How supportive/critical to be in MeFi Music/Projects commentary?

To be clear, I don't plan on eviscerating anyone, but I do wonder if there's an existing "if you don't have anything good to say..." status quo. I've never been active in either, and don't have a feel for it. Personally I *hate* having my work presented in an insincere critical environment, and prefer to both give and receive "something good/something bad" style comments. I'm particularly concerned about MeFi Music, because 1) I've experienced sensitivity re: my own music 2) It's music! It's arbitrary! ...but you hold back development by having people blow smoke up your soundhole.

Metatalktail Hour: "Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far"

Hello, fellow travelers, for this weekend's chat, crank up your Melanie, and let's talk wheels. Marie Mon Dieu asks "I would like to know the first time you ever rode a bike, or didn't ride a bike, or why. Or any bike stories that you'd like to share."

Metatalktail Hour: Least Plausible You

bendy has asked "It's an old thread but could we update "the least plausible story about yourself" as a Metatalktail Hour?" Sounds good to us! Tell us your strange true tales, mefites!

What's in your profile?

MeFites are one of the most consistently interesting groups in which I am allowed to hang out. Some MeFites write or have written books. Hook us up, wouldja? And, in general, I like to check out profiles and am always happy to find links to blogs, updated or not, music, articles, stories, whatever stuff ends up there. Please consider populating your profile. p.s. There's no fact-checking.

Holy shit has it really been 20 years

I don't have anything really insightful to say here, other than I am reeling from the time passed, from the resources wasted, from the lives lost. A New Yorker, who was downtown that day, who says that she wants to send hugs to everybody on this awful anniversary.

Walking Walking

Since we've gone all the way from SF to Tokyo, it's time to set a new goal. This thread is a place to brainstorm where we would like to go to next. Start at Tokyo and go from there? Go around the equator? Pick two new places?

Fundraising update

Fundraising updates now that August is over: we're up about $1100/mo in new recurring monthly subscription income from where we started at the start of the month. We've also received a few thousand dollars in additional one-time donations from site members and readers. And, as an extremely generous cherry on top, we also recieved a $15,000 donation from long-time nerd and friend of the site Jeff Atwood.

A jolly splendid place to express displeasure at fucking everything

A reasonable suggestion has been advanced, by MeFite pelvicsorcery, for another MetaTalk where one can decompress, vent, yell, scream and utter other statements of displeasure in response to climate change, the pandemic, politics, and anything and everything else of a frustrating, grating or infuriating nature. This is in the nature of previous threads such as here, here and here. Please proceed with unrestrained abandon within the box provided below. Thank you.

176: Low-Key Podcast

Jessamyn and I managed to stumble our way into and through a podcast despite both having the needle pegged hard to E this afternoon, and here is recorded evidence of that fact, at about 75 minutes.

Expand the edit window?

Would it be possible to expand the edit window? Perhaps leave off the timer entirely?

This is a place for Gulf-area Mefites or any who are/will be affected by Hurricane Ida to check in. I know we have a lot of NOLA people, for instance. Stay safe y’all!

Fantasy Football 2021

I skipped last year because uh 2020, but am happy to commish if other people are interested. I've done it through Yahoo before, which seems like a mostly OK free platform. Probably draft first week of September? Interested?
