Happy Valentine’s Day.
Thanks for joining me for a big week, and going forward. The response to the end of TARDIS Eruditorum has been incredibly gratifying, and I apologize for anyone I didn’t reach back to and thank for the kind words. They’ve all meant a lot.
Going forward, A Brief Treatise on the Rules of Thrones will run on Mondays as an odd sort of countdown, up to the fifth season premiere. On Wednesdays, comics reviews in the mid-days, and I think the episode commentaries from the Eruditorum Kickstarter. So The Rescue Episode One might be a fun thing to watch this weekend. On Fridays, The Last War in Albion will rumble on into the night, and on Saturdays we shall as always shoot the shit, as they say.
This is all assuming the Patreon, currently at $267, remains over $200 a week, with it currently funding A Brief Treatise on the Rules of Thrones. That seems pretty secure, but $60 of it is down to a small number of particularly generous patrons, so please, if you can spare a buck a week, it means a lot. I also just opened voting on the monthly bonus post, so if you want to be a rascal and, like, back for a week, vote, pay for Monday’s post, then cancel your pledge, that’s totally fair. This blog and the monthly book royalties basically pay the rent, and it’s greatly appreciated. Even a little bit helps.
Speaking of books, the Logopolis book, now called Recursive Occlusion, is a hair’s breadth away. Kickstarter backers who think you’ve pre-ordered a copy, please do check your Kickstarter messages, there’s a Google form to fill out to get your book.
So, since it is still the big event of the week, I’m curious. What was your favorite TARDIS Eruditorum entry? And, since everybody on the planet inexplicably feels the need to disclaim that they don’t agree with everything I say (as though someone was under any illusion that anyone would agree with everything I say, least of all myself), where did I most infuriate you? Are you an old-timer, like that guy on GallifreyBase this week who keeps going on about how I unfairly hold the past to the ethical standards of the presen when talking about racism in The Celestial Toymaker? Are you a battle-scarred flame warrior from the great Big-Ass Science debate of The Masque of Mandragora? Did I just disappoint you when I was rude to someone? Or were you with me right up until I said Kill the Moon was brilliant?
Actually, wait, just TARDIS Eruditorum. My passion for Kill the Moon is off limits until the Capaldi book comes out. (I’m not even thinking about that book until it’s clear when Capaldi or Moffat are leaving.)
Seriously, though, thank you for all the kind words and for making me a part of your Internet day. It’s a lovely way to make a living, nattering on to you lot.
(Sorry to say that I’ve had to turn comments off on this entry, as it was weirdly prone to spam from spellcasters.)
