--Who has actually read Romeo & Juliet and thought, "Wow, this is so romantic!" rather than "Damn, this is some depressing shit." Seriously, they're kids who've known each other four days, caught up in the middle of a maybe-centuries long conflict, their best friends/cousins are dropping all around them, and it ends with them both going mildly insane and killing themselves, Romeo never knowing that Juliet was actually alive, Juliet not knowing what was going on at all, and an open ending where, presumabely, someone's getting the shit for what went down.
--On that note, Mercutio rocks.
--Is it 'Othello' or 'Otello'?
--Detouring into awesome fan fiction territory, in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, has anyone else noticed how, aside from the actual excerts of Hamlet, there is no real Shakespeare language. In fact, I didn't need footnotes at all.
--Is it so morally and intellectually wrong that I first heard of A Midsummer's Night's Dream from an episode of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody?
--And of Macbeth from Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius?
--Shakespeare invented the word 'eyeball'. Say thank you, Eli Roth.
--My Film & Video teacher looks just like Shakespeare. No fucking joke.
