#(Ska said) ‘you know who said hi to his dad? KING RICHARD DID’  #King Richard didn’t say Hi to his dad  #King Richard’s dad was dead  #first rule and all (via runecestershire)

and oh boy would hal ever exploit this

YOU KNOW I’M NOT SURE HE EVER DID, POP

SEEING AS HIS FATHER AND HIS GRANDFATHER WERE BOTH DEAD AND ALL

WHAT WITH THAT BEING THE STANDARD COURSE OF ROYAL SUCCESSION

"you are so grounded" 

And then Hal, if he was being exceptionally witty, would make some pun about grounded and down and base court and bring up all of Henry’s guilt stuff.

Hamlet Livestream Announcement

What: The 1964 production of Hamlet starring Richard Burton. I saw about half of this ages ago, I remember liking it, but don’t remember much about it, so this should be fun :)

When: Sunday the 27th of July at 11:30 AM PST, which is 2:30 PM EST and 7:30 PM in London provided I’ve done my conversions correctly. (If there’s an arithmetic error here, base your corrections on the 11:30 Pacific.)

I’ll set up the stream at 11:00 pacific and just stream some music or something for half an hour, and then start the Marlowe at 11:30. This should give me time to iron out any unexpected livestream doomies, and you guys time to log in and kick livestream in the shins if it’s being doomy for you.

Where: https://new.livestream.com/accounts/7964108/events/3212573

How: You will need to sign in to livestream to watch, and livestream can be a tad befuddling. I’ve delineated how to sign up for an account and some of the quirks of the website in this post.

P.S. I’m also streaming Rylance’s Twelfth Night again on Friday (the 25th) at noon pacific.

Teeny tiny books like this are some the best things the world. They’re right up there with fluffy kittens and hot chocolate when it comes to delightful and comfortable things.

P.S. Keats would appreciate the pressed flowers. Go for it.

Paly azure and argent, a dance vert.

I’ve reblogged this artist’s stuff before, but these buttons are so cute and precise and the heraldry is so good, I kind of have to reblog it again :)
