2016 is the Year of Shakespeare [JJ]

This year the world get's to celebrate a really awesome number in history. Shakespeare's 400th anniversary of his death. Ok, his death sucks, but we will be celebrating his life, his plays, his legacy. Now. That's. Awesome.
It's going to be a really awesome year for Shakespearan's. Get ready...

Here's what is happening across the world for Shakespeare!!

Productions across the globe! Though some theatre companies even strictly do Shakespeare, more productions will appear around the Globe (get it?) to celebrate the
Shakespeare Film! Digital video screenings at universities, online, and special showcase television screenings.
Shakespeare Talks. Don't know much about the bard? Well professors across the world know a lot about the dude, and they are STILL talking about his awesome works. And why they are influential. I know for me especially, understanding the meaning behind something give me a better appreciation for art.
Want to see what other events are happening near you?! There's an app for that!! Shakespeare Passport via Android and Apple will let you know all the events that are happening. Check out and see what your local community is doing to celebrate the playwright!
Final EVENT! On 23 April, Simon Callow hosts a gala concert at the Royal Festival Hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus. Also, a broadcast on BBC2 from Stratford and hosted by one-time Hamlet, David Tennant will take place.
ALSO: Rumor is that Benedict Cumberbatch might be in on the fun.
I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, and I know that's not saying much (because well he is one of the most influential, if not THE most influential playwright ever). But when I say I mean I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, I mean I've read ever single one of his plays, a bunch of his sonnets, written several papers on the man, and a been in few productions.
I'm not a Shakespeare expert, but my god is his stuff brilliant. I couldn't be more excited.
(This card is part of a preview of the 2016 year ahead in News. Jump Ahead January is taking place all across Vingle! Check it out everyone <<HERE>>!!)

Anyone else excited for this year Shakespeare?!

Minhyuk Hurt Again?
Multiple fans at a fan meet in Manila, as the video was posted by a girl there, a fan reportedly asked him if his leg was ok due to how he looked in the first couple of songs, he responded saying that he was fine. But also seen in the video at the end he bowed at his part because he knew it was obvious he in fact did hurt his right knee and was messing up during the dances. It is very painful to watch, seeing how much it hurts him.

5 Shakespeare Quotes Turned Relevant Rap Lyrics
Move over Drake. Contrary to popular belief, rap is a form of poetry.We all know him for his best sonnets and amazing syntax. He was the love maestro who made us fall in love with the story of Romeo and Juliet, or this case -- Romero and Junetta. If he was alive, there would be no feeling categorized as 'drake', we would all he feeling 'shakey'. Yes, I just made that up, but allow me to explain. Before there was a 2 Live Crew, Biggie Smalls, Puff Daddy, Master P, Lil Wayne, J.Cole, Drake or Kendrick -- there was Big Willy and no, I'm not referring to Will Smith. I'm talking about Shakespeare, William Shakespeare to be exact. The original mack daddy, way before Usher claimed to be one. To be or not to be would not be the question, but rather -- never mind. I wilt not spoil thy leisure. Keep scrolling and see what an amazing rapper Shakespeare would be if he were still alive. Play: The Tempest 'Hear my soul speak: The very instant that I saw you, did My heart fly to your service.' Translation: Say baby my heart wanted you the second you crossed my path, let's make a dash -- if that's not too brash. Play: As You Like It 'But, mistress, know yourself: down on your knees, And thank heaven, fasting, for a good man's love.' Translation: You better recognize when you got a good thing on your team. Play: Hamlet 'To be or not to be is the question.' Translation: Is you is or is you ain't? That is the question. Play: The Merchant of Venice 'But love is blind, and lovers cannot see The pretty follies that themselves commit; For, if they could, Cupid himself would blush.' Translation: Love is blind and it will take over your mind. Word to Eve. Play: Timon of Athens 'My heart is ever at your service.' Translation: I got what you want, got what you need. What's your favorite Shakespeare quote? Do you think Shakespeare has what it takes to be a rapper?

