The yay of the day.
-Link courtesy of lurkingwombat: The Hitchhiker's Guide to DALEKS Which has been up for a year and a half and this is the first I've heard of it. If you know what a Dalek is, go watch this immediately, whether you are familiar with the Hitchhiker's Guide or not.

-Courtesy of upgrading my cable to digital, I now have access to the CW again. Actually, I have access to the CW on four different stations, two of which seem to be airing in Eastern Time. Come next season, unless I'm horribly wrong (or more likely stuck at work), I'll be able to watch the new Supernatural episodes simultaneously with the East Coasters. Which is kind of nifty, even though it's doubtful it will really make any difference in when I get to watch it. :-)

Thanks for the rec. That has made me very happy. And slightly more well-informed.

The things that fans create amazes the heck out of me. :-)

Oh, that guide to Daleks is just perfect! Very Douglas Adams.

YouTube holds much awesomeness.

YouTube is indeed a fantastic thing. :-D

Tell me about it! I spent the morning watching the Fellowship of the vuvuzela over and over again, cracking up every time. "You. Shall. Not. Play!" Oh, Gandalf.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: June 19th, 2010 10:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
So that's what a vuvuzela is. Never let it be said that the internet is not educational. XD
schweedie From: schweedie Date: June 19th, 2010 10:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, that's the now infamous vuvuzela, the plastic horn that football fans all over the world are currently raging against. I despise the sound of it, but the graphics and videos people are creating around it are brilliant!

...Yeah, that's how I learnt what a vuvuzela is too. :DDD

Yays for the Eastern time zone access! You never know, CK - you might be home sick on a Friday, or have a day off, and...there ya go! SPN at 6 p.m.

And, getting it on 4 different channels - that might be helpful if one of them decides to air sports. Could be well worth the extra cost on your cable bill.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: June 19th, 2010 09:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heh, odds are it will only happen when there's no new-run episode on. I do think I'm going to need to get a lot more done during the week now so I don't have to stay til 9pm Fridays tidying up all the loose ends everyone dumps on me at the last minute.

And, getting it on 4 different channels - that might be helpful if one of them decides to air sports.

It's going to be tricky to program the VCR for that though. I'm getting New York, and... Chicago I think? Do either of those have notably fewer preemptions? Worst case, I'll set it for KSTW at 9, They're the CW network I had access to before out of Seattle and I don't recall them ever having a sports preemption.

HAH!!!!!! That was brilliant!! And so in the style of THHGTTG! I remember watching the last ep of the TV series about thirty times when I was ten and we'd just got our first video recorder and I was off school with chicken pox! ("How many escape capsules are there?" "None." "Have you counted them?" "Yeah, twice."!!!)

And yes! You have the CW again! I read somewhere about SN being shown on another channel in Canada... hold on let me find the reference... CHCH (??) now that Sun TV isn't showing it.

It's amazing, isn't it!

I think they might only be available in Ontario, but it was past time for me to switch to digital anyway. :-P

that was _awesome_ :D

....and now I've spent the last 3 hours wandering through re-igniting that crush on David Tennant.... :D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: June 19th, 2010 10:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did the exact same thing! Did you watch the 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' thing he hosted?

Also, uh, I've kind of been doing a slow marathon of TenDoc episodes. I went to rewatch 'End of Time' a couple weeks ago, but chickened out and re-watched 'Christmas Invasion' instead and have been slowly going through them all since then. I've got to find the tape with '42' on it before I can continue though.
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: June 20th, 2010 04:39 am (UTC) (Link)
:D

I hadn't watched 'Buzzcocks' until then.... :D

....heck, now I want to watch all the Ten episodes again too....and also Nine (I do love Christopher Eccleston). And possibly Blackpool. And Casanova (you've seen that, yes?). And Hamlet.

or perhaps just listen to a loop tape of Tennant using his Scottish accent.... *melty brain* *ahem* sorry, got a little distracted there....

Tennant really is awfully good though, isn't he?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: June 20th, 2010 04:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Haven't seen Casanova yet, but the bits I have seen make me giggle uncontrollably.

or perhaps just listen to a loop tape of Tennant using his Scottish accent.... *melty brain* *ahem* sorry, got a little distracted there....

Well... I don't know if he does them in his natural accent, but I've heard he's done some audiobooks...
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: June 20th, 2010 05:50 am (UTC) (Link)
you haven't seen Casanova yet?!?!

that is SO on the list for next time. SO on the list. *is tempted to drive there right now and require you to watch it but is restraining self*

If he has done audiobooks in his natural accent....well, actually it depemds what the books are :D I may have to let someone else know though.... :)

Ha! I'll see if it can be tracked down then.

Here's a list of seven titles; it seems to be all Doctor Who, so probably not in his natural accent, but still.
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: June 20th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Casanova - no need to track down, I have it :D

still, I will pass the list on to someone who will, I suspct, be thrilled :) thanks!

It was brilliant--and all of us screamed to send it to you;) Also yay for having digital!! Gives you an option if you can see it earlier:)I have been re-watching Who from season one on Space lately because I am obsessed:P

Hugs

Re-watching seems to be in the air. I've been doing a slow TenDoc marathon for a few weeks now. Need to find the tape with '42' on it. :-)

Teehee, I love that video! :D Fen are so genius sometimes.

Absolutely!

HOMG BEING A FAN OF BOTH DALEKS DOCTOR WHO AND HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE I LOVED THAT BEYOND ALL REASON.

Also, congrats on the new Supernatural access! :D
