Questionnaire from REED

Subject: 	Questionnaire from REED

I just completed a questionnaire sent to me by Sally-Beth MacLean on 
behalf of the REED project. Filling out the questionnaire took me about 
50 seconds, and I would assume the results may indeed be of great use to 
the REED folks. So I would encourage you if you have received the 
questionnaire to complete it right away. AND if you have not been sent 
the questionnaire, I cannot imagine anyone at REED objecting to your 
filling it out:

Joe Egert ask: "can anything be "intended unconsciously?'"

If you have intentions that are unconscious, then you must be conscious 
of them to know that they are unconscious, which makes them conscious. 
Of course, there is good evidence that we are not fully conscious of all 
our intentions and drives.

Joe Egert asks if anything can be intended unconsciously. Perhaps I was 
careless with that phrase, but it seems to me that if you can desire 
something unconsciously, for example, then you might be said to intend 
unconsciously to fulfill that desire. The point is that it is sometimes 
possible, or so I and many others have found, to see the working of an 
author's unconscious in a work, as it is possible to see the working of 
anyone's unconscious in what they say and do.

But let's not keep boring Hardy. He's eager for substantive discussion, 
of the kind the round table will no doubt offer.

Best wishes,
David Bishop

Comment:	RE: SHK 19.0220 G.K Hunter

A very different viewpoint, but no less appreciative. I never met the 
man, but over years of teaching Shakespeare I have come across several 
of his interpretations of particular plays I liked so well that I saved 
them for my students because they were at once sensible, profound and 
readable. They're still on my list.

Theories come and theories go, but understanding and a good prose style 
are always welcome.

I wish I'd known him.

Miller's MacHomer

"Shakespeare's yellow tragedy:
Miller's MacHomer makes Simpsons fans go 'woo-hoo!'"
April 15, 2008
By COLIN MacLEAN
The Edmonton Sun Online

It was the buzz of the Fringe Festival 12 years ago.

Everyone was talking about this Toronto actor, Rick Miller, who had 
television's The Simpsons doing Shakespeare's Macbeth. Not only was it 
funny, but the kid was doing 50 of the Simpsons' voices (55 actually) 
and changing character instantaneously.

The phrase, "Is this a dagger I see before me ... or a pizza," quickly 
became one of the catchphrases oft heard in the beer tent.

Miller's show was something of a makeshift arrangement that began as 
entertainment to fill the hours while on the road with a production of 
the original Scottish play. The 300 or so slides were obviously hand 
drawn and the new project was mostly Miller and a mic.

"It was a comedy sketch that became a Fringe play and has turned into a 
theatrical event," he explains.

FROM TV TO THE STAGE

MacHomer was a hoot. Who could fail to laugh at so outrageous a concept?

Miller provided a dunderhead of a Homer (as Macbeth) and a bang-on 
Marge. The witches were played by the Sea Captain, Moe the Bartender and 
Principal Skinner.

It is a considerably more polished production that opens at the Arts 
Barns tonight and runs through Sunday - as befitting a show that has 
toured relentlessly for 12 years (with more than 600 performances) and 
has graduated from slap-dash Fringe venues to playing opera houses, the 
Kennedy Arts Centre and Massey Hall.
