Other Ten Percent 8/30/10

Aug 30 2010

GUYS! I just figured out that the theme for my trip to New York will be “the past.” Considering that Suzan will possibly be having a 20’s party while I’m there that was always sorta the plan but then I realized that the Mad Men finale will be airing while I’m there and that Alex wanted to do a sort of high-school throwback night and I decided that the whole trip’s theme will be a different kind of nostalgia every single night. The Past: If I can’t live in the future I’m certainly not living here.

I love Tokyo Flash watches because it’s like you and your watch have a secret code so nobody else can know what time it is. In other news I am kinda a jerk.

I sorta have a theory that for all their talk about how it’ll be game changing for everybody, video games are going to end up being the best use of Augmented Reality.
