My latest video moves at a speed of 5.552 Val Kilmers per minute. It’s glorious. Check it out! 

Please reblog to share the Kilmer love.

Dear Sabrina, you really need to watch this movie. Like really a lot. Please & thank you.

I badly want a reaction gif of ProJared deadpanning “I don’t care” in this video (around the 8 minute mark.) This is as close as I’ve been able to get — and it’s not close enough. It just looks like he’s saying “yeah”.

I Don’t Know How To Reblog Your Reply So I’m Writing A New Post, and Skip This If You Don’t Want To Hear About Mycroft Unless You Care About Breaking Bad?

Is this Mycroft-love specific to a particular incarnation? Because, like, Mark Gatiss Mycroft is very different to Stephen Fry Mycroft (who is in turn very different to Rhys Ifans Mycroft.) And like, if what you’re a fan of is ‘[s]mart as a whip and lazy as the opposite of a whip’ then I put to you that you should actually just be a Stephen Fry girl, full stop. Because bleh, Guy Ritchie Sherlock movies, but hooray QI.

So far it’s original book Mycroft (I know, i know, nonsense) + Gatiss. Because I haven’t watched the second RDJr movie yet and maaaaay peter out before I get to Elementary (because I also uh started Breaking Bad today).

Totally fair. I just personally find Mark Gatiss sort of insufferable (and, yes, worship Stephen Fry like a ninny.) The fact that he (Gatiss) has penned some really terrible episodes of Doctor Who may factor into that.

Also, for future use:

Use this dropdown at the top right of your re-blog; change it from “Link” (the default) to “Text” and you’ll get the full post to respond to as you please.

  • Somewhere in my lizard brain, I realized today that I’m a Mycroft gal. I was standing outside the Ben’s Cookies at High Street Kensington eating a Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate cookie (reminder: I am very good at unemployment) thinking about how it was probably going to rain at any moment (it did not), and then I just thought, there should be more Mycroft in the world. Smart as a whip and lazy as the opposite of a whip. A++, would read/see more of that.

OK, so:

  1. You are absolutely very good at funemployment, but more importantly
  2. Is this Mycroft-love specific to a particular incarnation? Because, like, Mark Gatiss Mycroft is very different to Stephen Fry Mycroft (who is in turn very different to Rhys Ifans Mycroft.)

A Problem With Classical Education

"In order to learn to play the piano, you must first learn to take a bow."

A statement about the top-down obstacles inherent in many outmoded educational systems, which came to me fully-formed in a dream. I assume that particular gobbet came from ruminating on Seymour Papert’s famous quote, as referenced in this OLPC memo, “You can’t think about thinking without thinking about thinking about something.”

Re: I was at Dashcon: An Unnecessary Q&A with myself

markdoesstuff:

i want so badly to ignore this and just get on with my life, considering that i’m in the midst of tour and traveling the US right now, but it’s clear that I can’t escape this. this is a very long post, i am keeping it under a cut…

Whether you’ve been following the DashCon controversy or not (and, for the most part, I haven’t) this is an interesting post and I want to thank Mark for writing it.
