Ahhh, much better!

Well, hi ho!😄 Today I’m sending virtual shock blankets to anyone who’s in need of one. Why should I need one you may ask? Oh, c’mon! You know why. It’s OVER. Sherlock’s season 4 is o-v-e-r. *😭* I’m not going to review any of it because it’s not really my thing. I’m just going to say that I LOVED ALL OF IT. I know there are a lot of mixed emotions (most of them negative *unfortunately*) concerning this *possibly* final season of the show but to me it all made perfect sense, the cinematography and the acting were exceptional as always and I cannot say a single bad word about it. As Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had once said:

“I pay no attention whatever to anybody’s praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings.”

Simple as that. And since I really don’t know what else to say I’m just going to express my appreciation for the last episode – The Final Problem by showing you a few picture edits I made for fun.

Shakespeare Sunday🎭

Good greetings, lovely people! How fare you?

Today, I’m doing #ShakespeareSunday. Now, if you’re not aware of the existence of the Shakespeare Sunday hashtag on Twitter here’s how it all began: it was founded in October 2012 by @hollowcrownfans and it is a weekly event they host on Twitter where Shakespeare lovers can share their favourite quotes from across Shakespeare’s work. *And here I am again – compensating my absence from social media by basically doing the exact same thing they do on there but moving it here on WordPress because it’s less mainstream you know…lol.😇* 

If you have watched The Lying Detective (episode 2 from series 4 of BBC’s Sherlock) you probably know what my #ShakespeareSunday is going to look like. Long story short: the theatre kid in me completely lost it when Sherlock frantically recited the famous “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more” speech from Henry V.

Henry V is a history play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1599. It tells the story of King Henry V of England, focusing on events immediately before and after the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years’ War. In the First Quarto text, it was entitled The Cronicle History of Henry the fift,[1]:p.6 which became The Life of Henry the Fifth in the First Folio text.
The play is the final part of a tetralogy, preceded by Richard II, Henry IV, Part 1, and Henry IV, Part 2. The original audiences would thus have already been familiar with the title character, who was depicted in the Henry IV plays as a wild, undisciplined lad known as “Prince Harry” and by Falstaff as “Hal”. In Henry V, the young prince has become a mature man and embarks on a successful conquest of France.

Lets see what I’m talking about, shall we?

Alright, so this is *hands down* THE MOST EPIC MOMENT in television history! Am I right or am I right??? *don’t answer me* Lets feast our eyes on the text:

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more”
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
(from Henry V, spoken by King Henry)

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’

What did you think about the scene? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? *I might have watched it at least a 100 times so far…😅* And have you watched The Hollow Crown?* (If you haven’t correct your mistake NOW) Also, are you a fan of #ShakespeareSunday (if you’re on Twitter)?

*The Hollow Crown is a mini-series of adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays: Richard II, Henry IV Parts One and Two, and Henry V, starring Ben Whishaw, Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston.

*The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses is series of adaptations of Shakespeare’s first tetralogy: Henry VI, Part I, Henry VI, Part II, Henry VI, Part III and Richard III, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as King Richard III.

Has’t a lovely day, mine dears! I sayeth farewell!

3 minutes and 42 seconds of pure, genious filmmaking🎬

Today, on 221B, we celebrate the work of all the incredible people standing behind what I like to call a revolutionary filmmaking. For all of you cinematography lovers!

221bfilmmaking

And here are some of my favourite quotes from filmmakers of the past and present:

There are no rules in filmmaking. Only sins. And the cardinal sin is dullness.
– Frank Capra

If I were ever stranded on a desert island there would be three things I’d need: food, shelter, and a grip.
– George C. Scott

We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.
– Walt Disney

I was always a filmmaker before I was anything else. If I was always anything, I was a storyteller, and it never really made much of a difference to me what medium I worked in.
– Nicholas Meyer

Film is incredibly democratic and accessible, it’s probably the best option if you actually want to change the world, not just re-decorate it.
– Banksy

My three Ps: passion, patience, perseverance. You have to do this if you’ve got to be a filmmaker.
– Robert Wise

