Come to chat Sunday night/tomorrow (instructions here) at 8 p.m. B.S.T. (convert to your own time here) to watch SHARKTOPUS!!! Many thanks to the intrepid soul who found and uploaded the file! We'll distribute the streaming link at the event. Sharktopus is a film in which Eric Roberts (aka Roberts!Master from the TV Movie) fuses a shark and an octopus together, and the resulting creature wreaks great havoc. I know, right? It's especially good as that's clearly just shit the Master would pull. Even fobwatched, clearly no one puts Roberts!Master in the corner... unless they want devoured by toothy tentacles or something.

SUNDAY NIGHT,
8 p.m. BST
SHARKTOPUS!!

[livejournal.com profile] stalkerbunny and I want to see Claws of Axos. And we want all of you to join us!

We'll have the watchalong on on saturday, 30th June, at 6 pm GMT. Use a time converter to establish when that is for you. As usual, we'll be using the comm's chatroom. Here's a faq if you don't know to access it. I've noticed that tardismedia is moving all it's videos over to another account; it doesn't host Claws of Axos anymore. Does anyone know what the new account is called? I couldn't find the new account, but I did discover some accounts that hosts Claws of Axos. Maybe one of them is the new account.

Here are a few links I found:
matrixarchive on dailymotion
goldtardis on dailymotion(this account hasn't put the videos in a playlist, so you have to browse the account for the next parts)
starwho100 on youtube (these are neither in a playlist)

If you have any questions, just ask me!


I rather like this gif so I'll never stop using it

Another spontaneous watchalong appeared!

This time we will watch Planet of Fire. Either it will be a glorious episode or a sobfest for all D/M fans. You're all very welcome to join- but at your own risk. I haven't seen it in it's entirety so I can't say how much we will laugh/cry. Or if we'll do both.

We will begin on sunday, June the 3rd, at 8 pm GMT. You can establish when that is in your timezone with a time converter. Here is the episode in question. We'll be using the comm's chatroom, and if you don't know how access it, then read the faq here.

Any questions? If you have none, then all you have to do is obey.

So here comes a spontanous watchalong!

[livejournal.com profile] xiilnek, [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin and I have decided to have a watchalong tomorrow. We've decided to see the episode "Survival". That's the episode with Cheetah!Master, if that helps you remember it. It is probably a very glorious episode!

So, all of you are welcome to join in if you can and want to!

It will start tomorrow at 3:00 PM Sunday the 18th, GMT. Use a time converter to establish when that is where you live. Here you can watch the episode in question. And we'll be using the comm's chatroom. Read this if you don't know how to access it.

If you have any questions, I will only bite your head off if you ask them. No, seriously, ask away!

TODAY, at 9 pm GMT/UTC (approximately 3 hours from now), I'll be watching "Curse of the Fatal Death" with whoever wishes to join me!  :-)

We'll be using this link to watch it from.  Follow the instructions as listed here to get to the chat room!  If you have any trouble with anything, I'll be checking this post and in the chat room about an hour beforehand to help as best as I can.

Don't know what your corresponding time zone time is?  Check out this other link.

And for those of you who can't make it/aren't really of the watchalong persuasion but want to be a part of the funtimes, there's an assorted bevy of things you can do to join in!  By replying to this post, you can:
  • Comment about CotFD!
  • Share your love and favorite moments!
  • Make comment fic about CotFD (because we need more)!
  • Make arts about CotFD (because we need more)!
  • Make interpretative dance videos about CotFD!
  • Ponder the existence of life
  • Spam us mercilessly*
*provided that said spam is actually relevant to the topic at hand.  For instance, spamming us with "Dalek bump enhancement technology"** would be perfectly suitable.  Spamming us with "Free college degrees at Hickville, USA" probably is not.

**You get bonus points if you actually do this.
[identity profile] narwhale-callin.livejournal.com

Hi comm!  Basically, I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in watching "Curse of the Fatal Death," say, sometime during this upcoming weekend with me?  I ask largely because:

1.)  I've never seen it before, and I'm scared to go alone.  DON'T MAKE ME GO ALONE!
2.)  From what I can tell by looking at the archives, the comm hasn't done an episode watchalong for "Fatal Death" before, which seems rather odd, considering the whole...um...ending, and its relevance to our interests.  We should reverse the polarity of this condition!  ***shot***

So, for anyone who's interested, list days and times (and state your timezone!) when you'd be free to watchalong with me.  We'll work something out somehow.

Otherwise, I'll just go....by myself....all alone....afraid....to the unknown.....

EDIT REDUX!

All right folks, due to some very logical points about accommodating regular weekday work schedules made by one [livejournal.com profile] 10littlebullets (thanks!), and also due to me discovering that I have to do things on Sunday, the conclusion is:

"CURSE OF THE FATAL DEATH" WATCHALONG WILL BE ON SATURDAY AT 9:00 PM UTC/GMT

If you need to figure out what time this would be in your time zone, I recommend looking at this site:  http://www.timezonecheck.com/

I'll put up a reminder post on Saturday.  Also, if you find you can't make the watchalong at that day and time, fear not!  Your thoughts, love, comments, etc. WILL NOT GO UNHEARD!  Because that same reminder post will also act as a discussion board/general CotFD love fest, in which I at least will be enthusiastically interacting with whoever wishes to share their Fatal Death-related comments and miscellany.  :-)  See you Saturday!

