And then I thought some more

About the fact that getting dressed in the dark makes for some interesting appearances when one gets to work, as I realized that pinstripe Converse with polka-dot jeans looks... kinda stupid. I am guessing that no one at my office cared except me.

One thing I forgot in that previous post: This is the second time the Doctor has taken the face of someone he's actually met before (Caecilius from Pompeii).

Doctor Who Humor (it's very silly):



Today I listened to some old Nerdist podcasts I needed to catch up on. A few weeks ago (right after ComicCon) he had Joss Whedon on. It was a good podcast, but I was especially delighted to hear Joss Whedon say that A Little Princess is his all-time favorite book ("Really? Me, too!!!") and that every movie version of it has been terrible ("I quite agree!"), and he would love to be able to make a good one someday. ("OMG, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!")

The new Doctor Who actually made a Morning Edition segment on NPR today.

Doctor Six. Colin Baker had previously appeared as "Maxil," in "Arc of Infinity," a Doctor Five story. There's a lot of fan wank about that being one of the clues about Doctor Six's "unstable regeneration," that he'd take on the face of someone who had worked against him back on Gallifrey.

A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I've read it about fourteen million times, starting when I was in 5th grade. There are two movie versions, and THEY BOTH SUCK. The '95 version gets all kinds of rave reviews about how it handled "the magical realm of childhood" blah blah blah, but leave out the fact they STILL SCREWED UP THE BOOK.

It was kinda nifty to hear Joss Whedon saying it was his favorite book, too.

Ah okay, that's very interesting.

I'm totally unfamiliar with the book and the movies, how sad. It is neat though that Joss loves it

If you ever feel the need to read it, try and find a copy with the Tasha Tudor illustrations. They're really lovely.
