The Cloister Room

Hey, all. Fan of many podcasts, but new to the podcasting world. Thought you might enjoy having a listen?

The Cloister Room 001: The Small Screen, the Big Screen, and the Bigger-on-the Inside Screen

After a wishy-washy, namby-pamby episode zero, The Cloister Room roars onto the scene with its triumphant episode 001: "The Small Screen, the Big Screen, and the Bigger-on-the Inside Screen." In this episode, host Tom Dickinson kicks it off by discussing Doctor Who films: The ones that were made, the ones that were proposed, and the one that's rumored to be in development. All this and more (but not much more) in the exciting premiere of The Cloister Room.

idw comic ROOM WITH A DEJA VIEW (spoilers)

This Tenth Doctor traveling alone comic does its job well. It also houses a quite brave, often experimental, often confusing premise: an alien is living on a quartined space station living his life backwards to our's. The Doctor talks to himself although he calls it an internal monologue. Happened before sometimes. There's something about a mark on the Doctor's forehead. This story might just be beyond my grasp of understanding but it is good and I'm glad they tried a story like this. The art, while not as good as the ungoing new series, is adequate and better than earlier IDW comics. The old tv show almost never did anything like this story and the new show wouldn't dare...although BLINK came close.        

Anne Rice's Earth Angels

Presumably a pilot that never made it to be on the WB, by Anne Rice of INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE fame. The story has merit and hope for a future series but alas, it didn't make it. A girl dies or is killed. She comes back as an angel of good. She seems to pick traits up from other women, all of whom are targeted to be killed by dark angels. On Earth there is a battle between the dark angels and the light angels. To cast against type, the dark angel leader, who may or may not be the devil, wears white although he's played by the same guy from THE X FILES who played Krychek and also played in KYLE XY. The good angel leader is played by an African American actor, who's very good in the role. Other angels include a villianous serial killer, white angels who may or may not be able to kill. If they kill the dark angels, they might becomes evil themselves.

DVD Club

Just a thought, but would anybody be interested in participating in the Forum equivalent of a Book Club once a month. We could select a Doctor Who story - give a few weeks for everybody to watch it and then post our thoughts. They have something similar on the Gallifrey Base site but to be quite honest I find myself a little overwhelmed by the size of that website. Anyway, if anybody is interested, I'll make the first suggestion and then after a few weeks will post some discussion questions under a thread on that story. The story that I would like to suggest is:The Robots of Death. I'll post some discussion questions on: August 1st. Anybody else interested?

Packing, packing, packing

Packing, packing, and re-packing.

Most of San Diego Comic Con is standing in lines or crushing through a crowd to get somewhere, so I'm restricting myself to one bag on the con floor, another one for back at the hotel with clothes and back up stuff.

I keep going back and forth over whether or not I should wear one of my scarves. . .  I'll pack one full sized one and a bunch of the sample scarves.

Got my digital recorder, the iPhone, of course, the good digital camera, the new MacBook, sound canceling headphones and regular ear buds.

The scarf I'm currently knitting on.

Business cards, photographs, my PodShock t-shirt, plenty of sharpies and my autograph book.

Got my tickets, my boarding pass, my hotel reservation number.
