Bonjour Marc and Cześć Dorota!Greetings from Canyon. I had thought our MacBeth video had merged into Web format migration breakdown oblivion, but I was just able to view it again today - from 17 years ago in 1999! - I'm glad and surprised to write. You'll find it here - http://scottmacleod.com/
Shakespeare is amazing - his language in particular! It would be fun to do more of these! Shall we meet in a Google group video Hangout for further production of Shakespearean scenes? And we would have to memorize far less!
Will you both become the heads of Switzerland WUaS in French and Poland WUaS in Polish? :)
Hi A.S.K., (Ants, Scot, Koh),
You might enjoy this Shakespeare MacBeth video I made with friends Marc D and Dorota P about 17 years ago on Twin Peaks in SF, above where I was living at the time. You'll find it here - http://scottmacleod.com/
I've included the rest of my email to Marc (a UCSF researcher for 6 years at the time) and Dorota below for your enjoyment.
Shall we 4 enact a Shakespeare scene somewhere around SF or in a Google group video Hangout - for creativity and fun's sake?
Dear Nelson, You're an amazingly dynamic professor, and thank you too for allowing me to attend your UC Berkeley class and letting me know about Phillip Lowenthal's talk at the University Press Books in Berkeley as well. I'd be honored if you'd write a preface, forward, epilog or afterward in my "Naked Harbin Ethnography" book manuscript, which I hope to upload for final publishing on March 14th (having begun the publishing process on Valentine's Day). As you may know and see, I've quoted you in the front of my manuscript and on the back cover.
The idea of you writing a forward or afterward is a relatively new development, and will effect pagination, if a forward, but will also increase the excellence of my book overall, so if you can't write this soon, please let me know. Hope to see you at "Digitizing the Grand Tour: a workshop on the worlds and lives of eighteenth-century travelers to Italy" - https://classics.stanford.edu/digitizing-grand-tour-workshop-worlds-and-lives-eighteenth-century-travelers-italy (http://grandtour.stanford.edu/about/) - in the Stanford Humanities'Center, with Scott. Thank you. Best, Scott
Might we all 6 create a Shakespeare-informed film where mice start multiplying and expanding in your apartment, A & K, among the books ... each mouse delivering the lines from each character from all 36 plays by Signor Shakespeare/Shakespeare-san ... (with a little animation / digitization help:)? Poor wee miceys, yet coming to a wonderful home! Perhaps you can write another related story with many Shakespearean voices in it, Ants? :)
Or at least all meet in a Google group video Hangout to enact another scene from MacBeth? Can we figure out how to put the stone wall from Twin Peaks in the above MacBeth film-let from 1999 behind each of us in our rooms differentially?
