May the Goat Be With You

Episode XCVI (or so) THE SAME OLD GOAT It was a dark time for the Cabal* . Although the Trump Tower can be ignored, continued media coverage of the election has driven the rebels underground to a place with no fries but some Wheel of Fortune with any luck... [more inside]

DC Meetup for Expectant/Recent Parents and Anyone Who Doesn't Mind Talking About Strollers

I know there are a bunch of expectant MeFi parents in the DC area (and maybe some recent parents?) so I thought it would be nice if we could have a meetup to keep ourselves sane(ish) and get a chance to check in with other intelligent, thoughtful adults going through the same thing. Everyone who wants to come is welcome, just know that the conversation might center around, like, babies and whatnot. I expect this to be this Saturday afternoon, April 16th. [more inside]

Card games at the Cambridge Library

Does anyone in the Boston area want to meet up and play cards? I'm open to any games less complicated than Bridge and more interesting than War. I don't know any great venues for card-playing off the top of head, but I'm sure we can think of something. Even if you don't know any games yourself, you're welcome to come: For my part, I'll bring one of those big books of card games. EDIT: Let's meet at the Cambridge Public Library at 1:00 this Sunday, April 17th! If not enough people can make that time, date, or place, then all of those things are flexible.

Return trip to Sydney

I'm staying near Wynyard station and I've been following the BS around the lock out laws, so really have no idea what would be a place worth meeting up at.

ECCC Panel - Mutants of the Wasteland, Cyborgs of the Spaceways

"The Science Fiction genre is known for tackling important social issues and examining the human condition, as well as things exploding or being on fire. Alex DeCampi (Smoke, Grindhouse), Adam Rakunas (Windswept), Margaret Trauth (Decrypting Rita), Douglas Wolk (Judge Dredd: Mega City 2) and Arthur Wyatt (2000AD) take a look at the tropes and themes of modern SF and the intersection of flashy eye-candy and deeper meaning." That's right - an ECCC panel with not one, not two, but three Mefites! If you are at ECCC, swing on by!
