  1. I watched the finale episode of 1899 last night and was pleasantly surprised by the ending. I thought it was brilliant. I learned how to parallel park as a teen driving a super long, 70-something Delta 88 Royale. It was only a 2-door, but about the length of a limousine. You figure out how to parallel park that boat and you'll never have trouble with anything smaller.
  2. I'm watching 1899 too. I read yesterday that you're supposed to change your settings so that you get all the subtitles. The ship's crew speaks many different languages so if you're watching the English dubbed version like I am, we're supposedly missing out on some of the context in the subtitles. I actually wondered if this is how they did it. Very cool.
  3. I watched the first episode today. This is a weird show, but weird in a good way!
  4. The video narrator is entertaining - set the shadow loose from the cooch - but I do like her interpretation of two of the Old Nan stories: the old tower hit by lightning, Bran falling, and losing his sight, and how Bran figuratively is the Last Hero with Hodor being his horse and Summer his dog, as well as his name meaning "raven" and that the Starks are supposed to send a raven or a Bran to the Children to become a greenseer, but the Children ended up with a Brynden instead. Good stuff in here!
  5. For the Heresy Christmas edition, why don't we revisit Old Nan stories?
  6. This is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing! I'll be sure to watch. When I see stuff like this it makes me feel like we are being prepared for our own realization that we are living in a simulated reality. I view the Bible as a sort of instruction manual. The gospel of John states, "in the beginning was the Word" - the sound "OM". OM is the sound people meditate to and after the sound we have "let there be light". You push the power button, you hear the OM sound, and then the light comes on. The OM is also heard before every show on HBO begins - an extended Ooooommm! before it morphs into the sound of static. The power is turned on. The source of this power is within every one of us and we are connected to a great godhead-computer just like in GRRM's ASOIAF universe. The precession of the equinoxes is scientific fact. The Earth wobbles in space like an out-of-balance top. Each full wobble takes about 25,765 years. The 25,765 years are broken into 12 ages which are named after the signs of the Zodiac so each age is roughly 2147 years or so. The position of the sun on the vernal equinox determines which age we are in. Referring to the Bible again, we are in the age of Pieces - the two fishes which are also associated with Jesus. Christians believe it has been 2022 years since he died. Varying sources put Jesus's age anywhere from 33 to 40 years of age so we are anywhere from 2055 to 2062 years into the age of Pieces meaning the age of Aquarius is only 85 to 92 years away. At the Last Supper his disciples asked who they should follow after he was dead and he told them, "Behold, as you go into the city, there shall meet you a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him into the house where he entereth in." The image for Aquarius is a man carrying a pitcher of water. If you recall the story of Moses when he came down the mountain with the Ten Commandments, you might recall that people were worshipping a golden calf. The calf of course was Taurus and Moses was the leader for the age of Aries the ram. He was angry at the people for reverting to a past age when they should be moving into the "house" of Aries the ram. The Old Testament is full of examples of ram symbolism. The Old Testament are a record from the age of Aries and the New Testament are documents from the age of Pieces. When we enter the age of Aquarius we will experience enlightenment - a period of spiritual awakening. Republicans deride our "woke" culture, but it's very possible that we are living in a very sophisticated but simulated reality similar to what Lisa Joy and Jonathon Nolan illustrated with Westworld. Maybe our true selves don't even have physical bodies? True enlightenment will involve waking up and becoming aware of who we really are.
  7. Blood and Cheese were supposedly hired by Daemon to kill King Aegon II's firstborn son, Jahaerys. Blood was a butcher, but he also was a sergeant in the City Watch and thus the connection to Daemon. Cheese was a rat-catcher in the Red Keep and thus had knowledge of all the tunnels.
  8. I guess that must have been just me that was confused. I watched the entire 4th season before trying to analyze it. The constant deaths of the AI hosts and their rebuilds made it hard to keep track of not just the timeline, but who they were working for. Clementine switched sides multiple times depending on who rebuilt her. Some of the parks weren't physically real. They only existed in a simulation. So if you got all that the first go through, then kudos to you. Serac (Vincent Cassel) and Caleb (Aaron Paul) were necessary characters to explain the entire series so I'm not sure why you thought they "killed" the 3rd season.
