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.
