Other Ten Percent 9/14/12

Sep 14 2012

I have written a lot of things today and now I am very tired. The end. That was my new story The Boy Who Wrote Many Things Until he Was Tired Neil Gaiman is in talks to do a comic adaptation. Staring himself. I don’t know how that works. I know how links work though, links on the internet.

Every single topic should be written about in this style at least once for my amusement.

The successor to Web 2.0 graphic design trends
Nikki sent a whole blog of these my way a day or two ago. Once you know they exist you sort of can’t stop seeing them absolutely everywhere. It is distracting and hilarious.

Chess cheating and computers
I think I like reading about chess because I’m actually outrageously shitty at it so if I can’t prove my intelligence by actually playing the game I’ll damn well figure out how to talk about it.

The science of Aquaman
I was hoping this would take it as a bit more of a given that Aquaman somehow worked instead of saying “Aquaman is terrible science” because 1) duh 2) do we really need to have a whole new angle to use to beat up on the poor guy?

City Sculptures Made of Computer Parts by Franco Recchia
Some of these seem insanely detailed and others just look like he took apart an old computer, looked at it for a second and went “meh, good enough.”

So slow in fact that I’m posting this podcast about the two main methods of scriptwriting for comics despite me having had the tab for it open for half a month and nobody else who reads this actually caring much about writing comics. However what the conversation actually ends up being about, without any of the authors involved knowing it, is the different orders in which you can shade a story in from initial conception to full product and how those different orders shape the way the story is told which is pretty applicable across media.
