163: You must understand! May 1, 2020 10:14 AM   Subscribe

It was a time known as The Great Resetting, when, after a months of wandering in a week late or so with episodes, jessamyn and I finally managed to release a new episode smack dab on the 1st. It was spoken of in legend as...episode 163 of the MetaFilter podcast.

“Anger moped.”

Regarding the need for verb/vehicle disambiguation that crops up around 21:50, how about one of the following?

I'm sure it says something about me that I immediately knew the punchlines to both of Jessamyn's jokes, but I'm not willing to say what that might be.

Of all the links I loved this month, the one that continues to bring me joy the most is Après Sufjan, le déluge (the title got munged in the list because of some accented character sub thing). I did ask my woodworker cousin if he had seen not_the_water's videos and I guess he hadn't so he said he'd look at them.

Bob Ross on Twitch is wonderful. Sadly it's only 24/7 Friday thru Monday. Though they do run marathons on his birthday etc. My only complaint is they have chat on and it just seems unneeded, though you can hide it.
