I love Hamlet, but this just reminds me how often Hamlet is mis-quoted as "Alas Poor Yorick I knew him well" rather than "I knew him, Horatio". And that makes me sad.

Awesome. I have the Nevermore shirt and this will definitely make a good addition to my shirt.woot collection. I love that it looks hand written (or is hand written).

Great design. I also approve of the size and placement. Nice work apeland.

I like this in theory, but this is muddled.

The skull is associated with the "Alas, poor Yorrick" speech. But the text here is the "To be, or not to be" speech.

This and Nevermore go together way too well. Wear this and have someone wear Nevermore and people will think you're...uh...text-as-art freaks?

A very odd place in the middle of the soliloquy to stop. He's only halfway done with explaining why he's wussing out on killing his uncle. Again.

And in the end, his lack of action ensures that EVERYONE DIES.

The moral of this story is, if you have to off someone evil, just do it. Letting them live is never a good plan.

If you REALLY want someone to read your shirt for a long time, put Halle Berry's Oscar acceptance speech on one.

They could have just charged my card and mailed me the shirt without even telling me. It's that good.

My thoughts exactly. Smaller text with the whole thing would have been much more desirable.

And you guys thought I was all Santa fondling, hobo cats, table of element parodies, and juvenile calculator gags. I'm only 90% those things.

Seriously though, thanks. I'm glad to see this up and excited to see it in the flesh. Uh, bone.

Speech basically a mortality + what happens after meditation, therefore having it laced over a skull with all the skull's memento mori gravity is a very nice touch

Now, I would definitely agree that it is the "wrong" speech, "To be..." is, hands down, the most memorable monologue from Hamlet. However, if there is a most memorable item from Hamlet, it would have to be a skull.

Putting the Yorick speech would have been more fitting, yes, but having the suicide one is most fitting for the play as a whole, as it is coupling the most memorable speech with the most memorable prop. Just my opinion, anyways.

Actually, it's quite possible that it could be, though this seems to have more style than Nevermore ever dreamed of having.

Not on a shirt. At least not yet. I have a hard time getting those two to commit.

Exactly. Which is why I find this muddled. It's just taking one item from column A and one from column B and forcing them together.

It's sad that not more people will realize that it is not the entire soliloquy. Then again I'm certain there are just as many people who don't realize that "The Raven" was also abbreviated in it's design. I'm definitely in for one, and can't wait until they make a hoodie of this next year.

Gaming's all about gestures and body movements nowadays. I totally dropped the ball on that prediction.

Looks like someone is aiming for The Raven's throne? This might just be the shirt to do it.
