The Game is On! The Renewed Love of Sherlock Holmes

sherlocksI am a big Sherlock Holmes fan, even though I have not read all of the novels and short stories yet. The renewed popularity of Sherlock Holmes was sparked by the 2009 movie Sherlock Holmes, starring the charismatic Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Since the movie came out, there has been a second movie (a third is in talks) and two TV series, Elementary (US) and Sherlock (UK). I’ve seen them all and I’m now curious to watch some of the older shows from the 80’s just to see what they were like.

I love the Guy Ritchie movies and both TV series because they each have their own take on the stories and characters from the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories. The Sherlock movies are both set in the 1880’s like the books, the British TV series Sherlock is a mix of 1800’s and 2000’s fashion styles and sets, and the US series Elementary is set in the 2000’s, though there are many character traits, fashion designs and set pieces that go back to the 1800’s.

I would love to read the whole collection to see which adaptation has elements closest to the original. Of course, I believe Elementary is the farthest from it, especially since there are some strong female characters playing male roles, I think there might be a few things placed as an homage to the original. Personally, I like this modern twist to the story, but there are many people who are appalled by the fact that Dr. Watson in the show is played by a woman.

I’d like to hear your opinions about the movies or shows!  Comment below to let me know what you think.

Do you like the modern styles or prefer to keep to the original stories?

One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 12 – Not Another Tokyo Fashion Guide

I feel so excited!

For the past several months I’ve been quite anxious about my book. While I initially had a concept of a Fashion Guide from Tokyo, it never quite rang out so perfectly as I thought it would, but last night I realized the path this book should take…… not as a “Tokyo Fashion Guide”….. but along the lines of “Not Another Tokyo Fashion Guide!”.

I have many details swimming in my head, so details for the moment will be minimal until I sort them all out, but essentially, this will not be a typical guide just showing you the trends and fashion from the already famous areas of the city -this book will become more personal and opinionated than that *^_~*

This has certainly put me in great spirits and I can’t wait to get organized!
