Nothing to Blog About

Except Doctor Who. So, I guess I'll post more soundtrack--and maybe a clip or two. If you don't think you'll like Doctor Who, still, listen to the soundtrack. 'Tis amazing.

First off, we'll start with The Doctor's Theme. Once you've seen certain episodes, this song becomes rather sad...

*sighs* So sad... We've watched all of the seasons, including half of six. The next episode in Season Six will be coming out in two days...

When Tennant (the Doctor with the trench coat, the picture in the theme song video is of him) regenerated (new actor came in, but since the Doctor's body was 'dying' he regenerated into a new body) it was extremely sad... he didn't want to go, for one, but he had to regenerate. I really liked him as the Doctor because he had a lot of emotion (well, not a LOT, but a good amount), and he was extremely thoughtful. One of his favorite phrases was, 'Allons-Y!' Meaning 'let's go' in French. He also liked to call things 'brilliant.' I still miss Tennant as the Doctor a lot.

We're now on Matt Smith, who we've been on for one and a half seasons now... He's funny and all, and good as the Doctor, but not amazing. He doesn't have quite as much emotion, and seems to like to joke about serious situations.

Matt Smith quotes:

"Bow-ties are cool."

"I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool." *is wearing a fez*

A few episodes later, *leans on the hood of a car* "I wear a Stetson now." *tips hat* "Stetsons are cool."

Just a few interesting quotes from Matt Smith. :) In the next video/music I'm going to post, he's the picture in it, though he looks a little weird... not like himself. His cheekbone seems more defined and... well, its hard to explain. I'll post a picture of him...

Okay, yeah, that IS a bit of a silly picture... but I couldn't resist. :) Here's a better one. Hope it looks a bit better...

Matt Smith isn't too bad, though...

Second video/music! This one, like I said, has Smith on it, even though he looks a bit weird... hopefully you see waht I mean. :)

Okay, and one more thing--sonic screwdrivers. I was looking over my shoulder when Manny and Jake were looking at Doctor Who things on Amazon for amusement. Well, apparently, they have a Doctor Who sonic screwdriveder--well, two, actually. One from the ninth and tenth Doctors (Tennant and Eccleston) which is blue, and a green one from Matt Smith. Here ya go, then I'll leave you alone with no more Doctor Who overload. :)

(Tennant's and Eccleston's blue screwdriver)

And here's one with Tennant in the picture. :)

And here's Matt Smith's screwdriver, green.

And another

Okay! I'll leave ya'll alone now. :)

Doctor Who Theme Song 2005 through 2007, by Murray Gold

This is my favorite of the theme songs--they're all the same tune, but there are differences between the theme songs. This one was used 2005 through 2007, and I think its the best of the three I've heard because its got both techno and orchestra, perfectly balanced. The newer one doesn't have enough orchestra, and the newest one doesn't have barely any. :P  It begins with the first part, until the tune changes a bit, when the techno goes away... after you listen you should know. It stops when that starts. That is what it ends the movie with. :)

So there you have it! I couldn't help but post it. :)

Doctor Who and Wood Polish/Cleaner

Let's start with the Wood Polish/Cleaner. Yes, I listed that second, but that's just me. Not organized at all. ;)

So, wood cleaner. Well, Jake was standing in front of me, I was on the couch in the dining room, which was there temporarily because of shampooing the carpets. Well, Jake was going to clean/polish the sidetable, and he asked if it was supposed to be oily like that. Well, he was spraying it at his cloth, but it spurted everywhere--and landed in my wide-open eye.

What happened next I hardly remember. I remember a fierce burning and rubbing (bad old me, couldn't help it) and somehow someone took my glasses and I stuck my face right under the stream of water coming from the sink faucet, and literally said, "MOM!! A CLOTH, I NEED A CLOTH, MOM!!!" over and over. Embarrassing, I admit, but really, I couldn't help it. The glob of cleaner had landed on my naked eye. O_o And as I tell it my eyes are watering...

It took fifteen/twenty minutes to get it all out, and then there was an occasional twinge every once in awhile. But I can see just fine, and my eye is no worse that it was before. :)

And Doctor Who? What about it? Ah, yes, EPIC!!!

