Other Ten Percent 1/24/13

Jan 24 2013

On Monday I wrote 3/4ths of a Children’s Hospital episode. Today I will write 3/4ths of an Adventure Time episode. These accomplishments sound more impressive when you don’t know those shows are 11 minutes long. Making my accomplishments sound more impressive than they are is my new jam. Join me for so many links it rolled over to a second digit won’t you?

The more-certain future of Aquarius, the last undersea science lab

“Ignition (Remix),” R. Kelly
OF COURSE the Hairpin celebrates the 10th anniversary of Remix to Ignition. And while they do it up right let me give you a hot tip they failed to mention. In addition to its many other virtues it’s also the best song in the entire world to use with Infinite Jukebox.

We Need to Talk About Elvis
You know when I was a kid I never really understood people’s obsession with Elvis because the music kinda didn’t do that much for me. I now realize basically nobody was EVER obsessed with Elvis because of the music so much as because he was just a fascinating dude.

Objectify a Male Tech Writer Day
Okay so first of all since everybody I’ve shown this to has responded the same way. I may be the only male tech writer you personally know but you can objectify ones you don’t know to. This is starting to make me feel uncomfortable…waaaaaaaaaaait a second. Also Leigh Alexander is legitimately my favorite games writer right now and is straight up a genius. Patrick actually handed her a story he had assigned to me earlier this month and I was actually more flattered I’d been considered for a story she could write than upset that I was losing work.

“The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, is hoping to implement a global…”

Photos: Inside Disneyland’s Club 33 During the Holiday Season
So we’ve established that my disney theme park obsession isn’t nearly Doctorow level but it is high enough that I really want to get into Club 33 before I die. Especially now that the Adventurer’s Club is gone.

Choire Sicha on “The New Way We Make Web Headlines Now”
It’s really sad that my first thought was that maybe this would give me some tips on writing up better headlines.

I can’t stop watching these private feeds from insecure webcams
Okay so eventually this starts to feel super creepy but I’m kinda surprised this hasn’t become the new Chat Roulette or something because it’s also weirdly addictive at first.

These WWII nurses in gas masks look like retro-futuristic superheroes
Who wants to write a comic about these nurses with me? Because clearly I don’t have enough other things to write first…Who wants to write a comic about these nurses FOR ME?
