Dr Who and the blog post of doom.

You can tell that I'm supposed to be something important because I'm writing a new post. One thing you can say about Murdocal is that the height of her motivation comes when she has a big deadline approaching. Anyway, here I am and I'm not going to be able to achieve my goal until I...

The Paperboy (2012)

The story of The Paperboy's world premiere is now infamous within the world of film.
