Mad Man's Words

Every single Reader/Writer I trust agrees that this story is cluttered and confusing as a result of the edits I made to appease the comments of my professor. I agree with this claim.

My professor gave me 100 and said I should submit it to a journal immediately.

What is happening?

Was looking up photos of Bessie and found this one.
Because tying the sound guy to the car was surely the safest way to get the job done.

I feel like Clara is turning into what Seven tried to turn Ace into except now The Doctor realises what a fucking terrible idea that was.

An anon requested an "unconventional" set of tags for the tag game going around (where people reblog and write in the words and click whatever tag shows up first). So here’s some ones that I don’t think I’ve seen around before!

  • chocolate
  • kill
  • done
  • try
  • stop
  • why
You could maybe talk about the music of Psycho. It elevated a scary film into something truly suspenseful and terrifying. Or possibly the sound effects in the famous rape scene in A Clockwork Orange bringing the sequence to the very edge of bearability.

We actually discussed those in class, so I think they’re off limits for the presentation. Good choices on your part, though!

I think I’m going to use Star Trek (2009), probably. It got nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing, and it’s a film I know well. Also the BAFTA for Best Sound. Plus, the Soundtrack won a Grammy (These are actually notes to myself for what to mention in the presentation).
I just need a scene.

I’m usually super good for talking about Doctor Who,

But I really should work on this short story.

And I need to decide on a scene to write about for my Film presentation tomorrow. What’s a good scene to talk about in relation to how Sound is used in movies?

There are things floating above Marty’s bed.

I am very impressed by how long they’ve been floating there.

It’s been at least 2 hours.

It’s amazing how much damage that dratted Dalek managed to do— considering he’s only equipped with a sink plunger and an egg whisk.

I don’t understand why having a donate button on one’s blog is seen as a bad thing by some individuals. honestly. it’s just providing a means for generous people to help someone out if they’re hard on cash.

no one has to give them money. if donate buttons bother you in any way for some reason, all you have to do is ignore it. no one is forcing you to go on their blog. no one is making you give them money. 

all a donate button does is allow people to have a way to help another person out. there’s literally nothing wrong with that. don’t send people hate for being in a tough financial spot and wanting some help, geez.

Just in case anyone doubted zagreus-taking-time-apart when they said ”there’s an episode of big finish where the dr grows another tardis and while it’s all tiny and small he tells it bedtime stories.”

And the Doctor takes the baby black TARDIS on adventures as she grows and talks to her and she beeps back at him and it’s basically the most adorable thing ever.

you know what doesn’t get enough appreciation? the fact that there’s an episode of big finish where the dr grows another tardis and while it’s all tiny and small he tells it bedtime stories. why does no one talk about that
