My hair is too long! Something's gotta be done! So, here's the deal: for every new $50 in monthly recurring contributions to MetaFilter we see in September, I'll cut an inch off.

FPP: Local Elections?

The last MeTa about political megathreads got me to thinking that it might be good to have an FPP about local elections. What might be the best way to go about this, in a way that elicits healthy discussion and includes as much of the MetaFilter population as possible. [more inside]

Who's a Good Boy? Johnny Wallflower's a Good Boy.

Let's take a minute to congratulate Johnny Wallflower on his 1,000th post. He's a Good Boi who is always there to remind us that while the Internet may be made of cats, it's not made ONLY of cats. And let us be grateful it's not a literal shitpost.

Fantasy (American) Football Anyone?

Hey! It's that time of the year again! Assuming the season actually takes place, of course. Who's interested in some fantasy (American) football? I'll probably use Yahoo or ESPN and have a live draft, which honestly, is most of the fun. Let me know if you're interested and I'll shoot you a link when the league is set up. Thanks!
