  1. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Ha! That's a pretty spot on assessment.
  2. April Reads: What, fool, are you reading?!?

    Decided to finally read some Margaret Atwood. I've got The Handmaiden's Tale and The Penelopiad on the docket for this month.
  3. Football - #WengerOut

    Since I now find my Gunners sitting 7th in the table, I've decided to give up on this PL season. Luckily I've got Atlanta United to keep me company. Unfortunately the officiating in MLS is horrendous and we've been the victim of 2 extremely dodgy red cards in the last 2 matches. Side note; how bout that David Villa goal from 53 yards out!?
  4. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Just finished re-watching a Hulu Original called Moone Boy. Really hilarious and well written. It's about a boy and his imaginary friend growing up in a small Irish town in the late '80s/early '90s. Chris O'Dowd created the show and plays the imaginary friend. Anybody else out there seen this show?
  5. Football - #WengerOut

    Such a tough situation having to play right after yesterday's events. That being said, Dortmund and Monaco are fun to watch. Oh and in case you haven't heard, that kid Mbappe is for realz
  6. Been diggin this stuff since I watch the documentary about them. The current iteration recently played in my city and it was pretty fuckin fantastic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcRhnSEwVlo The band is Death. They were probably the first true punk group ever. And they happened to be from Detroit and black. Almost got the deal they deserved, but the name of the band halted the process and they missed the chance to be the spearhead for a new genre. Others took their place and punk became a thing and made waves. The above is an original recording of what could have been.

    Agreed! In the words of the bodhisattva that is Ron Swanson, "Son, there is no wrong way to consume alcohol."

    I'll start by saying I've been a fan/student of bourbon for a good ten years. I started getting into other whiskey shortly after, and became a huge fan of the Scottish stuff. I tried lots of different blends and single malts from various regions and I fell in love with Lagavulin 16. There is a slight caveat though; I only became aware of that particular whiskey (and had a predisposition to liking it) because of one Ron Swanson of Parks and Rec fame. And for that I am ashamed and at the same time grateful.
  9. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Whew! That makes so much more sense
  10. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Haven't seen Life, but have only heard that it is very generic as you suspect. Just curious, what do mean when you say "I'm a sucker for space stuff (which is why I'm not watching The Expanse?)
  11. Who tyrion will choose?

    I don't have the text to say yay or nay, but I have to think Jamie at most thinks Sansa was perhaps a small part of the incident solely based on her marriage to Tyrion. But really, he seems to barely consider her at all. Except for his growing sense of honor and duty when he sends Brienne on her quest. But that was less about Sansa as a person and more about his character development.
  12. Yo was that a dragon?!?

    Are there instances of Bran's experience through Summer's eyes that are/could be future events other than this? I'm not currently looking through the text, but it seems they sometimes happen sequentially out of order, but within the context of the story that's just because we see what Summer sees before we read about it through other characters' eyes for narrative reasons. Could be mistaken. So if you have examples handy please share!
  13. Comics XIII

    Thanks for the heads up. I generally feel pretty good about blasphemy, so I'm looking forward to reading it. Also, just looked up Tony Moore (like I said, I'm new to the comic game) and I'm sold based on that alone!
  14. Who tyrion will choose?

    Ah yes, you're right about Cersei and the rest of the establishment. And you're welcome
  15. Who tyrion will choose?

    I always got the impression he was trying to convince Aegon to head West for two reasons: First as a big "fuck you" to Jon Connington and his plans. And second as a way to make sure Aegon saw his worth just in case. But, I think once he realized he could make his way to Dany he saw that as a much better option. He is well aware of the military power of dragons and sees that as the best way to take Casterly Rock for himself finally. As far as what happens later on, I can't see him changing sides if he does indeed get the Rock. Even if he has to continue to be subservient to Dany, he seems to want his birthright more than any grander power and is actually happy with the potential role as a trusted advisor. However, if Dany were to fall he would have to ally with someone. Probably Jon Snow due to their relationship when Tyrion was at the Wall.
