It is that time again. Do you all remember that one time I made those colossal sherlockian blog lists? I will be doing yet another one!
We have grown so much as a fandom, and I wanted for all of you to see exactly how much we have grown.
A few things:
Reblog this message, if your blog consists of anything relating to the BBC Series Sherlock. (please don’t like, or reblog multiple times)
Check back on my blog’s sidebar on December 31st, 2011 at 9 pm EST to find yourself amongst the list.
Look upon the other magnificent Sherlockians that shall be displayed for you.
I don’t want to obnoxiously horde your dashes with usernames everywhere, so let me know if you’d rather I put them all under a read more, or if you’d prefer to see all the blogs for you to follow. I’d appreciate it. :)
Thank you guys! I love you all so much. <3
Seen as this tends to get VERY long, maybe a RM wouldn’t be too bad an idea.
IF you’re sitting up there, thinking “oh, that stupid add on does things we don’t want our users to do, what do we do now?” and then deciding, “well, let’s just scare the fuck out of those idiots by saying a) missing e is attacking your data, b) our servers will be lame because you’re using an add on that we didn’t approve of, and c) we won’t help you with anything if you’re using missing e” - and you actually THINK this is gonna make us panicking and uninstalling the bloody thing…
…then please bear one thing in mind:
As much as you try to cut it off by doing everything to stop us from socializing (such as making us unable to talk to each other by stupidly small ask lengths, by a ban of sharing links or even email addresses in asks; such as shortening our tags, limiting everything from asks to posts per time period; and all the other stuff you’re agonizing us with) -
WE’RE STILL A SOCIAL NETWORK.
Yes, tumblr, that’s right. I know you hate the idea, but we are. We’re not stupid consumers, but actual people who talk to each others, share opinions, discuss things.
Maybe there are people panicking. But they’ll use the tags you hate so much, they’ll talk to others about that stuff, they’ll share their thoughts and reblog and keep others informed,
and if you think you can make us obey with your stupid pop up window, let me tell you:
What is this even about? I’m a new missing e. user (and love it btw), did I miss anything? oO
EDIT: Just got the information window. Idk, I’m usually very careful with the data I provide via the internet, but I also use to trust most of my Firefox Apps… And I’m using another Add On which detects and blocks everything that tries to save and use my data (especially the google crap).
What do you think? Is this serious concern from the tumblr stuff or do they just want us to turn everything off that provides features they don’t like us to have? I have no idea… :O
How excited were you when The Only Way is Essex beat you to the Audience Award?
Ah yes. That was a moment. I loved that shot on the TV coverage of Martin [Freeman] when it was announced they had won. It was like he was just slightly frowning at the public as if to say, “Why? Why?”
[Martin Freeman] likes the ’60s look, doesn’t he? Is he turning Watson into a mod?
Ha, yes! “Dr Mod-son!” Well, he really is. Check out his clothes in this series. I think he gets away with it, though.
As I hinted earlier, I’m currently working on a small online shop where I’m gonna put some of my stuff on sale. It’s mostly very creepy, fanart-y Sherlock-related accessories and the like, but also some unrelated hand-made jewellery.
It’s called Baker Street Corner.
To be honest, aside from the info pages and a bunch of blog entries, there’s nothing to see there yet (but feel free to have a look around anyway!), because the most important thing is still missing: The products. I’m writing the product descriptions right now and as soon as I can lay my fingers on the good camera, they’ll be up.
Also, I’m planning to do a little give away in the first week of January, so if interested, stay tuned.
Now, just to make you a bit curious, here’s a first, very bad picture of one of the Mrs Hudson bags I just finished. The final product photos will all be high-res, of course.
For the $H£RLOCK fandom, featuring Ricky C and Ali G (aka Martin Freeman beatboxing chav <3).
I kind of stole this from TheRealMartinFreeman. Please don’t hurt me?

FANDOM, Y U SO TALENTED THAT YOU CAN TAKE A SHIT SONG AND MAKE IT THIS?
If you’re new to the Whoniverse, or have only come to enjoy the show since the relaunch, there’s a new ebook, compiled by the Guardian, which seeks to bring together the whole story, from the show’s earliest years to the modern day, with one eye on the reactions from critics and audience alike. Martin Belam, the book’s editor, explains more in the Guardian.
“He spent his gap year teaching English to a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, which perhaps accounts for his philosophical bent. “They taught me about the duplicity of human nature but also the humanity of it and the ridiculous sense of humour you need to live a full spiritual life. There was a time when these two rabid dogs were all over each other, screwing in the back yard, and there was all of this laughter — ‘Sir, sir, quick, come sir, sir, quick’ — and these two dogs were just stuck together, having sex, like a pushmi-pullyu [the two-headed creature in Doctor Dolittle], and the monks were on the floor laughing at these sentient beings’ pain and ridiculousness. ‘Kodak moment sir, Kodak moment!’ Brilliant!””—
Benedict Cumberbatch on his gap yah. (via ipraytocas)
This makes me love him even more, if that’s possible.
Benedict Cumberbatch says he is often type-cast because of his privileged upbringing.
“Being a posh actor in England, you can’t escape class-typing, from whatever side you look at it,” he explains in an interview in the new issue of Radio Times magazine.
“I realised quite early on that, although I wasn’t trying to make a career speciality of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals.”
You can be such an asshole at times.
I’m not even sorry for saying this. Maybe a little bit.
I don’t think he sounded like a asshole at all. Considering the Radio Times got the interview from the Daily Mail ( which scrounged it from a 2004 interview). Mr. Cumberbatch just wants to do different things. I don’t blame him at all, I would love for him to play different types of characters. Also take into account that interviewers often don’t put the entire context of their conversations in the writing. They want to make the news and since Sherlock is starting next week, why not add some unneeded controversy to it. And since the media is always right (NOT!) all the sheep now think that Mr. Cumberbatch is this horrible person. But I bet a million if Martin Freeman said the same thing it would not even be a blip on the radar. Besides from the interviews I have seen of Mr. Cumberbatch he never once has he called himself “A posh actor” he calls himself an actor. So until I hear it from his lips, it’s all just heresy and unwarranted gossip. I am not sorry for saying this!!!!
Re-reblogging for that comment! They did? Gosh, thanks then for telling me, I almost expected as much. I didn’t know, though, and I couldn’t find further sources - but, yeah, sounds legit to me. In this case, please consider my earlier statement invalid.
