Tennant is F*cking Awesome

"Yes because there are laws, there are laws of time. Once upon a time there were people in charge of those laws but they died...they all died! D'you know who that leaves? Me! It's taken me all these years to realize the laws of time are mine! AND THEY WILL OBEY ME!"


"We're not just fighting the flood, we're fighting time itself. AND I'M GONNA WIN!"

F*cking brilliant.

Doctor Who

For years, I had been hearing about Doctor Who. How could I not? I'm a geek who frequents internet message boards, of course I'd hear about him. Admittedly, I did not know what all the hullaballo for some seemingly goofy sounding British Superman was all about. Yes, I did hang my geek head in shame. It was my geek-blindspot, sorry. So when I found the DVDs for the first four seasons of the new series, I quickly snatched them out of the bin.

Let me tell you something about this new Doctor Who series: It's f*ckin' awesome. F*ckin' brilliant. Anyone who watches the series knows what I'm talking about. Doctor Who is packed full of aliens and paradoxes and great concepts. Everything about it is fantastic. The TARDIS is the Doctor's sentient timeship that looks like a 1950's police box but is actually quite spacious inside. The Daleks are these R2-D2 looking aliens and are the sworn enemies of the Doctor's species, the Time-Lords. The alien races have wacky names such as the Ood, the Slitheen and the Carrionites. It's science fiction pushed to its limit and then some.

It's this wonderful introspection on what it means to be human from the point-of-view of this god-like being who loves everything humanity is about. In a word, simply, the Doctor is love. Love for traveling. Love for people. Love for life. And it is a breath of fresh air. Instead of focusing on the dark and gritty most modern storytelling focuses on, Doctor Who decided that life was more important. That all you need to face the devil are your wits and a cheery "A-HA!" That companions long gone and come back and meet the new companions and they can all get along. That war is harsh and surviving is harsher but if you try hard enough, you can figure out how to beat despair.

That is what Doctor Who is all about in the end really. Hope. It's about hope. That hope can let you conquer anything. You could be at the end of time and space itself but as long as you have hope, all is not lost. The good Doctor treats our hearts, minds and souls. He makes us better.

Doctor Who is clever and brilliant and most of all, fun. It's inspiring and romantic. If you have never seen the show, give it a chance. Let it surprise you. It's a testament to great television guaranteed to take you on a wacky, amazing journey. Allons-y!

Say Something

Hi, she says with a smile. Hi, he replies, barely audible. You're very pretty, he doesn't manage to say and two lives that should've intertwined, don't.

All because he didn't say.

The Song Remains The Same

It all ends the same way.

Abandon all hope ye who enter here.

So I'm gonna smile about the small victories I had. And then forget about it. It's for the best. Because I don't think I could measure up to you.

The problem with asking you how you are and checking up on you and caring about you, is, I don't want to have to lie to you when you ask me how I'm doing. Because you left a big gaping hole in my heart and it'll never fully close.

On Making New "Friends"

So. I made a new a "friend." Yes, that sort of "friend." She's cool, talky and actually likes a few things I like. How do I not mess this the fuck up?

Let things happen, kay JFav? Let this one come to you. Be smooth, not slimy. Be charming, not overbearing. Be funny, not corny. Relax. Your life does not depend on her. Get to know her more okay?

Don't move too fast. Don't imagine her as your girlfriend. Slowly discover who she is and after every new nugget of information, decide if you're willing to wait to get to know more of her. It's going to be a slow burn so don't panic.

I know, this is usually where you make a mistake, and when I say 'usually,' I mean, all the fucking time. Let's do something right this time alright? You're charming, caring and funny. Trust me on this one. You just gotta play smart and play it cool.

Alright? Pep talk's over, go get her.
