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?!
{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!!!

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!
