“people assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect”
I ought to find a clip of Hartnell or Troughton expressing similar sentiments.
and if a double decker bus…
Aww, Smiths and Cure references in one. By AFP. Awesome.
I don’t usually reblog DOCTOR’S WIFE Fan art, but this is too good not to, with its beautiful Idris and baffled William Hartnell First Doctor…
Yay! So nice to see a reference to the First Doctor. Makes me feel like watching the very first episode. And then maybe something with Daleks that couldn’t leave the floor…
In which Amanda Palmer introduces us to the littlest Dalek…
I love this. If it was a knit Dalek, it would be perfect. Love how she calls the eye stalk a nose.
The best part is that despite over a minute of staring at a cutesy-wutsey Dalek, I’m still frightened by them.
The Venn Diagram. It embiggens.

Also, I can’t see or hear of a trampoline without thinking of Homer Simpson: tramampoline! trombopoline!
Last night Amanda showed me an article from the L A Weekly blog taking her to task for her recent topless protest, and claiming that should Amanda get her ill-conceived demands, not only will all journalists and musicians and filmmakers be out on the street, penniless, but the porn industry will also be destroyed.

“Perhaps you were trying to say more ‘Free Digital Content (and tits)’ in the spirit of ‘Free Nelson Mandela’…?” I said. “Demanding that they be liberated.”
“I don’t know,” she said. “They just asked me to take my top off, and write something protesty on a placard.”
“Ah,” I said. “The old please-protest-generally problem. There is a solution…”
And I showed her this video. Because she had never seen it. And now you can too. And you will know how to protest generally, without endangering the porn industry.
Neil Gaiman references Father Ted. Your argument is invalid.

Does he look like one of my characters? He looks like *someone* - I just have to figure out who.
Thirty five years ago a Nottingham magistrate “reluctantly” ruled that the word Bollocks was neither obscene nor indecent. Which is good to know on the sort of a rumpled Monday morning when you feel like wearing a T-shirt with “Bollocks” on it.
Or, as Fry and Laurie would say - Sloblock.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the queen of mystery Agatha Christie! While most people know her as an older woman who wrote tons of amazing detective novels, she was quite attractive when she was young. Always thought that her character “Tuppence” would sort of look like this
