Other Ten Percent 12/31/10

Dec 31 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

So this marks the end of a year where, I’m fairly certain, I provided ten links every single weekday for the entire thing which comes out to almost 3000 links. Which is ridiculous. And now that I have done that for a while I’ve kinda felt like I’m getting in a bit of a rut. There have been a lot of the same types of links popping up from a lot of the same places and I sorta feel like I’m just a Daily What that gives you the content all in one lump. So I’m officially declaring January to be “screwing around with the format” month. OTP isn’t going away but there may not be ten links every day. Or I may start linking to books and movies more or maybe I’ll just chat about stuff. I feel like an increase in commentary is a likely result of all of this but I don’t really know. Also if you want to give me regular or semi-regular feedback about what you do or don’t like about what I’m doing that’d be great. Oh, also also, I’ll also be screwing around with the format of the Twitter account. Anyway, let’s get into our last round of low commentary high volume linking. Continue Reading »

One more day to go and then this year is over and we can start forgetting to end the date in 11 for a few weeks. Good times. I’m in a bit of a hurry so I can accomplish everything I put in my to-do list yesterday. Continue Reading »

Dec 29 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

To Do List for tomorrow: add some new stuff to the RSS reader and trim some other stuff back, do a ton of wash, clean up my room, fight crime, pick up my comics, write an e-mail about my creative project, maybe go shopping or maybe wait until the after new years sales, discover the real connection between Atlantis and the Pyramids and then go to a huge dinner with my parents and Jane’s family (also with Jane though it would be really funny if we just didn’t invite her) possibly I will also take a nap. I like naps. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 12/28/10

Dec 28 2010 Published by under Daily Posts

Turns out this is my 200th OTP since I switched over to doing this in WordPress so woooo to that. Also I was already to be psyched about the new Gorrilaz album that Damon Albarn like would not shut up about because he made it all on the iPad and he just had to release it for Christmas so people didn’t think he was lying…don’t worry dude, nobody would ever accuse you of lying about that and I hope you look forward to reminding everybody you made it on the iPad every time somebody plays it back for you. Luckily the Dr. Who Christmas Special was incredibly awesome so that kinda balanced it out. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 12/27/10

Dec 27 2010 Published by under Daily Posts

Alright, back to the same old grind except of course this is the top ten links not of the last 3 days but of the last nine. So it’s more like the other .5% given the number of links I went through. Let’s do this thing though. Continue Reading »

And now it is book day. Who doesn’t love books? Me apparantly because I didn’t read ten of them this year which is really depressing looking back on it. So instead I have to throw in comics which I read a lot of this year. I apologize on every level. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 2010 Album Guide

Dec 22 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

I was going to get all music journalism up in your guy’s business on this one but then I remembered that I’m lazy and kinda bad at explaining why I like the music I like. I still go into it at some points but mostly this is just a list of ten albums you guys should listen to from the year if you haven’t already. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 2010 Movie/TV Guide

Dec 21 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Here we are in the distant future of Tuesday totally NOT directly after me writing yesterdays edition. Nope. Not at all. So the format on this one is that I’m going to switch back and forth between movies and TV shows because I didn’t love enough of either this year to get to 10. There are sorta top 10 lists now but it’s really more the usual 10 things that are totally worth your time in no particular order. These are the top five of each category but no rankings further than that. Also I’ll link to DVDs or something if I can but if I can’t I’ll just get bored and link to something vaguely related to the movie or TV show in question. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 2010 Gifts

Dec 20 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Okay so you guys CALM DOWN. I posted a thing on Twitter about how there weren’t going to be any new links and I got a twitter response three IMs and an e-mail begging me to do OTP this week. There is Other Ten Percent its just the top ten lists for the year instead of a normal entry. Everything’s cool. So the past two years have seen me do gift guides by person but we’ve finally expanded enough that I don’t want to do that anymore. Instead I’m going to do gifts based on each of the top 10 tags (as guesstimated by me, hard to actually measure that and also excluding some tags that are getting used later in the week) on Other Ten Percent. Also I’m going to spare you guys the amazon spam on most of these and just link directly to the titles on stuff this week. Could this be a permanent change? Only the future knows for sure.
