If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all
"We didn’t make a difference at all."
"I wouldn’t say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant."
what a day!!!!!!!! nothing happened and i was tired
My current clothing style is a combination of “shit I’m late”, “shit it’s cold”, with just a hint of “I’m too lazy to look socially acceptable for you losers”.
Pirates Unite! Fangirls = Pirates. Damn Straight.
..from Making Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind the Scenes at Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! on PBS by Rebecca Eaton
I love the first photo so much.
"We don’t seem to be suffering from the loss of viewers who’ve illegally pirated the show …."
"Not only had these young pirates previously seen this particular episode of Sherlock, they’d illegally seen the other episodes … They had only a vague awareness of Masterpiece, and it’s possible there wasn’t a television set among them.”
A.k.a. “The audience has changed, and we’re not going to follow that change, so we’ll blame them instead.”
Dear Ms. Eaton: You can either say “We’re lagging episode airing by 6 months, and it hasn’t hurt a bit”, or you can say “We’re lagging episode airing by 6 months, and our young viewers are switching to illegal downloads.” Pick one, at least in the same interview.
I am not, in general, down with “Information wants to be free”. However, when you provide a product in an obsolescent format and refuse to accommodate customers who prefer a newer format, you are digging your own grave, and not in an Edward Gorey way.
Cannnot NOT reblog the comment above. Remember how Chinese fans were able to legally watch the 3rd season mere hours after it aired in the UK and the 1st episode got nearly 5 million views within 24 hours? That’s what you do in the 21st century to beat piracy.
Also, I don’t understand why they spent like 99.9% of their PR funds on Downton but so little on Sherlock. We all know how frustrated Benedict felt about the weak PR for Sherlock in the US.

And look at his smile when he’s saying it! Soooo cute:

"and all these faces, oh how they adore you
with every blessing, every strength of the storm.
and it seems to me it all worked out so different
funny how distance and time they don’t change at all.
so may your worries, may your worries
never fall too loud.
and may you stay here, may you stay here
happy in your own skin,
on the ninth cloud.”
