I’ll be right here waiting to get jumped by a gang of Cumberbitches.
Sherlock Holmes: Shhh.
How cool and eerie is this?
I subscribe to the belief that if something is awesome, mashing it together with more awesome things makes it even more awesome.
The owl is missing.
So last night I was out with my boys, and we spent over an hour just talking about geek cred. All geek roads lead to BBC programming. This is a proven fact. We hit Doctor Who, Sherlock, Black Books, Jonathan Creek, QI, and most of the more popular romping grounds.
Then we got to Top Gear. I’ve had a couple of friends, who watch nearly as much BBC programming as I do, tell me that they don’t watch Top Gear, because they’re not into cars. I need to say this again and people need to understand it:
Top Gear is NOT JUST ABOUT CARS!
Top Gear is about history, it’s about art, it’s about driving technique, it’s about absurd humor, it’s about three guys who are the best of friends having the time of their lives doing exactly what they want to do. Top Gear, despite being full of explosions, fender benders, and squealing tires, is still highly educational, and exceedingly fun. It is a celebration of technology!
I urge everyone who has even a passing interest in BBC programming to watch any three episodes of Top Gear. I guarantee that you will be entertained even if you don’t decide to watch it regularly. I’ve you are one of the unfortunate few that watched the U.S. version of Top Gear on the History channel without first seeing the original, I apologize and I urge you to give the original a try.
Stayin Alive with Moriarty (by ActinOutLoud)
Stayin’ Alive is one of my favorite songs of all time. Too bad there’s no footage of Moriarty doing the hustle. That would be TOO perfect.
