Happy weekend, MetaFilter! This week, I want to know what GREAT NEWS you have heard lately, or what great news about your own life has happened, or anything else AMAZING and happy and wonderful you care to share! It can be something as small as, "I cleaned my kitchen!" or as huge as "I saved the whales!" Anything great and happy!

In Search of Ancient Thread: Undebatably Awesome Things
Many years ago, there was a thread that I'm 89% sure was on AskMe. The thrust of the question was: what cultural products enjoy a very broad consensus that they are good? Answers, for example, were things like The Beatles, Shakespeare, the jazz standards..things that have been respected from both popular and critical perspectives,. Things that a person might or might not like for themselves, but that few people would seriously dispute they were of great quality. Does anyone remember this thread? Did I make it up? Thanks for any help!
You're awesome MetaFilter. Best of the web indeed!
There have been some amazing posts hitting the front page lately and I just wanted to have a place to say thanks. Also, it's an excuse to have a thread where we can just be positive and nice to each other. You're awesome and I like this place and I'm always finding something new and interesting. So thank you to everyone. Those who post and those who comment. And even those who lurk. :)

A gentle request from your Health Month organizer
It's almost a new month, and we all know Health Month is awesome. So awesome, in fact, that Team MetaFilter is reserved for actual MeFites. I've now got a dozen requests to join the team from people whose names on Health Month don't match users on MetaFilter. I don't want to needlessly blow people off. If you have asked to join the team, and haven't been added, please shoot me a message on MeMail, and I will add you posthaste so that you can get rolling for August. Thanks!

Mother, she not like the boom
In case you didn't know, a hilarious, amazing AskMe about a mysterious Christmas Letter has inspired a strange, oddly addictive song on MetaMusic. That is all.

I'd like to call Rhaomi out for his habit of making exhaustingly comprehensive, well-written posts. I don't know how he has the patience to both find such interesting content and to document it so thoroughly, but I'm glad he has it. Cheers to you!
