Proof of my loyalty

I am at work today, doing my duty, despite the fact that open casting calls for extras for DT's new movie are going on in Portland right now. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is!

I mentioned this to my boss, to let him know just how loyal I am, and he said, "Why in the world are you still here?"

In other news, this came up on my husband's FB "On This Day": his status from one year ago today.


Sleep No More's creation process:

Mark Gatiss: Moffat, I just can't think of a monster for this episode.

Steven Moffat: Try, Mark! Plumb your brain. I'm out of ideas myself, having just cast Arya Stark as Arya Stark in the last episode. Took all my imagination.

Gatiss: What about... a cyborg race of killing machines, real competent and generally effective monsters?

Moffat: Mmmm... not feeling it.

Gatiss: What about... some kind of wolf thing, REALLY fast, and with HUGE teeth and MIND LASERS!

Moffat: Mm. Fast. Not something I think the show needs. I mean, angels were fast but we always had the characters look at them to stop them, so they were really slow.

Gatiss: I... mm. Well, I dunno then.

Gatiss Daughter: Daddy I have stuff in my eye!

Gatiss: That's just eye-sleep, sweetie. You can brush it out.

Moffat: Mark.... MARK MARK MARK THAT'S IT! MONSTERS MADE OF EYE GOO.

Gatiss: HOLY CRAP MOFFAT YES YES THAT IS WHAT WE WILL MAKE!

Moffat: And now I can make Capaldi do a speech on how holy and sacrosanct sleep is, he will hate it, hahaha I love making him say stupid things.


And then me just thinking out loud...


Ever notice that men in movies have no chest hair? I've noticed it before on characters that are supposed to be Mr. Universe bodybuilder types, such as Rambo, Schwarzeneggar characters, and Thor, but it seemed really weird to me when the non-studmuffin Stephen Strange was smooth, especially since his hands weren't steady enough to shave; maybe he carries cans of Nair when he travels? Unless BC really is that hairless.

Is bodily hair that unattractive? I thought maybe it was an American or a Hollywood aesthetic, but some British shows do the same thing (though again, maybe Matt Smith is also hairless). (Side note: the only two times that I've seen DT topless in a show, he had hair; maybe he refuses to shave?)

No idea why I'm thinking about this - it's like the only thing from Doctor Strange that has stuck with me since I saw the movie. Weird.
