"I have so much of you in my heart."
Would you call it a… Shylock? YEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHH

Macbeth as a competitive restaurant starring James MacAvoy as a tasty man cooking for us?
Let’s admit it: if Shakespeare saw about a tenth of the material written and discussed about his body of work, he would drink himself stupid and laugh himself silly.
Othello Drinking Game:
-Take a drink every time Iago is described as “honest”
If you’re one hardcore motherfucker, add this one:
I’m watching Hamlet 2000 tonight and I cannot find a drinking game
It’ll be in a classroom and stuff so I won’t actually be drinking, but they’re still fun to play.
GIVE ME THINGS FOR A HAMLET 2000 DRINKING GAME. That is your mission, should you choose to accept it. You have one hour.
So today I wrote this post for Shakespeare class discussion for A Midsummer Night’s Dream about art, really really bad art.
It was asking about art that was so terrible it had killed our souls a little (my example: listening to music being murdered with the best intentions as the Junior High band played at our Christian-You-Pay-Tuition-to-Go-Here-So-Manifest-Musical-Gifts school concerts), and art that was so completely terrible, that it looped back around to transcendent and life affirming. I talked about The Room. Because really, it is. I’m not getting breast cancer test results back—LIFE AFFIRMED! I’m not Denny. I’m just not Denny. LIFE AFFIRMED! I’m not being cheated on by a girlfriend who hates me so much she tells anyone who will listen that she doesn’t love me and tries to tell people that I abuse her. LIFE AFFIRMED! And I didn’t mention drinking games or curse at all in the post, so I’m doin’ all right.
