Happy Hogswatch, everyone!

For those confused by the title of this rather short entry, go give the Discworld novel "Hogfather" a read. Or even better, just watch the TV movie based on it. Check after the jump for a YouTube upload of it. It's in 9 minute parts, though. Enjoy.

Poor RTD... :'(

I'm not usually one to follow the latest gossip on people who've worked on my favorite shows and whatnot, but there's some news I've read recently that's kinda distressing to me. Former head writer for Doctor Who Russell T. Davies (or "RTD" if you're of the shortening mind) has put his Hollywood career on hold to move back to his home in Manchester. Why? Because his partner has been diagnosed with brain cancer and needs some serious treatment. I read about it here. I understand his pain, as 2 of my friends from church -who are brother and sister- lost their father to it.

Just putting this out there: If you see this as another opportunity to bash on him for doing shit in Doctor Who you don't like, than you have no soul. I don't care who you are. He brought back a show that had been considered since the 1980s as "past its prime" and "a joke" and made it relevant again in pop culture. My thoughts and prayers are with him in this trying time.

Happy 48th Birthday, "Doctor Who"!

For those who don't know, today is a day that a lot of people hold dear to their hearts. Well, if you're British and/or a geek at any rate. 48 years ago today was the day Doctor Who debuted on television. So I decided that in celebration, I'm going to describe the personality of each the -as of this writing- 11 Doctors, accompanied by pictures of each of them. Are you sitting comfortably? Good, then join we'll begin. After the jump, that is.

Trailer for a live-action "Phoenix Wright" movie! XD

If there's one game series I cannot get enough of sometimes, it's the Ace Attorney series. It's courtroom antics at it's finest. So, when I found out that Capcom had endorsed a live action film adaptation, I was excited. Especially because it was being made in Japan, nowhere near Hollywood's "creative input". After seeing the trailer, it got me even more excited. I'm praying for it to be released here in the USA. Wanna see the trailer for yourself? Take a look after the jump. I certainly have no "objections" so far... XD

In Defense of Rose Tyler and the Doctor's Attachment to Her.

This is probably gonna provoke a serious flame war, but I feel the need to get this out of my system and onto this blog ASAP. Basically, this is going to be an entry dedicated to defending the character Rose Tyler from the rather harsh feelings and unfair criticism that I feel some Doctor Who fans have had towards her. I'll also make an attempt at explaining why I feel the Doctor was so emotionally attached to her, which is something else some fans took umbrage with. If you're interested in what I have to say, then please join me after the jump. If not, then don't bother posting a comment. I won't stand for people bitching about Rose without first reading what I have to say.

My 5 Favorite "Doctor Who" Audio Dramas from Big Finish.

I know, I know. I'm well-aware that I promised in my premier on Doctor Who that I'd write entries on each of the -as of this writing- 11 Doctors. Well, I ultimately decided it was gonna be too much of a hassle, so I'm just probably gonna write up on random Who-related subjects from time to time on here. This entry is dedicated to my 5 favorite Doctor Who audio dramas from the company Big Finish. Join me after the jump, and prepare to hide behind the sofa.

A friend of mine shared the following video on his blog a few days ago, and it was too awesome not to share on here. Check it out after the jump.

A Premier on "Doctor Who".

Hello, everyone. Here's hoping you had a great September 11th. I pray we all that we all can continue to move forward in the world after that terrible tragedy 10 years ago.

Now that's out of the way, I decided that I'd bite the bullet today and write a blog entry on Doctor Who, that British sci-fi TV show I mentioned in my first entry. If I have piqued your interest, join me after the jump. If not, I still think you should check it out. But if you don't, that's perfectly fine.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" review.

Let's Plays: A Unique Way to Experience Games.

Today, I decided to dedicate a blog entry to a gaming phenomenon that's sweeping YouTube: Let's Plays. For those who don't know, Let's Plays -hereby referred to as LPs- are basically video game walkthrough videos, but with commentary from the player added in. The commentary provides the viewer with tips and tricks for the game that's being played, along with the occasional non-sequitur.

A few things I forgot.

Hello again, readers. Kinda forgot a few things. It's been one of those days for me. I just wanted to say I have a few accounts elsewhere if you're interested:

My YouTube My Twitter My Formspring

Enjoy. :)

Let the ramblings begin.

Hello, readers. My name is Kevin, and I'm a geek. I'm not the least bit ashamed to admit it, either. I love comics, video games, sci-fi, and other such stimulants for the imagination that are not drugs. I was born on September 3rd, 1986. If you haven't noticed, my 25th birthday is right around the corner. It's this very Saturday, in fact. I dunno why I decided to start this blog today of all days, but oh well. We'll just have to figure that out as we go, won't we folks?
