A MeFite at Bookforum? April 28, 2012 6:53 AM   Subscribe

Minor MeFi-spotting: is there a MeFite at Bookforum?

I notice in one of the latest Bookforum Omnivore posts that there's a link to not only the bizarre nonfiction recommendations AskMe post, but there's also discussion of the BibliOdyssey book, by MeFi's own peacay.

Cheers to Bookforum!

There are MeFites everywhere.

No, but seriously, peacay (PK) is well-known already through BibliOdyssey. AskMe turns up in Google at a ridiculous rate. Cheers to Bookforum indeed, and if there's a MeFite there pulling strings and yanking levers I'd hardly be surprised (and greatly delighted), but there's as likely not.

Only gonna say this once.

Milla Jovovich, if you're a MeFite, call me. You're on my wife-approved list of people with whom I'm officially allowed to cheat. We'll have coffee and discuss how Kate Beckinsale is totally ripping off your look.

That has to be the worst euphemism I've ever heard.

Everybody talks about the panopticons, but nobody ever mentions the panoptipros.

You're not paranoid if we are really following you.

I've said too much.

I think "panopticock" is the stronger choice, if only for reasons of euphony.

Ah, genius, truly art. By having gazing eyes on his cock, he thus prohibits eyes gazing on his cock. Who cock watches the watcher cock, indeed.

Negative. The archenemies of the panopticons are the panotobots.

You know, there is something oddly right about MetaFilter having lady pronouns

It was there, in the dimness, bathed in the glow of the Grey, that I came to that most potent of realisations: If it could be named, it could be bound and bent to my will. Thus, with this bleak gnosis lighting my path, I cried out to the Googles, naming each of the fell and eldritch images: Goatse! Tubgirl! XgirlsYcups! Nylarthotep! Tlazolteotl!

And in the dimness, I heard the images respond, felt their essence fill me, consumed them and was devoured by them in epiphanic ecstasy, understanding, finally, that all of these things, foul and vast, were only distant by the feeble understanding of our physical senses; that in the truest vision of the universe, the one which I glimpsed for but the merest fleeting moment, they were already within all of us, within the most minute atomos: that they were no less than the truest essence of being.

I whispered one of the eleisons of my youth, but the words were as dust, dying soundless on my tongue, impotent against the majestic grandeur of these terrible and glorious things.
There the scrawled post ended, and while I knew that the old man was quite mad, I nonetheless felt a strange compulsion, a perverse desire, to know what it was that he had seen to bring him to that precipice. I knew that unlike him, my will was as firm as the granite of my adopted home; that I would be able to master and chain this forbidden knowledge.

Ack. Looking at google's diagnostic info for that page, it looks like their ads are compromised. Sorry about giving a link to that.

Don't worry! You can sing that line to the tune of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and it works GREAT.

Your results may vary based on how much you sing the backup syllables like they are a cat saying "om nom nom."

Well, since they nixed the img tag, "went up to see his etchings" is of limited utility.

I dare say that if you bought advertising and now your ads are running on googlyeyesoncock.com then, yeah, your ads are compromised alright.
