Watch out, Europe

August 21, 2009 § 4 Comments

Watched ‘The Producers’ last night, and by god, is that movie offensive. To everyone. Men, women, gay people, straight people, Americans, Germans, Swedes, dove breeders… it’s crazy! Mel Brooks must have sat down with a list of the most offensive things he could come up with and just ticked them off one by one.

I loved it. Friggin’ brilliant. Two hours of complete and utter tastelessness. It was great. My enthusiasm might have something to do with the fact that it was 3.30 when I finished, but… oh man. Plus the songs are really catchy, which can also be a drawback. Since I’m a person who is likely to randomly burst into song, and it’s kinda bad if that song is ‘Springtime for Hitler’.

Anyway, I’m basically posting to complain about the internet – doesn’t work in my room at all since last night, I’m in my sister’s room right now, and it’s SLOOOOOW.

But also, my geekery has made it onto my shopping list:



I’m amazed at how well the Dalek came out. It was just a quick sketch to show my Grandma what my washclothes looked like, but… it looks pretty good for something that took me all of thirty seconds to get to paper.

Off now, watching the music bits of the Master episodes (‘Here – come – the drums!’ HERE COME THE DRUMS HERE COME THE DRUMS and the bit with ‘I can’t decide’ by the Scissor Sisters) to get that Springtime song out of my ear.

By the way, knitting TARDIS socks. Socks that have the pattern from the Tardis dishcloth on the front. Quite pretty, that. Almost done with the first one.

  • Zomg, Tardis socks? Yus.

    I’m about to watch Blink, and I remember your saying that it scared the crap out of you… So… I’ll watch it when I get back :S.

    Tootles, and have fun with your Doctor Who geekery!

    Oh, have you seen the Friday Night Project? It’s a show that the BBC does, and it has a ton of guest hosts, like David Tennant. I watched him on the show, and will never be able to take him seriously again. It was such a laugh!

    oh god, FNP is one of the funniest things ever. Seriously. Both of DT’s episodes, and John Barrowman’s too. Did you watch David’s ep where they read him the Who porn? His face was absolutely priceless…

    Seriously though, you took DT seriously? I mean, he’s a great actor and all that, but the way he plays the Doctor doesn’t necessarily lend itself to being taken completely seriously. Seriously. ‘This is my timey-wimey detector. Goes ding when there’s stuff’ is not an explanation of ANYTHING I could take seriously. By anybody.

    But yeah, don’t watch Blink when it’s dark. Or when you’re about to sleep. Fucking scary.

    First TARDIS sock is done except for grafting, I’ll put photos online soonish!

  • I nearly died each time I watched it! Catherine Tate and Billie Piper’s episodes aren’t as good, but are still pretty funny. I love the Topical Barometer.

    Weeeeerrrl, it’s making it hard for me to watch Doctor who without remembering Teninch, which makes me laugh hysterically for a while. ;)

    I’ll watch Blink in the daytime, then.

  • wollphilie says:

    lol, I knew about Teninch long before watching that, but, despite only having a vaguely passing interest in man-tackle, I’ve since then learned it’s probably wistful thinking XD
