I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope


Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.

Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication. 
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.

This would be an amazing charity auction piece!

The new doctor

His début episode last night has been met with mixed reactions from my friends and the blognetosphere, though the press have been very enthusiastic. I suspect this is because the press don’t want to be on the wrong side of history. Let me explain with a description of a certain Doctor Who episode, taken straight from Wikipedia:

The newly regenerated Doctor, suffering side effects from his regeneration, crash lands the TARDIS in London. He exits to meet [ancillary characters], and collapses in front of them. They take him to [ancillary character’s house] […] and they put him to bed.

Now if you weren’t paying attention, this could have been a loose description of Capaldi’s premier episode, but it of course is not, it is Tennant’s.

Do you recall how opinion was mixed about Tennant after that episode? Viewers were vexed at how different this doctor was (he killed the Sycorax leader, in a swordfight!) but Tennant found his feet quickly and became the nation’s favourite.

I really enjoyed the premier, despite - or perhaps because of - how, in Capaldi’s words, the Doctor is “more alien than he’s been in a while.”.
