Perhaps we need a "language" thread!

Have "standards" fallen?
What's the relevance of (eg) Shakespearean language in today's society?
What defines "good" or "bad" in terms of the written or spoken word?

Default Shakespeare

Having left (Secondary school) with..nothing, I have to admit that as a youth Shakespeare had absolutely no appeal for me at all. The only books I remember reading at that time was, Chopper, Hells angels and Skinhead.
It wasn't until I started working at the Theatre Royal in York that I basically became aware of his existence! I found out that I was entitled to free tickets for the performances (If they weren't fully booked) and by this time I realised that I had better educate myself..for free.
I ended up watching quite a few Shakespeare plays on my own and really getting into them. to be sure, you have to listen and decipher the language and it makes one's brain hurt a lot, but I really started to dig that crazy sh*t, man.

My personal favourite is Richard the III. I just love the treachery, the deceit, lying, monstrous murderous ambition of Dick the sh*t even though he was from around these parts. (Lived in Sheriff Hutton in a big f**k off castle)
Shakespeare did a hatchet job on Richard because old Will was writing for the Tudors and Richard was a Plantagenet. He lived in very dangerous times.

You could say the same of American music, but I didn't mean teenager pop/rock/rap/trash

On the other hand, some Irish music is good

I see the threat of a tanker drivers' strike has been narrowly averted.

The share prices of Jerry-can manufacturers have slumped as a result!!

Noticed on the news:
Bus drivers strike could go ahead having rejected a 900 bonus-methinks they are holding London to ransom-just how much do they want??

Distraught man throws shoe(and misses unfortunately) at Andreas Breivik(the gunman who killed all those Norwegian teens)

ITV are getting scared and accusing the BBC of being jealous of Downton Abbey's success by scheduling a Christmas special of Call the Midwife(their surprise hit in February) at the same time as Downton Abbey's. Isn't only May and a little early to be thinking of Christmas!!

And finally the world is NOT going to end on 21st December this year-apparently some chap in Boston University reckons that the Mayans were wrong with their calculations-so go ahead and book that holiday for 2013-did I not say earlier this year that this was a load of nonsense-I feel vindicated
