Day 9: Book bucket list

As any bibliophile or English major, I have an ever-growing reading list, which I never get to finish.  Here’s my reading list thus far.  Must-reads are marked with an asterisk (*).

A Kafkaesque Hamlet:

You’ve never been sure where Hamlet calls home, or what exactly he is the Prince of. It’s a shame your first visit to the place he calls home has to be on the heels of his father’s passing. Eventually, you’re not sure if the claw marks Elsinore leaves are permanent. 

  • The castle didn’t exist a moment ago. You step into the grounds of Elsinore and suddenly it hurts to breathe and gadflies buzz in your brain. You turn back to Hamlet—sharp toothy smile and long limbs that don’t fit in school desks—and you suddenly understand.

  • Elsinore birthed Hamlet. Elsinore clings to him like stubborn moss or pebbles to the treads in one’s shoes.

  • You get lost. You find your way. You get lost again the next day. You trace your steps until your blisters bleed and still, still, tomorrow, you will be lost.

  • Sometimes, the King emerges from seemingly nowhere at all and engages you in a pleasant conversation about the necessity of capital punishment, or his favourite book, or the best way to systemically weed a garden. Every time his mild smile and easy words breaks some frozen sea in your heart and you debate long into exhaustion. The next morning, you agree to watch him for guilt, to help Hamlet plan his death. By the scant daylight, the King is spider-fingers and eyes too bright and hissing anger.

  • There are no servants in Elsinore. The meals are still like clockwork.

  • They say Ophelia’s drowned, but you can still hear her wailing in the long and empty halls. Hamlet and Laertes argue in her empty grave as you carefully inch away from her staring ghost.

  • Everyone dies. It happens after dinner.

  • When you emerge, the castle fades away behind you into mist. When you look back, there is only an empty hillside and all that’s left for your is the brightness that is Prague. Has there ever been an overcast sky in Prague? You get lost but when you learn the way this time, it sticks.

  • You ask about Elsinore (of course); nobody answers (of course)

Anyway can someone put me in a fake coma and wake me up when the extra season 2 content of Voltron is here

You might know that there has been talk of a ‘Rebecca’ remake for years. This got me thinking about who they could cast as Mrs Danvers. I probably won’t watch it or maybe I’ll hate-watch because I am protective of Mrs Danvers and I want whoever to do her justice. So to get to the point; who would you consider a worthy enough actress to portray the greatest lady loving housekeeper of all time? My suggestion under the cut 👀

I know we’ve already been saying this the whole season but god dammit Tarjei and Henrik need the biggest fucking applause.. We all needed that clip “minutt for minutt”.. and Henrik is just amazing at portraying the inner conflict that Even is having. The whole season he’s been amazing at building up the character and hinting that things were off but making sure the audience wasn’t quite sure why.
I was anxiously waiting to see how he would be able to portray Even after Isak and the audience found out about his mental illness. But he has handled it with such delicacy and it’s not over dramatic. It’s realistic and his face and body expresses what his words does not. But at the same time Even finally verbally expresses his fears and thoughts. That’s major character development!
And of course Tarjei is doing once again a wonderful job at showing how much Isak cares and loves Even with out even saying the three little words. The gestures, the “you’re not alone” , the freaking “Even og Isak minutt for minutt” game…

‘The Killing’s Kristoffer Nyholm To Direct Tom Hardy Event Series ‘Taboo’

EXCLUSIVE: Danish director Kristoffer Nyholm, who helmed the acclaimed Scandinavian series The Killing, has boarded Tom Hardy event TV series Taboo. Nyholm, credited with a major role in the rise of “Nordic Noir,” will direct the first four episodes of the eight-part series. Hardy stars as James Keziah Delaney, who returns to London in 1813 after 10 years in Africa to discover that he has been left a mysterious legacy by his father. Driven to right the wrongs of the past, Delaney finds himself in a face-off against the East India Company, while playing a dangerous game between two warring nations — Britain and the newborn U.S. Steven Knight, whose collaborations with Hardy include Peaky Blinders and Locke, has created and written the series.

1864 is a Danish television series, depicting the Second Schleswig War fought between the Kingdom of Denmark and the German Confederation (Prussia and Austria), although in reality the German Confederation did not take part in the war and called the war illegitimate. The Second Schleswig War ended in 1864 with Denmark conceding around 25% of its territory to the Prussian and Austrian armies. This outcome had a profound effect on Denmark, setting the country’s course for its modern development. The series was the most expensive Danish TV series to date (2014).

I just finished watching the serie, not bad at all, perhaps too exaggerated characters, but the fight scenes are well taken, especially in the Seven chapter.
