branewurms: (My Little Pony - IT'S. BEAUTIFUL.)
- So like, Sherlock. I don't even know you guys. I enjoyed the first season a lot, although I remembered very little of it. I snapped up the first ep of the 2nd season anyway, watched it... and then watched it again an hour after I'd finished. Then, a day later! I watched it AGAIN with Dave. XD;

Idk, I had a lot of problems with the episode, which I won't get into because I JUST WANT TO SMOOSH THEIR ADORABLE FACES uh, well, BORING b/c everyone else has already enumerated every problem I had with it, so I'm just wasting my breath, butttt... Watching a show 3 times in 2 days is not normal behavior for me, is all I'm sayin'! WTF, did they lace this new season with pure crack?


(Yes. Yes they did.)

(Actually, I feel compelled to note that something approximating romantic interest between Sherlock and Irene is not actually one of my problems with it. I get why so many of you hate this! I really do! But... Look, okay, that type of thing is one of my most hardcore fictional kinks, ngl. XD;)

eta: Oh! I nearly forgot. A conversation:

Me: Benedict Cumberbatch. Why is his face?

Dave: Benedict Cumberbash?

Me: Cumberbatch.

Dave: Benedict Cumberbatch. I bet his real name's George.

Me: No, that's his name. The best name for that face, really...

Dave: Wait, who is Benedict Cumberbatch?

Me: Sherlock! He plays Sherlock!

Dave: ...Oh. I thought he must be some improbably-named character in the show...

Me: ...No, that's his... actual name...

- In unrelated non-news, I have had this laptop for nearly a month now and I still can't figure out a name for it. D: All I know is it's metallic, purple-tinted, and female. (My old laptop is male. Look, don't ask me, they just are, okay.)

- Speaking of completely irrational animistic thinking, the other day I was taking a walk through my neighborhood, looked at a building I was walking by and thought to myself, "I wonder if all the residents in that building are friends, their cars look so friendly with each other!" It took a good 20 or 30 seconds for me to even note it as a strange thought.

I haven't watched it yet - but if they've continued to use that sproingy "the chase is on!" music from last season, then yes, crack. Or subliminal messaging. When I finally pulled it up on Netflix a few months ago (to see what the brouhaha was) I found myself watching eps 1 and 3 about 8 times each within a few weeks.

(OMG the blogs! the blooooogs!)

(BC's face has been entirely useful as a parenting tool. I have an 18 year old who, like many teens, believes that mirrors cringe when ze looks into them. ~ BC's face, analyzed feature by feature, isn't all that, but together it's a tasty treat.)

I don't find BC's face attractive in the usual sense, but I really like looking at him, if that makes sense. He's weird-looking, but very... uh, intriguing and good to look at, for lack of a better way to put it. Of course, an attractive face (or body) is only a small part of what makes a person attractive - which is also a pretty important thing a lot of us miss when we're young. I may not find BC's face exactly attractive, but I do find the character Sherlock attractive. (Well, probably I wouldn't in real life, considering he's a giant asshole, but you... get my point, I hope. XD;)

Oh, absolute agreement, and you put it very well.

(Like, Cillian Murphy is more classically handsome (oh who am I kidding, gorgeous) but he's also got a presence that BC does as well. Looks without intelligence and personality are just ... vapid and boring and do not want.

- although ... I know it makes me shallow, but I am just a pushover for curvy lips (on either gender).

1) Do you have a download or watch link? I haven't yet seen it and it's driving me nuts.

2) My previous computer was genderless. This one is male. There is nothing strange about this. They just are.

I just grabbed it from the pirate bay - don't remember which one I got, but there are a ton of them with a ton of seeds/peers, so. :D

IKR? The desktop I was using before the old laptop was genderless. I didn't even realize I was thinking of computers as gendered until at some point I caught myself thinking of the previous laptop as male w/o even questioning it...
