Thank you for another great podcast :)

You are so loud, Matt.

This is the first podcast I've listened to, and it was great. I have a submission for Gus, the Gumbaby woman, but it looks like the comments are closed. Anyway, it's a link to a web page where people think they are leaving messages for Bill Murray and it's a hoot. Hope she sees it. BTW, Jessamyn, you have a great musical laugh.

Wait, you're only loud when talking about ROFLCON, which must be some kind of meta-statement about the internet.
posted by synaesthetichaze at 9:07 AM on May 10, 2008

huh, I tried a bunch of "Bill Murray [keyword]" searches and it looks like that blog entry comes up in the top 4 results when you put "write Bill Murray" into Google. The first three are obvious bio pages about Bill Murray, so maybe people are posting on the blog because it appears a human wrote it and it looks like a personal essay from Bill (that is being quoted, but blockquotes are subtle) and there's a big comment form below.

A few people have left messages for Mohamed al-Fayed.

Good job as always.

The music was fantastic, and I'm now a fan of Kristy London and the Other Halves.

Maybe not the right place to post this, but the top 10 favorite projects page is borked.

My project just shows up as the date, without the title.

Afroblanco, you were the guy mentioned with no Title on your project. I'll go add one.

Jessamyn, you didn't ever visit the Hampshire College yurt?! It's insulated, temperature-controlled, and is wired for the internet!
posted by gusandrews at 4:52 PM on May 10, 2008

All podcasts are made better with faded-in sounds of rain behind them.

...and I was so hoping to hear a dramatic rendition of Pulp Metafilter! :)

I just looked at the jobs page and indeed, all web stuff. And no MeFi jobs within a 100 miles of here. Not that I'd commute beyond 10 miles...

Good podcast, thanks!

I take notes.

I almost never went back after I graduated, no.

Metafilter: Internet sensation!

That sensation: Tingling.

THe kingbenny song is magnificent, thanks.

I agree with Matt about the preponderance of web jobs! I may post to MeTa to urge more sharing of library/arts/culture jobs. I know they're out there and I know you folks know about 'em!

The song at the end of the podcast was very nice.

Dude. I was wondering why my storm recording got a flurry of favorites a couple days ago! Thanks for the include. And yeah, I wish it was longer.

I just went from thinking "I could maybe tape some waves sometime" to thinking "gah, sudden freakin' heatwave, I should go to the beach RIGHT NOW." I'm off to Ocean Beach. Wish me luck!

Okay - currently uploading, the sound of the waves. About an hour's worth.

You are fucking awesome.

Thanks, Jessamyn!

I worry about encoding artifacts, but I doubt I could listen to it & stay awake right now.
posted by Pronoiac at 6:19 PM on May 15, 2008

Wow, that's some awesome wave sounds, thanks Pronoiac!

Yay! More pooooooooooodcast!

... although, if it ever comes up again, my name is vocalized as P.S. Mealey (my initials and surname). I heard "Pee Smealey", and thought: "hmmm.... that's not good. I don't even like asparagus."

Mod note: death of the author man, I vocalize them like I read them. but so noted

I just love this podcast. That is all.
posted by SassHat at 1:35 PM on May 18, 2008

death of the author man

I read this as if an analogue of "Death of a Salesman". Like maybe the world-shaking 57th issue of Author Man's series, in which he is killed by a vengeful publisher.
posted by cortex (staff) at 2:00 PM on May 18, 2008

I just got a chance to listen to this today. You guys did a great job. That was so fun, so true, and mostly so funny. You guys should get a show on Comedy Central - Stewart, Colbert, West/Haughey.
