Monsieur Weiss,
It is with great regard that I hold your investigative prowess. Like others have pointed out you will find it a waste of your precious time to try and trace the IP address of this computer, I have in fact used a proxy to cover my tracks. You have stumbled across the gold ring I dropped at the crime scene and I will return for it. You are correct that "Rache" is a ruse meant to lead you astray. I am not the butler, nor am I the taxi driver easily handcuffed while assisting you in closing your luggage. A game you have requested and although your insinuations nearly pinpoint one person, I in fact am left to my devices unscathed. Herr Rob_in_mo is my unbeknownst "Rache", but alas his acorn pipe was not of my doing but instead the inspiration of my miscreant activities. Bombings yes, until your most recent apocalyptic delivery, which by all accounts should have taken you back to month one of the BoB bomber missions, again "Rache" but my candle burned out more rapidly than I had planned. A small case with two pills left inside, but you cannot take (smoke) them yourself so they are left to the senile dog on it's last leg (porch).
Monsieur Weiss as we continue this proverbial tryst I beg you keep in mind my damage can be ten-fold what it has been. This dance between you and I has just begun, and when this dance concludes you will be as clueless to my identity as you are at this juncture. For now I slink back in to the Shadows and although Inspector Holmes and Doctor Watson may find it offensive I prefer this day forth to be referred to as "The Shadow". No investigator, even of Holmes prowess will uncover my identity. No criminal (active BoB member) shall go unscathed. The Shadow Knows.
Adieu
The Shadow

All of these mysterious Shadow posts got me to wondering if there were any old movies available online. I found this one on Hulu. It's supposed to be for Hulu Plus members, but it seems to be playing just fine...

Sorry to infringe on your thread Mr. Shadow. Just trying to help spread your fame. Laughing

Brilliant! I didn't look at it this way earlier, Monbla. Twisted Evil

Kyle and his other personality can go at it all day. Hope he doesn't turn out like Norman Bates... Shocked

Dear Shadow:

Let's keep this clean, Shadow. I don't want anyone else hurt, see? The boys here, they're off on Squadron missions all the time, they can't handle the likes of you pesterin' them and causing them undue grief every time they go out to the mailbox. They want justice, dammit!

You think you have your game all figured out, eh? We'll see about that. I have friends too, ya know...good ones, too.

Every thing you touch is a clue, just remember that, Shadow.

Cool

Sorry to interrupt, but can someone please fill me in on this Rache, ring, butler, and pill stuff please? I just googled and now I need to buy "The Shadow" it had Alec Bladwin!!! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111143/
Storyline
Based on the 1930's pulp fiction and radio drama series, the film pits the hero against his arch enemy, Shiwan Khan, who plans to take over the world by holding a city ransom using an atom bomb. Using his powers of invisibility and "The power to cloud men's minds", the Shadow comes blazing to the city's rescue with explosive results.

Sounds awesome, but I still don't get the Rache stuff?

More specifically it is the German for revenge. It shows up in Holmes (most recently rather nicely in "A Study In Pink" the first episode of BBC's Sherlock season 1)


.... this is most intriguing Cool

No prob. It's just recently there seems to be a generation of folks who know of Holmes ONLY from the tube ! Sadly they miss out on a lot of the intricacies of plot that Doyle wrote Razz

I likewise have read them all. Though I do like the Sir. Rathbone's portrayal. Have even listened to all of his radio play performances (and read the un-produced scripts they collected into a book). That is why I enjoyed the play on "A Study In Scarlet" by way of "A Study In Pink". I am sure it is good if you have not read the books - but all the better for having enjoyed them. Cool As you say Monbla - those who have not read do sadly miss out on a lot.

i.keenum, the BBC series does a very nice job of translating the Holmes mythos into modern London. Worth checking out.

I have the books here, just have not taken the time to read them yet. I will get on it Monbla, I'd hate to be the disappointment of generation for you. I've just been too busy with the Kardashians.


Kidding about that last part of course, watching that crap or Jersey Morons would make me gouge my eyes out.

For my money the best Holmes was Jeremy Brett...and the series of Doyle stories he starred in is still aired on BBCA occasionally. I used to like Rathbone...and still do...but he HATED playing Holmes (though it did keep him out of WWII London during the Blitz, so there's that). Anyway, I also have great affection for the bumbling Watson played by Nigel Bruce (as though Holmes needed an idiot foil to show off his brilliance)...but I think that David Burke played a better Watson for Brett...which was done during the mid-80's. Brett had Holmes DOWN...his imagined expressions, every nuance was near perfect, and I think the screenplays were just as accurate to the originals...not being a Holmes scholar.


Oh! And by the way...

There he goes again...(the celebrated) Mr. K...the self-appointed, unnecessary and unwanted spokesperson of any and all.

Mr. K...as the OFFICIAL spokesman of the Squadron, I assure you...the boys can HANDLE damn near ANYTHING...especially goin' out to the mailbox...at which they have extensive training which has been honed to perfection by practice in the field of fire!!!

This is the second time the honor of the Squadron has been besmirched, Sir. Thus far I have been patient, but further slights will surely result in dire consequences! I don't believe I would have a problem securing one or more gentlemen to act as my second if need be. You may, Sir, consider this a warning. Mad

Kyle has. This Shadow has him all flustered and at his wits end. The ramblings of lunacy have started from him.

I've slowly been building a Holmes dvd collection. I have the Brett Series, Rathbone series, and even the new BBC series, except I still need season 2 of that. I also have quite a few of the movies from over the years. I'm with you though, out of all of them, Jeremy Brett is my absolute favorite Holmes. That was such a good show.
