EW. EW. EWEWEW. Oh my god, I don't even know if I want to continue watching.
On the other hand, what a beautiful idea.

Ok, so, Doctor Who season finale. Not quite as good as I hoped. It got downright silly at times, but still, Spoilers for Season Finale! And an audience poll! And pictures! )

When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who (classic or new series) on your LJ.
From the awesomeness of School Reunion:
"Correctamundo! A word I've never used before, and hopefully never will again..."

Since everybody seems to be doing it...
This week's Doctor Who was ridiculously awesome. And very scary.
Go watch "Blink" now!

Very Short Stories, in Wired Magazine. All the exciting SF&F and horror writers produce... six word stories. The above link will take you to the text of all the stories. The picture takes you to the illustrated ones. :)

Oh, and I watched the first episode of Torchwood. It looks potentially promising, but I think the BBC is trying a little too hard to be edgy.

So, things of note...
Iron Maiden yesterday. Fucking awesome. Totally epic.
They're about 100 times better live than they are on their CD's. I mean, their music is fun but not that amazing but their concerts ROCK SO HARD OMG.
Today, Museum of Science with my advisor, associate advisor, Lindley (a girl in my advising group) and Ira. Who's not in my advising group, but Prof. Alexandre said bring a friend, so I invited him, and introduced him by saying, "This is Ira. He's my plus one. Is that alright?"
Unfortunately, none involved were Doctor Who fans, but I squeed madly on the inside, so that is all that matters.
Um, the Body Worlds exhibit was pretty awesome. You should go see it. It made me very pensive.
Also, we saw The Beatles Laser Light Show, which was fun, and ate ice-cream on Main St. Oh, and Ira had a fourteen dollar salad on the Institute.
Oh, and I got Outlook to display dates in a sane format, ie D/M/Y. However, I'm still confused by the ground floor being the first floor and everytime I go to 4th HNC in Senior House, I want to go up an extra floor.
Um... now I'm off to the Epic Party, I may also stop by 4E...

Oh, the Doctor Who season finale broke my heart. Really. I felt slightly better but still rather weepy after this piece by [ profile] amanuensis1 which is just sweet and wonderful and SO VERY DOCTOR.
But my heart! It is in pieces, how sad.
Rest assured, Doctor deprived friends, you shall have access to my episodes and then your hearts will break too and we can be weepy together. (I'm talking to you, Crystal and Raina)

Doctor Who Icons.
Because I was bored, and also because I'm obsessed.

sinclair_furie: (good omens)
1. I read Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. And. And.
I cannot believe it's been out since 1990, and I've gone sixteen years without reading it. It is amazing. Quite possibly one of the best books, and probably the funniest, I've ever read. Aziraphale and Crowley (An Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards) are adorable. I mean, Aziraphale says "my dear" all the time, drinks tea and likes old books. They feed ducks together and listen to Tchiakovsky's "Another One Bites the Dust!"
Some quotes:
Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: "Learn, guys."

The kraken stirs. And ten billion sushi dinners cry out for vengeance.

Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide.
Oh, and they're rather slashy in a completely asexual way. Fahad even agrees... because we know that angels are sexless unless they try very hard.
Oh, just go read it. Now. :D

2. I watched Breakfast on Pluto, starring Cillian Murphy.
It's a pretty good movie. Sort of... heartwarming in a depressing way. And Cillian Murphy is very, very pretty, as I pointed out earlier.
As [ profile] katranna put it earlier, "how can you not like a movie about transsexuality, IRA terrorists, Oscar Wilde-quoting robins, and the power of believing in glam rock music?"
So it's Irish and about finding yourself and all that, and Cillian Murphy plays Patrick "Kitten" Braden and it's got Stephen Rhea being a magician and it's lots of fun. Lovely characters. Though sometimes I couldn't decide between wanting to squish Kitten in a hug or smack him for his... naivete, I guess.

3. I've started watching Doctor Who.
It's quite entertaining. I feel like I'm vaguely taking part in this British cult phenomenon, and judging from what I know about the BBC, Doctor Who is sort of... the quintessence of British Television. Between the humor, the low budget effects and the horrible teeth... Seriously, I'm feeling this bizarre sort of empathy.
I love Douglas Adams and I drink tea. Granted, I drink my tea black and in coffee mugs. But still, in an alternate universe, I could so totally have been British.
Also, Doctor (Nine)/Rose! (Spoilers in the last two pictures, scroll slowly)
