Merry Christmas Tumblr! I love you all!
“How the Doctor Puppet Saved Christmas”
It’s finally here! This stop motion Christmas special is a true labor of love made in Alisa’s tiny Brooklyn apartment during her free time. She wants you all to know that she wrote the script and made the snowman puppet weeks before the BBC announced that the official Christmas special would be called “The Snowmen.” She swears that no real TARDIS was used during production.
We hope you enjoy it. Happy Wholidays!
Hey everyone! I dropped some hints earlier about the project Alisa and I are working on, and now I want to give you a proper sneak-peek.
We’re making an animated Christmas special! It’s the biggest project we’ve undertaken for this blog, and we really hope you all like it. The set has been taking up a good portion of Alisa’s apartment for the last couple of weeks, and animation is finally nearing completion. It will premiere the weekend before Christmas!
Are you in the holiday mood yet? We sure are!
Happy belated Thanksgiving, Tumblr! I forgot to bring my camera to the actual feast last night, so instead I documented myself enjoying round one of the leftovers today.
I am so thankful to have over 6,500 fantastic followers, and am grateful for all your kind words over the past few months. Thanks everyone!
If you haven’t guessed yet, we took a lot of photos during our UK trip. Of course it was completely justified because there’s just so much gorgeous stuff there! After exploring Edinburgh, we headed South again to Cardiff, Wales. I’ve had some memorable adventures there before, but this was a pleasantly uneventful visit… for once.
Our first stop was at the beautiful Cardiff Castle, or Castell Caerdydd. Outside there’s a wall covered with animal sculptures, so naturally I befriended the bear. Inside we saw a keep from the 12th century, a tower from the 15th century, and a mansion (mostly) from the 19th century. The entire history of Cardiff can be found inside those walls. From atop the keep I could see modern Cardiff, including Millennium Stadium and other big buildings closer to the bay. Of course that’s where we headed next.
Last weekend Alisa and I traveled North to the village of Sleepy Hollow. It was pleasantly spooky and decorated for the occasion. We walked through town then crossed the Pocantino River close to the original site of the Headless Horseman Bridge from Washington Irving’s famous story. Then we headed into Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Thousands of early New York State residents are buried there, including Washington Irving himself. Nice fellow. The trees were beautiful.
If we get any trick or treaters later I’ll be handing out Jelly Babies. Happy Halloween!
If you’ve been watching the news you may have heard about the
Stormageddon Frankenstorm heading for the East Coast of America tonight. Alisa and I are not in an evacuation zone, so we’re prepared and are staying put in central Brooklyn. Keep dry and safe, East Coast! Remember to get extra water, non-perishable food, batteries, torches and a radio, and to put them in a safe place. Also, keep your mobile phones charged!
Oh yeah, and tomorrow is Alisa’s birthday too. Last year there was a freak ice storm on her birthday, so she’s decided to stop having birthdays after this year. :(
I almost forgot – I still have pictures from my UK trip to share with you all! While in Edinburgh, Scotland I heard about the amazing views of the city and ocean from Arthur’s Seat, which is an extinct volcano! So cool. It was a rather steep climb, so Alisa and I took the TARDIS to the top. The view did not disappoint, but I found the wind to be quite bothersome. Next stop - Wales!
New York Comic Con was quite the experience. I ran into several dozen snappy dressers and oddly enough, some TARDIS and Dalek impersonators. What a strange day.
