'Tis the season when we should be generous, patient, and jolly. Instead, we often find ourselves cranky, annoyed, and on the verge of throwing a fit. We're frazzled because of how many family arrangements we've had to attend (hint: too many); we're frustrated because we can't find the perfect gift for that Secret Santa at work we don't really know; and we're so, so tired of the lines at literally any store, anywhere. If the adorable Kid President video about being kinder isn't helping to relieve your stress, maybe this video about what it'd be like to be an adult and throw a temper tantrum as if you were a child might. Happy December!
So last week we showed you a video about a really amazing college football play; this week we follow that up with a not-so-great play. During a game between the Florida Gators and Georgia Southern, lineman Jonotthan Harrison and receiver Quinton Dunbar — two Gators players on the same team — failed to go after the opposing team and instead, went after each other. Funny, sure, but this won't probably won't go down in the record books for anything other than being kind of embarrassing. Enjoy.
We hope everyone has a fantastic day celebrating with loved ones. See you tomorrow!
I am a huge fan of Kid President, the adorable little kid who once interviewed Beyonce. Obviously, he can appreciate Beyonce, but more than that, he helps to make meaningful videos. This video is the perfect pre-Thanksgiving watch because it reminds us to be kinder to those around us. I love it. What do you think?
Shakespeare is having a moment. Again. Given that William Shakespeare is arguably the most memorable playwright of all time, it's no surprise that his shows continue not just to be shared and acted in schools, but also on the Broadway stage.
This year, four of Shakespeare's plays made it to the Great White Way — and one was so enthralling, it was worthy of two different renditions.
While some of the Shakespeare shows were modernized (Romeo and Juliet), others stay as close to the original 17th century performances as possible (Richard III/Twelfth Night). Here's a breakdown of the shows that helped make 2013 the "Year of Shakespeare" on Broadway.
Alan Cumming's Macbeth
Starring: Alan Cumming
Opening Date: April 21, 2013
Closing Date: July 14, 2013
About This Rendition: Performed at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, Alan Cumming's one-man rendition of Macbeth was called a "tour-de-force that redefines the term" by Associated Press. The critically acclaimed show featured Cumming playing each role in Macbeth, but with a twist: the entire thing took place in an asylum ward.
