There's lots of stressful stuff going on LJ at the moment, both in terms of difficult conversations shading into drama, and people posting about stress in their non-LJ lives. Someone posted the following in a community I belong to, and really, a sexy actor reading a sexy Shakespeare sonnet is something that needs to be propagated further. (I guess there might be some Kinsey 0 guys around who don't understand the appeal of Alan Rickman, but a good actor reading Shakespeare is worth something even so.)

Mmmmmm (Requires Flash, but it's one of the few sites that are worth it. And it's technically work-safe if you can get away with playing sound, since Shakespeare is generally exempt from the usual standards of what counts as erotic.)

j4, you might want to pay attention to this bit, if you're not too distracted by Alan Rickman. While I'm posting links, I was searching on my blog's tagline to find out where this journal is linked, and Google came up with some random badgers as a potentially relevant site. And how can anyone resist random badgers?

Alan Rickman = sexy, yo. But the album track I want to hear most is the Ladsmith Black Mambazo. Curiosity!

They obviously let their domain registration lapse, silly people. But the Amazon link works ok.

I'm pretty high on the kinsey scale, but I recognise the merit of a sexy male actor reading shakespeare. I sort of have a weird thing for lickable deep bass voices.

I should have known someone would call me for excluding really really straight guys without mentioning really really gay women... Actually I'm not sure I know any female who's just too lesbian for Alan Rickman, but good point anyway.

And I do like the idea of a "lickable voice", nice phrase.

As a drive-by datum, papersky, who is not a Kinsey 0 guy, doesn't get the appeal of Alan Rickman, on the grounds of not being able to believe he's a sexual being after first seeing him in Dogma.

In so many ways. I was going to hold myself up, and then became very puzzled why his voice was so much better than I remember it, then I realised I had him muddled with someone else...
