Wow. I wish I was on drugs right now.

I love it when podcasts are more raw. don't "air bush" your speech so much so you sounds all articulate and shit :P

Oh yeah, I should put a warning that there are a handful of f-bombs dropped by both of us.

Would it be possible to embed the player in the RSS feed, so those of us that get our MeTa through RSS can play too?
posted by blue_beetle at 5:03 PM on April 9, 2007

It depends on your RSS reader, but most disable the embed flash player stuff for security reasons.

A handful? I thought I'd accidentally clicked on a podcast for sailors! Gracious!

On the other hand, I think Google Reader auto-generates a flash player if an item as an mp3 linked in the rss text.

If you add the podcast feed to Google Reader, I bet it does the magic flash player thing.

I enjoyed it.

Maybe we can do one of those Wal-Mart sanitized podcasts next time where instead of swearing there is a repeated word or just a blank space. "I ain't saying she's a gold digger, but she ain't messing with no broke broke."

"it's a fractal, it never ... ends."
"it's a fractal, it never never ends."

However, yeah I'll make more of an effort to keep the swearing at bay if people don't start with the potty mouth finger wagging. I'm just happy to have a job where the boss swears as much as I do. This is not at all true at my other job.

No, no, kepp your filthy fucking mouth just the way it is. I fuckin' love swearing. I just wanted an excuse to say "gracious", because I love words that are basically the opposite of swearing too. Someday I will get around to an internet based "Campaign to Bring Back Gracious".

I quoted it because I thought it was a funny comment. And the use of fuck was just so.

Oh my God, Matt sounds like Brian Posehn.

Interestingly, Mathowie becomes completely inaudible when using my nifty braun toothbrusher, but Jessamyn remains intelligible.

I can hear both of them fine while flossing.

That "you sexy sex person" bit was priceless. We need an actual reenactment without the laughing now. mefi pr0n ahoy!

For some reason, I actually blushed hugely while I was sitting alone in my apartment listening to strangers read posts I made on the internet out loud.

It was interesting.

Oh my God, Matt sounds like Brian Posehn.

And Jessamyn sounds like Jeannine Garofalo

Fun fun fun.

I love Matt's derisive snort when Jessamyn tries to represent for Portland, ME. We do what we can! We really do!

Yes! More interviews with MeFites! We want to know: who are people in our neighborhood? The people that we snark at each day?

RE: that fractal thing. Funny enough, ya'll didn't talk about why that post had so many comments - because people kept discussing the "size" of it, whether or not it was bigger than the universe, etc. But Jess did point out why the whole discussion was over-thinking it, because "Yeah, like, it's a fractal, it never fucking ends."

It's also worth noting that all of us in the mandelbrot thread were incredibly high.

Oh and more cursing. And you need to get cortex as a regular contributor. And more interviews.

That's not to say I don't like the podcast though, I actually look forward to it.

Suck it, fractal haters!

Would it be rude of me to point out that you give the date as 2006?
posted by George_Spiggott at 10:58 PM on April 9, 2007

yeah, oops. it's 2007. I noticed that after I uploaded it.
posted by mathowie (staff) at 11:03 PM on April 9, 2007

I don't know whether to file this under bugs or not, but I'd note that the inline player above always seems to give me the sound of an electronic chipmunk convention, whereas the mp3 download is always just fine. I use an up-to-date Firefox. Not a biggie, because downloading the mp3 only takes a couple of minutes, and i can play it in another tab and follow the links to my hearts' content.

My only complaint is that 21 minutes is too short. I get lonely here at work and hearing your voices keeps me company.
posted by yeti at 8:20 AM on April 10, 2007

Agreed, yeti. kill your boss. The voices are keeping me company here at work too. kill your boss. I find them very comforting and motivating at the same time. kill your boss. Pardon me, there's something I have to do now.

Please, please, please, let the music fade out slowly, and speak over it, don't jump cut to your voice.

The lemuria reading is priceless.
