…that’s not bartitsu. Thanks to Kevin I. for showing this link to some delightfully jujutsu-looking photos of a Mr. Latson’s form of self defense. The below is a favorite.
Check out this fun series of gifs from an unarmed fight rehearsal of The World’s End. My favorite is below. It’s an advantage, sometimes, to be a hobbit. (Thanks, Elementary Sherlock!)
It’s Bolder Acts time again! If you’re local, don’t miss this death-defying theatrical feat!

From: Elementary, ep. 2.9
Event: A woman makes her suicide look like a murder by shooting herself on a bridge, attaching the gun to a string attached to a dumbbell, which then falls over the bridge railing and disappears into the water below. Sherlock Holmes discovers the deception by examining the railing, then dragging the water immediately below.
Reference: A wronged wife does this very thing to herself in “The Problem of Thor Bridge,” though unlike the Elementary ep, she is trying to frame the “other woman” whereas in Elementary, she’s trying to frame the man.
In Intro to Theatre classes at Metro State, the students are required to write, produce, and perform a one-act play for their final exam. This semester, in compliance with the General Ed technology requirement, I assigned each group to do a video promo for their play: this could either be in the form of a trailer, or a talk-show-style interview with the creators, or etc. Below please enjoy the trailer for one of these projects. Looks mysteriously intense, no? ~Jenn
From: Elementary, ep. 7, 8
Place name: Diogenes
Reference: In these episodes, we hear about the restaurant Mycroft is opening in New York. It’s called Diogenes, and he says “it’s my creation, and I’m proud of it.” This name references the club which Doyle’s Mycroft also created. Though in Elementary, speaking is allowed in the restaurant.
