Peter: So here's my idea. In like 2 to 3 years, right?
Me: ...I don't know.

"When Beethoven passed away, he was buried in a churchyard. A couple days later, the town drunk was walking through the cemetery and heard some strange noise coming from the area where Beethoven was buried. Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it. The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming from the grave. Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate. When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said, “Ah, yes, that’s Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, being played backwards.” He listened a while longer, and said, “There’s the Eighth Symphony, and it’s backwards, too. Most puzzling.” So the magistrate kept listening; “There’s the Seventh, the Sixth, the Fifth.” Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate; he stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, “My fellow citizens, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s just Beethoven decomposing.”"

Just saw Peter, and we talked about how it may well be the last time we see each other for a year or more.

One of the most painful things is having been a huge part of two little boys’ lives from ages 9 months to nearly four and then not being allowed to see them or talk to them. I wonder if they even remember me.

embroidering handkerchiefs as thank-you-for-baptizing-me gifts for my pastors & watching Veggie Tales with my teddy bear and dog while sipping water out of my “die Sendung mit der Maus” water bottle, texting with my boyfriend, and wearing leggings + dog socks + a huge t-shirt of my uncle’s

yup

this is me :)

Press play!

Still the best theme in regards to how it was made, how it’s one of the first pieces of electronic music ever, and how it’s (basically) the same theme still, 50 years later.

Incredible.

oh this made me tear up. I LOVE YOU DOCTOR WHO
