Sindy See’s A Doctor Who

Should I be watching Dr. Who and blogging? Probably not, but I am. I should be reading History or my Web Design Dreamweaver text. I just saw “Blink” from Season 3, Episode 10.  I had seen the newer one with the Weeping Angels, the scariest of the Dr. Who monsters to me. A delightful episode in which Sally Sparrow helps the Doctor retrieve his Tardis.

I recognized the actress, Carey Mulligan, who stared in the film “An Education”  which I previous blogged about. I quite like her.


Here is a clip from “Blink”

“The Angels have the phone box. I have that on a tee shirt.” lol

The Weeping Angels are also in Season 5

Episode 4 “The Time of Angels”

Episode 5 “Flesh and Stone”

I Like Her Arms

 

I don’t really know how I feel about the Obama’s or any fracking politics for that matter, but I like her arms. This is from Oprah.com, “How to Get Michelle Obama’s Arms.”

 

Twice a week, spend 15 minutes strengthening and toning your arms. Start with the routine below, changing the number of reps, the size of your weights, or the order in which you perform the exercises at every workout.

Triceps Superset

Skullcrusher: Lie flat on the floor, a bench, or an exercise ball; tighten your core, hips, and glutes. Hold a 5- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand. Start with hands at ears, elbows pointed toward the ceiling. Extend weights toward ceiling by straightening elbows. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Overhead triceps extension: Without resting, stand and hold the dumbbells, elbows pointed toward ceiling. Extend arms straight into the air, then drop them behind your head. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Biceps Triset

Palms-up biceps curl: With elbows bent at your sides, hold a 5- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand. Bring hands down as far as you can, keeping palms facing the ceiling, then curl dumbbells back up. Do 15 reps.

Hammer curl: Without resting, turn palms to face each other, arms bent, elbows at your side. Alternate lowering and raising your arms until you’ve done 15 reps on each side.

Concentration biceps curl: Sit on a bench or chair. With dumbbell in right hand, press elbow against inside of right thigh. Allow arm to fully extend toward floor, then curl it back up toward you, ten to 15 times. Repeat on left side.

Dr. Who Made Me Cry

Spoiler Alert

So do not read because I am going to give it away. As I told you I was watching a Dr. Who marathon, trying to catch up. The first episode I watched was this one, Vincent & The Doctor. The actor Tony Curran would have made Vincent proud, a much better looking version of my favorite artist. Really enjoyable treatment of the scenes and things that van Gogh painted.

Spoiler Alert

You’ve been warned. 🙂

In one of the last scenes the Doctor takes van Gogh to a museum showing his work. Dr. Who ask the curator what he thinks of the artist within Vincent’s ear shot. Well you will have to watch it to hear what he says, but I cried. It was so moving. lol

My paper on Wagner is not great but I made a Power Point presentation to accompany it.

Dr. Who Versus Wagner

Can I watch Dr. Who and write a paper on Richard Wagner simultaneously? This is the question. I was just commenting that I had lost touch since the new doctor came on board, and I moved from Los Angeles to Louisiana. Then low and behold BBCA is airing the last two seasons 2010 and 2011. I now have over 20 Dr. Who’s to watch. 🙂 Want to anyway.

I have spent the day researching Wagner for a paper I have to write for my Theater Directing class. Ik new a little about Wagner and The Ring Cycle but not much. Since I am a visual person, instead of writing the paper, I made a Power Point presentation. very cool, I like to keep those skills in tact. We are to give an oral presentation of the paper so the pictures and video clips aught enhance the paper.

So after this I have to write the paper, can I watch Dr. Who and write about Wagner???

Here is an awesome clip from the documentary Wagner’s Dream.

Wagner and The Doctor?
