I'm feeling very restless but too headachey to do anything about it. I resent this a great deal. Also bought a bag of almonds tonight with the express intention of sitting down and eating it a lot, but had to give up after only a few. Almonds, I will give you this, you are a very filling nut.

Also watched SJA, which was delightful! It has been some time since I watched SJA, for reasons which I shall not go into, and I am so glad I got to see these two particular episodes. I found out a while ago that many respectable and awesome people do not in fact watch SJA, which is sad and slightly shocking, as they do not have my reasons, merely the Fear Of Spinoff. At the time I wrote a whole thing about why they should which essentially boiled down to:

- It has Sarah-Jane goddamned Smith.
- It has K9.
- It has the motherfucking Brig.
- It has great character chemistry, continuity and dialogue.
- Speaking of continuity it handles Classic References supremely well, see:
a) That time SJ randomly referenced Peladon in casual conversation in a way that was relevant without alienating (please take this on board, New Who. Mythos can be both created and reinforcing Classic w/out having to take a dip in the Exposition Ocean. Check also: 'I Have A History That Is More Than Just Showing You My Faces In Order'.)
b) In a move very similar to Dalek, SJ, who is consistently 'no we don't use guns, we never involve the military, this is not our way' aaaalll S1, flipping the fuck out upon meeting the Sontarans and calling up UNIT. For people who've never seen Classic you can just go 'ooohhhhh these are bad bad guys'. For those who have? The part where she was horrifically tortured by a Sontaran makes the instinctive terror and lack of mercy kinda understandable.
- Did I mention it has the motherfucking Brig?
- It has Ten. (This is not so much of interest to me but you know. To others I guess?)
- And now it has Eleven and Jo. Fffffffffffffffffffffffff yes.


Now I want someone to rant with. *sadfaces about*


SJA - 'Death of the Doctor' Spoilers. And boy did they ever get long and rambly. )


So also my headache is not hugely better and I wanted to/still want to do some writing but can't because of restless energy and achey pains, but am going with it so whatever. Also I really wish I had a turntable. I want to play that vinyl of Three singing lullabies that I have now. I want it so hard.

Perhaps some Three, and then sleep.



Also I have been very shoddy at answering comments lately (read: always.) I will try to get on that (read: most likely will fail.)

So. Con is over and was fabulous. I am halfway through writing up an account from scattered notes and footage taken from over the weekend, but essentially, it was fabulous. And terrifying. And fabulous.

I spent travelling time during the weekend re/listening to Gallifrey Season One, which I'd slept through parts of before, and it was love. Which admittedly was more of a confirmation than a revelation, but still. And then when I got home I watched Invasion of Time. Which was silly and rather sadmaking, in that context. And a lot of fun, still. It's one of the serials I have the most vivid imagery-rememberance of from my childhood, so the weird doubling and prediction/adaptation process of rewatching it did take away a little from what otherwise might have been quite emotional. Which is probably good because I'm only just really catching up on sleep. Baaaaaarely. Overinvested? Yes. Yes I am.

Internet is still sort of buggered, which is frustrating, but we're working on it. Showed stepmother Partners In Crime today (yay Donna!) and watched a lot of fascinating exerpts from the Festival of Dangerous Ideas. Exciting stuff. And now, I think, I sleep. Or something.
alexwearspants: (Et tu)
Hello Internet! How are you? I am well. On the creative front things have been fairly stop-start. I managed to get fic finished, which is now doing the rounds in beta hell and has no title. Long-fic is going nowhere, which is sadfaced, and I have three videos in the works. Cheetah is viable but increasingly problematic, Shalka is grit-your-teeth-and-work-through-it-you're-never-going-find-any-more-animation-than-this and Three is ... at the unfortunate stage of both being the easiest to complete and the one that needs the complete overhaul. So I'll probably poke at that next.

And I've been sketching, a little, and considering icons, but nothing's really coming of that. So we'll see how it all goes.


Also, I'm afraid I have a confession to make.

Internet, I do not like Cumberpatch!Master very much. Actually, it would be fair to say I loathe Cumberpatch!Master. It has gotten to the point that when I see Cumberpatch!Master mentioned I want to scream and possibly do something violent to the person espousing his virtues. There are instances where this is not fair. Actually, in every instance this is not fair, because violence is not cool. But there are cases where people are just musing (which is awesome) and cases where people are doing more (which makes my blood boil.) And I have now seen enough of the latter that my hatred spills over into the former, so Internet I have written a very long post about why this is so. It is very long, and filled with bits of anger and at times it may not be clear! But if you want to read it, it is there. And now I will go maybe eat something nice and try to be cool. Or perhaps I will watch Bones? I do like Bones a lot.

Wow that was a lot of words. Now if only I could do that much on my fic.

Carlo, the Time Lords want their hat back. )


The only problem now is I still don't want to go shopping because I want to TALK to someone about awesome Who! Damnit! Also it's super cold outside and I am snug in mah dressing gown... Hmmmmn. But then today for food I had mayonnaise on toast. I think I need to reconsider my life choices...

Ok I saw it? And I liked it! Mostly. Bits of geek rage here and there but I liked it! And I can't be bothered writing up a review because.... I'm lazy. So here instead is my enormous and boring chatlog of watching along. Very little pieces here and there are cut for relevance and it's very spelling fail and grammar fail and interest fail but eh. Oh, and yes. It did in fact take me two hours to watch it, because I kept pausing whenever I got scared. I'M A WUSS OK SHUSH.


OK I'M SORRY RIVER SONG BUT WE CAN NEVER BE FRIENDS NOW )

*bites nails* We're about to watch Victory of the Daleks. I'm really .... I'm really worried you guys. If they can pull this off to and get me to like it? A Dalek story? Then I know this series is something special.

If they don't.... well. It's just a Dalek story, I guess. *shrugs and tries to appear With It*



..... God don't let me down Eleven.
