Other Ten Percent Year End Music Guide

Dec 26 2012 Published by under Experiments

Not going to lie you guys, I’m not sure if its that I’m tired and my apartment is cold or if I just want to play with my presents or what but I’m not really feeling this list all that much at the moment. It might also be that the whole idea of year end top ten lists feels weirdly antithetical to OTP at this point. This blog isn’t really me foisting my opinions on you so much as it is me slowly and subtly shaping the way you process all of reality by picking the things that you should pay attention to.

Other Ten Percent Buffy Episode Guide

Jul 06 2012 Published by under Experiments

As with last week’s experiment I’m not totally happy with the visuals on this one but it’s at least pretty functional…if you’ve never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer before. I’ve been kicking around my shortened playlist of Whedon’s first show for years and now I’ve got a quick overview of the series for you available in a quick expurgated format, my suggested viewing order, and the complete series in case you want to know what episodes I’m having people skip so you can tell me I’m wrong.

That’s all available right here.
