Zachary Quinto’s words on Benedict Cumberbatch at the Star Trek into Darkness London Premiere.
Aka things that make Benedict cry.“Well it’s so exciting to be here on his home turf. How about that Benedict Cumberbatch hey? Right?
[cheers and Benedict stops signing to turn and look at Zachary and gives him a wave]You only need to say his name in England and people lose their miiiinds. So it’s thrilling, you know, because in addition to being so enormously talented, Ben is such an incredible guy and his feet are always on the ground; he’s got a great sense of humour. He’s incredibly generous and just mind blowingly talented. Spectacular. So I’m so happy for him and for all the success that’s coming his way. He deserves every bit of it.”And also, we love you too Zachary.

Benedict: “When I heard them saying nice things on the red carpet… that was the thing that really struck [me] to my core, and it got to a point - it was like a tipping point, I’d say - where I was signing something and I heard Zachary [Quinto] saying something very complimentary about me and I started to cry.”
Don’t cry my love.
In late December of 2003, security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London, captured a startling image. Security guards were unsettled to repeatedly find a fire door open when no one was apparently around. Upon checking the security tape, they were shocked by a ghostly figure, closely resembling King Henry VIII (who died in the 1500s).
Vikki Wood, a spokesperson for the Palace, said “We’re baffled too—it’s not a joke, we haven’t manufactured it. We genuinely do not know who it is or what it is.” They aren’t a ppc company, or even a company looking to gain from this oddity; they are just as baffled like most people who look at this footage.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” Faukes said.
Large quantities of Sherlock, Parks & Recreation, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Martin Freeman, Adam Scott, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, podcast randomness, and much more will be found here. The level of appreciation is up to you.
