|Всегда в одном районе
||[May. 19th, 2013|01:33 pm]
Проснувшись на улице Дрезденской вчера у Гули с Юлей, получила приглашение к Лене с 5 детьми на проспект Художников. Для начала оказалось, что эти 2 волшебных места в соседних районах и ходит между ними 123 бас. А карта показывает ещё большую удачу: из чудесной регги-дредо-норки мне предстоит всего лишь получасовая сочная прогулка по лесо-парку Сосновке. И вот в одном ухе Solar Fileds, в другом - птицы поют, солнечные пруды, много деревьев. Новая грань Питера.
Дорогу спрашивала у интересной парочки около-пенсионного возраста. Раз спрашивала, потом ещё раз их встретила - уточняла, а на третий раз мы друг другу обрадовались, и Дама спрашивает меня: какой Вы знак зодиака? Лев - говорю. Ну понятно тогда, смеётся она )))
Ближе к ночи случай вконтакте сводит меня с Танденом, московским другом, которого не видела почти 2 года. Выясняем, что работает он временно сейчас в Питере на Петроградке, где я в основном обитаю. Уже хорошо. А дальше интереснее: карты гугла показывают нам, что в тот момент мы находимся в соседних дворах, даже дорогу переходить не надо... Пошли в ночи погуляли, обсудили кружева жизни, которые у обоих кружат да кружат, плетутся да вертятся...
|London's Strangest Tales by Tom Quinn: Book #25 for 2013
||[May. 19th, 2013|10:03 am]
London has a fascinating past, and this book compiles lots of bizarre facts stretching back about 1,000 years. The book tells of how the English often have some bizarre customs, and explains how they came into being in the first place.
Many of the stories are also about colourful characters who existed in London many years ago, and it seems like there were a lot of them - this includes a man who had a cart drawn by zebras and people who were hired as "human toilets" in medieval times (this is nothing like as gross as it sounds).
Overall, I liked the fact that the writer, Tom Quinn, had done a lot of research into obscure historical facts, and much of what I read in this book made me smile a lot as I read it.
|Doctor Who Episode 7x14: The Name of the Doctor
||[May. 19th, 2013|09:57 am]
|||||Biffy Clyro, "Opposite"||]|
Interesting title to this episode - I was inclined not to take it literally, like maybe it meant "doing things in the name of the Doctor", but the Doctor's name was referenced in this one.
The catchphrase, "I don't know where I am" got reused - this was from the first episode with the real version of Clara (not the copies that she created in this episode).
I suppose the fact that she was called PROFESSOR River Song should have given me a clue, but my first guess was that this was her between "The Time of Angels" and "Silence in the Library". This however was dead River Song, the version saved by David Tennant in the CAL programme.
John Hurt as "The Doctor" was a bit creepy, and raised a few questions. The Doctor said, "he's me - but he's not me", so is he a future (or even the next) incarnation of the Doctor? This could be a fakeout like "The Last Doctor", he could be some sort of manifestation like the "Dream Lord", or someone else who calls themselves "The Doctor". I read rumours that Matt Smith would leave at the end of the 50th anniversary special, so maybe it will end with him regenerating into John Hurt.
I have another theory that when the Doctor opened that door in "The God Complex", and said "Ah ... it's you", he saw John Hurt. The alternative was that it had something to do with the planet they were on or his own grave. It seems like both would scare The Doctor.
The whole montage with former Doctors was enjoyable - no Paul McGann or David Tennant though (I think Christopher Ecclestone popped up briefly); it was a bit weird because William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton's scenes had obviously been digitially coloured as they were originally in black and white.
The whole explanation for the other Claras was something I didn't expect - so she stepped into the Doctor's time stream and placed copies of herself all over the place - much like Rose spreading "Bad Wolf" all over the place back in series one.
The dying TARDIS was also very creepy - it was just so sinister! Also, Richard E Grant peeling himself and revealing nothing underneath was incredibly weird.
And it looked like they ended the episode with them still in the Doctor's time stream, so a proper cliffhanger.
