HAPPY NEW YEAR! ♥
John Barrowman putting together and riding an adult Big Wheel.
Because he can.
Woah. Woah. Woah.
… adult big wheels are a thing?!
on the one hand, it’s important not to participate too totally in romantic idealizations of childhood, besides which you can’t go home again, those days are gone forever etc, besides which the inherent rewards of adulthood are considerable, etc
on the other hand, now when you hear “Picture Me Rollin’” playing way too loud in downtown Durham from a block away you’re gonna have to realize that that’s JD on his adult big wheel and he has brought the party once again
That would go straight into my car.
When I tell people that Eleven is my favorite Doctor, people automatically assume that I like him because he’s silly and quirky, while in reality, those traits have very little to do with why I like him.
Eleven’s comical moments are great, but that’s not what makes him stand out to me.
What gets to me about Matt Smith’s portrayal of the Doctor is the way he is able to convey other emotions. This is a character who is wounded and scarred by a thousand years worth of heartbreak, plagued with everlasting guilt, haunted by loneliness and the people he has lost. A man filled with enough hatred and loathing to make even the most fearsome of enemies think twice about crossing him. Underneath Eleven’s carefree exterior, there is a broken, vulnerable, and often terrifying version of the Doctor just waiting to emerge. With just a single look, Matt Smith is able to effectively capture all of the complex emotions that are running through his character’s mind. He can go from looking like a cosmic nine year old to an ageless god in a fraction of a second. Matt Smith’s acting reminds us of just how little we actually know about the Doctor. He spends most of his time screen acting childish and just plan ridiculous, so that when the hidden side of his character does come out, it’s enough to give you chills.
To me, Matt does a near perfect job at embodying everything that the Doctor is, both good and bad.
Thank you, Matt Smith. You’re great.
commence slow clapping…
My aunt knitted me the 4th Doctor’s scarf and I just….I want to wear it everywhere I go, but wearing a 12 foot scarf in the summer time in Virginia isn’t probably a wise decision…
…Doesn’t mean I won’t. It just probably isn’t my best decision…
Doesn’t mean I won’t
