Okay so, we are abandoning the advertising model since we lost our last sponsor. Well technically Axe Body Wash was strangely fine with continuing our partnership but after Thursday’s entry gave me a temporary psychotic break that caused me to miss Friday’s post and then post a homophobic rant about a school candidate and quit Facebook it was decided it was best if we parted ways.

People, I had a simple dream. A dream of getting sponsorship from individual posts on internet websites and using that funding to create a vast media empire.

So welcome to today’s New New Other Ten Percent, brought to you by…Axe Body Spray. Axe. Body.

After our ALL STAR LAUNCH we’ve got a few less sponsors for today’s post but I’m confident that the hyper-locative geo-savvy paradigm-shifting business plan here at Other Ten Percent will attract all kinds of sponsors. Also, as it turns out, the Huffington Post sponsorship was a one day deal too. I’ve got the ad guys working hard though. Welcome to The New Improved Other Ten Percent (TM) Brought to you by Schick Pro Razors. Continue Reading »

I will remain certain that this is exactly how this will all go until I actually have the meeting tomorrow. So let’s do some links to take my mind off of this stuff. Continue Reading »

I mean they aren’t bad they’re just…weird. How Weird? Continue Reading »
