Everyone Hates Anonymity

I just read a rather witty and concise article about the new Shakespeare authorship intrigue film, Anonymous: Wouldn’t It Be Cool if Shakespeare Wasn’t Shakespeare? from The New York Times Magazine. It’s full of well-crafted, biting sarcasm–the best kind, in my opinion.

Ignoring the missed opportunity to use (correctly, thus reiterating the article’s point) the subjunctive mood in the title, I’m not sure quite what this says about the 2009 Supreme Court decision, but somehow I still want to see the movie. Just for kicks.

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English degree-holder, a southern liberal, and an adult amateur equestrian who doesn’t match her saddle pads. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!
