Let us never forget Horrible Histories all important Monk song during this time when we question the validity of monk orgies (youtube.com/watch?v…)

I EXPECTED THIS TO BE GREAT ALREADY BECAUSE HORRIBLE HISTORIES IS ALWAYS A GIFT

BUT I DIDN’T EXPECT IT TO BE THAT GREAT

THANK YOU FOR THE VERY RELEVANT SONG

also the same podcast mentioned an anecdote about one pope who was so concerned by  anglo-saxon monks that he issued a rule reminding them that the catholic church was definitely not okay with monks having drunken orgies??? and on the one hand i’m curious and i would like to know how true this story is, but on the other hand, i really don’t want to google “monk orgies”

Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa, and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)

YO, THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING

And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli), is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.

Directed by Jon Favreau. This whole thing feels like a dream.

YESSSS.

I’m listening to The British History Podcast and goddamn, don’t tell me history isn’t hilarious because the Anglo-Saxons boozed so hard that monasteries had an actual protocol for what to do when a monk was so drunk he threw up the Eucharist.

“I remember, um, the director and the dialect coach and Michael just giving me a sheet of paper with a, uh, a monk chant written on it, and I foolishly told them that I’d been in chapel choir, um, at school, so I had to come up with the melody for that chant, um, and then teach it to twenty-four monks. So I was kind of terrified, really.” - George Blagden discussing singing a monk chant at Lindisfarne.