Doctor who is like a Science Fiction series of a man called the Doctor who travels through time and space, A Time Lord who's whole planet had been destroyed, rescuing planets and attempting to crack ancient secrets, usually with the help of a companion. He's a brilliant, fantastic person who can sometimes talk too fast.

What sometimes throws people off is that its about aliens and such--but some of these aliens are more human than we are--except that they want to destroy or get something. As Jake said, Doctor Who is to Science Fiction as Lord of the Rings is to fantasy. If you're insane and have lost your mind, this movie is for you. ;)

If you ever watch this, START FROM SEASON ONE. There are a lot of things that happen in Season One that are vital for the rest. You MUST start at the beginning.

I am currently on Season Four, and loving it. :) Here are the companions, listed from best to worst.

Rose Tyler. Played by Billie Piper, I really liked her. She was there for... what, three seasons? Maybe just two... but she was my favorite, and I forever miss her. But there have been a few glimpses of her since then: **SPOILER** Donna (a companion) told her to tell someone, "That bin," because she was leaving car keys there. Well, when the girl turned around so we could see her face, it was Rose! Of course Donna didn't know that. Well, Rose watched her walk away, and then walked away herself, and disappeared into thin air. **SPOILER** **SPOILER** and also she was seen briefly on a screen when Donna was trying to get it to work. **SPOILER**

(Rose as well below)

Donna Noble. She's my second favorite, played by Catherine Tate. She is the companion that I'm on right now. Quite a spit-fire, bossy, and a bit loud, she has a hilarious personality. She also was in the Runaway Bride formerly, and came back as a companion later.

(Also Donna below)

Martha Jones. Played by Freema Agyeman, I really didn't like her. I don't know why. She was an African/British. She also sort of liked the Doctor, but she was just a friend to him. She eventually left voluntarily so that she could be with her family. I don't know why, but I really didn't like her.

(Martha below as well)

There's also Amy Pond, but I can't judge her since I haven't seen any episodes with her yet. Here's a picture of her anyways. :)

(Amy below as well)

And now for the Doctors! There are three different actors, but so far I've only seen two of them.

My favorite, Christopher Eccleston! He was the ninth doctor, counting the old doctors from the old versions of the movies.He is the first Doctor in these seasons. He was only there for one season, but he is still my favorite.

(Eccleston below too)

(Because he's my favorite, he gets a third picture. ^_^)

David Tennant. Brilliant, as he would say. :) He's hilarious and I love it when he figures things out and starts talking too fast to understand, like Eccleston did sometimes. :) He's got this way of looking at you, brows low, mouth partially open. And when he smiled, it was a full-toothed smile. XD He sometimes wears glasses, too. Here's a picture of that 'look':

(Tennant below as well)

And Matt Smith. He's the youngest of the actors for the Doctors, but I haven't seen any episodes with him yet, either. So here are a few pictures with him and his bow-tie. :)

(Smith below as well)

(Dunno who's in the background)

So! I have many favorite episodes--Blink, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, etc. Blink was epically fast and, as the Doctor said, "Don't even blink. Good luck." And then he blinked. 'Twas quite creepy, as if you blinked or turned your back, the weeping angels would go lightning fast. If they touched you, you went back in time and eventually died. :P It was mostly about Sally Sparrow.

The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances are truly creepy episodes... they're a two-parter. Manny joined Jake when he was at the Empty Child, and she got so freaked out that they stopped. Even Jake was scared. At this time, I hadn't seen any Doctor Who. Well, when Jake was gone, Manny and I decided to try it. We started it where she left off and watched on through the second part, The Doctor Dances. So I never did see the first half/three quarters of The Empty Child.

The Girl in the Fireplace was just... EPIC. There are far more that I can't remember the names of.

All in all, I love Doctor Who. If you like Science Fiction, there's a pretty big chance that you will like this. Its both grim and serious with hilarious things stuck in there. Not cheesy hilarious, but truly funny.

Notice, each Doctor had they're own coat and style. :) Eccleston with his leather coat, Tennant with his brown trench-coat with the split coat-tails, and Matt Smith with his (is it tweed?) coat and bow-tie.

There are a few inappropriate references, but only mentions, and nothing truly bad, and not very often. That is one thing to watch out for.

And now I feel like drawing them all... >_>
