morning coffee at luke's | Literary Starbucks
October 17, 2014 This morning, my friends-in-my-head at Book Riot posted a little something that made my day just that much better. It's like the writers of this site woke up one glorious morning and thought to themselves "Self, let's create something that will make Bear Allen happy!" And this was the result... Literary Starbucks What happens when your favorite literary persona sashays up to the barista! Here are a few of my faves: #morningcoffeeatlukes #neilgaiman #tomsawye

I just purchased a one-year subscription to Mental Floss and, along with it, ordered the most amazing t-shirt! It's okay to be jealous. #williamshakespeare #macbeth #mentalfloss #fun
Vikings and pastries
In Perfect Timing News, John Green released his Crash Course Hamlet yesterday. As we just read it, I figured I'd share the wonderful-ness! And also... DFTBA. #hamlet #williamshakespeare #johngreen #crashcourse
"Elizabethan haterade... Gotta have it!"
After Nietzsche, Shakespeare feels like reading Twilight! It's like a brain vacation. As I continue reading, I had to share Sparky Sweets, PhD's thoughts on the story of Hammy & Friends. Thug Notes 4 Lyfe! #thugnotes #hamlet #williamshakespeare #fun
"Fuck you is why... I'm going to the cemetery to touch skulls."
To finish off episode 18, we're going to read Hamlet by William Shakespeare. Skulls n' shit... cool. And I just stumbled across this so, perfect timing and whatnot...Hamlet reimagined with a teenage dirtbag cast. One of my favorite parts: LAERTES: Ophelia is dead HAMLET: damn LAERTES: she drowned herself HAMLET: thats metal i knew she was cool See the whole thing here: http://the-toast.net/2014/02/11/dirtbag-hamlet/ #williamshakespeare #hamlet #fun
The Deer-Hunters has been stuffed and mounted!
(Why yes, I AM corny!) Episode four, The Deer-Hunters, has been completed. In this episode, we read some of Shakespeare's most famous works. I really appreciated that this episode afforded me the opportunity to break outside of the plays Shakespeare is most well-known for, and allowed me to get a glimpse into his artistry as a poet through The Sonnets. Any true Gilmore girl knows that this is not the last we'll see of Shakespeare. "The Bard with the beard" will be back
