Bignate: There's a much better board than this one. We don't talk about it for fear Nutball or Gizzi or one of those crazies will go there, but you deserve better than this place. Type "p" "079" "dot" "ezboard" "dot" "c o m" "slash" "falternate" "history" "frm7" into your browser. You'll have to engineer it a bit.
My fellow bardolates, so I'm not accused of boardjacking: I love Shakespeare. Hamlet's my favorite.

Jillian, well, I'm in my teens too. And love is blinding, it really is, and think about it: you've got your whole life ahead of you from High School. If you fall truly, deeply in love with someone at the age you've got, well...it hurts, lets say that. It hurts more than anything else. And besides, in these days, what chances are there that you'll find the guy you want to be with forever in High School? Love is an emotion no one can really understand, especially in teens. But as you get older, you'll learn how to handle it and not let it get out of hand. It's not that your mother was forbidding you to fall in love, it was merely that she was cautioning you. I've felt like you have before, and I felt rather fuzzy after my mother told me something of the same. But, I thought about it. And my mom was right, in a perverse sort of way. You don't have to listen to whatever I'm saying to you, but you do have to think about your questions, and what your mother has told you. Good-bye.

My name is Jillian. I'm 14 years old, and i need some answers or at least some understanding from anyone who's had experience or onced felt what i feel right now.
I only saw the movie Romeo and Juliet based on the book. During the film i realised they were only teenagers. At the end of the film, i asked my mother a question, "Do you have to be a certain age to fall in love?"
reluctantly, she said "sort of...yes"
Then she explained to me that teenagers, when we're growing up our hormones start to kick in and such. Then she explained to me that there are different kinds of "love" like you love your mother, your father, your brother's and sister's. And your friends, and then there's a guy or a girl... but i believe she called it "puppy love". When you "THINK" you love someone- you know, you get butterfly's in your stomach. Then after a while you look at the same person and realize you dont love them and get the hot's for someone else. right away i knew it was called a "Crush". LOL i understood that part. but when i asked her "whats the right age" she said "at least an adult."... now i never told her this, but when she was describing this to me, i almost felt hurt. I actually felt like crying. i guess thats what i get for asking but the way she was saying this to me.. it's almost like she was saying "teenagers CAN'T or SHOULDN'T fall in love. Their too young to understand it. Their not mature enough, their not adults." she didn't really say that but from what i herd... it felt like it. "their not adults"... do you have to be an adult to understand that? or FEEL it? why do adults get everything and SEEM to understand everything and we dont? Is that apart of growing up or something? and unless i really dont understand...Thats not fair. It's not fair at all.
If someone once felt this way, i would like to read about it and try to help me at least apart this.

Ok. First of all, I just want to know one thing. How can this blatently chovanistic show of shallowness and poor writing be considered the greatsest love story of all time? This book/play has been the foundation for countless books, but I found that Romeo was a stupid, shallow boy whose affections changed at the drop of a hat, and Juliet was a naive little twit who died for infatuation, and had they had anything between their ears, they would have lived longer. I mean, the ENTIRE thing was totally heinous! Romeo is all gung ho for this one girl, and then, the very next night after he was lamenting the evil twist of fate that made his true love leave him, he sees Juliet and forgets what's-her-face completly. Then when he tells his brother about Juliet, and his brother asks him about the girl he was, not to long ago, head over heals for, he was all, "Oh, her? I would so rather see Jules naked. Did you see the tits on that girl? They sure didn't USED to make them like THAT!". Or, at least, that is what he would have said if Shakespear's language was translated to modern day sleez. And then he picked her up on the most corny pick-up lines this century has EVER seen. Then they DIED. For a fling that they never even got to consumate. Love at first sight is a cute concept. Totally unfounded, but cute. I just wish Billy wouldn't have subjected the world to his view of it, and made thousands of high schoolers writhe in agony as they were made to read such a debotched work. This book is basically about a shallow boy who lusts after a girl entirly too young for him, picks her up on some seriously sad pick-up lines, a naive pubescent little girl who is stupid, and not very well thought out plans made by the idiotic leading to an early demise. By what stretch of the imagination can this shoddy piece of work be considered a classic. I ask you?

I loved the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton version of Taming of the Shrew. It's so comic and Taylor is gorgeous considering it's not one of her younger films. She perfectly fits in the role of the shrew but I thought that the movie was so much about both of them it left out other characters.

A Rock 'n' Roll Opera for the next generation.
West Side story ain't nothin' compared to
Juliet And Romeo.
The parents are the only ones who die at the end.
The curse upon their houses was never spoken.
This time it shall be!
Those that search throughout the ages,
Also LIVE throughout the ages.
Memories that once only remained.
Now become completely FEASABLE.
Past life regression IS something to _believe_ in.
How else can you explain _anything_?
Past lives are for real.
Alyssa and Victor happily proved it.
"Metallica made me do it."