17 Things Only Theater Majors Understand
People don't get how time consuming, soul consuming and life consuming our profession is. It takes balls to get up on stage, and get back stage to run a show. Don't hate, appreciate! I went to Ohio University's Division of Theater. It was incredible. I laughed, I cried, I made mistakes and ultimately I learned a lot about living and the possibility of happiness. Studying acting for four years was the best decision of my life. I made lifelong friends and learned a lot about myself, but ultimately I learned that there are just some things that only theater people understand. When people walk by the theater building or classroom, they're going to hear screaming and crying. It's totally normal. Some people think that you are all crazy, but you're making art damn it! One minute you're laughing, the next you're crying. It's all apart of the job. Classes can be pretty damn draining. The most real emotion that ever happens is when the cast list goes up. We can try our damndest to live authentically through imaginary circumstances on stage, but we will laugh, cry, scream, and live extremely truthfully when we see what part we've gotten. Whether good or bad, each part has its challenges and rewards. Tech week is the closest thing to hell you'll see. Nothing is closer to hell than tech week.The hours are long and the tensions are at an all time high. There's always that moment where you're like, "THE SHOW IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN." and then, somehow, magically it comes together. Shakespeare... Oh, the Bard, one of the most frustrating and incredible people on the planet. You never feel more alive or more terrified then when you're reciting his immortal words. Don't mess up the rhythm and don't fuck up the words. Each one is so important that your teacher will ultimately try and slit your throat if you mess up. As they should, for nothing is as important as Shakespeare. Counter space in the dressing room is like your home. Counter space is like currency, especially in the women's dressing room. Some people dress them up with photos and flowers, and others throw their shit everywhere in hopes of finding the right eyeliner for the period piece you are always thrown into. Dress rehearsals always suck, and that means the show is going to be amazing. If you come out of a final dress or tech rehearsal feeling like you've got a kickass show, you better watch out. The nerves and everything else culminate on that oh so important opening night and everything becomes real. It's amazing. Meisner technique... Basically you cry, scream, throw things, stab things, fight, kiss, stab things, make messes and hate yourself afterward. It teaches you to be extremely truthful, which you might carry over into your real life. Whoops, it's just acting right? You will become best friends with your cast mates / tech crew. You have to be a family. Some pretty personal things go down during rehearsals, and backstage. Because you're bearing your soul and giving everything you have emotionally, you have to be open and available. Vulnerability is key, and when you need help you can ask your theater family. The people in your classes will know everything there is to know about you. Being in an acting studio will really teach you to trust people. It's all about falling through the air and realizing that you have people to catch you. There are a lot of rituals. The opening night songs, the flowers, the "break a leg" phrase. Everyone has their own superstitions in the theater, and it's all in hopes of being authentic, honest and completely stellar on stage. Anyone who doesn't have a little ritual they do before they go on stage, isn't in the theater. No matter what, the show must go on, and that is the truth. There is always something happening, whether it's backstage or on the stage, we have to have back-up plans and procedures. People get sick, injured and sometimes they can't even stand, but somehow the muster up the courage to get through it. The show must go on. And theater builds character. The theory and literature classes are really exciting at first, but coupled with rehearsals and projects...ugh. No. And those teachers are all, "these classes are important too!" They are! But when you're running on 4 hours of sleep...no. No. Blocking is a major pain in the ass, but it's necessary. Yes. I walk here, but I want to walk there, can I change it? Lighting, sound COSTUMES and the set are VERY VERY important. There's nothing