Does anyone still have an .mp3 of the show's glorious theme tune? I lost it when I last moved computers.

Subject:Prince of Cats, or the Merry Adventures of Kit, Will, and a Cat from Hell
Security:Public

Some of you may know that I recently had an assignment to write a 10-minute play for a Dramaturgy class. Never having written a play before in my LIFE, I was desperate for an idea, ANY idea of where to start.

So, where better than with a Gay Atheist Spy?

I scoured through this community, looking for just the right episode for inspiration, and decided to write the Merry Adventure of Wriostheley's Cat. Take it for what you will, and I thank you ALL for the amazing ideas we've all come up with here. I think I stole a joke or two from comments here as I was rereading everything I could find. Also, you'll note that I played willy nilly with the historical accuracy- I didn't pay too much attention to the timeline, as it's not like Will and Kit were every ACTUALLY roommates in the first place, after all.

I hope you enjoy. :)

I just want say how much I love the icons, the episodes and the pics! This summer, I saw Honan' s "Christopher Marlowe: Poet and Spy" and bought it since I'm a sucker for anything about Kit, but especially with a title like that - you can see whay I gravitated to this community. I've read "The Reckoning" and delved a bit into Shakespeare, Elizabeth, Mary Queen of Scots and the Elizabethan Secret Service, but I'm no expert. Still,  I might be tempted to try to write an episode....

So,let us do this in an organized and documentable fashion. I hereby volunteer to be part of the writing team for Episode 1. Who else? At least one person who can handle plotting and structure is needed, because that's not me.

Oh no! You lot aren't getting out of it that easily! I demand episodes! And if what it takes to get them is collating all the ideas so far into some kind of order, THEN THAT'S WHAT I'M GONNA DO!

Spoilers for Season One...Collapse )

Suggestions? Comments? Volunteers to write the first episode?

I've only just joined this community, having been introduced to the wonders of Marlowe: Gay Atheist Spy! (at least the show, not the man, I've loved him for a long time) by ataniell93 and wanted to mention my utter adoration and eagerness to work on the series, too.

And I really, really want to find the themesong, but I can't get a yousendit link to work. *puppydogeyes*

Most of the links so far lead to nowhere, but I wanted to get people's approval and A-OK before going any further.

So, whadday'allthink?

Sorry mostly everything on the front page is bullshit, but I wanted to check it was all working, and to do that I needed enough text to make the div layer overflow. I know also that this show already has a site- but hey, no band, television series or cartoon is complete without at least one obsessive fansite to track its every move.

The link on the info page to the theme song leads ultimately to a dead YSI link; does anyone have it to repost or a more permanent link for downloading?

Hello! I'm new here (if you don't mind my jumping in, that is)...this certainly does look interesting. Haven't had time to read all the entries to catch myself up, but if it deals with Kit in any way at all, I'm typically very, very happy, so I figure I can always do that eventually. *smile* I'm not as well learned about Kit as I'd like to be, but there's always hope for the future.

My name's Rider (or at least, it's shorter to write than my username).

To present my credentials for entering this group: are any of you familiar with the online RPG deadmentalking..? If not, it's an RP open to any historical character that definitely existed and is at least a few years dead, and is as slashy as you'd like. As you might have guessed by my membership here, I play our dear gay atheistic spy. And yes, Marlowe hits on Shakespeare as often as he's around. (We don't have a Kyd, as far as I know. Anyone here interested? If so, do tell me, I want to be there when you post your intro message...)

Just out of curiosity, how many people here are Marlovians? I'm not a fanatic for either side of the debate, but I'm always curious to know what people think...

The image in the following link was not made by me but I thought the community might enjoy seeing him in yet another disguise. We have heard of him. http://www.osmond-riba.org/lis/Graphics/PirateKit.jpg Tending sheep was merely a hobby, as it turns out.

Hey, everyone. 'Tis I, your friendly neighborhood mod. It's been pretty silent around here lately. I know a lot of us are in school, so I'm hoping things will pick back up again around here over the summer. Any suggestions on how we could get jump-started?

In the meantime, I direct your attention to a very silly gayatheistspy-themed conversation going on in my LJ. In which Marlowe beats up Catholic sheep, or possibly gets immolated in a dress. :o)

I was tinkering around with some of poisoninjest's icons and came up with a community banner. The quality's poor--sorry, it was only Word and Microsoft Paint--but I thought I'd share. No need to credit, feel free to tinker with it. :o) Cheers!

Question:

As a young man, did Richard III know he was going to be king?

Security:Public

Our current members and I of the Broward Atheists Meetup (www.browardatheists.com and in www.meetup.com) welcome all interested in atheism, theism, freethought, agnosticism, humanism, transhumanism, state and church seperation (otherwise known as seperation of sturch), and related topics to our Tuesday meetings after 6:30pm. The www.browardatheists.com website has details on our venue, it is currently a pub, but will change when more members are acquired. We're already bulging at the seams with an average attendance of about twelve. No matter your age, beliefs, or preferences, we'd like to hear your opinion. Even the sternest Christians may come and present their thoughts, because if you really believe we're going to hell, we sure don't want to be wrong about the subject, haha, but most members are pretty confident about their atheism and agnosticism. I mention the invitation only to be open-minded. Anyways, we usually discuss religion, politics, philosophy, etc. but do not feel obligated to have to order anything despite it being a pub. There is no membership fee either, it is an informal event so far seeing how we have too few to be more organized, but we'd like to be! And we'd like to have enough people to start some activism and be as productive as possible.

Aside from the weekly Tuesday meetings, there are fun events such as campfires and beach barbeques scheduled. We sure would like to cooperate with other groups and more members to voice the rights and freedoms we and others deserve regardless of our beliefs and with your ideas and help, this can be made possible. The current goal is to eliminate the negative stigma attached to our labels by altruism and stoicism such as scholarships and good deeds. E-mail me with any questions or better yet, any one else you can get in contact with from the website to get a clearer understanding of who and what we are. We turn no one down and encourage debate, skepticism, and reason. The meetings are definitely worthwhile and interesting or else I wouldn't waste the little free time I have as a college student to invite any one else to come join the experience. If you are in the area and find the time inconvenient with your busy schedule, no hard feelings will be had, but at least sign the guestbook so we can know you support us and wish you could come. :-)

No show is complete without a character who's into inventing things (maybe Dr. John Dee?). We could put in such a character, and have him introduce Marlowe to a new game he's just invented: scrabble.

Naturally, Marlowe would enjoy this game, but it would be just ASKING for fights over whether any given word counts. Besides the obvious spelling errors ("it's spelled reckonyng, you oaf! You can't add an e at the end!" "The hell I can't!"), maybe he and Shakespeare could have a huge fight over whether "shoen" is a still a word, or if that plural form is dead.

I couldn't resist the urge to Photoshop an ad for what I know will be my favorite episode of Marlowe: Gay Atheist Spy.

It was the evilest cat picture I could find. Actually, it's kind of freaking me out. *g*

Thought I'd put in a link to this very interesting essay, Marlowe's Sudden and Fearful End, which is about as a complete a report of Marlowe's death (and the contemporary reactions to it), as you'll find. It doesn't get into the authorship issue, but it does outline the reasons to suspect that the murder in Deptford didn't really happen.

The author, Peter Farey, is more-or-less a Marlovian, but he's really very well liked, even by Stratfordians, for making every effort towards responsible scholarship. As one person put it, "he's deluded, but honest." More info on him can be found here . I know from experience that Farey doesn't claim to "believe" that Marlowe survived, but thinks one can make a strong case for it, which is probably fair enough.
