Metatalktail Hour: Resolved!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm wondering about New Year's resolutions -- do you make them? Do you hate them? Did you succeed at any last year? And also, how do you welcome in the new year?

MST Club Christmas Video Marathon 2018!

"That's a number five!" As in, this is the FIFTH YEAR MST Club's been doing this! I guess the secret's out that we show far more than just MST episodes there, we have a huge collection of old and new, good and bad specials, movies and Very Special Episodes, in addition to other videos and riffing of multiple flavors. This year we're doing it for THREE DAYS, staring Midnight (Eastern time) in the morning of December 23rd and going through to the end of Christmas Day. It's all taking place here.

AFIK, this band has never had a FPP. And at the same time pretty much everyone here (ok, maybe 10%) would love the hell out of them. And yet there is no recent "news" to hook an FPP on. So, as someone who has suddenly found this question, um, urgent... How do I make this (first! FPP worthy? Or is that not a thing?

Metatalktail Hour: Happy Things

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week has been a bumpy one in the McGee clan, so tell me something good. Something happy. Whether that's holiday plans/traditions, a wonderful gift you gave or received, something you're looking forward to in the New Year, a dopey dad joke you just heard, a cute otter picture -- just something to make us smile and to share the warmth of the season.

Barking Jingle Bells

Hi, Mefites! I have a need to see your pets in their holiday finery - sweaters, headgear, what-have-you. Have a picture of your cat in the tree? Need to see that too.

I'm curious to know if any MeFites are active on Find a Grave.

So, 10 Years Ago...

...Kattullus gave me a membership as a Yule gift, apparently out of grave doubts that I would never get around to it on my own. This is my 10th Longest Night of the Year with all of you, and I just wanted to say thanks for all the posts, comments, retorts, favorites, flags, mod deletions, card clubs, meet ups, memails, and general hijinx. You’ve made my life richer.

Were you the secret quonsar (2009) who gave me this ornament?

I received this lovely ornament for my Christmas tree from my Secret Quonsar. I believe it may have been 2009 or thereabouts. I'm making an album of my ornaments and there origins, and I'd like to give credit where credit is due. Did you send me this? I believe it was just signed Secret Quonsar at the time but I'd love to know who it was.

Metatalktail Hour: Mnemonics

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, miles per flower asks: "Tell us your favorite mnemonics, rhymes, & acronyms for gathering untidy information or remembering multistep processes. Ones you learned in school that've stuck with you, bits of internet shorthand, or (especially!) idiosyncratic ones from your neighborhood, family, field, or day-to-day needs."

Long Time, No See

Hi, it's been a while. Just wondering if Metafilter still has a thing for pancakes. If so, y'all might be interested in this.

books section here?

Could we have a books section here that's not Fanfare (for nonfiction/history/deeper reading on things discussed in FPP for instance)?

128: DUMPIN' M' BEEF with Jess and Josh

This episode is short, late, and out of control! Things have been busy, so Jessamyn and I finally snuck in a quick hour to record and said to hell with the usual structure, let's just mention a few things we like. Runs a bit under an hour total.

What does your digital space look like? What type of wallpaper do you use? Do you have a lot of shortcuts/icons scattered everywhere? Or maybe you're more minimalist and you need everything pinned to your taskbar or dock. Or do you consume MetaFilter from your iPad or mobile device? We all type/tap from different places, for those who are game, please share a screenshot. Just being curious. Cheers.

This AskMefi question about supporting people on Patreon made me wonder: do you have a Patreon? Where is it and what kind of work do you do? Let's support each other!

Metatalktail Hour: Stranger Things

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter – Euro Time Shift Edition! I'm filling in for Eyebrows to pose a topic suggested by holborne, who asks, "What are some memorable or funny (or both) interactions you've had with [non-threatening] strangers in public? (I thought of it mostly because I've had kind of adorable interactions with guys who handed me their newspapers on public transport after they caught me reading over their shoulders, although since no one really reads newspapers anymore that makes me old.)"
