AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGH SEASON THREE IS SO FAR AWAAAAAAY.

I will have to flail for awhile before I can be coherent, so there's no danger of spoilers in this space yet.

Can we talk, though, about how completely fine Benedict Cumberbatch was in this episode? I mean, yeah yeah, Martin Freeman, actor extraordinaire, sekrit!boyfriend of my tiny domestic, curtain-buying fantasy life - but Ben was fucking delicious in this episode. I feel like the cameraman felt largely the same way; those shots lingered on his lips like no-one's business.

Rodrigo y Gabriela have a new album out on Friday, called Area 52, and it is fantastic. They do amped-up Spanish guitar (along with Spanish-guitared versions of rock songs, occasionally, although there are none on this album) and it's like musical caffeine.

You can listen to Area 52 here on the NPR website.

If you are having a crap day and want to feel better fast, I highly recommend any and all of their work. Here, try some!



Speaking of awesome music that makes me happy, does anyone have a copy of Sinnerman by Nina Simone that they'd be willing to share? iTunes will only sell me the whole "Best of Nina Simone" album, not that by itself, and I really only want the one track. (Yes, this is because it was on Sherlock S2E03, and now I want to hear it over and over.)
