I’d rely on Martha if the world was ending. In fact, I did.
oh, take me back to the start…
Some Baby King for your Easter.
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
That game with the goat is real!
goats are literally Masters of Physics
Images from the Almost There sequence in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. The Almost There animated sequence was inspired by and styled after the artwork of Aaron Douglas (the last three images are works of his). Douglas was one of the major figures of the Harlem Renaissance.
This is pretty much my stance on (the majority of) the human race.
I think I had this on cassette too. Wait think I just made up that memory
Aw yeah, it’s on! I’ve actually watched #grease2 before #grease as a kid. In a weird way sort of prefer it more. #cassette #cassettetape
I love Hank’s Music!
I Fucking Love Science is now over 11,000 notes…so I owe you a song! I /think/ this is the shortest song on the album, so hopefully you won’t feel cheated. I’m REALLY looking forward to playing this song live.
I love Hank’s Music!
First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.
Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!
God I’m excited about this.
remember when connecting to the internet sounded like it was performing an exorcism
The memories this brings back. Those text files. That archive. The particular tenor of my mother’s voice when she picked up the phone to make a call and couldn’t.
…..people who say that Spock was cool as a cucumber about the idea of Uhura putting herself in danger….
that he doesn’t even notice her when she saves him in the end…
…he’s totes cool and he doesn’t start to break things and bones when he realizes that the villain could harm his…
