I'm watching Bio Dome on one of the movie channels, it's TCM I think, but as you guys prolly know, Stephen Baldwin's character, Doyle, has dreadies in the movie. I was trying to get a good look at them, and they look like twists, but some of them look knotted up too. But anyway I love this movie and his dreadies/twist things look cool.
I was reading Hamlet a few months ago and noticed a line that has been left out of every production I have seen (I think I've seen Hamlet about 5-6 times so far..). When King Hamlet's ghost appears before Prince Hamlet in act 1 scene 5 (if I remember correctly), he tells young Hamlet that he is "forbidden to tell the secrets of his prison-house", but that he could unfold a tale that would "harrow up his soul," and "make his knotted and combinèd locks part and stand on end."
....knotted combinèd locks? Yup, Shakespeare's Prince Hamlet had dreads! Woo!
I've been meaning to post that here forever, but I keep forgetting. My dreads turn 12 weeks old tomorrow :). I hadn't noticed how much they changed until I saw a post here a couple of days ago with 3-month old dreads. I looked at them and said "aww, man, mine don't look that good yet!", but then I went over to the mirror and realized that they DID. Aww, they grow up so fast <3
( Collapse ) I went to my first live drum & bass gig in NY on Thursday night and there were so many beautiful dreadlocked people there! There were more dreads-per-square-inch than any other place I've been. Everyone was amazingly friendly and joyous. Each person danced to their own beat and their dreadies grooved along in tentacle joy.
