Other Ten Percent 9/11/13

Sep 10 2013 Published by under Uncategorized

Not sure about that whole “do every single post I can find” thing. It kinda felt too scattershot and most of that old stuff is feeling like you must have seen it by now since it was AGES ago. So there are these links instead.

“A glitch in the Nasdaq stock market resulted in an unprecedented shutdown of trading of over 2,000…”
The Nasqaq lacks such basic protections against random bugs/attacks that it’s basically insane to me. This shit happens once a year or so which in the grand scheme of things isn’t so bad until you realize that millions of dollars are being thrown back and forth here EVERY SECOND.

Archer’s Dr. Krieger builds a clone army. It doesn’t go well.
I feel like more shows should just toss out plotlines that they couldn’t quite work into the script as between season social media campaigns.

Not a whole heck of a lot on the RSS reader today so there’s going to be some supplemental content. The good news is that you can expect a 1000 word review of House of Cards over on Tech Hive from me on Friday so that’s out of the way.

The Centrifuge Brain Project, Short Film About Bizarre Carnival Rides
I kinda wasn’t paying attention to what this was the first few times I saw it around (sometimes I’m just not in a place to watch a six minute video) and that’s a shame because it turns out I was just skipping around to all the boring bits and missing that this was actually a pretty brilliant little faux-documentary.

Okay so at least we made a good choice getting rid of the iron but a CAT people? I mean we already have the far superior scotty dog and while cats are perfectly fine there was a robot and a helicopter sitting right there that we could have picked. Once again I’m ashamed of this country. Thanks Obama!

So I’m a bigger fan of the parts of this guide to music journalistic bullshit that are making fun of the poor journalism on display when these terms are used than the parts that just want to let music bloggers know they aren’t as cool as they think they are but I’m still fascinated by the whole thing. I’m basically a fan of everything about thisblog of things fitting perfectly inside of other things though. Finally who wants to see all the models for the various Archer characters? Because they’re right here.

Sorry to be SUPER lazy but we’re heading out to see fireworks on the spur of the moment and I’m not sure I’ll make it back by midnight. Just in case I don’t here are some links without commentary. I will come back and write some stuff up if I make it home in time though. EDIT: Woah hey I totally have time becasue we got back home at around 10 after an extremely pleasant walk through the city and a fun time on the roof of Nikki’s office that was great despite a lack of real firework views. So now let’s do some link commenting. Continue Reading »

I really wish I could do in depth examinations of all the links today because they’re really fascinating but unfortunately I have more party prep/TV club stuff to do so I’m afraid this is going to get kinda lightning round-y as I try to get as much of it done as I can before I run off to grab dinner with Jane. Oh hey, here come those links now. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent Social Calendar: The Summer of Ghosts

Jun 29 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

So, for various reasons this week’s web project is still VERY MUCH a work in progress. But, for various reasons, I’m also okay with that.

The OTP Social Calendar for Summer 2012: The Summer of Ghosts

Design-wise there’s a lot to do here but I think it’ll be interesting to have you guys watching as I make this go from looking mediocre at best to actually pretty good. This is just about as good/bad as last week’s project looked before I really started iterating on its appearance. I’d also like to do a little bit more explanation on WHY this is the summer of ghosts and maybe relate each event to that a bit more.

The main reason I’m fine with this being a work in progress however is that I’d like your events to add to the calendar. If you have anything going on this summer that you can really reach to relate to ghosts or that you just think OTP readers would like to know about let me know and I’ll add it. As time wears on I’ll add events for August and September and then (depending on if this turns out to have any practical value to you, the reader) It’ll either roll over into the Fall of Whatever the Fall is About or it’ll cease to exist.

So next week look forward to an improved design for this and some new events along with whatever next Friday’s web project might be.

Without further ado I present the OTP Summer Jam Awards 2012.

I hope you guys enjoy it.
