Freeman, meanwhile, was known for playing the put-upon Tim Canterbury (the equivalent to Jim Alpert) in the British version of The Office and the love struck porn double John in Love Actually. Cumberbatch has won raves playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness and Dr.
Strangely Out of Time June 14, 2010, 3:25 am Filed under: Gillette Castle, Sherlock Holmes | Tags: Buses, Gillette Castle, Kids, Play, Postmortem, Research, Sherlock Holmes, The Rivers I did manage to finally finish annotating the Encyclopaedia intro, and moved on to reviewing Act I Scene 3 of Gillette’s play.
I finished Act I Scene 3 of Gillette’s play today. As it turns out, Gillette had also written a one act sequel to his play.
A man also recommended the play Postmortem by Ken Ludwig. I also spent quite a bit of time on Literature Resource Center looking for theory.
That ledge was where they could rest their heads.” Trying to come in without tickets and complaining about lack of signage when there’s a big honking sign on the sidewalk on the way down from the Visitor’s Center. I sounded like a broken record: “Don’t touch!” “It’s a light switch!” People were looking for the train.
“Is it haunted?” x 10000000 “Hey honey, did you that Gillette invented cheese?” WHAT?!?! “I didn’t know coffee had been invented yet!” Guy walking around with a flashlight, peering at everything.
In case we were wondering why the tower is closed off: “People could jump off the balcony!” (said in a very cheerful tone) Couple wanted to know where every piece in the art gallery was originally kept in the house. Very cranky little girl, “I didn’t know you could only look at stuff !” Bus of Wacky Women “Do you know the meaning of the word, hooker ?” “Was this the bedroom?” “No, it was the lounge.
End of the First Week Thursday was a gloomy, chilly day. I like trail clearing, because I am especially interested in whether any invasive species have taken up residence where plants have been allowed to grow up.
A professor from Conn visited and was very interested in the house. She asked about previous Gillette scholarship and the archives.
She was especially interested in the history of the Italian workers that were part of the team of builders. I ended up forgetting to bring the Gillette play, (and my phone and my umbrella) to work, so I started getting some information from the introduction of the Encyclopaedia Shylockian. I really need to learn the abbreviations for the stories anyway, so I am better prepared to read theory pieces.
I also had Volume II of the Complete Sherlock Holmes, but I decided that I should probably go through a Doyle canon review thoroughly and in order. I finally found a source to start looking at theory.
Friday was a bit busier than Thursday, but it was cloudy and cool again. Looking through Sherlock Holmes stories made me remember a student in my Lit class who did not like Sherlock Holmes, because she felt that the stories were predictable and cliché.
The minute details are fascinating and reflect Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s and William Gillette’s writing styles quite well. Most people adamantly deny, but honestly, there’s no concrete evidence either way and I don’t want to sound like a homophobic prick.
There was also the woman who wouldn’t believe me when I told her that the tower was closed because of fire codes. I leave a few things out of my speeches, so they don’t go on forever, but this woman criticized me for not telling her every single detail.
The obnoxious woman who wanted the speech so badly that she was asking for 5 minutes straight had a cell phone that sounded like a fire alarm. A family with a cute baby at the front door had another little girl who became my shadow.
First Week June 10, 2010, 3:40 am Filed under: Environmental Studies, Gillette Castle, Sherlock Holmes | Tags: Buses, Environmental Studies, General, Gillette Castle, Queer Theory, Sherlock Holmes, Storm I will be continuing to review my Gillette Castle information and add more than well.
I have decided that for uneventful days like this, I will acquire the Sherlock Holmes soundtrack from the new movie and put it in the third floor stereo. We had a visit from Nichole, the curator, who provided the majority of the Gillette material that I got my hand on and from which I produced notes last year.
There were lightening flashes, flickering lights and crashing thunder. One clap of thunder was so loud, it sent Allie shrieking off the bench.
Although, I must say that I was glad I was not sitting on my usual perch above the entrance hall, or that would have been a recipe for disaster. After the 14-hour drive back from Michigan I had to work really hard to not turn into zombie tour guide.
Main speeches were easy, especially since I only had to give three talks out of six. It was a pleasure to meet a couple with a young daughter who were extremely interested in the history of the home and in Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes play.
I am now curious to find and read more of Gillette’s plays. I figured that this blog would also serve to track my research progress, however I have been slow to start.
One thing that I have been doing, however, is compiling notes from various sources that Katherine and I found last summer. I am a horribly disorganized person, but this forces me to at least try to maintain some order.
For example, the number of acres of land when Gillette bought the property could have been 106, 108, 114, 115, or 122. Some more research that interests me includes information about the park itself and its natural history.
I have decided to annotate Gillette’s play as my first source for my Sherlock Holmes thesis. One topic that may work is looking at how much the author’s intention actually matters in character development.
Looking at the publication about William Gillette as Sherlock Holmes (literally) suggests that the character also managed to take over a playwright/actor, not just the other way around. It would be good to be able to involve gender/queer studies theory at least to a certain extent since I’ve used so much of it in my major at Bryan Mar.
This makes me hate the real world of environmental economics even more than the class. The firm is not internalizing the cost of damage to other people and the environment.
My dad says that we shouldn’t be raising money to alleviate effects from the oil spill, because it is not a natural disaster. In a perfect world, yes, this is how it would work, but in a competitive market, unfortunately we get hurt and do need to do something, or we will have no natural environment left.
Medicine makes me drowsy, so dealing with the public in a fog while trying to recall information that resided in the deep recesses of my brain was not an easy feat. My speech from last year has been burned onto my brain, and I was back on autopilot.
One of the most exciting moments of the weekend happened when the told the Rivers about my English thesis on Sherlock Holmes. It turns out that the Rivers are editing Henry Lecher’s book.
In the meantime I will have to make do with Doris Cook’s book. As disjointed, random, and over detailed as it most likely is, I would like to see a full biography.
The frog pond outside was working again for the first day, but unfortunately it managed to croak after about twenty minutes. Also, the fencing frogs, my favorite among Gillette’s collectibles are now locked away in a cabinet in the butler’s pantry rather than sitting proudly in their old spot on the cat table in the middle of the great hall :(.
Osaka’s pistol is now displayed in the case along with pictures and his bible. Apparently our black, scaly friend from last season has been hanging around again.
Sherlock Holmes was a fictional character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle… Did Gillette live in London? No, he was born in Hartford, CT… Sherlock Holmes lived in London.
“William Gillette played the character, Shakespeare, on the stage.” Apparently my twitch that developed from hearing the light switches is still there.
