I’m reading Maurice and I came across a delightful little line,

"…he felt they were against the whole world,"

Sound familiar? Now for anyone who doesn’t know, Maurice was written in the 1913-1914 (around the time where Sir ACD was writing Sherlock) and is totally fucking hella gay (hence…

If they’re going to start basing movies off of popular fanfiction, I submit that Performance in a Leading Role is a much better option. 

Yes, please.

Done for Let’s draw Sherlock but I got carried away a bit :D It was a lot of fun to do, although some things could probably still be improved.
There are already some great drawings in there, so do have a look.

Every year at Comic Con I play a little game with the folks called ‘Geeks and Posers.’
Okay. Definitely I’m a poser, hands up.

Finally I know how I looked during my final Spanish exams.

deareje:

pressure point…

The first pic just makes me want to read a fanfic about an Inquisition AU, with Sherlock being a really mean Inquisitor and John being a heretic. As to the fanfic itself… Something about Feuchtwanger’s “Goya” caliber.

On the other hand I wouldn’t mind reading Feuchtwanger’s “Goya” AU Johnlock fanfic either. With Sherlock being Goya and John his muse. Or vice versa. Both is just fine. Yeah. I would like to read both. First this way round, then the other. And Moriatry can be the Spanish Inquisition. Or Mycroft can be the Spanish Inquisition. Or Mycroft is the good Spanish Inquisition and Moriarty is the evil Spanish Inquisition.

I should have been more daring [with The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes] but, unfortunately, the son of Conan Doyle was there.

I wanted to make Holmes a homosexual. That’s why he is on dope.

Look, we have been freed now from the Breen Office or the Johnston Office or that stupid thing.

In many respects, it’s terrifying because now any idiot and any pornographer can do anything.

But for the ones who are a little bit discriminating, who do it delicately, a grand new thing has opened.

But that was after [I made] Private Life.

The saddest thing about the film is that it was a waste of a year and a half of my life.

When you get to be my age, you say, 'Shit, if I just had the time back that I wasted on pictures that were failures.'

But I’m not ashamed of it. There are many pictures I wish I could scratch out, but this one I’m not ashamed of.

Billy Wilder, on his original intent for The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.



Reference Notes:

  • Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have stated TPLoSH was used as their main inspiration and “template” for Sherlock, and Gatiss considers Wilder to be one of “the best screenwriters in the world”. [x]
  • On Holmes’ drug use in TPLoSH, Wilder has said: "I should have been more daring. I have this theory. I wanted Holmes homosexual and not admitting it to anyone, including maybe even himself. The burden of keeping it a secret was the reason he took dope."  [x]
  • "The Breen Office" is in reference to Joseph Breen, one of the primary film censors who applied the Hays Code of “moral censorship guidelines” to Hollywood productions from the 1930s onwards: [x]
  • "The Johnston Office" is in reference to Eric Johnston, the president of the MPAA who took part in creating the Hollywood Blacklist, which denied employment based on alleged membership in or sympathy with the American Communist Party, involvement in progressive political causes, or refusal to assist in government investigations from the 1940s onwards.
