Doctor Who Burlesque!

1114posterMM

I’m a fan of all forms of art (except maybe Modern – sorry…) and expression and I have a great appreciation for the female form. Plus, as you all well know, my love of all things Doctor Who is infinite. So when I got the opportunity to attend “Dimensions of Time & Tease” – a Doctor Who burlesque show presented by Peepshow Menagerie, I jumped at the chance!

The opening act was a band called Ghost Noise and, although I wasn’t sure what to expect, I ended up being a fan of their ethereal electronic sound.

The Host was the Third Doctor portrayed by the fabulously named Wolfgang Wolfwhistle.

He was soon joined by the delightful (and scene stealing) Mr. Snapper as “Jack” (Harkness).

And then later by the lovely Glama Sutra as “Spoilers” aka River Song.

I was truly impressed by the costumes and performances of these lovely ladies and handsome gentlemen. They perform the third Friday of every month and I HIGHLY recommend attending one of their shows!

HNG Podcast: Doctor Who Edition

IMG_1919

Its official, we have a 12th Doctor! Peter Capaldi will be taking over the reigns from Matt Smith this Christmas and, while I’ll be so sad to see Matt go, I’m unbelievably excited to see what Peter will bring to the fish finger and custard-laden table. Darcy and I ended up talking about the Doctor Who ‘verse almost exclusively during this week’s podcast and we had A LOT of fun doing it. We also went into Torchwood quite a bit and speculated over the identity of the mysterious black actor who was offered and turned down (?!?!!) the role before it was offered to Peter Capaldi.

Allons-y!

And don’t forget to pre-order a copy of Forging Freedom, the anthology I contributed a sci-fi story to. The Anthology is being released in September and I’m taking pre-orders for anyone who is interested in getting it for the special pre-sale price of $15 which includes shipping. I’ll only be taking pre-orders until August 17th. I’ll get the copies by September 13th and I’ll ship it to you immediately following (I’ll also sign it unless you specify not to). In late September the book will be available on Amazon and in stores.
