—Doctor Who Theme
New Doctor Who theme alterations for the 12th Doctor revealed.
This is why I gave up on this show. I used to sit down on the bed and watch the old Doctor Who on T.V. with little brother and sister and my Mum. We used to absolutely love it. When the new Doctors showed up, still good! Really good. Then things started getting ridiculously mental and childish and stupid a little while after 11 showed up (don’t get me wrong, he’s a brilliant actor, and I don’t blame him for anything), and now the show had just fucking gone downhill. Please don’t tell me this is actual music for the new Doctor. Please just tell me it’s not. Jesus fucking Christ this show has been butchered.
human life is incredible
I hate the excessive need to “modernize” everything in TV. It’s like, this wouldn’t be so bad if they actually made it still feel sci-fi, but now it’s this weird new-age bullshit, like they’re trying too hard to be “progressive”. I know I’m making a big deal out of a THEME SONG maybe, but thing is, they’ll probably end up carrying this ideology into the series itself. Where the fuck are things going.
it keeps happening
Sometimes, I fucking hate Steven Moffat for what he’s done to Doctor Who. Look, I know I’m fairly new to the show-having only come in during Matt Smith’s first season, but I went back and watched every episode of the old series and Moffat has just completely altered the tone. He’s trying to make it his own creation, which is fucking despicable, to mess with something as perfect as Doctor Who. I know it’s just a theme song, and I know the difference isn’t that drastic, but it fucking sickens me sometimes.
never forget my legacy
Nah I think the people disagreeing with this move are right, like, this is a really weird and unnecessary departure from the iconic theme, and sure it matches the new mood of the show really well, so I can see were the owners of the show are coming from with the change, but honestly sometimes you have to accept that nostalgia actually matters, and even if you’re taking the show in a different direction Doctor Who is not Doctor Who without the Doctor Who *theme*, I mean it founded electronic music for gods sake! The only thing I would say about this one is it sounds a little dated like it’s a MIDI file but then again so does the very first Doctor Who theme so I imagine after one season or so with Capaldi as 12 (which I’m really looking forward to!) they will do a cooler remix of it like they did with the original theme, and once it’s been around for a while I think people will have got used to it and they’ll like it alot more.
If you’re like me and you read all the notes before actually listening it’s a million times funnier
Read the passionate comments first THEN listen to the new Doctor Who theme they’re discussing.
…I can’t. I had to share this. This is just such a powerful song.
I wrote something to post on facebook, for the people who know me in the real world. I just wanted to post this here for the people who dont really know me, but follow here, hope it explains some stuff (that you probably didnt know or care about) Will hopefully get back to posting nonsense soon enough ;)
Been meaning to write something like this for a while (and yet its still a rambling mess, I know, tell me about it) but have convinced myself not to countless times.
I’m sure whether you know me well or only casually you might have noticed I’ve been a little off over the past while (okay a year or two is not a while) So this note is to explain, and maybe excuse my distance, but mainly just explain it… I’m not a miracle worker.
In April 2011 I stood up from my computer to get a drink (when I relay this story to those who I have told it’s to make tea but I suspect I might actually have been a generic off brand cola…. at 11 in the morning???? How decadent!) And noticed something was wrong, I didn’t know what was wrong, but something was up with my vision.
It was only when I went outside that I realised that when I looked left I was getting double vision. I chocked it up to my new glasses, or a result of staring at a computer screen for too long. I gave myself the day off, and took it easy. The next day the eye had not returned to normal, so I took that day off too. Day three I decided to take my issues to the real culprit, Specsavers, they must have given me a crappy prescription.
In Specsavers they looked a little worried and sent me up to the eye and ear. (I’m going to cut out some boring details here, because its a long story and need to keep room for digressions like this) So a month later I’m spending two weeks in hospital, I don’t feel sick and I’m in the neurology ward where I’m the youngest by about 50 years. Loads of blood tests, scans and a horrible spinal tap later (its terrible) they concluded I’ve a small lesion on my brain stem where the optic nerve connects which is causing the problems.
I’m given a treatment with steroids and the eye gets a lot better and I’m sent on my way. I’ve to report back every few months for check up scans. So for the next year and a half I’m getting MRIs every few months (I’m a pro at this stage). Then a few months ago I was told that the lesion had actually grown a little which would point to it actually being a tumor.
Its a very small tumor at the moment, but its in a very sensitive area, to even get a proper diagnosis would require a biopsy that would have a 7% chance of killing me. (love how specific that percentage is) But it is small, which is good, and because I’m not showing new symptoms the doctors want to just keep monitoring it rather than go after it and cause more damage. Which just means a lot more uncertainty, sitting and waiting, getting on with it.
But I’ve been dealing with uncertainty since day one with this, and I’ve gotten really good at avoiding dwelling on it too much. But as a side effect, I’ve kind of gotten really good at avoiding a lot of you awesome people. Which SUCKS! I don’t want to have to explain my sitch (situation eh) to everyone I meet, and I don’t like to hide it either. And its mainly why I’m writing this now. I miss a lot of you, and I don’t want to be afraid to say hi, or hang out or anything.
I don’t really know what I want to get out of telling this here. You don’t need to message me, or comment, or even click like. I guess the big thing for me is that I’ve said it and put it out there, do with it what you will (also if you’ve read this far well done, if you gave up reading before this you’re missing some very reflexive asides) . I just needed to quit carrying this around with me and let it out. I feel good having written this, and will feel even better when I click “enter and get it out there.
This might not mean much if you’re not reading Saga (why aren’t you again?), but this is in the running for my favorite page in any comic ever.
