About Me --  Design  

She was beautiful, elegant. Like a tall clear glass filled with raw pasta.

16. For the first time in his life, he found himself imagining a future together with someone. He was embarrassed to tell her this but he had never really been in love with the women he had dated. “Well who would play me in this rom-com of your life?” she teasingly inquired. “You have such beautiful olive skin,” he crooned, “so you can be a person of color or racially ambiguous in the book but definitely a white woman in the movie.”


HIS GREATEST moment of Doctor Who fanboy-fantasy realization thus far came when he was called upon for the first time to operate the TARDIS, the homely 60s-era London police box that serves as the Doctor’s vessel for time travel. As he stood surrounded by set technicians explaining how to use it, Capaldi says, “I had to be very patient and not say to them, ‘I know exactly how to operate it. You don’t have to tell me a thing. Moon Man is here.’

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’

I found the quote frames from my wedding! Steal this idea.

I wish I saw this for my book-themed wedding!

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 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.)
