The doctor explains how the tardis is bigger on this inside (x)
Help. This actually makes sense.
Indeed, one of the most fascinating moments in Classic Who!
….I actually understand the Tardis now…
“Oh Amy, I hear the song of your sadness.”
“I’m not sad.”
“Then why are you crying?”
Spent many, many hours livestreaming and working on this painting - my tribute and goodbye to the magnificent Amy Pond (and how she inspired the greatest painter that ever lived!) I of course purposely researched Van Gogh works such as Starry Night and Sunflowers and would like to think if Amy stayed for a portrait, Vincent painted something like this.
Oh my God this is INCREDIBLE!!
Ellen June is an artist from Canada who uses air-drying clay, wire, glaze and acrylic paint to create these amazingly beautiful sculptures of fantasy animals. Each sculpture is handmade and painted with no more tools than fingers and a paint brush, completely unique and produced in a fluid and intuitive manner. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each sculpture is completely unique. She’s absolutely incredible.
AU MEME » LOTR as a dark & violent thriller » “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
How would you call a city infected by carcinogenic and ambitious men, feeding off the strenght of its citizens, weakening them slowly by taking away jobs, peace, dreams and hope? A city dying, mirroring the living dead that inhabited its streets.? A city so corrupted that its only prerogative is its own survival and self perpetuation? A city in the hands -and claws- of a rotten soul?

Introducing the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control
We’re excited to share this one. A sonic screwdriver television universal remote.
Can we say that one more time? A SONIC SCREWDRIVER UNIVERSAL REMOTE(!!!)
The Wand Company - known for developing the World’s first infrared remote control magic wand and BBC Worldwide today reveal a must-have accessory for Doctor Who fans – the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control. Join BBC Worldwide in the North American unveiling of the remote control at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, in BBC AMERICA booth #3629 starting preview night July 11 through the end of Comic Con.
A high quality metal replica of the Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver currently used by the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, the new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control is a gesture-based universal remote control that utilises infrared (IR) technology to manipulate almost all earth-based home entertainment systems - from TVs and iPod docks to DVD/Blu-ray players and beyond.
With a green flashing tip and an impressive four operational modes – including a practice mode – and three memory banks, a total of 39 commands can be stored in the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control, giving the option of operating multiple home entertainment devices with just a different flick of the wrist.
We just played with it at the BBC America booth and it’s pretty easy to use. It’s also really really cool.
In the meantime, stop by the BBC America booth (#3629) at San Diego Comic Con to check it out.

You can buy all these from HomeDepot, and get most of them cut for free there as well. If not, any saw would do the trick, just a bit more work on your part. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I made some CAD drawing for anyone who wants to try this as a weekend project. Good Luck and Cheers!
