01:31 pm - Hey, Dromiceiomimus! Are You Still Punching Children?
I feel the coast. The coast to post!

That...didn't make any sense. But! Here is an assortment of post-worthy items.

William Hartnell. They should make a movie about Duncan, Lilly, Jake, and Celeste flying across the country. And you know what they could call it?

KANES ON A PLANE.

Patrick Troughton. I am still sad that they never used "Blame It on the Kane" as an episode title.

Jon Pertwee. veejane has put together a wonderfully hilarious list of things to do when you can't win an argument. Anyone who has ever participated in or witnessed any sort of kerfuffle must read this. hobviously and peri_peteia in particular will die laughing. An excerpt:
7. Post hoc ergo propter hoc. (Literally, "this happened after, so the thing that happened before caused it.") Scientists call this one correlation is not causation, because it's so easy to insinuate a causal connection where there isn't one. "I ask for proof, and then she stops posting. Hmmm, she must not have any proof!" Carefully disregard possible other causes, like the fact it is two in the morning and you asked for proof in Latvian.

Tom Baker. There's a party on my right wrist, and none of you are invited.

Peter Davison. If you have not seen the Veronica Mars promo that was shown at Comic-Con, watch it now and remember why you love the show. If you do not love the show, see why you should.

Colin Baker. Also, if you have not seen OK Go dancing on treadmills, you really must see it for yourself. And then grab some friends, go buy some treadmills, and hurt yourselves.

Sylvester McCoy. Today's Life Lesson is: sometimes there is harm in asking.

Paul McGann. On several occasions, I have been told, here at work, that people have frequently heard my name being used in a favorable manner. This freaks me out, as I cannot possibly be good enough to be worth being talked about.

Christopher Eccleston. Happy birthday, wee_warrior!

David Tennant. You know what's good? Guacamole.

Hee! I thought you'd like it. I feel like a big poser, though, since I haven't seen any of the old Doctors. I only know back to Eight, of all people.

OK Go have the best dances EVER. How no one broke something in the treadmill dance, I don't know, but it looks really cool. My favorite part is where it looks like they're figure skating across the treadmills.

Yes, that part is awesome!

I just read that they did about fifteen takes, and they ended up using #14. And they only made it all the way through twice. No one broke anything, but they got bruises and pain and shit.

Dear Mr Sunil;

Bravo. Your geekery brings a warming feeling to the cockle region of my heart (I believe the cockle region is located somewhere within the actual aorta), and thusly, I grin.

Well done, once again, good sir.

Every time I see a fire, I see fire trucks. OMG fire trucks cause fires!

I don't understand half of what you are talking about (which isn't that unusual), but I can respond to the tiny part I do understand:

OMG!!! That promo is so awesome! If that doesn't inspire people to watch this frakking show, I don't know what will. ;p

Also . . . I hear something about a BSG recap show? Is this going to make the show finally make sense to me? It can't possibly cover everything that happened in 2 seasons, can it?

IS THAT A DINOSAURS COMIC REFERENCE?
finally, something I understand.
Actually, two things I understand! I'm glad someone else is as easily amused with treadmills as I am.

If you have not seen the Veronica Mars promo that was shown at Comic-Con, watch it now and remember why you love the show. If you do not love the show, see why you should.


I watched the promo, and as well as filling me with good feelings about VM, it also made me really want to change my journal title from "Angst Addict" to "Nobody Likes a Blond in a Hampster Wheel." Of course, then I'd have go make myself a default icon saying "got a blond in a hampster wheel?" And that just doesn't have the same ring.

Hee. I missed that on the original airing, but seeing it in the promo made me realize why it was a popular line. Kristen, as usual, makes it hilarious.

That VM promo gave me the shiveries. And that was on a computer with crappy video and sound cards. I can't imagine how anyone could watch that without them HAVING to watch the show. The music makes it feel all... James Bond actiony, but in a good way. Our l'il show is all grown up. *sniff*
