This & That

  • I just watched Tron Legacy. HA! That made next to no sense. XD I am glad they got Bruce Boxleitner back for it though.

  • So. The best kind of doughnut: glazed? sugared? powdered? jam? I think maple bars might be my favorite.

  • Dear Matt Smith: Please to be not taking classes from Moffat on what kind of douchey things to say in interviews. These kinds of extracurricular shenanigans drop my enthusiasm for S6. Thanks in advance.

  • Has anyone ever watched Lark Rise to Candleford? Good? Bad? Worth watching?

  • I'm pretty sure I had another point.

  • Maybe not though.

Maple bars are DEFINITELY the best.

Not that I think that the Doctor is the "marrying kind," but intergalactic playboy is not how I'd describe the Doctor in either New or Classic Who. BLECH.

What the hell?
That's not it at all. That's not the Doctor.
What kind of crazy juice is Matt Smith drinking? Well, obviously, the same kind that Moff is.
This very much explains the whole Marilyn Monroe thing from the Christmas special. And that one bit from 'Girl in the Fireplace'.
I am literally shaking my head at this.

I tried to watch Lark Rise and was SO BORED. I think I made it through an episode and a half.

I like Boston cremes best probably. But for timbits, glazed 4eva.

This is the first thing Matt Smith has said that has given me side-eye so he has not depleted my store of good will towards him. But don't do that. Really.

GLAZED!!!!

I can't say that I'd seen anything bad before either, but this is definitely an "ICK."

JAM IS FOR TOAST

Usually when he talks about the Doctor I am nodding along emphatically and wishing I saw more of that in his material, because I generally think he has it spot on. But this is a bit weird idk. I guess it is not the idea I am objecting to so much as the way he expressed it.

[identity profile] mrv3000.livejournal.com 2011-04-14 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I mean, the bit about the Doctor not being the marrying kind - yeah. I get that. But the whole line them up, love them and leave them shit... Last time I checked, the Doctor wasn't an intergalactic playboy.

BUT, YOU KNOW. I KEEP LOOKING FOR THINGS LIKE CHARACTERIZATION WHEN I KNOW I SHOULDN'T.

Also glazed doughnuts are clearly the best. W/E Britain.

Mmmmmmmmmmm glazed donuts with maple frosting. Food of the gods. Blueberry cake donuts (with glaze) are also amazing. Chocolate-frosted are good too, as a crullers.

(The real question is what brand of donuts. Krispy Kreme forever!)

[identity profile] mrv3000.livejournal.com 2011-04-14 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
We used to have a Krispy Kreme near me and then they went away! *sniff sniff* They really were the best donuts.

Okay this is going to be a totally off topic and over-glamorized Michelle gush post. Then I shall speak to your points.

I AM So GLAD

by [livejournal.com profile] kammgirl


I am so glad your main online communique is LJ.
I am so glad that I have known you for a few years now and am still delighted by what you post and can still surprise you with a talking TARDIS backpack and a stuffed otter from a NJ zoo.
I am so glad that when I was a noob and overwhelming, you told me instead of just dropping me.
I am so glad that every 9/11 you send me an e-mail to let me know you're thinking of me. That I am not just a faceless username.
I am so glad that when I post about being sick or other sad things that often occur in my life you are one of the first ones in there giving me virtual hugs.
I am so glad that you always answer my e-mails and that it always makes me smile to see your addy in my inbox.
I am so glad that when you discuss you hear the other person and do not condescend to them.
I am so glad that you taught me what fandom is supposed to be. A group that likes the same things, becomes friends and just has fun.
I am so glad you love D/R and Rose herself as much as you did when they aired.
I am so glad you love scifi.
I am so glad that you never look down on others for what they like.
I am so glad D/R enabled me to find your LJ.
Lastly, I am so glad you are who you are.


Okay with that totally non random, emotional tribute out of the way, Tron Legacy was ...interesting. I actually did not know BB was in the original. Boston Cremes are the best and what douchey thing did Matt say in an interview? And never watched, but heard good things about LRoC.

Thus, I conclude.

Awwwwwwwww. You are too sweet! *hugs*

And Matt seems to have bought into the mindset that the Doctor is some sort of intergalactic Casanova.

I'm the odd one out most of the time, but my favorite doughnut is Dunkin' Donuts Devils Food Glazed. Not frosted, because that's chocolate overkill. :)

Tron: Legacy is the next thing in my Netflix queue. I know it's going to be terrible, but I want to see it anyway.

