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...

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!

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.

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
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

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
