Maybe not so much with the "unnatural acts"


I just adore Horatio, though, and since I quoted Hamlet's "words" line in my title I needed something from his BFF as a complement. If I had a fantasy BFF? Horatio. I appreciate Hamlet's complexity, particularly his delicious facility with language, but Horatio's steadfast loyalty never fails to move me. I mean, do you have any friends who would try to drink poison because you died? I'm pretty sure I don't.

Gods love Kenneth Branagh for directing Nick Farrell so brilliantly in his Hamlet movie--and Farrell himself for his subtle performance. Hey! Maybe he would consent to becoming my BFF, providing me a kind of six degrees of separation connection to the problematically fictional Horatio.

Nick! Call me!

Shelley--

I would totally drink poison if you died. Just so you know. And I would drink it because 1. you are awesome and 2. I would have no more of your blogs to read. You kick ass, sister!

makes me want to read hamlet again. it's been ages since i've been visited by ghosts that haunt and taunt in a dark recess--if it's dark and scary why do they call it a "recess"? school, playground, hello??!!
