“Doubt that the sun doth move, doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love.” – (Act II, Scene II).”

I have not been reading nearly as much of late because I recently became particularly obsessed with the Canadian television series Slings & Arrows. It’s a comedy/drama unfolding around the New Burbage (spelling?) Theatre and particularly with the plays of Shakespeare and in wonderful Shakespearian style there’s a ghost, a madman, rivalry, revenge, passionate lovers, and even some blood. If you’re looking for something thoughtful and funny to watch: this is it. Unfortunately, there are only three seasons.
