I saw The Hobbit! My brief summary goes something like:
Martin Freeman is Bilbo. The "Good morning!" scene, the dwarven dinner, and then when they busted out with "That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!" a part of my childhood came to life, and it was marvelous. Right now I'm not up for posting a proper review. But it is coming, oh yes, it is.
I also read this awesome bit about the 11th Doctor as asexual. I left a comment full of squee (currently in moderation, but I'm not an ass so I think it'll get approved), because YES. Even though he does kiss, like, everyone. A lot of people. ALL THE PONDS. Etc.
Also, the "Good" Men Project totally jumped the shark what with a really god-awful series of rape-culture-supporting posts. Jill at Feministe took it down in two goodposts, and Thomas over at Yes Means Yes meticulously detailed the reasoning-fails by the anti-Yes-Means-Yes-model folks. As a palate-cleanser, you may enjoy this anti-rape-culture advice from Captain Awkward, to someone who is trying to pull the same faux-plausible-deniability BS as the "Good" Men Project folks.
Wow, I am full of hyphenation tonight!
Aaaaand I'm also up too late. Again. Time to do something about that. G'night all!
Figure out the stats, graph it a million ways to see which is the best at showing it, make a poster, present it at a conference, make a powerpoint, present it in our meetings, collect additional data, process it, update all results/discussion, make a final powerpoint, present that at our lab meeting, revise that powerpoint, finish the thesis writeup including formatting, present both to my committee, and present it in front of the department. Take feedback, refine interpretation, write paper, publish paper.
I wrote that three months ago. I got all that done! In three months!
This season's perspective has been from the Ponds' timeline, more or less. As I mentioned in previous reviews, I really don't think that the Doctor's timeline is concurrent; I think that the Doctor's timeline jumps around a bit. I'm going to lay out my hypothesized timeline, and comprehensively explain why I think that. This also doubles as my Season 7 review roundup, as I'll link to my review in the episode title.
