Feeling fresh as fuck and all I want is a stack of tacos, a pizza, and a gorgeous naked body in front of me. Oh and some good music…
that today isn’t Friday. Long weekends always screw me up. Don’t get me wrong here, I love long weekends, however I just keep thinking it’s 2 days later than it actually is…
- It’s my ‘Friday’ (also known as the last day one works in the week) since we aren’t open the next two days. This pleases me as it gives me extra time to spend with TinyTot doing fun things, like decorating for Christmas.
- My boss walked by my desk, stopped, turned and began intently staring at me. I was busy writing down something, to which I leaned in really close to do. So close I was hovering over my cereal bowl. I asked my boss why he was staring at me, as he normally stops and then attempts to touch my beard because he’s amazed by its beauty and awesomeness and he has a slight jealousy that he cannot grow a luscious beard. He quipped that I was ‘pretty’ and I looked like I was breathing into my cereal bowl. I was really intently writing.
- I do that from time to time when I’m really into something. I either get really close or I concentrate so much that I stick my tongue out a bit. There was a kid in 6th grade science class I sat next to that would always make fun of me about this…
- I really should play RPGs more often. I brought my new D20 with me today because I like to keep a D12 or D20 in my pocket incase I have any super hard decisions that need to be left up to the die… I started rolling for no good reason other than to see what I’d get; my rolls this morning so far have been 11, 13, 16, 14, 11, 13.
- I have been mired in a creative slump lately so I decided since it was my midweek Friday, I’d get fresh as fuck before work. Definitely the best idea I could’ve had lately. Time is seeming to fly by and it’s wonderful. Also I found my creative groove again.
Can you tell my son watches British Television?
(We don’t have red, double-decker buses where we live, nor can I think of any time he has been near one)
Oh and he got every word correct except Wheel which is a pretty complex word for a 5 year old, considering he spelled it as it sounded when he said it.
Tonight I purchased #TinyTot a 6.5” #TARDIS to go with our ever expanding collection of #BlindBox #Vinyl figures. I also got him a 50th Anniversary limited edition blindbox Doctor, he got the 3rd #Doctor. It made his night to get both and then see the #DayoftheDoctor special in 3D. #DoctorWho #DoctorWho50th
After little deliberation, I decided that the TinyWhovian and I would travel to a theater an hour away tonight to see The Day of the Doctor in 3D. I keep seeing images for it and I want to relive the magic one last time…
Plus he loves Doctor Who so much and didn’t get to see the wonderful episode for himself, so it would be almost selfish to not take him.
It’s the way it makes you feel. The way the music enraptures your soul and makes you lose time, as you become wrapped in the story being told with notes and verses. It’s the way you get goosebumps when it gets to the one measure that you absolutely love. It’s the way it can take your breath away and the next moment give you the most powerful voice. It’s the way it can trigger emotions and thoughts deep in your soul, the ones that you have repressed and haven’t thought of in forever. It’s the way it makes you want to both sing every word but be quiet at the same time so you can take it all in, unabated and uninterrupted. I truly feel that music is one of the most magical and powerful things on earth; it truly is.
Tonight we, Ms.Katie and I, found out that her parents were getting us tickets to see the play Once the Musical on Broadway. While in the City yesterday we walked past the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre; being a fan of the Movie, Ms.Katie stopped to see who all was cast to play the parts. Once she found out the ever so wonderful Arthur Darvill was playing the lead role, she immediately fangirled out and had to get tickets. Upon returning home, I learned that Mr.Darvill’s final performance would be the 15th of December so we’d better get tickets quickly. I mentioned how I would get her tickets for Christmas, however it would have to wait a week or so because we just had gotten done with a trip and I had to pay bills. She phoned shortly after to tell me that her parents had gotten us tickets.
I absolutely loved the film and am a huge fan of Arthur Darvill, he is an amazing actor. I can honestly say I am really excited for this and we get to see one of his final shows as we are going to the December 14th show… Happy early Christmas to us.
Finally watching ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’.
So excellent to get a glimpse at how it all began, even if it is a biopic 50 years after the show began. Mark Gatiss is a genius.
I have seen a lot of these posts that contain an image of a twitter post that says something to the tune of ‘Doctor Who gives a fuck’… That’s not cool man. Don’t shit all over someone else’s fandom.
