A little battered and fried (in a pan I believe) bulgogi served up at Seoul Korean BBQ in Burbank. You sometimes see the Fish Jun but rarely the meat. I believe it is very popular in Hawaii but seldom available west of there. More about this little family run restaurant here
I was recently inspired (by Michelle Bernstein, who is my BFF. Not really. But she did talk to me. I promise. Go look at it on my blog.) to get a little more creative with salad. I took a beloved, traditional dish — the lobster roll — and transformed it into a lower carb salad version that was a little lighter on the mayonnaise and butter. The tangy, fresh lobster salad on the bright butter lettuce felt so springy and happy, but the garlic butter croutons were the piéce de resistance. Mike sliced up some juicy watermelon for dessert, making this a quintessential (and amazing) spring meal.

help me gather up some movie trailer day theme ideas!! As it stands Monday is gonna be a movie trailer day and I picked PIRATE MOVIES!!! Do you really want ME to be picking theme ideas all by my lonesome? I'm weird and who knows what I'd think of!!! HAH!
Here comes a silly idea I once had. It is said that Edison's inventions were not his own, and that he may of had stole ideas passing them as his own.
Whether that is accurate or not, let's say that is the case, and The Doctor lands on his timeline, then Edison attempts to get the TARDIS as his own invention when he manages to enter it (plot elements aside).
What would anyone here think of the idea?
And he took me to the river, where he slowly let me drown... Eleven/River. Clara Oswald. 18.

Let's have a movie theme day Monday, haven't had one in while and let's gather up themes for movies so I don't have to think of them and I can just put them in a baggy in the hat and then pull one out in the future! I was thinking of a pirate movie theme for Monday, does that sound okay?
On a forum elsewhere it came up about Eccleston refusing to be in the 50th show, and someone replied that they hated actors like that, who acted like it was beneath them, and was probably just bitter than 10 proved so popular compared to him.
However I remember his stated reason for leaving was not wanting to be type cast, and there were rumours that it was due to backstage issues (iirc he announced leaving even before filming was over).
Was there ever found to be any truth to the idea he didn't get on with anybody backstage? Or do we know more as to why he didn't want to commit to this?
Thanks for any info
Cut for those who haven't seen the newest episode
At the beginning of the episode when the Doctor is stealing the TARDIS, who is he escorting into the room, right before Clara says "You're making a big mistake"? Is it supposed to be Clara? Also, I'm assuming that they took footage from another episode. Is there footage online somewhere?

I have Eleven/Clara feels following the series finale so beware…that’s mainly what I feel like writing right now. I feel like this is the first in a few to comesummary He was larger than life. Most times.
Hi! I remembered Bells of St John and remembered Clara said something about a nice woman giving her the Doctor's phone number. Now if I remember correctly, it was never mentioned who she was, right? After the finale, and what happened with her (and after River's little comment) does it mean the woman is actually an older scattered Clara or was it actually River?
Is there a place to post one's DW fanfic on LJ? I've tried searching but I haven't really found much... If not, I may just create a comm if I can. If we're allowed to here, sorry for the post; obviously I didn't know we could, lol.