Hey all,

Due to low turn-outs, we're going to rest the official Watchalongs for a while and refocus our comm's attention on a series of fic and art challenges. The first of these should be up tomorrow, ooooh. You can still use the chat rooms, and/or post on b_e to propose Watchalongs in an individual capacity* and alert anyone interested in joining you. You can, of course, also propose any Watchalong or chat related suggestions to the mod team at [livejournal.com profile] b_emods, i.e. 'Hey, let's all do THIS at THIS TIME,' etc.

Thanks, and we'll have Challenge Info out to you soon!

* Of Who or anything decently related, and I play loose with my definition of 'decently related'. Forgiveness is easier than permission. Just use your discretion, post what you like, and I'll talk to you if it's not kosher.

Hey, all. It's that time again, and no one else has posted about it. Come join me in the chat for The Gunfighters. I guess I'll start in about ten minutes or so. Hopefully someone will drop by so that Mem won't be by her lonesome.

This Sunday at 8 PM BST, we will be watching The Ark. This episode features the first Doctor, Steven Taylor and Dodo Chaplet - oh, what's that? Who's Dodo, you say, and where did Vicki go? WELL. It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that all five of the opening stories of series 3 (no, not the one with crazy Simm!Master and Martha, that was series 29) have been subjected to eternal burnination barring some unchecked basements in Hong Kong. In memory of those those lost to the BBC’s 70s tape-saving policy, let us have a short (and extremely uneven, sorry, I’m new at this) recap.

Here lie Galaxy Four, Mission to the Unknown, The Myth Makers, The Daleks' Master Plan, and The Massacre - spoilers and slightly large pictures follow )

And that brings us, at long last, to a story intact - THE ARK!
Photobucket

The first Doctor, Steven, and Dodo arrive on an ark - an actual space ark, for the saving of mankind, earth animals, and Monoids (pictured above). Soon all are threatened by a combination of classism and the common cold.

Please join us Sunday, 8 PM BST to watch the next story of an exciting era of Who’s history. Those of you who are familiar with it, feel free to comment with the no doubt endless reasons why it must be seen, or with fond remembrances of the five burninated stories above. Or, uh, what they may have to do with the Master...? I feel so off-topic right now.

OH WELL, [livejournal.com profile] x_los TOLD ME I COULD

Hope to see you on Sunday!

So... it's that time again.  In about ten minutes or so, I'll be starting The Chase to continue the Watchalong of Time and Spa.  Come join Mem in the chat so she's not a sad little panda? I think this is the last serial for Barbara and Ian, so I really will be a sad panda this time, regardless of people being there or not, but it's more fun when there's someone else in there with me.  Hopefully I'll see someone there!

If anyone's around to watch The Space Museum - assuming my calculations are correct and that is indeed what is next on the schedule for Ultimate Watchalong All of Time and Spa - I will be in the chatroom from five minutes ago until, er, until such time as I see fit, hoping someone will come along and watch with me. I may begin even if alone (my brandy alexander will keep me company), but I will gladly start over if any Actual People show -

OH LOOK ONE ACTUAL PERSON. I guess the watchalong is a go for at least us, then. If any of you would care to join us, we'll wait until about half-past the hour (8:00 BST) to begin. Hope to see you there!

Mods, please feel free to create an actual post for this if you see fit.

PS: Has anyone seen this? I think it may be Relevant to Our Interests - it's a forthcoming past Doctor adventure featuring the third Doctor, the Master, and no other mentioned companions. "[S]et on both 20th century Earth and far into the future, it will see the duo battling to save the universe – and facing the ultimate moral crisis." Sounds like a recipe for goodness to me.
EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] x_los has informed me that the book does have Jo in it, actually, which is fine by me. Expanded article with added giant-squid-flavor illustration of the Nestene consciousness here!

'The Sensorites' becomes relevant in Ten era because the Ood resemble the titular species, and are stated to be genetically related to them. More importantly in terms of overall canon, Susan demonstrates telepathic powers in this serial, making this the show's first instance of psychic!TLs. One is surprised to find Susan's a good deal more psychic than he is. Good genes on the Master's side, I guess...

* The end of the Marco... (I am waiting for you to finish, guys) watchalong will be TONIGHT at 8PM BST, as decided by le Poll-o . BE THERE OR NEVER SEE ONE SAVE HIS OWN ASS BY WHINGING ABOUT GOUT!! (I hear it is quite a sight to see.)
 
* SIXABRATION!!!! Get so excited.
 
* Recently we've had some kinda dubious anon meme posts. The prompts in question are fine; some prompts are responses to others, and you're allowed to have opinions. But exercise best judgement/play well with others. Don't diss other people's prompts when you make yours. You may be anon, but this ain't who_anon. Not everything's gonna be your cuppa. It would be nice if we could avoid  'your choices are invalid, this character is this way' in the future.
 
BUT: prompts are good things to get, and thanks for all the prompts and all the responses recently. Some of them are not my cuppa, but that is cool--there are enough cuppas to go around, and I have come to terms with Cumberbatch!Master and will no longer make sulky anon meme posts about the meme (METAMEME!!). #campaignpromise #leadingbyexample #beinglessofatool