You may not like Doctor Who, that’s fine. Get tumblr savior and unfollow the common Doctor Who tags. This is tumblr where there are a ton of fandoms. Doctor Who being around for 50 years is a BIG deal to some people, learn to respect this.
I find this kind of disrespect really unnerving and have been unfollowing anyone who reblogged the post in question. I’m sorry if this offends you but you are being incredibly rude. Yeah you may not like Doctor Who but that post is really unnecessary.
I meant to post this yesterday, but my phone died…
That was the most incredible episode I have ever seen. Such a fitting episode. I cannot lie, I was in tears a lot. Happy, sad. Overwhelmed. Just amazing. So much to love. I would give more thoughts but they cannot do justice to my actual feelings…
Honestly, had I the money and a babysitter, I’d contemplate seeing it again as there is a screening tomorrow less than an hour away from me. Seeing it in theaters, with a ton of other Whovians was excellent. So many people munching on Jammy Dodgers and Jelly Babies. Tons of applause and cheering at moments when the fan favorites made appearances. When Tom Baker came on screen, the theater erupted. No one knew he was going to be in it so there was a collective gasp and applause and cheers. I lost it at the beginning when the girl had his scarf. I was like, NO WAY… it gave answers to so many things and gave insight into back story that always had me wondering… What made me irritated were the fact that I actually heard people say it was ‘okay’. There were people who did not like it. I was walking out of the theater scratching my head at the fact that someone came away from that emotional roller coaster and didn’t like it. Honestly, how could one not like that?! It was better than expected. Truly was. And it told us the upcoming direction of the show… I just can’t say enough about it. It was fitting. And we got to see the regeneration that gave us 9 as well. Which was great.
If you can, I recommend a 3D showing. Honestly I do. I don’t know if they’ll include the cinema specific ‘extras on the DVD/Bluray release’… Before there was a really neat featurette featuring Strax explaining movie etiquette, showing what happens to people who are rude (it was various forms of torture), as well as why he loves popcorn. Followed by a featurette with extremely fun playful banter between 10 and 11 explaining 3D, which 10 quips watch out with the 3D you know ‘because of the chin’. After the showing there was a really neat behind the scenes featurette which was voiced over by Colin Baker, which was fantastic because it ended with him saying it was voiced over by none other than the 6th doctor himself and there was a cut away to him in the studio recording the voice over. It was wonderful. Everyone cheered for that… It was a wonderful time and I can’t say enough about it.
The fans, oh bless the fans. The theater filled up rather early so by the time this one elderly couple arrived closer to 2:30, the only seats left were the ones in the way front where you’d have to stare upward. The lady took command of the room and everyone immediately got quiet. She had a simple request, she was going to trade someone a box of Jelly Babies if they would allow her husband, who had ailing eyes due to his age, to sit in one of the seats they had reserved with a coat but no one was really sitting in. The fans immediately helped out multiple people raised their hands and said he can sit here, he can sit here. Eventually it a gentleman my age gave up his seat, willingly no jelly babies required and sat down in front so the man could have a decent seat. It was wonderful to see fans coming together like that… there were people of all ages, from elementary school age children to the elderly… just wonderful.
One of my favorite moments was afterward when we left the theater and were walking toward Times Square in NYC. All bundled up in jackets and hats, myself wearing the 4th Doctor’s scarf, we were approached by one of the random people promoting some comedy event. He was trying to do his job and pitch us something but noticed my scarf and quickly shifted gears into fanboy-mode and immediately asked about the special since he was unable to watch. All I could say was it was excellent and my favorite River Song quote ‘Spoilers’… it was great.
I wish I could recap all of my favorite moments, like the use of the original opening from the 1st Doctor, or the location used for the opening and the fact that it was the same location from the first ever episode just 50 years later, or the Tom Baker cameo, or the scarf, or the great playful arguing and banter between 10 and 11, or the fact that you got so many answers like how Gallifrey got time locked or how the Doctor destroyed everyone during the last day of the time war…
It was just a fantastic episode and I cannot say enough. I am still beaming because it was that excellent.
Happy 50th Doctor Who, happy 50th indeed.
