Imagine fucking Joss Whedon. It starts out really great, but in the middle of it he cuts off your feet and runs away with them. Later he returns and whispers that you are now stronger. You feel really disappointed and angry, but six months later you fuck again. It’s exactly the same thing.
No wonder the whole cast gets along so well they all have really problematic attitudes.
Pressed Sherlock cast member Louise Brealey (who plays Molly Hooper on BBC Sherlock), who first said that having a female Watson was “nonsense,” and then said it was “gimmicky”.
See fan comment below, too: “Agreed. I’m all for women’s rights but John/Sherlock are traditionally men and having a female Watson is just wrong.”
Here’s the shot with the pressed fan’s comment:
Go see for yourself here.
“I’m all for women’s rights, but - “
Casting a WOC in a role traditionally held by white men = gimmicky
Playing up the ~bromance~ of Sherlock and John while still keeping them canonically heterosexual and asexual (except asexuality is too boring for Moffat) + making Irene Adler a self-proclaimed lesbian who falls in love with a dude = not gimmicky
O K A Y
WOW, I fell asleep at my computer with my lights on, phone unplugged, and everythiiing. Luckily, I was already in my bed in a sleeping position, but holy shit, that’s never happened before.
Bucket list #1: Eat all the different cheesecakes from the Cheesecake Factory.
(Minus the ones I find truly revolting. The coconut ones, for instance.)
Progress: 4/hundred bajillion
The cast of Snow White and the Huntsman read excerpts from 50 Shades of Gray
WHAT THE HELL. WHAT. THE. HELL. MY BRAINS.
Now they just need to get Tom Hiddleston to read this XD
(This) Chris’s personal rating of the performances:
Sam Claflin (Prince Charming): A (for being deliciously, adorably, serious, and very very intense when he wanted to be)
Charlize Theron (the Queen): A+++++++++ (… JUST WATCH IT. She gets REALLY into it, and is very, very game. And I love that there are a little trail of happy little bunnies hopping behind her when she talks about… the other trail).
Kristen Stewart (Snow White): A (for the deadpan delivery, which sadly actually made it even funnier for me, and the in-all-apparent-seriousness “I need to read this book”)
Chris Hemsworth: …… A- (for having an absolutely amazing voice which would make this book sound amazing (HURHUR), and for readingitveryveryfastandthereforecuttingmypainshort).
As MJ says - Tom Hiddleston needs to read this. He would probably scare me with his reading by taking it COMPLETELY SERIOUSLY. I imagine it would be like when he did that Tennessee Williams reading.
Hemsworth is so embarrassed /laughing like crazy
you can happily say “his massive hammer” but not read erotica
IS THIS WHAT NORMALITY FEELS LIKE??
Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007: I. Prélude - Johann Sebastian Bach
Cello: Pablo Casals
“In the very early twentieth century, no other cellist cared to perform an entire Bach Suite at a recital or concert. They were considered to be either too academic and dry, or too uninteresting for most audiences, without some sort of accompaniment. Indeed, it must be admitted, that any cellist who performs a Bach Suite strictly by himself (there is an edition with a piano accompaniment, not by Bach) is baring his technique and musicality to the highest degree, and that’s a risky thing to do! Casals was astonished that anyone could think the Suites dry, or like an exercise book of scales for intermediate cellists, for he looked at the Suites from his own very Romantic soul, and found them to be full of the deepest meaning and pathos.
It is interesting that while Casals invested the Suites with a hitherto unknown Romanticism as far as their emotional content was concerned, he simultaneously modernized the technique with which they were performed. Cellists prior to Casals used fingerings that incorporated quite a bit of sliding around from note to note. Casals’ fingerings demanded more stretching, and leaps of the left hand, rather than sliding, creating a much cleaner and more musical impression”
Exquisitely played - outstanding.
I was bored and made this. Its a Police Box based ring with a tension set 1CT Princess Cut center stone. The three round stones is the Police Box sign, the two sets of four baguettes symbolize the windows, and a small princess cut below that to symbolize the instructions found on the front of the Police Box.
