harder, harder, hardest; i am the artist

[banner by schattenmond ]

I realized recently that while I don't post very much these days, almost every post I make is friends-locked. So, I decided to do what a lot of people I know on LJ do: add a friends-only banner.

I am pretty liberal about 'friending' and generally 'friend' just about everyone back who wants to be on my friends-list [well, aside from Russian phishing journals, natch]. So, feel free to comment here if you'd like to be added or, if you'd like, just go ahead and add me. I don't bite.

I welcome new LJ friends. :)

OMG! After six months, I finally made a new episode!

+ + + +



So, after about six months of unintended hiatus (!), the ninth episode of 'Terminus' is now finally finished and available for you! So, life sort of got on top of me during that time, derailing me completely and utterly, but I'm back to give things another go with a belated review of the 50th anniversary story, 'The Day of the Doctor' (I've postponed the promised 'Silver Nemesis' review episode for later, since I'm shuffling my schedule around a bit to accommodate the hiatus).

Anyway, many apologies for the wait and many thank-yous to those who've been listening all this time and cheering me on to return to my podcast again. Hopefully, things will balance out soon again on this end and I can bring you more content, more frequently.

Anyway, as I said above, join me on this episode as I chat about 'The Day of the Doctor' and even get a bit saucy and naughty at times, but that's what recording at 3:00 AM will do for you. I hope no one minds too much, but I thought I'd give a warning, nonetheless.

And, as always, glad to have you aboard. Enjoy the ride!

[cross-posted from my Facebook]

I took the time to write this up for Facebook, so I thought I'd post it here as well. I was going to spread it out day by day, as is How The Meme Works, but instead I'm just going to finish this out in one go, as I'm rubbish at these things otherwise. Yeah.

Some answers will have both classic and new series answers, not that I don't think of them as the same show, but just because it'll make it easier to chose (plus, it'll help new series fans on my flist who don't know the classic series very well).

My mind is always changing about this stuff, too. So, an hour from now I might have different answers, but oh well.

Onwards!

My Doctor Who favorites...as of today...Collapse )

Oops! I've been so busy the last few days, I forgot to post this!

+ + +



So, after a month of waiting, the eighth episode of 'Terminus' is now finally finished and available for you! Many, many apologies, of course, but now that I'm finally past all the travel and the consequent illness (the derby tournament equivalent of con crud, methinks), I'm hoping I can start to get things back on track (I've had to juggle my schedule a bit though, so I'll be doing more anniversary episodes after the 50th!). Anyway, I'm hoping just after I post this to record the next episode about 'The Silver Nemesis', though it might be out after the 50th special at this rate (which I will also be doing an episode on, of course -- don't worry!). Oh, and being as I recorded this a month ago, some of the news-y, 'Happy Fandom Time' stuff is a bit dated, so sorry about that! *embarrassed*

Anyway, join me on this episode as I chat about 'The Five Doctors'. Also I chat about the new Second Doctor episodes found (yes, this episode was recorded that long ago!), the 'Day of the Doctor' teaser trailer, some local 'Day of the Doctor' celebratory stuff, and other things making me happy in fandom right now. Oh, and apparently every time I refer to the Big Finish audio 'An Earthly Child' in this episode, I sound like I'm saying 'Unearthly Child', which is a bit funny. Oops! Sorry about that! I hope I don't confuse you too-too much!

So, anyway, as always, glad to have you aboard and enjoy the ride!

After fighting with some technical issues and going on travels around the Southeastern US, I'm finally back with the newest episode of Terminus! On this seventh episode of Terminus, join me as I chat about the serial 'The Three Doctors', unofficially the celebratory story for the 10th anniversary of 'Doctor Who'. I also chat about things like the new minisodes released with the Series 7 boxset, various trailers that have me excited, some 'Day of the Doctor' miscellany, etc. Also, some exciting news is that this is the first episode under the umbrella of the Earth Station One Network, which my podcast is now a proud member of! Hooray! Oh, and as my schedule begins to open up, I'm finally starting to get things back on a schedule, but until then, be sure to subscribe to the podcast either on iTunes, Stitcher, or just the RSS feed to keep up with the newest episodes as they're released. And, as always, enjoy the ride!

Hoorah! Yes, the newest episode is finally here! So, on this sixth episode of the Terminus podcast (released during the two days I'm actually at home and not traveling during these two weeks!), join me as I chat about some of the more *obscure* Doctor Who spin-offs (and try and not stumble over saying 'BBV' many, many times). This time around I'm focusing on 'P.R.O.B.E.', 'The Stranger', 'The Airzone Solution', and 'Downtime', but never fear, there are more episodes on spin-offs planned for the future! *crickets* Yeah, not sure this episode has much of a target audience! Anyway, I also talk about geeking out with Andrew Cartmel on Twitter, Target books, and 50th Anniversary miscellany (specifically some bits about the BFI screenings and the Master's new anniversary-edition fob watch). Oh, and I'm *almost* back on schedule with scheduled release dates (squeezing in recording and editing between all my recent travel has proved an interesting challenge), so that is made of awesome! Until then, be sure to subscribe to the podcast either on iTunes, Stitcher, or just the RSS feed to keep up with the newest episodes as they're released. And, as always, enjoy the ride!

