Hey everyone, just got back from vacation so I'm just regaining my equilibrium. No time for super-involved posts today so I decided to do another WWW Wednesday. What are you currently reading? As usual, I am reading 3 books at once ....Okay, more like 4, but let's keep this brief. No summary because it's pretty… Continue reading WWW Wednesday May 25, 2022
Spoilers: I know this book is over a hundred years old, but, you know, whatever. I will admit I went into this novella not expecting much. Based on some of the spoiler-light commentary I read on this novella, I was expecting there to be a lot of pseudo-psychological mumbo-jumbo and pretentious navel-gazing. ....Buuuuuut the audiobook… Continue reading Thoughts on “Metamorphosis” by Franz Kafka
WARNING: SPOILER ALERT FOR DOCTOR WHO SERIES 12 FINALE EPISODE. I know I said I was done with Who but I promise this isn't just another reason to rag on the series 12 finale and why The Timeless Children is undoubtedly the most insulting episode to anyone that cares about Doctor Who and its history.

****Warning: The following contains spoilers for Jodie Whittaker's run of Doctor Who. Reader discretion is advised**** A couple of years ago, I wrote a series of posts where I pontificated on the possibility of a female Doctor and, while I understood the backlash surrounding the character's gender swap, I considered it the show's only possible… Continue reading Doctor Who The Hell Cares Anymore
SPOILER ALERT FOR SEASON FIVE OF BLACK MIRROR I consider Black Mirror to be one of the greatest sci-fi shows ever made. Its portrayal of the effect technology has on the human psyche has made for some of the most insightful and realistic stories I have ever come across.

I heard it would be helmed by Jordan Peele so it was in competent hands. Unlike many writers of political satire in the post-modern age,… Continue reading The Twilight Zone: “The Comedian” Review

THE DOCTOR WILL FINALLY BE GINGER!!! I thought this would be the main topic of discussion when it came to his potential role.… Continue reading Kris Marshall is The Doctor?
Conventional wisdom says that you're supposed to write what you know. However, I have decided to go the harder route and try writing what I don't know. Why am I trying to carry out this obviously horrible idea? Because if I never try anything new, every single protagonist I write will be an introverted middle-class… Continue reading How I’m Writing What I Don’t Know
Unless you've given up on Doctor Who and unliked all the DW-related Facebook pages as I should have done long ago, you've likely heard everyone screaming from the ether: THE NEXT DOCTOR HAS TO BE A WOMAN!! Now in the past, my opinion on a female playing The Doctor has been- However, now that Moffat… Continue reading Should the 13th Doctor be a Woman?
As crappy as it is that Peter didn't get a fair shake at being The Doctor, this decision to leave is for the show's benefit. Doctor Who has been in dire need of a direction change for years now and I think it would really benefit from a clean slate. Many people are complaining that… Continue reading Opinion: Peter Capaldi is Leaving Doctor Who and That’s a Good Thing
