i love how the two most cited love stories of all time are romeo & juliet and titanic and they both involve teenagers who knew each other for less than a week
and Leonardo DiCaprio played the male lead in both them.
Without winning an oscar for either
somehow we always end up here
SOOO sick of writing this paper. I think what I need is some tasty crab chowder and some Samoa cookies.
my favourite part of shakespeare plays is the person at the end that is like “see how these people fucked everything up. don’t do this. look at this fuckery. look at it. fuck this. fuck everything.”
something i’ve always wondered about asoiaf: the starks are all “we’re wolves!” and the greyjoys are “we’re krakens!” and the lannisters refer to themselves as lions alarmingly frequently and then you have dany who i’m 98% sure believes she is a winged, fire-breaking dragon
but what about some of these other houses right like what about house redwyne are they like “aw yeah we’re grapes” or house selmy “we’re fuckin’ wheat y’all, watch the fuck out” like
i’ve been wondering what this is from and it’s from this film called Kirikou et la Sorcière : Drawn from elements of West African folk tales, it depicts how a newborn boy, Kirikou, saves his village from the evil witch Karaba.
I saw this movie when I was in first grade with one of my best friends. We’re still good friends fourteen years later and quote it all the time.
nsfw = nice stuff for werewolves

"you make my heart beat in iambic pentameter."
no you don’t understand shakespeare literally writes to the beat of your heart
- that’s why shakespearean actors will sometimes pound their chests in time to the words during readings
- that’s why you use fluctuations in the rhythm to track your character’s emotional state - any irregularities in the scansion are like the character’s heart stuttering or jumping or skipping a beat
- that’s why when characters share the rhythm - switching off in the middle of a foot - those characters inevitably have an extraordinarily intimate connection
shakespeare fucking writes viscerally, he is literally in your body, and that, my friend, that is why the best shakespearean actors don’t posture and emote
you have to be fucking alive and passionate and electric - it can’t be intellectual, in the end, it has to be about connection and the sweating, cheering, jeering, bleeding masses you’re performing to, because make no mistake, shakespeare may go to lofty heights, but he only works if you’re just as grounded in the earth. he has to be in your body. he has to be in your body.
holy motherfucking shit i love shakespeare so much, get him in your bones, breathe him in, stomp and rage and pine, dadum dadum dadum dadum dadum, it is literally to the beat of your heart
Whenever I teach verse or direct a Shakespeare play, this is the FIRST thing I say. People need to be reminded that Shakespeare is human. It’s maybe the most human text you’ll ever encounter. It’s easy to forget that, especially because so many of his words are so iconic. But those words are as alive as you. Hell, they even breathe the same way.