There is no reason why challenging themes and engaging stories have to be mutually exclusive – in fact, each can fuel the other. As a filmmaker, I want to entertain people first and foremost. If out of that comes a greater awareness and understanding of a time or a circumstance, then the hope is that change can happen.
– Edward Zwick

Pain is temporary, film is forever!
– John Milius

I would travel down to Hell and wrestle a film away from the devil if it was necessary.
– Werner Herzog

My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.
– Robert Bresson

Editing feels almost like sculpting or a form of continuing the writing process.
– Sydney Pollack

There’s nothing quite like the idea of failing spectacularly to excite a film maker.
– Mike Figgis

Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.
– Alfred Hitchcock

The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.
– Orson Welles

A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end… but not necessarily in that order.
– Jean-Luc Godard

Nobody will ever notice that. Filmmaking is not about the tiny details. It’s about the big picture.
– Ed Wood

Movies took you right up to the edge but kept you safe.
– John Updike

Films are always pretentious. There’s nothing more pretentious than a filmmaker.
– John Milius

If filmmaking was a beautiful woman, I would have trouble wooing her because she’s a needy jerk.
– Justin Bundy

I think one of the privileges of being a filmmaker is the opportunity to remain a kind of perpetual student.
– Edward Zwick

Self-plagiarism is style.
– Alfred Hitchcock

What I always tell people is… Unless you are so passionate about filmmaking that you would rather live out of your car than not do it, find something else to do as a career and do filmmaking as a hobby. This industry is one of the hardest to break into and be successful. It takes a lot of passion and dedication for it to get anywhere…
– Ryan Connolly

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
– Stanley Kubrick

No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
– Ingmar Bergman

All I need to make a comedy is a park, a policeman and a pretty Girl.
– Charlie Chaplin

Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity.
– Chuck Jones

And later I thought, I can’t think how anyone can become a director without learning the craft of cinematography.
– Gus Van Sant

I think audiences get too comfortable and familiar in today’s movies. They believe everything they’re hearing and seeing. I like to shake that up.
– Christopher Nolan

Photography is Truth. The cinema is Truth twenty-four times per second.
– Jean-Luc Godard

A film is a petrified fountain of thought.
– Jean Cocteau

A director makes only one movie in his life. Then he breaks it into pieces and makes it again.
– Jean Renoir

Life is like a B-picture script. It is that corny. If I had my life story offered to me to film, I’d turn it down.
– Kirk Douglas

I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can’t stop eating peanuts.
– Orson Welles

If a million people see my movie, I hope they see a million different movies.
– Quentin Tarantino

The end of a picture is always an end of a life.
– Sam Peckinpah

A lot of times you get credit for stuff in your movie you didn’t intend to be there.
– Spike Lee

If my film makes one more person miserable, I’ve done my job.
– Woody Allen

It’s all just one film to me. Just different chapters.
– Robert Altman

If there’s specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies.
– Kathryn Bigelow

Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee.
– James Cameron

In the future, everybody is going to be a director. Somebody’s got to live a real life so we have something to make a movie about.

Movement should be a counter, whether in action scenes or dialogue or whatever. It counters where your eye is going. This style thing, for me it’s all fitted to the action, to the script, to the characters.
– Samuel Fuller

I’m a storyteller – that’s the chief function of a director. And they’re moving pictures, let’s make ‘em move!
– Howard Hawks

One of the great things about being a director as a life choice is that it can never be mastered. Every story is its own kind of expedition, with its own set of challenges.
– Ron Howard

The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on. And one day you die. That is all there is to it.
– John Huston

I think maybe making films is something innate you can’t really teach to begin with.
– Richard Linklater

But having a really good understanding of history, literature, psychology, sciences – is very, very important to actually being able to make movies.
– George Lucas

Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater.
– Roman Polanski

A style is not a matter of camera angles or fancy footwork, it’s an expression, an accurate expression of your particular opinion.
– Karel Reisz

Cinema is a matter of what’s in the frame and what’s out.
– Martin Scorsese

People say I pay too much attention to the look of a movie but for God’s sake, I’m not producing a Radio 4 Play for Today, I’m making a movie that people are going to look at.
– Ridley Scott

A director must be a policeman, a midwife, a psychoanalyst, a sycophant and a bastard.
– Billy Wilder

Relive the magic of #SherlockLive

Hi Ho! If you are a Sherlock *fan(atic)* you probably know about the ‘live mind game’ that BBC One hosted on their Twitter account (well, it was actually Sherlock himself who hacked their account and did it all, so…*just sayin’*).

