My eyes have just about recovered from watching Gavin Henson 'dance' to Muse's 'Uprising' on Strictly Come Dancing last week. Painful it was, my precious. The best thing I can say is that at least it distracted me from the artistic interpretation of the song from the singers and band. Oh, my poor eyes and ears.
This is from an interview with Matt Smith by The Times online:
“My poems? I wrote poems about the Wars of the Roses. I was reading a lot of Ted Hughes, Season Songs. They were awful poems. Oh God! ‘Hands outstretched to the open road . . .’ Just awful!”
He wrote poems about the Wars of the Roses. HE WROTE POEMS ABOUT THE WARS OF THE ROSES. I mean, how adorable is THAT? (Oh all right, probably not that adorable unless you're me.) He's officially my favourite Doctor now. *hearts* I don't care if they were awful poems. (They can't be worse than my Piers Gaveston one, Matt. Really. They can't. 'Blood stains your murderers' hands' is a lot more shit than 'hands outstretched to the open road.') I want to read them. I want to know EXACTLY what they were about!
And now I'll shut up and go and get a nice cup of calming tea.
