Other Ten Percent 3/27/13

Mar 27 2013

I seem to have developed this weird quasi-cold that basically only manifests as a mild congestion and sore throat right when I’m going to sleep until like an hour after I wake up. It sucks but is basically not a huge problem. I don’t really have anything else of interest to say. Oh wait, all our newly framed posters and prints are back which means we’re a spring cleaning round and a desk away from actually having the apartment in tip top shape. Good links today as well because I ended up with 20 of them I could whittle down.

Daft Punk hasn’t had a good album in 12 years, but we still love them because we love science fiction
I kinda sorta buy this premise but I don’t understand the bizarre music critic sensibility that says that the ability to narrativize your music somehow detracts from the music or only works on those who don’t understand what they’re doing, as if this weren’t the standard for popular musicians since before there were records. Fun fact Vice: your favorite bands are your favorite because they’ve effectively narrativized their careers as well, you just decided it doesn’t count and is more REAL.

miLES, Repurposing Vacant NYC Storefronts for Short Term Rentals
This is…actually the best idea I’ve heard in quite some time. Somebody tell me why this is doomed to inevitable failure because it kinda feels like somebody finally figured out how to do favella chic New York without just collapsing the entire economy.

Design Fiction: fashion for computer game character design
In a weird way I’m surprised it took Bruce Sterling this long to get interested in video game fashion design.
