Nater’s Favorite Doctor Who Episodes
I figure since I’m rewatching all 7 of the latest Doctor Who Series, I’m gonna highlight my favorite episodes.
I’ve made it to one of my favorite episode archs, The Empty Child + The Doctor Dances. This arch has everything. The first appearance of Captain Jack, and all of his sassiness, the Doctor getting scared shitless, an absolutely terrifying and Brilliant monster in the Empty Child (and others), a cliffhanger, and more. You see this war hardened Doctor soften a bit, you see the real person that he is, the real ‘coward’ underneath the stone facade. Also it features a ton of wonderful lines such as this one ‘I want to find a blonde in a Union Jack. A specific one, I didn’t just wake up this morning with a craving.’ It’ll make you laugh, it’ll keep you in suspense, at one point you’ll cry (if you don’t you’re a monster because this episode messes with the heart strings)…
In the words of 9, it’s FANTASTIC.
Alright, Alright, Alright
During his trip to the Fire House today, TinyTot got a bunch of awesome things like a sticker, pencil and ruler that change color when heat comes in contact with them, fire themed silly bands, and a couple of potholders with balloons attached to them (balloons and 2nd potholder not shown). I love that the potholders have safety tips on them.
This morning driving to work was like traveling through a cloud.
For my Father’s Birthday this year I decided to make him a custom Buffalo Bills Fire Helmet. When I gave it to him, he fell in love immediately. Sadly it was missing some pieces when I made it , the leather and hardwear for the leather, so I had the items shipped to my Father’s house. They arrived this past week. The only thing missing is a couple of screws to hold the leather on the helmet. I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Tinkering the Strokin’ The Beard tee… This one has a nice Retro Feel. I love it.
I had to model the Think Geek Chewbacca Messenger Bag. I must say, this bag is awesome. There is a magnet in it for an ensured close. There are long straps that go under the bag. It’s wide enough to fit an 11” computer, tablet or whatever else you wish. I am in love with this bag.
I’ma go put on a collared shirt ‘cuz were here to tackle the big picture.
You know those awesome tees I always talk about and that can be see in pictures of me? Seibei tees?

If you don’t have a Seibei in your closet, you need to check out this awesome link here.
‘Death of Yoda’ - Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
This song makes me sad every time I hear it. Whenever something is going wrong in my life I think of Luke’s return trip to Dagobah. The sad time when he loses Yoda and has the heart to heart with Obi-Wan’s ghost. You learn a great deal from this scene. It’s one of the mellower scenes in the movie. I always loved the scenes on Dagobah. I wish the scenes were longer. Yoda is one of my favorite characters. His death always brings sadness to my heart, every time.
‘Han Solo & The Princess’ - Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
I could go on forever about how much I love the theme to Han and Leia’s romance, but I’m tired and really don’t feel like getting into it. Lets just say this piece is the bees knees.
'Princess Leia's Theme' -Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
Let me just take a moment and tell you how awesome this piece of music is. Ever since I heard it for the first time it has been one of my favorite compositions from the first movie. It ranks up there with ‘The Hologram/Binary Sunset’, ‘Cantina Band’ & ‘Tales of a Jedi Knight/Learn About the Force (Medley)’. One distinct memory I can remember is borrowing my best friends copy of Star Wars (the video game) for the Game Boy and falling asleep on my bedroom floor with the game on just to hear that song as it was the one they played during the menu. It’s sweet and has a beautiful melody. I cannot say enough of how wonderful this piece is. I am extremely glad I was fortunate to hear it during Star Wars in Concert a few years back.
