None of these are worth their own post. In aggregate, however, I think they’re worthy of discussion.
The latest season of Doctor Who has finished, and Clara is no more (TARDIS diners not withstanding). This means we can be expecting a new companion.
It’s been a while since I wrote one of these, but I was watching Ant-Man today, and an odd set of mental leaps got me to Airwolf. Don’t ask me how. I’m honestly not sure, myself.
Earlier this evening, I watched episode 4 of the current season (series, for you Brits) of Doctor Who.
I’m hoping the geeks here can help with this.
If you were to make a list of historical figures who are *inherently* important, who would they be? And why?
I just finished watching the Louis Theroux documentary on the Westboro Baptist Church (Fred Phelps’ brood), and listening to them in their own words educated me. I’m still 100% against them, but I now have a better understanding of who they are and why they do what they do. And, as every government knows, good intel…
Language is more than words, it is shaped by the world and shapes our view of the world.
This one may seem like an odd choice, but remember: I’m basing my suggestions on the premise of the shows, not the execution.
I’m watching Arrow s03e20, and a point of language annoyed me so much that it broke my “willing suspension of disbelief”: Pronunciation.
There are a number of shows from way-back-when that had a good premise, but (maybe) not so great execution. Many of these are ripe for resurrection in the modern era—minus the theme songs by Mike Post. Project Lazarus is my opinion as to which are ripe for resurrection.
I knew something was wrong when I saw that 12 Monkeys was going to be on my favorite torrent site tonight, and I already have 2 episodes on my hard drive that haven't been watched.

I'll post this to my personal Kinja blog for the few who might read it:
One of the fun parts about working on the Trilobyte Project is doing research and coming up with fun characters. One of the universes I'm building has 12 sapient space ships called the Dragons. Each one is named after a mythical dragon. Some of the names are easy, but I wanted to get some diversity in the names.
So... for all of the followers of this blog (both of them)....
So... I've been building worlds for about....um... 30 years (gods, I feel old now). I finally decided that the best thing to do would be to open up the worlds I've created and let everyone else use them.
