I feel like there’s not much to screen shot yet (the drama has yet to start)

but Luis’ intense mixing face made me laugh

I  dare you to do it until the meal comes.

Here is a picture of my birthday swag, and also the artwork my friend drew of me as Thor.

Hello! It’s my birthday. Happy birthday me. I am now 25 btw. And I’m staying away from tumblr for it because I haven’t watched Doctor Who yet.

"Because the show is in a lot of ways about labels, Kieren is called a lot of things: a Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferer, The First Risen, an Angel of Heaven, a Rotter, a Dead ‘Un. There are all these labels that people put on him, and it’s the same in life as well. People like to put others in boxes. So I kind of wanted Kieren’s sexuality to be that he falls in love with the person. Obviously he’s attracted to men, I think he’s attracted to women too. He’s attracted to their personality, and I quite like that, rather than “oh yes, he’s a gay zombie”. I didn’t want it to be a big deal. I know a lot of shows that deal with these sorts of issues; they make it the centrepiece of the character, that’s their only facet. It’s only once facet of Kieren, he’s got bigger fish to fry. There are bigger issues at hand than dealing with his sexuality. He’s quite comfortable with that, it’s being a zombie that he has trouble with."

Some of you know this already, but earlier this month, I got the chance to interview Dominic Mitchell. He is a lovely, LOVELY man. We chatted for an hour about the show, including discussions of:

  • a third series
  • representations of sexuality, mental health, religion and right wing politics
  • the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign
  • advice for new writers
  • what happens to Amy
  • many other things!

And because I’m from Lancashire too, we had a bit of a chat about Lancashire and Roarton, which was fun!

Anyway, you can read the interview HERE and it would be really awesome if you guys could all comment on it, because the link is being sent to Dominic and I’d love for him to see the responses to it!



Vin Diesel does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Okay, Vin Diesel wins the Ice Bucket Challenge. (And I totally want to plant a tree for Groot.)

The Westboro Baptist Church is an American church who have become famous for their ‘God hates fags’ slogans, and picketing of high profile funerals. This week they called Robin Williams a ‘fag lover’, and threatened to picket his funeral over his debauched and hedonistic ways. Alright. I don’t think this is okay, for a number of reasons. – Adam Hills [ x ]
