VD #1 Champion - The Rey Brothers!

Becoming a VD champion is not a simple task. The title of VD Champion can only be gained through blood, sweat, and tears. One must make the rounds and survive the scrutiny and judgement of others. All this only to pass on the title to the next VD hopeful. This is what VD is. Congratulations Rey Brothers. May you live long, and may the itch of sport be with you for all time.

It Is Time To Vote

The Brothers' Challenge deadline has passed as of October 8, 2006, 12:00AM.

The entries are all exceptional, and I congratulate each set of brothers. The goal of the Brothers' Challenge was to venture beyond the comfort zone to try something new and difficult (a period monologue?!). In that sense, it could not have been more successful.

However, we now hand the final decision over to the community. Vlog Deathmatch is, first and foremost, a competition. The entries in order of submission:Voting ends Sunday, October 15, 12:00 AM. Please cast your vote:

VlogDeathmatch - Tagami - Henry V

Final cut for VlogDeathmatch #1. King Henry V. Act 3 Scene III.

The siege of Harfleur, Normandy, France began 18 August 1415 and ended on 22 September when Harfleur surrendered to the English. Here is Shakespeare's adaptation of these events.

Historical footnote: tomorrow, 8 October, will mark 591 years to the day, when Henry's army left Harfleur on the way to Calais. Crossing the Somme, and hoping to evade the French army, Henry rallied his troops for an overwhelming English victory at the Battle of Agincourt 17 days later on 25 October, Saint Crispin's Day.
