Other Ten Percent Year End Link Guide

Dec 31 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

Remember when I told you I’d let you know if Django Unchained wasn’t amazing? Well it was amazing so no need to worry. So for the last post of the year here are ten links I really liked from the last year. Not really the best since I didn’t do a systematic survey but these were 10 that really jumped out at me as I looked over a lot of the posts from the last year. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent Year End Movie Guide

Dec 28 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

You know, I split this up from TV this year because I thought I’d easily get to 10 movies I really enjoyed finally but instead I had to cheat to get up to 8. Still, I figured out a way to get 10 movie related things going on in OTP today. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent Year End TV Guide

Dec 27 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

So as usual when I start off with “I’m not feeling this” I wrote waaaay too many words yesterday. Judging by experience today I will expect to write even more words and therefore top out at like 700 words or something. Anyway today we talk television and I’m not entirely certain what exactly I’m judging here. This isn’t strictly a top 10 list for TV this year because that’d be boring. It’s also not a list of shows you’ve never heard of because…you’ve read OTP before. Instead I guess this is a list of the TV shows I’ve spent the most time thinking about this year? Nine of them, along with the top TV list I’d suggest you guys look toward if you hate my opinions. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent Year End Music Guide

Dec 26 2012 Published by under Experiments

Not going to lie you guys, I’m not sure if its that I’m tired and my apartment is cold or if I just want to play with my presents or what but I’m not really feeling this list all that much at the moment. It might also be that the whole idea of year end top ten lists feels weirdly antithetical to OTP at this point. This blog isn’t really me foisting my opinions on you so much as it is me slowly and subtly shaping the way you process all of reality by picking the things that you should pay attention to. Totally different goals. At the same time I kinda think there’s been enough good music this year that throwing some albums at you is somewhat necessary. I mean seriously, we are living in a rap golden age right now and I kinda think the Kendrick Lamar album everybody’s pointing to when they say that doesn’t even make my top five rap albums of the year. So here, in no particular order, are 9 albums I think you really need to have listened to by the end of the year and another list of top albums you can take a look at if you hate my opinions.

Other Ten Percent Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide Guide

Dec 24 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

So I’m writing this one up the old fashioned way with 10 separate gift guides that I think you guys will enjoy even if you don’t actually have any gifts left to buy for the holidays because you’re actually a responsible adult that did all that weeks ago. If nothing else it can be a good guide to stuff you want to get at after-christmas sales or something. Plan for the rest of the week is to skip Christmas and then do a Other Ten Percent Music, TV and Movie roundup on Wednesday Thursday and Friday. Then I’ll also be talking general links on New Year’s eve. Continue Reading »

Okay so this is probably the last normal OTP of the year. Next week I’m planning to do various best of the year posts but I don’t really have them planned out yet except for Monday which will probably be the super last minute holiday gift guide to holiday gift guides. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 12/20/12

Dec 20 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

Nikki just gave me early Christmas presents and they are AWESOME! She is going home to spend the holidays with her family tomorrow though and that is less awesome. I found links on the internet and they are somewhere between those two extremes on the awesomeness scale. Continue Reading »

Dec 19 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

Woah, hit 10 exactly. I am impressed with myself even though that is in no way an achievement (: The David Daw story? Oooooh sweet self-burn.). Anyway, I did in fact find 10 links so I’d might as well pass them along to you. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 12/18/12

Dec 18 2012 Published by under Daily Posts

Working on a big project that I’m trying to get done by the new year but it kinda requires bootstrapping my half-baked knowledge of Ruby into making a Ruby on Rails site by the end of the year. Sooooo yeah I dunno if everybody who actually knows how to code is laughing at me right now or not but I feel like they are. Now I distract you by curating other people’s content from the web.
