It's true. You don't. (Of course, having a very long scarf hanging in your closet to remind you helps.)
My pal Nick is off tonight on a 10-month journey around Eastern Europe and Asia, and he's set up a special travel-log to keep us posted. I am sooooo jealous.

Tricked out Dreamliner 787VIPs
: If I had one, I would totally
make it look like the inside of the TARDIS.
I don't know. If I ever saw a penis that looked like that, I'd run in the other direction.

Reverse the polarity of the…oh, nevermind
Oh dear. A brilliant and dead-on lexicon for those of us without lives. The Doctor Who Fan's Phrasebook
“That bit was completely ripped-off from Star Wars.”
I believe that the world began in 1977.
“That bit was completely ripped-off from Buffy.”
It's a little known fact that Joss Whedon actually invented not only television, but also the Internet.
“I think James Marsters would be a brilliant choice for the next Doctor.”
I am twelve and have only ever seen one other television show in my life.

Death Comes to Time
MOVED: Last December
, I enthused about Nick's Friggin' Homepage
, one cutie's website chock full of linky goodness. Nick's in a new place
these days, and has made a rather appealing promise that may hasten my return to Los Angeles.
Someone is shopping a "half-hour reality make-over show" called "The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"
. The premise is that some poor straight schlub gets redecorated by five representatives of the fabulous set, to wit:
The half-hour show assembles an elite team of professionals from the worlds of fashion, interior design, grooming, food and wine and culture and mercilessly throws them upon a straight male subject in need of a makeover. Combining the relevance and substance of Esquire Magazine with the wit and sarcasm of "Will & Grace," "The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" is informative, entertaining and bitingly hip.
There are a few problems with this pitch, kids, not least of which is that using the word "wit" alongside "Will & Grade" should be a punishable offense. I really chuckled at the last line in the casting breakdown, though: "Queer yes, camp not necessarily: Professionals first, gay second. Not looking to fill stereotypes ...". "This," he said cynically, "I shall believe when I see." [hat tip to Matt Kingston]
DEATH COMES TO TIME:
I was a huge Doctor Who
fan for years, so much so that I'd spend Sunday nights sitting close to the TV, fiddling with the antenna, trying to pull in a snowy signal from a public television station broadcasting from 100 miles away. I joined a fan club
. I went to conventions
. You name it, I've been there, done that, got the scarf
(and the frock coat and the fedora and a lot of badges). The obsession has faded for me, supplanted by a dozen other media fascinations and hobbies, but I was still saddened to hear of the recent death of John Nathan-Turner
, the program's longest-serving producer, famed for his Hawaiian shirts and his jovial demeanor with fans.
