Other Ten Percent 8/21/12

Aug 21 2012

God I hadn’t really realized how tired and stressed I was until I got home and realized I hadn’t written up OTP yet. Nikki and I should find out if we got one of the two apartments we applied for in the morning and after that my day will either be very very good or very very bad. These links however will be pretty fun regardless.
The Secret Pool In The Woolworth Building
So sometimes I just think all Scouting NY posts are awesome and elaborate lies meant to make me miss New York more than it actually deserves. Some day that sentence will be used to diagnose me with narcissistic personality disorder.

SPOILER ALERT: the green you see is what i could describe as more of an emeraldy honeydew with elements of teal and shamrock
Once again T-Rex gets unimaginable power over his fellow man (dinosaurs) and uses that power only for good.

Back to School Boot Camp by Glove and Boots
When my kids go off to school for the first time I will just show them this and send them on their way. This is just the latest in our continuing series “David will be a terrible parent.”

Bill Murray Mixed Up by Eclectic Method
I have no idea why this impresses me way more considering that it’s way less technically difficult than the supercuts and elaborate cuts to make, say, Star Trek characters sing Call Me Maybe. Wait, yes I do. It’s because this bothers to create some kind of story instead of lazily relying on the stories of others.

Giant Bird In A Man Suit of the Day
I genuinely don’t know why I find this so hilarious though. Like, I would genuinely watch a weekly sitcom with this premise I find it so amazing.

Your phone knows where you’ll be tomorrow
I’m going to go ahead and list this as one of the least surprising headlines ever. Also, am I flattering myself in my belief that as a weird freelancer this software wouldn’t know what to do with my schedule?

Space Mountain construction advertorial
When is Disney World going to go retro-futurist for real? Because like 1960’s Disney ads are way more likely to make me want to go back than modern Disney ads which seem to be “we will magically kidnap your children to a land of adventure where they will leave you alone.” I get the market segment that’s going after but I feel like even when I want somebody to magically kidnap my kids the nakedness of the message will irk me.

The secret history of shipping pallets
Man, when Cory Doctorow lays off the “war on general purpose computing” kick he’s on lately (where he’s not so much wrong as just kind of one note) the dude still knows how to find the super weird futurist stuff.

Lights Out
This is just kind of a brilliant bit that I wish more bands would jump on to.
