    If Robb had declared for Stannis, what would have changed?

    I imagine this would have leveled the playing field when it came to the Stannis vs. Renly showdown, since Stannis + The North and Riverlands vs. Renly + The Stormlands and the Reach for sure would have been a fairer fight. Perhaps since the odds wouldn't have been stacked high in Renlys favor, he would have accepted Stannis' offer to be made his heir? And maybe Stannis would be less likely to have made the Shadow Baby? Idk. But alas it couldn't have happened this way because if Stannis, Robb and Renly all allied as against the Lannisters, as awesome as it would have been the series would have been over with ACoK.

    Now down to 207. Last time I was this thin was at least 3 years ago now. Still doesn't feel like enough haha. Think I'm gonna see if I can't try to get under 200 - last time I weighed under 200 I was probably 20 and I was hanging in the upper 190s while swimming. But we'll see I guess. Pretty proud of myself regardless though.

  5. Remember how back in the early part of Season 5 - after being pretty shaky with his portrayal for a few years - they not only portrayed Stannis well but actually went as far as to make him even more likable than he was in the books? And then as soon as he pulled a total 180 and burned Shireen it became clear that D&D only made him more likable early on so it would up the shock value when he did the bad thing? It's starting to hit me that Danys show arc is basically this but stretched out over an entire series.

    Nah. John Wick is definitely not high brow by any stretch, but the fact that it doesn't have any illusions about being so and just excels at being what it is disqualifies it from being "bad". Dune doesn't even really register as a Lynch film in my mind tbh.

    A few months back I posted about how I'd gotten down to 225ish after being up in the 260s a year prior to that (I'm 6' 3'' for reference) via mostly elliptical, biking and a slightly better diet but felt like maybe I was plateauing/still needed to lose another 15ish lbs. Since then I've started running (up to 4 miles a day now) and have cut sugary drinks out of my diet, as well as mayo and ranch on sandwiches (using a lot more avocados instead). Weigh about 210 currently so I guess I hit my down 15 pounds goal but I still feel like I could afford to a lose another 5 or 10. Regardless, was pretty cool looking back at that post and seeing I've come along.

    The Room is obviously the trash cinema GOAT - incompetent auteur bad movies are the best bad movies. Since I've seen a few people in here namedrop Masters of the Universe, I'm curious if any Dolph Lundgren enthusiasts are familiar with Silent Trigger? It was directed by Russell Mulachy (Highlander), released in the mid 90s, pretty sure it went direct to VHS at the time and was filmed in Bulgaria (like most of Dolph Lundgrens filmography post 1995ish) at some half constructed skyscraper. I've watched a fuckton of direct to video action films in my time and enjoyed quite a few of them but this one has always been singular to me as its chalked full of atmospheric footage and existential themes atypical of the genre, but its execution of course still puts it firmly in the camp category. It's really unlike anything else I've ever seen and for my money its probably the most underrated bad movie out there. I also don't hear a lot people talking about Rage (originally titled Tokarev), one of many direct to DVD/Netflix titles Nicolas Cage as churned out in the past decade. As an ironic turned post ironic turned unironic Cage fan I'm hopeful the relative success of Mandy will lead to a Cageaissance akin to Matthew McConaugheys early 10s career revival but Rage is a real diamond in the rough waiting to be picked. It's the logical conclusion of the Taken formula and has some amazing Nouveau Shamanic moments from Cage to rival his best work. Sort of circling back to mid 90s movies with Dolph Lundgren, I recently rewatched Johnny Mnemonic as well and man I'd forgotten how great it is.

    What are you listening to Ventiquattro - Dont let Life pass you by.

    Early-mid 70s Tangerine Dream, Sunn O))), Locrian, Neu!, Berlin era Bowie, Oren Ambarchi, Growing, Can, Boris, Windy & Carl, Faust, Melvins, Lil B, Young Thug, Future, and Stars of the Lid who just never leave my rotation so they almost go without saying
  10. Also a guitarist and a Fender fanboy, but I wouldn't buy one of those for more than $100, and even then I'd leave it at home because graphic finishes on guitars are only cool if you're 14 or younger. Nevermind the fact that I wouldn't be interested even if I was 14 or younger because of course there was no Baratheon guitar. As far as the episode goes though...anyone else kind of just wish the entire show was just the subplot with Tormund, Edd and Beric at this point? I'd be stoked about the fact that the show seems to be setting up conflict between Jon and Dany too via Sansa and Sams apprehension towards her, but I'm not holding my breath because D$D have seemingly set up and failed to fall through on Dark Dany so many fucking times now only to just go back to glorifying her.

    Somehow all the stuff about the AG kinda passed me by but I can definitely get behind this. The mothers apparent contempt for Scoot would seem to be the reason for her complicity ie giving her daughter a "better" life with her real father, though perhaps she didn't account for the son being killed? Idk. But I def like where this is going. Loved old Wests' 180 too - thought maybe in the 90' timeline he'd become too big for his britches and curious about what led to him seemingly disowning the "good life".

    Vikings XII: It's not History, It's Hirstory [SPOILERS]

    Is it true that Ray Stevenson has a role in S6? I pretty much completely lost what little interest I still had in this show in Season 4 and haven't watched anything since, but I'm willing to give most anything with Ray in it a shot.

    So, what's your head canon?

    Stannis dies a hero fighting off an impending invasion of The Other after liberating the North from the Boltons. That's the only big one that I still somewhat hopelessly hold on to at this point. Oh yeah and Darkstar at some point wanders into a ruined Red Keep, sits on the Iron Throne for a few minutes, decides its uncomfortable, takes a shit on it and then walks out.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Watched the first three episodes a few days back. Went in skeptical, but so far I've been pleasantly surprised. That said, I definitely find myself agreeing that elements of it feel a little overly familiar to S1 re - Southern Gothic setting, multiple timelines, unreliable narrator (?), though on that last part at least they Pizzolatto seems to be taking a slightly different approach which makes it work. Still I'd rather have him stick to what he's good at so long as it isn't a blatant rehash than more of...whatever the hell Season 2 was supposed to be (for my money, half assed, purely superficial Lynch worship. He let the Twin Peaks comparisons from S1 get to his head). That said I'll always have a soft spot for this scene
