A Lovely Hike in the White Mountains of New Hampshire

To all my Northern New England MeFites out there -- let's get together for a hike in the Whites before the cold! We've picked a moderate trail with a great view pay-off. If there's interest, we could also hit up a coffee shop, pub, microbrewery, etc. after the hike. [more inside]

Hey There's a First Wednesday Approaching

Join us after work at the original World Famous Billy Goat Tavern for tiny beers and food from the greasy grill. We're fun! We're friendly! Frankly. we're fantastic. Later in the evening, we'll meander over to Livewire Lounge for First Wednesday Karaoke with the incomparable Mary Mac. That's when you'll see how fantastic we truly are. There might be shenanigans in between. You can never be too sure.

T to the R to the I to the VIA!

That time of week draws near again, and I've missed trivial facts. I'm bringing two people with me, so we only need three more to round out the crew. Unless we want to divide and conquer, of course! (Moved the date to Sept 5, which was my original intent)

Hello Seattle!

Hello Seattle! This is my first visit but I don't really know the area at all. I will be in town Aug 30th-Sept 4th and I'd love to meet some other MeFis, maybe whilst drinking some good beers or eating some good (vegetarian friendly) food in the process. Edit: after some discussion I had chosen Highline, but they added a show to their calendar on Sat 9/2 so that option is out. Let's meet up instead at The Stumbling Monk for some board games and beers at 8pm. I am also going to check out Plum Vegan Bistro before for dinner then walk over if anyone would like to join! (1429 12th Ave at 6:30ish).

Anybody going to the Smoke Farm Symposium?

The Smoke Farm Symposium (think left-inclined TED talks in a barn, followed by a tasty communal dinner) is on Saturday in Arlington, WA. This seems up MetaFilter's alley and I'll be surprised if no one else here is attending. I decided at the last minute to go by myself. Anybody else planning to be there?

Sonascope—telling tales in Indianapolis

I’ll be performing a piece for spoken word and electronics on Sunday, 6 August 2017 at 2:30 PM as part of the 13th Annual Electro-Music Festival running from Friday, 4 August to Sunday, 6 August, 2017 at the Irving Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana [directions]. The entire weekend is a long-form celebration of electronic, electro-acoustic, and experimental music that runs the alphabetic gamut from the abrasively new to the zestfully soothing, with a three-day bill jam-packed with amazing musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with and otherwise revel in for several years now. I’m bringing my combination of left-field storytelling and digital atmospherics to the party, and I get to spend the rest of the time enjoying and educating myself in how it’s done. It's a real bargain for anyone interested in music on/off the beaten path.

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator Training, Setup, and Gaming

I'd like to bring together a casual group to occasionally play Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator at my home (and possibly other venues). Since there's a learning curve to playing this cooperative spaceship bridge crew game, be prepared for some collaborative setup, burn-in, and waiting. But it's fun anyway! Come join me/us!
