If you were into PC gaming in the early 2000s, there’s a good chance you’ve seen at least one video of Counter Strike gameplay with this song as the soundtrack:
With the return of the X-Files in form of a miniseries, I was tempted to catch up on the original run of the show, since I had only seen the occasional episode in the late 90’s or early 00’s (my mom was a big fan). Being me, I already looked up the X-Files episodes ratings on trakt.tv to see if there’s something interesting about them, but I didn’t think there was. However, when I listened to the Incomparable talking about the show, I learned that apparently X-Files can be divided into the “myth arc” and regular, more stand-alone episodes. That’s when I realized I need to get my tv show analysis boots on and try to see what I could do. To my delight, I noticed that the appropriate Wikipedia article neatly marks the myth arc episodes, ready for plucking.
And then I started plucking.
I’m late to the game, I know, but I’ve been keeping a list of notable shows I watched in 2015 since spring, and I think I owe it to past-me to put that in blog-form.
So I’ve been watching Marvel’s Jessica Jones over the past couple days, as one does, and I have opinions and stuff about it. However, since I believe that a plot is worth more than word stuff, I present to you my viewing expierence in data.
Please note that this analysis is out of date and the code to acquire the data no longer works, since the source website has restructured and I have not found a way to reproduce the old behavior. Also, the current analysis is located at https://worldpenis.tadaa-data.de, so please go there for up to date code and analysis. It’s prettier. And better.
If there’s one thing I just can’t resist, it’s publicly available tabular data containing adequate amounts of numeric values. Naturally, I couldn’t resist the World Penis Data I stumbled upon somewhere over at Reddit.
So, let’s suck that data out of the web and put it into our favorite data structure.
