“Scholars Discover 23 Blank Pages That May As Well Be Lost Samuel Beckett Play”

This article from The Onion – Americas Finest Newresource is quite old but it always makes me laugh out load. That Beckett frustrates me a little bit could be the understatement of the year, and I could probably make more sense out of 23 blank pages than I can of Waiting for Godot. Hopefully, seeing it staged will ease my confusion a little bit so I have booked tickets to go and see the play in April. Thinking about it, it is quite probable that it has the opposite effect. But never mind, to be honest, the main reason I wanted to go was to see Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen…can’t wait!

This is brilliant….and addictive.

TED – Technology, Education and Design. Loads of speeches from the conferences they hold every year are available online. They are brief and concise but so intelligent, engaging and inspiring. And quite funny.
