And so I keep my annual tradition of singing at you whether you want me to or not. For the tenth year. O.o

Since this is the tenth year I was going to try and do something weird and challenging and get into multiple vocal tracks on Garage Band... buuuut I suck even worse at that than I suck at singing. :-P

So, here is me tormenting The Christmas Song (aka the one that starts with chestnuts) )

Whatever sort of seasonal hootenanny you're having this time of year, may it be awesome!

I have some thoughts about the midseason finale of DC's Legends of Tomorrow that I want to post. I saw the episode a while back, but it's taken a while to get my thoughts into words, and they still aren't very coherent words.

SPOILER WARNING: if you have not seen the episode and are avoiding info for it, this contains spoilers up to and including 2.08


SNAAAAAAAART!! \o/

I wasn't expecting anything going into this episode because I don't watch the promos or ads, and had no idea this return was in the works. I saw Wentworth Miller in the credits and literally screamed. I had no idea how much I had missed Snart. (Rick Hunter was a nice surprise too.)

Rory and Snart talking to each other made me realize how their speech patterns were in a sort of sync, and still are despite Snart having been gone for so long. And Rory's "I'll be dead like you" is haunting with the sense of how deeply Mick truly misses his friend and partner in crime.


Now, the theory: I think Snart was not a hallucination. Here's my thinking.

The way Snart died, it likely spread him throughout all time and space. Initially I thought it might be a Clara Oswald sort of thing where he exists in multiple periods of history, etc. But this occurrence makes me think he's been slowly coalescing. Pulling himself back together across time and space, and becoming a sort of temporal ghost in the interim.

Leonard's not dumb; he'd realize pretty quick after regaining the capacity to realize things that no one he was around was reacting to his presence, and since he knew he was going to die when he died, he'd probably assume he was a regular ghost. Maybe he's been trying to communicate and maybe he's just been sitting back and snarking. Maybe Mick's said something before that seems like he's responding. Not sure. Needs brain.

The thing is, Mick has never moved on from the loss of Leonard. Nothing shows that more than that quiet little 'I'd be dead like you'. He tried to make Ray be Snart-like. Rory carries that Snart-shaped hole with him everywhere. They were each other's best and practically only friends, the only ones they could get close to really trusting for so long. With that level of personal attachment housed on a ship that travels through time, it seems to me Mick Rory would act like a sort of Snart magnet. Gathering up bits of Leonard Snart wherever they land, taking them back into the ship to form a concentration that could begin to manifest as a hallucination or ghost.

Also, Mick was in the hands of the Time Masters for a while, and they made him into Chronos. This probably involved modifications that improved certain temporal senses. I think Mick is Leonard's focal point due to their personal attachment, and that Mick has begun to see/hear/sense him because he is closest to Snart and thanks to the Time Masters' interference, he is now the most sensitive to this sort of thing. Gideon may not be as attuned, or not have the same emotional connection, or it could be that Snart is on her cleared personnel list, so the Snart-like trace that has started appearing on board doesn't ping her radar, and since he has been accreting gradually, not appearing suddenly or entering through any of the Waverider's doors, so any trace Gideon may have detected has been waved off as background noise or minor interference.

So, yeah. That's what I think. As the Waverider travels through time, Mick Rory is acting as a magnet to bring wayward Snart particles/energies/hoody-hoo onto the ship, which have now conglomerated enough to be aware and snark at Mick for turning slowly into a hero.

Or something like that. It'll do for me until the series gets around to bringing Snart back in full. Because they'd better.

caffienekitty: Dean sitting slumped in a chair. "Will kill for coffee" (DW - science awesome)


This is a movie based on the lives of real women in the NASA space program in 1961. And if there was any fairness, the Johnson Space Center would be named after one of them instead of a President.

The only reason I've heard about this movie is because I'm on the NASA press release email list, and the only reason I know it's coming out so soon is because I follow Chris Hadfield on Twitter. I am stunned that I have not heard or seen anything else anywhere about this movie (although I don't get to theatres very often and don't watch enough broadcast TV to see many commercials, so maybe it is being promoted well and I just live under a rock.)

If you are interested in women in STEM, equal rights for women and for people of color, NASA history, spaceflight, math, or learning about people history should have celebrated a lot sooner and a lot louder, this is a movie you will want to see.


(Note: I will also be posting this on my Tumblr page, so those of you following me in both places will see it twice)

caffienekitty: (spoiler)
There is a new trailer today for the upcoming 4th series of BBC's Sherlock that is reported to be hugely spoilery. Please exercise caution if you want to avoid getting spoiled.

If you are not a spoilerphobe, please remember to be considerate of others and put images and discussions for future series' under a cut. So far every post I've seen has been really good about warning for spoilers, but it's so easy to get caught up with excitement and let things slip, so please be considerate of your fellow fans' experience.

I would advise NOT EVER making the recipe included herein as I made it up from thin air and it'd probably be nasty. Also, parts of this story may offend people from Yorkshire?

Summary: Moving in with Sherlock exposes John to Mrs Hudson's family traditions.

So I'm catching up on watching the new Doctor Who spin-off Class, and I've made a post over on tumblr about one thing, but I just have to say I am REALLY having a hard time taking the blood-sucking floral tribbles flower petals seriously. Like I'm at the part where people on the street are thrashing around getting eaten alive by mounds of flower petals and laughing so hard I can't breathe.

OH HELL YES.



So. Very. Yes. All the yes. Possibly my new favourite movie of the MCU. I have read some Doctor Strange comics in the past and know a little bit about the characters from playing the late lamented Avengers Alliance iPhone game. This movie. Yes.

Seriously, I'm finding it hard to calm down enough to type. I've been ricocheting around my apartment with glee. SO awesome. If you see it and can handle 3D, go to the 3D version. Benedict Cumberbatch's American accent stopped being weird for me a short way in (he sounded a bit like House at times) and it's like AAAAAAAAAAA!!!! He can be Doctor Strange for as long as RDJ has been Iron Man please. I'll wait a few extra years for more Sherlock if he can do more Doctor Strange, like, right now.

So, yeah. I liked it. A LOT.
