I want a movie about a guy who runs for president and wins but then suddenly realizes that he doesn’t want to be president, so he just starts doing ridiculous things all the time trying to get impeached, but it NEVER WORKS because they always miraculously end up being the right thing to do. Like, he declares war on Canada? Next day it turns out that Canada had secret plans to nuke Washington. he bans Doritos? Turns out theyr’e the number one cause of cancer and natural disasters. He sends his vice president to jail? Turns out the VP was a terrorist in disguise. He has 100% approval rating, most popular president ever.
I’ve decided that I want him to be played by Jeff Goldblum.

*someone who ive never met befores follow forever shows up on my dash* *im not on it* what the fuck
(2/2) that he regretted not to have included a scene in which he made clear that his Holmes was indeed gay, therefore that Sherlock was canonically gay according to the film’s creator and I bet Moffat knows this; therefore he must have lied, right?
If Moffat read TPLoSH that way, he wouldn’t be the first to do so; lots of people do. Even the synopsis for it on Amazon instant video describes it in this way. Still, though, Moffat and Gatiss aren’t just casual viewers who would be unaware of the fact that Wilder himself meant for his Sherlock Holmes to be gay. They are two men who love Sherlock Holmes stories in all of their various forms and who have been in the industry for a long time and would definitely both know the background on a film they both agree to have been very inspired by.
Whatever their individual thoughts on TPLoSH may be, though, there is not a doubt in my mind that they went into Sherlock having reached an agreement on exactly what the goal for their show was going to be. So even if they disagreed on some or all points of their reading of TPLoSH, that would not lead me to believe that they are in disagreement over what they are doing now in their Sherlock Holmes adaptation.
And Moffat played very heavily on the second part of TPLoSH when he wrote ASiB (seriously, this episode is like A Scandal and Bohemia and the second half of TPLoSH had a love child)… in which he wrote John being intensely jealous of Sherlock’s interactions with Irene, Sherlock repeatedly rejecting or being indifferent to Irene’s advances, Irene informing John that John and Sherlock are in fact a couple, and John not denying that he has feelings for Sherlock in spite of his declaration that he’s “not actually gay.” Whatever Moffat thinks of TPLoSH, he apparently wasn’t set on writing a compelling love story between Sherlock and Irene in ASiB.

im so pro-selfie like there are so many bigger problems in the world than girls who think theyre pretty
one of those problems is girls who dont think theyre pretty
A new survey conducted exclusively for BuzzFeed found that as more advertisers are featuring depictions of LGBT people in their ads, more Americans are getting on board.
Here are a couple of key points taken from the survey of 500 people:
- 80% agreed that “showing gay or lesbian people in ads simply reflects the reality of our society today”
- 60% agreed that “brands that show same-sex couples are being appropriately inclusive”
- 57% said “it’s cool when I see same-sex couples in ads”
- 40% said “TV ads are no place for same-sex couples”
- 72% said they consider brands with LGBT-inclusive ads “brave”
The article linked above explains more about the survey data, while this longer BuzzFeed article dives deeper into how brands are using inclusive advertising to reach out to more audiences. As GLAAD’s Sarah Kate Ellis said, “It’s about time my children were able to turn on the television and see families like their own represented in mainstream advertising.”
What do you think?
Think about it this way: Eventually, it’ll be a lot less than 40 percent.
Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have a “fantastic, really mouth-watering idea” says the star - could it be a Christmas special?
"Mark Gatiss may beat me up," Freeman told Alan Carr at the recording of this Friday’s Chatty Man for Channel 4, "but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it I thought ‘we’ve just got to do this’. And I don’t know when we are going to be able to do it, unfortunately.
"It’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it."
I should be excited, right? *tries on some excitement* Oh well, doesn’t fit me.
I am just imagining that Christmas special likely means warm, fuzzy things. If it’s a flashback, that’s fine. If it’s continuation, I’d rather wait for actual S4.
HLV left such a bad taste in my mouth I’d welcome a warm(er) fuzzy(er) one-off, flashback or whatnot. Also I’m a really impatient, instant gratification person in general, so I throw my vote (as if I got one) into the Xmas one-off jar.
I’d also like the baby question just to be settled ASAP so…that’d be good.
If Martin Freeman says it’s a really good idea, it must be a really, really good idea.
