Vincent and the Doctor

Let me sum up:
The Doctor taking Vincent Van Gogh to see his work on display

(Couldn't get the clip, but it's in this lovely vid):

Let me splain:

Sorry! Naughty! It's been a while. I've been in the magical void that is dissertating. But I handed off a draft to my advisor last week. Hopefully he will greenlight my defense soon, and geeky celebrations will ensue!

I had a friend suggest posting some Doctor Who goodness a while back. When it comes to tears and Doctor Who, my dilemma is an embarassment of riches. I've just been having trouble picking. But we recently watched this episode, and it seemed appropriate fodder for posting.

I just started a job at a mental health center. I've had a framed "Starry Night" for years and had been toying with the idea of taking it to work. Van Gogh painted it while at Saint-Rémy asylum, which seemed appropriate. Maybe too appropriate. But this episode tipped'll probably always be a staple of my office from now on.

P.S. Enjoy the geeky musical stylings of TheBrand6011!
