So, The ‘American Sherlock Holmes’ is airing over here soon. I won’t tell you what channel it’s airing on, for fear you might watch the thing. American audiences have already seen a few episodes and judging from its Metacritic score it hasn’t been eviscerated. I find this really strange as there has been a lot of back and forth about how the makers are terrible people for turning Watson into an Asian-American woman. This is not a knock on anyone’s acting skills, but rather an attack on the perceived need to insert a ‘will they, won’t they’ sidestory into a classic that many, including myself, would say requires extremely careful stepping when adapted. The show’s very existence is also a non-acknowledgement to the fact that there is already a stellar Sherlock Holmes adaption made in the UK. This has gotten me thinking on the topic of ‘American Remakes’; why aren’t our shows good enough without being Amercianised and tampered with? I mean, the Anglo-Irish media didn’t feel the need to set Friends in London or anything, so why are our critically acclaimed shows butchered in transit?
They missed my favourite one. “A wild BEANBAGSLEEPYSNOOZE is blocking your path.”
mrsnahasapeemapetilon asked: HA R U GAY... damn bitch I was going to be all secretive and leave this anonymously, but now you know it's me since I can't click anon. You would have known it was me anyway but I thought it was worth a shot... Isn't it the most original and offensive bullying you've seen ever?
Sorry, it took me so long to reply, I was inside a locker. But yes, it’s both original and offensive in equal measure.
The day started out innocently enough, like most days. Except those days when you wake up at like 5AM and you’re thinking ‘Oh wow, I get to go back to sleep’, but you can’t get back to sleep? Those days suck. Fuck those days. Where was I? Oh yeah, so it started out ordinarily enough…
This is one of the greatest albums ever.
