the guardian imagines what historical figures might look like today. my personal favourite is shakespeare, reincarnated as a shoreditch hipster.
but can you imagine how’d he’d sound a loft party?
"I’m going to subvert the whole, like, narrative ideal by telling you upfront that these two, like, teenagers are going to fall in love and die, and then do it. So there’s no more hiding in the words. Stark, yeah? And then, I think I’ll hide a sonnet in their big scene together, right? It’ll be subversive, because only, you know, people who are up on sonnets will get it…..what? No, she’s thirteen—a little edgy but that’s art, man. Art.”
i am loving hipster shakespeare
This explains so much. Hipster Shakespeare drank too many experimental microbrews one night:
"Will, we need this bit done, buddy. We’ve got rehearsal in ten minutes."
"Shit, I dunno. Uh. Exit."
"Exit, pursued by a bear."
"Will, come on."
"I think I left my LUNGS in that bucket, Robbie, okay? Exit, pursued by a bear. It’s surrealism. Man versus wild. Whatever. Get me a Gatorade and a shit ton of Advil, and maybe I can work out what I’m going to do with the statue."
such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.
It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.
I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.
I wonder if Consensual Manor is anywhere near Manfeels Park…
never not reblog Scarlett calling idiots out on their bullshit
TRUE STORY these phones never die
[[ I believe Sirius was bisexual, and had a big time crush on Lupin, that Lupin was unaware of. Then Lupin admitted his affection towards Tonks to Sirius, Sirius became angry and deeply hurt. Sirius said to Remus that he was too old, too poor, and too dangerous for her, and that’s why Remus always rejected Tonks’ love, though he loved her. Remus always believed Sirius’ reaction was because Sirius was Tonks’ uncle, and never realized it was because of jealousy.]]
