"...any cause to sing"

Music junkie, storyteller, coffee addict, film fanatic, bookworm, shutterbug, anglophile, and chocoholic. I frequently post about Supernatural, Firefly, Six Feet Under, HIMYM, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Disney movies and British shows like Doctor Who, Miranda, Torchwood, Merlin, Sherlock, Call the Midwife, Mock the Week, and QI. I'm also enamored with various podcasts and blog about them like mad. Benedict Cumberbatch, Freema Agyeman, Tom Hiddleston, John Barrowman, Miranda Hart, Matthew Grey Gubler, Josh Groban, and Joss Whedon get a lot of my attention. I have deep and abiding obsessions with Calvin & Hobbes, Monty Python, Shakespeare, David Eddings, cooking, Cabin Pressure Tolkien, World Without Sundays, the Dresden Files, fairy tales, Arthurian legend, photography, history. How Stuff Works, Ireland, Charlie Chan movies, guitars, Greek mythology, and playing in the rain.

The story behind the sequence: The mechanical-themed sequence was designed by a fan, U.K. motion graphics and animator Billy Hanshaw, and when showrunner Stephen Moffat saw it online, he reached out to Hanshaw to adapt the sequence for Season 8. (read the full article here and watch Billy’s sequence here)

i love the term “bear with me” because it could mean either 1 of 2 things:

  • asking someone to be patient
  • confirmation that the zoo heist was a success

…Near the village of Braachaat, outside Antwerp, Belgium. The last photo shows a grotto-like cave under the mansion that may have been used as a bar in the past.

"I’m depressed, as well, that I even have to go to the Apple Store, because I never wanted that for my life. I was perfectly content before. I was a non-iPhone user and I was happy. But like all non-iPhone users, eventually I gave in. I listened to them. I gave in to the iPhone nazis."

Radical Orpheus descends to the underworld.

he wrote eurydice power ballads with guitar solos so intense they made hades headbang

So, what you’re trying to tell me is that they passed Cerberus because the poor dog didn’t have enough paws to cover his too many ears and died rather haemorrhagically?

Even John would have hated John.

This is heartbreaking.

If Kia and I are proving anything…. You never have to truly grow up. Lol


Yes, Megan and I are out to prove that you never really have to grow up. Case in point, when she last visited, she (30) and I (29) went bowling, stayed up late watching scary movies, made multiple trips for snow cones, spent four hours in an arcade, and roasted marshmallows in my apartment.

There’s a difference between being an adult & being a grown up. As you get older, you have adult responsibilities but that doesn’t mean you have to act like a grown up.

A few of my cousins in their 40s, in the right set of circumstances, act like teenagers while the one who’s fifteen acts like she’s 60. One of my coworkers is 24, married, and a homeowner who hosts Tupperware parties. Another is 38 with four children and she goes to karaoke with her boyfriend every Friday. 

So absolutely be an adult. Be responsible. Get health insurance, do your income taxes, have a budget, pay your bills, be someone who is reliable and trustworthy but don’t ever let that stand in the way of being you, of having fun and doing what you love.

While you’re in college, study hard, learn lots, get involved, make good grades, stay focused on what you want to get out of your hard work, but every so often go for ice cream at 10 o’clock at night, have Disney sing-a-longs with your roommate while you clean for room checks, gallop to class like you’re King Arthur and Patsy, go for midnight strolls around campus with a friend and toss a beach ball while you walk, lay on blankets and pillows in a field and have pizza delivered there. Be an adult, but don’t think you have to act like a grown up. Just do good and have fun.

(And yes, all those things I mentioned in the paragraph above are really things my friends and I did at college)
