Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth

For more photos from the sites of William’s Shakespeare life, explore the Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Globe Theater and Shakespeare’s Grave location pages.

Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.

From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.

The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).

This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.

Nightmare Dungeons….

So nm dungeons. I’m not ready to put this to the forums, it’s too self revealing, but I’m having a really hard time learning the mechanics for certain fights. I’m definitely improving, though! I can survive Machine Tyrant and Pol 5 now which I really struggled with for a while. I’m just wondering if it makes sense to practice the mechanics on normal/elite?

I’m having a terrible time with:

DW 5 - the bombs. Hate, hate, hate them. If my screen doesn’t show the bombs on DW 3, or the telegraphs for the Ak’ab (it’s not my settings, literally sometimes they just don’t show up), forget those too. I end up in the circle of shame. And feel really stupid, like, “Why can’t I do that?”

Facility core - nope. The lasers. I couldn’t do this in elite either. It’s such a neat dungeon, too!


I might try to coerce a friend into duoing DW with me (the baby normal version lol!) just to see if I can manage those problem mechanics better.

Thank you!! I have two friends that convinced me to try this, but I am happy to have all the help I can get. Once I get started, I’ll find you. :)

See?? I told you this community is amazing!

S and I play on Cerberus. It’s only important if you PVP… which I do. It’s actually fun and set up like games with missions and goals.

 Simon Schubert: In Apnoesie

 via sgustok.org

Simon Schubert (born 1976) is an artist based in Cologne, Germany, his birthplace. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp. Inspired by Surrealism as well as by Samuel Beckett, Schuberts works imagine architectonical settings, common situations and objects, whereas the material he uses are either simple or sophisticated – figurative installations, for which he varied materials - such as hair, feathers, clothing, plaster, wood, graphite, lacquer ,cardboard, lighting elements. Some of these figures are only backs, you can run around them without, however, to recognize a face - often forces itself something between viewer and sculpture, a curtain of hair or about a mirror, the open view is impossible. In both procedures, Schubert approaches to similar issues. Its themes revolve around loneliness, isolation, loss, and resolution, the artist is in search of the infinite in the finite.. Some of his paper foldings entered the West Collection, Oaks, PA, while the Saatchi

THE SECRET WORLD IS ON SALE!
With World of Warcraft in the Pre-Warlords Expansion lull, now would be a great time for you to check out The Secret World!
