if you ever think mythology is boring or serious business or whatever shit
just remember that cerberus, the hell-hound and guard dog of the underworld, comes from the root indo-european word ḱerberos, which evolved into the greek word kerberos, which got changed to cerberus when it went from greek to latin
ḱerberos means “spotted”
hades, lord of the dead, literally fucking named his pet dog spot
Here I am singing with students from Lansdowne School in Sarnia City Hall. Sorry if I was a little flat.
DID HUGH DANCY LITERALLY GET HIS WIFE TO GO AROUND TAKING PICTURES OF CARPET WITH HIM THIS IS THE SILLIEST THING I’VE EVER HEARD OF IN MY LIFE
Ah Jason, he is a total legend. Yes, our first ever meeting in the lobby of a Belfast hotel did start by him rugby tackling me to the floor yelling “WIFEY!!”

okay im done with the beard jokes
so you know how police boxes used to be everywhere in london and then they just sort of stopped being a thing
well in 1996 they tried to revive the idea and make a load of ‘high tech’ police boxes, except the idea never took off and so now there’s just one police box left which is just there to attract whovian tourists
so when the guy in The Bells of St John said this
he was actually talking about this lonely tardis at earls court station
My first trip to London, we stayed at a hotel right near this tube station. I haven’t been able to remember the name of the station or the hotel, and I can’t find the picture I took at the time, so until now I thought I had just imagined it.
Reporting directly from Neil Gaiman’s blog: Good Omens, the magnificent spawn of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is being adapted for television by Terry Jones (Monty Python) and Gavin Scott (Small Soldiers). The producer will be Rod Brown, who already lead the BBC versions of Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather and The Colour of Magic. He did a great job capturing the fantastic and gritty ambientation of Discworld’s characters, and I am sure that this coming in 2013 BBC miniseries will be up to the fan base expectations.
And not a moment too soon.
