Other Ten Percent 12/3/13

Dec 03 2013

Hey guys just a quick update that a week and a half ago when OTP didn’t show up in the morning that’s because it got caught in Dreamhost’s announce list service and should be arriving in your inbox some time in the past that’s hopefully as far back in the past as it can be without causing some sort of temporal paradox now that I’ve written this. This has been “discovering the tech support implications of writing OTP weeks in advance” with Other Ten Percent. Also, just letting you know, I am FOR SURE going to screw up the date stamping of at least one entry now that I’m writing these for December while it’s still November and you will get something meant for like, a month from now, in the middle of the week and I’ll feel dumb. Links!

Scenes From The Book of Revelation I Look Forward To Seeing on Sleepy Hollow
Oh man this is my new absolute favorite game to play with how insane Sleepy Hollow is. Before it was just making up fake episode synopses, putting them next to the real ones and asking people to guess which was which.