Amazing how the women of color are not being portrayed excessively derogatorily, though Tam Tam woman does seem to have suffered a wardrobe malfunction. Is that a pasty?
Lute Lady looks like she's trying to hide something.
Hey, a hurdy gurdy!
Even if they are cigarette ads, they're still lovely, aren't they? These are available on the Duke (connection to product?) University digital archive. I with they listed the year(s), but I would guess 1880s/1890s? I'm guessing these were some sort of trading cards.
Okay, this is a silly question which probably is not important at all, but it's always bugged me. The dalek-puppet that tricks the doctor in Asylum of the Daleks has a daughter, one that is apparently in the Asylum. Moments later, Dalek-Clara is talking about her mum's birthday. The implication is that she is the dalek-puppet's daughter, but it's never confirmed or denied. Is she?
A friend of mine offered to give me his set of "Doctor Who Magazine" (which has gone by a couple different names in its long history) and I'm curious whether you would recommend them.
He has most of the 1989-1994 run, and then Sept 1987 and July 1997.
Of course this is mostly the era of the Seventh Doctor and then the Gap between Doctors. In Classic Who I'm mostly into the Fourth and Fifth Doctors. But especially since I understand that the magazine featured stuff on previous Doctors during the Gap years, I'm wondering if there might be gems about Doctors Four and Five in there?
Also - are they particularly collectable? I'll let him know if they are valuable at all.
As I don't wish to spoil anyone here, I will confine my comments to an LJ cut because I'm just that nice.
OK, so, The Name of the Doctor:
I knew that they weren't going to give him an actual proper name. That would have been just wrong.
The resolution to Clara's arc made sense about as much as anything in Doctor Who makes sense. I did struggle a bit with the GI's motivations for what it did, but I resolved that it was a combination of revenge and a longing for release from what apparently was an agonizingly empty immortality. It apparently already knew all there was to know about the Doctor, and that wasn't enough. It had to destroy him and thus destroy itself.
Part of me wishes that the Paternoster gang could have its own spinoff, but I suspect that the charm of that group would get old very fast independent of the parent show. Nonetheless, Strax is the first Sontaran I've actually liked in the history of the show. The kind of Sontaran you'd want to go out on a bender with, you know? (Except he'd probably just go around bending things)
Now to the biggie: The nameless incarnation of the Doctor.
I gotta admit I did NOT see this one coming. I knew John Hurt was going to be in the 50th Anniversary special but had no idea who he was playing. The internet is rife with all kinds of theories about who or what he is. Here are some ideas of mine:
I think, first of all, that any notions of him being the Valeyard are unlikely in the extreme. That would just seem too prosaic for Steven Moffat's style, even if the GI named the Valeyard already. Personally I wasn't nuts about the Valeyard, as he just didn't seem like a very well written character, but that's me and I don't hold it against anyone who liked him.
So, who is he? The Doctor emphatically states "I said he's me, I never said he was The Doctor!" The obvious implication is that this incarnation (whom I will call, for sake of clarity, Hurty) was the one who participated in the Time War. This makes sense for a number of reasons, the most clear of which to me is that Steven Moffat has only really alluded to the Time War, but never had a story that dealt directly with it. I think this was a smart move on his part as Russell T. Davies referred back to the Time War often, and sort of closed that loop during his tenure, at least insofar as explaining why it was necessary for both sides to be destroyed (the Time Lords end game ultimately being no different than that of the Daleks).
However, with the 50th Anniversary, it would surprise me if Moffat didn't finally tackle the Time War given how significant it is in the canon of the show. The allusions to it this season have suggested that it would become a more significant story line, and the presence of Hurty all but confirms it for me.
So, why is Hurty the Doctor's secret? Well, for one thing, he apparently did something really bad that, though he had no choice in the matter, was nonetheless something bad enough that the Doctor disowns Hurty from the timeline of the Doctor. One assumption is that Hurty is the one who threw the switch that made everyone go boom. Well, yeah, but we already knew that the Doctor killed the Daleks and Time Lords, didn't we? He has admitted to doing so time and time again. This would seem to argue against Hurty being the one who did it. So then, what did he do?
My current theory is that it was he who started the Time War.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary:
Title: Solonian Seasons
Characters: 4th Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith (references to 3rd Doctor, Jo Grant)
: In the 3rd Doctor story "The Mutants" the natives of the planet Solos metamorphosized as their planet moved from its 500 year spring into summer. What happened at the other seasons?... (Read More...
This is based on the episode "The Mutants," a Classic Doctor Who story where the aliens metamorphosize to adapt to their planet's extreme seasons. The different phases in this story are derived from the symbols on the tablets the Time Lords sent the Doctor to deliver in the episode.
It is written as an article by Sarah Jane Smith, with a surprise at the end.
Here's a picture of the tablets.

A new Radio Free Skaro episode!:
Well, the most recent series of Doctor Who has wrapped up, and what a way to do it – a fangasmagoria from Steven Moffat containing notable nods to the past and tantalizing hints of what’s to come. “The Name of the Doctor” gave fans what they wanted (and more) in a 50th anniversary story, and it was six months early! But what did the Three Who rule think of this extravaganza? Also discussed in this episode were the now assured future of Doctor Who and the show’s return in Series 8, stats, more stats, and the potentially damaging effects of Eurovision. And now, six months to wait until more new Doctor Who…but what else does the BBC have in store before then?
