Wilmer's RETI and LADY

These are the last two episodes in the series starring Douglas Wilmer as Holmes, which makes for 11 episodes in total. It should be noted that neither this series, nor the following year starring Peter Cushing, felt any need to adapt SCAN. See, TV shows based on the Holmes canon are in no way obligated to feature Irene Adler, no matter how much her character has been inflated out of proportion to her story.

Mark Gatiss loves PLoSH

Well I knew that Gatiss & Moffat based their version of Mycroft on Christopher Lee in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, but to hear Gatiss say that the film changed his life, is heartwarming. He too thinks Holmes was in love with Watson, with all that latent slashiness. Obviously I do too. Will have to find time to continue their honeymoon in my PLoSH fic.

Not Blue Yet

Well, so the elections are over once again. I'm very disappointed in the Texas results. I guess we have to try again to turn this state blue. There are significant parts that are plenty blue already; they just get swamped by the rest of the red counties. If that weren't upsetting, enough, I saw Kinky Friedman on one news station giving commentary about how Democrats should have embraced the Tea Party as defenders of the Constitution. Good lord!

And to think, I once voted for Kinky for Governor. How naive and stupid I was. If only that year's election wasn't so crowded with candidates. Maybe we could have defeated Rick Perry years ago. Instead we're stuck with him again, as he goes on his book tour and his likely bid for a Presidential campaign. So sickening.
