Farewell, Matt Smith

As you should know, I am a Whovian. I am a very, very big fan of the Doctor Who franchise.

In recent news, the youngest actor to ever portray the time traveling alien has resigned from the show. This of course does not mean Doctor Who is ending. This just means a new actor will take the reins from Matt Smith. 

But, Matt Smith’s portrayal of the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor was an instant favorite of mine, and with his deep emotional range and childish charm, he won the hearts of many Doctor Who fans. Some still stick with David Tennant, the man who played the tenth incarnation of the Doctor, but Matt Smith definitely did not disappoint viewers.

He singlehandedly brought back tweed jackets and suspenders and bow ties and fezzes and top hats and stetsons. Some call him the hipster Doctor, actually.

In his tenure as the Doctor, Smith had large, floppy, bouncy hair. In recent pictures, he shaved his head, a hint to many that the manchild was ready to leave.

Now, I’m not one to pay attention to celebrities, however, being that Doctor Who is one of my three favorite shows, I am inclined to be very sad about this departure. Smith took his departure very seriously and his exit was done in a respectable public fashion.

Onward to bigger and better things, Matt, stay cool.

Something I Need

I need my favorite show(s) to air already.

Top Gear UK (in my opinion, the only Top Gear that should be around) has begun airing series 19, and they don’t cease to disappoint.

Well, as you see, my favorite shows are those from the BBC. Doctor Who, Top Gear, and Sherlock compose of my Top 3 live action shows.

Sherlock, I believe, hasn’t even begun shooting the 3rd series (someone correct me if I’m wrong) due to Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson) just finishing with all the hullabaloo of The Hobbit.

So, here I am, waiting for Series 7 Part 2 of Doctor Who. My last taste of the longest running sci-fi show in history was the last episode of the series to date, which introduced a new companion for that maniacal alien.

The writers for the show are genius (and actually, also write the adapted stories for Sherlock) and pretty much fill my brain with new ideas. I need the shows back to occupy my brain!

Anyway.

Top Gear is back with a new title intro, and Doctor Who has done the same. I can’t actually find a video that showcases all the title intros for Top Gear, but I have found one for Doctor Who. So, enjoy. (Don’t mind this space. This space right here, within the confines of these parentheses, are for the future embed link that I shall procure for all of you in the future that showcases the title intros for Top Gear)

Doctor Who title intro (All)

I dislike schoolwork, but I’m looking at schools.

I apologize to any of you and all of you who are readers of my posts, specifically. Due to my load of schoolwork from AP classes, I have not had a chance to fulfill my duties as a contributing co-editor. I’ve been keeping updated with the blog, but need to make some edits on grammatical/spelling errors, not like anyone cares. I love you all.

Anyway, the point of this post was to inform people of the colleges I wish to attend and to pose a question, which will be asked at the end of the post and to be answered by you, the readers, in the comment section below.

I’m really looking towards two schools, both in the New York City area.
— School of Visual Arts (SVA),  Manhattan
— Pratt Institute, Brooklyn (with locations in Manhattan and Utica)

another college I may consider is the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I might consider FIT, but that’s a very slim possibility.

The question(s) I wish to ask is(are)… Should I be following my dreams to become a graphic designer?
