Musical Monday - Dr. Who Theme by The Doubleclicks

Anyone who reads this blog is probably well-aware of how much I love the Doubleclicks. And it should come as no surprise that I am a fan of Dr. Who - and by Dr. Who, I mean all of Dr. Who, extending back to the days of Troughton, Pertwee, and Baker, up to Eccleston and Tennant, making me one of those odd people who is a fan of both "Classic Who" and "New Who". I will; however, admit to a slight partiality for Classic Who. Anyway, when the Doubleclicks released their version of the Dr. Who Theme, it was like the marriage between two of the things I love that merged together and resulted in one minute and forty-nine seconds of perfection. I should point out that, in this case, then I say "The Doubleclicks", I really mean Aubrey, since the performance is entirely her and her cello.

The online concert that Angela talks about in the portion of the video after Aubrey is done covering the Dr. Who theme song has already happened, but Aubrey and Angela were nice enough to keep all of it available on YouTube. You can see it in its entirety at this link if you want, but you obviously won't be able to send them live comments or otherwise contribute.

One thing that is still ongoing is Catherine Asaro's Kickstarter campaign to raise money for an audio book version of her anthology Aurora in Four Voices, which contains several stories set in the aforementioned Saga of the Skolian Empire. The anthology collects several of Asaro's novellas and short stories into one volume, including the Hugo- and Nebula-nominated story Aurora in Four Voices and the Nebula-winning story The Spacetime Pool. If you are interested in contributing, you can find the Kickstarter at this link.
