Sci Fi Weekend, National Space Centre, June 18th

This one's a bit late, but at last I have some pics.

On June 18th, Rebekah and I visited the National Space Centre in Leicester, for their Sci-Fi weekend.

We had a really enjoyable time, the panel discussion with Terry Molloy (Davros), Colin Baker (Doctor #6), and John Leeson (K-9's voice) was great fun, as was John Leeson's anecdotal "A Dog's Life".

Thanks to Katy and Annette for making Rebekah's day, you are two very lovely ladies.

Dying for a Cuppa

Only the warped British sense of humour could come up with it. There was the good Doctor, in naff pyjamas, literally dying for a cup of tea. A stroke of genius.

But for me, the "Christmas Invasion" was surpassed in brilliance by Ian Grange's office nativity scene:

My Christmas Number One

Forget the trash on the radio, there is much much better trash on the net.

BoingBoing informs us that today is Dean Gray Tuesday, in honour of American Edit, the suppressed remix of Green Day's American Idiot.

Oddly enough, my fave track is the fantabulous Dr Who on Holiday, a glorious remix of Holiday and the Timelords' Doctorin' the Tardis (which is itself a mix of the Dr Who theme and Gary Glitter's Rock and Roll Part II). Wonderful stuff which brought a huge grin to my face and really deserves to be a Number One hit. There's even a video to go with it!

Beg, borrow, or steal this album, it's truly inspired.
