oh Sherlock, my dear Sherlock

Congrats on those magnificent Emmy wins! Still baffles me that this is show that comes on for three weeks every two years and even it’s a 90-minute episode each, there aren’t a lot of episodes at all; they barely have that much screntime unlike other shows and YET it managed to receive international recognition, awards, a cult following and a massive fandom. 

I mean you must be kidding yourself if you don’t think Benedict Cumberbatch is the face of the Internet that’s currently sweeping the world (Time magazine?! amazing oscar-worthy movies left and right? rabid fangirls? even his fellow actors are in awe of him) 

Christ congrats you guys. Amazing work, really. 


I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.


i always end up thinking about the economic damage in superhero movies


yes i lift.. im an elevator thats all i do


Sometimes you stop talking to someone because you keep telling yourself that if they wanted to talk to you, they would.

"Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place."

me in an argument 



my favorite thing is the fact that the national team were the epitome of professionalism, discipline and class. they built the own resort hotel, training ground, football fields, health center, road, brought in their state-of-the-art equipment etc(these germans leave no stone unturned, my goodness) and they’ll leave these behind to the locals, on top of the ambulance a they’ve also donated. they visited brazilian villages and interacted with the locals and were always so rfiendly and warm. even after the 7-1 thrashing of brazil during the match, they remained humble about it, to the point of apologetic all over their social networking accounts. they have the coolest and funnest photos of them sailing, dancing with the natives, etc. they looked and played and moved like a team. I’m not even sure they’re consistently conscious about it but it’s beatuiful for any outsider to witness their amazing team spirit. 

This is a victory not only for the players, but also to their family and friends, the coaching staff godammit (GOOD JOB COACHING STAFF), their medical team, their yoga instructor, the football association, angela merkel, the german people, everyone.

more or less a decade ago, dfb took a good look at l themselves and were hell-bent on improving their system. they invested so much into creating a better, improved footballing philosophy. now they are reaping the rewards. amazing grassroots culture, youth development, sports education, etc. some say this is classic german efficiency and i agree. congrats to everyone involved, especially to those who worked hard for all these successes behind the glare of the media limelight.

i’m not german, tbh, but it is impossible to feel nothing but passion and pride for the nationalmannschaft. congratulations Germany nt :) 

take a bow.
