Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

While on holiday last week on the slightly-rainy Gold Coast, we finally dug out the DVD of BBC’s 2010 production of Sherlock.
OMFG - it’s absolutely brilliant!
Sadly the first season is only three 90 minute episodes, but with Season 2 this year there’ll be three more episodes to keep my new addiction going (including a version of The Hound of the Baskervilles if rumours are true).
If you enjoy detective stories / the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories / Doctor Who (Steven Moffat produces both) / or just brilliant storytelling combined with fantastic characterisation that have been superbly sculpted by outstanding directing, scripts and cinematography, then do yourself a favour and WATCH SHERLOCK NOW!  Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
It’s like the recently re-imagined Battlestar Galactica (another must-see piece of art disguised as television entertainment). Both series took the essence of genius from the original, and brought them screaming into the 21st Century.
While this new, sociopathic Holmes continues to use deduction as his main method of investigation, he’s not averse to searching the twitterverse or using his iPhone to get the latest police updates. And the battle-scarred Watson (who has seen his share of grisly deaths thanks to his tour of Afghanistan) continues his love / disgust affair with the great man.
And unlike Robert Downey Jr.’s movie, you get to cower at the intense insanity of the psychopathic Moriarty - an interpretation that both Heath Ledger’s Joker & John Simm’s The Master would find impressive.
Congratulations to co-creators Steven Moffat & Mark Gatiss; actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Martin Freeman (Watson), Una Stubbs (Mrs. Hudson the landlady), Rupert Graves (Lestrade), Andrew Scott (Molly’s boyfriend Jim - the gay IT guy), and last, but definitely not least, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Enough ranting. If you have yet to succumb to this delight, just watch Sherlock and thank me later.
