ADVICE SCENE

       

"You are a fishmonger!"

"Though this be madness, yet there is method in it!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

from Macbeth, Act 5, scene 5:

MACBETH

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of
sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Ethan Hawke as Hamlet

Today's Quotes of the Day:

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.     --John Locke, philosopher (1632-1704)

and

It makes sense to make a map of places where you can get eaten by bears, or where there's a bottomless pit, but when you get into making maps of your mind, you're basically wasting your time.

Today's Allusion:

let the cat out of the bag/buy a pig in a poke

Today's Words of the Day:

progeny

propensity

phlegmatic

exegesis

germane

Today's Quote of the Day:

"I wanted you to see what courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a  man with a gun in his hand.  It's when you know you're licked before you  begin but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what."

from To Kill A Mockingbird  by Harper Lee

Today's Allusion:

Lot's wife/pillar of salt

Today's Words of the Day:

HAMLET WORD OF THE DAY:

Pyrrhic victory

(PIR-ik VIK-tuh-ree) See  Hamlet Act 2 pp. 35-53

noun A victory won at too great a cost. [After Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, who suffered staggering losses in defeating the Romans.]

"With lawsuits multiplying like crazy and mutual accusations of stealing the election spiralling out of control, almost any result now looks as if it will be a Pyrrhic victory."United States: Whatever Will They Think of Next?; The Economist (London, UK); Nov 25, 2000.

"One more such victory and we are lost," exclaimed Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, as he described his costly success in the battle of Asculum in Apulia. With those words he gave us a metaphor to refer to a victory so costly that it's barely better than defeat. If we talk to those who lost their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and other loved ones in war, every victory is a Pyrrhic victory. A war is perhaps the only occasion when killing a person is not just accepted but rewarded. If only we could learn to fight wars only with words.

The Lauren character is a recurring feature on the *Catherine Tate Show*. We've only ever seen it youtube clips.  If you like this one, the "Lauren French Exam" is also very funny.  HERE'S THE CLIP:

  2.   ASSIGNMENT F3 #1-4:   #1-2:  "Kubla Khan": Read, take notes, and do SQ's 1-9 p. 623 (see gray Frankenstein HW packet) 

    For an "interesting" interpretation of "Kubla Khan," click here: http://www.sesk.org/Aesthetics/Literature/English/Romantics/Coleridge/KublaKhan.htm

  3. Rime of the Ancient Mariner Project (20 pts) CLICK HERE for a copy.

    Choose one of the project options below:

    ·     Captain’s Log: record an account of the frightful events of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner from the captain’s point of view. I encourage you to record this using audio-visual technology; however, a written account is also acceptable.  Be creative and fill in the gaps . . . why did you kill the albatross, what was your relationship like with your crew before and after the incident, what was going through your mind during this whole ordeal? (2-3 minutes or 1 page typed)

    ·     Newspaper Article: develop a news article complete with headline and photographs describing some event relating to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.  Be creative, perhaps you want to spin it as a human-interest story or create an obituary for the poor, innocent albatross—the choice is yours. (1 page typed . . . include photos, captions, and headlines)

    ·     Storyboard: create a series of scenes depicting key events from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. (basically, tell the story using pictures).  You could even create a newspaper-style cartoon.  Again, be creative with how you choose to portray the story.  (Include at least 4 frames . . . use texts and illustrations)

    ·     Art Showcase: create a collage, mural, or some other artistic representation of the story.  Make sure to include a brief explanation of your art project (1-2 paragraphs), discussing its content, meaning, and message. 

    ·     Cinematic Recreation: film your own adaptation of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.  If you chose this option you need not film the story in its entirety, however, you should capture some of the poem’s main ideas in your video. As the director you may choose a new setting/context for the story as long as it relates in some way to Ancient Mariner.  Again, be creative!
