How to Achieve the Fire Text Effect in Gimp

Found this really cool video that explains how to make the fire text effect in GIMP.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sesame Street

I just found this on YouTube. It’s cute and funny, but something about it feels a bit off. Maybe it’s because Sesame Street is targeted to young children while Sherlock is aimed toward adults? (Then again, Sesame Street also did a Hunger Games: Catching Fire parody, so maybe this isn’t that surprising.)

At any rate, I enjoyed it. Cumberbatch felt like the epitome of the British gentleman here, considering how patient he was with “Murray-arty.”

Toonami Equality Speech

I used to watch Toonami all the time as a kid (pretty certain that’s how I got into anime, actually), so I think this video is pretty awesome. Definitely worth watching.

It gets extra awesome points for featuring clips from One Piece and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, two of my favorite animes of all time.

Sherlock: Series 3 Launch Trailer

Another new trailer for the next series of Sherlock. Much more substantial than the last one, complete with the series premiere’s date (New Year’s Day). Yay!

My only concern is that I doubt I’ll be able to see the series premiere unless someone puts it online or its put on Netflix. So I will probably have to avoid spoilers online when it premieres, at least until I can see it myself.

Who else is excited for Series 3?
