In June 1955, a document purporting to be Holmes’ last will and testament was published by Nathan L. Bengis in the London Mystery Magazine. In it, Holmes leaves “to the authorities of Scotland Yard, one copy of each of my trifling monographs on crime detection, unless happily they shall feel they have outgrown the need for the elementary suggestions of an amateur detective.”

Alfred Molina, what large biceps you have...


"All the better to sauce you with, my dear."


I can see you've been working on your body, Omar Sharif, and your humble moustache does not fool me about your intentions.


The captcha I was required to type for this Klaus Kinski/Joe Dallesandro bastardisation was "agree to disagree."

GETTIN' MA JIVE ON



So... this song played on the radio while I was driving home from work tonight and I thought it was rather awesome, for being RollingStones!disco.

But maybe it was just the perfect thing to listen to on the drive because it doesn't sound quite as great right now.

I had never actually heard this album before, yet I knew what it was, instantly.