  9. I liked it. It worked, because the focus was narrow. GoT had too many separate stories going on simultaneously which D&D tried to condense, but it only upset the book fans. If you talk to people that never read the books, but watched the show - they liked it alot.
  10. There was actually enough of an ending in the season 4 finale. I’m not sure where they’d go with a 5th season. It ended with the beginning of another simulation. Isn’t that a typical ending for science fiction?
  11. Probably a good idea! I had already finished watching Westworld season 4 before writing the episode analysis, and it was even tougher considering that the show waited two years to drop the 4th season. I needed to rewatch a few episodes from season 3 to get the story back in my head to make sense of season 4. And I know I will have to rewatch season 4 again as I go along. Its a very difficult story to follow and make sense of.
  12. If anyone is interested in my analysis of S4:E1 of Westworld, the post is up and can be accessed here. @Mace Cooterian
  13. I'm currently rereading previous episode analysis and came across this: "Who" is inside Dolores? I think this is the main question that may get answered in season 4. @Mace Cooterian I'm working on the analysis of S4:E1 right now. Just check back at HoBaW in a few days... Sorry Heretics. Just a little commercial for a program that I don't plan to air here. Please return to your regularly scheduled programming. LOL, See what I did there? I made a little Westworld joke there.
  14. The seven wanderers are planets, of which one of them, we are told, is named the Smith. I think we can assume all seven planets are named after the seven aspects of the faith: Father, Warrior, Smith, Mother, Maiden, Crone, and Stranger.
  15. The only way that I could understand Rhaegar naming a second son the same as a first son would be if he knew the first son was dead. Unless you are like George Foreman who has five sons all named George.
  16. The dagger does not get a mention in the book Fire & Blood, but it does pop up in ASOIAF a couple times, although no one has mentioned whether or not an inscription is on it. Like I said upthread, a tidy solution has been provided to tie in the HBO storylines of HotD and GOT and the dagger is central to that solution. But I do doubt that Jon Snow is the current Aegon the younger, because I still doubt his parents are Rhaegar and Lyanna. I think the storyline was created as a way to not spoil the books. And the reason why there is so much available on the subjects of Targaryens and dragons is because they too cannot spoil the unpublished parts of the story. If we return to the old letter where George states his main characters, they're nearly all Starks. We're constantly told that "the North remembers", but that "Winterfell forgot". Surely this is where the real story is going?
  17. Don't you think the "dragon has three heads" is more of a recipe on how to bond a dragon? The dagger inscription reads: “from my blood come the prince that was promised, and his will be the song of ice and fire." Prior to falling into the hands of Aegon, the dagger was forged from Valyrian steel and given to Aegon's ancestor, Aenar Targaryen. The show specifically ties the dagger to Aegon's dream. In his dream he saw absolute darkness riding on the cold winds, and whatever dwells within will destroy the world of the living.
  18. Of course the dragon Daemon sang to was already hatched and grown, but maybe its a way to bond a dragon? Mirri's singing seemed to cause Daenerys miscarriage, but that wasn't a dragon hatching ceremony - it was to help Drogo stay alive. On the other hand, if bonding a dragon requires singing and sending a life into the dragon, why didn't they show Aemond doing those things to bond with Vhagar?
  19. Daenerys heard a dragon singing to her: Mirri sang to send the life from the stallion into Drogo, but she may have took Rhaego's life instead: Mirri sang while she burned in the funeral pyre, likely sending her own life into one of the dragon eggs - maybe even the lives of Drogo and Rhaego into the dragon eggs also?
  20. Now I want to go back and watch the episode. Was Daemon singing to the dragon while Rhaenyra was in labor?
  21. I have suggested before that Aerys and Rhaella's dead children were actually child sacrifices. Once they had the heir and the spare (Rhaegar and Viserys) the rest were disposable. Daenerys escaped that fate, because she was born on Dragonstone away from her father.
  22. That song suggests that the third head of the dragon is a sacrifice. These are the three heads: dragon, rider, and the sacrifice.
