Other Ten Percent 9/21/12

Sep 21 2012

It was a weird day for links because I felt like I was really short on good links and I was going to have to scramble to get a few last minute ones before I wrote up OTP today. Then I came over here and found that actually I had 12 of them and they were all really great so everything is better than fine. It is also better than fine because it is Nikki’s birthday (when I am writing this) and in fact I need to finish writing this all up so I can head down to her birthday dinner. So let’s do that. Let’s look at links.

You know, I was really expecting to not like this and while it isn’t one of the great animated films of all time or anything it is a super charming little thing that gets its faux period stuff right which almost never happens.

This is what Augmented Reality should look like, just a big solid chunk of virtual stuff accidentally fell into our world somehow.

Amongst The Stars At The Top Of The Chrysler Building
Every so often somebody reminds me that this was a thing and I get so angry that it isn’t anymore. THE SPACE IS JUST SITTING THERE.

what if this comic gets taken down at noon and replaced with the words “GLUTEN IS PERFECTLY SAFE. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.”? what if that happens
This is now the only conspiracy theory that I ascribe to. It makes so much sense! (No it doesn’t) Even if it does mean that the government controls my thoughts like woah.

So I’m Sat There Next to Richard Branson, Right?
Jane Marie continues to be my second favorite Jane. I think Virgin America has kind of traded of Xeni Jardin for Jane Marie (not intentionally) and that trade was a good one.
