pls explain benedict cumberbatch in a five paragraph essay with cited sources

gingerbbatch:

if you thought i wasn’t actually going to do this

Ralph Waldo Emerson Martin Freeman once said, “I was not going to pass up an opportunity to even nearly punch Benedict in the face.[1] As fans of the long-faced, glasz-eyed actor, many of us can understand Freeman’s passive aggression. Research has shown that the “Benedict Cumberbatch” tag on Tumblr is often also tagged with the phrase #fuck you[2] - we’ve found that fans are expressing aggression because they can’t actually reach out and touch the cheekbones. In this essay, I will outline the basics of the Cumberbatch, The Real.[3]

Born July 19, 1976, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch was born to parents Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton, leaving us to wonder, where the fuck did they get Cumberbatch? And more importantly, why? One of God’s greater mysteries, tbqh. Raised in London, he attended the Harrow School for Boys, and later the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).[4] He is best known for portraying Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock, though he’s been in ROUGHLY 323497 other projects in 2014 alone. But we’ll get to that later. 

Our boy started acting when he was about thirteen, in which he played a woman. Incredible. (That’s what happens at all boys schools, lemme tell ya.) And this photo leads me to believe he may have played Nick Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Yikes. His career began mostly with TV-Movies and shorts, grew in the mid 2000s with some period pieces and other good stuff, then shot off in 2011 with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, a film that has such a fucking ridiculous cast and plot. I watched it while surfing tumblr and could literally tell you nothing about it except drama, spies, blonde!batch, crying!batch, and soldiers??? Clearly I need to see this one again. 

THEN 2013 HAPPENED AND WOWZA BOY’S GOT FAME lemme break this down for you: He starts the year off voicing Alan Rickman on the Simpson’s. Classic film. Jump to May (I believe?? If I remember) and we have Star Trek Into Darkness. Cinemas worldwide are enchanted by “the one with the cheekbones!!” or “the one that sounded like Snape?!” or “the one that looks like a snake!!?” But for me, it was the Single Perfect Tear Monologue that tipped me over the edge to a full-fledged Cumbercookie. But I digress. Fall brings us 12 Years a Slave, a fucking incredible movie that needs to win every award it’s nominated for. Ben pulls a southern accent and some period attire, swoon. And The Fifth Estate which was a really fucking good movie and I’m sad it BOMBED but eh, life. Next up: The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug! He finally gets to live out his dream of becoming a dragon, look at him go. Did you know he did motion capture or something idk he doesn’t like talking about it. THEN he does this little 20 minute indie thing Little Favour, which is actually just MUSCLES and BLOOD and FIST FIGHTS and AROUSING. We finish off the year with the third season of Sherlock, tipping us over to 2014, and then August: Osage County opens soon (or is open, idk where ya’ll live). He won BAFTA’s British Artist of the Year award, graced the cover of Time, explaining:

I completely f***ing forget it was a cover, I just thought it was going to be a story inside. And I was honored by being one of the very few actors who get a profile inside of the magazine. When it came out literally thought it was a mock up that a fan had done: I thought, ‘That’s not my hand!’ So when I found out it was a reality I was genuinely floored.[5]

I could go on forever about all the amazing things he’s done in 2013 but it’s 11:09 and I actually do have homework to do so we’re gonna move on OKAY COOL.

I’d like to know who it was, one day, sitting at their computer blogging about Sherlock hiatus and the struggles that we live with, who had a lightbulb moment and said, “Oh, my god. I know. I know who I am. I must be honest with myself, and tell the world. I’ve found my label, and I can’t wait to spread the word. I am………a Cumberbitch.” LITERALLY WHO because they need to be pelted with jelly beans or something maybe mini marshmallows I don’t know but the fandom doesn’t like it, Benny C doesn’t like it, and those poor marshmallows that are being sacrificed don’t like it. Anyway, the point is, Benedict’s got QUITE the troop of followers. Cumbercookies, The Cumbercollective (as he’s attempted), Sherlockians, whatever you wanna call yourself, he’s found his groupies. Obviously we write/read fic, draw/look at fanart, vote him up to Empire’s Sexiest Actor Alive,[6] go to Setlock, and much much more. And though he doesn’t love the term some girl came up with, he loves us! Which is wonderful. Because I love us too. We’re great at showing support (signs, kind messages, buying tickets to his stuff), and we’re great at showing him/his work to other people (“Okay, I know he kind of looks like an alien, but it WORKS, right??!” “It does kinda work, wow…how does he do that?”) - an actual conversation I’ve had. Many a time. 

