Other Ten Percent 1/1/2013

Jan 01 2012

Happy New Year you guys! I wanted to make every post today a year end roundup from somebody else and while I came close I also found a few too many entertaining links that don’t fit that theme over the week and a half of not grabbing anything from my RSS reader so I had to abandon it. I almost made it though. Almost. I also (with a lot of help from Nikki) almost have my new coding project finished. It’s a site that’ll keep track of all my fiction writing projects and let you download the latest version of any of them for you to read and tell me I suck. I was hoping to have it done by today but I think it’ll be a few days before it’s really ready for you guys to look at but that’s fine since I’ll also need to populate it with some content before there’s any point in sending you the link. Eventually it’ll have all 30 of those scripts I promised to write (and guys at least 15 of them are going to be DISASTERS of epically entertaining proportions. I apparently committed to figuring out how to write a script to RuPaul’s Drag Race?) along with any other fiction I end up writing this year. Eventually it’ll also be able to tweet you when I update with a new draft or change the status to say there’s a completed first draft or that I’m done with something or whatever but for now it just spits out all the writing projects that currently have a draft along with their status, word count and a link to the latest draft.
What are the big issues of 2013 going to be?
So this links to the yearly Bruce Sterling talk on the Well but Stross is right that that conversation kinda evolves the same way every year (even Sterling points that out this year) so probably you should skip everybody on The Well except for Sterling himself and just read the comments on Stross’s page if you want more content.

Eminem is a skilled Donkey Kong player
Okay this link is not at ALL a big year end/next year post but seriously what the hell? Who knew? Eminem is probably in the top 100 or so Donkey Kong players in the world?

I’m only loving about half of these but it’s so weird that this exists that I felt the need to include it in today’s list.

Oh also since I’m still in a mood where I REALLY enjoyed Django Unchained here is Tarantino doing commentary over the entire soundtrack.
