Subject: Amazing Print Version of the Independent BARDCORE Story
I realize that not everyone on this list shares my fascination with
recent media coverage of Shakespeare porn, but I was amazed to see the
just how much space the LF story was given in the print version of the
London Independent. The front page carried the headline "William
Shakespeare: the New Porn Star?" and referred readers to the front page
of the Wednesday Review section, which is entirely taken up by the
"Bardcore" story plus a huge, original color illustration (perhaps
inspired by the cover of Unspeakable ShaXXXspeares) and a still from A
Midsummer Night's Cream.
I guess August has been a really slow news month.
