    I am not a big fan of kids either, but on Halloween they are somehow cute . As much as I can see here that is, I can imagine some just take it as an opportunity to vandalize and be just brats, luckily they don't run around in my area (yet). Some people didn't even send out their kids this year for trick or treating because there are currently some weirdos who watched probably too much Suicide Squad or something scaring people dressed as clowns with chainsaws and baseball bats. I never met one, but they were going through the media recently. I wonder if they'd run away when I say 'I'M BATMAN' :lol:

    That's true. Yes, the used media store I usually buy my stuff from had The abominable bride as UK-Import long before it was broadcast here, so I hope they have the season out on DVD soon after again.

    Happy Halloween, here it is past now...but dia de los muertos is still on 1st Nov I think....? Love the candy skulls. This year I decorated my front door so the kids who dared to come out in our backyard would know that here's a Halloween-friendly person who has lots of sweets :D Well, five cute little witches managed to come up trick or treating, the rest of the candy I have as every year for myself, as I always buy way too much... :popcorn: Last year there was also just one time a bunch of kids ringing my door, they were obviously very courageous after my neighbour chased them away when they tried her door. So this time I thought I put out some cheap decoration to let people know not everyone's a Halloween-Grinch. Don't know if she doesn't like kids or just thinks Halloween sucks. In Germany it becomes more popular, but it's still far away from the big deal it is over there in America.

    Excellent - yes, I saw an ad in the shopping mall (they have a sort of news-tv-thingy going on there) that it is to be broadcast in Germany on new years. My only problem is at the moment that I need to find a spot where I can watch, because I am currently at home without tv connection (I have a tv, but only for DVD watching), and since my computer went down I can not see internet stuff either. Hopefully someone gets me a new laptop for christmas....*sigh* (otherwise there should be a 'public viewing' thing for Sherlock - they do it during football championship season, so why no Sherlock? :lol: )

    :lol: what's going on here? cats vs dogs? :D I can't say anything of experience with that, I am just glad I have rabbits, haha....they are useless and cute, and they know it! :P This is Schnitzel (yes, I gave her the name and she still has it, haha...). I saved her 3 years ago from a guy who wanted to give her away as 'christmas-roast-to-be' - she lives now in a garden with other rabbits and very nice (vegetarian :D ) people, and as much as I know she is still well and happy.

    I saw Ali G a while ago for the first time (in english, good that I am fluent in british 'urban language', haha....in german it's probably horrible - like when I saw Wayne's World back then in german it wasn't funny. But when I had seen them in Saturday Night live it was always funny - there was a time when MTV was broadcast only in english, so I saw them there first. I know it's difficult to translate certain sayings into another language, there are also lots of german jokes who would not be funny in english either. But that's the good thing about that I learned english very early - I get a lot of things most people who had only school english would totally miss...), it's from that film, I remember. I was a bit sceptical about watching the film at all, but Martin's hilarious in it!

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    I'll give you a little hint, shall I? Dr. Stephen Strange's middle name is Vincent .... Ah, the one from the english Hammer-Films and all that? Legendary actor of course - then I know who you mean...thanks, I'll give it a try!

    Andrew Scott News

    For the people living in or close to Bonn / Ruhrgebiet, Andrew Scott will be attending the MAGICCON in April (formerly HobbitCon/RingCon, whatever....) http://www.magiccon.de/de/ Would love to go, but it's pretty expensive and I probably would not get a rabbit-sitter that time. I hope for the next Comic Con in Berlin. September/October 2017... Please?

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    Could not get to the page either. But anyway, BLÖD (we call it that, which means stupid) is not my newspaper of choice either, haha...so not a lot to miss. Meditation with Benedict Strange would be cool though. By the way, here's a game you can win the tacky bedcovers and a 100€ voucher for the Elbenwald store, funnily advertised as 'In Bed with Benedict Cumberbatch'....: https://www.elbenwald.de/Gewinnspiel-Ins-Bett-mit-Benedict-Cumberbatch-100-Euro-Gutschein?utm_source=All&utm_campaign=DoctorStrangeGewinnspiel&utm_medium=email&sPartner=sCampaign529 By the way, does anybody know which actor's look Dr.Strange is based on? That's the question to enter the win. I have not the slightest idea... On wednesday I went extra early to the movie theatre, so on my way I made a little tour to the Zoo Palast to see if there was anything interesting to watch, but it was probably just a private showing with a few people who also won a meet and greet with Benedict somewhere on the radio or whatever, so there was no red carpet or anything, just the usual. People waiting in front of the building and all that, and a huuuge Dr.Strange advertisement. Okay, So there was nothing really to miss if you had no tickets for that particular film screening with Benedict, Tilda and the director, who visited Berlin that day... So I went to my destination of choice to see the film in english of course, the Sony Center Original. And it was just awesome. I don't say much to spoil no ones fun, only that the waiting for the film was worth it. I saw a bit of Sherlock in the beginning, as Benedict had to play that arrogant bit. :D But furthermore I saw neither any Sherlock nor Hannibal references, and I was superimpressed by Tilda Swinton as ancient one. I mean I know she is one really brilliant actress, but that role suited her so well, and she looks beautiful with no hair. Also, I laughed a LOT (great dialogues and sitcom), and the post-credit scene (the first one, there are two) was hilarious - guest appearance by Thor is the only thing I say! :lol: So sit until the last credit has rolled through, there are 2 post-credit-scenes.

