Hello, I'm an English female grown-up and an enthusiastic purveyor of various forms of internet whimsy. This is a place to show you stuff I've drawn or written or otherwise cobbled together, as well as stuff I simply like the look of. You can also find me on Livejournal and Twitter.
Benedict Cumberbatch - VH1’s Big Morning Buzz interview, 02/05/2012
The topic of otters comes up at around the 5:30 mark!
I confess, I find it HILARIOUS that he questions the fact that the first two Otterbatch pics don’t quite match up in terms of hand positioning. I remember dithering a bit over the flat hands/curving hands distinction, but by that point, I’d spent much longer staring at pictures of otters than any sane person ever should, and told myself “Oh, that’ll do, nobody will notice the difference.” Of course, at that point I had no idea that thousands and thousands of people were going to be looking at it, including Mr C himself. Whoops.
So I’m sorry, Benedict. If it’s any consolation, it seems we’re both pedants. You’re just more skilled at it than I am!
