Iago's Little Chunk of the Galaxy
Why the name Iago?
Some may call me sick. I have a tendency to root for the villians in Shakespere's tragedies. My reasoning goes thus: It's a tragedy, right? That means all of the heroes will die excrutiating deaths, and then the surrvivors commit suicide. Even the bad guy dies. Why should he? If everyone else loses in the story, I say somebody should come out with a gain. Take the case of Iago, the said villain of Othello, The Moor of Venice. He's your average disgruntled postal worker, with a Shakesperean twist. His gripe is that some crazy Moor named Othello came along and stole his rightful position as a leader in the army. Furthermore, the first thing Othello did in his new position was to appoint some bum called Cassio to second in command. This is altogether too much for Iago, who has a wife and a growing ego to support. Needless to say all of the so called good characters in the novel are mindless buffoons, and are subject to Iago's diabolical whims. Iago takes advantage of the complete idiocy of everyone else, and just about has it made when good ol' Billy Shakes ran out of ink and decided to kill everybody. I think that at least Iago should come away with something, but that isn't going to happen any time soon. It is because of this that I have decided to take his name upon myself, and redeem his pointless existance.

A Little Bit About Me
When not casting a critical eye to the so called "classics" of literature, I spend most of my life attending high school in Montana. I am 16 years old and am in my senior ( final ) year of obligatory schooling. (Seems a bit young? It is, but we won't go there just yet...) I enjoy messing around with just about everything that is electronic. I also play the guitars (steel accoustic, nilon accoustic, electric, and bass) and have an extensive calssical reperatorie. I like watching tv and playing video games.
O sic sic omnes!
