THE RULES:
• Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.*
• Explain in five sentences why.
• Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

So that's me age, I think, about 4 or 5 and looking distinctly glum. I've done this meme before and explained my desktop gets picked at random from a big folder full of stuff. Said stuff includes a lot of pictures extracted from relatives' photo albums and scanned into the machine in the name of genealogy. Hence gloomy childhood photo of me.

*Assume less dictatorial tone than in the wording of the meme.

purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)
It's been fascinating, this week, to watch the discussion about Amy's Choice because a lot of it has been happening on a rather different level than the normal post episode discussions and that, I think, is an indication that this episode was rather more ambitious in its intentions and skilled in its execution than most Doctor Who. It's a shame then that, despite all this, I do think there was quite a lot about the episode that didn't work.

So what exactly did Amy choose? )

I got back from Toronto and headed off straight away for a Primeval weekend in Birmingham where, among other things we watched It's Alive entirely because it had James Murray in it.

I got rather distracted, early on, by [livejournal.com profile] lukadreaming's assertion that it had a Christian moral (said useful fact gleaned from the Internet).

Do I really need to spoiler cut for this? )

Internet investigation suggests the version of It's Alive we watched is the remake of a rather more interesting film which was playing with idea's drawn from Frankenstein and was intended, in part, as a parody of Rosemary's Baby, in which the Demon Baby only kills when threatened. That said, it sounds like the emphasis was still primarily on shocks rather than anything more substantial.
