Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.
Just when you thought he couldn’t sink any lower, he kept sinking lower and lower.
What I loved about this scene was that they totally played it like Lester was seeing the family photo and having second thoughts.
When actually, he was seeing it and getting IDEAS for how to be MORE EVIL.
I love it.
i hope one day there is a halloween party where daniel radcliffe goes as frodo baggins and elijah wood goes as harry potter
imagine the havoc
imagine the photos
Only if Ian Mckellen goes as Dumbledore and Michael Gambon goes as Gandalf.
Sue Vertue on filming Series 3 of Sherlock
BBC Special, January 2014 [x]
“Sherlock's a mammoth thing to make; I’m probably pleased that we don’t make it any more than every 18 months. It’s exhausting.
It’s a difficult show because it is just so big now. They’re 90 minutes, so they are films and I think that we’re trying to do everything that you would do in a film, but on a TV budget—albeit a big TV budget. So you’re just cramming everything in…
Benedict and Martin have hardly any days off at all. Because they’re in almost every scene; it’s very rare you have a whole lot of stuff they’re not in. So, I think—a lot of shows [the main actors] get a few days off, and here, you just don’t. So people do get tired. I mean today, we’re running around—there’s about four different [filming] units here.
It’s hugely exciting to work on. The actors are lovely, and it seems to be getting easier and easier to work with them.
I was watching something yesterday, and I was just welling up. And I think, quite a lot, in this series, I’ve just been watching them do something and I just… well up. And I don’t know if it’s pride, or… but they’re so good, that I just get very emotional about it. And so when I do it, I think, 'No, that works!' Because it made me cry. Or made me laugh.
It’s the joy I have of watching them. They’re so good, I think, at doing their craft.
And they all love each other. Interestingly, when we were doing the wedding [episode]—because they were together for so long—you know, the wedding [filming] went on for like a week. But they’re all dressed up in their finery and sitting in marquees waiting… they’re just having a fantastic time! It was just like a week-long wedding.”
Frankly put. I am a FAKE GEEK GUY. I admit it. I like geek stuff, but I don’t love geek stuff. Not the way most geeks do. I’m an interloper on the geek scene. I’ve seen the movies, but I don’t know the canon. I am not a true fan.
All those things about not really loving the source material and “just watching the movies” or only reading the one book that everyone has read. That—all of that—applies to me.
But here are some things that have never happened to me. I have never been quizzed about who Data’s evil brother is to prove I like Star Trek. I have never had to justify my place in a midnight line to see Spider-man II by knowing who took up the mantle of Spider-man after Peter Parker’s death. (Peter Parker dies? Really? That’s so sad!) I have never had to explain who Nightwing is in order to participate in a conversation about Batman. (Nightwing is like….Robin on steroids, right?) I have never been asked how battle meditation works in order to voice my opinion that Enterprise shields would probably make a fight with Star Wars technology one sided. (Battle meditation is something that was in that Jedi role playing game, wasn’t it?) I have never had to beat everybody in the room (twice) at Mario Kart to prove I liked video games. I have never had my gender “honorarily” changed by having enough geek interests to be accepted (“you’re one of the guys now”). No one has ever insisted I tell them the difference between a tank and DPS in an MMORPG before allowing me to discuss raiding Molten Core. I have never been dismissed as a faker at a prequel screening because I didn’t know which admiral came out of light speed too close to the planet’s surface in The Empire Strikes Back. I have never been quizzed about Armor Class in order to get past someone who was blocking my path to the back of a game store where my friends were waiting at the tables. I have never been told I’m not a real fan. I have never been shamed for coming to a convention despite my lack of esoteric knowledge. And I have never, ever, EVER been invited to leave a fandom because I didn’t like [whatever it was] enough.
Every one of the things I have listed, I have personally witnessed happen. To women.
That’s not elitism. That’s sexism.
I think I’ve reblogged this before but it’s worth another go

No human! NO! UNHAND ME! I SAID UNHA—ugghhhh, fine. Thanks, btw.
Oh, look, Arleen.
I HAVE BEEN LAUGHING FOR YEARS
Oh, oh my god. Its little face. Its little face when she’s lifting him up.
hupskeikkaa said: In my family the word "örnöttää" is used when you're doing nothing and just staring into emptiness thinking about what ever comes to your mind. It's not so intentional to örnöttää but it's an enjoyable state of being.
It kinda have the same base tone in it, doesn’t it? Doing nothing and minding your own business.
I also remembered another word: Möhmöttää (or möhnöttää), it’s almost the same as “röhnöttää”, but instead of doing it because you’re lazy you do it for the sake of being comfortable and warm and cozy.
Möhmöttää is the best word ever! I think this might the word my Swedish teacher was looking for, she tried to translate “att mysa” but came up short - möhmöttää is a pretty good translation.
