Other Ten Percent 6/11/12

Jun 11 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

I don’t know what the deal is but I’m entering another phase where I just am not bowled over by the links I’m finding I think I may need to just completely toss out my current crop of RSS feeds and find a completely different set of things to be looking at every day or something. I dunno. That’s not really to talk shit about the quality of today’s links, which I think are fine, it’s just that my general reaction to many things on the internet is now somehow “meh, seen it” which honestly isn’t a good way to approach basically anything on the planet. You haven’t seen these links though so this is all immaterial to you. Unless you have seen them all in which case…good work? Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 6/8/12

Whole hell of a lot of longreads this week so if you’ve got the free time this weekend go ahead and download

And that should sort that out in no time. If you hate e-readers with the fiery passion of 1000 exploding suns then here are some videos you might like.

A two hour documentary on why mathematics drives some mathematicians insane.

How High Can We Build?
10 Minutes on really tall things that humans build.

500 Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, etc.
Aaaaand if those two didn’t take enough of your time then this should handle the rest of your weekend pretty well.

I also failed to include the 12,000 word oral history of Wired post in the ebook since you need to grab it in iOS app form.

Other Ten Percent 6/7/12

Not sure why but today is just not a terribly productive day. I’ve managed to get enough done that I don’t feel like a complete lazy bum but not enough that I actually feel like a productive member of society…and I’m just realizing that it’s because I didn’t work out this morning as I intended to. I’m going to do that once I finish writing this up. Hey, now that I’ve told you about my day let me tell you about the awesome links that I found using the powers of the internet. Continue Reading »

I hate to keep doing rushed OTP entries this week but in my defense my internet access shut off for 7 hours starting at 9:30 this morning in the middle of the big Nintendo press event I was supposed to help cover and in my rush to get out of the house to pass along the few bits I did manage to collect before my internet shut off I locked myself out of the house. So that was all fun. Anyway I collected links for all of you. Continue Reading »

Well today could have been worse considering I burned half the day formatting images about the boring as hell Microsoft keynote at E3. An hour and a half of adding Kinect voice integration to titles that don’t need it and an endless parade of sequels to titles that stopped bothering to differentiate between each game half a decade ago. Top it off with Microsoft announcing that they’d invented AirPlay and the iTunes Music Store and it took everything I had not to go back to sleep. After that was done though I did manage to get in a workout and various small writing projects I’d been putting off for a few days. Still have a how-to to write up but that can probably wait until tomorrow. Anyway I hope you guys were looking forward to some links because I found some for you. Continue Reading »

Welp, I just had like the best weekend ever. Went to see Moonrise Kingdom on Friday with Katherine and Dominick and Nikki (It is amazing and you should all go see it) and then went on a weekend vacation that involved the Winchester Mystery House, Trees and beaches in Santa Cruz, a super swanky hotel in Monterey, Sea Otters, and listening to Beach House driving back up highway 1. I’d say it was the best weekend ever but Nikki apparently returned home to find her roommate had gotten a puppy so she wins. Anyway, forgive me gentle reader but I spent most of my evening after returning catching up on internet and TV and so this is going to be an OTP lightning round. Continue Reading »

So I had this brilliant plan where I saved all the 10 minute plus videos I found during the week and then looked at them today and realized that half of them sucked and quite a few weren’t actually over 10 minutes as I had thought. I did however find a few good videos for you to watch along with a book I want to read (and I think you should too) and of course I made up a readlist of what you probably/maybe skipped during the week because it was too long so you can download an e-book of it and then put it on your iPad and then use it to flirt with boys on the train when they look over your shoulder and ask what you’re reading and you can be all “pfft, cooler stuff than you”…that got specific. Maybe the rest of you can do stuff with it too? Continue Reading »
