Day 42: Fangirl Graphics

11 Feb

Brace yourselves. This is a fangirl post.

Let’s start at the beginning. I’ve told you that the impetus to the creation of this blog was my increasingly alarming addiction to television. What you don’t know is that while this is completely true, there was one particular show that was the actual reason. I thought it was the most brilliant show I’d ever seen. Still do. I loved it so much that I watched it over and over again. I think it was when I was about to do my 5th or 6th run that I realized my love was getting out of hand (and that’s when I embarked on this project).

That most glorious of shows, ladies and gentlemen, is SHERLOCK. (Where my Cumberbitches at?)

In this show, there is a wonderful adorable amazing person who plays the character of Dr. John Watson. He “sees the poetry in the everyday man” and plays his characters extremely well. He likes to wear three-piece suits with ties and loves the whole 60’s mod sensibility. He has an extensive vinyl record collection. He deejays sometimes and goes crazy on the dancefloor with everyone else the rest of the time. This man’s name is MARTIN FREEMAN. And he is also made of kittens.

(Really tempted to do a picspam/gifspam but I don’t want to scare you off so I shall stop myself. If you want that though, click here.)

You know this man. You’ve seen him everywhere. He was in The Office UK where he played the original Jim character, Tim. He played John the porn star in Love Actually. He was in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. He played motherfucking Arthur Dent in Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.

If you’ve seen all these things and still don’t remember him, that’s just a testament to how good he is at playing these regular guy characters that you don’t realize that this is one actor playing all these roles. I remember him because I’m completely in love with him but that’s just me so I don’t blame you if you don’t recognize him. But all that’s about to change because he is about to be catapulted into the ultra-mainstream and you will remember his name, dammit, for he has recently been cast as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s LOTR prequel, The Hobbit.

Yesterday was the first press conference for the movie. And he said a lot of lovely sweet funny things in it. He was so excited, it was adorable! And as;ldfa;lksdjhfl I love him so I made a graphic of one of the things that he said.

"Profanity is the linguistic crutch of the inarticulate motherfucker." I don't care how inarticulate he is. Look at him in that goddamned suit!

I love him. In case that wasn’t clear.

PLEASE WATCH SHERLOCK. IT IS BRILLIANT. MARTIN FREEMAN IS AMAZING IN IT. THE GUY WHO PLAYS SHERLOCK (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) IS EVEN BETTER BUT THAT IS SOMETHING TO FLAIL ABOUT IN ANOTHER POST. JUST GO WATCH IT NOW! YOU WON’T BE SORRY!

See you tomorrow!

EDIT: I POSTED THIS ON MY TUMBLR AND IF YOU WISH TO HAVE IT ON YOUR BLOG, PLEASE REBLOG IT FROM THE ORIGINAL POST THERE. PLEASE DO NOT REPOST AND THEN NOT GIVE CREDIT. IT KIND OF SUCKS WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT. THANK YOU AND HAVE A NICE DAY.
