Some times, when looking at other people’s twitter accounts, I look at the photos they have posted. More than profile summaries and tweets, they provide a window into their twitter soul. A tapestry of obsessions, it works better than a Rorschach test.
In no particular order, these are some of the photos I have posted on twitter. For a bit of silliness and as a game, can you match the description to the photo? A little bit like Only Connect,but more difficult and with added insght to my obsessions. (No prizes for identifying the overall theme, it can’t be theatre surely?)
Here is the list:
Three early stage roles for David Tennant
One panel discussion about Harold Pinter
One made up production of a Shakespearean play
A director talks about Edward II on twitter
The Chart of Lust from Grazia (but only because it includes a prominent playwright)
Simon Russell Beale doing Shakepseare
Propeller in (foyer) action
Promotional material for a new musical
Three Ben Whishaws (with a sprinkling of Judi Dench)
A photo from a british musical in New York
A poster for an americal musical in London
A ticket for a much anticipared RSC production in Stratford
Two items for Jez Butterworth’s Mojo playing in London from end of October
Silver Linings Playbook poster
And that’s the end of the list. Can we draw any conclusions? I think about theatre too much, but we knew that already. Hamlet, Shakespeare, musicals, David Tennant, Simon Russell Beale, old productions, press and marketing items are often present. The photos broadly match my Tags cloud.
And this is just an excuse to revisit old photos on a lazy Saturday afternoon. For the full list and captions, visit my twitter account.
