modern day shakespeare adaptions that should exist

  • southern gothic macbeth. the bloody, brutal themes of the play in the suffocating atmosphere of the genre. the imagery of lady macbeth’s hands dripping with blood! the witches! macbeth’s madness when he believes the swamp has actually come to life to kill him! it’s like it was made for this play
  • political othello. make him secretary of defense or state. imagine a house of cards like environment. addresses issues of current racism and misogyny in politics, and Iago’s jealous/obsessive love for Othello with very clear homo-erotic undertones. like extremely explicit and how that translates in such a masculine setting to understand Iago’s intent.
  • police hamlet. hamlet senior as the deputy in nyc. his mysterious death draws his son home from stanford/harvard/what-have-you. a modern day noir-like detective mystery. emphasis on ophelia’s depression and subsequent decent into madness by popping too many pills. the way the “respectful” upper-class tear themselves apart splashed all across the media.
  • the tempest as lost.
  • titus andronicus as a proper horror movie, set in the current war in the middle east.
  • college midsummer nights dream. the fairyland is a popular night club. lots of dubstep music and drugs slipped in dark corners of the dance floor.

Bonnie: …Was that some sort of backhand compliment you gave me?

Marionette: Oh don’t be so full of yourself, just felt bad for you since you were born with a hideous hippo face and no one loves you. Just threw you a bone of a compliment for good measures with this ‘Santa Claws’ man.

Bonnie: Mmhm, sure.

Book Un-haul (February 2015)

This has been so long overdue, but I am finally starting to sort through my books. There are one or two here that I am still reconsidering if I want to keep, but most of these will either be going to charity or sold before I move back home. 

sure phil deserves some more subscribers but what about the other half of the fantastic foursome i mean kickthepj and crabstickz work so motherfuckin hard on their movies and skits which are literally the craziest funniest and most creative stuff i’ve ever laid eyes on and THEY BOTH HAVE LESS THAN ONE MILLION SUBSCRIBERS.
