C'mon, you mean "Yo Juliet. It's your boy Romeo, holla" doesn't move you?

Just to jump in and be a total bag of dicks. "Wherefore" doesn't mean "where" it means why.

Basically Juliet is saying damn dude WHY do you have to be a filthy montague, bc this capulet needs your penis, so if you don't change your allegiance to your family than I will just to take a ride on that bologna pony.

I'm pretty sure "bologna pony" was a term used in Shakespeare's notes as well

You're welcome.

If the paraphrasing were a supplement to the real text, it would be one thing, especially for struggling students or individuals for whom English is a second language. But to answer your question: no, that's not really my idea of classic literature. It's kinda funny, though.

See, if you hadn't read the real play, you wouldn't know all of these things. Q.E.D. (Did I use that right?)

And thanks for always keeping things classy.

In an effort to stay on topic, I nominate LeoG and WHR as writers for the next awesome paraphrased edition of Shakespeare's complete works.

This had me thinking of another favorite Shakespeare quote that I like and I decided to see if it too could be modernized. Bonus points for whoever deciphers it!

"Yo homey, check it. Keep it 100 wit yo self playa. Then you won't be frontin' wit dem otha' G's."

Rock Sugar is a band that does great musical mash-ups of rock and pop songs from the 70's, 80's and 90's. This is their tribute to Journey and Metallica, 'Don't Stop the Sandman':

https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...4HffbAUTk#t=30

Their lead singer is professional voice actor and all around cool guy Jess Harnell. He was the voice of Wakko on Animaniacs and Captain Hero on Drawn Together.

It reminds me of Polonius' "to thine own self be true" speech in Hamlet, but I'm not sure because you transformed whatever it was quite thoroughly. You seem to have uncovered a new talent!

Never heard of these guys, but I liked it--it was way more fun than Journey's version of Don't Stop Believin'. A lot of songs would probably benefit from those Sandman riffs. I'm not sure my opinion is worth much when it comes to music, though--I also like the theme song from SpongeBob SquarePants and P!nk's Scurvy video
(I don't know why there are German subtitles, but then why not?)

Thanks! I've never actually read Hamlet in its entirety , but I remember the Skipper as Polonius singing a version of that speech to "Laertes" (Mary Ann) in an episode of Gilligan's Island when the castaways were trying to impress a famous producer. Probably not the most reliable source for one's knowledge of Shakespeare--it's even worse than the paraphrased textbooks. That scene from Gilligan's Island was pretty funny, though, so I suppose that's awesome in its own way.

Geez, I just realized that I've now admitted my enjoyment of SpongeBob SquarePants, Metallica, and Gilligan's Island: do I have high-brow tastes or what?

Won't let me rep you, but consider yourself repped! I only just found this and (luckily given my day job is all about the Bard!) guessed right.

As Ms Brightside pointed out in the earlier post, we wouldn't be able to do this if we didn't know the original.

Paraphrasing as a sole means of getting to know a work is wrong, but it certainly is fun if you know what you're working from! More please!!

The late, great Shel Silverstein once did a jive version of Hamlet which you can probably find on the internet. As I recall it begins with Francisco saying:

"Now me and Bernardo, we was guardin' the castle
Keepin' it cool, not makin' no hassle,
Havin' ourselves a brew or two,
When outta the night comes 'Woo, woo, woo,'
And here comes this ghost, all ragged an' rank
In a rusty suit of armor, goin' clank, clank, clank.
I say, 'Hey, Mister Ghost, are you our dear, departed king?'
The ghost don't say one motherfuckin' thing.
He goes 'Woo, woo, woo.' I say, 'Hey, we better split,
An' go tell Hamlet 'bout this shit'...

This is the perfect excuse to introduce someone else to this YouTube Channel...his cliffnotes are spot on and highly entertaining; although, Romeo and Juliet is not one of his best, in my humble opinion.

What is that? A castle? A prison? Super villain lair?

Nope. Tile store.
Lol. I was thinking a high-security government building in some place like Washington, D. C., although that fence doesn't exactly look like an impenetrable barrier. Is this building somewhere close to where you live? It makes me wonder if the architect is a wannabe designer of nuclear command centers in North Dakota but had to settle for a tile store.

By the way, this is a flak tower in Hamburg; any resemblance to your photo is entirely coincidental.

I think you're getting tricked too easily.

If I were to have a personal super villain lair, tile store is the first thing I'd think to disguise it as. I'd watch out if I were you.


Around where I live, there's this building that was seemingly designed to be a Spirit Halloween store (which is strange, because they're temporary) and it looks really ridiculous when it's converted to another kind of store for the less exciting parts of the year.

Default I find stuff like this interesting...

The texture of Mega-TileMart looks kind of odd to me. Like, maybe, a giant had just spackeled it. Could it be that the original plan was to cover it all in various samples of tile?!? That could be eye-catching...
