mymetalphantom: (Vladimir Putin...may be a bit evil)
Last night was open mic night at the Yardbird in Birmingham city centre. Lots of fun. Some good music and good company. Wonderful.

Anywho, this is what I really came here to post. A friend of mine reminded me of the "Animated Tales" versions of Shakespeare plays that we were shown at school. We talked a lot about how wonderfully disturbing the Macbeth one was (I totally love Macbeth!).

Do you need spoiler warnings for this sort of thing?

Recognise Macduff's voice?

Also on looking into these animated tales a little I discovered that Hamlet is voiced by Nicholas Farrell! I found that jolly amusing.

In other news, I actually took a copy of the Metro newspaper off the bus solely because it had pictures of Vladimir Putin topless horse riding. That qualifies as fairly dodgy behaviour, right?

I need a Shakespeare icon.

Blah blah

Hot and bored (hot in the overheated sense of the word that is). Have stuff I want to say but just can't be arsed right now. Still can't find a job, which is a bit depressing but it's early days yet so I won't let it crush my spirit.

Anywho, here's a pic of Ian Richardson as Richard III:


D'aww, how young does he look there?
