Other Ten Percent 11/3/10

Nov 03 2010

Okay so I have apparently started grinding my teeth when I sleep which is giving my tremendous pain in my jaw when I wake up. Hooray.

*History* *Lies*
The Berners Street Hoax
http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/archive/permalink/the_berners_street_hoax/
This is awesome. History is awesome.

*Fashion* *Facts*
Tweed 101
http://www.gilt.com/manual/2010/10/tweed-101/
Ordinarily I shut the hell up about what I find on fashion blogs because who cares how I want to dress. But this falls enough into the fun fact catagory I thought I’d include it.

*Video* *How-To*
The Gentleman’s Guide to Villainy
http://blog.drawn.ca/post/1462652117/the-gentlemans-guide-to-villainy-by-aidan
An informative guide I think we could all use.

*Interior Design* *Organization*
Alphabetic Bookshelf
http://www.swiss-miss.com/2010/11/alphabetic-bookshelf.html
If I had about half the books I currently have I would totally get this.

*Cartography* *Comics*
A Map of Jack Kirby’s Sentient Dolphin Utopia
http://io9.com/5679431/a-map-of-jack-kirbys-sentient-dolphin-utopia
It says a lot about how weird Jack Kirby was that Stan Lee became the sensible, public-facing part of that duo.

*Music* *Streaming*
First Listen: Cee-Lo Green, ‘The Lady Killer”
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130913191&sc=fb&cc=fmp
I am not really in the right mental head space to give this album a try right now but I’m hoping it’ll be really good. Or at least better than the last Gnarles Barkley.

*Art* *Underground*
The Underbelly Project — A Secret Art Gallery Beneath the Streets
http://www.asylum.com/2010/11/02/the-underbelly-project-secret-subway-street-art/
Well this is almost too brilliant.

*Lighting* *Violence*
Lamp Design Concept of the Day
http://thedailywh.at/post/1456313755/lamp-design-concept-of-the-day-bang-lights
Oh my God I want every light in my apartment to work like this.

*Design* *Failure*
Design Nonfiction: Why Great Ideas Can Fail
http://www.wired.com/beyond_the_beyond/2010/11/design-nonfiction-why-great-ideas-can-fail/
As it usually is when I link to Beyond the Beyond the Bruce Sterling commentary on the link is kinda more interesting than the link itself. But they’re both good.

*Video Games* *Holidays*
Game Controller Ornaments

Merry Christmas Chris.
