I cannot get over this line. It’s the greatest line in television history.
Trigger Warning: Racism, sexism, homophobia, rape apologism, some truly heinous stuff. Approach with caution. Today, the Hugo Award nominations were released. Given how strong a year it was in scie…
Vox Day, a racist sexist homophobic rape apologist who called a woman of colour a “half savage” and implied she shouldn’t be surprised if she was ever shot and killed, just received a Hugo Award nomination.
This is not one.
(But I already LIVED through the 80s!)
Surprise! A bonus project that’s actually complete (through season 1) that I did in pseudo-secret is now ready. 13 reviews AND videos, and it’ll run for 13 days straight.
Thanks for supporting me and thanks for the hundreds of people who have requested that I do a Mark Watches of Hannibal. I finally pulled it off, which is something I’ve always wanted to do. It only too me like 3 years to do something like this LOL.
The #Macbeth warning #broadway
This was my favorite thing.
no but the whole Macbeth thing is legit okay
my school was doing Pride and Prejudice last spring [I had some tiny little extra part, but that’s not important]. The girl playing Mrs. Bennet said “Macbeth” as a joke, which then was explained because seriously we’re high schoolers I was surprised even she knew about it we don’t just know random curse knowledge
the play was set back a week because Mr. Darcy got appendicitis, Elizabeth Bennet broke her right forearm, Mr. Bingley lost his voice, and Mrs. Bennet went head over handlebars on her bike all in the week of the play.
you don’t f*** with the Macbeth curse okay if Supernatural has taught me anything it’s not to f*** with curses
….omg can we have an episode of Supernatural about the Macbeth curse?
IT COULD BE THE MUSICAL EPISODE WE ALL WANT OMFG
once a guy said macbeth in our theater and then the entire set came falling down
several people got concussions
How the hell do they preform the play,
There are characters named Macbeth
You can say it but only in the context during the play.. No other time
Thank you for explaining.
(I’ve literally wondered about that for years)
I want to do a production of Macbeth where no one says “Macbeth” and everyone goes to increasingly ridiculous lengths to avoid it.
"A drum, a drum! The Patsy doth come!"
My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid. She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’ So like, don’t do this.
For the longest time I thought “Penelope” was pronounced “penn-eh-lope”!
On the podcast I’m constantly like “Shit, I’ve only ever read this word.”
I will still pause when speaking and say, “Gosh, I’ve never gotten to say this one out loud before but I’ve read it lots. Please let me know if I’m pronouncing it wrong, okay?” and the people with whom I’m speaking have always shared the joy of finally getting to speak a known but unvoiced word and have always understood the intimidation of trying out a new word.
Ask me about “misled.”
I didn’t put it together that “epitome” and the word that sounds like “E-pit-to-me” were the same word until about 6 years ago.
