Ah, because LJ is mean and makes me pay them money to have more icons, this one got deleted from over there.  But [livejournal.com profile] aadarshinah and I were talking about Classic Who, and I mentioned this icon I used to have, so it must go up.

  This is the Cybermat from the Second Doctor serial "Tomb of the Cybermen".

Does anyone know if the Tragical History site moved, and if so, what its new address is?  I was trying for some new screencaps, only to find that it apparently doesn't exist anymore!
rhia_starsong: (hf tenacious)
This just in--

Muppet and I are sitting here watching Hot Fuzz yet again (what?), and I turned to her and said, "OMG, Tim Dalton should totally play the Master when if they bring him back--Tim Dalton for the Master!"  Muppet agreed that this icon needed to exist right now, so I set about getting caps.

Then I discovered this (scroll to very bottom of screen).


Can't find any corroboration, but still---eeee!
rhia_starsong: (nine glee)
Okay, Muppet and I are so excited about this, I have to share. A couple of minutes ago, Muppet was innocently brushing her teeth when I turned around and told her, "Hey, guess what? [livejournal.com profile] livii recced you on [livejournal.com profile] calufrax!" She ran over, going, "Really?!" and we had to stare at the entry for a bit, then glorious rounds of hugging, squeeing, laughing, and toothbrush-dancing erupted.

If you haven't read her fic, go click on the link above ::points:: and check it out. Very cool.

And, to top that off, here's an object lesson in how reading fanfic helps us on our senior thesis papers:

So, I'm a history major, and my thesis is on the importance of Yeats' poetry, specifically "Easter 1916" to the Irish independence movement. I'm looking into the events that inspired the poem, the Easter Rebellion, or Easter Rising, of 1916. So, this morning I'm (re)reading a fic I had kind of forgotten about, that is partially set on Easter Day, 1916, in Dublin. The Doctor is telling Rose about Yeats, etc., and mentions that the poem was recited up and down the countryside. Now, of course, I know better than to take this at face value; I'll still have to do the research, but that gives me a solid direction, right? Yes.

It's a good day.

Make a list of five of your favourite series (no peeking at the questions first), then answer the questions behind the cut.

1. House
2. Doctor Who
3. Torchwood
4. The West Wing
5. Numb3rs

Here are my answers )

Well, this comes a bit late, but here I am, home for the summer. So far, so good on the parental front, though one never knows when that might change. So, things I need to do:

Listy things )

In other cool news, we finished the rest of Tombs of the Cybermen, and my dad liked it! He liked it enough to want to watch more with me. I love sucking my parents into my fandoms; I did that with The West Wing too. Then we watched the first episode of The Dinosaurs, which I also have on DVD, because all of us remember it from TV, and how hilarious it was. Good times.

So [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza and I were looking at
this pic from Planet of Fire, and this was what transpired:

Steph: See what I mean about the rly small shorts? And innit cute? ::points::

Kaylie: OMG, did he steal those socks from Five?!

Steph: Probably. And the shoes! He definitely stole the shoes from Fivey. He probably stole the whole outfit from Five.

Kaylie:...No. He stole it from Nyssa.

Steampunk Dalek ahoy!

It's a Cybermat (bah-DUM ching)

I want one!!!
rhia_starsong: (need sleep)
So I'm making note cards for a fifteen-page research paper on the Vatican response to the Vietnam War, and I realised after about four or five cards that they have lj tags.  No, seriously.  They're marked by comma-separated terms, just like we mark our posts.  It made me giggle, more than was necessary, really.

I'm at home right now, because I was stupid enough to schedule a doctor's appointment at eight tomorrow morning, and it's closer to get to it from my house than school (plus my idiot parents have the car and won't give it back).  Thus necessitating me getting up at the ass-crack of dawn.  So even though we have a new wireless router, it's no match for college LAN, and my distribution upgrade is agonisingly slow.  I'm considering telling the poor thing to just give it up and wait 'til I get back to campus. 