Trying really hard not to click the link of the Matt Smith interview, but I'm probably going to anyway. *Shakes fist preemptively*

Sadly we don't have any Dunkin' Donuts by us. *sniffs*

At least the effects are kinda neat. :D

Me either (NorCal). Which is why I buy one before I even leave the airport in Chicago (or wherever else has them). WHY do we not have any Dunkin' Donuts in Cali? It's dumb.

At least the effects are kinda neat. :D

And this is why I have to see it. I know a bunch of folks who worked on the effects. I feel kinda bad for not seeing it in the theater.

Maybe they don't like us. I have to say, though, that everyone raves about their coffee. I tried it once when I was in Boston and wasn't really impressed.

Oh cool! I will say that the most interesting parts were the chase scenes and so on. Anything that didn't involve plot. :D

RE: Tron - NEXT TO NO SENSE?! How!? I have seen that movie 5 times already and bought it on the very first day it was out. And yes, I know I'm still young, but I HAVE seen the original Tron. Do you mean the story lines don't really add up from original to sequel? Maybe yes then, but it doesn't take away from the fact that Tron Legacy is EPIC. EPIC I TELL YOU!

And RE: best doughnuts: I LOOOVE maple bars. Also plain old chocolate glazed and twists. YUM DOUGHNUTS.

Okay first of all, if humans are digitized, why can they bleed inside? (Just the first question in a very long line.)

I do like chocolate glazed too. MMMMMM.

It's digital blood. DIGITAL BLOOD! My boyfriend also had a lot of questions. I was like "SHUUUUUUUUSH YOU, DO NOT QUESTION THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS TRON."

Man, now I want doughnuts... dammit.

Mmmm... doughnuts. Well, I do have a soft spot for glazed doughnuts, but my FAVORITE is a doughnut with chocolate (or vanilla really, idc) icing and chocolate chips on top. NOM NOM NOM.

Also re:Tron, I know nothing about it except at California Adventure this past summer they were trying to make this Tron themed street party thing happen in the Hollywood section. And they sold alcohol, but it was like $13 for a watered down mojito. BOOOOO DISNEYLAND. WHY IS YOUR BOOZE SO EXPENSIVE?

HA! I'm not sure there'd be anything much more awkward than a dance party at Disneyland. And $13? Yeesh.

What I can't seem to figure out is how all the oldschool No Sex Please, We're Whovians fanboys are dealing with the many blatant statements from this production team that the Doctor is an intergalactic playboy who likes to have a pretty girl on each arm at all times.

How has Moffat maintained his reputation as "the guy who will make Doctor Who just like the Good Ole [asexual] Days" despite this?

I suspect black magic.

[identity profile] mrv3000.livejournal.com 2011-04-14 01:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Because once you're a Moffat stan you're in all the way to the point of blindness to any possible flaws? BECAUSE HE IS A GOD AND GODS ARE NOT QUESTIONED.

That's all I've got.

[identity profile] papilio-luna.livejournal.com 2011-04-14 02:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I wouldn't even necessarily call it a flaw (I mean, I somewhat disagree but whatevs), but just a big contradiction.

Or, you know, eldritch powers that no human is meant to posses lest it drive them maaaaaad.

All I've watched from the series 6 stuff is them reading tweets in American accents and the "band" with Karen. But since you linked below *reads*

LOL I just rewatched series 4 the other day, so I'm thinking of when, in Partners in Time, the girl slipped him his number and he was all, "Yeah, no" or how he didn't want anyone to be romantically interested in him when he was talking to Donna about coming along. HE JUST GETS KISSED A LOT, OK. Besides, he spent 4 series being in love with Rose and 2 series moping after her, and gave his clone, who is exactly like him but mortal, to spend his life with Rose. But then again, Reinette and Elizabeth 1.

OK. YOU AND FRANCES ARE EVIL AND MAKING ME WANT DOUGHNUTS, AND THERE AREN'T REALLY ANY DOUGHNUTS IN GUATEMALA. YOU GUYS ARE EVIL! When I'm in California, I don't eat doughnuts very much, and usually when I do it's a krispy kreme one. Love those! I like custard fillings.

The Doctor has his moments. I mean, One got accidentally engaged once. (And was kind of a douche about it himself.) But there's a big difference between that and thinking the Doctor's a swinging single, just looking for the next hookup. He may as well break out the open shirt and the chains.

DOUGHNUTS.
