Excuse the crappy graphic if you will.

But the Doctor Puppet and his crew need your help! They very much need donations to help make their christmas special happen. Not only that, the money raised will also go towards the hiring of live musicians, their time and cover the cost of supplies. 

Here’s a little information about doctorpuppet:

Doctor Puppet is a stop motion animated fan series that celebrates Doctor Who and its rich history through hand-crafted puppets and original stories. The series has been praised on countless websites and podcasts (see a list here,) and even seen on TV and in magazines… but it’s never had proper funding.

We are a small group of professional artists and musicians who have largely spent our free time making Doctor Puppet. Stop motion is a meticulous technique that requires nearly every aspect to be made from scratch. A huge amount of time and care goes into everything you see and hear. 

If we unfortunately fall short of our goal, we’ll scale back production and use what we have to make something shorter or simpler.  (their goal is 15,000)

If we surpass our goal and reach $17,500, we’ll use the extra money to upgrade some well-used equipment. Any money after this will be saved for future episodes.

Also there’s this: 

Earth Conquest” will be on the Series 8 DVD! It features an interview with Alisa, clips from Doctor Puppet with animation by Rachel and music by Scott, and an exclusive Doctor Puppet animation by Erin with the real voices of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman! 
So if that’s not enough reason to support these guys then idk what is. Seriously, you won’t regret watching it or helping them.

Seriously, BBC America, how are you not funding this to run on the channel?



25 Welsh Sayings To Live By

The (not yet at the time) Wife and I went to Britain for Worldcon one year, and made a tour of much of the country, starting in London, traveling up to Wales, staying over in Portmerion (AKA The Village) for my Birthday, and then down to Brighton.  All by train, natch.

I can’t tell you how pleasant and happy the folks in Wales were.  We arrived late in the evening, and most of the town was assembled in the pub.  When they heard we needed a ride up to Pertmerion, they all called over to the cab driver, who even found us a Chinese takeaway before we drove up to the resort.

We stayed in a bed and breakfast the next day, and when the proprietor heard we were taking the train down to Brighton, said “Oh, don’t by the food on the train, it’s rubbish, hang on”, went out to the kitchen and came back with approximately eighteen inches of ham sandwiches; wouldn’t take a penny for them.

Lovely folks.

Blogtor Who: BBC to launch "The Doctor and the Dalek" game

A range of puzzles are featured throughout the game, where players must take control of the Dalek and program it to “power up” its ability to perform a range of tasks, such as flying.

That sounds tantalizingly similar to a magnificent game for the Apple II called Robot Odyssey, where you had to program little robots to perform tasks like navigating through a maze.

Claws of Axos is a great adventure, partly because it’s the one where Roger Delgado’s performance as The Master kicked into high gear. 

The scene where he walks into the nuclear plant after agreeing to a truce with the forces of good is stellar.  When asked what they should do if all else fails…

Anonymous said: 1. You're white, I see a ton of obviously poor blacks on Instagram trying to impress each other with luxury goods for the mass affluent (louis Vuitton etc) 2. Go to a thrift store- you can get a decent pair of shoes for like $15 right? Yes mine are $1200 loafers but that's not the point. If you have to save up $15 you're doing it wrong- this is America not Africa 3. Stop whining about everything and learn programming- make yourself a viable part of the new global economy




Alright I’m going to ignore your nonsensical first comment and say you realize that buying 15 dollar shoes at a thrift store just means you’re going to be buying another set in a couple of months?  That they’re already partially worn out so you’re just going to deal with the same problem again?

And IT still has problems, dude.

But hey you don’t care, you probably don’t even know programming yourself, you just have a list of things in order to justify the fact that poor people exist.

Mod r

"The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”

- Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms


Also, the fact that there exist pairs of loafers that sell for $1200 is patently ridiculous. One item of clothing should not cost an average working person’s monthly salary.

One of the things that’s awesome and unfathomable about America is you can pay as little, or as much for anything you want.  You can pay ten dollars for shoes, or you can pay three thousand.  And while there’s certainly some increase in quality and durability as cost goes up, there’s a point past which you’re almost always paying just for a name or a design.

Similarly, there’s a level of wealth where you find yourself less interested in amassing more things than you are in buying outrageously expensive versions of things.  You buy yourself a nice car, then you start collecting cars, then you’r in an auction paying an unconscionable amount of money for a three-wheeled Madison.
