Well last year we threatened to make this sort of post a tradition and this year we carry out the threat, so break out the vodka and clamato juice (I guess that’s a Canadian thing) and enjoy:
We’ll begin with the usual items from our archives:
- Caesar’s Last Day (our collection of ancient accounts of Caesar’s perforation)
- ‘Assassination Medal’ (a display at the BM last year)
- Caesar’s Assassination @ Youtube (Assorted videos at YouTube of interest)
… and do our traditional highlighting of a couple, e.g.: SCTV’s production of Julius Caesar (interrupted by CCCP1 broadcast … the Julius Caesar resumes at roughly the four minute mark):
… and, of course, no Ides of March would be complete without Wayne And Schuster’s Classic Rinse the Blood Off My Toga:
- How to Celebrate the Ides of March (WikiHow gives suggestions how to ‘celebrate’ the day)
- Who Led the Conspiracy to Assassinate Julius Caesar?(N.S. Gill’s useful background piece)
- Ides of March: What Is It? Why Do We Still Observe It?(National Geographic)
We’ll add some visuals to the compendium this year … via Vicki Alvear Shecter:
… and last night, while looking for a Caesar cookie cutter (mentioned on the Latinteach list), I came across this on the Citrus Report:
… and Somecards always has a nice card to remember the day:
… and as long as we’ve devolved into silliness, we’ll end with something shamelessly swiped from our favourite Trekkie (George Takei) on facebook:
