Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)

Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

lmao what is it even trying to get at like of course he never tweeted a sonnet, computers didn’t exist?? This is so weird

Moses didn’t tweet the ten commandments either but I’m fairly certain that’s because javascript isn’t supported on stone tablets.


The relationship between Jack and the Doctor and Jack and Rose, there is a love there, and …uh.. y’know, I’m not talking like a sexual love all the time, but there’s a love of ..uh.. of the..the person, a love of ..a really great friend…. I thought, how am I gonna do this, without making it sensational with know .. a full on tongue kiss with Rose, and a full on tongue kiss with the Doc, and I went ‘Bing’ that’s it! Whatever I ..however I kiss Rose, I have to kiss him in exactly the same way. I kiss them basically with the same tenderness, so it was wasn’t like a kiss of ‘Ooh I finally get to kiss them’, it was a kiss of ‘I really really care for you. I love you to..deeply, and I have to say goodbye’. I really loved that moment, I thought it was a touching moment. Not just because I got to kiss Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston.. uhmm.. but uh.. now I’m gonna blush… The fact that it was.. it was a tender moment between them, and it showed a softness, and i hope people get that.

My friend Rudy’s show, Wild Archaeology, got picked up by APTN and the first season is currently in production. Check out the teaser above, it’s gonna be great.


Wild Archaeology takes you across the vast, rugged landscapes of North America to explore aboriginal archaeology and First Nations cultural heritage sites.

The archaeological record of the First Peoples of North America is scattered, fragmented, and could be lost forever. Guided by Dr. Rudy Reimer together with two young Aboriginal hosts, we are taken on a journey and adventure through the mountains, waterways, plains, and Arctic landscapes of Canada’s ancient archaeological record, to discover first-hand the untold story of the original peoples of North America. Twelve thousand years of human inhabitation of this land is vividly brought to life.


Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.
