There are so many great choices here, but I especially love that quote from The Angels Take Manhattan hiding in the back of the last photo.
I found the quote frames from my wedding! Steal this idea.
I wish I saw this for my book-themed wedding!
Huzzah! I can’t wait to read it!

This week we do lots of talking about villains who don’t. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss what makes silent villains so creepy and effective.
I need everyone to stop what you are doing and listen to this podcast right now. Just put it on in the background while you’ll scrolling through Tumblr. You’ll thank me when the podcast is over and you realize you’ve been staring at the same page for 30 minutes because you’ve been listening so intently to this podcast.
This podcast is about silent villains, but it is about so much more than that. It’s about how language and the ability to communicate can make—or break—a villain, and how the lack of communication influences how we interact with a character. There is an INCREDIBLY interesting section near the end about how language is used as a tool of colonization and oppression. There is also a really fascinating section about gender, how the companions interact with the Doctor, and how they are often the ones that reach out to characters who would otherwise remain silent.
So I need you all to listen to this because I have a lot of thoughts about this but they’re not coherent enough for a post yet, and I’d like to hear your thoughts!
An excellent episode! The Verities always leave you with lots to think about, but this episode was particularly brilliant (see above).
I’m interested to hear Liz and Kat’s thoughts on this topic as well. Maybe a Verity! Extra!? (Oh boy, that’s a lot of punctuation.)
I used shrinky dinks to make some Doctor Who keychains.
Eventually, I’m going to make one for each doctor; I just want to have the best quote for each one.
JK Rowling’s new update about Harry, Ron, Hermione, and friends.
It was quite fun
Whooo! Whoo! A Harry Potter Story.
She’s still got it.
The news just broke… Walter Dean Myers has passed. In his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books, served as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, won too many awards and honors to list, advised and inspired kids and young writers everywhere, and impacted thousands of lives. He was a lifelong proponent of diversity in children’s literature, and just a few months ago wrote an article that once again sparked the discussion.
Rest well, sir. You will be remembered always.
Beyond this, words fail me.
Objects of the Eleventh Era
"There’s something you better understand about me ‘cause it’s important and one day your life may depend on it. I am definitely a mad man with a box."
Love these designs! (And good quote choices, too).
On this day in 1819, the American poet Walt Whitman was born in Long Island, NY. Among his great works is the poem “When I Heard The Learn’d Astronomer” read to you here by the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, our very own Neil deGrasse Tyson with images from the new Space Show Dark Universe.
Happy Birthday, Walt!