Well, today I am the most miserable human being. You know why? I’m not on Twitter. *cough, cough* Now, when people ask me why I contemn social media so much I usually tell them that I am a sociopath (high-functioning one of course). I thought Sherlock was on my side (the side of social media sneering) so you can imagine my surprise when in the first episode of season 4 we saw Sherlock practically tweeting.

SHERLOCK HOLMES IS ON TWITTER?! WHY IS HE ON TWITTER?! WHY AM I NOT ON TWITTER?! HE IS ACTUALLY TWEETING?! WHO’S ON TWITTER?! Wait…WHAT?!

Anyway…It is what it is, I guess…*sob* You probably see where I’m going with this. I didn’t participate in the live case. I MISSED THE BLOODY AWESOME THING! *burst into tears* (btw, I know I can still see everything on Twitter without having an account but it’s not the same. IT. IS. NOT. THE. SAME.) Of course it’s not the end of the world but given the fact that it was indeed a really cool idea *praise Motfiss* I now have all the right in the world to be miserable.

Резултат с изображение за sheldon hulk sad gif

So, I thought I’ll just relive the whole thing myself on here and highlight all the best moments of the #SherlockLive awesomeness. THE GAME IS ON! *the game is not on. it was on but you missed it.* *note to self: make a Twitter account ASAP*

It all began with Sherlock taking over the BBC Twitter account:

The tech guys are cute…

Way too cute…

I can’t even tell you how much I love that! *hiiiiii*😍

Sassy Sherlock is sassy.

And then Twitter users were challenged to solve the murder of Daniel Collard:

There were clues *obviously*

“If you’re feeling particularly stupid…”😂

LOL…😂

Who is the killer?

More sass.

Eventually the truth came out.

Even more sass.

And here’s the story behind #SherlockLive:

Jo Pearce, the Creative Digital Director at BBC Wales explained:

“It’s an idea we’ve had for some time – I’ve just been waiting for the right opportunity to try it out. What could be better than bringing together sheer genius and testing Sherlock against the rest of the world? Sherlock Holmes’ unique style of deduction offers a fascinating format to play with, and social media means anything is possible. We do know the demand for more Sherlock is sky high. We also know people want to test themselves and compete with him – but he’s the world’s most brilliant mind, so can they come anywhere near?”

*Sherlock Live case written by Joseph Lidster for BBC Wales.

*Sherlock (aka writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss) were tweeting live in role as Sherlock.

So what do you think? Did you test your powers of deduction? There were so many funny responses it’s impossible for me to display them all here. But can we talk about that:

So much awesome I can’t even!😂

And as Sherlock wrote on the BBC website at the end of the live-case-solving-twitter-thing: “I’m off.”

P.S. “Well, I was mildly entertained by that. It looks like you seemed to enjoy it, even if it was way over your head. Bye-bye.” – SH

Utterly important message❗

To anyone who still thinks Sherlock, Series 4 is not living up to the hype:

What’s your favourite thing about the apartment? Mine has to be…well…everything really…after all I named a blog after it.

Dr Watson says in a Study In Scarlet:

“We met next day as he had arranged, and inspected the rooms at No. 221B, Baker Street, of which he had spoken at our meeting. They consisted of a couple of comfortable bed-rooms and a single large airy sitting-room, cheerfully furnished, and illuminated by two broad windows.”

