Other Ten Percent 4/26/13

Apr 26 2013

Woooooah exactly 10 items from my RSS reader today means let’s write this thing ASAP…also I stupidly locked myself out of the office I was going to do work today and then forgot that I didn’t write OTP and so I’m doing this at 11:20 PM. What I’m saying is not a lot of commentary today.
Ricin letter case enters higher realm of surreality

Guillermo del Toro is making a manga series movie for HBO
Okay so this is a new TV series I’m going to say SUPER EARLY you guys should be excited about because the guy who wrote Monster is basically the best Manga author I know of. I think I’ve mentioned before that he did an incredibly dark, adult version of a storyline from fucking ASTROBOY and it’s one of the best comics I’ve ever read. It’s basically an Asimov robot story as a noir mystery.

Lauren Beukes’s Shining Girls: a serial killer thriller with a time-travel twist
I had a whole long theory about this but I’m too lazy to do it until the next example. Short version: temporal empathy is the new atemporality. I knew what that meant at 11am but now I’m tired and don’t feel like exploring it.

Three new books that will prepare you for the future of humanity
I should…probably read all of these. My best guess is that the first and third of these give a slightly more accurate view of the future but that may just be because I’m relentlessly optimistic about social engagement and relentlessly pessimistic about scientific advancement fixing all our problems.
