I think Philip's seen this one, I wrote it a couple months ago I think. It has nothing to do with geckos, though...sorry.

The Evil Sonnet Gecko team is happy to bring you Evil Sonnet Gecko's first major production: the Sonnet Man series. In this series (creative idea provided by Philip Goldfarb and Kenna Kettrick) we will follow the forces of good (Sonnet Man and Iamb Girl) vs. the forces of evil (Bad Scansion Woman). The prologue is here provided for criticism.

Sonnet V
Sonnets I-IV have been shown before (if you haven't seen them, go to http://entmoot.com/showpost.php?p=361539&postcount=1) so, to comply with the request to post here, Sonnet V (the Sonnet V rocket! hehe).

Hair is, I say, the basis of all things.
It draws the eye, and also snares the mind.
It can be short and straight, or long in rings
Or any other way that thought can find.
But I myself confess I am partial
To that sweet way in which I find your hair.
O, long and straight, across your head 'twill fall
And when I touch it, I find your soul there.
I nuzzle it, I touch, and I caress
I wrap it 'round my finger, me 'round yours:
It is a sign of your sweet tenderness.
When I touch it, up my heart leaps and soars.
And then I find, I love not just your hair
But all of you, and all of you is fair.

The Sonnet Project
The Sonnet Project is glad to announce the completion of Phase I: The Untitled Phase.
All 265 sonnets the Sonnet Project still retains possession of that were sent to Maggie have now been compiled into a single RTF. This represents a significant accomplishment in the history of the Sonnet Project, which hopes to have Phase II: LiveJournal and Others completed by Spring 2005. Project Director and Sole Employee Philip Goldfarb was quoted as saying "God, that was a lot of sonnets."

Stupid tables that don't reformat correctly into LJ.

Suffice to say, I have a complete breakdown of lines in Twelfth Night from the First Folio as to whether the character speaks prose, verse, or rhyme. And if the line is long (over 10 syllables) or short (under, duh). It was fun.

I would have shown you guys, but it wouldn't transfer.

Shakespeare Statistics
For use in any quantitative analysis of Shakespeare:

Go to Statistical Data, and it will have a table (in German). WordAn is % of words by the character, ReplAn is % of lines. It is cool! It's the basis for my previous analysis of Shakespeare in 10th grade.

Interesting tidbit: Largest lead (% words) is Hamlet, 39%. #2 is Timon of Athens 34%. Shows lead heaviness is no indicator of quality.

I am considering embarking on what I have tentatively entitled "The Troupe Project" to try to determine the size, skill, and so on of the group of actors required by Shakespeare's plays. I did a previous, small scale version of this project back in 10th grade, using numerical data for how many lines the lead had, how many characters had large parts, etc. I think I will expand on this.

Down in the world beneath the actors' stage,
A-skulking and a-lurking, we are there.
Exploring and long searching ev'ry page
Of script for something we'll expose to air
And hand upwards unto the actors' hands.
Some scrap, perhaps, of wisdom (perhaps not)
That we will peddle to the acting bands
So they may not uncover our great plot
Nor ever sieze our geckos evilly.
Our geckos are our own, sonnets as well
And none but those who work dramaturgy
Shall join the Sonnet Gecko of the Fell.
Lest this should seem a merely evil group
Remember: we do help your drama troupe.

I love the idea of a secret underground society formed specifically to inflict dramaturgy upon civilization

:: when you least expect it, they lurk in the shadows
bony fingers clutching at Hamlet::
::they feed on iambic pentameter
they drink the murkiest of inks::
there and then gone::
::gone and then here
they are the GECKOS::


Current Mood: evil

I don't know what I shall post here
But it shall pertain to

or evil

That covers quite a lot.
Is this also open to random writings?

Welcome to the Sonnet Gecko of Evil blog. I have no idea what's going up here. But it might be sonnets. It might have to do with geckos. It might be evil.
It will have to do with Dramaturgy if I post it. Or sonnets. Others may do as they will.

In Dramaturg, Veritas
