INTERVIEWER: The way [Sherlock] is edited is that there’s not a beat between scenes, at times. We’ve gone straight from the end of a conversation directly into something else.

GATISS: I think that’s very important. In [A Study In Pink], you’ve got this wonderful ‘Iceman Cometh' build-up. You don't see Sherlock, you don't see Sherlock, and then you see him upside down.

INTERVIEWER: You clearly had a lot of fun with that.

GATISS: Oh, yes, I absolutely adore it. It’s a brilliant idea of Steve [Moffat’s]. It’s a bit like introducing Bond.

But I think you just need to get people really hooked. You’ve got the murders, you’ve got John’s lonely life — and then suddenly here’s this man, and everything changes.

It doesn’t pause for breath for a long time, and that’s good, and when it does, you feel like you’ve deserved to sit down and wonder, ‘How do you do this?’

Mark Gatiss

Casting: Disney Casts Adorable Newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli in ‘Jungle Book!’ 
I’m super excited about this but, like, cautiously excited. Disney’s been on this kick of reimagining their classic animated tales for live action and I haven’t liked a single one of them. I felt 2010’s Alice in Wonderland was nonsensical and over-saturated with special effects and and the only positive thing about this year’s Maleficent was Angelina Jolie. But this movie has a lot of interesting players involved. We’ve already got Idris Elba as Shere Khan and Lupita Nyong’o as Mowgli’s wolf mother and Jon Faverau is directing, so I’m keeping my eye on it. 

are you seeing this casting 


oh my god oh my GOd

in movies when a character is looking straight into their reflection in a mirror

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

An MIT linguistics professor was lecturing his class the other day. “In English,” he said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative.

But there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can express a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”

Can we take a moment

The founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, four of the greatest wizards and witches of all time …

… and they decided to have a school song that goes like,"Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts…"

I am now picturing Helga, Rowena, Salazar, and Godric all sitting around a table going “well, fuck, what rhymes with hogwarts”
