Tattoo Tuesday- Shakespeare Edition

It’s Tuesday again and you know what that means!  This week is dedicated to The Bard.  I just adore Shakespeare and it was about that time to show it off, with other people’s tattoos lol!  Literary tattoos are my all time favorite because literature means so much to me (I got my Bachelors in Secondary Ed- English).  I feel like literary quotes can not only be deeply personal but also has the ability to share the commonalities of the many people who can relate to that quote/author/book or character.  If you have any literary tattoos (or geeky tattoos in general) let me know so I can feature you, if you’d like in a future Tattoo Tuesday.

What are your favorite Shakespeare plays?  Some of my favorites are Hamlet, Richard III, Othello, Macbeth, A Mid Summer Nights Dream and Romeo and Juliet. If I start listing my favorite Shakespeare sonnets we’d be here all day!  I haven’t read all of his plays, but a good portion of them.  I do have his complete works and plan on getting it to once I get through this comic book binge that I’ve been on, if I ever get through it, which I probably won’t.

Disney’s Upcoming ‘Gnomeo & Juliet’

Disney just released the trailer for their upcoming animated feature Gnomeo & Juliet which looks as cute as it sounds!  It’s based off of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, except with indoor and outdoor warring gnomes who come “alive” when humans are away.  It will be directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and original songs by Elton John and will feature the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt.  I’m going to go out on a limb and say that they won’t end with the double suicide.

According to IMBd its release date is February 11, 2011.

I laughed quite a few times watching this trailer!
