Your Hipster Meme Is Completely F---ing Played Out

My attempt to turn some of the existing LOLHIPSTERS sites on their ear by way of deconstruction. At least, that's the highbrow explanation. At the very least, I want to satirize the mocking of my hipster brethren around the world.

28 Things To Do in 28 Days

After a not-so-great 2011, I devised an ambitious plan to bootstrap myself out of a funk: do a "different" thing every day for the month of February. This is the blog of those days.

Offbeat Eats

Since late 2005, I've been tracking some of the more interesting places I've eaten, mostly so that other travelers can find some of the more obscure places I've enjoyed. The latest effort has been porting the whole thing to wordpress and getting full geotagging working so that you can easily see my places by category and map. Feedback wanted, since I'm trying to make this sight actually useful to people.

Dan's blog of math/art projects based on geometric curiosities

My friend Dan and I collaborate on mathy art projects! I throw ideas at him; he does all the hard work of the math and art; I get him to write down what he did, and I help photograph and edit. The blog is a mix of pretty pictures and detailed technical explanations — something for everyone. (Well, for everyone who really, really likes geometry.) So far: polyhedra, paper models, tractrices, reaction-diffusion systems, and bonus musical creations. Comments/questions/suggestions welcome.

The Daily Ping -- 11 years of toilet talk

Fellow mefi'er hijinx and I just relaunched The Daily Ping in time for our 11th birthday, starting our 12th year of writing every day (on alternating days). Topics are usually light and often center around Oreos, toilets, and TV shows from the 1980s with occasional forays into technology and other pop culture stuff. [more inside]

The Tart Little Piggy Stays Warm in the Kitchen

Law and the Multiverse

Have you ever wondered "Does Batman's close cooperation with the Gotham police department make him a state actor for Fourth Amendment purposes? Is evidence that he gathers even admissible?" Well, I did. [more inside]

Write your principal to encourage safer schools for LGBTQ teens.

WriteYourPrincipal is a grassroots effort to encourage people to ask their former school principals what their alma maters are doing to end LGBTQ harassment and bullying in their schools. I'm collecting and posting letters that people have been writing to their school principals. From one of my favorites, written by the friend and mentor who came up with this idea in the first place: "Until she knows that . . . her teachers and peers will treat her with dignity and respect, a young person who thinks she might be gay she will feel lonely and scared — no matter how many friends she appears to have. She needs to know she has the support of the adults around them. "

Covertura - The Sincerest Form of Flattery

Covers of songs. Inspired in no small part by all the fantastic posts and questions about covers on the blue and the green, I'm posting one cover every day. Popular posts have been
Bat for Lashes: "I'm on Fire" by Bruce Springsteen
Yann Tiersen: "Life on Mars" by David Bowie
Placebo: "Running Up That Hill" by Kate Bush.
I would appreciate any opinions, criticism and/or ideas to make it better. Thanks.

Caught Dead In That

I've started a photo blog dedicated to funny tombstones. Some photos I took myself; others I'm reblogging from elsewhere (with proper credit, of course.) The only rule is that they have to be real-- no styrofoam Halloween props, and no photoshopping.

Southern Tier 2010

I am cycling from San Diego CA to St. Augustine FL, starting Sept 18. I'll be writing about the experience en route through the nü-media smorgasbord of flickr, twitter, and a blog (theme of my own design, not quite ready for prime time). The route I'll be taking is known as the Southern Tier. This is a self-supported tour. I'll be camping along the way, staying in homes when possible, and hotels when necessary.

My blog is morphing into a project

In the beginning it was exactly like ten thousand blogs of interest to nobody. It is now a little more interesting. For the last 50 days, there has been a post every five days, regularly alternating on the subjects of literature, philosophy, psychology, and metaphysics. I have many partially completed and nearly completed and complete posts to follow on this schedule, perhaps indefinitely. After reading this Metatalk thread, and in particular these two (1,2) comments, I have decided to take the plunge and post here. If you want to look at one of those particular subjects, here is a link to a post on literature, here is a link to a post on philosophy, here is a link to a post on psychology, and here is a link to a post on metaphysics. In tribute to the aesthetics of Matthew Haughey, I have the closest blue background to Metafilter blue available on the base blogger palette.

