F Plus Live In Portland

F Plus Live In Portland

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 live game show at the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall in Slabtown. Our premise is guided by The Big Board. One by one, The Ridiculists will come up to the stage, and The Big Board will assign them a topic they have never seen before, and the only thing they can be sure of is that it will be stupid. From there, they'll be forced…

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…
Saturday, October 27th & Sunday, October 28th 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 limited tix for the afterparty the next day. THE…
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…
In the beginning of May, we published this blog post explaining our basic premise: We received a $20 donation with the instruction that the money should be spent on the outsource freelancing site Fiverr. The idea was a sound one, so we opened it up to the community. People would suggest Fiverr gigs and vote up their favorites. I would buy the 3 gigs that got the most bulbs (the ballpit equivalent of upvoting), as…
We've been asked a couple times now about how we put these episodes together, so if you're looking to set up a remote podcast, this is how we do it. Update 11/17/2016: Some of our methods have changed since this article was originally written, edits have been made to reflect those changes. How do you record? When recording a podcast with people in different places, the first step is to get isolated audio for each…
Nearly a year ago now, I wrote this blog post about how and why The F Plus was trying Flattr to accept voluntary donations to the podcast. I explained my reasons for trying, and described the whole thing as "an experiment". That experiment has now concluded. Firstly, I want to start by saying that I recognize that a number of people did, indeed, push the Flattr button to contribute monetarily to the…
This page was updated Jan 1st, 2019. The F Plus' logo was modified on June 26th, 2015 to a simpler and derivative-friendly version of the same shapes we've used since the podcast's inception. On this page you'll find a few use cases, the color palette, some files you can download, and a longer explanation and tips. SAMPLE USE on light background on dark background monochrome with text with text,…
Some sites make you sign up to see everything. While HypnoLoser may not have a problem with using his personal email address, let's say you don't want to hand out your email to any and all weird websites you come across. But you still want to be able to sign up. What you want is a burner email. A burner email is a temporary address you set up, use, and then forget. There are lots of sites out there that offer…
Prologue: This is a piece all about what happens in the Black Mirror episode White Christmas. It was originally supposed to go in the ballp.it TeeVee forum but then it got too long and ended up here instead. If you don't want this episode spoiled, don't read this. For the record, a lot of the other Black Mirror episodes are good. So the thing starts out promising enough. The always reclusive and camera shy Jon Hamm…
