HMM - Hot Mic Mornings


#41

That’s a pretty religious potato.


#42

It’s name is Matthew apparently


#43

Knowing what substances are usually present in crowded pools, I think this might actually deviate from Ben Pack’s original “sauce is the best food” take.


#44

If you’re counting a crowded pool as food, then you have bigger problems than what is and isn’t a sauce


#45

What if you’re a shark?


#46

If there is one thing I refuse to tolerate, it’s the vilification of Sharks.

But that’s pool food baby


#47

re sauce: spreads are sauces and so a lot of this discourse is agonizing because I want to weigh in on it


#48

I felt the same reaction as Austin at Rob’s accusation that he was trying to annihilate meaning


#49

I feel like a lot of the semantic discourse loses meaning anyway when we already have words for things.
Spreads are spreads, not sauces, at a stretch they’re condiments, but there’s a reason there’s a word for spreads and we don’t call it bread sauce or bread dressing or something.
(By that logic is peanut-butter a sauce?)

A lot of the specific definitions we have comes down to viscosity in the end, you can use a sauce like a dressing, but a sauce is typically a couple of shades thicker than a broth, but not as thick as a capital D Dressing.

I like being an influencer and transforming from a plane to a car at 50,000 feet in The Crew 2


#51

If you put spread on a slice of bread, is that an open face sandwich?


#52

Looking at the direction this thread took, I can’t believe it, but I miss the days when Waypoint just talked about feet.

I’ve had enough with the dishcourse


#53

this forum has always had a distressing amount of gastro-taxonomic discourse


#54

Here’s a bit more. Something that went unchallenged in the sauce episode is the conflation of sauces and condiments. I think they are distinct. Condiments are additive, not essential. A hot dog with mustard on it is a hot dog. A hot dog with no mustard on it is a hot dog. A pizza with no sauce is not a pizza. A lasagna with no sauce is not a lasagna.


#55

100%. This is what I was thinking the whole time. In a tikka masala the sauce is part of the meal and not additive and therefore the sauce is not a condiment.


#56

bout to f around and spend an hour making a series of Venn diagrams to teach these devils.


#57

I had missed a couple HMMs so I’m getting caught up over the weekend and it’s a really good time. I like having a chill hangout stream where I can do something else while listening and then snap to full attention when Austin asks everyone what their Fursona is or Joel shows up with a powerpoint presentation or some shit. It’s a nice contrast stuff like Big Boy Season which demands your full attention.

Also more generally I think the producer cam is a really great addition, Natalie taking a more active role in the streams has been very fun.


#58

I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve seen but, especially as someone who’ll never get a chance to join in live, one every weekday seems overwhelming. I would be down for 3 a week, combined with Waypoint radios that’s a pod a day.

EDIT: I just read Austin’s post above, didn’t realise they were focusing on longer streams to boost Twitch numbers. If it’s less taxing than playing games go for it!


#59

Sorry, but who is Jerry?


#60

In this instance, Jerry Seinfeld from Episode 02. I don’t have a note for his second time back, but you can see the start of the bit here.
