"Shakespeare Summarized" kid tackles classics of world mythology & literature

Recommended Posts

Now she's moved on to the Chinese classics. The entire "Journey to the West" is too massive for one video, but here's the first part of the first part, the story of the Monkey King:

 

 

Whoops! How do I de-embed this and make it a link?

She and her buddy have now got a Channel Trailer:

Just catching up on these now. They're SO GOOOOOOOD!!!!! :wub:

 

I read a simplified, translated into Modern English version of Beowulf in 6th grade, so the story actually stuck with me. Your daughter's rendition of it was both informative and highly entertaining (as well as most amusing). She has such a wonderful sense of how to turn a good phrase, it's fantastic. Her animations are awesome as well! :)

 

I've encountered a couple different versions of Journey to the West, both in film, so I actually learned a ton from her video. Very cool! (also, even funnier than the previous one!) 

 

I've read a few Poe stories, but now I want to go read all of them. She does such a fantastic job of summarizing plots in a way that's both amusing and highly accurate. Which just goes to show how deeply she understands her source material. Which is AWESOME. ::D:

 

Also, I think it's neat she's got a buddy in on it too. Even more fun! ^_^

 

I look forward to the next one!!! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

That makes you biased; it doesn't make you wrong.

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

 

That gigantic stack of "Journey to the West" books in "The Monkey King" is made up of our family copies.  I recognize the dings along the spines.

      Hello, compatriots! I am a college student in desperate need of useful sources of information! I have taken upon the task of writing my final project in my composition class on the history of wargaming and tabletop miniatures. Painting miniatures is potentially my biggest hobby, and it seemed like an excellent topic for a paper. I need to do a 12-minute elevator pitch of my paper next Friday, and the paper itself must be 2,500 words and is due at the end of the semester (May 5th).
       
      The issue is, I'm having difficulty finding sources that I can cite. I'd go hunting for books, but I don't have a whole ton of time to wait for shipping. So, I've come to you folks. If there are any sources that you are aware of that will help me in my journey, please post them here. If there are important people I could potentially email and ask questions of, that would be cool, too. I already have some info with W. Britain beginning production of hollow lead toy soldiers and the publication of H.G. Welles' "Little Wars". I'd like to know more about when and how painting miniatures for wargames became a hobby of its own, major changes in the miniature manufacturing industry, key players, where we are today, etc.

      I'm painting Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, and came across an odd situation. On his left side, possibly hanging from his belt, there is an approximately trapezoidal shape that has three tassels hanging from it. I've seen things like it before, being an SCA member and fairly familiar with historical clothing, but I have no idea what it's called or if it serves any use beyond decoration.
       
      I searched Google images, but that was no help. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? For your reference, here is the best picture I could locate of the item:
      Most people seem to paint it the same color as his coat, but I like to be as accurate as I can in my painting and would like more information on this interesting object.

      James L. Sutter, co-creator of Pathfinder and Starfinder, finds maps of New Orleans highly unlikely and unconvincing. (Warning, some cuss words.)

      I skipped some of the other information. Stretch goal, game play, unlocks.
       
      Chibis!

      Hi all,
      just finished this one last night, hope you enjoy! Another really nice figure from Chris Fitzpatrick and his company Crocodile Games.  This was from their most recent Kickstarter if I'm not mistaken.
       
      Thanks for looking!
