Nah. Just more convenient. Can play the videogames at the same time, or listen with my eyes closed and chillaxin.

Othello unchained, by Quentin Tarantino:

In a world,

where people take an extremely long time to say things:

"For, sir,
It is as sure as you are Roderigo,
Were I the Moor I would not be Iago.
In following him, I follow but myself.
Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
But seeming so for my particular end.
For when my outward action doth demonstrate
The native act and figure of my heart
In complement extern, 'tis not long after
But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at. I am not what I am."

Missed out a couple of lines but still great!

The dramatization was impeccable! I loved it! There are a few lines cut out here and there that shouldn't be in my opinion, as every line is important to the literary intention of the writer, and few if not any more so than Shakespeare. Despite this, these omitted lines did not inhibit my understanding of the tragedy in any shape or form.
