So after a hideous accident wherein I transferred eight years of LiveJournal posts (some of them formerly privacy screened and highly embarrassing in broad daylight), I have recovered the situation and now only selected Doctor Who related posts from my LJ past are appearing reposted here. These are all in the lj category.
There was some fun stuff in there. I do like the concept of Monsters and Wank, although Reebar is no longer pretending to like Doctor Who and I’m no longer accommodating him. It’s still kind of funny to evaluate episodes on how much they contain of two of the scariest things in the world:
- Emotional wank
By the way, I’d like a less offensive synonym for wank but am having trouble coming up with one pithy enough. I think you know what I mean – similar to drama but maybe a bit less manufactured. It’s easy to think of drama now as useless interpersonal conflict and that’s not what I mean at all.
Of course the word monsters may not be right either. We usually get people of lots of species, some of whom are villains, some of which might qualify as monsters. We don’t as often get brainless scary things.
I did just outright delete a lot of posts that were frivolous or cat-obsessed or naughty. You don’t need those, right?
