Other Ten Percent 9/30/11

Going to be a short entry today. I had to run from work to go see Jens Lenkman at the California Academy of Sciences with Nikki. In my defense I’ve written over 2200 words in the last 24 hours for work so if you’re looking for more content from me you can still find it by searching for my byline on PC World.

Man it is so weird to me that September is almost over. Still trying to nail down a venue for the Dance Party at the End of the World but I’m starting to think it may just be at my place or something. I dunno. It’s been a weird couple of weeks. I sorta feel like I needed a vacation after my vacation to get shit together but I think that’s probably a pretty common feeling after a vacation for a lot of people. Anyway I have some links for you guys today and I think you’re going to enjoy them. Continue Reading »

Gah, I know that the drop in the number of days a week I do this has not really come along with a huge increase in other output. It’s mostly been shuffled into making life less stressful so far which, in my defense, I’ve really needed. Stressful work week when I got back from New York and then I’ve been feeling kinda sick all week this week. Hopefully things will settle down and I’ll actually be productive. Until then, my internets: let me show you them. Continue Reading »

Man this week continues to be way too busy and I’m still trying to get the hang of doing the three times a week schedule up right. It’s cool guys, I believe in me. Do you believe in me? Is this helping at all or does it just seem like a terrible idea? Continue Reading »

So I had an extremely interesting and good (but super weird) day at work and now I’ve got to run off to have a birthday dinner with Nikki. So I hope you’ll excuse the fact that today’s commentary may be a little bit abbreviated. In exchange I’ve found you guys nine whole links. Continue Reading »

Do you guys know what day it is!? It is Monday! I don’t know why I’m excited by that. Anyway after a nice relaxing weekend it is back to ye olde grind with me so hopefully I’ll still be in a good mood in a day or two when I’m writing the next one of these. How about you guys? Did you have a nice weekend? I feel like I never ask how you’re doing anymore it’s all just me me me. Continue Reading »

So in the future when I decide to totally retool my sources so I can find way more great stuff for you guys and really kick things into overdrive…I should probably schedule some time to actually do that stuff in BEFORE I announce it. Fun facts. Anyway I’ve done okay this week at finding stuff and I’m trying to keep the commentary a little meatier than before but I’m sad to say that I’ve only got six posts for today and many of them are of the “old standby” variety. Anyway enough talking shit about these links. Let’s get to why they’re awesome. Continue Reading »

So the good news is that I did in fact get a decent amount of non-OTP work done on Monday. The bad news is that I’m still doing this tired good news bad news format for the my intros. Wait. No. The bad news is that because I work out in the morning and then go to work and then go to dinner with Jane and then run TV club it is difficult to really put in the extra effort on OTP on a tuesday evening. HOWEVER, because I love all of you so much I’m really going to try and give this my all in the future if not like…literally today. Because once again I only have six of these. I hope that’s enough. STOP PRESSURING ME. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 9/12/11

So my trip from New York has finally ended and I’m typing this on a rather janky (and expensive) wireless connection on the flight back to SF. The bad news of the week is that the Kickstarter for the Dance Party at the End of the World has failed. I timed it badly and it never got the exposure I needed it to for various reasons. The good news is I’m not actually that discouraged by the failure. I’ve got a plan B that I think should be pretty viable (smaller space just for the people I know, really plan ahead to scale it up next year) and I’m really excited by the things I saw in New York that I want to steal for various projects (more on all that in a bit). The real revelation of New York however came from actually clearing enough time in my schedule to sit down and think about what I’m doing for the first time in a few months and finding that I actually like that experience. I’ve got a lot of projects I want to work on but I’ve got to shove them in during what little downtime I’ve got and that hasn’t been working all that well.

So effective immediately OTP is going to go to a Monday Wednesday Friday schedule. I talked about this with a lot of people in NY and the general consensus was that at five times a week a lot of people have to end up skipping days now and again to keep up and the whole thing has sorta become a grind for everybody. If you’re disappointed by this news don’t worry too much. If anything I’m hoping that a retooling of my RSS reader and some more time to really hand-pick what makes it in will result in more links per individual OTP that are a bit more off the beaten path than the stuff I’ve been posting lately. To be honest even my interests have drifted away from the stream of cat videos and examples of the future being unevenly distributed. I have a few veins of weirdness I want to explore (along with doubling down on some of the weirder things I haven’t really put the proper amount of time into exploring) and if nothing else you can expect a new boring status quo before too long.

In short you’ll still hopefully see somewhere between 25 and 30 links a week but you’ll only get three e-mails in your inbox. Meanwhile, when you guys are reading on M/W/F I’ll be writing other stuff. Everything from attempting to get some freelancing done outside of the tech world to writing some stand-up/sketches to actually doing some scripts again, starting with a retooled first issue of Dorothy Parker. Please excuse the mess while these changes take hold. I’ve only got seven links for you today for instance but I’m excited about what’s next and hopefully you guys will enjoy it too.

Oh man. They give you WAAAAY too many fries at Five Guys even when you say “small fries.” How did I ever eat that without just going into a coma for a say. What who? Fashion Night Out? I…okay I’ll go get free booze. Wait you mean right now? Oh shit okay I will write OTP then. Continue Reading »
