If you thought the season finale of Doctor Who was bad
try watching the last half an hour first
and the first 15 minutes last
I don’t know how to make sense of anything
Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.
My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This…
I would like to commence all over again and have John Green give the address.
Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: The Challenge
The Glowing Spider-Worms of New Zealand
For over one hundred years, millions of tourists have flocked to the ancient limestone Waitomo Caves on New Zealand’s North Island, where a stunning species of fungus gnat called Arachnocampa luminosa live.
Unique to New Zealand and Australia, they are found in caves, grottoes, and other sheltered places. Arachnocampa means ‘spider-worm,’ as the gnat is known for the way their larvae hang strong vertical silk threads from their underground habitats. Since the larvae are luminescent, the thousands of tiny threads light up cave ceilings like a starry sky.

So, when it goes “lay your weary head to rest”, everyone noticed that they showed all the decapitations from this season, right? Because I laughed.
My roommate came home during the last 5 minutes. She’s only on season 5, so she vacated the room until it was over. When the klaxon went off in the bat cave, I started laughing hysterically, because what else can you do at that point.
After I came out, mumbling about how it was catastrophic, she asked me, “But it was funny-catastrophic, right?”
I’m so looking forward to watching the season 5 finale with her. Take THAT, funny-catastrophic.
While closing at work tonight, I found a squashed worm on the floor. My boss says “Eat it”, so instead I pick it up and -imitating a certain Supernatural star- say “I’m not going to eat it. I’m going to wear it as a wormstache.” No one thought it was funny except me.
But it was. It was funny.
It was gold.
I even said “If it’s good enough for Misha Collins, it’s good enough for me.”
I guess it wasn’t good enough for me.
You seen your opportunities, and you took ‘em.
It was gold. You’re not wrong. Even if no one got the joke, you had to do it. The opening was too good. I’m more than a little jealous, actually.
