Jun 22 2010

Today I set up the media center for the living room and then totally failed to enliven Liz’s radio show. Now I’m doing this. I feel like doing a quick OTP today.

Scouting NY posts a pretty thing and then I blog about it. That’s just how we role at Other Ten Percent.

*Urban Planning* *Destruction*
Razing the City to Save the City

Being vaguely sociopathic I find Detroit fascinating from the perspective of aggressive urban planning as well as from the perspective of recovering from economic collapse.

*Being Dumb* *Errol Morris*

I like all these Errol Morris articles a lot.

*Art* *Crafts*
Embroidered Animation

Because regular animation just is not time-consuming enough.

This is pretty and that’s really all I have to say on the matter.

*Architecture* *Underground*

It is a shame that I go totally crazy without sunlight because I tend to think living underground would be awesome.

*Space* *Light*

I’d like to know more about this but I suck at foreign languages so I’m just going to pretend like it’s a space pharmacy for androids.

*Robots* *Art*
Designer Turns His First Car in to a Transformer

This does not actually transform and so it is not technically a transformer.

Webcomics Roundup
Dinosaur Comics has an awesome story under the actual comic which is pretty good too.
