Mr. Cumberbatch could at least relate to this aspect of the character. He recalled an encounter he’d had in January at the Golden Globe Awards, where the PBS “Masterpiece” executive producer Rebecca Eaton taunted him affectionately with a trophy that had just been won by “Downton Abbey.”
He said: “I just looked at it and went: ‘Begone, woman. Bring it back when it says “Sherlock Holmes” or Steven Moffat or myself — someone else who’s more deserving than the second series of “Downton Abbey.” ’ ”
Exhibiting a diplomacy that his Holmes is not known for, Mr. Cumberbatch stopped himself from saying anything more about the rival television series.
“I know too many people who are in it,” he said. “I thought the first series was good. That’s what I’ll say.”
Oh snap! I haven’t watched the second season and now I think I need to.
Free entrance to all National Parks April 21-29. I hope all of you guys take advantage of this! If you do, take a picture holding up a sign with a FYHiking shoutout, the name of the park, and submit… I’ll be sure to post. ;)
Enjoy it, guys!
Hoping you guys are taking advantage of this/having a good time!
Must go to Bandelier tomorrow or Friday! I have the whole day to myself! I haven’t been there yet since moving up, yet Joe has taken our visitors there.
"War" by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. This is the one song that really stood out to me when I saw the Hunger Games, and it wasn’t on either album of music from the film. The sousaphone sounds amazing with the bass turned up loud in the theater, and it immediately made me think of my sister, a tuba!
I have a scoop, thanks to Mel pointing it out to me at work!
There was a press release yesterday put out by Starbucks and the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. We have easy access to it on our portal computer at work. Six new Starbucks cafes will open at the various Disney parks, including one at the newly renovated Disney California Adventure’s Buena Vista Street this summer.
"At Disney California Adventure, Starbucks will be located in the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe on Buena Vista Street, a place that transports guests to 1920s Los Angeles when Walt Disney arrived in California and a cup of coffee was the perfect way to jumpstart a busy day. The store’s location plays off the Spanish/Mexican architecture of the period, and baristas will wear 1920s-inspired attire."
Okay, peace out Los Alamos, I’m going to be a barista for Disney now, kthxbye.
