Paging Danny Boyle

Second season of Slings and Arrows playing as background in my sewing room. Geoffrey has just proposed his idea to show Macbeth as vulnerable and human by having Lady M undress him when he gets home from battle. Oliver sputters indignantly that "Macbeth is a monster! Do we ever see Frankenstein with his dick out?"

Well, actually, Oliver, now that you mention it... :-D

And, y'know, what it said about the newborn Creature is not that far off from the same idea. Of course, that's the intelligent response. The immediate response was to imagine Oliver's face had he been seated where I was in the stalls, with Jonny Lee Miller's junk swinging in the breeze not a dozen feet away.

(For the record, BTW, for all that Henry desperately needed some kind of kick in the pants, and heaven knows I love Geoffrey to pieces and bits, I still want to BEAT HIM SENSELESS for how he ended up going about it.)

Oh, Oliver, Macbeth is not a monster. His deeds are evil, but not monstrously evil. Get a sense of proportion.

=imagine Oliver's face had he been seated where I was in the stalls, with Jonny Lee Miller's junk swinging in the breeze not a dozen feet away=

Oh. Um, yes.

He's working on it. He just had to be dead for quite a while first. :-D

Oh,so funny! I can't wait to see the NTL re-broadcast of Frankenstein this summer.

I want to see it again, but I'm always going to be disappointed that they put loincloths on everyone for the simulcast.
