I think it’s time we just start pretending we believe all the no homo crap coming from the writers and actors, and just get mad at them for poor writing and using queer people as a punchline.

See how long it takes them to feel the ground shift beneath their feet like Sherlock in a gay bar.

I don’t understand why books have shifted from having summaries on the back of the covers to having one-line reviews.

Seriously though. I want to know what the book is about. Not that someone from the Evening Standard thinks it’s a masterpiece. 

I have been waiting for this post my whole life.

THANK YOU

Is it ESC time, yet?!?!?!

Getting in the mood for the ESC, rewatching the ESC 2011. I don’t like to brag but boy, that was a show…the opener was brilliant and lots of great songs ..and though I would have wished for a different winner, I can live with the song that won.

Holy shit, I was so crazy about the band from DENMARK (anyone?), the Finnish boy with the big Earth in the background had me with his chorus, Bosnia was great..and holy fuck, it even was the first (brilliant) year of JEDWARD!!! and the gorgeous Katy-Perry-lookalike from Estonia..Switzerland…Iceland…party with Moldova..and then there was Italy ♥. (god, I had so many favs in that year)

(and the UK sent BLUE and still didn’t get in the Top 10 xD)

Clearly, one of my favourite ESC shows ever…

Looking forward to this year’s show!

A few of Benedict Cumberbatch’s favourite places

COUNTRIES
UK There’s great city life all over the UK. I love Belfast, Edinburgh’s culture is brilliant especially in summer for the festival and the countryside is wonderful. Plus it’s where my family and most of my friends live.
USA I love so many of its cities: New York, San Francisco, New Orleans. And northern California is a favourite, especially south of San Francisco. Big Sur must be one of the most beautiful spots.
New Zealand I went there for The Hobbit and loved it. The South Island is like Wales on steroids, it’s the most extraordinary landscape. Skydiving and seeing Mount Cook and the curve of the Earth around was an amazing experience.
Morocco It’s the gateway to North Africa and so easy to get to from Europe. Marrakech is magnificent. If that all gets too much, go to the Atlas Mountains for the most amazing views. Essaouira is calmer and more contemplative, like Marrakech on valium.
Greece I spent a lot of my childhood in Greece in a place I won’t talk about because it’s a bit of a sanctuary for me. I’m mad about the food, the culture and that life revolves around the family. It’s so child-friendly and very relaxing.
CITIES
London Absolutely top of my list. I adore London. It’s one of the most exciting cities in the world. I couldn’t be more proud of our city.
New York I love New York. I don’t know many people who don’t. It’s such an inspiring, vibrant city. You feel like there’s a new world around every corner.
New Orleans I went there when we were filming 12 Years a Slave. It was so utterly intoxicating — the drinks, food, music, the soul of the place…
Berlin It’s vibrant, it’s young and it’s innovative. It’s got a treasure trove of interesting architecture and with such a potent history.
Paris I’m an art historian and the centre of Paris is like a museum in itself. I love Montmartre and the whole of the Left Bank is stunning.

My absolute favourite cat ever. This is a manul, or pallas cat. Found in the Afghan mountains, they’re one of the oldest pure-blood cousins of our own goggies.
