BEDA: April 26, 2010

Once again, I've started typing a BEDA blog without any sort of subject to write about.

EDIT: I finished typing the blog and I just wanted to let you know that it does get better. You may now return to your regularly scheduled blog from my now past.

But that's the thing about blogs vs vlogs. It's rare to start a vlog with no idea and have it be entertaining. With a blog, if you don't like the direction it's heading, you can delete chunks, retype it, or completely start from scratch with little more than three clicks of a keyboard. With a vlog, time and preparation goes into filming and editing and when it's a situation like mine where I travel to a different computer to edit, there's not much re-shooting I can do if I don't like the way something turned out.

Now, as logic and my previous explanation dictates, I could delete that entire paragraph. But I don't because then you wouldn't know to what I would be referring to. The same goes with the edit that I will put at the near-beginning about how the blog will get better.

But Travis, I already read that part about the blog getting better.

Yes, appreciated reader, but I haven't typed it yet. You're perceiving time in a linear fashion.

As some of you may be able to tell by the subject matter, I watched Doctor Who today and I was trying to understand all of the plot-holes in the Matt Smith Doctor and River Song story. A lot of things are either a) huge errors, or b) unable to be explained yet. I'll get into this later but to see where I'm coming from, the sonic screwdriver. Her's was blue. His new one is green. How's that workout in the end?

Anyway, back to the subject at hand.

If I'm able to go back and edit anything I wanted to in this blog, it could be asked why I don't just fit the model of the blog to explain everything I want to say and every edit I wanted to make.

Well, that would just be boring, wouldn't it?


  1. I really don't know why this one is green in the first place. Maybe it just... Got blue again? I mean, it doesn't have to be the same sonic screwdriver...

    But you have to remember, Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey. She is his future, and like she said, he keeps appearing in the wrong order. They've only met twice in his perspective, but it's obvious that she's met him many times, or even traveled with him.

    Although I don't like that "I don't want to end up in jail" line one bit... It makes me worry about River. A LOT.

  2. Edit: That was really my comment, but I was logged into my collab channel's account. I'm not going to go back and edit it though. You know, linear timelines and all. Plus, I'm lazy :P
