I’ve decided to express my judgment of celebrities’ apparent technical skills by guessing what their wireless networks are called.

Steven Moffat: ┓┏ 凵 =╱⊿┌┬┐
Mark Gatiss: MI5 Surveillance Van #4458
Benedict Cumberbatch: linksys
Martin Freeman: CLICK HERE FOR INTERNET MARTIN

The main reason I am resisting Ello is because I don’t know if I should get on it under my real name and add everyone from facebook, or get on it under my fandom name and add fandom people.

On the one hand, people seem to be connecting on it in a fb way, but on the other hand it seems like a medium that I’d be more interested in using for fandom stuff.

Not that it matters, since it’s really just the next G+ and nobody will still be using it six months from now…

  • Fanon!John: I'm working at a clinic to have my own space so I'm not with Sherlock all the time.
  • Canon!John: Fuck this, I want to be with Sherlock all the time, I don't like being a doctor at a clinic, it's too boring, I want to be with Sherlock and working with Sherlock 24/7.
  • Fanon!John: Sherlock is dead but I've finally moved on. I'm staying at Baker Street but I have now a girlfriend and a job. I'm okay. I'm okay now.
  • Canon!John: I haven't spoken to Mrs Hudson in two years. I moved out because just the sight of the stairs at Baker Street made me want to cry. I can't even talk out loud about Sherlock's death because it fucked me up so much. I have a girlfriend now because I have to have a new romantic partner. I have to work but my life is so dull. I miss Sherlock. I'm heartbroken.

YOU REALLY ACTUALLY MEAN I GET TO SEE THE LOST 1916 SHERLOCK HOLMES FILM??????
"The film will be restored for viewing by European and American audiences, under the supervision of film restorer and SFSFF Board President Robert Byrne, who said, “‘It’s an amazing privilege to work with these reels that have been lost for generations. William Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes has ranked among the holy grails of lost film and my first glimpse of the footage confirms Gillette’s magnetism. Audiences are going to be blown away when they see the real Sherlock Holmes on screen for the first time.’"
According to the Cinematheque, “[This] is a complete nitrate duplicate that, to date, appears to be unique. Originally intended for the French operations, it contains duplicate French intertitles, and annotations of hues. The latter feature is still surprising because Essanay films have rarely been exploited in color in the United States. It seems therefore plausible that color version was created specifically for France. [The duplicate]  is currently being restored by the French Cinematheque digital and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, an organization with which we have restored American films of our collections for 2 years now. This restoration is made ​​possible through the generous support of individuals who are passionate about Sherlock Holmes.”

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing


I dislike selfies (for other reasons) but this is a wonderful argument on the male gaze