like seeing everything come together, and it makes you appreciate the talents of everyone in the bulding, actors, tech and beyond. There is nothing like putting on your costume for the first time! Trust me, it really gets you into character. Showmances. Romeo falls in love with Juliet blah blah blah. If you spend a lot of time acting like you love someone, you just might start to love them off stage too. Cast and crew hook-ups sometimes lead to amazing chemistry, and others just go down in flames. Whatever the result, they're exciting right. And theater majors love drama! Everyone's always like: Why aren't you on Broadway yet!? Because some of us want to teach, or help people, or act in films. Not everyone who goes to theater or acting school wants to end up on Broadway. There are millions of things you can do with a theater degree! Hell, I write! People always say: What can you do with that degree? EVERYTHING. I learned more from being a theater major than a lot of my friends did in business school. It's all about discovering yourself and learning through experience. I don't regret a thing. Lots of my friends are in business, marketing, writing and are going to graduate schools. Theater changes lives and minds. Don't let anyone sway you from majoring in it! Theater is hard, rewarding and scary, and everyone who studies it learns to have no regrets. Because leaving it all on the stage, giving everything you have and knowing that you have a chance to be someone else for a while makes it all worth it. Break a leg!
Shakespeare was a Stoner
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears...In a new discovery 400-year-old tobacco pipes excavated that were from the garden of William Shakespeare were found to contain cannabis. So, to put it bluntly... Shakespeare was a stoner. The scientists at the Evolutionary Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand, tested 24 fragments of pipe loaned from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and cannabis was found in eight samples, four of which came from Shakespeare's property. Now, the question we are all thinking: Did the weed have an influence on this sensational playwright’s work? With a list of stoner creatives (George Washington, Queen Elizabeth, basically all of ancient Greece) in the history books, this is just another one to add to the inventory of. Stoners of the world: You can now use “Shakespeare did it so now I can too! Not all stoners are bums and losers. This guy was the most successful playwright of all time.” As another excuse to your mom, dad, or anyone else for that matter. And you’ll start writing all the best plays. Including, but not limited to: Twelfth Night Faded A Midsummer Night's Taco Run Much Ado About Doing Nothing The Dealer of Venice Alls Well That Ends Weed Ok, that last one was pretty bad, but you get it. Or maybe soon you’ll start crafting your own sonnets: “Shall I compare thee to a giant bag of chips, or some Chicken McNuggets... thou art more lovely and temperate...” (Please note: I’m not condoning illegal behavior. If you don’t smoke, that’s cool too dude. You could be next Shakespeare without the added doobie. Just maybe it won’t be as fun.)
{AH} Artist Hours Overview
Dear fellow Vinglers, At long last, the project I have been developing is finally ready to be opened to the public. What is this project you ask? It's a little something I like to call Artist Hours. As an artist, I have always had the struggle of finding the time and motivation to practice. It was so hard... then I realized that I'm not the only one with this issue. There were countless other people, just like me, who were having the exact same problem. The trouble of finding motivation is a difficult one, or so I've found. So what do I do? The only thing I'm good at. Technology what not. In short I have developed a website that will fix our problem. It works on a point system, allowing users to compete for the most points. Points will reset at the end of each month. Competition should fix the motivational issue that we have, but there's still more features to come! It's still in the beta stages for the most part, and I plan on adding lots of stuff later in the game, but for now the main idea is online and operational. What is Artist Hours This madness is called Artist Hours. Allow me to elaborate in infomercial style. ARE YOU AN ARTIST!?! If so, Artist Hours is just for you! As an artist, I'm sure you know the struggle of having to find the time ad motivation to practice, am I