George R. R. Martin is a terrible wedding planner.
Michael Price about the Sherlock fandom and how it informed his view of audiences.
Because we all need to hear something positive about fandom today.
We can be a positive influence and simply by loving what we love we can cause views to change. I hope we can stop beating each other up and continue to create positive things.
He has so much respect for the fans. He’s literally hiding away recording his first solo album in Berlin and he liked my other interview so he gave me a break and a couple of hours of his time and WOW. What a conversation, and what a guy!
Forget the wank. It’s inconsequential. Read my interview ;-)
Sherlock’s Military Kink is Canon!
In A Study in Pink when Sherlock introduces John to 221B he has a copy of Eagle: Adventure Survival Truth Magazine in the boxes with his trunk.
EDIT -> Professorfonz figured out the magazine was Eagle and found an earlier issue of it. (I tracked down Sherlock’s issue.) On behalf of her amazingness, you’re welcome!
EDIT -> Tween!Sherlock. This magazine appears to have run in the 1980’s only so they’re probably from Sherlock’s youth which makes sense given that they’re with what I’m claiming is the boarding school trunk.
Trunk Photo from Arwel Wyn Jones’s 221b set panorama.
EDIT -> Sherlock’s is the June, 1983 issue of Eagle Adventure Survival Truth Magazine. Headlines include: “Street Fighting Techniques,” “L.A.W. Update,” “82nd Airborn,” etc. I’m looking for a better photo of the issue.
Just imagining Sherlock pulling these out, year after year since he was a teenager, and reading them before he goes to sleep. And making sure to take them along everywhere he moves.
This is the BEST.
>too many women
I’m sorry, I don’t know what those words mean in that order.
>do you ever think, “there should be a guy in here somewhere?”
>I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I’m afraid it won’t appeal to a large enough audience.
You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet. Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.
Write the story you want to read.
"You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet. Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.
"Write the story you want to read. "
I think that, at some point, all of us who write forget this, and I’m so grateful to Kelly Sue for reminding us.
Pie is the answer to everything.
Ahem, Supernatural fandom?
socks in the dryer sacrifice them selves to their dryer god and thats why all your socks are missing
Ohey, a Mary photo I never put up. I like this one. ^^
You are perfect.
how many hospital visits do you think st. mungo’s gets from people using engorgio spells on their dick
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like. He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it: Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
EDIT: ONE MORE THING!! A critic asked who his current favorite actor is and his answer was Viola Davis…
This was YEARS before The Help.
Release in the US is limited and starts in theaters June 27, 2014. Radius-TWC is the company distributing the film.
This movie was fucking gnarly. When i saw the cast list, i was like.. what the fuck? I couldn’t believe how unknown and off the radar this film was when it had such an outstanding roster of actors. I’ve been recommending it left and right to people. It’s one of my favorites.
if you don’t think there needs to be better sex ed in school let me tell you that i almost slept with a guy from my health class until he took one look at my clit and said “ew why is your pee hole swollen like that? is that herpes?”
Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
