Best bit of directing ever!

My wife and I were privileged enough to be able to see the world premier of Hamlet in the Original Pronunciation (since Shakespeare's time) this past weekend.  There were some odd cuts in the script, and the original brogue took a little getting used to, but over all it was an excellent production beautifully acted and directed.

 

Why am I posting this on an Atheist blog?  Because of one particularly amusing bit of directing.  In the scene where Hamlet is reading a book and…

Why I Am An Ex-Christian

Ok, so of course I have to start off with why I became a christian in the first place. I was 'saved' when i was 14 at the end of June, right before my first year of high school. During my 6th and 7th grade years, I became very depressed. I had no true interest in life and in was due largely to the fact that I had no plans for my life. I didn't know what I wanted, and basically let everybody else, but myself, make my choices.

This is HUGE for me and my family both as my first "real" career-type… Continue

I Need Help

Long story short, I'm starting up a Commedia dell 'Arte troupe and I need help with a name (and especially translating it into Italian!)



Here's the thing though, I don't want the name to specifically use the term Commedia because that may not be ALL we perform. While that will be what we start out with, we may also do some shortened Shakespeare plays along the lines of the Reduced Shakespeare Company in the future.

Splice

Just saw Splice. =3 It was entertaining and the imagery was excellent, but it fell short of any sort of poignant message. I could certainly suspend disbelief for roughly two hours to enjoy the sci-fi/creature feature. Side stories were touched on but never fully explained, and as any good creature feature does, it ran smack into absurdity several times... which is totally okay to laugh at.



Unless you're the herd of pigs that sat behind me in the theatre and talked and laughed the whole… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 231: A Very Edgar Christmas





Playwright Edgar Oliver just did a bit for The Moth called The Apron Strings of Savannah. He's my new temporary Personal Savior, making him just Christmassy enough, and very, very Xistlesslistlessnessmassy.