IN CONCLUSION (in ninth grade my English professor wouldn’t give us an ‘A’ unless we literally wrote “in conclusion,” crazy bitch) Benedict Timothy Carlton “On a Monday morning I can’t even say it once”[7] Cumberbatch is an incredible man, actor, and general humanoid. He’s been raised well, has led a strong and steady career that’s only going up, attracts throngs of fans (…girls), and is amazingly humble. PLUS he can #work any hair color[8] and owns the #chinfinite.[9] Benedict, Benny, Ben C, BC…whatever we call you ironically, man, do we love you.

Let us take a moment to observe the awesomeness of octopus.

My buddy read an article about octopus intelligence. It was feeding time, and the handler dumped some shrimp into an octopus’ tank. Then he went into another room and sat at his desk.

A while later, a shrimp was tossed onto his desk.

The octopus, upon finding one bad shrimp in the lot, had grabbed it, escaped its tank, crossed the hall, and threw the expired shrimp at its caretaker. Not only does this showcase their problem-solving capabilities, but also that it could have escaped at any time. It just broke out this time to chuck an off shrimp in indignation at its handler. That’s not just intelligence, that’s a human-like reaction. Kinda make you wonder exactly how smart these guys can be…

and yet they let us keep them in tanks. Wow.
I love octopi

Because nothing is better than Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender dancing together at the #GoldenGlobes. 

Ayyyy werk. 

So someone on Twitter was there, saw these two dancing and cleared up the thing about what song they were dancing to;
'@jfuentes: @Coops_tv I can actually answer this one… Was “Mo Money Mo Problems” by The Notorious B.I.G. ft. Mase & Diddy.’
Incredible.

we have literally created our own dialogue? language? here on tumblr and i think that is the most amazing thing ever please disregard my shitty editing skills

no listen this is actually really amazing because this is a real thing. i think this counts as a pidgin language. a pidgin language is basically a changed, simplified version of a language. you can change the spellings of words, pronunciation, grammar rules, or even make up new words. i think. i’d have to research it a bit more to be sure but i’m 90% sure this is right. if its not a pidgin language, then its a lingua franca but thats more used for trade and stuff like that. but still a new language. so yes, we’ve created our own language. we’ve changed the whole sentence structure. we can trail off sentences, say things like “i just cant”, and use words like ship, OTP, fic, fandom, feels, and ship names and everyone will understand what you’re saying. the part that i love most is how people go “OMGH IM CRIIY NIG SOIOO HARD” and understand each other. for example “IM LIUA GHMNIG”. that one was incredibly easy, but if you knew that said “I’m laughing”, congratulations. You speak a pidgin language. we can even say stuff like “Does anyone know of a Johnlock fic, at least 20k words, not a WIP, with no OCs, and is Post-Reichenbach? Or just a Destiel PWP would be great.” To someone not on tumblr, that wouldn’t make any sense. but you understood, didn’t you? One characteristic of a pidgin language is that you have to learn it like a second language. Another characteristic is that it is frequently changing. tumblr goes through many trends with how we talk. if i remember correctly, when i first made an account about two years ago, talking like this wasn’t quite as common. also, that thing of suddenly capitalizing your sentence is fairly recent. you know, when people go “the new epISODE IS TOMORROW”. Like one of the people up there said, all of this is awesome because how else do you easily show emotion and tone over the internet? we’ve even made a whole sense of humour that most people here share in. There’s so much more that I could talk about with this, but i’m tired and i may be entirely wrong about everything. but yes. people on the fandom side of tumblr who speak like this are speaking a new language

As an anthropologist-in-training…I think I can safely say that this is legit. And awesome.

Yep. It’s a pidgin, born of texting and extreme youth. Get used to it.
