Taking a break

It’s time for a break from studying, worrying about my boyfriend that’s newly operated in hospital and all other things bombarding my mind.

First of I will pay tribute to the wonderful and inspiring Elisabeth Sladen that sadly passed away on the 19th of April.

 I’m sure we Whoians will miss her immensely but her spirit lives on. She is without a doubt my favourite companion of the Doctor and a personal female inspiration.

Now something a bit more cheerful at least to me. I needed something to cheer me up a bit I thought so I bought two Tim Burton Tragic Toys figurines. I love the book “The melancholy death of Oyster boy and other stories” so it’s only natural that I should collect the figures done after the artwork of that book. Though my absolute favourite Melonhead is not among those figurines. This time I caught Robot boy and  Pin cushion Queen.

This has left me with a new problem finding places to put my new treasure. I am a pirate you know.. I’ll go window shopping and suddenly go “ohhhh shiny” and buy something I like just like that. Very bad of me I must admit, but hey I only live for a short time.  Well my shelves is starting to look over crowded it’s time for new bookcases and that is soon. I have been naughty and bought some more classical literature too, like I didn’t have too many already. Somehow I can’t resist those classical books especially those from the Victorian era, which is also one of my nerdy interests.

 Yes this is my Tragic toy shelves and just my tragic toys. I also have a lot of Doctor who stuff, Death Note, Other Burton and LDD(Living dead dolls) plus some random figures like the crow and Spike from Buffy etc…

Yeah I know how nerdy is this… I might add I have Two Roleplaying games ( Doctor Who, Discworld), a half Warhammer Dark elves army, some LOTR Warhammer figures, a miniature Rugby team (unpainted), an unpainted statue of Damian Lewis as Major Dick Winters from BoB and lots more. And hark… countless pokémon I have both games and toys. I live by the principal not to be that kind of grown-up.

Whatever makes me wake up and out of bed in the morning is an investment so other people might think I am mad and probably as a hatter but you know what, I wouldn’t trade all the fun of all this for anything else. Sure I know it’s only stuff but it’s also inspiration and comfort when you feel yourself slip down to that dark and empty place called despair. So far so good (except I’m out of places to put things).

“I’ve always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they’d still say I’m a dark personality. “

Första försök till webbsida klar.

(Jo det är ett Proust manus som är bakrgrunds bilden, han fick representera min studiemotivation.)

Äntligen kan man börja varva ner en dag åtminstone innan det är dags för projektet och tentamens plugg.  Påsken är räddad. Tur man inte firar sånt då.

Men nu ska jag ta en liten rast i arbetet.

Tills nästa gång…

Yes I am a Whoian and bloody proud of it…

Since most of my nerd things has some or all to do with England or other anglo-speaking nations. I saw it fit to blog in English.

I am first and foremost a Whoian that is my name for someone that is fanatical about Doctor who ( don’t know the correct term since I am not that kind of nerd) and the world that has been created around the series. I most say I am not that excited about Torchwood too much of a secret service American vibe for me. I like the new series but I am not one of those “young ones” that don’t appreciate the tinfoil monsters and bubble-wrap insects of the classical series. The Tom Baker era is great and Jon Pertwee kicks ass (some might recognise the name his son is Sean Pertwee who also is an actor and appeared in Dog soldiers ) I love the ingenuity of low budgets and imagination I think it to be far superior of any computer effect. I admit some computer effects are nice but somehow nowadays people got so lazy that they don’t seem to be able to imagine some things in their own mind. No wonder we need brain training.

Why do I like Doctor Who so much? I’m not really sure there is a simple answer to that but I love the fact that the series is not all that serious and yet at the same time are very serious and address issues and discuss and you don’t realise it until a bit later. The small things the small gestures are something that I have come to fall in love with. It challenges the viewer but not in an direct way. I also like the positivism that the doctor represents, that stubbornness and belief in something that is important in life no matter what you believe in. I think it inspiring especially for someone like me who has throughout childhood been told to smile more and look on the positive side. To me the doctor is not just positive he tries to be but he is not. He’s very human in that way and that’s okay. I don’t like the big alien threat kind of thinking I like the kind caring individual alien thinking. The doctor is not just a time lord he’s the doctor who happens to be one of the time lords very much like his childhood friend and nemesis the master who also happens to be a time lord.

Series 5 and The Christmas special 2010 (titled A Chrismas Carrol)

I was the first one not to believe in Matt Smith as the doctor. I am not at all happy about making everyone on telly younger just to look cool.

I was wrong, as the doctor Matt Smith is brilliant. Bow ties are cool indeed. I like series 5  a lot Moffat is a brilliant writer and he brings a certain kind of vibe to the series something almost Gothic in its suspense. I love that and I am thrilled he got the head writing role. Of course I had to buy the special edition steel box. I love steel boxes I have both band of brothers series in steel boxes and lady vengeance. Steel boxes are cool!

 

Not much to say about the Christmas special 2010 since I am a huge fan of Dickens, Doctor who and Michael Gambon. I was ecstatic and not disappointed. Love story and flying sharks. What more do you need? *GERONIMO*

A christmas carol

If you need a laugh or dream away to another place, Doctor Who is the series for you.
