About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

This isn't the tumblr you're looking for.

Move along.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

TEGAN: I know the Tardis is huge, but it can’t be taking them this long, surely. What’s a Zero Room anyway? The Doctor said something about null interfaces. 
NYSSA: I suppose it’s some sort of neutral environment. An isolated space cut off from the rest of the universe. 
TEGAN: He should’ve told me that’s what he wanted. I could’ve shown him Brisbane.

Just watching Castrovalva (30 years after I watched it for the first time), and apart from getting all of the references to previous companions, this exchange had me ROTFLMFAO. And yes, I’m watching this in Brisbane ;P

Tonight I’m Frakking You

I think my favourite bit (apart from Kunal Nayyar’s brilliant rap) is Richard Hatch’s cameo.

Damn, this is all my geek dreams come true! Wonder Woman, Spock, Darth Vader, Spiderman, Pacman (or his wife, I’m not too sure about that one) … and heaps more!

Sing along!

I’m like Kenobi
Seeking passage to Alderaan with you
We’ll watch Big Bang Theory
As you ride my TARDIS and call me Doctor Who

You’re into Cosplay (oooh)
Damn that’s one fine skin job on you.
Beam Me Up Hottie (oooo oooh)
My Vulcan Logic tells me its time to groove

Across the federation
My Jedi inclination
Tells me that I am a suitable mate for you
We Love Next Generation
Xbox over Playstation
Its time that I tap from your Mana Pool

Cause tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know
That tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know
Are You Gwen Stacey
My Spidey sense says I’d shoot my web all on you
I’m No Fergengi
I drop more coin than Mario on mushrooms

Your Dharma education
Delorean transporation
Revs my engine to warp speed like Mr. Sulu
Dollhouse’s cancellation 
Hurt like Luke’s amputation
Its time to Mork Me and say Nanoo Nanoo

Cause tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know
That tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know

Ha! Kunal…
Let’s Meet Up In Naboo
We’ll roll around like R2-D2
You’ve set my phasers to stun
Cause your Sarlaac Pit’s
Got more spice in it
Than the planet Dune

From Asgard’s
Hallowed halls
Everybody big bangs Kunal
Gotham or Hogwarts
My Broad Sword’ll Be the one
Thing To Rule them all
Lets clone your body
Join them all together to form a Guild
and go on a Quest
We can use my expansion pack
Then I’ll take you down like Boba Fett
Up Up, Down Down
Left, Right, Left Right
B, A, Select then Start
Its time to one-up
Thirty lives with you, (cuz tonight I’m)

Cuz tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know
That tonight I’m Frakking You
Whoa you know
That tonight I’m Frakking You

I loved The Black Hole as a kid, and I’m not ashamed to say it. Well, I was back then, but not now!

They're made out of Meat, by Terry Bisson

  • "They're made out of meat."
  • "Meat?"
  • "Meat. They're made out of meat."
  • "Meat?"
  • "There's no doubt about it. We picked several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."
  • "That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars."
  • "They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."
  • "So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."
  • "They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."
  • "That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."
  • "I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in the sector and they're made out of meat."
  • "Maybe they're like the Orfolei. You know, a carbon-based intelligence that goes through a meat stage."
  • "Nope. They're born meat and they die meat. We studied them for several of their life spans, which didn't take too long. Do you have any idea the life span of meat?"
  • "Spare me. Okay, maybe they're only part meat. You know, like the Weddilei. A meat head with an electron plasma brain inside."
  • "Nope. We thought of that, since they do have meat heads like the Weddilei. But I told you, we probed them. They're meat all the way through."
  • "No brain?"
  • "Oh, there is a brain all right. It's just that the brain is made out of meat!"
  • "So... what does the thinking?"
  • "You're not understanding, are you? The brain does the thinking. The meat."
  • "Thinking meat! You're asking me to believe in thinking meat!"
  • "Yes, thinking meat! Conscious meat! Loving meat. Dreaming meat. The meat is the whole deal! Are you getting the picture?"
  • "Omigod. You're serious then. They're made out of meat."
  • "Finally, Yes. They are indeed made out meat. And they've been trying to get in touch with us for almost a hundred of their years."
  • "So what does the meat have in mind?"
  • "First it wants to talk to us. Then I imagine it wants to explore the universe, contact other sentients, swap ideas and information. The usual."
  • "We're supposed to talk to meat?"
  • "That's the idea. That's the message they're sending out by radio. 'Hello. Anyone out there? Anyone home?' That sort of thing."
  • "They actually do talk, then. They use words, ideas, concepts?"
  • "Oh, yes. Except they do it with meat."
  • "I thought you just told me they used radio."
  • "They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat."
  • "Omigod. Singing meat. This is altogether too much. So what do you advise?"
  • "Officially or unofficially?"
  • "Both."
  • "Officially, we are required to contact, welcome, and log in any and all sentient races or multibeings in the quadrant, without prejudice, fear, or favor. Unofficially, I advise that we erase the records and forget the whole thing."
  • "I was hoping you would say that."
  • "It seems harsh, but there is a limit. Do we really want to make contact with meat?"
  • "I agree one hundred percent. What's there to say?" `Hello, meat. How's it going?' But will this work? How many planets are we dealing with here?"
  • "Just one. They can travel to other planets in special meat containers, but they can't live on them. And being meat, they only travel through C space. Which limits them to the speed of light and makes the possibility of their ever making contact pretty slim. Infinitesimal, in fact."
  • "So we just pretend there's no one home in the universe."
  • "That's it."
  • "Cruel. But you said it yourself, who wants to meet meat? And the ones who have been aboard our vessels, the ones you have probed? You're sure they won't remember?"
  • "They'll be considered crackpots if they do. We went into their heads and smoothed out their meat so that we're just a dream to them."
  • "A dream to meat! How strangely appropriate, that we should be meat's dream."
  • "And we can mark this sector unoccupied."
  • "Good. Agreed, officially and unofficially. Case closed. Any others? Anyone interesting on that side of the galaxy?"
  • "Yes, a rather shy but sweet hydrogen core cluster intelligence in a class nine star in G445 zone. Was in contact two galactic rotations ago, wants to be friendly again."
  • "They always come around."
  • "And why not? Imagine how unbearably, how unutterably cold the universe would be if one were all alone."
