I had only just met Catta, who is a THEATRE STAGEHAND!!! from Stockholm and very nice. :) A few days later she had an extremely epic Benedict encounter! (Sort of thanks to me, she claims... :B ) "He was ridiculously nice!" Everyone who knew her died of envy, including the celebs she works with.

This Matthew guy was funny and highfived the waiting fans. My motor skills being what they are, I missed his hand on the first try <:D

Click here to see all the photos from the trip. :)

How this started:

Early 2016: I have the LOTRathon I've been thinking about for months; I have them every couple of years. Extended edition, of course. :) Then I decide to watch the huge-ass Appendices for the first time. Everything insanely insane. :O
And I look at Ian McKellen and think "Aww, I have seen a fair few LOTR stars, but not him, and he's pretty fab. If he ever does a play in London I should go…"
And I look at David Wenham and think "Ah, imagine if he would grace our con with his presence. Yeah, fat chance. Can't catch them all. But now, let's read the journal entry about my Brad encounter and reminisce. I'd better check the con site tomorrow, btw. I've been sloppy about that lately. Never know what unmissable names might turn up. What if Brad… I'm gonna scribble CON here on my wrist."
The next morning, March 14: On my way to the bus, I think "Ye olde mid-00's, that was a pretty fun, golden age – when LOTR boys would rain down on our con." At school, wifi kicks in and I look at my phone.
There's an email from WhatsOnStage, announcing that Ian McKellen will be doing a fucking London play. :O (With Patrick Stewart, whose work I don't know, but I've seen him in many memes on Facebook, so… that's a bit fun.)
Then my wrist reminds me to check the con site. I see the next con will be in my real hometown (450 km away) on April 2-3.
AND DAVID WENHAM IS ON THE LIST!
Rat: "I APPROVE OF THE THINGS."
Rat: *jumps a bit, screaming internally*


I got to meet Ian THREE TIMES! :D Couldn't think of much to say to him / didn't dare say much to him. %D Mainly "Hi", "Thank you so much", "I'm seeing the show tomorrow, hehe, so..." ("Oh, that's good", he said), and "You were brilliant."

Twice he said "How are you?", I got three siggies (two will become gifts, I suppose), two handshakes (one of them lasted OVER 9000 SECONDS while he listened to a question from someone else), and at the last two encounters I remembered to look into his eyes! ^_^ Which I forget at 99.999% of celeb encounters.

(Normally eye contact can fuck off, but with idols it's a special thing, see. :D )

I thought about thanking him for his nice tribute to Alan Rickman :'( but, uh, FORMING SENTENCES IS HARRRRRRRRD. o_O

PS. In fact, all four actors came out and signed after all three shows that played during my London stay. :)

20150811&14 Me, miss G, Benedict Cumberbatch, his siggy, & siggy of Ciarán Hinds :D | The Barbican Centre, London, England

I scored. :B

Fan report:

- February 9, 2015: I saw "The imitation game" and declared it Movie of the Year. :D My year-end review said:
"It has become very rare for me to fave a (non-documentary) film after only one viewing (or two… or 9000…), but I faved this before it was even over. It has… almost everything! :D (Including, but not limited to, Britishness, lolz, Aspie traits, feminism, nerd pride, gay pride, computers, that guy with the name that all the kids are going on about these days, god-stompin’, suicide, adorkability, and the best Oscar speech of 2015. ^_^ ) I went to see the movie because of my mild interest in computer history. (As I’ve said before, though I suck at computers I tend to like stories about them.) Within days, I became a Cumbercookie LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. o_O Then I dragged my mum along to my second viewing of 'The imitation game', and she loved it too… and has rewatched it. Twice. She virtually never rewatches any movie even once. Anyway… It turned out I had already seen about five of Benedict’s movies (the first one being 'Creation' in 2010!), but… I… kind of… sort of… otterly… failed to… remember him in them. *ERROR ERROR MEEEEEP BZZZZZZZZ BLAMMO* I was the last person in the world to get on that train. -_- Four or five 'Sherlock' marathons: Check."

