Vidder: MARVELous Fanvids I’ve had Sherlock on the brain recently. Okay, maybe BBC’s adaptation is always on my mind in […]

Apparently we needed more proof that Benedict Cumberbatch is cooler than we’ll ever be. He’s conquered the internet […]
It’s no secret that I love Tom Hiddleston.
We’re obviously meant for each other. I’ve been crushing on him since Return to Cranford (that’s right, I’m a pre-Thor Tom hipster), and I haven’t looked back since.
Tom has quite a few exciting projects coming up, including the long-awaited gothic romance Crimson Peak, the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light, High Rise, and The Night Manager (co-starring Hugh Laurie). He will also begin filming for Kong: Skull Island soon, and I can’t say I’ve ever looked forward to anything starring a giant gorilla until now.
At any rate, no matter where he is filming, what he is promoting, or what premiere he is attending, Tom always finds a way to melt my heart or make me squee (usually both at the same time).
ICYMI, the Collected Mutineer and I spent last weekend squeeing over the opportunity to see London’s latest production of Hamlet. She, because Benedict Cumberbatch, and I, well, because Hamlet. It’s my favourite play, and I’ve read it so many times that I no longer need the book; it’s just a nice prop to have in my hands so I don’t appear to be mad when I passionately quote the “My thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth” speech.
So without further ado, here are my thoughts on Hamlet, directed by Lyndsey Turner and starring Bereft Cindersworn (spelling?).

Sherlocked has come and gone. Costumes were worn and photos were taken, but what I’m left with is a general feeling of dissatisfaction.
I wrote previously about my trepidation, and sadly, a good deal of it came to pass. Make what you will of the list below.
Since the announcement that BBC’s Sherlock would have its very own convention, fans have been aflutter (the Collective team included). Sherlocked: The Official Sherlock Convention is taking place in London on the weekend of April 24-26, 2015. A second con will take place in the States at a later date.
So why are so many Sherlockians unhappy?
Well, I’ve got a list. It’s a short list, I grant you, but an important one.
1.) Sherlocked is expensive.
Like hold-up-let-me-sell-my-kidney expensive.

We kid you not.
Why is it so pricey, you ask? It’s confusing, I know. At first glance, the one-day and weekend tickets look similar to other conventions. A standard one-day pass is £29 (approximately $43, depending on the rate of exchange). That isn’t vastly different from other conventions that take place in London, such as MCM Comic Con or London Super Comic Con. The catch is that a one-day ticket (or even a weekend pass) to Sherlocked doesn’t guarantee you much of anything.
Happy Monday, Collectors! Love is in the air, and even though Valentine’s Day is still 12 days […]