No Baggage Challenge

Heyo. I'm traveling as a producer and cameraman (and director...and editor...) for a project that will take travel writer Rolf Potts around the world in 6 weeks (hitting 12 countries on 5 continents) with one twist: he's doing it with no luggage. No backpack, no man purse -- not even a fanny pack. [more inside]

Whale Shark Websites

The Dingbat Project

Dingbats are modern shoebox-on-stilts apartment houses ubiquitous to the Sun Belt and west coast. No doubt you've seen a few. Built mostly during the 1950s-1970s, these stucco boxes often feature shmaltzy wrought iron lamps and names like 'Camelot' or 'Roman Gardens;' some are just downright depressing. The Dingbat project is a (perhaps humorous, sometimes educational) catalog of the Dingbats, architectural mishaps, and other urban detritus I encounter in Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Less Cancer, More Cake: A Charity Run Fundraiser

On Oct. 10, my birthday, I will be running in the Portland (OR) Charity Half-Marathon, in affiliation with the American Cancer Society. I am selling photos I have taken in New Orleans, where I have lived for the past four years, in order to help raise at least $1,000 and hopefully reach my goal of $1,500 (and am also accepting direct donations). I will be officially running in memory of the late Emilie Lemmons of St. Paul MN, a dear friend of mine who died in Dec. 2008 after a long battle with sarcoma. She was 40 years old. [more inside]

The Staff of the Messanger: A media and gaming blog

In the depths of my year long unemployment, I've relaunched my blog. It's a personal blog, and since most of what I do is consume media, it's mostly going to be about media. The big attraction for anyone with interest in tabletop roleplaying games is that I'm going to be talking about and posting material from my ongoing Shadowrun campaign. [more inside]

Chew Chew Chew Redux

You may remember the AskMe describing the prick who gums bikes locked up outside of my apartment. In response to the demands of MeFites, emilyd22222 and I have created a blog to document our progress in tracking and capturing the one we now refer to as The Gum Bandit. We document gummings and strategic progress. There's opportunity for troubleshooting for technologically savvy Mefites, as well as some miscellany for fun.

indexical (a photoblog)

I am a visual artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and this is my photoblog. I have been posting fairly regularly over the past year (233 photos so far). I think of my photoblog as a photographic notebook, a tool I use to record and develop visual ideas over time. It is also a good excuse to wander around with a camera. [more inside]

Swearing with spices

My selection of photographs from supermarkets. I sneak in and arrange the spices into swear words, which makes me laugh. I have only found that Tescos has the required packaging to make this work, but if you know different please email me via the site and I will take your contributions. Only a few updates at the minute, but many more rude ideas floating around my head.

Spillway: Card-Carrying Neophilia

Spillway, my blog, is now one year old. It's a portal to my writing and journalism. May contain traces of serial killers' back gardens, George Orwell, short stories, gangland civic pride, security infrastructure and zones, love for an underpass, London retro-futurism, Swiss minaret alternatives, how childhood movies shape the world of tomorrow, Koolhaas and Tatlin, Poundbury and insane asylums. (Why Spillway? Why "card-carrying neophilia"?)

Three Questions - an interview blog

A new, short-form interview blog. Our first conversations are with Chandler Burr, the perfume reviewer from the New York Times, and Gerald Lange, a well-known and very talented typographer, printer and educator; upcoming interviews will include authors, scientists, politicians, and all sorts of interesting non-famous people too. Got suggestions for interviewees and/or questions? I'm listening!

History Club

In honor of my 1,000th visitor, I am re-posting a philosophy blog I started in December. It's changed considerably since its inception—a different address, some more comments (as opposed to zero when I first posted), and I've been so graciously featured on a fellow blogger's page. And, most importantly, 1,000 more visitors (most of that is probably spam, but I don't care!) Please tell me if there's anything important missing from it, or anything I could do differently.

The actual main event will be posted via cell phone updates by a couple of brave souls seeing the event through with me (or more likely outside of the room with celebratory beverages flowing). Also has information leading up to and after of what it's like to have a child here. Estimated due date is May 14 - but I could burst at any time! More fun and excitement than a barrel full of monkeys really.....

What I Had for Dinner Tonight

Not recipes, just conversation, this blog arose from a daily ichat conversation between two foodies on different continents, which then spread further into the #mofirc irc channel... and someone *looks innocent* joked hey maybe we should start a blog..... and What I Had for Dinner Tonight was born. Your host is es el Queso - long time member of Monkeyfilter, and one keen cook. Posters come from a range of backgrounds, cooking skill sets and countries. The concept is simple - tell us what you had for dinner. Whether you cooked it, someone else cooked it or the guy down the road cooked it - have no reservations about joining in and telling us.
