Re: Chit-chat

*pretends not to be jealous* 

I'd so like to go some day, but with those prices as well as my anxiety disorder I'm not sure I can. But I know I can be happy for others, and I can enjoy the pictures and interviews etc.

Re: Chit-chat

Most Sherlock fans I've met (though only online) have been awesome. But my anxiety disorder and PTSD is pretty severe... 

But then again I managed to see Hamlet live! (though I pretty much ran out of the place after and couldn't even have handled waiting out for a chance for an autograph, if he was giving them at that time)... gah.

Re: Chit-chat

Ah, not the same kind of queuing, certainly. 
I too ended up running though not quite for the same reasons. It was such a fantastic time...!
I've started to save up for the next one -though in London not Las Vegas^^

Phantom I wondered, maybe you could make your going to a Sherlock con a challenge to fight your PTSD?
Besley I'm sure you'll be able to make it in the end. Look, last year was in April, this year in September...eventually they'll make one that 'fits' with Scottish holidays (but will not 'fit' French teachers ).

Re: Chit-chat

Ohoh Lautrela nope, don't start saying that.
Let me ask : who went to see Shakespeare 's plays at the time?
How did people know the Bible and everything?

Do you *really* think you would not understand his play?

Re: Chit-chat

Regarding the Bible:  originally, very few people could read.
They relied on the priest to read it to them and then it was in Latin, anyway!

Re: Chit-chat

Maybe I could... it'd certainly be worth it! But these days I can barely leave my flat... and I couldn't attend Comic Con while it was in Copenhagen either... and there's a free Doctor Strange event I can't attend either... they are showing some of it in 3D, which my best friend can't see with her blind eye so I'd have to go alone... 

But Hamlet was amazing, btw. I know I'm biased as I've read the play a million times and written my major project on it... but the way Ben's version was played it was very easy to follow; in a way the text could have been in a whole other language and you'd still be able to follow it. 

Unlike the version that started my Hamlet obsession... it was two guys, a chair, and a red cloth that both played poor Ophelia as it was swirled around and caressed; and the curtain that Polonius was stabbed through. You had to imagine pretty much everything.

Re: Chit-chat

Basically people were illiterate (most of them anyway).
And yet they understood the plays.
Because the people who went to see his plays were just 'average population' so had little to no education.

Now I agree that everything is not linked to context and situation but an awful lot is and even if you don't catch the finer details you would enjoy the play.

Re: Chit-chat

Shakespeare has a 'bad' rep of being fancy and all... but it's actually full of fart-jokes etc. 

My copy of Hamlet has notes at the bottom of each page, it helped me a lot the first many times reading it. Most book versions does if you ever want to give it a go. 

But yeah, I'm heavily biased.

Re: Chit-chat

I'm really curious... I just invested in my first victorian style corset... (it was on a very nice sale!)... I wonder if it could do anything for my back or not. Or if I'll even be able to wear it. 

I know the treatment for my condition (well if mum cared to take me to a doctor) would probably have been a corset-like thing. So let's see!

If anything I think I got it in a nice enough size that I don't need to tighten it too much and wear it for the aesthetic 

My best friend is a big fan of corsets; she says they help her back too since they hold her boobs up etc. So let's see

Re: Chit-chat

There was one local Sherlockian girl I used to speak to on Twitter...and a few of us at work are fans of the show.
But no, I feel nobody as fanatical as me!
That's why I travel all the way to London, to attend Sherlock Holmes society meetings when I can.
I think they have a group in Glasgow, but that's a bit of a trail from here.
This is why I belong to the forum!

Re: Chit-chat

Sounds like you had an awesome time, Lautrela! I'm glad you went! 

The only other 'Sherlockian' I know is my best friend... and well, she's much more Sherlocked... and that she got from me. 

We were even shocked to see a full movie theater when they showed TAB!

Re: Chit-chat

Nothing like seeing Sherlock on the big screen, with fellow fans all laughing at the same bits!

EDIT: knew there was somthing I wanted to say on here and I've just remembered what it was.
I did eventually get to the Sherlok Holmes pub, before I left London.
I spent ages, sitting on the loo: reading all of the graffiti on the back of the door.
There was all sorts, but I know some of you would be amused by the big love heart with an arrow through it and written on it 'Johnock'. 
Even in the loo I visibly rolled my eyes and audibly sighed!

I really regret not going there when I was in London! Maybe there'll be a next time! But good to hear that you did go!
