Come On, Get Happy! I'm on The Happiness Patrol!

If you enjoyed our discussion on the ins and outs of building your own TARDIS (Police Box) in Doctor Who: Podshock 230 with special guests, the crew from The Happiness Patrol podcast, check out the latest episode of their podcast (The Happiness Patrol 47) in which I was invited on to talk about another Doctor Who icon, scarves! 

Read my recent blog entry on ATP about it:

Come On, Get Happy! I'm on The Happiness Patrol! -

The Happiness Patrol podcast episode 47

For what feels like for the longest time, we have been trying to get Lewis Bailey to join us on an episode Doctor Who: Podshock. Lewis does a podcast called The Happiness Patrol @TheHPatrol along with Dale Who @FishCustard2010 , Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara (who you may also know as a Corespondent for Doctor Who: Podshock), and Lela Sandstrom @LelaSandstrom, due to scheduling reasons it never worked out. He has been also trying to get me on The Happiness Patrol as well for a while and for the same reason, it hadn't worked. Although we had Lewis on an episode in a recorded segment at the Doctor Who: Podshock 5th Anniversary Event we held last August as well on an episode from Gallifrey 21 last February in Los Angeles at our Meet & Greet Event there, this is the first time we have him on our show in a studio setting for Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 230 along with Dale, Tara, and Lela. Not only is The Happiness Patrol in the latest episode of DWP, but I am in the latest episode of The Happiness Patrol as well!

Matt Smith Found!

Tara and Matt SmithThe last couple days, Doctor Who: Podshock Correspondent, Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara has been on the hunt for Matt Smith who is in the US currently shooting Doctor Who in Utah for the upcoming new 2011 series. Matt Smith also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Tuesday.

From this photo that Tara has posted to her Tumblr blog, it appears she has found what she was looking for today. Somehow I am not surprised. When Tara has a goal set in her sights, there's very little that can come between it and her. She hasn't checked in with us since as of yet and I haven't caught up with her Twitter feed yet, so I don't have the details just now, but the photo seems to have been posted about 2 hours ago.

Tara's Terrific TARDIS Tattoo

tumblr_l96n5fXaiC1qcsm8ro1_100.jpg

Cheers to Doctor Who: Podshock Correspondent Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara on her new transdimensional tattoo. We all watched last night via Twitter as she, her DH (David Wheeler), and Emily @emilyooo documented Tara's adventure. Tara being Tara of course brought colour samples of the scarf for Jon Reed, the tattooist to use... Yes, I said scarf. As you can see, a scarf is also included in the TARDIS (police box) image.

No, I already asked if dematerializing ink was used on it. She said that is on the other shoulder.

Was it painful?

Fans and Friends Come Together to Help

Doctor Who fans are coming together on the net to help out a fellow fan and friend, Johanna Mead. Johanna ( @britgeekgrrl ) is well known at Doctor Who conventions across the US for her detailed and creative costumes, she is also a writer and an English expatriate living in northern California. Unfortunately, her husband had just recently lost his battle against cancer and the online community of fans and friends have come together to help raise money to help offset the costs of the final arrangements.

Ken's Scarf Day 2

Cast OnWell, here I am in wonderful Taos.

It's been a very busy day for me and the DH.

I didn't sleep very well, so I got up early and logged Ken's Scarf into Ravelry.com as my current project.  I got everything out, went to YouTube and loaded 'Robot' and cast on 65 stitches for Ken's Scarf.

I knitted for a while in Santa Fe and then we hit the road for Albuquerque.

By the time we got to Albuquerque, I'd knitted about 3.5 inches, so I went ahead and put the fringe on.

Scarves really don't look right until they've got some fringe on.

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

For who have the urge to smoke, will step outside to take "a cigarette break" -- for Tara Wheeler, that translates to an urge to knit. Here she is outside the pub at the DWNY and Gallifreyan Embassy joint meet up on June 15, 2009 to take a knitting break. This is how scarves are made. (Photo by Louis Trapani taken with a 1st gen iPhone)
