So I had misgivings.






I no longer have misgivings.

Am I the only one who feels like Moffat has absolutely no respect for his audience's intelligence with this season's arc? Let me break it down for you under a cut.

Break it down for the children. )

To illustrate my point, watch this fan video.

In case there is anyone who, like me, did not know there was a cast album for David Tennant and Catherine Tate's Much Ado About Nothing, there is.

No, really:


In other news, I have a computer again. That means I have to honest-to-goodness work on my prospectus again. Which means that I am in a low-level panic at all times again. Only more so.

I'm just gonna go listen to David Tennant and Catherine Tate sing again.

♥ So. Um. I tend to be a bit...monomaniacal about new tv shows that I like. I can't be alone in this; this is the internet, for crissakes.* So I watched a couple of episodes of Parks and Recreation earlier this season and I could see it coming. "Oh boy," I said to myself, "you are gonna go mental for this show." But I postponed it. Mostly because I was too lazy to download "acquire" all the episodes.

Then I watched the entire three season run in two and a half days. I didn't do much sleeping. Or eating. Or....moving.

But it was soooooooooo good. I think this may be my favorite moment of television history:

"I'm like an elephant, OK, if I walk into a room, it's like, OK, he's in there."
"....ba-ba-booie."

The other funniest thing of EVER:


ALSO. I watched all of the things that Youtube had to offer after I got caught up--the withdrawal was fierce in this one--and I saw this interview with Adam Scott. I kind of want to walk hand-in-hand through romantic 80's romantic montages with him. And scrunch his face. Especially when he explains how easy it is to fall in love with Leslie Knope/Amy Poehler.

My withdrawal was not helped, bee-tee-dubs, by the fact that the finale was not, you know, finale-ish.

* Side note: turns out, no Rapture today. I woke up this morning and thought to myself--yeah, I wouldn't mind. It was pretty this morning. I was feeling good. I read a book about catching art thieves in a flowery glade for a couple of hours. Hell yes, I wouldn't mind the world ending on a note like that. Only it didn't. Bummer. Or. You know. The opposite of bummer.

♥ Also. Doctor Who. I was not fond of this episode. I think this series is a bit top heavy with two-parters for one thing. I don't think it helps that this is one of the sort of standard set pieces of the reboot Doctor Who catalog, the "oh, the philosophical dilemmas we've raised! now fight people lots!" trope. It's been done, is what I'm saying. It's not bad, it's just old. And you didn't need a two-parter for it. Who called second Doctor in the first five minutes? And the script wasn't up to the standards of this series--not in charm or crackle. It just seemed a bit....flat.

On the other hand, I was sort of waiting for an episode not to soar high above all others of its type from previous series (as the other four this season have done). It's nice to have the shoe actually drop. And there was no way to match last episode. It made me ship a box, for goodness sake. A box.

OK, so I have the emotional memory of a goldfish, right--that's my preface to this entry. Or a warning. It could be more like a warning. ANYWAY.

But I never remember the RTD series being this good. I mean...last season was killer, yeah, and this two parter....I am still catching my breath. Like, literally. I was jumping up and down on the sofa. Just. OMG, yo.

and now I waffle in specifics )

GOD, WHY IS THERE SO MUCH TIME BETWEEN WEEKS. COULD WE NOT MAKE THEM SHORTER, JUST FOR AS LONG AS DOCTOR WHO IS AIRING EPISODES? KTHX.

So somehow all this Harry Potter nostalgia business lead to me re-watching Doctor Who episodes and now I'm making a list. I like lists. I'm the opposite of organized in most ways but I really do like a good list.

This is my Top Ten Episodes of DW (since the reboot in 2005)

This way madness lies... )

Now that I've gotten that out of my system....I want to make more lists. I love lists. Can anyone think of other things I can make lists of? Top Fives? Anything?

Dear Doctor Who and staff:

WTF?!?!

But well done, chaps. Bubbly on the house!

Yours (No, for absolute realsies, as the song says, Baby, I'm yours),
Bessie. XOXO.

So, for news in real life for starters -- two of my co-workers finish their year of service this Friday. I will miss them both but I am VERY happy for them. Both have cool plans for the future and are gonna be much happier once they get out of this hellhole.

In other news, I have developed a new obsession. It is Life on Mars, a British drama that ended about a year ago. The premise is that Sam Tyler, a DCI in Manchester in 2006, wakes up after a car crash to find himself demoted (now a DI instead of a DCI) and back in time, in 1973.

So I did what I do when I develop obsessions, I made icons. Plus many thousand other oddities made into icons.  )

Also, I made a couple of wallpapers. I only just started attempting it, so they are ugly. I will get better, though. )

Another mass deposit in icons. It seems like I haven't been doing much else for the past couple of weeks. I have a had a LOT of boring downtime in the office, with the end of the school year coming up and nobody applying online to YV.

There was no-one in the office with me today and nothing to do...so I made many more icons! Bwahaha!

I have been in a frenzy of Icon Challenges recently so I thought I'd post'em all here.
