The Macbeth Death Clock — Good Tickle Brain: A Mostly Shakespeare Webcomic
Lady Macbeth brand floor cleaner. A meme created parodying Lady Macbeth's quote of "Out, damned spot". Lady Macbeth was referring to imagined blood on her hands, and kept washing and washing them. The meme is saying that your floor will be so clean after using the cleaner you will begin to imagine dirty spots. One of the many examples of how Shakespeare and his characters' quotes have entered into modern culture. - Michael Meaney http://cheezburger.com/5966115072

It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. #macbeth, #wordle.net

The witches in 'Macbeth' │ Macbeth has indeed proved itself a cursed work for the cinema: ignored by Kenneth Branagh, tormented by innovators who believe that it needs ‘something extra’, and unyielding even to the talents of Orson Welles in his prime. Only Roman Polanski has made an impression with a movie derived from this play, and that film simply told Shakespeare’s compelling story as well as its cast and crew could devise, with minimal editing, agendas or addition. This new version...
