What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

Hello, I am Paul G. Hunt from the Netherlands. I'm one of the moderators here on Metafilter. The songs I make can be found here and elsewhere. My personal blog is here; you can also find me on Twitter if you like cheesy puns and Dutch politics.


You might remember me from such vaguely recalled Metafilter-related moments as:

  • The Metafilter Music Collaboration

  • The Tenth Anniversary Metafilter Quiz [answers/spoilers]

  • Freezeland, a comment fable about the Elfstedentocht in Dutch consciousness

  • A presidential speech to mark Metafilter's recovery from cyber-attack

  • The Mefite Has Been Drinking

  • Requiem for the <blink> tag
