.

No, no, Plutor, that's what the people in Florida are going to say to me. Splatta told me how hot he thinks girls with shaved heads are (and I quote, "If a hot girl shaves her head, she's still hot!" and various versions of "I love love love your hair")

It's the ears.

I'm still self-conscious from elementary school about my ears- they were that exact size when I was but a wee girl. I have to keep telling myself, you're a grownup now, miss- they're not too big, you've grown into them.

Good question. I wasn't wearing the pants to sleep so we can rule that out as a possibility. I did wake up disoriented and confused about what time it was (earlier than necessary) and whether I had to go to work (yes), but not at all confused about last night's meetup, which was an excellent meetup indeed.

My best guess: it was the 2 for 1 smartdrinks.

But crack [oh dear, no pun intended], now your students will see you!

posted by nobody at 10:25 AM on December 23, 2005


splatta, it's gaspode, not gasplode. I believe the reference is to the rude, little, talking dog in Pratchet's books.

And, neato! I got a shoutout! (From the mysterious crack.)

Aww, from a philosopher, no less. And I completely forgot to mention cupcakes and fisticuffs. Also, the drama right beneath our noses between TPS's "The Captain" and her boyfriend. Also that TPS is sometimes known as "Crabs" -- but because of attitude, not STDs.
posted by nobody at 6:56 PM on December 23, 2005


Haha, oh, the Captain!! How I love her so. I kind of abandoned her at the meetup to have to sit with her boyfriend, whom she doesn't like very much. Hopefully she still loves me.

And yes, she does call me "Crabs". Maaaan I miss working across the desk from that girl.

...you insufferably congenial bastards

heh.

I feel a need to point out that I'm in a continentalish dept and am definitely focused more on close readings of texts than logical abstraction, but I think of myself as a middle-roader. I really enjoy Wittgenstein, Quine, Nagel, e.g. I'm less excited by stuff like Alvin Plantinga, etc, and I'm oh my god I am really going on too long about something no one really cares about. I'll stop now. I ♥ Aristotle.

quine. is. my. household. god.

after growing up with so many textbooks quel dit dans l'apostille, "proof by quine," I am unashamedly and utterly proud of having lunch with him once in boston, before he passed. age had not at all diminished his amazing sharpness. the man was, and will continue to be, a god.

My landlady's name is the feminine version of Aristotle. Perhaps they're related. She's old enough to have hung around with alot of those philosophers. "Socrates? Nice boy, but nosy."

The term "continental," confuses me. Y'know how hotels always say "free continental breakfast." They never specify what continent. Could be Australia. Then you'd end up with platypus eggs and kangaroo sausage served with Fosters oilcan.

I need to lie down, now.

Sorry Mdn, Nobody, potential others. I'm not very good at being accurate and a derisive ass at the same time. Afroblanco/ca: you pulling my leg? You are two different people? I thought you registered Afroblanco after the internets reprimanded you or something. Next time I won't drink so much.
posted by crack at 12:50 PM on December 24, 2005


jonmc, forgive me if you already know this, but these terms are used because these days there is an enormous gulf between "continental" philosphers (mostly French), and Anglo-American philosophers. The divergent directions are a postmodern textualism in the case of the continentals, and analytical philosophy in the UK and USA. Quine is a very good example of the type. These two approaches are divergent, similar in quality, and echoing a larger cultural battle; and because of this there is considerable antagonism.

You wouldn't ♥ Aristotle if you'd had to translate him. I'm lukewarm on Aristotle, with the exception of the Nicomachean Ethics, which I enjoyed and greatly admire.

I can't let a thread with Quine-love in it go by without adding some love of my own! There's no philosopher from the last century I like more. An amazing mind and amazing writer. His early work was so rebellious that I can't help but think of it as romantic.

He's a good choice for household god.

And no one likes Plantinga.

afroblanca = girl. Afroblanco = boy. ...she's a big copycat.

And no one likes Plantinga. --Ha-Ha!

Also, I'm getting pissed at the sheer amount of metachat femme shoutouts of which I am never a part. I do have lovely lady lumps, god damn it.


Same here!

Looks like it was fun! I so need to come back to NYC. : )

The vagaries of shoutouts mystify me, for the most part. But, in this particular category of social interactions, it's the more frequently flirtacious (or those perceived to be flirtacious) who are going to get the majority of shoutouts.
