As I’m gearing up to head down to the 42 Lounge to have a few sonic screwdrivers before watching our dear Doctor take on what looks to be the time war.. I’m just so happy I managed to actually finish this project. I did take a few shortcuts, but alas, I did find something to say about all 102 episodes, since august.
If you must know what I’m wearing.. I found this shirt back in may for 12 bucks.. and though.. I need this for the 50th. It was only 12 bucks.. why not?
I’m also wearing my sonic screwdriver necklace I bought last christmas, of 9 and 10’s sonic. I’ve never been a big fan of 11’s.. and I like the blue a wee better.
Just to review.. here is the pre-quel..
and it airs at 1:50pm here in my time zone. The bar opens at 11am, but I’m headed down sooner as right now on Facebook, there are a 100 people RSVPing for it. I want my good seat at the bar, thus heading down there early to park and grab a good spot. I’ve tried to remain as spoiler free as possible thus making me happy that they are doing it in simlucast around the world, thus my british friends and I will be watching it at the same time, NO SPOILERS!
To bide time.. go to Google.com, they have this Doctor Who game in honor of the Anniversary.. if you die you “regnerate” I admit it took me at least two complete cycles to finish it. Thanks Google!
Hitting the shower.. then downtown! I might blog later about it, if there is anything good.. and totally noteworthy..
As of today, the 50th is 4 months away still.
In the meantime, still no word about a trailer.. and I’ve calmed down about it considerably, since I have realized that whatever and whenever Moffat/BBC does decide to release, it will be better than what they showed at SDCC.
Only 18 days till I can begin the fun part of the countdown, an episode a day!
I’ve also decided to add one thing that I’ll watch and review on Sunday August 11th, the Doctor Who Movie. I have seen it before just once, on a whim. I moved it to the top of my Netflix queue, I just have to watch and send back Breaking Bad at some point soon, I’ll get that one.
BBC did just announce today that the 50th will be broadcast at the same time worldwide! This news is both great and sucky at the same time. It’s awesome because I will not have to institute a personal “Facebook Ban” that I did this past spring, to remain unspoiled due to the Brits across the pond putting up spoilery pictures about each episode before its been aired here in ‘merica. The time that it airs is sucky because here in Wisconsin… it will air at 2pm in the afternoon on a Saturday.
I have yet to hear if my local geek/nerdy bar 42 Lounge will be open, I’m hoping they will throw a huge party, as the name of the bar is inspired by Douglas Adams whom wrote two series for the classics.. Pirate Planet and Shada. Life the Universe and Everything was supposed to be a Doctor Who story before it got switched up into a Hitchhiker’s story, and really there are too many crossovers between the two universes. See the Tardis Data Core for more awesome connections.
Still 18 days left. So near yet so far… it sucks being on the slow path sometimes.
