I'm teaching myself the blitting-centric Flash games library Flixel, and my Hello World program sort of got carried away and turned into this silly little platformer in which you try to collect favorites while avoiding the menacing flags. Fifteen levels in three worlds (blue, green, and grey), random fave and flag placement, and, in fine oldschool platformer fashion, compensating for it's shortness by being unfairly hard in spots. Features chiptune snippets of matthewchen is Spamming and Doing the Churlish Pule!
I've spent the last few days conducting a comprehensive review, and constructing an annotated index, of the use of variations of the phrase "hurf durf" on Metafilter. The index covers 357 separate comments (and 10 posts) on various parts of the site, in chronological order.
It's Metafilter 2.0. Hopefully to blossom as a clearinghouse for absurdist mefi humor, including bizarre flash apps. This is brand-stinking new; if I'm omitting some good self-reflective mefi blogs or stunts or misc. content, please let me know!
With Matt's blessing, I'm pleased to announce the official, discs-are-in-the-mail, order-yours-today release of the Metafilter Compilation Album—a collection of original tracks by 24 different mefite music acts, put together over seven or so months, with all profits going to charity. We've got about 800 more of these discs, and there's not much time until Christmas/Hannukah/HappyGiftDay.
I spend too much time on Metafilter (and especially Metatalk). I've had I-don't-know-how-many conversations about the site—what it is, what it was, what has[n't] changed, and such—and so I've decided to go spelunking. I'm going to go back and read Metafilter, and blog it. I'm planning to read every n-hundredth or so post, starting from the beginning, and I'll be trying to note various observable trends—users, memes, tone, conversational structure, etc. It won't be rigorously scientific, but hopefully it'll be reasonably objective. Specific analytical notions welcome. Likeminded co-author proposals welcome. Cash welcome.
