When I saw the Precolumbian piece “Standing Warrior with Club” at the Detroit Institute of Arts, I immediately thought of the Sontorans from Doctor Who. Do you see the resemblance, too?
“Good men don’t need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many.”
“In nine hundred years of time and space I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important.”
I wish the Doctor would visit me on Christmas Eve!
In the spring of 2009, National Geographic ran the pilot of “Garbage Moguls,” a show about TerraCycle, in conjunction with Earth Week. This happened right after Tom Szaky visited IC, and I was so excited. Since then, I’ve become a huge TerraCycle fan, perhaps even slightly obssessed!
I am just as excited now that National Geographic has annouced three new episodes of Garbage Moguls will air this Fall! The episodes air back-to-back this Saturday, 8/21 – (8 p.m. – 11 p.m. EST, but check your local listings to confirm). TerraCycle employees will be tweeting live – use the tag #garbagemoguls to participate. Visit their facebook site for a triva game they’re hosting during the show.
Here’s a flyer with all the details.
It’s a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool.
· The Doctor: I thought you might be in trouble.
Craig: Thanks. Oh, if I ever am, you can come and save me with my toothbrush.
Today’s Doctor Who-ism is really just an excuse to have a photo of shirtless Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, on my blog! This episode, the eleventh of the fifth series, has the Doctor impersonating a human to find out what is going on in the apartment above Craig’s. His undercover work has him posing as Craig’s flatmate, and, to protect himself from the unknown upstairs, he cannot use his sonic screwdriver or any alien technology. I found the episode hilarious as the Doctor really doesn’t blend into daily life well! It’s not as obvious as some aliens exposed to earth scenarios (e.g., Data on Star Trek Next Generation), but just as satisfying! I loved watching him cook…play soccer…go to work! Another amazing episode.
