wes thu hal, Pete Seeger

Peter Seeger has long been one of my favorite musicians for the nice blend of folk, Southern Gospel, blues, and the like. A wonderful musician whose songs were deeply human and always uplifting to listen to.

He had apparently sailed west, which is my cue to share a song of his. Who am I to fight tradition?

One thing I've really come to love about the Sherlock fandom is that episode bits that don't seem to make sense don't typically drive the fans away - they provide a challenge to write that moment better. Or at least to work out precisely why, through meta-analysis, the scene didn't work or how it could have been made more plausible. I'm currently pottering away at a fanfic story set amongst the events of "His Last Vow" which the muses apparently decided needed to fix the beating heart of "The Empty Hearse."

This is not a bad thing. It's actually a very good thing, IMO, and not just because it gies a creative outlet.

And for the record, this is in no way a comment on the show about to hit US airwaves tonight - if anything, that show requires the least fixing of series three, and is quite enjoyable. If by enjoyable we mean tears your heart out by the aorta, but, you know... Team Moffat. Nor does it mean Sherlock isn't better than at *least* 95% of the programming out there IMO. It just means that, as a person driven to create and engage constructively rather than get burned out from frustration and find something new, Sherlockians are my kind of people.
