I love this episode SFM.

Steven Moffat, of course, is generally recognized to be the show’s reigning champion Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant, and it’s his fantastic, Hugo award-winning Blink that usually gets the credit for “scariest episode of the new series”.  I love Blink, and I absolutely think it’s one of the best episodes of the show to date…but when it comes to “scariest episode”, Midnight is the one that does it for me.

The claustrophobic setting.  The perfect Hitchcockian execution.  The acting the woman who plays Sky does with little more than her eyes.

The “Midnight Entity” is one of the most terrifying monsters in the show’s 45-year history, partly because we are given next to no information about it.  We never see it (does it even have any kind of physical form out on the planet’s surface?).  We don’t know if there are more of them.  We don’t know what it truly wants.  All we’re given glimpses of is an ice-cold, chillingly alien intelligence as it learns from the people on the ship in one of the creepiest manners possible.

The tension that builds as the entity slowly finds its footing within its host, first repeating the Doctor’s words, then speaking simultaneously with him, while in the background the other passengers grow more and more paranoid and hostile…

And then.  And then

It mind-rapes the Doctor.

Our hero, a 9XX year-old Time Lord who is (among other things) an incredibly powerful telepath, can do nothing as this thing snaps the trap shut on his mind and then forces him to egg the mob on into tossing him out an airlock. (David Tennant does plenty of academy-award level acting with his eyes in this scene, too.  The look on his face while he’s being dragged toward the airlock while being forced to repeat the words “Do it, do it now, faster…” oh my god.)

Bottom line, ladies, gentlemen, and variations thereupon: this is a brilliant little episode, easily one of my Top Ten favorites, and it doesn’t get nearly the love it deserves.  Watch it.

Oh, and by the way?

Astronomers discover planet made of diamond

(Reuters) - Astronomers have spotted an exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard.

The new planet is far denser than any other known so far and consists largely of carbon. Because it is so dense, scientists calculate the carbon must be crystalline, so a large part of this strange world will effectively be diamond.

You’re welcome.

Eyes in the Darkness

For the longest time, I did not believe this photograph wasn’t ‘shopped.  It isn’t.  Meet Planetary Nebula MyCn18.

Look at it, staring at you from across time and space.

Judging you.

You Cannot Grasp the True Form

Le bummin’ around the internet, coasting through beautiful space pictures HOLY FUCK GIYGAS.

asdsjghfgdsak;

So a few days ago I made this post.  Just horf dorf assing around, getting the hang of Tumblr, sharing my random bullshit fandom thoughts at 4 in the morning, as one does. 

And then I find out about this:

Junji Ito actually for real drew TTGL fanart.  Spirals, spirals everywhere.

I love the internet.

(Tip o’ Lordgenome’s eldritch chesthair to Tumblrite JunjiFrito for pointing me at this.)

what

Modern geocentrism is the belief held by some extant groups that Earth is the center of the universe as described by classical geocentric models. This belief is often based on Biblical verses. This belief is directly opposed to the fact that the Sun is essentially the gravitational center of the solar system, and that the location of the Earth is not privileged.

In three polls conducted in 1996 and 1999, 19% of Britons, 18% of Americans, and 16% of Germans said that they believed the Sun orbits the Earth.[1]

Weird phobia confession: tanning beds fucking terrify me.  I have a deep-seated horror of sunburn (I suffered a second-degree one from the back of my neck to the backs of my calves after a swimming trip to a river in the Sierras where we forgot sunscreen, was in agony for almost two weeks), and the idea of being trapped in a tanning bed has actually given me literal nightmares.

Fridge Horror: A Thought Exercise

Here’s an experiment for you, fellow anime and manga fans.

I’m certain a great deal of you are familiar with this show, it having shot to memetic status almost as soon as it aired and hit the internets back in 2007.

I’m certain a great deal of you are also familiar with horror artist/writer Junji Ito, whose works have also attained memetic status on the Web.

Now

I dare you, fellow Tumblrites, to read this manga:

And then go back and rewatch this show:

I guarantee you, you will be watching an entirely different series.

I love this.  The simple, stark style, the coloring, the progressive change in expression…brr.  Subtly-executed nightmare fuel is totally one of my (asexual) kinks, and this picture sets it off beautifully.

Ia!  Ia! 

This is one of my favorite animated shorts on the internet.  Love the style, the sound work, and pretty much everything about it.

Look, Guys! Exciting New Science Developments!

NASA Planning One-Way Manned Mission to Mars

Oct 27, 2010 – 5:18 PM
(Oct. 27) — We are going to Mars and not coming back.

At a recent event in San Francisco, NASA Ames Research Center Director Pete Worden introduced the Hundred Year Starship initiative, a project to embark on a one-way mission from Earth to Mars by 2030 and permanently settle the red planet.

Image of the Day: The Ghost Snake of the Milky Way

A cosmic snake appears to slither across the plane of our Milky Way galaxy in this image from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. The snake-like object  located about 11,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius is actually the core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems and may be harboring beastly stars in the process of forming.
