Romeo Y Juliet

Posted: August 17, 2011 by Keith Stone in literature, romance, Spanish

The Soup had an awesome video last week from some sort of Spanish-language talent show. The video features some kids reenacting Romeo and Juliet. It’s pretty solid until the little girl starts nailing herself in the cabeza with a hammer. And if my memory serves me correct, the Thriller dance took place at the Capulet party. It’s still not as weird as Baz Luhrmann’s version with Leo DiCaprio. I definitely would be more into Shakespeare if more Michael Jackson songs were involved. Why not sneak a little Beat It into Hamlet? This continues to show you that theater would be better if little kids were used as actors for everything.

>Los Trail Blazers?

I was at the gym last night and I looked up at the TV to notice that El Heat were playing Los Spurs, at least according to what the players were wearing. As part of its Noche Latina celebration, the NBA has 12 games scheduled this month with Latin festivities and jerseys. I’ve complained about uniforms before, but come on, El Heat? That’s just ridiculous. According to Altavista, in Spanish, Spurs translates to Estímulos. I’m fine with that. So let’s do it the full way or no way. Just remember, in any language Clipper translates to loser.
