Garbage Day 2020: Garbage Year

Garbage Day 2020: Garbage Year

This garbage year needs a Garbage Day. Saturday, October 24th, 2020 @ Noon EST, The F Plus will begin our fourth 24 hour marathon of online suffering. Broadcasting our unique brand of crap to a live audience for longer than is safe or sane, The F Plus will make you believe once again in the wisdom of social distancing of other humans. We're doing it all and raising money for the National Network of Abortion Funds, but also - we're doing it all because we're at least a little crazy. You can familiarize yourself with the 2019, 2018 and 2017 iterations of this profoundly awful idea, and then prepare yourself for what's to come.

I'll admit that I was suprised when I learned people were drawing things that happened in episodes of The F Plus. One thing we've learned early on in our journey with this show is that a lot of people listen to it while they're drawing, or doing other visual art. In speaking to artists about it, what I've gathered is that the environment of a collaborative group of people having fun and bouncing jokes of each other…
This event is over. For recordings, go here. Update Oct 28th, 2019: Tickets for the main event are currently sold out, however you can yourself to the waitlist in case more tickets come available. However, tickets for the karaoke afterparty are still available, so snatch those up while you can. Alright, we're prepping for another live show, this time in Portland. Saturday, January 18th, The F Plus will be hosting a…
It's back. May 18, 2019 at 12:00pm EDT we will be live performing 24 hours of The F Plus on Twitch.tv and raising money for the National Network of Abortion Funds. Last year we collected $8008.69, let's see if we can reach a larger, yet still immature number this year. Things to expect: Live art by several very talented artists Frank West playing the entirety of a terrible video game Tommy The finest lyrics from…
In December of 2014, we launched the new F Plus site. We switched the site from what was a generic Joomla install and converted all that content into something custom built to support all the various projects we end up doing here. And in the time since, I've played with the code running the site. Many, many many times. I've set up all the episodes with Schema Data. I've written a bunch of different attempts at…
This event is over. For recordings, go here. Saturday, October 27th & Sunday, October 28th 2018 Yes, we're doing this again. Our seventh F Plus Live is coming to Seattle, and we're going to make a mess of the place. We'll perform playlets, we'll prove the existence of Bigfoot, and most importantly, we'll read a whole bunch of crap out loud. Tickes for the show are waitlist-only, but there are still some very…
This event is over. For recordings, go here. Saturday, August 19th, 2017 This year's F Plus Live is promising to be the biggest year ever. And I don't mean that metaphorically, either. We have about five times the space as ever before, and we're going to fill it with our own peculiar kind of insanity. This will be our third show at Grumpy's Downtown except this time we're not confined to the venue area, we're taking…
An F Plus Marathon On March 31st at 6PM Eastern, the ridiculists of The F Plus will begin broadcasting a day-long episode, livestreamed with video on thefpl.us. Hosted by Lemon and Boots Raingear for the entire 24 hours and joined by a rotating list of ridiculists and special guests, we promise to exhaust your ears, eyes, and minds with every terrible piece of online writing that we can get our hands on. While…
A month ago, I wrote An Adventure In Analytics, describing how user privacy and accurate reporting find themselves at odds with each other. I said that I know that I'm getting traffic that I'm not reporting, and promised that I would be running two different analytic suites (Google Analytics and Piwik) side by side for a month, to see how each reported data. Broadly, the thesis here is that some ad blockers…
It was only yesterday that I learned that I learned that The JuggaloCoin (the oft-reported juggalos-only currency developed by Papa Nutt) is no longer with us; The JuggaloCoin is not being traded publicly and perhaps even more tragically, juggalocoin.org just brings up a squatters’ page now. This discovery led to some related discoveries, which in turn led to this page: a list of all (?) 705 publicly traded c…
This event is over. For recordings, go here. It’s the scenario we've all feared. After decades of planning, Finland is finally ready to conquer the Earth. Only one things stands in their way: The participants of a niche podcast not that many people have heard of! Poised outside the building are dozens of nuclear-tipped Angry Birds prepared to launch unless they read material of Montrith’s choosing. There is only one cat…
