Doctor Who and the star of doom
Astronomer Dr Megan Argo was working at Jodrell Bank with an international team that detected a powerful jet of energy from a star exploding in a distant galaxy as a catastrophic supernova. The breakthrough is being officially announced in heavily technical language to the world of science today by the journal Nature. But Megan, 28, a keen fan of British scifi favourite Doctor Who decided to write it up as a fan-fiction adventure to bring home the excitement of the team's finding to ordinary people.

She is a thing of beauty. And there is this wonderful moment at 5:37, that is the look of a man in love. Sigh!

So I watched "Collision" with my dad the other day. It was a Masterpiece Theater production staring Paul McGann and Lucy Giffith.

Since I don't want to write the Eight/Marian plot bunny that had hopped into my head, I went over to "A Teaspoon and an Open Mind" in the hopes that simply reading some Eight stories would be enough.

Behold the awesomeness that is the "Rebel Yell" series!

"Pardon me: I don't mean to be rude but could you possibly tell me where I am?"

The man was dressed like Oscar Wilde, with romantic curls falling to the shoulders of his green velvet frock coat and a grey silk cravat tucked into a matching waistcoat. He was also standing in front of a large, old-fashioned blue phone booth with the words "Police Box" over the door, like something you might find in an old British movie.

Abby Sciuto loved Oscar Wilde and old British movies.

One of my NaNoWriMo "Project Work in Progress" stories.

Thanks go out to the amazing [ profile] cincoflex who created the term, Koltarkta, and graciously let me use it. If you think Spock/Uhura is hot, you should check out her Trip/T'Pol stories.

I also want to thank the amazing folks at the Vulcan Language Dictionary. With out all their hard work, this story would have never happened.

There was always a thrill that comes with opening a new book.

For Cadet Uhura the thrill was intensified by that fact that the book was written in a different language. She fell back on her bed and drunk in the first line.

A few months ago Wil Wheaton blogged about a cool book he found called "Shatnerquake". Bill Shatner has to battle every character he's ever played.

Well, today the author is holding a one day give away. All he asks is that once you've read it, to post a review - at Amazon, or your blog, or whatever review site you may know.

Go to the author's blog to download it.

I really, really, really, REALLY, hope that the season is as awesome as the trailer makes it out to be. If the world ended because the sex alien came back and everyone was to busy bonking to fight, I will be pissed.

I'm at the Tram and it's awesome.

There's a Princess Leia, a white dress Padama, a blue skin dancing girl from Jabba's.

And a four foot tall crape paper Jabba!!!

EDIT 1: Slave girl Leia!

EDIT 2: There was "Random Star Wars Crap" - Robot Chicken, Troopers and other SW humor. Now It's Picture Time With Jabba!

EDIT 3: For your enjoyment, The Jedi Drinking Song


EDIT 5: And popcorn!

EDIT 6: It was the original version - which means Han shot first!!!
Watching this with other Star Wars fans was such a blast.

Bed now.

Hello, my baby
Hello, my honey
Hello, my ragtime gal

Send me a kiss by wire
Baby, my hearts on fire

If you refuse me
Honey, you'll lose me
Then you'll be left alone

Oh baby, telephone
And tell me I'm your own


Everybody do the Michigan rag
Everybody likes the Michigan rag

Every babe
And Jane
And Ruth

They're all
Walking to Deluth

Slide, ride, fly to Michigan
Stomp, romp, hop to Michigan
Jump, hop, up to Michigan Rag

That lovin' rag
