It must be cold in space... When I saw Todd Haberkorn in his blanket, I couldn't resist ;)

I wonder if I should change the name of the tag? Matching pics or something? It is not really my intention to compare them, I just love seeing similarities.

See my first post with crafty stuff, all the things I did as a kid and my mother kept http://dieastra.livejournal.com/172522.html

While putting my stuff back into the new furniture, I found a box with stones I had painted. I should go back to that, it is so much fun, thinking about the shape and what it could be. Here are some of the ones I did (click the LJ cut to see them all):

Supergirl in the TV series Supergirl has an aunt called Astra. Why has nobody told me this? Do I need to watch the show now? I feel a bit too old for teenager superhero girls.

In a newspaper article about German composer Johann Gottlieb Nauman who lived and died in Dresden I learnt that Amadeus is the Latin form of the name Gottlieb. Amore - Liebe - Love and Deus - Gott - God https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Gottlieb_Naumann

I read an article in the newspaper about the megalodon. It lived millions of years ago. So far I knew the name only from the movie "Shark Attack III" with John Barrowman (he was young and needed the money ;) ) but hadn't realized that it had been a real shark! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalodon

In alumfelga's own words: "In "Scandal in Belgravia" Mycroft and John try to figure out Sherlock, with his brain of a scientist and a heart of a philosopher (or something like that), but a decision to become a detective. Mycroft added, "initially, he wanted to be a pirate". :)"

Thank you very much for the awesome idea! So here's Sherlock as a pirate, with eye patch and... animals. Click the LJ cut to see the pictures in more detailed version:

Seems I never before showed the Barbie chair that I upgraded? It came with the kitchen I bought which thankfully isn't as pink, but I thought the chair could look a lot better - and it does! I painted it white, and added that fabriq tape which is so awesome (which I also used on the Barbie Sofa. What do you think?

I also repainted a vase and a flower pot:

I just learnt that today is World Penguin Day. And alumfelga told me it is also National telephone day. So these pictures are double appropriate.

I did these pictures a few years ago for our annual advent calendar in the German Doctor Who & Torchwood forum. The penguins are curious about that strange blue box ;)

I hadn't even known that these existed until I stumbled about them on ebay. Apparently they are very rare and hard to get, so I am happy I got them for a relatively normal price. This is Kor (left) from "Errand of Mercy" and Kang (right) from "Day of the Dove". Both good episodes about that fighting is never going to resolve anything and that we should learn to live with each other and the differences.

That was quick, it arrived yesterday evening already. This is the scene that I loved wo much, with the many actors who all have played Hamlet. With a very special guest appearance at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khu4UbwBD_w

Also, I forgot this yesterday:

Today was the #Shakespeare400 celebration, with lots of things happening all day long. Shakespeare died on this exact day 400 years ago.

I've just watched the BBC gala, moderated by David Tennant and Catherine Tate, and with guests such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Judi Dench and lots of others. Loved the scene where all actors that have already played Hamlet couldn't decide how to pronounce "To be or not to be". And that monologue by David at the end - he really knows how to make the language alive and not complicated at all and it is just a joy to listen to him. There was music from a live orchestra and ballet and opera and rap and everything in between. Great show. And now I can't stop singing "Brush up your Shakespeare".

To join the celebration, I want to re-post the link to the Hamlet I have done some years ago, together with a friend, with action figures of Doctor Who, Torchwood and Primeval. We re-created the theatre play with David Tennant, I even changed the Tenth Doctor into Hamlet. Please look at the complete story with explanations here: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/28212.html

PS: Seems I have another Tumblr hit here as well. 68 70 73 notes already since I posted it a couple of hours ago, and a lot of re-blogs also.
