Kylie + Dr. Who = massive gay/geek-out explosion

Isaac Mendez' "Burning Man" painting from HeroesThis is what happens when somebody puts the words "Olivia Newton-John" and "Battlestar Galactica" in the same sentence within earshot - I explode in a massive conflagration of gayness and geekiness.

The same catastrophe could happen in DC when I see the new Dr. Who episode featuring Kylie Minogue:

"In a Can't Get You Out Of My Tardis-tastic development, Kylie Minogue was very recently overheard by a mole at a party confirming that she is definitely going to be appearing in a future episode of 'Doctor Who'.

Now, it's hardly a secret that 'Doctor Who' has a large gay following (and no, we don't mean a flamboyant equivalent of the Comic Book Guy), or that the papers have been speculating that the teeny-tiny, cancer-surviving, boyfriend-shedding popstrel will be appearing on the show, but this is the first time there's been definite proof, and all from the brave singing budgie's own Botoxed mouth.

And what forced her to make her appearance on the show? A personal visit from Davros? A chilly encounter with the Ice Warriors? An unfortunate incident with a Dalek and its plunger? No, it's all to please her hotpant-wielding stylist, William Baker."

This is what happens when you download too much porn from the Internets:
PC crash
It is possible that this PC may have held the DNA sequnce of the infamous Goatman of Maryland.

Today I got up at an ungodly hour to participate in the International Migratory Bird Day Bird Count (Census) at The Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center in Beltsville, Maryland. I took many pictures.
National Agricultural Library (NAL)
Here is the horrid architecture of The National Agricultural Library (NAL) nearby.

The 'green' tree swallow, which nests in tree cavities or even bluebird next boxes. Its iridescent green color shifts from blue to green depending on the light situations. In utter darkness, were you able to see this bird, its colored portions would appear black. The color is from refraction, not pigment, sorta like how glacial ice appears blue.

A scarlet tananger, differentiated from the summer tananger by its black wings and tail:
Scarlet Tananger
A wasp or a hornet, I'm not sure, but it was very big:
Honeybee populations are falling at an alarming rate. It’s very Children of Men (to quote Eric), but with bees. Bees perform an important service in pollinating agricultural crops. It is possible that every time you text "OMG" on your cell phone, a honeybee dies.
Honeybee Hive
At the very least, I die a little each time, especially if you text message on the dance floor.

Most of the hives were vacant.

As someone one who is currently watching Series/season three, I can tell youthat she is not making an appearence in Season/series three.

Jack Harkness is returning in the final 3 episodes of this season.

Season/series 4 has even yet to be announced (if there will be one that is)

Most likely if anything she will make an appearence on the Spin off "Torchwood" in Season two. Also the so called "rumors" could also be that in her last concert, most of the perfomances were based on Doctor who, with cybermen and a Tardis.. you can find it on you tube.

The New companion who is "replacing" Rose Tyler is 10 times better than her ;-)...just sayin

Aren't you just a little gay beehive of information.

Tim Sale is color blind? Love his stuff, new respect, all around.

Hmm, that National Agricultural Libray looks somewhat familiar. Have the Borg opened an architectural firm nearby?

Season 4 has been confirmed for next year:

Series Four confirmed

The show will go on, according to Russell T Davies.

Doctor Who will return for a fourth series in 2008, executive producer and lead writer Russell T Davies confirmed last night.

"Series four is officially existing," he announced at the launch of Series Three in London. "I'm very excited, but we have known for ages."

Series Three of Doctor Who starts on Saturday 31 March 2007

The cellphone thing has pretty much been discounted (the study had flaws.)

The May 12 entry:
"Kylie Minogue has apparently confirmed that she will be appearing in the Christmas episode of Doctor Who.

As reported on Outpost Gallifrey last month, there were rumours that the Australian pop star was being lined up for a role in this year's Christmas special. The rumours were later denied by Russell T Davies in the BBC staff magazine Ariel.

However, when asked by InStyle magazine if the reports were true, Minogue replied: 'Yes. My gay husband [her stylist, William Baker], is so excited about it! But I'm not going to play a villain.'"

If the "study had flaws" then the point wasn't proven by the study, but the theory could still be correct.

Regardless, cell phones kill me a little inside, and I'll stand by that, regardless of the contrarian chorus.
