Other Ten Percent 1/30/13

Jan 30 2013

Guys, I slept! Though judging by how OTP went yesterday I maybe should not sleep more often. Sure it was kinda insane but it went by quickly and I thought it worked pretty well for the most part.
Ask a Victorian Lady Lounger
Man, people really knew how to title books in the 19th century. Both these book titles are now just hilarious album names though and the anonymous authors are both pretty spectacular band names.

Bad Lip Reading of the Day
We can all agree now that this is what Beyonce was actually singing right? I mean I know I JUST posted a thing that said she wasn’t actually lip synching but…I changed my mind.

Montage of Kickstarter Project Videos That Start With “Oh Hey, I Didn’t See You There”
Well, looks like it’s time for me to retire that joke. I’m a little offended that I didn’t actually get into this video but I guess they’re limiting it to videos for Kickstarters that “didn’t fail.” Fine. See if I care.

Seth Godin on the suckiness of airports
Nothing really mind-blowing here but I do think this is an entertaining angle on the whole thing.

Oh man, especially since I started watching a bunch of stuff I normally wouldn’t to write up Now Streaming…I’m pretty shocked Nikki hasn’t broken up with me due to Netflix’s suggestions yet.

Lehmann Aviation L-A series, fully automatic UAV (drone) for…
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. It’s a plane that flies itself and creates a dynamic route to scout an area if you just throw it up in the air. It costs less than a Macbook Pro.

Russian family isolated from other people for 40 years
I am fascinated by people who drop out of history even though I think we kinda romanticize the insight that gives them it’s still pretty fucking cool to hear what they have to say.

The CW greenlights a reboot of the classic British TV series Tomorrow People
I am so down for this. I mean it’s only ever going to be supernatural level “so bad it’s good” sci-fi but…it’s the Tomorrow People so that’s pretty much the best you were going to do anyway. Teleportation is pretty much the best superpower though so a bunch of sexy teens who can teleport is kinda the best possible show for the CW to greenlight. I am assuming their sexy anyway (though that would be a SHOCKING DEVIATION FROM CANON) and this isn’t the first CW show in history where they’re just going to grab a few moderately attractive girls and a homely dude or two.
