Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
Oh I am going to regret replying to that Man of Steel post aren’t I?
One that maintains a conversation record.
10/11 paralells: murder+genocide
Remember when genocide and killing were things that the Doctor frowned upon, and would only do with a heavy heart? Remember when the Doctor tried to talk the villains into doing the right thing? Remember when the doctor had morals?
£500 says that Moffat never watched The Doctor’s Daughter. Oh but wait, he did request that they re-write the ending for Jenny to come back to life, in order for him to do fuck all with the character. But in retrospect, that’s probably a good thing.
OF COURSE YEAH
I MEAN REMEMBER WHEN ONE TOTALLY DIDN’T TRY TO KILL THAT CAVEMAN WITH A ROCK
OR WHEN FOUR TOTALLY DIDN’T USE A WEAPON AND JUST SAID THAT IT WASN’T A WEAPON
OR WHEN SEVEN DID NOT PRACTICALLY PROMISE TO WIPE OUT THE DALEKS
LIKE YEAH THAT ALL NEVER HAPPENED
BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE DOCTOR IS TOTALLY A HERO
HE FROWNS UPON MURDER AND GENOCIDE
HE WOULD NEVER
except for torvic and the master and cavemen and whoever died in the fires of rome and autons and yetis and daleks and cybermen and voord and monoids and ice warriors and elder gods and dominators and quarks and krotons and war lords and axons and sea devils and eight legs and silurians and sontarans and krynoids and tractators and the nimon and great vampires and vervoids and fendahl and haemovores and zygons and pyroviles and toclafane and faction paradox and the time lords and all of humanity …Let’s not forget that ten committed genocide in The Runaway Bride so you can stop putting him on a pedestal (✿◠‿◠)
I remember that time, the genocide was portrayed as a bad thing by the narrative, and the doctor didn’t enjoy it. In Day of the Moon, the doctor gleefully brainwashes the human race into murdering the Silence whilst helping River massacre a room full of them. Let’s not forget that either. (✿◠‿◠)

Families in Doctor Who (aka Steven Moffat doesn’t understand people) by Claudia Boleyn.
This is a little video I made earlier focussing on the lack of families in the Moffat era, and contrasting that with the rich variety of family dynamics we were given in the RTD era.
I do not think Moffat knows how to write people, real human emotion, love, or humanity, and I think it’s killing Doctor Who.

Something I’m considering
So I’m thinking I’m going to do a complete overhaul of my blog soon. Until recently I’ve used Tumblr as a place to express my interests and enjoy the company of other people who share them (even if I never did a lot of social interaction with other people on here in the first place, but oh well). But I’m thinking now that I want to use it for something else. I always see artists and other people with creative talent more or less devoting their blogs to showcasing what they’re capable of. I’m thinking that’s the direction I want to take my blog. Make it less personal and more of a showcase of my work.
Of course that would mean I’d have to start making work to put up. But hey we’ve all gotta start somewhere and I think I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to be putting up here if I do do this big change.
The point of why I’m considering this, and probably why I’m going to do it, is because I want to change my image. I don’t want to be just another tumblr blogger with a goofy picture in his profile and obsessing over fandoms. I want to be someone who makes something and gets recognized for it. I’ve always been pretty ambitious in terms of what I want to do with my life but I don’t always follow through with my plans and there’s only so many times I can say “I want to be the next Joss Whedon/Andrew Hussie/Bryan Lee O’Malley/Lewis Lovhaug/Whoever” and not do anything about it. I want to start to set myself up as someone who can become what I always say I will and then become just that.
So yeah, going from “changing my Tumblr” to “I wanna be loved and recognized for my awesome work” is a pretty big leap, but aspiring to make impossible climbs is what I’ve been doing my whole life, why stop now especially if it gets me somewhere? In closing, if anyone who follows my blog notices a lot of my posts missing or the layout of my blog changing or something, don’t be surprised.
Alex Storm out.
I saw this earlier today, and at first I thought to myself, “Well, the only thing I learned from this is that I should be e-mailing Disney Channel and telling them to keep doing what they’re doing in this regard.”
But then I thought, "You know what, why not?" Disney Channel has been getting hate from groups like Flordia Family Association and One Million Moms because of their choice to include a two mom family in one episode of their show.
In a business that runs off of support from its viewers, getting swarmed with anti-LGBT letters has to be daunting. I have no doubt that Disney IS gauging public reaction. And I’m sure a lot of what they’re getting right now is tons of spam for a few isolated groups like this.
So why not take two minutes out of your day to encourage Disney to continue to make strides towards equality? So called “Family” organizations are trying to make their voices so loud that it seems like they have the majority view, but if every person who sees this reblogs it and sends a quick e-mail with a few nice words, we would easily outnumber them.
So lets do it. Step away from your dashboard for just one moment to help Disney make one more step towards LGBT inclusiveness.
Go forth and do what you do best, Tumblr.
