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.Thank-you!
Seriously, BBC America, how are you not funding this to run on the channel?
25 Welsh Sayings To Live By -
To judge by popular culture alone—Gavin & Stacey, I am looking at you—the Welsh are presented as a largely cheery nation, fond of the rugby and the ale, with a few linguistic peculiarities that are all charm and whimsy, like “Whose boots are those shoes?” “Now in a minute” and “What are you up to now then later?”
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.
The Disney Movie Club is advertising these two box sets are on sale.
I recognized a slight thematic link between them.
For the next few weeks you will see very little of me.
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…
New Who Review - "Flatline" -
LET’S GET SMALL– The TARDIS has had issues with shrinkage before. The Hartnell storyPlanet of Giantswas sparked by the TARDIS materializing at the wrong size, resulting in both the ship and its inhabitants ending up the wrong size. A small error in calculation resulted in the TARDIS being reduced to 50% in size in Logopolis. The Doctor flipped the script on the idea when fighting The Monk inThe Time Meddler– he removed the dimensional control from The Monk’s ship, so while the outside of the ship remained the same, the interior reduced in size, so The Monk couldn’t enter it.
