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

Recommended Posts

So, my eldest, who had such fun making the funny and erudite "Shakespeare Summarized" videos in high school, is now in college, and while time is short, has still managed to tackle the Greek classics that she is studying. I am obviously biased, but I think they are fun and educational.





, is the longest, at 11 minutes, and is completely hand-drawn owing to there being no suitable available movie footage.

The "Shakespeare Summarized" series remains on Youtube to educate and amuse. Edited by Pingo

Congratulations, you made me nearly die of laughter.

 

Like literally, I'm in the hospital right now. Almost dead. Thanks a lot.

 

I will be sending my bill in the mail. Put $500 inside of an envelope and discreetly meet with a man name Pepe at your local Wal Mart dark alley. He will deliver the money to me in full.

 

I will be waiting. These hospital bills won't pay themselves.

The Iliad is really good! The custom art is great. I hope your very talented daughter gives the Odyssey the same awesome treatment!

(I'm about to go and watch the Patrick Stewart "Macbeth" one. Brrr!)

I saw a reference to "Troy Story 2", so here's hoping.

Great scott. I just noticed that kid's review of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" ("At last!  It's not a tragedy!") has over 11,000 views.  That's like two orders of magnitude over her other videos.  Something must have happened there ...

what happned is the kid's review of "the Tempest" is so epic it got shared, like a lot, because it was awesome. Not like The Scottish Play, which was like even more disturbing than the original, and somehow the commentary made it even more creepy

Troy Story <_<::D:

 

It makes so much more sense with chibi characters!

 

Have you or your eldest come across the hypothesis that Troy=Atlantis?

She's pretty awesome. She could market them as a video alternative to Sparknotes. In the current smart phone, tablet, e reader age we live in I'd bet they'd sell like crazy.

      On this day in 1804, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and the rest of their party headed up the Missouri River on a government-sponsored mission to explore the land that had been acquired in the Louisiana Purchase the year before and find a water route to the Pacific Ocean.
      And so began a multi-year adventure.

      I don’t have any links, and I am betting the observances are a bit subdued, but I do note that today is the 75th anniversary of V-E Day, the official end of World War Two in Europe.  Compared to that, getting through our current crisis seems possible...

      It’s been fifty years today.
       
      On Monday, May 4, 1970 at 12:24 PM Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on unarmed students, killing two protesters and two innocent bystanders and wounding nine.
       
      I put up a Twitter thread about it: https://mobile.twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1257343082611253250

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      “The ship was found more than 17,000 feet below the surface, on the floor of the South Pacific Ocean near the Solomon Islands. The USS Hornet is best known for launching the important Doolittle Raid in April of 1942 and its role in winning the Battle of Midway. 
       
      Richard Nowatzki, 95 now, was an 18-year-old gunner on Hornet when enemy planes scored several hits, reports CBS News' Mark Phillips.”