And here are some other details regarding the apartment, listed by Russell Stutler (the man who has drawn a very famous illustration of 221B Baker Street) who has apparently studied the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle very thoroughly:

A Study in Scarlet
a couple of bedrooms
large airy sitting room
two broad windows
sofa in sitting room
arm chair
table for dinner

Holmes’ door at top of stairs
also a passage at the top of the stairs

unframed picture of Henry Ward Beecher which stands on top of Watson’s books
Watson could see these from his chair
Holmes could see Watson’s face from his position curled upon the sofa

The Adventure of the Priory School

table was between the hearthrug and the door

The Adventure of Black Peter
a room just off the sitting room

The Adventure of the Six Napoleons
lumber room upstairs of the sitting room which was packed with daily papers

The Hound of the Baskervilles

another chair opposite it
table between door and Holmes’ chair

The Problem of Thor Bridge
back yard is visible from Watson’s room
Watson’s room is upstairs of the sitting room

The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger
pile of commonplace books in the corner

* A note regarding the location of Holmes’ own bedroom: The Adventure of the Beryl Cornet implies that Holmes’ room (called his “chamber”) is on the floor above the sitting room while The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone clearly puts Holmes’ bedroom just off the sitting room where it communicates with the alcove of the bow window. If you need to reconcile these two descriptions you can assume that at some point in time, Holmes moved his bed down to the room next to the sitting room. This could be the same room just off the sitting room which had been used as a temporary waiting room in The Adventure of Black Peter . The room upstairs could then be used as a lumber room dedicated to Holmes’ stacks of newspapers and “bundles of manuscript … which were on no account to be burned, and which could not be put away save by their owner” as mentioned in the The Musgrave Ritual . The Adventure of the Six Napoleons does mention a lumber room upstairs packed with daily papers.

Common cold? Forget your GP, Sherlock Holmes is here to the rescue!

I’ll skip the pesky prelude and I’m just going to show you something:

Yep. That’s the current weather at my whereabouts. Feels like -25°?! o.O I can’t confirm if that’s really how it feels outside because guess what? I’m sick. *surprise, surprise*

There’s actually an awful flu that’s been raging for a month now and I have basically been living on vitamin C supplies in hopes of surviving the winter without getting sick. Ha ha ha, the naivety of me… Good news though – I’m pretty sure it’s not the terrible flu I’m dealing with right now – most likely it’s my old pal Monsieur Common Cold. *breath of relief/well, hello again*

 I don’t know about you but me? I feel like my immune system is constantly giving me this look:

Not funny, immune system dear, not funny…😡 

Anyways, as I was acquiescently sipping from my cup of tea I recalled one particular scene from an episode of CBS’s Elementary in which Sherlock Holmes (played by Jonny Lee Miller) claimed to prevent common cold by bouncing on a trampoline.😆 Thankfully, YouTube didn’t disappoint me and I found what I was looking for in mere seconds. Take a look (it’s from the episode “No Appointment” of season 4):

The dialogue goes:

Watson: What’s with the trampoline?

Sherlock: It really is shocking what they don’t teach you in medical school.

Watson: Okay, forget I asked.

Sherlock: The lymphatic system, unlike the cardiovascular system, has no pumping capability; it relies on muscular contraction.

Sherlock: Bouncing up and down is effective, because it stimulates the system’s one-way valves to open and close simultaneously.

Watson: You’re increasing lymph flow to boost your immunity to keep your sinuses clear– got it.

Sherlock: Seemed like a wise choice.

Watson: Why? Are you getting a cold?

Sherlock: Not yet, but we live in close quarters and I detected a phlegmy rattle in your voice last night.

Watson: I feel fine.

Sherlock: Do you?

Since I’m sick and most importantly bored I did some digging on the matter of trampoline bouncing and its benefits for your health and here’s what I found:

“Exercise is a great stimulant to improving your immune system to ward off infections, flu, colds, viruses and cancers. Certain types of exercise can increase the number of white blood cells up to fourteen times their normal amount. For someone prone to infections and disease, this is good news indeed.

