mathowie is going to ROFL(con)

Look who's going to ROFLcon! It's a "a group dissection of internet culture" and "big blowout party" in Cambridge, MA, April 25th and 26th that promoters call "the most important gathering since the fall of the tower of Babel" (and possibly just as productive). Wish I could be there. [more inside]

Has mathowie gone commercial?

Disclaimer: This is something you need a TV to know about...
Has anybody but me seen a commercial for Volkswagen (apparently SoCal VW Dealers, but maybe showing in other regions) in which the salesman outside the car is pointing out all the comfort features to the wife in the driver's seat while the husband on the passenger's side is just using the power seat to go up and down and up and down? You'd know it if you saw it, because the actor playing the husband is (to me) a dead ringer for Matt Haughey (including the glasses). I can't find a video of that commercial online anywhere, but I wonder if some actor is going to make a career out of impersonating Our #1... (Or is the resemblence just another sign of my worsening dementia?) Dammit, they are the same glasses!!!

what's "MetaFilter Matt" doing making ponies for Boing Boing

I don't mean to be prick (okay, maybe, but a funny one), but what's "MetaFilter Matt" doing making ponies for Boing Boing, when we have a million things for him to do here?

"...Matt Haughey, editor of the popular blog MetaFilter."

From the article linked today in the sideblog on the Blue:
"...Matt Haughey, editor of the popular blog MetaFilter."

Editor? Then why haven't you ever fixed my typos?!?
Weird, Wired.

Its a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt world

Finally got around to reading L.A.'s alt-paper L.A. Weekly's content-heavy "Year End Lists Issue", and was shocked at what I saw on Page 12: (fourth list down here).
That explains why Mr. Howie didn't make it to the L.A. MeetUp: He was with Drudge, Welch, Damon and Groening plotting to take over the universe...
