BOOM.

Watson: Holmes, let me ask you a question. I hope I'm not being presumptuous, but... there 'have' been women in your life, haven't there?
Holmes: The answer is yes... you're being presumptuous. Good night.

Ruminating about Gotham

angrybell:

So .. Jada Pinkett Smith is becoming the female version of James Spader, stealing all her scenes.

But, can someone tell me if Alfred is going to continue being this way? As he’s written right now, he’s not the unflappable Alfred I know from various versions of Batman. He’s certainly not anywhere near the interesting version Michael Caine put together with Nolan in the films. He’s more like the hapless Lestrade that Sean Pertwee plays on Elementary, sans the coconut water.

I really like the way he’s playing Alfred, because this is Alfred years before the one Michael Caine played. The two most important people in his life have just died, and he’s suddenly confronted with the fact that he, an unmarried and childless bachelor, has to raise an extremely intense, complicated, and above-averagely intelligent child.

Would you be unflappable if you suddenly went from the guy who makes dinner and puts out people’s clothes to being the sole guardian and protector of a child billionaire? I certainly wouldn’t. He has no idea how to raise Bruce, and he’s scared to death Bruce is going to seriously hurt himself, and it’s going to be his fault.

Once we get to Michael Caine, Alfred has had 20 years to establish his relationship with Bruce, and Bruce has had 20 years to learn to trust Alfred and regard him as a father figure. In Gotham, we’re literally days from the Waynes’ deaths. That’s a completely different context.

Filed Under: Texts I Receive from my Mother

Mom: Where be-est thou mine own true child?
Me: I be-est at mine place of labor where I am most always on the night of Thor, Mother of mine.
Mom: I must express my sincere gratitude at the receiving of thine communication, for thou knowest thy mother finds it a sore challenge to track thine ever-changing schedule.
Me: I am honored to be bestowed with thy gratitude but am hesitant to bring to thy attention that I have worked on the night of Thor for many moons.
Mom: Hark! Didst thou takest all mine left-over roasted vegetables THOU SMALL IMP?
Me: I confess, I am wracked with the crippling emotion of guilt, but on my honor, I was vastly an hungered!
Mom: Thou shalt be placed in the stocks immediately upon thy return home and shall be fed with bread and water for two days unless thou repent in sack cloth and ashes!

today my best friend asked me “why cinderella’s shoe fell off if it fit her perfectly”

She was running because her time was up. Sorry to be the practical wet blanket here, but I have shoes that fit me perfectly, and they fall off if I run, too, especially if they’re high heels.

“Dan Andriacco hits it out of the park with Rogue Gallery, a collection of short mystery stories featuring the two unlikely brothers-in-law and modern day Holmes and Watson of Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody. Narrator Cody is a sardonic, witty newlywed everyman while McCabe (rotund in the tradition of Nero Wolfe) is an avid, oddball Sherlockian with formidable powers of his own. Andriacco’s distinctive tone delights in a similar manner to the brilliant M.C.Beaton with his combination of cozy, small town detail and hilarious and pointed observations of its denizens. The cozy elements are all in the settings, here including an all-female art show, Christmas and Halloween parties, college politics and the developing relations of Cody and his new bride as they navigate newlywed issues. 
But unlike many mysteries with cozy elements, Andriacco’s plots are masterful. Like a skilled close-up magician, Andriacco lulls you into what appears to be quiet Midwestern sense of normalcy, only to turn up an ace from his sleeve with a murderous surprise. You’re in the hands of a master of mystery plotting here. Rogues Gallery is a delightful read, hard to put down, and highly recommended. And did I say fun?”
Hollywood screenwriter Bonnie MacBird, author of TRON

Dan is a great writer, one of my favorite contemporary mystery novelists.
