Bingewatching … Doctor Who

When it comes to Doctor Who I’m very much like Sheldon Cooper: Source: ShitSheldonCooperSays on tumblr 😉 Despite being a cult series since the 60s in England (and in fact the longest running sci-fi show of all times), the Doctor was really practically unknown in Germany until the early 90s, when I saw my “first […]

Sunday songs from my favorite German voice: Max Raabe

Something like the opening credits from a Bond movie in reverse, as it was on during the final scene. It sounds totally crazy […]

My entry for #CannibalCouture …

I had so much energy left today that I finally realised my Alana-Mason-cosplay for @Tattle_Crime ‘s #CannibalCouture contest. Tiny Hannibal – try to spot him – gives Alana a really bad dream here: she’s suddenly sporting Mason’s haircut (and somehow gained 30 pounds *lol*) and has to feed Will’s dogs from her cheek 😉 I […]
