A Heaping Plate of Monkeys

Update: Roger Ebert's blog post about Ben Stein's Expelled (6MB HTML), talked about here, had so many comments the software wouldn't allow any more.

Full-length Beat Farmers documentary finally released YouTube

Folo-up: In 2005 I posted the trailer for a documentary about the legendary SoCal band The Beat Farmers. Due to licensing issues *cough* Letterman clip *cough* the DVD has never been released, despite pleading from fans...until now. Director Jamie Dawson just put the whole thing on YouTube in 9 parts (about 8 mins. each) plus coda. YT Playlist here.

The Follow-Up Thread

I thought I'd gather together some follow-up links for various things I thought were worth following up on since they were originally posted to the blue. Some things worth checking out, but not individually meaty enough for a whole new FPP. [more inside]

A follow-up to this much-beloved FPP, the resultant AskMe question, and the inevitable follow-up FPP ... it's TIME FOR SOME STORIES: THE BLOG! It contains some reprints from the original thread, plus some new anecdotes. Also of note: the original TIME FOR SOME STORIES thread was restored on vivalavinyl.org, and features newer Dave Secretary stories that weren't in the original linked-to archive.

Walk On

A follow up to this little post I made a few years ago about a fellow that was attempting to walk every street and lane of his surroundings. His passing has given me pause to reflect on the idea of community and how posting events from the local to the global bring us closer together. I want to say thank you to mathowie for providing us with this forum for sharing these often unheard stories.

The longest boat

Shed a tear for the passing of the LongBoing, this day at 9:58am. We got 2516 oars in the water before setting the whole thing aflame, standing on the strand to watch it drift beyond the horizon. It's where we were all Vikings.

It's an AskMe Miracle

The end result of this question just needs to be preserved as a "wonderful AskMe moment." Crushing problem solved in a way neither of us would have considered if it hadn't been for the suggestion in AskMe. Now we know, and the other credit-card-ignorant will know too when they search!

Yeah, I got my answer, but fuck you.

AskMe vent: Is it just me, or does anyone else get frustrated when they answer questions and the asker never comes back to say "Hey, thanks, that's what I was looking for" or "That's not what I meant, but let me clarify" or never comes back to give feedback to the answers in any way? I'm not talking about "anonymous" askers who obviously can't follow up. I mean regular/mundane/normal questions whose askers never bother to respond at all. [more inside]

note: Ask MetaFilter is as useful as you make it. Please limit comments to answers or help in finding an answer. Wisecracks don't help people find answers. Thanks.

Also, I think that the definition of "noise" needs to be extended to encompass posts that are just people giving their opinions without providing anything new to the discussion. posted by 1 at 2:08 PM on February 12 [more inside]