One of the most effective ways to stimulate your immune system is to bounce on a mini-trampoline or rebounder. Believe me, it’s not like you have to jump a foot in the air. The most effective way, is to keep your feet on the bed of the rebounder and gently bounce up and down for two minutes. It only takes two minutes to flush the entire lymphatic system of toxins and gunk. Then the body says it’s time to create more white blood cells to continue to fight what has infected the body or prevent further invasion. During this two minute bounce the white blood cell count is almost tripled and the immune system is refreshed.
This is good news for people with weak immune systems or those with serious diseases like cancer. If you get frequent colds and flu, you might want to start bouncing before flu season. And, if you combine bouncing with alkalizing your body, you are giving those germs and lumps a double whammy. The immune system becomes depressed because the body is dehydrated, acidic and sluggish. By drinking alkaline, ionized water you start to move the toxins that have solidified in the body. The lymph system is so important at this point that you start to alkalize the body. It too has become stagnant so to help eliminate the toxins and acidity in your body, it needs to be stimulated. Gentle bouncing does this when you cannot have lymphatic drainage done by a therapist. In about an hour after rebounding, the white blood count returns to normal, so if you are sick, you should rebound again for two minutes to continue to stimulate the lymphatic system to produce more white blood cells. This pattern of bouncing and resting is the most natural way to restore the body to health, then to maintain it. By drinking a glass of Cerra alkaline, ionized water after you bounce, you’re moving the process along faster. The more times you do your two minute bounce and drink your glass of Cerra water during the day, the more your body will be stimulated to heal itself.

So, how does rebounding work? When you move around doing the things you do during the day, you are defying gravity. Gravity is pulling you down but you are moving through it. You’re not stuck. When you bounce, gravity is tripled on the lowest part of the bounce so your body perceives that it weighs more. As a result, it starts to adapt by strengthening all of its parts, bones, muscles, organs, skin, brain and all your cells. If you think about it, there is an acceleration, centrifugal force, a deceleration and gravity. Your body knows how to adapt, it always has. If you look at someone who rides a bike, their leg muscles get stronger because of the repetitive action of pedaling or pushing weight. People who lift weights become stronger because to the act of lifting the weights. The four forces mimic weights so the body responds by becoming stronger.

On the acceleration phase of the bounce the body perceives it is at rest, on the deceleration phase the body perceives it must work. As the body rests and works, stress and tension melt away and the body perceives a rhythm and internally wakes up. Fluids that have been sluggish begin to move, all the organs wake up, processes like digestion begin to improve. All your pipes and plumbing begin to work better as they begin to unload the toxins and react to the alkaline, ionized water. And in the upward acceleration phase of the bounce, healing chemicals are released by the body as it relaxes.

The process of alkaline hydration combined with bouncing is one of the most powerful and fun ways to improve your health. The important thing is to start, even if you can only start slowly. If you experience pain, dizziness or other symptoms in the process of bouncing then stop and note how long you have been bouncing. If it was only ten seconds, record it. Then drink your glass of alkaline, ionized water, then in an hour or so, bounce again for another 10 seconds. Pretty soon, after a number of days you may be able to bounce for 15 or 20 seconds at a time. It is important to not give up and of course, keep drinking the Cerra alkaline, ionized water. After all, it is much more fun to bounce your way to health.”

So what can I say…? The minute I feel better I’ll probably go on a hunt for my own mini trampoline… I’m at that point of my life where if it was, say, an actual doctor who’s trying to foist me the idea of fighting a common cold via trampoline jumping I would probably be like:

But since it’s Sherlock Holmes himself suggesting it I’m like:

Reaction GIF: yes, nod, Ariel, The Little Mermaid

What do you think? Are you willing to try jumping around like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh in order to boost your immune system?

*ooopsss, sorry, my bad* #BOUNCE!

That’s it for today. Btw, isn’t it lovely how you can touch on so many subjects simply by taking a little piece of anything Holmes-related?

Let me know in the comments below what do you do to prevent colds and influenzas? Also, what is the current weather where you live? Stay warm and healthy! So long!

P.S. Brand new episode of Elementary tomorrow, January 8th!
