Happy Geek Thursday!

Ah, there are so many reasons why I am a happy geek girl today. To wit:

1. The new series of Sherlock. Obviously.

2. Casting spoiler alert! Speaking of Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch has been confirmed as the villain for the next Star Trek film!

3. Also speaking of Benedict Cumberbatch, there will be a fourth series of Cabin Pressure! (Don't miss the picture at this link.)

4. I am currently reading the 2011 dystopian science fiction novel Ready Player One, and it is brilliant.

5. Last but not least, the first single from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games (produced by the legendary T. Bone Burnett) has been released. Perhaps this is the lullaby Katniss sings to Rue? Here it is:




SHERLOCK: "Geek Interpreter." What’s that?
JOHN: It’s the title.
SHERLOCK: What does it need a title for?
- from "A Scandal in Belgravia," Sherlock

There's even a website which says what happened in these mentioned adventures: http://www.johnwatsonblog.co.uk/.

No sign, yet, of the Giant R/b/c/h/m/v/at of Sumatra though.

That's brilliant!

No sign at all. Perhaps it's a story for which the viewing public is not yet ready? ;)

I squeed aloud when I saw the news about Benedict and Star Trek. I can't believe we have to wait more than a year to see it!

I know! So much waiting for so much goodness! At least we'll have The Hobbit in the interim. ;)

Hooray on the Batch news! And that song is beautiful. I can't wait to see this flick.

Hooray indeed!

I can't wait, either. It's going to be amazing, I just know it. I'm glad you like the song, too. I thought it was lovely.
