Where The Bloody Hell Is Shakespear?

Postby ed atiln on Sat Nov 01, 2008 5:54 pm

This isn't a question just for this week, but in general.

William, you are contractually obligated like every playwritter to update each week right?

And you are each given a day in which to do so right?

And if you can't, you need to give a reason WHY or at least say you're NOT going to right?

And yet you don't.

Why? Is it because you're an arrogant ass or you just don't like to respond to letters for stuff like that? Either way it's annoying and irritating and really stupid to piss off your fans like that. Macbeth is a great play. We want to know what's happening with it each week.

That is all.

I too, miss my weekly dose. Infact, I miss it so much that I've wrote this letter just to express my frustration.

No new Bacon and no new Shakespear.. what is a guy to do?

Keep 'em coming William :)

This is true, but the last few times there was a late update, the plays were great, so I'm going with quality over punctuality.

Leave Shakespear alone. The idea of strict weekly updates is silly anyway. Cut the artists some slack.

Morning,

Like BörgCDLIII I just wrote this letter for this -- however, probably not for the same reasons.

I have no idea about the contractual agreements and obligations that those who reside on the Blackfriars theatre must abide by, but nonetheless that would be between the people who are composed of in the contract.

You say he is required to give a reason -- and again I will state ignorance of said contracts which may or may not be different from artist to artist based on their personal needs -- but is that reason required to be given to us, the readers/viewers?

Unless the artist is paid in such a vast amount that being a fulltime artist on this theatre would make up for all his/her living expenses, I would not expect them to have any total and strict regulation upon his/her creations and their timing. Since, if they are not being paid enough that said creation fulfills all their living expenses they are required to make money elsewhere and live their life while doing this extra monetary acquisition on the side.

I don't know this William Shakespear, and I don't know any of the "artists" in this theatre or anywhere in the England period, but I would not presume I have the right to demand anything of someone when it is free to me and purely the fulfillment of petty entertainment and not something required to live.

Nor would I assume that when I may ask about said entertainment that name-calling may jump the person in to immediately adhering to my beck and call. But then, some do see being called an "arrogant ass" as a compliment.

On another note, perhaps he's dead. Life does happen outside of our little rooms and houses for other people in their rooms and their houses. Or he's had an accident, or someone in his family or friends has had an accident. Or his main job -- if this is not his main job -- has required him to go on a trip and he either thought he'd be home in time to do a play, forgot in all the hussle and bussle of getting ready for a trip, or did not have time to update.

Personally, I think -- because this is what I would do -- he's just methodically making it later so one day, all of a sudden.... it's back on Thor'sday (which is the day I believe recalling is his "day" for having a play up?).

Plus, creative things do sometimes get blocks... writer's block is a very common one. And maybe he's just having trouble figuring out what he wants King Lear to do next. And this may be the case since his last couple were a bit short and to me, not as full and rich as his earlier ones.

Anyway, I'll stop now since I have other stuff to do.

Evening,

I.M.

You only have complaining priveliges if you buy a codpiece. Otherwise you still can complain, though you'll be verbally attacked for it.

Mysterious contracts between artists and Theater aside, I think plays/poems should (within generous reason) be put up when they're ready rather than on some back-breaking schedule... some people like having deadlines to work to, and some people don't. And sometimes deadlines just aren't even realistic for regularly delivering a certain size/quality of production.

Gee golly Shakespear sure is rolling down the PLAYWRITTER'S HILL!!! The last play wasn't quite up to par with the one before it and this update seems to be AT LEAST A DAY LATE. It must be time for SUICIDE.

William Shakespear dead?

Nah... if he's dead, he's dead like Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who was dead for like... 12 weeks, then came back to life and didn't do anything for an other three weeks or something. If this happens again, Francis Bacon will be the only regularly updated playwritter, 'cause Christopher Marlowe with all of its... structure.

I could live with that.


William Shakespear, I demand that you give us a new play when you feel like finishing a play currently being worked on.

But then it'll just wind up being a few days after Monday anyway.

Or he could just quit writting plays and everybody can go fornicate themselves. Even if he had to give the reason for the late updates, it wouldn't have to be to us so much as his bosses.

If he quits doing plays, I swear to god I will finally learn how to make a good dialogue (I have access to an ink well and a quill but I never learned how to use it) but I will make them horrible, and I will do my worst impressions of his characters, and then "make" (by which I mean summon from the pits of hell) new plays similar Shakespear.

Just the THOUGHT of that abomination to god ever being unleashed from the depths of my paper should be enough to make William never want to stop doing plays!

fulgrymm, is that a penguin raping a snail??????? th hell kinda sick bastard are you?!?!?!?!?

anyway, basically w/e his/her name was, was right. while it is nice to have updates, ed does have a life (right???...O.o) and they probably dont pay that much, most of his revenue comes from the merchandising, like they said in Space Balls :P

i mean cmon, look at bonus stage and waterman, when th hell is the last time bonus stage updated, and waterman(which, yes i know doesnt have a timetable, but still has an obligation to readers) didn't update for months, and although a couple months is alright, he didnt make one for like ... im guessing on this but... 7+months
