Other Ten Percent 6/14/13

Jun 14 2013

You know, I don’t have any big sweeping declarations about anything to make and all of the projects I’ve been working on are either too large to be finished yet or too small for OTP so let’s just do a traditional link roundup where I talk about stuff. Once Google Reader breaks in a few weeks we may not have the ability to do these again anytime soon.

Raging Heroes: kickstarting all-woman armies of RPG miniatures
So this kind of stuff is what it actually looks like when 3D printing changes the world. It isn’t going to feed starving children in Africa anytime soon or lead to a classless utopia but it’s going to make people’s reality subtly better in ways traditional manufacturing really wasn’t well equipped for before now.

How to invent things: edit your mess
I can’t tell if this is the kind of advice that actually is true or that just feels fundamentally true and then turns out the be basically unfollowable in practice. Like there are a few steps in creating a huge mess and then maximizing for the mistakes that seem most interesting to you that border on “2.??? 3. Profit” territory but it also does seem like when you actually think of a good idea you usually stumble on it through fucking up somehow sooooooooooo…..

Composite Aerial Photo Map of San Francisco in 1938
So my first thought about this is that I find it way more compelling than modern day Google Earth and the second thing is that I really want to figure out how to use this in this year’s Dance Party at the End of the World.

Kanye West is a confident young man
So Kanye’s been getting a lot of shit for this interview and to be sure there are parts of this where he goes off the deep end (the whole Steve Jobs section is just bizarre) but there’s also a ton of stuff in here that has Kanye articulating stuff about his persona and his music that I really don’t think I’ve ever heard him or anybody else discuss this clearly.

Here’s that Beastles album you’ve been waiting for!
I have not yet listened to this but the first two Beatles/Beastie Boy mashup albums by DJ BC were some of my favorite mashup albums ever.

Hark, a Vagrant: Alexanders
I kind of want to start writing books marked to 8-13 year olds just so I can get my publisher to have Kate Beaton draw the cover.

Will TV’s Best Actress Get the Award For Best TV Actressing?
Orphan Black is so good I’m genuinely pissed a genre show has no chance of winning an Emmy for the first time since I graduated high school and figured out how the Award Show world worked.

Lifeloggers
I somehow feel these guys are NOT going to make the idea of having a camera strapped to your head feel a lot cooler or safer to the general public.