harder, harder, hardest; i am the artist


On this also-a-bit-late fifth episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about how I define queer for myself, the Eighth Doctor television movie, thoughts about what we currently know about the Last Great Time War (possibly soon to be Jossed by the upcoming 50th anniversary special!), and the Atlanta-based fan series 'The Forgotten Doctor'. Also I squee (yes, I said squee) about things like Peter Capaldi (likely?) keeping his Scottish accent for his role as the Doctor, Doctor Puppet, the TARDIS on Google Maps, and the Doctor as Mr. Potato Head. Oh, and I thought the last episode was super-long, but this one takes the cake -- wow! I thought about editing it down a bit, but I decided to leave in everything, even if it gets a bit rambly, silly (did I really say 'WTF?' more than once? The things we do to keep it family-friendly), and littered with unfortunate poppy plosives at times. This should hopefully be the last of the late episodes (at least for a while) as I'm getting things back on schedule now. Anyway, enjoy the ride!

harder, harder, hardest; i am the artist
(Oops, I've been so busy, I hadn't had a chance to post this yet.)



On this super-duper-late fourth episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the recent reveal of who will be the next Doctor (on which there's lots of geeking and cheering from me, of course!) and how one of my favorite classic Doctors is coming to a convention near me next year (and I'll hopefully get to meet him for the first time!). Of course, as promised, there's also the main 'In Defense Of' segments, where I come to the defense of several characters and other bits of fandom I think are often ridiculed unfairly. Admittedly, I sadly didn't have the nicest things to say about Rose Tyler a few times in the episode and while I know she's a bit of a sacred cow in fandom, I feel that many of the characters I talked about were often sacrificed at her altar and put up against her in comparison by the show. So, I argue how those comparisons failed for me. I'm honestly hoping I don't lose any listeners over that, because I know YMMV and everyone gets something different out of different characters, but at the same time, I had to be honest with my opinions. Anyway, this is the longest episode I've done so far, which probably made the timing of it even worse as its running so late due to Life Stuff (I sincerely hope to be back on schedule going forward though). So, anyway, enjoy the ride -- its a bumpy one this month!

harder, harder, hardest; i am the artist
Oops! I was so sleepy when I put this up, I forgot to cross-post it here. New episode! Hope you guys enjoy it!



On the third episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the Seventh Doctor. I ramble on about my feelings regarding his character and story arc, as well as thoughts on his companions, my favorite serials of his, and, of course, the Cartmel Masterplan! Plus, there’s a longer than usual Happy-Fandom-Time-cum-News segment (because there’s just far too much to be excited about in fandom these days)! Also, this is a bit of an ‘under the weather episode’, with me wincing from fighting a back injury (from fighting aliens, of course! Okay…maybe not), as well as donning a rather husky, gravelly voice due to a very sore throat (most of the coughs were edited out, but you’ll get treated to the occasional wheeze! FUN TIMES!). So, enjoy the ride!

harder, harder, hardest; i am the artist
23 July 2013 @ 08:25 pm
I was typing this up for a friend who hadn't heard of the whole 50th Anniversary 'trailergate' thing, but I decided to put it here too to get it off my chest. I can't stop rolling my eyes at fandom over this.

I mean, seriously.

So, at the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary panel at ComicCon this past weekend, they showed the first 50th Anniversary Trailer. Now, right before showing it, Steven Moffat said that if they catch any leaks of it online afterward, they would stop having Doctor Who exclusives at ComicCon (apparently something similar was said at the Sherlock panel earlier in the con, but the audio had leaked within 20 minutes and so they were a bit more intense about it at this panel -- yes, he sounded slightly naggy, but he had to get the point across).

Now, as a result, tons and tons of people are pissed off at him, calling him a Nazi and tyrant and the like. Of course, I doubt it was up to him anyway. He was probably being ordered by the BBC to say what he did (because you know how tight-arsed the BBC can be about images, video, etc). But of course all the MOFFAT IS EVIL!! people have jumped on the bandwagon touting this as 'yet another reason he should be fired from Doctor Who'. Oh, and there are a bunch of entitlement brats going on about a) if it was at a con, we should be able to see it, dammit!! and/or b) that they're British and the show is British, so Americans shouldn't have the monopoly on the trailer.

In short, people are freaking the fuck out. OVER A TRAILER. That will probably be out to the public in the near future and not an ugly, shakey-cam version. I find it all a bit ridiculous honestly. Especially all the people mad at Moffat, because as I said, I sincerely doubt he really has anything to do with it (the man does not have that much power, people -- he's just another cog in the BBC machine!).

Oh, fandom.

So, there you go. Trailergate in all its 'glory'!
