Fun Things To Do Over Your Weekend

(1) Sign this petition to have the United States recognize the KKK as a domestic terrorism organization. (It is shameful that we haven’t done this already.)

(2) Do a few of these things suggested by the Brady Campaign. They’re fighting the good fight against the US’s gun problem, against a coalition of weapons dealers who are hell-bent on making it easier to sell things.

(3) Pick up the facts about the death of Sandra Bland, who was jailed for three days because she failed to signal a lane change and then found mysteriously dead in her cell. Be horrified. Look for local protests. If you’re in the Massachusetts area, there’s one in Boston this Tuesday.

(4) Read this essay, written from experience, about how medical care is frequently icky and uncomfortable. And don’t let people demonize Planned Parenthood on the grounds that, in the process of providing medical care, they do things that are icky and uncomfortable.

(5) Ask your representative to co-sponsor the Save Oak Flat Act. An eleventh-hour addition to the end of a “must-pass” military spending bill traded 2400 acres of Arizona federal land to a foreign mining corporation — including a sacred site for local Apache tribe members. Because why would the US waste an opportunity to screw over Native Americans for profit?

(6) On a brighter note, celebrate that workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation is officially illegal across the country. Not even because of a new law — but because the EEOC ruled that it falls under the jurisdiction of the 1964 Civil Rights Act! (Because you can’t discriminate based on sex, and we’re finally acknowledging that that’s what’s happening if you’d fire a woman for dating a woman, but wouldn’t fire a man for the same reason.)

(7) All of the above is US-based stuff, so here’s something that’s hopefully doable anywhere: browse the free-to-download section on the Big Finish website, and help yourself to whatever looks good.

Doctor Who Series 8 approaches

New teaser for the next season of Doctor Who…and I’m kinda discouraged.

It was encouraging to see Twelve getting an older-looking body, with a style reminiscent of some of the earlier Doctors. But partly because I was hoping it was a hint that they were going to take a more old-fashioned approach to the writing, too. Ditch the “every season gets a narrower and narrower focus on the Doctor himself and his personal importance” trend along with the “every Doctor gets younger” one.

More aliens and mysteries and diplomatic shenanigans and adventures, please! Less of the Doctor navel-gazing and fretting about whether he is a Good Person. There’s only so much you can do with that, and by this point I assure you it has all been done.

Doctor who? Doctor Capaldi, apparently

Twelfth Doctor announced!

On the one hand…yeah, it’s another white guy. In spite of the fact that the promo stuff was carefully and visibly gender-neutral, so it’s not like TPTB in general are in denial that they have options. (Moffat’s specific dickishness notwithstanding.) And according to Neil Gaiman, at least one black actor was offered the part, but turned it down. Progress inches along in the background.

On the other hand, he’s apparently the oldest person to be cast in the part since William Hartnell! He really does look like a Classic Who Doctor, too, at least to me. Hopefully it’ll shake up some things we’ve seen in the New Who dynamic, particularly the “hot young romantic hero that all the lovely ladies have to fall for” trope.

A few more stray Who links:

For those New Whovians who don’t have time for Classic Who: A short summary of each Doctor.” Accurate.

The plans to build yourself a TARDIS cabinet! I want one. No, scratch that, I want lots.
