Blogging changes

Well, it's happening again. Weebly has been changing into more of an e-commerce platform than its earlier incarnation as a blogging platform, and I'm not finding it nearly as easy to use anymore. So I've been moving some of my blogs around a little. Here's where we are - located at Medium now, instead of WeeblyBible Bookshelf - moved to Tumblr ( Street Babble - for now, still at Weebly ( Wigglestick - k...

Trump's ridiculous new platform

Since I don't promote this online journal anywhere, I don't have to worry about speaking my mind on a recent announcement by Donald Trump about his new "platform," entitled "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump. This was being touted awhile back as a new social media platform, which it is absolutely not. The thing is, all this site does is allow Trump to post material that's pretty much the same as his infamous Tweets, without actually using Twitter or Facebook. Users can't actually respond with ...

Diablo Swing Orchestra

This is one of my favorite bands. One of these days, I need to see them live!

It worked! It WORKED!

I don't know what changed, maybe was having technical difficulties today. But I've been trying all day long to re-connect my Evernote account with my Corybanter blog, and all of a sudden it worked! Oh happy day!

Recommended Shakespeare Editions: Arden, Oxford, and Cambridge – Waggish

Clip source: Recommended Shakespeare Editions: Arden, Oxford, and Cambridge – Waggish Recommended Shakespeare Editions: Arden, Oxford, and CambridgeThis page contains my recommendations for critical, annotated editions of Shakespeare’s plays, followed by a selection of my favorite criticism. Almost all of the plays have enough references and ambiguities that it’s worth having a knowledgeable guide to consult with and to agree and disagree with. I don’t claim to be an expert, just an informed ...

Review: ‘The New Oxford Shakespeare: Modern Critical Edition’ – The Oxford Culture Review

January 16, 2017 Review: ‘The New Oxford Shakespeare: Modern Critical Edition’ With any new publication, especially concerning the "universal" bard, it’s worth asking, ‘Who is this for?’ The New Oxford Shakespeare is no different. Coming to us from general editors Gary Taylor, John Jowett, Terri Bourus, and Gabriel Egan, Oxford University Press’s fourth iteration of the complete works is actually not one book, but four: The Complete Works: Modern Critical Edition (under review here...

Scratch Pad - Apr 12, 12:11 PM

I'm curious as to what the Scratch Pad does, once I write something. How about a Hamlet haiku? A Ghost is walking The Prince is wearing black clothes "Too too solid flesh..."

Blogging Shakespeare

As Shakespeare's birthday draws nearer (April 26 is generally seen as the traditional date), I've been getting back into blogging about Shakespeare, one of my main passions. I'm going to begin a reading plan in another week, beginning with Hamlet, and attempt to read the Complete Works on my own. That should be interesting, as I've never read all the Sonnets and other poems. I'm pretty sure I've read most or all of the plays, although several are more precious to me than others: Hamlet, Much ...
