Timey Wimey Weekend

So, besides that holy Jesus day, this weekend is also featuring the NEW SEASON OF DR WHO!!!!!! OK, so....I don't actually have cable, so I will not be watching it (insert saddest puppy face ever. Now multiply that by a million), but I can still celebrate with the above video showing one of the makings of that iconic Dr. Who theme (also my current cellphone ring).

Additionally, you can wear the proper attire for such a prestigious weekend:

If you're a fan of the Doctor, you know the Angel episodes are the creepiest ones ever. Show the world you almost wet your pants because a statue with this shirt from ThinkGeek!

Maybe you've got a lot of fandoms on your plate (which, sadly, isn't full of pie) and you can't choice between the two. Don't worry, Shirtoid's got you covered.

Now, even though there is a lot of celebrating this weekend (the Lord rising, the Time Lord rising, etc), there is a bit of sadness. The wonderful Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane, passed away this week. She was only 64-years-old (and, honestly, I was surprised she was that old. That woman looked AMAZING). I loved Sarah Jane's character; spunky, quick, and feminist, and seeing her come back in the Dr. Who reboot was just the best. Her passing was a sad sad day in the Whoverse. John Kovalic of Dork Tower said it the best with this post. Farewell Sarah Jane. Somewhere out there, the lonely Doctor is a bit more lonely.
