Just as I suspected....

Anyone got any ideas?

Yeah, I know, new movie. Sherlock Holmes is not supposed to be hot...that's just wrong.

Dec. 28 edit: I saw this film, I confess. Let's just say I cannot decide whether tedium or vulgarity was dominant. What a stinker!

So the case of the missed mouse is clarified?

"Well, something's afoot! Sorry, I just couldn't help myself!

And wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas, Susan :)

Steve said...

Looks like the Hound of the BAskervilles has struck again...

Fresca said...

Mugatu?
(Star Trek reference...)

Diana Ramirez said...

Worse (or better) yet, Watson is hot, too!

ArtSparker said...

Diana - I know. Also just plain wrong.

Ginga Squid said...

Can't wait to see it! Like hot....
Your beautiful cat?

ArtSparker said...

GS- Yes, but sometimes we must give these physical desires up in pursuit of thematic integrity.

It's wrong, I tell you, wrong!

I may read the reviews.

Happy Christmas AS.

When I saw the trailer for the new movie I scoffed a bit myself--Jude Law as Watson?! Impossible! But I will probably go see it anyway. I did, after all, actually watch the bastardized Hollywood version of Mansfield Park. Even though the DVD cover claimed something to the effect of, "this sexy young cast sizzles onscreen."

"The cat is obviously a master of disguise, for it looks exactly like a Samoyed to me" said Holmes.

"Watson? Where are you, Watson?" he continued.

There was no reply.

Happy Christmas Susan.X.

Tom said...

hot? hmmm...this looks to be a silly action movie, not at all the Sherlock Holmes i grew up reading. I presume that is a cat!?

Megan said...

I'm seeing it. My son has a man-crush on RDJr...

ArtSparker said...

Megan - I am beginning to grasp the meaning of the phrase "It's complicated".

ArtSparker said...

Titus -how very acute.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Using all his his incredible powers of deduction Holmes concluded it must be a Cat Burglar

ArtSparker said...

TFE - You may have a fight on your hands with Titus, unlikely as that may sound.

Cláudia said...

"Just as I suspected... the evil cat tried to eat the Bird of Prophecy, but Anthony was able to save the holy creature by throwing his antique jar in the cat's head. Now all the best words Anthony collected to write his Great Novel are scrambled in the floor. The crime is solved but now there is a hell of a mess to clean here. Let's go home, Jude... I mean, Watson!"

ArtSparker said...

Cláudia - complex, with hints of oak and berries.

Celeste Bergin said...

Sherlock must be shocked!...a huge white sleeping mammal!

ma grande folle de soeur said...

happy Xmas & the best for the next decade : )) kisses

Rick said...

I'm allergic to cats [yeah, yeah], actually, but I really like the angle on this one. The cat actually slept through this? ;-)

"At last, Macavity, you are defeated. And now for your master, Dr. Moriarty!"

("...And they say that all the Cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time
Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!" -- T.S. Eliot)

justdoodleit said...

The adventure of the sleeping white cat!

The Crow said...

"See here, Watson," Holmes said pointedly. "This is not a cat afoot, but a dog. See the arrangement and size of the toe pads?"

"Yes, and I've noticed the thickness of its claws, as well, Old Boy. Not feline would allow its claws to go to the dogs in that manner," Watson answered, rather cattily.

Happy New Year, Susan, 'Locky-baby and darling Dr. W.

:)

grrl + dog said...

how relaxed is the fluffy one?

ArtSparker said...

They perk up in the expectation of getting petted - there are two of them - if pats are not forthcoming, they are immediately overcome with ennui - or possibly relaxation.

Dominic Rivron said...

"What's the world coming to, Watson? First, the Giant Rat of Sumatra* - and now this!"

*Are you into Holmes stories? the giant rat crops up in one - it's one of several amusing references to stories that were never written up, favourite being that of "Isadora Persano, the well-known journalist and duellist, who was found stark staring mad with a match box in front of him which contained a remarkable worm said to be unknown to science."

ArtSparker said...

Dominic - Read and reread when I was a teenager. My first job after college was at a Swiss boarding school just down the road from the Reichenbach Falls.

Dominic Rivron said...

I like obscure "claims to fame" - that's a good one!

hahaaa...you have a great sense of humour. I love the perspective too.
