Mark Gatiss, co-creator and co-producer of Sherlock: I first came across [the Mind Palace concept] in Hannibal, the Thomas Harris book, and the idea of it is so thrilling. But in a way it’s an extrapolation from Doyle from Sherlock’s quote about a man’s mind being like a lumber room. It doesn’t have elastic walls. There comes a point where for everything you put in, you have to delete something. And that became in the first series comparing it to a hard drive, and really, that’s what it is.
In important news today: Gillian Anderson has come out as bisexual and appeared in Out magazine with this photo.
From her blog:I chose during that interview to discuss the fact that, earlier in my life, I had been in relationship with a woman. It was the first time I revealed this fact in a public forum, and I chose to do so for two reasons. One was that a woman whom I was in relationship with had died a few months beforehand and I felt, in the context of our conversation, it was safe and appropriate to bring it up. Many years beforehand, and well beyond our time together, this woman had called me out of the blue at the height of my television fame to say that she had been offered $60,000 by a tabloid to provide a picture of us together. At the time, for various reasons, not including shame, I did not want that information in the public domain and despite the fact that she was struggling to pay her rent, I asked her not to sell our story. She took what at the time I considered to be the high road. To this day I regret asking her to do that. That 60 grand would have had a greater positive effect on her life than a negative effect on mine. By discussing our relationship in Out, I felt like I was honoring her memory in some way simply by admitting its existence.
“At one point when I was very young, when I was first starting out, I thought, ‘Well, one day I’ll be able to put all the music away and become a real comedian.’ But then I realized there are amazing musical comedians out there, that musical comedy is probably something I’ll always want to pursue.” -Bo Burnham [•] [•]
