newredshoes: radio tower on top of the world (hollow crown | will this content you?)

(no subject)

A few quick news-ish pieces!
  • If you missed The Hollow Crown for whatever reason, each episode is lurking around on YouTube. Get 'em while they're hot.
  • If you poke around in the DeviantArt gallery of Rod Espinosa, you can find neat comic-style illustrations for a couple of plays, including Cymbeline, Romeo & Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. I haven't been able to find a set-up that's more ordered, but if I do, it'll go up here.
  • Via shakespearean, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre plays set to screen in movie theaters in the UK, USA, Australia, and New Zealand, including All's Well That Ends Well, Much Ado About Nothing and, for Dr. Who fans, the production of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus featuring Arthur Darvill. Trailer and poster here.

    Community spotlight: This England

    Since The Hollow Crown has given me all these feelings about the history plays, I've been champing at the bit for fannish and nerdy links. Thanks to a fic rec that came my way, I've discovered [livejournal.com profile] thisengland, which has had a bunch of excellent activity on LJ for quite some time. For instance:
  • Damn Near All the Histories Fic on the Web
  • Resources for getting into the fandom
  • Ficathons!

    I am definitely planning on spending some time browsing, not to mention finishing that Richard II-with-robots AU.

    Do you have any great Shakespeare communities or links you've loved? Know of a particular fic that everyone needs to know about (it can be yours!)? We'd love to hear about it! Comments and separate posts equally encouraged.

    Cymbeline comic by notinboats

    You're all probably going to hear a lot about my overwhelming love of Cymbeline in the future. One thing that makes me happier than just about anything is seeing other people wildly in love with Cymbeline too.

    [tumblr.com profile] notinboats has just started a comic adaptation of Shakespeare's clips show (I say that with deep and abiding love), and she's typing up a bunch of interesting notes beneath each page on her process. New pages are due to come out once or twice a week, and the story is set in "vaguely 1940s Britain." Give it a look-see! (She's also got some excellent Shakespeare illustrations on her website.)

    Anyone else know of any good Shakespeare-derived projects floating around?

    Excellent free ebooks

    If any of you are the ebook-liking type, or if you just like having a handy electronic copy of Shakespeare's works, the University of Adelaide has some beautiful ebooks available for online browsing or straight-up download in several formats. I had only been aware of the MIT collection, which has been on the internet since 1993.

    Single-topic Tumblrs will save the world.

    Many people here have Tumblrs or follow Tumblrs. There are a number of great Shakespeare-related ones out there! Some of these are rarely updated, which is a shame, but I would definitely love to hear about more that I've missed if you have them. (The way you can link Tumblrs on DW is <user name="fillintheblank" site="tumblr.com">.)

    [tumblr.com profile] shakespearean seems to be the most active Shakespeare-specific Tumblr I've seen. Lots of great links to articles, productions, videos and news.

    [tumblr.com profile] fuckethaythehollowcrown, for all your The Hollow Crown needs.

    [tumblr.com profile] fuckyeahsleepnomore is for making all of us who haven't had the chance to experience this by all accounts brilliant reinterpretation of Macbeth jealous.

    A few more, more archival than not. )

    So yes! What are your favorite Shakespeare Tumblrs?
