Went to my boyfriend's place yesterday to watch the new Doctor Who episode with him and his flatmates. One is also a Doctor Who fan and the other we have now converted, having showed her "Midnight", "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" and the new episode, "The Eleventh Hour". The episode was slow to download so we watched other videos while we waited for it, including the one from which the title of this post is taken: New Zealand's first home-grown internet meme. Or at least, the first home-grown New Zealand internet emem I've heard of. Basically, a guy from ACT on campus, the student arm of the ACT Party, was on a morning current afairs show talking about why Earth Hour is a bad idea. Hilarity ensued. The interview contains some truly headdesk-worthy logic (If pollution from our power consumption is causing environmental problems, let's just consume MORE POWER to solve the problems!) but also some gems: "It fails on three fun-loving levels" and the meme "I think my argument is so powerful, it's not necessary to talk about it".

Matt Smith is awesome. Let me repeat that: Matt. Smith. Is. Awesome. I'm already really liking Eleven. He's less manic and brooding than Ten, more lighthearted and, I think, a bit more moral. He's also (in my opinion) seriously cute.
The script had some great lines:
"Beans are evil. Bad bad beans."
"I'm the Doctor. I'm worse than everybody's aunt."
"Why can't you give me any decent food? You're Scottish, fry something!"
"Nothing sacres you. Box falls out of sky, man falls out of box, man eats fish custard..." get the idea. And then there was the new TARDIS. I won't spoil too much, but it's very steampunk and very, very awesome. As is the new sonic screwdriver. And the new improved CGI.
Bascially, I can't wait for more.
