petition for a doctor who episode where the doctor travels back in time to meet arthur conan doyle and accidentally happens to mention how popular sherlock holmes is even 130 years later and poor acd almost breaks down crying
"Doctor before you leave…just tell me one thing."
"My books, the Sherlock Holmes books…do they die out?"
"No, Arthur. People love them. They carry on for hundreds of years."
"Dammit. God dammit. Fuck."
Oh, man, oh, man. This cover. May be my favorite of Leila’s so far. I’m a sucker for inset character portraits. Plus more Alarm Cat.

Kate Kristopher has left the life she built to confront the life she left behind—and here there be monsters.
Seriously followers. Shutter is about a female POC archeologist living in a urban fantasy universe with great writing and art. How are you not all over this?
NAW Y’ALL. Think about this for a second. Computers were really still just building up steam in the 80s. My Father learned math on a slide rule and fed instructions to computers bigger than a Xerox machine by creating patterns on punch cards. When I was a kid, desktop computers were only just starting to become a household item, it took 20+ 3.5” floppies to install anything, you could almost bury yourself in Free 100 hours of AOL discs by the time I hit high school, and I got to do math on a calculator that could draw the graph for me.
Now we carry tiny computers in our pockets capable of grabbing information anywhere around the world, talking to people over long distances, instantly sharing anything we see with anyone who has access to the internet, the computers can talk back to us — and it all fits in your pocket and is with you constantly. There’s an entire generation that doesn’t know what it is to not be digitally connected at almost all times. I can hardly imagine my life without the constant digital connection.
I carry my own Jack Kirby Mother Box with me everywhere like some sort of New God from Apokolips or New Genesis. I’m living in a straight up sci-fi fantasy the-future-is-now situation. And things are only progressing with increasing speed, thank you Moore (and your law we’ve actually surpassed a few times with the speed of technological advance).
I’ve gotten to watch so much happen in my lifetime. It’s really amazing.
I think I was a freshman in High School when my family got our first computer. We didn’t have internet service for a year, but used a free e-mail service called Juno. Hell I didn’t have a cell phone till I was in college, and that one was a brick for emergencies only. (Mind you I was a little behind the times in this respect, but we couldn’t budget anything fancier). I had a flip-phone for most of my 20s and only got my first smart phone two years ago, when I finally started making enough at my job to budget having a data plan.
I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins
Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time
Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.
That was beautiful
You are not dreaming.
We are trying to communicate with you.
Local reality has been reinstalled.
Things have gone wrong.
The revision has corrupted.
Finding Ethan Crane is your supreme priority.
We are speaking to you from the ultimate bunker within the structure of multiversal time.
Do not trust Darius Dax.
We are all going to die.
Ooooooooooh I’m glad I’m loosely familiar with Alan Moore’s Supreme run because this sounds gooooooood.
Paul Johnson’s Doctor Who Anime.
(I’d love to do a Third Doctor cosplay group based on this, but I don’t think I would ever ask my lady friends to dress up as his “companion” from Japan)
7) Gemini. I tend to overthink things so I guess you could say I’m “of two minds?”
48) I sleep there. I have over 5000 comics in there. I’ve got two DVD cases I keep manga in. There are four plush cats. It has the only window I get direct sunlight from in my place. I can hear the neighbors when they have sex. I have a walk-in closet that manages to be a bit too small. The floor tends to creak near the entrance. There is currently a pile of neckties in the corner. My netbook that I haven’t touched in a year or so is somewhere in there next to a portable typewriter.
82) Cool and smooth fabric, like bamboo sheets.
156) Not sure if this is the sweetest, just the best that comes to mind. I gave roses to the girls that worked in my department on Valentines Day one year.
200) My fists. “Rider Punch”
237) I play “what-if” scenarios in my head all the time. Usually about whatever task I want to to accomplish at the time that I’m nervous about attempting.
Try this again? There’s A LOT so feel free to pick a decent amount of numbers. Anon is fine too.

Another thing I enjoyed in this week’s ep was this little exchange. We’ve all ready established Wagon is just walking sexual innuendo but after Tokatti accidentally fell on Mio a few episodes back and got an open-palmed slap for his troubles, It was nice seeing him pull a Love Hina pratfall only to have Wagon just be totally cool with it.
Context for my followers: Tokatti has a pressure sensitive bomb attached to him, and the train they’re on is out of control
I’ve been enjoying Tokatti from the start of ToQger, but I really liked how he was handled in the most recent episode. From the moment the bomb gets attached to him, he’s clearly scared, but unlike other stressful situations where he’s had a small panic attack or thrown an exaggerated fit, he recognizes the severity of the situation and remains as calm as he can. The best part, however, is his constant concern for the safety of everyone else. Telling both Wagon and then later Mio and Kagura they should get away from him in case the bomb explodes. That panicked look on his face when they try to keep him safe and he’s only thinking of them.
Tokatti is Japanese Schoolboy Clark Kent and I love him for it.
