Other Ten Percent 12/11/12

Dec 11 2012

Well that was close. Half the things I prepped for OTP today didn’t appear in Evernote for some reason and I had to unfavorite them and then favorite them again to get them to pop over here. The glamorous life of an internet blogger. Oh hey here you go, here are those links I was talking about.

Assortment: YACHT, Food, Small Apartments

I’m always happy to have more YACHT but I’m not totally sure what I think of this song yet. I think I need to hear it in the context of an album first. Also in the context of not having this video which is…not what I think of when I think of YACHT, despite the triangles and the cute little dances. All the…less cute stuff overpowers.

Death Of A Little Printer

Oh hey it turns out the Little Printer was a product like other products confined to the earthly sphere and it breaks and doesn’t work as intended for everybody on earth like other products. I’m not really ragging on anybody with that since I don’t know anybody who really thought any differently (well probably there was SOMEBODY who was convinced that this product was going to be free of compromise and it would be perfect as only a product free of large corporate interests can be but WELP we’ve all kickstarted some hardware by now.) in fact I kind of want one of these more now that I know it in a “non-platonic-ideal-of-an-internet-of-things-gadget” sort of way. I guess I just find it interesting because it’s the first time I’ve seen something about it that DIDN’T seem like a promo.

#NYANCATCITY, A 4-Day Nyan Cat Pop-Up Event in New York City

Yeah okay I officially am bored by the way we’re instantiating internet culture into the real world at this point. Between this and Good Morning America telling me what memes are popular now when I’m at the gym I’m kind of wondering when we start having the non-tumblr parts of the internet leak out into reality.

Hand drawn map of NYC

“Why are there so few walls in the world?” is fast becoming a central philosophical question in my life.

Every Utopia That’s Fit To Print

Dumcombe made io9 you guys! Also Evernote wants to make io9 ion every time and it’s really really annoying.

Congressman calls for ban on 3D printed guns

Well this was pretty inevitable. Every part of it really including the bit where there isn’t even an attempt to figure out enforcement.

Video proof that the Inception BRAAAM is being used in every trailer, everywhere

Also, as the comments point out the noise WAY predates Inception but we can all agree that’s why every movie trailer on earth is using it lately right?

the movie version should be called “Case #1023 Is Coming To Town” and ends with Rudolph putting on the Old Silk Hat, his organic-matter-destroying radiation becoming a separate entity, and then Case #1023 it forced to — but I don’t want to spoil it!

We’re fast approaching the point where Ryan North makes a better SCP project than SCP does. Also Nikki and I finally figured out what level we’re donating to the Hamlet kickstarter at. The $75 level gives us a hardback and a paperback copy AND two copies of most of the goodies along with the plushie Yorick skull and the choose your adventure audio book which I assume is going to be an app but I still want to see how he pulls it off.
