The Name is Moriarty, Jim Moriarty.


     Jim Moriarty, played by Irish actor Andrew Scott in the new Sherlock Holmes series with Benedict Cumberbatch.  

     This is not your traditional picture of Professor Moriarty but of a man in a three piece suit who is a computer genius and a bit spoiled.

     

 

 

     Here he is, Jim Moriarty, master of all he surveys, can do anything, have anything, but he still has to defeat his Arch Nemesis, Sherlock Holmes.  Jim look pugnacious.  Take away the suit and he wouldn’t just be smart, but would also be good with his hands and handle himself in Welch’s Gym or a Southie bar on Saturday night.  Not just would he win the barroom brawl, but your computer would never be the same in a couple of days.  

     Jim Moriarty, crying out to the world, “Oh, the boredom, the ennui.  I must find a final problem to solve.  Oh yes I have it.  It’s Sherlock Holmes.

     What would Professor Moriarty do today for entertainment?  Let’s see, cause the world financial crisis, play with the 2012 U.S. Presidential election, mess with currency trading of the Euro.  He certainly would have caused the phone hacking scandal.  All to draw Sherlock out.

 

      Ah Jimbo, we hardly knew ye.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
