i had a few requests come through for violet baudelaire from a series of unfortunate events. glad i did, because all the baudelaire children are pretty awesome, maybe i’ll do klaus soon. anyways, all the baudelaire kids have special talents…in the case of violet she could invent anything and essentially solve any problem, awesome. her parents were adventurers so you can imagine that she grew up in a fun household and was quite the interesting character. of course, the stories details the kid’s battle with the evil count olaf who will stop at nothing to get at their orphaned inheritance. i recommend.

macbeth continues to fascinate me years and years after reading it, i suppose that’s the mark of a great work. so may i present the three witches. there are two reasons why i still think of it often, the first being my teacher who assigned it to us in high school was so into literature and teaching. she really got us excited about books and that’s quite a feat considering most of us were hyper-privileged and under-enthused. the second is the work itself, i love the story and all the manipulation. you can tear macbeth apart over and over and arrive at a different conclusion each time. who really started all the trouble that night? was it the witches for informing macbeth he would be king? was it lady macbeth for pushing him to commit the crime? was it macbeth himself? it’s almost too fun to think about. i like to think it was the witches though, the personification of evil. plus, they’re the original mean girls…and who doesn’t love the idea of three women roaming the earth intent on disrupting the lives of mortals? everybody loves it, perhaps that’s why it’s pops up in so much work across the world. oh my god, macbeth is so good, must read again.
