Do people actually use Tumblr as their primary blog, not just for, well, tumblelogging? Is that fighting against Tumblr’s intent so hard it’s pointless? What I’m saying is that Livejournal is pretty dusty and I don’t want to host my own software for various reasons and so I’m casting about a bit.
Also, if I did blog here, I wonder, should I do a separate tumblr for it (albeit under this account)?
Do I actually have anything to say? Do I care that there’s no decent comments system?
On Monday it was the second anniversary of my subscription drive. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has subscribed to Scary Go Round. Your donation, big or small, goes back into the comic. As a result of the donations last year, I was able to do many bonus or bigger comics…
“I’ve read Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke, but also Harry Potter, the Belgariad, and Lord of the Rings. I dig Spider-Man and also Green Arrow. I’m a member of the SCA and my first date with my wife of 24 years was a medieval fair and there’s a photo of me in Klingon makeup at a comics Defense Con. I’m religious and I grew up on AD&D. I’m telling you right now that there’s room for all the peoples of earth in my life and that’s as it should be.”—me, actually, on a post where ordinarily excellent fans of X were dumping on fans of Y as happens sometimes I fear
The most important thing is that we need to be a party that is inclusive and tolerant. We can be those things and be the party we always have been. We need to think about the environment - Teddy Roosevelt was a great environmentalist and people forget Reagan was the one who dealt with the ozone layer with the Montreal protocol. We also need to talk about healthcare honestly - Nixon almost passed universal healthcare. We need to have an talk about immigration and realize you can’t just deport people. We need a comprehensive answer. We also need to stay out of people’s bedrooms. The party that is for small government shouldn’t be over-reaching into people’s private lives.
Mainly, we need to be a party where people know what we are for, not just what we are against.

“Leo, we need to be investigated by someone who wants to kill us just to watch us die. We need someone perceived by the American people to be irresponsible, untrustworthy, partisan, ambitious, and thirsty for the limelight. Am I crazy, or is this not a job for the U. S. House of Representatives?”—C.J. Cregg, fictional Press Secretary, West Wing, “Ways and Means” (S03E03)
Not only will we be treated to a ‘new’ TARDIS during The Snowmen (Christmas Day at 5.15pm), but the episode will premiere a revamped theme tune and opening title sequence.
We can’t give too much away about the new-look titles except to say they are wonderfully dramatic and striking, with a couple of unexpected touches. In short, they’re a perfect way to welcome back the Doctor!
And fans of the famous Doctor Who theme tune needn’t worry… This new arrangement remains true to the original, written by Ron Grainer back in 1963, but on Christmas Day you’ll hear it as it’s never sounded before. This latest version is more thrilling and powerful but retains that slightly scary quality that remains stirring no matter how many times you catch it.
