Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)
"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.
The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.
Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.
The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.
Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.
The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”

"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels. The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were. If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead. But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way. Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.”Am I gonna get called a racist? Probably. Am I a racist? No. Fuck you. The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who. It was THEIR PROJECT. IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE. The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem. People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media. It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that. Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW. Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own.

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

EVERYONE POINT AT ayn-randroid AND LAUGH. HAHAHAHA WHAT A DUMBASS HAHAHA 

And you do realize that the creator of Doctor Who wanted a female Doctor?

When the original series was struggling with ratings in the 1980s, the show’s creator, Sydney Newman, wrote a letter to BBC One Controller Michael Grade, admonishing the state of the show. He called for a temporary return of Patrick Troughton, who played the Second Doctor, before metamorphosing The Doctor into a female incarnation – a Time Lady.
So if The Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a woman, The Doctor could also regenerate into a person of colour as well. It would have been much more imaginative to have this iconic character transcend race and gender, especially since The Doctor is meant to transcend time itself. 

There’s no reason Doctor Who can’t be diverse yet still authentically English, especially if it wants to last another fifty years.

Can we talk about how ANGRY a FANCAST that someone only made for fun this jackass got? 
Yes, you are being racist. Reexamine yourself.

Beautiful fancast. Ignore the racist.

I would watch all of these Doctors. I would watch fandom open its arms wide and embrace multitudes.
Alas.

When the original series was struggling with ratings in the 1980s, the show’s creator, Sydney Newman, wrote a letter to BBC One Controller Michael Grade, admonishing the state of the show. He called for a temporary return of Patrick Troughton, who played the Second Doctor, before metamorphosing The Doctor into a female incarnation – a Time Lady.
So if The Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a woman, The Doctor could also regenerate into a person of colour as well. It would have been much more imaginative to have this iconic character transcend race and gender, especially since The Doctor is meant to transcend time itself. 

There’s no reason Doctor Who can’t be diverse yet still authentically English, especially if it wants to last another fifty years.

Can we talk about how ANGRY a FANCAST that someone only made for fun this jackass got? 
Yes, you are being racist. Reexamine yourself.

Beautiful fancast. Ignore the racist.

I would watch all of these Doctors. I would watch fandom open its arms wide and embrace multitudes.
Alas.

"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels. The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were. If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead.
But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way. Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.”

Am I gonna get called a racist? Probably.
Am I a racist? No. Fuck you.
The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who. It was THEIR PROJECT. IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE. The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem. People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media. It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that. Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW.

Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own.

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

EVERYONE POINT AT ayn-randroid AND LAUGH. HAHAHAHA WHAT A DUMBASS HAHAHA 

And you do realize that the creator of Doctor Who wanted a female Doctor?

There is some of my original art up for sale here, with pages from Genesis and Shadows and of course, lots of horses. Well, some horses.
Enjoy, and maybe consider buying some art. There is a ‘buy my art’ button on my site for finding the page again, too.
