I've been thinking a bit about #deltagreen and I've come to the conclusion that it's too optimistic. Specifically, I don't think it fully comes to grips with The Problem of Evil. And that's maybe a fault that goes back to Lovecraft, but I think the RPG format makes it worse 1/n
So let's think about the basic set up: #Cthulhu is real. Governments do what governments do. Life continues, until it doesn't.

But. Nuclear and biological weapons. Global warming. Genocide. The use of religion to justify vast destruction of human lives, violent and otherwise.
What's fucked in the world is fucked in ways which are really hard to capture neatly in the #Cthulhu framework; he's a pre-nuclear character, for the most part, and the human race hadn't shown its true colors yet, in The Bad Places of the Mid 20th Century. We can do much worse.

#DianaRigg's 81st birthday today. Although it's fair to say no picture will do her justice, there are some very fabulous photos out there of her.
The woman can accessorise with a bird and still look amazing. #DianaRigg
Not the biggest fan of lace, but here's #DianaRigg in a ridiculous but beautiful jumpsuit.

[THREAD] What if #DoctorWho was a French TV show instead of an English one? Which actors would have played the Doctor over the years?

Well... Let's get into it!
First Doctor: Jean Marais.

Famous for classic roles on the big screen (Orphée, Beauty and the Beast, Fantômas...), he was a great actor, stuntman and was able to play several different roles in one single movie using makeup.

His Doctor would have been more physical!
Second Doctor: Louis de Funès

Classic French comedy as its finest. He was able to make an entire audience laugh for several minutes without a word (like Chaplin). He and Troughton had the same energy.

I'm an autism researcher and my husband @bfletcherwatson is a theatre researcher.

We've been trying to work out how to turn all the attention around #puppetgate to some positive effect, and so...

here follows a wee thread of autistic artists we've come across
@bfletcherwatson Disclaimer: this is just a collection of people who are working in the arts, or doing art in their spare time.

It's obviously not comprehensive - please add your own profiles and suggestions at the bottom

(and give us a few minutes first to get all the tweets out...)
@bfletcherwatson First up @SoniaBoue who first drew our attention to the #puppetgate issue

They are a multi-form artist based in Oxford - and a brilliant blogger incidentally

1. OK..<EPIC THREAD> on making the Prowler 'Elephant' noise for #Spiderverse and other ELECTRONIC NOISES. I did some sessions with a good friend of mine Brian Dougans who has an amazing collection of electronic gear. You might recognise this sound...
2. We used a huge array of electronics both old - like the EMS Synthi (well known to diehard #DrWho fans) - and new - like the FSOL Digitana SX-1 (which Brian helped design!), through pedals and things to jam out a whole bunch of crazy noises...
3. The unstable and analogue nature of the gear would create a really unique and menacing sound that cut through like nothing else. The most recognisable of these is probably the Prowler sound which you can hear on this track here: open.spotify.com/track/0p4G0l12…
