Stephen Furst has passed away, due to complications from diabetes. He was 63.

From his offical Facebook page:

"To truly honor him, do not cry for the loss of Stephen Furst. But rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now. [...] And no matter who you are, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh - really, really hard."

So I'm watching one of my Leverage comfort eps, The Last Dam Job*.  Nate reminds the idiot who's been causing them so much grief, "Remember when I said next time we met, I wouldn't be so nice?  Welcome to the next time."  And I really want to write something called "Welcome to the next time."  I just don't know what fandom.  Ideas?  What can I say, I want to burn things to the ground, due to more family stupid/drama, so maybe not Leverage.

::amused:: Doesn't mean i can't write Leverage.  I mean, I can think of ideas.  Eh.  Fandoms?  I don't know enough Welcome to Night Vale for that, which is a pity, but you know, any fandom that has fights and destructions... toss it at me.  :;amused:: I can always do '5 sentences.'

* -- What?  Cha0s gets thrown in a river and tased.  What's not to love?

Okay, I've been meaning to post these for weeks now but Real Life (TM) keeps getting in the way, and instead I've just spent my evenings watching random stuff on Youtube.

(One of the benefits of having a new fandom is getting all these new things to look at online -- it's like discovering a whole new internet! My current playlist consists of con panels that include Michelle Gomez, because she is the best and I want to marry her. No, seriously, you have to watch this Q&A from last year, it's absolutely hilarious (this one with her, Capaldi and Coleman is also good, with added bonus of Capaldi doing an impression of a dalek and revealing that he watches fanvids (but doesn't read fanfic because "rude things happen in them"))

I'm all caught up with the show now (and by all caught up, I mean up to "Lie of the Land", because the next episode only airs here tomorrow DON'T SPOIL ME), and I meant to post my notes about the next three episodes as well, but I haven't had the brain to do it yet so here are just some random thoughts about "Knock, Knock" and "Oxygene".

But first, on a more general note: I've been trying to figure out what it was that suddenly this season turned me from a casual watcher to an actual fan. The last season was the first Moffat season that I can honestly say that I enjoyed, Capaldi finally made me like the Doctor (if you've read my previous Doctor Who posts, you may remember that I really, really, really didn't like the Doctor before and have been watching the show all these years despite of him rather than because of him), and I think the last three episodes of series 9 were among the best episodes of all of new!Who (in fact, I'd probably put "Heaven Sent" on my Top 10 list of favourite episodes of anything, ever), but for some reason it wasn't until this season that something just suddenly changed, like a switch being turned. And I think I now know what it was: Pearl Mackie. Because I came across an old post I'd made where I wrote that I think that Moffatt is a much better writer than RTD, but his era has lacked the heart that RTD's had, and I think that it was Bill (and her relationship with the Doctor) that finally gave the show the heart that it needed.


Knock Knock )

Oxygen )

Also, since I now officially consider myself a fan of the show, does anyone have any fic recs?

I had a look at AO3 and so. much. bad porn and AUs. I'm just not used to navigating active megafandoms.

Twelve-era only, please, because I still don't like the Doctor in his other incarnations (and yes, I did try to watch an Eleven-era episode in case I'd retroactively started liking all Doctors, but nope). And preferably gen, because I tried to read a smutty fic and realised that apparently I subscribe to the Doctor-is-asexual school of thought. Doctor/River is OK, though, because I liked their interaction in "The Husbands of River Song", although I still don't really understand why they're married or even when they fell in love (I think I've mentioned that I wasn't really paying attention to things during Eleven's era).

([personal profile] elisi, do you want to explain to me why I should be shipping River/Doctor?)

(Sidenote: why is Twelve/Clara called whoffauldi? I mean, I get the "who-" and the "-ldi", but where does the rest come from?)

Rest In Peace, Adam West

Adam West has passed away at the age of 88, following a battle with leukemia. May he rest in peace. He will be deeply missed. I absolutely loved the 60’s version of Batman so much when I was little and it was in reruns on The Family Channel. It should be on Me-TV sometime tonight. It was always great to see him pop up on other shows or films.

For MST3K fans, he was also in Zombie Nightmare and hosted Comedy Central’s 1994 MST3K Turkey Day Marathon. I remember he was also the principal on The Adventures of Pete And Pete.

(As I don’t have any icons of the Adam West version of Batman, have an icon of Batman and Wonder Woman holding hands.)
