Other Ten Percent 3/30/12

Mar 30 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

So Get My Shit Together Thursday went FANTASTICALLY. I got a ton of chores done I’d been meaning to do for weeks, got more writing done than I managed to accomplish yesterday and still had time to play the new WoW beta. I was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. But you know who DIDN’T step up to the plate? The internet. I’m out here giving it my all and the internet is putting out links such that I’ve got to go to the BoingBoing well FOUR TIMES today and I’m still stuck throwing in a Pitchfork link to make this thing happen. Step it up greatest source of cultural information in the history of mankind. I mean COME ON. Continue Reading »

Ugh. You ever have one of those days where you keep waiting for the day to start and then suddenly it’s 6pm and you kinda realize that all the things you were planning to have be the start of your day are actually just not going to happen that day? I totally had that day today. Kept waiting for like interesting news stories or feedback on stories or SOMETHING that would signal it was time to get going and…NOPE. Again: ugh. Officially declaring tomorrow a get my shit together thursday. Time to do chores and crap and get stuff back on track. Also maybe figure out my life or something. No biggie. Anyway one of the things I wish was a bit better today is internet links which are just kinda okay. Continue Reading »

So here we are on Wednesday and things are getting CRAAAAAZY up in here this week. Okay not really it’s actually getting kind of boring as the rain sets in for another wet, boring week in San Francisco but I can still dream that something interesting will happen one of these days can’t I? Something interesting is happening on the internet so there’s that. Yes. Let’s start there with some internet links. Continue Reading »

I feel like today I’ve kind of got too many things to talk about to really be able to do a coherent intro. Mostly I just want to talk about Hunger Games which I went to see Sunday night and which I think was a good but not great movie for reasons that I would explain but apparently my tendency to explain another interpretation of a film that I would prefer kinda makes me the worst guy. Anyway I also have some other links on the internet that we can talk about instead so we’re probably fine. Continue Reading »

Christ is March seriously already almost over? That is…absurd. We’re in yet another long stretch of rainy days and if I get stuck in my apartment for much longer I’m fairly certain I’m going to create a bartender to talk to and then try and murder my whole family. Anyway, on that absurdly dark note, I hope you guys all enjoyed your weekend and lets take a look at some of the links I’ve got in store for you. Continue Reading »

I’m afraid we’re dealing with a bit of an OTP LIGHTNING ROUND tonight because I stayed out too late drinking with a friend. I have a good excuse however: that friend is Lauren Davis of io9 and you’ll be seeing my byline there again as early as this weekend. My first story will be about the time the ghost of Stanley Kubrick showed me the real ending to A.I. Shockingly I’m not even lying. Anyway let’s talk about links for now. Quickly though so I can get it to you by midnight. Continue Reading »

I feel better everybody! So now I just need to be creeped out by the fact that I’ve got no idea why I felt so bad yesterday…so that’s comforting. Anyway today was far more productive but tragically not nearly as interesting so I don’t actually have a ton to say. Let’s just go to the links and see what happens down there. Continue Reading »

It’s 3/21/12 everybody! The date counts down and then it counts up! Amazing! …Yeah that’s the kind of insight you can expect from me today because for some reason I have a terrible headache and my legs hurt. It’s like I have a terrible hangover except I haven’t had anything to drink since last week soooooooo. Anyway to make up for the lack of real, insightful commentary I’ve got some pretty sweet links for you guys today. Continue Reading »

Man is it just me or is Facebook spam REALLY building up lately? It seems like once a day now some friend from High School has clicked on something that auto-posts the thing to his wall and shows every single other person he’s friends with that he was stupid enough to post on “look at this hot girl on the beach.” Since I was stupid enough to accidentally spam all of you with the bizarre homophobic/racist rant thing one time by clicking on a bizarre rant to see what was up with it I kinda don’t want to demonize the random dude from high school but I do think it’s bizarre to watch Facebook slowly degrade. Anyway I have no link for that so I put it up here. I do have these links though. Continue Reading »

I spent most of the weekend playing Mass Effect 3 and learning programming so this is actually my first real writing project since I hammered a few PCWorld things out on Friday. Still I didn’t exactly feel like I didn’t accomplish anything so I’m thinking I maybe need to go for a method with more modest daily goals in more areas or something. The 1000 words each for PCWorld, blogs, and fiction plan is going okay but I maybe need to add a GTD level on top of that or something. Oh hey look, here’s some information that might actually interest you unlike all of that stuff. Continue Reading »
