Nick: So here we are, at the end of your day, and I’ve been thinking… this just about sums it up.
Happy Birthday, Nick!
I love you.
Remember, while you get to be like Remus today… everyone just has to put off introducing your face to their fists until tomorrow.
Might want to make a mental note.
Yeah… that’s Castiel riding a giagantic 4 foot tall unicorn. Just a little something I did with my weekend. Dig it.
Now that GISHWHES 2013 is over… this sums me up perfectly. I’ve created something magical but am not sure what to do next. Staring off stoically into the middle distance will have to do.
The issue is NOT that Moffat didn’t cast a woman (or a person of color of any gender*). It’s that the thought of casting one NEVER SEEMED TO ENTER INTO THE EQUATION. It’s as ludicrous to him that a woman would be the Doctor as a man would portray The Queen. Both represent a type of drag performance that might be amusing but certainly not authentic. And given that science fiction/fantasy is a place where “what if” and “why not” have their safest homes, it’s disheartening to see limitations put on a show that is, by its design, utter limitless […]
Had I not heard these rumblings before today’s special, Moffat’s comment about The Queen probably wouldn’t have raised an eyebrow. Had Moffat’s companions been strong, independent figures that weren’t ignorant of their own origins, Moffat’s comments would have gone unnoticed. Instead, his comments formed a triptych along with the other two elements that suggest a large, systemic problem that has absolutely no bearing on Capaldi’s capacity to play the Doctor but everything to do with Moffat’s ability to steer that ship.
Instead of focus on the new Doctor, maybe we should be focused on getting a new showrunner. The TARDIS can go anywhere in time and space. But Moffat seems stuck on the same patch of antiquated soil."
There are endless reasons the internet is a glorious thing…
Sometimes you find an article that’s so incredible you just want to copy-paste the entire thing into a post and put giant flashing neon signs on it that scream:
This is one of those posts.Seriously, go read the whole thing.
*tweaked the original quote to be more inclusive. But for the most part, yeah.
I think my mother must have taken her parenting style from David Bowie!
No wonder I’m so amazing and so fucked at the same time.
Exactly how I feel when someone awkwardly asks me to show them my ID… when they haven’t carded anyone else I’m with. Damn this baby face.
Finally got done with a part of the funeral procession and I just…
