Doctor Whooch // Episode 031 // Vacation Haze

In which we’re on vacation, losers!

This week’s episode features a first: while we’ve been doing Doctor Whooch long enough to talk about the two specials that rounded off Matt Smith’s run as The Doctor, we’ve never been recording during a full series. Whelp, that’s all clearly changing, because we have Capaldi to talk about! In this episode, we say things! About “Deep Breath”! What exactly? Who knows! Oh, and we also don’t mention our engagement, because we recorded it before that happened but HEY YOU GUYS WE GOT ENGAGED! Isn’t that cool? That’s pretty cool.

Outro music is “Let It Ride” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive

And So It Goes

1. Trying this out on the iPad, with nothing more than the formatting options that the WordPress app has to offer. I’m pondering a bit of a chronicle of the upcoming vacation, and figured ease would be the key. Low formatting, high content, blah blah blah. Consider this a test.

2. We’ve arrived back home after my sister’s wedding, and while there are definitely stories, they’ll probably happen later or not at all. I was the MC at the reception, and that was a bit of a task, but the whole day went relatively well, and my sister looked happy and wonderful, and that’s really all I could ask. Her husband is a great guy, and I’m glad to have him and his son (and my nephew) be a part of the family.

3. Speaking of weddings, no writing was accomplished this weekend. Oh and also, Danica and I will be attending another wedding this coming weekend. And then it’s time for vacation! Aaaaand I’m still writing what I can for the lovely internet. Ah, the crazy times. I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

4. Speaking of writing, I think I have a decent schedule happening for Variant Edition, one that I hope to maintain while we’re off on vacation. It won’t be anything I’m going to push too hard – the point of a vacation is to relax a bit – but hopefully, it should help get things moving a bit smoother in that regard.

5. This week at Comics Beat: an article about using the power of comics retail responsibly, and that Archie piece, again, probably.

More to come…

Quite Quiet.

And he disappears for a while. Of course he does.

  1. A couple of weeks ago, I posted a piece on Archie Comics over at Comics Beat and the damn thing disappeared. There are reasons for this that I may or may not discuss later, but keep an eye out for a similar article to go up early next week.
  2. This weekend, I will be attending my sister’s wedding, and man, I’m already stressing. I’m not even a big part of the wedding. Or well… I think I’m supposed to play a piano song at some point and I’m definitely supposed to MC the supper. So there’s that. But as for planning? Not so much. Anyway, still a little stressed, as we have this wedding and another to attend before we head off on our vacation and time is… condensing? I think. It’s weird.
  3. I’ve set some impossible goals to hit in terms of content. I think it will help me focus on doing some things, if not all things, and help me keep on track. I mean, if I aim for the impossible, but can be pleased with what amounts to a decent amount of content, that’s still good, right? Right.
  4. I started Variant Edition last week, and I didn’t post about it here. There will be something more substantial about it tomorrow, mark my words. MARK THEM.

And I’m out. We’ll talk soon, I promise. Almost definitely. Probably. Maybe.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 030 // Hand of OHMAWGAHD

In which we anger the liquor gods for the sake of your entertainment.

In this week’s episode, we reach the end of the line in our exploration of the first eight Doctors with the Slyvester McCoy serial “Remembrance of the Daleks” where the Doctor and his companion Ace fight the OH MY GOD IS THAT GEOFFREY FROM THE FRESH PRINCE??!?? It is!!!

…I’m sorry, where were we? Oh. Yeah, um, the Doctor and Ace fight Daleks and racism in the 60s during Doctor Who’s 25th year on the air, and it’s a whole thing. We talk about it. Then we talk about Guardians of the Galaxy a whole lot, because… you guys, it’s pretty rad. And we like space travellers.
