I was going to have some gag about trivial things in the subject line, but it was too cheesy - Eldritch Lacemaking and other Randomness

09:09 pm - I was going to have some gag about trivial things in the subject line, but it was too cheesy
Went to the Wonderful Day fundraiser Trivia Night thing last night (Wonderful Day being the production some of my friends, and a bunch of people I don't know will be doing in a couple of weeks). Anyhoo, I was on a table with saikogrrl and Yuhan and... some people I don't really know. But GGS (aka Gratuitous Gay Subtext aka our team name - what do you expect considering the people involved?) managed to tie for first in the questions. Lost out on the tie-breaker, though.

Still, I got half a kilo of chocolate coated coffee beans out of it, so I say it was a worthwhile night.

Lots of fun, too.

Apparently my teachers have all decided it's assignment time now. Bastards. That'll probably be in a post, soon, so I can keep track of due dates.

In fandom news, there's been a whole lot of rather daft - and not so daft - rumours going around. The most interesting (to me, at least) is the Children in Need one. Possibly because I had dismissed it as rubbish (though rubbish that would be ovely to see, if pulled off well), until I heard it was supposedly for CiN, at which point it became a lot more believable.

I'm still not 100% convinced, but as a charity special, I think it could happen, and am looking forward to seeing it. But will it be canon?

Also, lifeonmartha has an eye out for some more mods. If you're a fan of Martha and Doctor Who, and interested and able to help out drop us a line.

Oh, and over the weekend (yes, it's been that long since I posted...), I went and saw all the Dresden Files TV show. I may end up posting about my thoughts on it, but they can be briefly summed up as nowhere near as good as the books (which I seem to be rereading now). The one exception is Bob. Because TV!Bob is made of shiny and love and win, and is quite clearly the best thing about the show by far, and is in fact the best thing about most TV shows.

TV!Bob should have his own show. No matter what else happened in it, I would watch it for TV!Bob.

I'd watch TV!Bob :) Book!Bob just isn't the same :( He's great and all, but not the same.

Bob is probably the one thing the TV show did better than the books. For the most part I would easily rate the books as better (Though I did read them first, so there's a bit of bias there...), but with Bob, there is no question.

TV!Bob is love.

I've done the opposite, TV then books - the books are better :) Harry is just way cooler (so is Murphy actually, TV!Murphy is a bit bland)

Most of the characters have more depth in the books, really. Especially Harry, whose darkness really does get explored a bit - and I agree on Murphy.

It also happens to have a running thread, which the TV show doesn't. (What About Bob should have been the season finale, if they'd had any sense whatsoever)

I agree with you completely about Bob. Bob needs his own show. And if I ever get the DVDs, it will totally be for him.

I don't care if they never bring the rest of the show back, but Bob needs to be brought back. Even if it's just him standing there being fabulously snarky for 45 minutes a week, it'd be worth it.

And word on the DVDs. I probably won't get them, though - not that they are likely to show up in Oz any time soon.

And once again I am reminded that no matter what my hind brain insists, not everyone I talk to on the Internet lives in Illinois.

The DVDs are already out in America, so they exist, but I have no idea what, if any, overseas marketing deals have been made. Probably not a deal good enough since it's only the Bobaliciousness that is desired.

Somebody needs to put Bob's Greatest Moments on YouTube, that's what!

...That'd make for a terribly crowded Illinois.

But I have no idea if the DVDs are even available my region, though I know no networks have picked the show up here yet.

And yes, Bob's greatest moments would be fab.

It would. And I have no idea why Illinois in particular. But my subconscious is a strange, strange place, and it is apparently simplifying life by going binary - either I know your general house address or you're in Illinois.

If it's a Children in Need special, it will probably be a comedy piece. I doubt a 15 minute bit can do such a crossover justice.

Agreed, actually. Which is a pity, because a serious multiDoctor thing could be really interesting, given the Time War and all.