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    Today, today...just a few hours to go.....(then it's movie-time, yay!). :popcorn: (...and I just noticed I am in a different theatre than Benedict. He's in Berlin as much as I have heard (...typical, I have tickets already, and THEN I get to know about stuff...) for a premiere at Berlin Zoo Palast theatre tonight. :o Why do they chose that stupid ugly theatre for premieres recently? I haven't been there for ages, but I have heard there have been some premiere events. (usually are premieres at Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz) *Hmpf* Oh well...will enjoy the film anyway, I'll tell you guys on friday or so when I am back online. Good that nobody said Mads is here, otherwise I'd freak out and go camping at the Zoo right now.... :P ! )

    Wasn't me.I blame the dog, he makes me think I am wonderful and perfect. :P That's why I love pets. When you think you're shit and are utterly depressed, they make you feel like a functioning person.

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    another one for Arcadia, by James Marsters :D (and you're right, he did not even get a chair. Only for the panels they had a sofa. There you see how many people were there to see him talk, but there were not half of the hall full when he played music...) Anyway, I love the Lorne - cosplay, they went by one time in the merch hall, and I saw too late that it was Lorne, they went by so fast I just saw the green and red and thought 'I know this cosplay, this is awesome!', until I could identify it - so I could not go up to them and tell them how cool and authentic it was. I am sure Andy Hallet watched from the heavens (R.I.P.) and was proud that his role was honoured in such a detailed way! So cool to see it in the video again now...the Drusillas are cute, too. Oh and Castiel! <3 Oh and today I bought the pre-Comic Book to the Dr.Strange-moviestory. I already see why the guy who Mads plays became the 'evil dude' (though I think he's not really evil, and not for evil's sake, at least the way I see it and can understand the reasons - so it's a likeable villain, probably like the way we love Loki too, for example - to stay in the Marvel-universe... ;) ), and I have not yet come to the point when he choses Dr.Strange as Nemesis, but I have a hunch what made the story to go after Dr.Strange and those two characters being opposites...I think I will read the end of the little book on the train tonight, then I will know more, and I can not wait for wednesday night!!! :popcorn:

    Harry Potter + other JK Rowling

    I am looking forward to the film, I am just not sure about Colin Farrell being cast for that....I try to be open for the acting, but I only like him usually in weird roles such as '7 Psychos' or the one where he's in Belgium ( I don't know really the english title, I think it is called 'In Bruge' ?), I can't imagine him as person in a Harry Potter film (he so ruined Miami Vice! ;P), so I hope it's not too terrible ;P ....I hope rather it's like Ryan Reynolds in 'Deadpool'. I didn't like him at all, but as Deadpool very convincing and surprisingly awesome... Yes, I am sure there will be a novel afterwards, too - I just wonder what the other films will be about - also the beasts, or maybe different themes from the magic world? (I want one with lots of Quidditch games, haha...)

    Recently watched movies

    Cool. Which reminds me of that I wanted to see 'Pride & Prejudice and zombies' , haha....missed it when it was in cinema. Next up after Dr.Strange will be 'Swiss Army Man' with Daniel Radcliffe as farting drowned corpse. :lol: I love the weird stuff, also it had good reviews after the Fantasy Film Festival, I missed it there because it was sold out already a few days before.

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    Thanks, oh okay - I think I saw a few there, but don't remember properly. I don't watch BB, that's why I didn't know. Maybe we should make a separate (non specially Sherlock-themed) thread for Cons, so I don't spam all here with the Comic Con stuff. I just actually mentioned it here because I saw few Dr.Strange Costumes ;P One week to go for me, on Wednesday seeing Dr. Strange here, yay! @ Arcadia: James Marsters actually played a little concert on friday for the comic con people exclusively. Unfortunately the atmosphere was quite shit, like in the big cold empty hall and people sitting like chickens in a row, James just had an acoustic guitar and a few lovely stories, so this all did not fit together. I think if they had at least dimmed the light a bit, it would have not been so cold and impersonal. Also not many people there, maybe 200-300, while the Panel next day was packed with people when he was there. Not really James' fault, it was just a shit environment to stand alone with an acoustic guitar, it would have been nicer if it had been maybe a living room-like little club, you know. Also some said he would play 2 hours, he only played 1. I am sure the organizing people screwed him over too by the high extra ticket price, and the poor guy had to drink cheap Lidl Discounter water on stage. Pretty much disappointing for all I guess. But the rest of the Con was fun, as long as you didn't really want some autographs and pics with the 'big stars' such as Christopher Lloyd, for all was expensive and you had to stand in line for ages. For me it was pretty relaxed after I got in the first day (it so helped to have a VIP Ticket, no standing in line at the entrance, yay!), it was just so overwhelming all the colourful things and many people there....was my first Con after all. ;)

    Benedict Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange"

    (the videos are not by me nor have I seen myself in one of them, but it's a bit 'first impressions' for those who wonder how it was like...btw Jack Sparrow says 'why is always the rum gone, I must drink beer' :lol: ....I love the catwoman from Batman returns! ) Hey, just shortly checking in again. I had a post ready and then the 'obscene words error' popped up again *arrrgh*, and I don't have much time to look which one it was.... I just wanted to tell that there were surely people as Sherlock and Hannibal, Dr.House, I just probably didn't recognize them. I saw a few Castiels (Supernatural), Game of Thrones a LOT (even though I do not watch the show I know what they look like) ! Also many people being Dr.Who and friends.... What is Hazmat BB? I have no idea...is that Manga / Anime or something? There were a lot of characters from Manga/Anime, but don't ask me what their names are, for me that is all Pokemon, haha...it's cute though, I love the style of the japanese culture.

    Yes, we're all ok, thanks - I left a little post in the Dr.Strange-thread. I try to find some more time by the weekend. Last weekend was awesome at Comic Con, so much to tell and catch up with, and still no computer at home... :facepalm: :comp2:
