When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who on your LJ.

Just one? ;)

"I'm a time traveler; I point and laugh at archaeologists."

"Well, Sergeant? Aren't you going to say that it's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside? Everybody else does." "It's pretty obvious, isn't it?"


Perfect weather for Leaderee - mid-70s, nice breeze, rain last night, 50 tonight.... Mind you, even in less than ideal weather, like last year (90, muggy, etc), it's still a fun weekend.

I'm not there.

Crap. :P

“I didn’t vote for him,” an American once said, “But he’s my president, and I hope he does a good job.”

That—on this eve of the 4th of July—is the essence of this democracy, in 17 words.  And that is what President Bush threw away yesterday in commuting the sentence of Lewis “Scooter” Libby.

The man who said those 17 words—improbably enough—was the actor John Wayne....Collapse )

Sapphire and Steel have been assigned

Only knew of the coolness of this through hearsay. Until my sister came this weekend bearing gifts. So. Cool. And proof of what you can do with almost no budget. Doctor Who in the late 70s/early 80s at least had enough money for a quarry - PJ Hammond didn't even have that. ;) Most of that has to do with Mr Hammond himself, and casting Joanna Lumley and David McCallum. I can also see hints of it in current Who and Torchwood, not only because PJ Hammond wrote one of the better eps of the latter, but a mood behind it. (To the point of, catching someone up who came in in the middle of the first story, calling them Time Agents.  ;))
