History of Robots

This blog is a young woman's account of life before the end of the world. Specifically, a 26 year old Canadian with an English degree and a tendency towards oversharing.

Blog may include books, movies, the paranormal, food, art, television (The X-Files, Bob's Burgers, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, The Simpsons, Firefly, Supernatural, It's Always Sunny...the list is ever growing), feminism, space, animals, how awesome things are sometimes & things that make me laugh. If you read the Discworld books then we might already be best friends.

Happy Birthday, Jessica Williams!

Jessica joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2012 at the tender age of 22, making her the show’s youngest cast member ever as well as its first black female correspondent.

“It’s impossible to be perfect, and you won’t do a good job if you’re too focused on proving yourself to others. Instead, I try to envision myself succeeding in whatever I’m doing.”

Vimes stepped out into the rainy night, and shifted his weight from foot to foot, and then took a few experimental steps.
Corner of Easy and Treacle Mine. A mix of flat-top cobbles and old bricks. Yeah.
He went home.

Production on 2014’s Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear!

The Christmas special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC One and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.

Nick Frost, actor and screenwriter, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote.

Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream ‘No spoilers!’ Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!”

Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.

They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it’s a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.” (x)

I love my skin!

I love that this is a way for Lupita to be a role model for children too young to see movies like “12 Years.”
