Bücher, Filme, Technik und Benedict Cumberbatch – auf Deutsch and in English

Not weird, not stupid, but happy

Two people fall in love  and decide to marry. Isn’t that a most lovely thing to announce in an old fashioned way by an ad in a newspaper? Those who don’t feel happy for the couple must lack feelings at all.

Benedict Cumberbatch did exactly that – rumours know that he previously talked to his soon to be mother in law – and fits all the speculations fans have about a man who isn’t only one of the best actors of his generation. Benedict is as humble and polite, funny and intelligent as a perfect human being could be. At least this is what fans get to know from interviews or even from meeting him in real life. Is  it really such a surprise that he inspires his fans in so many ways and is adored for being the man he is?

No, it isn’t. And no, you don’t have to understand it. But why don’t you just accept that the Cumbercollective loves and adores Benedict Cumberbatch? That his fans are not weird, nor stupid? But people who are very friendly, kind and connected all over the world? And no: we are not Cumberbitches for heaven’s sake. It’s more than two years ago. Of course I know that this word is used to get more clicks on a webpage. But this doesn’t mean that it is okay to use it. It only proves the fact that there are journalists out there who are so arrogant in their struggle to stay above all things, trying not to get emotionally engaged, that they find fans‘ reaction nothing more than ridiculous.

If you read my blog on a regular basis (Hi, reader!) or are following me on Twitter (Hi follower!), you know that I am a journalist myself. I do believe that it is important to get facts right, to stay neutral, to get all the information you can get on the topic you’re writing about, even when you have to face a deadline. But I will never understand why some journalists think that they are something special, that they want to teach their readers right from wrong. And why they are laughing at fans.

Maybe it’s because I’m only working at a local newspaper, in a town where people recognise me in the supermarket and will tell me straight in the face what they hate about my last article. Or what they liked.

Maybe it’s because I’m part of the Cumbercollective. And I am proud of it.

  3. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

      Thank you for your kind words about my blog. Glad you like it.

      About writing. Well, I always have found it easy to write. But it’s not always easy to get my thoughts into words, especially when I’m writing in English. There are experts out there who strongly advise you to sketch a list of things you want to write. This may help for some, it honestly never worked for me.

      I’m thinking about the topic I want to get my opinion out first, this may be a book which I fell in love while reading it. And then it’s the beginning most of the time that isn’t easy – as you wrote. So spending 15 minutes to figure out how to begin isn’t a waste of time I think. This doesn’t mean you have to spend it in front of your computer. Doing something completely different can actually help clearing your mind and even help to form sentence. And getting your thoughts and sentences sorted in a way others may follow your thoughts.

      And then, just write. Concentrate on the things you want to write and let them out of your mind 🙂

  4. I have not found many blogs that offer such consistently readable and interesting content as is on offer on this one, you deserve the tiny amount of time it will take to express my appreciation at your hard work. Many thanks.
