i was looking for a photoset like this but i didn't find it so i did it


So this is long overdue, but I went to Japan a few weeks back and one of my missions was to taste as many of the iconic kurobas foods as possible! Sadly I couldn’t find the triple delicacy Iberian pork cutlet sandwich with caviar, foie gras, and truffles. :(

Also lucky pencils are not food, but I wanted to show them off because I did everything in my power to get those nodayo. Man proposes, God disposes.

Photo captions have more info!

Also I took a heck-ton of photos of the Kurobas exhibit at J-World (I was pretty much the only person there…? And I played the laundry game 3 times wow much awkward) so I’ll probably make another photoset soon..!


Behind the Scenes of Blink

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM 384:

Benjamin Cook: “You had just one day on set with David Tennant. Did he live up to expectations?”

Carey Mulligan:  “You can’t not get on with David, cos he’s so brilliant.  He’s annoyingly nice.  When you’re acting with him, he’s so engaging.  He gives 100% on every single take, whether it’s a wide shot or a close-up.  He makes everything look so easy.  I mean, he does this every single day; we’ve only been doing it for a fortnight.  It’s exhausting, but it’s so much fun, and no one is taking it too seriously.  I mean, we’re not making a Spike Lee film; we’re making Doctor Who.  Yesterday was my favorite day, I think, cos Finn and I were throwing ourselves around on the TARDIS, which is what it’s all about. You get the gig and you’re like, ‘Wow, I get to go in the TARDIS!’ In everyday life, to throw yourself onto the floor is so against your instinct, but here you just do it, without even questioning.  I’ve got bruises all over me today.”

[…]  Finlay Roberson:  “What’s weird is that we’ve only had like half a day with David Tennant.  But you could see from that short time that his personality, his charisma, his smile, and his sense of humour, is just perfectly suited to the show.  He’s fantastic.

[…]  Phil [Collinson] is more worried about the Doctor’s straight-to-camera scenes.  “It’s a lot for David [Tennant] to learn in the middle of a very grueling block,” he says.  This episode will be filmed in tandem with Human Nature and Family of Blood.  “When will he fit it in?”

“In the script, he is actually reading it from an autocue,” Steven points out. “He’s reading a transcript, isn’t he?  Aren’t I nice?”

“He won’t do that, though,” predicts Russell [T. Davies].  “He’ll want to learn it.”

Steven shrugs.  “Tell him it’s method!”
