Hello, everyone! This is Tammy’s assistant, Jae, here to announce something the two of us started kicking around as an idea when we saw how many followers Tammy was getting.
SO, HERE IT IS:
3,000 Follower Giveaway Celebration!
To celebrate passing this tumblr landmark, we’re going to be giving away 5 signed copies of her books (one for each winner). Here’s how it’s going to work.
1. There will be 5 winners total. Each will get to pick ONE of Tammy’s currently-published novels for signature.
2. You MUST be following her blog in order to participate. After all, this is a thank-you to all of those who pushed us over the 3,000 mark.
3. Each individual is allowed TWO entries, NO MORE. That’s a reblog and a like.
4. Entries will be allowed until March 25th, and this post will be periodically reblogged on Tammy’s tumblr until then to give everyone a fair shake.
On the 26th, I’ll pick 5 usernames at random and message the winners. This means you have to have your ask boxes open at that time. Winners will need to get back to me within a week with the book that they want signed and where I should send it. If I don’t receive a message from a winner within that week, or I can’t reach them via ask, I’ll pick someone new. Once I’ve heard from everyone, we’ll post a public congratulation to let everyone know that the contest is over.
Good luck, and thank you all for being here!

you’re in luck! you don’t even need bootlegs thanks to the lovely company at shakespeare’s globe. their shows are all staged in more or less the early modern style, but it just adds to the fantastic aesthetic. if it’s post-2000 stage productions you’re after, i highly recommend them all.
if you use torrents, then here are links to the following productions of shakespeare’s plays at the globe (there might be more dvds available but these were all i could find):
all’s well that ends well (comedy)
as you like it (comedy)
love’s labours lost (comedy)
much ado about nothing (comedy)
merry wives of windsor (comedy)
twelfth night (comedy)
taming of the shrew (comedy)
and this is a production of doctor faustus put on by the globe. it’s marlowe, not shakespeare, but a fantastic play and if you enjoy these productions then you’ll love it just as much.
these are misc stage productions put on by other companies:
julius caesar (history) (royal shakespeare company)
the tempest (tragedy) (stratford theatre)
macbeth (tragedy) (royal shakespeare company)
hamlet (tragedy) (royal shakespeare company)
coriolanus (tragedy) (national theatre live)
much ado about nothing (comedy) (wyndham’s theatre)
speaking of hamlet, some lovely person put together this compilation post a while ago, so there are various productions of hamlet there.
and the duchess of malfi is webster, not shakespeare, but it’s such a fantastic play and he’s another early modern writer. so again, recommended. this production was done at the greenwich theatre.
and i feel like im forgetting some really obvious recent productions, but here’s the collection i devised off the top of my head. as far as movie versions go, if you are interested in those as well, there have been some great productions in the last few years. the hollow crown series (bbc) covered one of the history quartets (richard ii, henry iv part one, henry iv part two, henry v) and i greatly enjoyed all four films (richard ii was my personal fave though). there was also a romeo and juliet movie recently, though they edited a lot of shakespeare’s text so if you’re here for that then i wouldn’t recommend it. in 2011 there was a film version of much ado about nothing which was particularly popular (a joss whedon production with many familiar faces).
there are, of course, countless classics as well. if you’re interested, some of my personal favourite shakespeare movies are richard iii (laurence olivier), much ado about nothing (kenneth branagh), henry v (kenneth branagh), titus (a julie taymor production starring anthony hopkins as titus andronicus - a SUPERB adaptation, unforgettable), romeo and juliet (1968, directed by zeffirelli), hamlet (kenneth branagh - not necessarily a fan of EVERYTHING in this version, but GOD it is a FEAST for the eyes, and when the casting is right it is sooooo right. def worth checking out).
and GOD im sure there are many, many, many more BUT I’VE GONE FOR WAY TOO LONG SO THERE. GO FORTH. if you don’t use torrents, then i recommend a quick google on how to do so. if you can’t, then sorry! but at least you know these copies exist and can look for them elsewhere. and maybe someone else searching for shows can use these.
"No homo" cries the team at the dig site. The head archaeologist sinks to his knees, sobbing. He has dedicated his entire career to the pursuit of homo habilis, an important part of the hominid evolutionary line. All his work led up to this archaeological dig site. But now, his whole life has been for nothing. There is no homo….there is only Australopithecus.
I read this to a group of archaeologists and they completely lost their shit
