That whole meeting them before we usually see them as older men in their 50s is :/// for me because Holmes is 27 and Watson is 29 when they meet, and they’re only 60 and 62 in the chronologically final stories. So like most of the stories take place when Holmes and Watson are like. Young men. Thirties and forties. And frankly they have their shit together, for the most part. More so than. Some adapters have seen fit to portray anyway.
I do think there was a lot of pain and sorrow around Watson’s marriage, since years later, Holmes describes it as his only betrayal. But idfk there was plenty of dramatic potential there without throwing assassins and shit into the mix. Just my humble onion.
Starday Records, my pick for the most important label in the history of country and western, gave Link Wray his start in the business. They released several 45s by Link Wray and his two brothers - Doug Wray and Lucky Wray in 1957.
Some months from now, The 45th President of the United States of America will be visited by a young girl in a dream. In this dream, she will tell him two truths and one lie. The truths will be devastating to him and he will pass them off as nothings said in dreams. The lie will comfort him, restore the cracks in his ego left by the truths. He will believe the lie.
In the waking world, he will speak of the lie as though it were truth. It will be spoken by him, and spoken to him.
When the lie is spoken, the little girl will appear in the corner of his eye. Far in the crowd, down the hall, in his office. And each time the lie is said, the little girl will come closer, and closer, and closer.
One day she will take him by the hand.
It will burn him.
I thought I’d put it on a paper poppet to use however … .

Last night we watched the interview of Laurence Fishburne on The Daily Show. He never said the name of the current President. He just kept saying 45.
I really like that.
I have this UPG that 45 is an evil magic user and every time his name is said it gives him power. He just strikes me as an abusive ass who lives, not just believes, lives that all press is good press. Like, he’s got bins somewhere that fill up when you say or type his name.
I can’t say it. It leaves a terrible unsettling feeling in me. Ian B and I have been struggling with ideas for resistance buttons at Portland Button Works. We dont want to use his image or his name so I really enjoyed Laurence Fishburne using 45.
45 is now. 45 is one in a series of Presidents. 45 is one in a series of numbers. There will be a 46. I am just going to say 45 from now on.
