Happy Shakespeare Day 2018!

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 13:00:41 +0000

I do so love Shakespeare Day. I try to get a little Shakespeare into all my days.  I can’t crank out the posts like I used to (once upon a time averaging more than two per day), both because life’s gotten in the way more often than not but also because it feels like we’ve … Continue reading Happy Shakespeare Day 2018!

Virtual Shakespeare Tours

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 14:12:31 +0000

Ok, how did I not know about this?  Google Arts and Culture has virtual tours (or, rather, panoramic images) of a number of Shakespeare locations including his birthplace, the Globe, Juliet’s balcony, New Place, and others.   I’d literally never seen Shakespeare’s birthplace in context before. The ability to simply turn my head and see what’s … Continue reading Virtual Shakespeare Tours

The Desert Island Game

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 13:45:10 +0000

It would be cliche for me to say, “You’re stranded on a desert island with just one book, what book do you want?” but I’ve always wanted to ask the question anyway.  I was almost interviewed for a podcast once (never happened) where the guy had a set of questions he asked everybody, and that … Continue reading The Desert Island Game

Shakespeare Makes Life Over

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 16:06:52 +0000

So, what are you doing for Shakespeare’s Birthday (aka Shakespeare Day) this year, April 23, 2018? Not so fast. If you enjoy a good wild and crazy conspiracist theory (who doesn’t?), it looks like the world might end before we make it half way through our folios: The world is going to end on April … Continue reading Shakespeare Makes Life Over

Guest Post : Still Dreaming by Hank Rogerson

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 14:55:29 +0000

‘Still Dreaming,’ a documentary that in many ways is a sequel to another film I (Hank, not Duane) directed called ‘Shakespeare Behind Bars,’ will premiere on PBS starting this Saturday, April 14. STILL DREAMING is a multi-award winning film about the powers of creativity, and how engaging in art-making can deeply enrich our lives at … Continue reading Guest Post : Still Dreaming by Hank Rogerson

Comics by Geeklet

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 17:53:51 +0000

So my son’s 12th birthday is coming up, and like many almost 12yr olds he dreams of being Internet famous.  His latest foray is into the world of three panels comics, and he’s trying to develop a following on Instagram. He keeps asking me, “Share this to your followers!” I keep replying, “Write something with … Continue reading Comics by Geeklet

Review : Sherlock Gnomes

Sun, 08 Apr 2018 20:38:08 +0000

When you heard that the sequel to Gnomeo and Juliet was Sherlock Gnomes and that it would still be the original cast of characters, you probably had the same thought I did. Is there going to be any Shakespeare in this? The short answer is, “Yes, actually.”  But it’s in a way that most people … Continue reading Review : Sherlock Gnomes

How The Night Came : Solo Shakespeare Guitar

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 16:43:51 +0000

Here’s a pleasant little treat for you all, courtesy Martin (by way of Japan): I recently recorded ten ambient guitar interludes inspired by my favourite phrases from Shakespeare’s history plays. These pieces are slowly evolving soundscapes designed to give the listener time to reflect on Shakespeare’s words. How The Night Came is a collection of … Continue reading How The Night Came : Solo Shakespeare Guitar

Guest Post : The Cat That Wasn’t

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 13:33:48 +0000

A copying error changes the meaning of Hamlet. “What damned error, but some sober brow Will bless it and approve it with a text…?” –The Merchant of Venice Copying errors are pernicious. Once introduced, an error can be used as a template for a new copy, and that bad copy can be copied again, and … Continue reading Guest Post : The Cat That Wasn’t

The Great Shakespeare Egg Hunt

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 15:09:56 +0000

With Easter approaching, what do you say we go hunting for eggs in Shakespeare’s work?  I’m not going to list them all here (since it’s easy to hunt them down with a search engine where’s the fun in that?) but I’ll hit the most famous ones.  Add more in the comments! “Give me an egg, … Continue reading The Great Shakespeare Egg Hunt
