Leave Cartoon Network Feedback. (Category: Programming- Adventure Time) Try not to flame them, but explain what the episode and the subtext mean to you, and why you want to support the episode. Tell them we do NOT appreciate them cutting off discussion about the possible queer relationships in the show by removing the “Mathematical!” video. They need to know there is support for the PB/M ship, one-sided, subtexty, or otherwise.
Leave Feedback on the “Mathematical” Youtube page. They are the ones who posted the video about the shipping which Cartoon Network had removed. We should applaud them for not treating the subtext as a taboo subject and treating it like any other relationship.
You wanna add another candidate? It’s like the Republican primary is like a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week, you just add another idiot. …First you guys wanted (Michele) Bachmann, then (Rick) Perry — now (Chris) Christie? You know what, Republican base? Meet me at camera three!
(To camera three.) Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe your candidates aren’t the problem — maybe it’s you? You’re hard to please or figure out! You’re unrealistic! I mean, you’re pro-life, yet — (rolls tape of GOP members applauding Texas’s death penalty) — what was that? You’re afraid of ‘death panels,’ yet for uninsured coma patients — (rolls tape of GOP members shouting ‘YEAH!!!’ when Ron Paul was asked if a patient without health insurance should be allowed to die) — that’s the crowd: ‘YEAH!!!’ You guys ‘support the troops’ — well except for Captain Creatine over here (rolls tape of gay U.S. Army soldier who asked GOP candidates if they’d repeal DADT — and was booed by GOP debate crowd).
It’s like the Republican base is at war with its own talking points: ‘I want someone who’s gonna cut taxes — and balance the budget! Someone who’s a skilled orator — that doesn’t talk all fancy! The child of poor immigrants — who will build a fence to keep them out of this country! Someone who’s strong enough for a man — but Ph-balanced for a woman!
…It’s like your ideal candidate is a rare, super-heavy element that can only exist in a particular particle accelerator. And even then, only for a fraction of a second. Before you all remember how much you hate science.
You guys need to take a long, hard look in the mirror, and not come away thinking ‘Hey, there’s something wrong with this mirror.’
”—JON STEWART, on media-fed rumors that New Jersey governor Chris Christie may enter the GOP presidential race — as well as the hypocritical sentiments of the Republican party — on The Daily Show. (via emilyisobsessed)
This Cretaceous research took me a long time. Like ten days. I get really anxious when I’m not churning out pages, so the past week-and-a-half has been nerve-wracking for me. But here’s the good news: I’ve got all my Cretaceous scenes mapped out now. I know what’s happening when with whom and how. And I just finished battling through my first Cretaceous scene too! Yeah, I’m proud of myself. Sticker. Cookie. Dukes of Hazzard after school.
Meanwhile, I spent most of last week in Boston. Why, you ask?
More research, beeotch! Checking out places in Massachusetts for the traveler to live, go to school, work, hang out, etc. Need real details on this stuff, people.
Although, I did learn an important lesson: there are no sea-cliffs in Massachusetts. None. I even checked topographical maps of the whole coast. I’d have to go to Maine or Rhode Island or something, and that just wouldn’t work with the logistics of the rest of the story.
Which brings me to a juncture in the road. Do I go through the pains of changing a whole lot of the story in the spirit of accuracy…? OR, do I cut myself some slack and just “imagine” that there are sea-cliffs in Massachusetts?
I think I need to give myself a break on this one. I’m just gonna make it up. I haven’t fibbed or taken a short-cut on anything over the past 10 months, so I think I’ve earned it: one little white lie. Meeting adjourned.
And so it was that Andrew Volpe bullshat a non-scientific detail for the first time in his trilogy. I hope nobody freaks out.
Still, I’m well aware that some douche is going to read the book and then e-mail me and say, “Hey man… FYI, you’re wrong, there aren’t any sea-cliffs in that part of Massachusetts… your book is inaccurate,” to which I will reply:
1.) There are sea-cliffs wherever I say they are in Massachusetts.
2.) The story is about time travel and your only factual gripe is about sea-cliffs?
and 3.) You’re a douche.
Actually, I’ll probably just say #3. So go ahead, guy. E-mail me and talk smack. I’m cutting myself slack here and there’s nothing you can do about it. I am not afraid to call a random person a douche over the internet. It’s really not hard to do. But if you don’t want to be considered a douche by the relatively unknown author of a yet-unwritten sci-fi trilogy, then try to just suspend disbelief.
While hanging from the TARDIS, the Doctor looks up into it and for a couple of seconds has a confused look on his face.
When Rory and Amy exit the elevator on the second floor of the hospital, Rory glances behind him at something, but when he looks back towards Amy, he shakes his head like he forgot something. It is about 42:49.
In the scene at the end of the episode where Amy goes into the TARDIS for the first time. there’s one point where she leans back on the console and is looking around the room. The camera is pointed towards her face, so we can’t see what she’s looking at. She looks around with a sort of awe-struck smile, but then her eyes linger over something and her expression turns into a look of horror. She starts breathing really quickly and turns as if to get the Doctor’s attention, but as soon as she’s facing him she just asks, perfectly normally, “Why me?”, as if she’d completely forgotten about what she’d just seen. Also, she flicks a TARDIS button/switch/lever at this point. Accidental Amy or something meaningful?
The Beast Below - At around 9:25 a black figure walks past Amy, she looks confused/scared for a couple of seconds then shrugs it off.
Victory of the Daleks - Near the end after the Daleks escape, the Doctor moves slowly backwards, as he gets near to the green framed window/doorway he looks to his left with a shock. The camera then switches to Amy and Churchill who both stare to the Doctor’s left with a look of shock before Amy continues on as normal with the line “Doctor, it’s OK you did it, you stopped the bomb.”
The Lodger - At 21:47 for a couple of shots Amy looks in the distance or at the screen and gasps, then shouts for the Doctor’s attention but he doesn’t listen. She looks away and shakes it off.
Vampires of Venice - At the end when Rory, Amy, and the Doctor are standing by the TARDIS, the TARDIS door is open and then shuts on it’s own.
The Big Bang - There are cloaked figures behind the Sarcophagi in the museum; a third figure moves out of shot at the edge of the screen at about 13:31