I need to spend my next 'break' from researching making a few more Doctor Who icons; I don't feel like I have enough options.  For all my other fandoms, I have bookoos (yes, that's a word, shut up spell check) of different icons, but I've been somewhat slow on this one, hampered in part by blurry screencaps, burninated episodes (curse you, beeb!), and impending finals.  Hopefully I'll be able to make a few over the next couple of weeks, since I'm staying at school after finals until graduation.

The past couple of days, the weather here decided it was January again.  At the end of April.  What the fuck is wrong with you, Nature?!  I WENT OUT IN FLIP FLOPS, AND IT WAS FORTY DEGREES.  Not on!  The good news is, it's supposed to be about seventy-five tomorrow.  Gotta love the south.

So, that desktop meme that's all over our flists already.  Yeah.  Here's mine. )

I made this with bits of a Doctor Who fanart by mimi-na; it's Five and Ten.  I tend to change my background either quite frequently (and depending on my fandom mood) or leave it alone for weeks at a time.  Either way, I generally make all of them myself, or use screencaps.

Here are the pics from the Radio Times Anniversary Special. Enjoy!Cut )
rhia_starsong: (need sleep)
Yes, I know this is an old episode.  Yes, I watched it when it first aired.  But I was fleeing homework today, so I rewatched it.  There wasn't going to be a reaction post.  Really.  My laptop futzed out on me, so I took my stuff off to the campus library, and the wonderful video viewing rooms, reasoning that there wouldn't be many legit people in there on a Sunday afternoon.  Yeah, I was right.  Just in case someone came in and wanted the room, though, I had a notebook out so I could look like I was analysing the episode.  And then I started analysing the fucking episode.  Kaylie's comment was, "I'm so proud.  It's like you're a real film student."

So here it is.  Here's me going on for five pages about one television episode.Cut to save your flists. )

Now, if only I had put that much effort into my research...

In other news, amazon.com continues to pwn my bank account, as I ordered about five Doctor Who novels, one serial (The Invasion!), and two BSG soundtracks in the last two days.
rhia_starsong: (Five smiling)
I was totally unproductive today at schoolwork, which meant that I got a bit of iconning done, and here are a few of the fruits of my labour! Icons from (in no particular order): The Evil of the Daleks, The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Underwater Menace, Four to Doomsday, Earthshock, Time-Flight, and Castrovalva.

1. Castrovalva 2. Underwater Menace 3. Time-Flight
4. Earthshock 5. Evil of the Daleks 6. Four to Doomsday
7. Cyber-bug!
Take, comment/credit if you like (though it's appreciated!), and feel free to use textless icons as bases.

I saw this picture and it just begged to be macro'd. Really, it did. In strange, British voices. And this is what they said... )

Muppet, Kayliesaur, this is all your fault. ::giggles helplessly::
rhia_starsong: (Five/Master)
I just finished watching the commentary for Resurrection of the Daleks, a really good Five serial, and while it's not quite as cute as Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury, Peter Davison and Janet Fielding are good together.  My favourite part is when Peter Davison is talking about his young son, who is about two, and how he is really into Doctor Who.  As if this weren't a cute enough image, guess what the kid calls him?  That's right, Doctor Daddy.  All together now, d'awww. 
rhia_starsong: (Default)
So my Doctor Who DVDs came in yesterday, and this caused much excitement among the 'Squee Squad.' Muppet and I ended up watching about half of Resurrection of the Daleks, and I have kind of fallen in love with Five just a little. He has this great WTF face, and there's so much manhandling in his era. ♥

Then my laptop started acting up, and it wouldn't even play The Mind Robber, so we switched to Muppet's laptop to watch a bit of the commentary from that serial, and, oh, Frazer Hines.

Director: Wendy, did you like that dress?
Wendy Padbury: No, not at all.
Frazer Hines: We did.

Indeed, bless them for their apparent inability to age.
