October 6: Shakespeare: Original pronunciation

Leaving Star Trek behind (for now, at least), we move on to…Shakespeare. How’s that for a little whiplash.

See, the trick to accumulating material from YouTube is to allow your mind to drift into a complete free-association blur of reality. With this freedom, you can switch between high concept science fiction (Wagon Train in the Stars) to the foundations of drama.

This piece made the rounds on my Facebook and seems a nice kick-off point for a week’s worth of videos on the subject.

From documentary to humor, animation, live action and mind-bending modern fiction, Shakespeare represents a combination of the classical and the modern. (See, for example, 10 Things I Hate About You.)

The first time I visited England, they were just breaking ground on the Globe. I still haven’t seen the inside of the theatre, but I intend to, someday.
