The Wedding of River Song Screencaps and Yet More Thoughts


Screencaps for The Wedding of River Song are up.

Raw caps

Finished caps

1920 x 1080

My first time capturing at this resolution. The images are over a megabyte each. Some are more than two. I don’t know what that’s going to do to my hosting over the long run. May have to reconsider my format options.

Had to accept a few blurry caps to get any at all of certain moments. All of my caps of the balloon cars sucked hugely.

Also these are a little jumbled in places where I went through a scene, figured I missed something, backed up, and went through again. They’re localized jumbles; nothing’s severely out of place.

Human vision is amazing. To look at a sequence with seemingly perfect clarity and discover it’s simply a clever collection of blurs is astonishing.

Also, I should probably make it a policy not to do a review until there’s been sufficient time to digest the material. I took many more notes through subsequent watchings and in the capping process that should really have gone into the review. Hence, this post is categorized with the review categories as well.

Gay Married Anglican Marines

I’ve been giving some thought to the Thin Fat Gay Married Anglican Marines. If some of these factors converge so seldom that these guys don’t need names, that’s a bit sad for a far future.

When did they decide to go nameless? When they got married? Or is that what drew them together? When they were single, were they Thin Gay Anglican Marine and Fat Gay Anglican Marine, and just knew destiny was with them when they met? Did each one grow up known as Small Anglican Civilian Child? Were they Thin and Fat, respectively, even then? Were they even boys?  You can’t assume anything; Cassandra was a boy.

What does it say on their military ID cards? Do they have Thin and Fat in the “first name” fields and all the rest of it crammed into “last name”? Or are they Thin One and Fat One on their IDs the same way they are in introductions?

It’s going to be a bit hard getting Fat One’s photograph for his new ID card, now that he’s changed orders. A tied-off knot probably doesn’t photograph all that well.

Are they even still married? Anglican priests can get married, but since the Headless Monks are governed by the Papal Mainframe (herself), one could expect Catholic rules.

Then again, given the circumstances, Thin One’s probably a widower now. Even if Fat One weren’t cut down in the fighting, does he count as alive anyway? If he is still walking, does Thin One get survivor benefits?

These are the sorts of thoughts that occupy me as I shampoo my hair.

Good heavens, I wish I’d done this ages ago. As the upload goes on, huge gaps are apparent where once there were beautiful screencaps. These things happen as time wears on and computers and various storage media break or go missing. Be assured, I’ll go after them again!
