Other Ten Percent 2/1/13

Feb 01 2013

And now I write up a quick OTP before installing XMBC on a Raspberry Pi to write about that before I get ready to go to another Sketchfest thing. Hopefully I will write the end of the Adventure Time episode I’m 2/3rds done with but I think that’s actually probably a job for tomorrow when I don’t have OTP, or anything else really, in the way.

Can you fly a plane on Mars?
It seems like I need to stop paying attention to this thing as a service to you guys because I go through phases where I check it pretty much every week and I always go “meh, that’s okay I guess” and then once I finally give up I immediately see a post from somebody going “this week’s XKCD question is AMAZING.” And it always is.

Fleetwood + 2 Chainz = “The (2) Chain (z)”
As Nikki says this guy kinda specializes in Trollin all of the dad jams. All of them. That was fairly true of his big megamix mashup from December but now that he’s doing an entire album of Fleetwood Mac mashups and starts with 2 Chainz…yeah he’s trollin all the dad jams.

SF Fauxtest 2013, A Fake Protest for San Francisco
Dammit is this just going to be the year of people getting famous for ideas either I or Jane came up with like 8 years ago? Because I totally remember Jane doing this bit in like 2005. Also our fake protest ideas were WAY better than these. Although I stand behind the no socks with sandals thing obviously.

Single Topic Blog of the Day
I kept forgetting about this because even though 6 different people sent it my way nobody ever blogged it. Now somebody blogged it though and you can appreciate the only menswear site most of you will ever need.

Chinese hackers infiltrate New York Times, New York Times points out
Like I say I’ve been really impressed with the NYT lately but still if you’d told me even two days ago that the most impressive technology reporting in January was going to be a Times jam I don’t think I would have believed you.
