We had pizza last night and then this happened.
We asked for it to be done, but they did it, though!
Here’s a sample of the “I believe in Sherlock Holmes” ribbons I’ll be bringing to Gallifrey One this weekend. Yes, they are shock blanket orange. (This photo brought to you by Jack Harkness, the sonic screwdriver, and my copy of the original Sherlock Holmes stories.)
Moriarty was real.
Feel free to download and use, but if you claim it as your own I will burn the heart out of you.
My lovely friend and I put these up ages ago. Thankfully, I’ve finally found my camera.
(The first one spawned a short war. I shall see if I can get all the pictures off my phone…)
So I got The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes out of Southsea Library today and look what was in it!
Oxford: Believing in Sherlock since 1096.
I may have been responsible for most of these.
So I bought a button maker! I’ve had all of these button ideas for ages and had no means of making them, so I splurged a few days ago and bought one off the following website (if you want one, hurry! There’s a sale where the $80 one is only $30)…
The first button I made was inspired by the famed “Believe in Sherlock” movement, and the classic “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster. I tried to make it as Sherlock-y as possible, with the background color the color of the Purple Shirt of Sex…
…and featuring a modified vector of the ORIGINAL “Believe in Sherlock” post by EarlFoolish (totes check out this blog, it’s awesome) in the mustard yellow from The Blind Banker.
I’m currently in the midst of asking permission from Earl, but if I sold these buttons, would anyone be interested?
Somebody added to my ‘I believe in Sherlock Holmes’ note.
Who are you mysterious Sherlockian?
Phase 2 of Operation: Believe in Sherlock is complete. (Phase 1 is here)
You see, Tylgrey and I have access to a poster printer…a very large poster printer…meaning the ability to print 3.5 ft x 5 ft posters…there was no way we could pass the chance to use it for this up…we also have a recently closed down movie theatre nearby, meaning we thought it wouldn’t be a big fuss for the owners to have anything up there, or at least less of a fuss than anywhere else.
So we walked over early Saturday morning, armed with duct tape and two large posters. We may or may not have had some observers. We couldn’t stop laughing while putting them up. The phrase “We can’t giggle. It’s a crime scene!” might have come up.
They’ve probably taken them down by now, but even if they have, it was entirely worth it! And perhaps we’ve spread the word to some of those poor gullible souls in Towson who thought Richard Brook was real!
We got back to school and went to grab something to eat when we came across an advertisement holder on one of the tables in which someone had written on the back of one of the pamphlet pages “The cake is a LIE”. So, we wrote back “So is Richard Brook!”
We just can’t stop!