- March 4: An idea struck – I should go to London to see him in "Hamlet". Sure, he wasn't my hugest obsession ever, but he was in the holy movie "The imitation game", dammit! :D Plus I might become an even bigger fan later, and regret not going… The next day or so, I realized the "Hamlet" tix had been released a bazillion months ago, and had of course sold out immediately. I still wanted to go to London, hang out by the stage door, and hope for a real-life glimpse of him. Maybe… even… a… selfie… if he wanted to…

- August 7: I found me a "Hamlet" return ticket... hours before I left for London. :D I actually only had to try for a few hours in total…

- August 10: I saw Benedict IRL for the first time, after waiting by the stage door with a few million other people. :D He wrote a shit ton of siggies… in spite of signs on the wall saying that he wouldn’t sign stuff! I had a good spot on the barricade, but in the chaos I missed my chance to get a selfie. Young week was young, however…

- August 11: Selfie. :D
Benedict (paraphrased): "Oh, did you want one?"
Me (one hopes): "YES PLEASE, KINDEST SIR! :D "
Me (quite possibly): [CHEWBACCANOISES]
Me brain: *brainsplodes*
Me: *sucks at selfies* (since before brainsplode, you understand)
I had met miss G while we were queueing for various things. It looks exactly as if I'm PHOTOBOMBING her and Benedict, but I'm pretty sure you can't photobomb your own picture. <:D (How lucky, since Benedict founded the International Society Against Photobombing. #waitwat)

- August 12: "Hamlet". :D I understood the dialogue perfectly!
NAY, I JEST
BUT I WISHED IT WOULD NEVER END
FOR HE WAS GLORIOUS

- August 13: I was slingin’ the DVD cover of "The imitation game", hoping to get it signed.
Benedict: "Only Hamlet stuff, sorry!"
This was unsurprising, really… I should just have tried with my ticket right away, as I had seen similar policies at certain other ultra-popular stage doors! (I believe the purpose is to deter siggy hunters from E-bay, which is of course a pretty good idea.) But hey… HE TALKED TO ME! Again. <:D

- August 14: Siggy on my ticket. :D I was just using my "Hamlet" programme to support the flimsy little ticket (which had been signed by Ciarán Hinds the previous day - mainly because he was the only other cast member whose name I had recognized), but in the stagedoor chaos, Benedict started signing the programme. However (being a PICKY FUCK), I'd rather have the ticket signed... for reasons...! I’M SORREH, BENEDICT! :B <3 Luckily, there was time to react!
The lone B later found a good home with miss C, who couldn't be there. :'(

- August 15: I and a bunch of people waited by the stage door again, in spite of… signs on the wall saying that he wouldn’t come out today. This time the signs turned out to be true, but… it had been worth a try. :B (I would have gone for a handshake that day!) Plus I met a very nice Stockholm lady who inspired me to want to visit the Galápagos Islands some time. :D (So, ahem… stay tuned for… a few years.) And… she happened to have a SUPER-EPIC Benedict encounter two days later. :O (Thanks to advice from me, she claims… :B ) "He was ridiculously nice!" All who knew her died of envy. xD

Some other stuff happened in London too… Such as:
- Interactions with other actors from "Hamlet" :)
- Another play, "Everyman", starring Chiwetel Eijofor
- My first visit to the amazeballz Hunterian Museum :O
- A ton of nice food
- A bit of "Sherlock"-touristing :B
- And… I was going to see Imelda Staunton and Lara Pulver in a play called "Gypsy" on the 14th, but I actually skipped that for an extra chance to get Benedict’s siggy. And of course that worked out well…! :B

Hopefully I will get around to uploading a couple of the above things WITHIN ANOTHER 8 MONTHS! :D

Get A Sneak Peek Inside Banksy’s Twisted Disney-Themed ‘Bemusement Park’ Dismaland HERE!

If you squint hard enough, Banksy's latest popup exhibit known as Dismaland has an eerie resemblance to the happiest place on earth!

But don't let that first impression fool you, because this "anti-theme park" isn't exactly family friendly!

[ Related: Banksy Secretly Sells His Art For Low Prices In NYC! ]

The famed British artist has always gained attention for his shocking and thought-provoking street art, and his latest installment is a twisted Disney-themed "bemusement park" that would probably make Mickey Mouse sick!

Attendees might not get the thrill rides or roller coasters they'd find at other theme parks, but they WILL get a chance to see TONS art from various artists who were hand-picked by Bansky!

Unfortunately, this dystopian wonderland is located all the way across the pond in Weston-super-Mare, England! But if you can't make the trip to the U.K., you still get a peek inside by watching this video (below)!

Trust us, you are NOT going to want to miss what's inside Cinderella's castle!!

Banksy's Dismaland theme park opens today. Krishnan Guru Murthy went to have an early nose around the bizarre and dystopian "bemusement park".
