Other Ten Percent 6/27/12

Jun 27 2012

I had another good but not greatly productive day but I feel like things are going to turn around after tomorrow. I also feel like I have to get this written up quickly because it’s already 11:30. Here we go with a lightning round of some pretty awesome links.

80 Teddy Ruxpins with robot voices tell you how the Internet feels
I already had two people tell me I need to be talking about this and it’s not hard to see why. It’s just twisted enough to pull you in and then in practice it happens to be SUPER FASCINATING.

Profile of Uniqlo and its CEO, Tadashi Yanai
As you may be aware, I’m a pretty big fan of UNIQLO and I’m psyched they’re coming to SF this fall. This profile just makes me even more excited about the whole thing.

Treasure Island Music Festival Lineup
You know, for a music festival on an island in the middle of the bay the trip out to Treasure Island last year was pretty stress AND douche free and the line up this year is about 5 times as good as it was last year. I think I’m going to buy two day tickets because at the very least I’d like to see both headliners.

Leap Second Scheduled for June 30, 2012
Leap second party at my place on saturday!

National Trust audio tour of Soho London’s darker side
Sooooo one of my London friends needs to test this out for me. Since I don’t think Bethany actually reads this that would probably mean you Jenny.

Improv Everywhere’s MP3 Experiment Nine Returning to New York City
Similarly, one of my New York friends needs to go to this and tell me how it goes down.

Jim Henson improvising on the set of The Muppet Movie was pure magic
You know, I assumed that this headline was going to be at least a slight exaggeration but then when Fozzy and Kermit get into a totally meta argument about how they are both puppets and not animals it turned out it WAS pure magic.

Geometry Daily
And now, a tumblr of cool looking shapes and stuff.

The Bible’s book of Revelation explained
You know, as much as I love Revelations as John getting super high this both makes way more sense AND has the benefit of being a bitchy historical smackdown. The fact that it might be both a political polemic AND John getting super high just makes the whole thing that much better.

This flying robot light show is the coolest thing you will see all day
Ummmmmm. Yeah it is. Man is the future ever here but not evenly distributed because this shit is weird as crap but nobody is going to say boo about stuff like this in even 5 years. Like the first three minutes of this is spent being FUCKING AMAZED at this show’s existence and then the rest of the video is spent wondering how long it will be till all this is pedestrian.
