Ubu, from Houston says:
...for your next post, how about explaining those two girls arguing over Smith and Tennant? If you ever explained it, I missed the post and that question has been on my mind for years.
Here's the banner in question, shrunk to fit on the page.
Here's the explanation.
Two cute girls are arguing over which actor they preferred playing the lead in Dr. Who.
As to why this should be:
This text was intended to alert readers in one of our target demographics to the fact that geekery may occassionally be encountered here.
The reference to John Pertwee clues knowledgeable readers into the fact that your humble blogger is an old fart.
The image background appears to contain a conflagration. However, this is assumed to be for dramatic effect as an indicator of the seriousness with which these two fangirls take their Whovianism.
The fact that the two most recent "Doctors" are Tennant and Smith as well as the implication that Dr. Who is still being presented as worth discussing at all indicate that this blogs banners are in considerable need of updating.
The artist was Toshihide Sano who has not updated his Pixiv page in 3 years and whose other sites have all disappeared from the internet. He was mostly known for providing art for visual novels and I believe this particular image was from a VN's CGI set that I accessed many years ago.
That's really all I can think of to write on the subject.
Below the fold are all the other rotating banners. As noted before they are in need of updating/replacement. If anyone has been existentially bothered by pressing questions questions about any of them save the first, I'll be happy to provide answers in the comments. It was never this blogs intention to cause people stress over banners.