correct!?! OF COURSE I AM!!! Artist Hours will fix all of your problems! It works on a point system. The more time you pour into practicing, the more points you earn! The more points, the better. With each hour you practice, you get ten points! At the end of each month, one person will be declared the winner, and will receive the Virtual Crown of Art, as well as bragging rights. WAIT!!! THERE'S MORE!!! There are these things called Tasks! If you complete a Task, you get five more points! ISN'T THAT AMAZING!?! How are you suppose to keep track of your points? Lucky you, I have designed a beautiful printable seen on the Artist Hours website! Just save (or copy) the image, and plaster it into a new Google Documents (or Word document (or Open Office.Org document)) and print it off! Then colour in a new level for every hour you are artistic for. Make sure to also colour in Task boxes each time you finish a task as well! In order to submit it at the end of each month, just take a readable picture and email it to me (al3xanderbeta@gmail.com) with the subject line as "SCORES" and make sure to let me know what your Vingle username is! IT'S THAT SIMPLE!!! Links Artist Hours Website: https://artisthours.orbs.com/ Art inspiration: http://artprompts.org/ Writing inspiration: http://www.seventhsanctum.com/generate.php?Genname=writeprompt Please! I am begging you! If you find project Artist Hours interesting / a good concept / a cool idea, share this thing everywhere! You have no clue how much it helps me, and how motivated I get when people actually use the stuff I make! \(^.^)/ Aaaaaaand I'm gunna tag pplz who may or may not like something like this! (Actually I'm just tagging people who have rlllllly rllllly pretty art! >:3 ) =========== @JayEstrella @RawuelArredondo @jessicaacosta90 @Ash2424701 @ardo @AronFox @Jasong659 @mst2000mt @Earsx18 @artismyescape @sheeriowolfluv
Why Harry Potter Fans Should Be Freaking Out this Week
J.K. Rowling is just making me the happiest little Harry Potter nerd of all time. Why is that you say? Well, two things happened this week that have me FREAKING OUT. Check out this REALLY IMPORTANT Potter news! The First Look at the Prequel Movie! The title treatment for the movie was released, and it looks pretty familiar if you ask me. According to Entertainment Weekly, it's a similar font and style to the HP films. The designers made one big change to the letters, replacing the lightning bolt on the original “P” in “Potter” with a serpentine “S” in “Beasts.” The movie premiers in November 2016. J.K. Rowling is Writing a New Children's Book! Rowling gave an interview won BBC Radio Tuesday saying some real important stuff: “Actually, I have written part of a children’s book that I really love, so I’m definitely going to finish that. There will be another children’s book.” The interviewer then asked if she had a lot of ideas in her head! "I have so many ideas...I sometimes genuinely worry that I’ll die before writing them all out. That’s my mid-life crisis, that I’ll leave this earth without having written them all." WHY IS SHE SO COOL. Add that to the fact that she's still working on a play... This is old news, for the hardcore fans, but still exciting nonetheless. J.K. Rowling announced in June that she is working on a play called, The Cursed Child essentially the story of James and Lilly Potter before their untimely death. Well, you could just say I'm the happiest little book, theatre, and Potter lover this week. Please excuse me as I curl up in bed and re-read all the books and re-watch all the movies. Who else out there is excited?!
셰익스피어의 캐릭터 죽이기
왕좌의 게임 새 시즌이 오늘부터 방영된 기념이다. 2016년은 다들 아시다시피 윌리엄 셰익스피어 사망 400주년인데, 5월에 상당히 특이한 연극이 상연된다(참조 1). Spymonkey 프러덕션(참조 2)이라는 곳에서, The Complete Deaths라는 제목의 연극을 만들었다. 왜 제목이 저런 식이냐 궁금하실 텐데, 이 연극의 내용은 오로지 죽는 장면 뿐이다. 셰익스피어가 썼다고 하는 희곡들을 보면 모두 74 차례의 사망 장면이 나온다. 참고로 현재까지 51화가 방영된(오늘 시즌 6, 1화 방영!) 왕좌의 게임 드라마 안에서 사망한 사람 수는 64명이다(1화에서 주요 캐릭터 3명이 죽었다). 아직까지는 죽은 셰익스피어가 RR 마틴보다 10명 더 죽인 셈이다(물론 곧 추월되리라고 본다). 기사 링크를 보시면 셰익스피어가 얼마나 많은 캐릭터들을 죽였는지 자세한 통계와 함께 나온다. 가장 셰익스피어가 선호한 방식은 등 뒤로 찌르기이다(30회). 즉, 이 연극은 셰익스피어가 묘사한 죽음 장면만 계속 보여주는 매우 특이한 셰익스피어 기념 연극이라는 얘기다. 영국인들답게, 코메디 연극이다. 물론 전통주의자들의 볼멘 소리(참조 3)가 있기는 하지만, 꽤 인기 끌지 않을까 싶다. 이거 보면 셰익스피어의 클라이막스 장면만 마스터 할 수 있다는 얘기 아닌가? 참고로 정말 멋지게 셰익스피어에 나오는 사망 장면을 그래픽으로 분류한 페이지(참조 4)도 있다. 얼음과 불의 노래 소설 쓰기 말고는 모든 것을 다 하는 조지 RR 마틴(참조 5)이 제일 먼저 이 연극을 보리라 장담한다. ---------- 참조 1. Northampton Royal에서 상연되는데, Brighton Festival에서도 나온다고 한다. 2. 공식사이트: http://www.spymonkey.co.uk/the-complete-deaths.html 3.
