Let’s Pretend we don’t Exist

It has been a routine week. No exams, nothing to look forward to, still having to work. I was feeling ill today so i took the day off and spent the morning aimlessly walking around my house. Playing Peggle. I love Peggle. Whilst half-listening to itunes, i discovered Of Montreal. I don’t tend to listen to the music on my brother’s computer as he is an indie fucktard and it mainly consists of Modest Mouse (who can sometimes be okay) and The Smiths (who i randomly hate, i think i shouldn’t then i give them another listen only to start hating them all over again). So i was surprised i like Of Montreal. But how could i not like a band who covered ‘Spanish Dance Troupe’ by Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci (wow! Americans who have heard Welsh music!)? Who have cute, funny, yet sometimes very dark and twisty lyrics and weird music videos? So new music brightened my day.

I forgot to blog about the recent death of Cyd Charisse. Yeah i didn’t know the name either, i was sufficiently intrigued by the headline “the dancer who’s legs were insured for $10 million” to read the article which turned out to be her obituary. The reason why this is of any importance to me is that she was the “mysterious lady in green” i used to wonder about. She played Gene Kelly’s dance partner in the Broadway Melody sequence of Singin’ in the Rain which was my favourite childhood film. It wasn’t a talking role, according to the article Cyd just couldn’t act, but i remember being completely in awe of her and her slinky outfit and very short hair (though i personally believe it looked better long) and she had a cigarette holder but also looked stunning in a wedding dress. Plus, she had those insanely cool bodyguards who flipped coins.

I also recently found out there is a small section in the Dalek article at Wikipedia dedicated to the Daleks’ role in pornography. Intriguing. I can see why people are attracted to Daleks in this way. They are pretty awesome. I am loving the quote from Tim Hancock (no idea who he is, a BBC rep. i guess) “The reason the Daleks are still the most sinister thing in the universe is because they do not make things like porn. They weren’t ever intended to be sexual creatures. It’s simple, Daleks do not do porn”.  I don’t think many people who watch Doctor Who also watch porn (if we consider the show also has a lot of very young viewers, the porn people probably all watch Torchwood instead). But I personally believe lots of sinister villains have probably starred in porn flicks. If not someone should fill that niche in the porn market. Most villains are too ugly, evil or both to attract a mate and therefore are probably filled with sadistic longing. Or just to be held.  I believe the Doctor as some point goes on about them not being able to touch, to feel. Maybe some kind of weird thing could happen between Daleks and Cybermen. Think of all the awesome banter they would have.

(I probably wouldn’t have typed all that randomness about Doctor Who porn if it wasn’t slightly late at night and i wasn’t feeling very hyper. But still. If the Friday Night Project, now The Sunday Night Project, can mention Who porn than so can i. Zoë is always saying i look like Justin Lee Collins. Though they were talking more porn involving David Tennant. That is yet another niche in the porn market just begging to be filled)
