Because I'm so sure I'm going to forget doing this, here's the thread for Japan Virtual Meetup #11! Sunday, June 21 at 8 p.m. [more inside]
It's week 10 of our continuing Zoom meetups! This Sunday, June 14th, at 8:00 pm (because nobody is watching the taiga drama this year anyway).
Same Zoom time, same Zoom channel. Meaning 8:00 pm on Sunday, June 7th for more conversation, trivia, etc. The link from last week should still be valid, but if you don't have it, post here and I'll forward it via MeMail.
State of Emergency may be over, but who wants to bother with taking the train when we can meet up on Zoom! Join us for week 8 of our Zoom meetup marathon. [more inside]
Hey everybody, Tokyo/Japan Metafilter is on a roll! Come join us for the seventh week in a row for some scintillating conversation, moments of trivia, desktop show and tell and whatever else we get up to. [more inside]
OK! We've been a roll with one evening after another of dissection of bad to horrible films, odd flashbacks, completely missed musical connections, scary things, and other stuff that one might not feel are that fun and engaging, but oddly enough seem to keep bringing us all back. Same bat time, same bat channel. Eight pm Sunday, 17 May JST. This is a mainly Japan-based crew of Mefites, but the more the merrier if the time zone works for you. [more inside]
We will be holding an online conversational salon on Monday, May 18, 2020 at 7PM. If you've never been to a salon before, it will be similar to this. If you have been to a salon before — or if you used to attend mine —and would like to join us, welcome! We will be talking about solitude and leadership, using this essay as a starting point. For more information and meeting particulars, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you there! ~VB
It's easy to lose track, but Golden Week is upon us! Let's celebrate Golden Week's Greenery Day (Monday, May 4) together!. We can all reminisce about Greenery Day events through the ages, exchange Greenery Day trivia (surprisingly, Greenery Day has nothing to do with the American rock band called Green Day), and discuss how Greenery Day has affected our lives. Do you remember where you were the year that "GD" was moved from April 29 to May 4? [more inside]
Hey all. I don't know if you noticed this, but we're in uncharted territory here. If you look at the sidebar, it has a list of "most active cities" for meetups, and we're essentially in second place (a couple cities have had four, sure), and if we have another meetup this Sunday, boom, we'll be one of the most active cities/amorphous regional groupings in all of Metafilterland! Can't you just feel those competitive juices flowing, urging you on to meet once again on Sunday night at 8 for some light chat, witty observations, and hilarious jokes? Edit: changed time to 8, longer explanation in the comments [more inside]
MeFites in Japan, unite! (While, of course, maintaining appropriate distance) This upcoming Sunday (April 19) at 19:00 we'll be meeting on Zoom to chat and conviviate (that's probably not a real word). You're probably at home, you're probably going stir crazy, you probably want to meet new people or see familiar faces again, so you should join us! If you want to attend, say the word and we'll send you the Zoom meeting invite link via MeMail.
