1 part crankiness, 2 parts fandom goodies

Casting spoilers for SJA:

"Jo Grant" -- oh hey squee that could be fun! -- ...and "The Doctor," as in Eleven.

No.  NO.  MOTHER F(*@&$@ G(@*&@4!  I will not stand for this!  I WILL NOT STAND.  This just isn't fair; it was easy to break up with Doctor Who and easy to break up with Torchwood but nothing can ever make me break up with SJA, and I shall be forced to endure its horrible acceptance of change totally undermining that meaningful last goodbye, and...

*gnashes teeth*  I mean, if only had to skip the Doctor's appearance, I would do that without question, but I am intensely curious to see if 21st century Jo, about whom I know nothing, turns out to be as awesome as 21st century Sarah Jane (about whom I also knew nothing) was.  I would very much like to see Jo!  stunt_muppet  talks about her an awful lot, and stunt_muppet knows her classy ladies even if we have taken largely divergent paths in fandom.  But if they're paired in the same episode, then screw it.  And I very much resent having to choose between exposure to gross awful change, and voluntarily giving up time with my otherwise perfect show. 

Personally, I am still reeling from those other casting spoilers, about a new kid and what that might mean for Luke, which I have almost convinced myself are mere rumors because I just cannot believe that my beautiful and perfect show could be gradually whittled down to only one core player*.  That person is Sarah Jane, who will keep me watching forever, but not without protest. 

* You there, Clyde.  You started out on the bottom of the heap, and people getting knocked off the top via departure only advances your rank by relativity, not actual appreciative merit.  Whatever I said in December, my settings have reset to their original default.

Although, maybe I will make it a nice clean break.  Series 3 ended on such a lovely note that I don't really need it to go further... (okay, that's a lie, but I am 80% sure I'll make good on my skipping-an-adventure threat).

2. Bones is still on suspension for bad behavior, but I accidentally found some fabulous and rather amusing fanart which needs to be shared with you yesterday.

3. Speaking of yesterday, I wasted a significant portion of my life watching this thing o' beauty multiple times in a row:

Watch it!  You will laugh until your sides hurt.  If you are me, you will also feel pangs of exquisite woe, as it reminds you how much you adore Ten, in ways you might have even forgotten, followed by renewed stabbing hatred towards Eleven.  But, um, focus on the laughter and the perfection of all the songs/sequences chosen. I especially love Ch-Ch-Changes, in all its heartbreaking but remarkably well-edited glory.

4. I have yet to watch either Lost or Glee, because I was out last night, and now I am sitting here full of so much feverish anticipation for both that I ACTUALLY CANNOT CHOOSE which to watch first, with the result that I am somehow watching neither even though I sat down here an hour ago.  I can't handle having so much awesome TV on Tuesday!

...maybe you could watch Jo's adventures in Old Who? I know it's not the same as SJA, and she doesn't get to interact with Sarah, but at least you'd get to experience her classiness firsthand without having to watch Eleven. Plus, Jo's stories are more readily available online and such, you're already familiar with her Doctor, and you'd also get to meet the Master before he became from John Simm.

Which reminds me that not only have I not quite finished SJA Season 3, but I also never finished the Picspam Recap of The Time Warrior! Squee, I've been looking for something to do that's not my schoolwork!

Also, Sweets' LiveJournal and Team Dinners are a thing of beauty, so thanks for pointing me their way. :)

I just watched The Musical for the first time.


I feel terrible for laughing but it was beautiful.

...I did not until just this minute fully realize Jo was with Three. AWESOME. Pre-Simm Master intrigues me too. Hm. Perhaps I shall look into this after all.

Glad to bring all sorts of fandom joy into your life! Jack's death montage really is spectacular, it's clearly a better theme song than whatever tune he has on the soundtrack.
