Before the board is a motion for the approval of Mr. Krugman as a member of metafilter.

All in favor?

More boring American politics. Great.

Aye for Krugman.

May I say with some aplomb: he already is a member.

The metafilter links page is your friend.

Is this blogger something I need a computer to read, because I do not own a computer.

Heh. That's amusing. I had thought of posting something snarky in here to the effect that everyone who matters is already a member, just most of the ones with better things to do with their time have moved on, and....

Shit, what am I doing here?

Open the gates! The seige has us half-starved and delirious.

I think it would be more efficient if the Metafilter URL just automatically redirected you to Bifurcated Rivets.

Or the Guardian's editorial page.

Hm, yeah, I thought of looking through the member pages, but, user search being what it is, Vreeland didn't turn up.

Please try to keep up. We're talking about iconomy, and why her blog hasn't been updated since, like, July 2003.

she hates you. she updates her blog everyday for me.
neener neener neener.

I lost my blogging mojo. If anyone knows where it is, would you please send it back to me? I feel very badly for not updating - getting lots of email about it, too, which I completly ignore. I suck.

kaibutsu, I didn't do a search - I just went directly to the links page and picked "find (on this page)" from the edit menu on my browser - I typed in 'dangerousmeta'. Cool beans, eh?

What the...? My mojo is only worth $20,000? That tears it - I'm going to the Field Museum. Please someone, won't you clean the urinals in the men's room before I get there?

Welcome back to the land of the almost living, iconomy. I hope you find your mojo, but don't look to me to find it, because I wouldn't know what one looks like, never having found mine in the first place.

I think that I should be given an honorary membership to Metafilter.

Blackballed. If just one of those scary foreigners gets in, our entire way of life will be destroyed forever.

I wouldn't know what one looks like...

So what is a mojo? It is, in short, the staple amulet of African-American hoodoo practice, a flannel bag containing one or more magical items. The word is thought by some to be a corruption of the English word "magic" but it more likely is related to the West African word "mojuba," meaning a prayer of praise and homage. It is a "prayer in a bag" -- a spell you can carry.

Iconomy, don't bother going to the museum - I've found the source of your troubles.

No, no. It seems clear that the Easy Bake Coven put a binding spell on iconomy's mojo...
