  1. Latest Atlanta episode was hilarious. I wondered for a moment if it was going to be a series finale, especially since the opening minutes seemed to echo the pilot episode, if I remember correctly. I think I laughed more thinking about the episode afterwards than during it. Paper Boi's old video:
  2. The average person on social media now thinks there are two Saurons.
  3. Yeah, consider it bullshit, googling led me astray. It came from a trading card games or the a line of miniatures.
  4. For those wondering about this moment in the latest episode of HOTD, Not sure which interview that was from but seen it going around today on FB. Anyway, was a great moment, totally fortuitous.
  5. I think the only thing that would really being satisfactory is that the being Adar killed is someone he thought was Sauron, but it actually wasn't, and that being became Halbrand. Maybe Halbrand will later will become one of the Nazgul. lol maybe Halbrand is a werewolf. If the Witch King wasn't canonically human, I would have thought Adar would become it. Really, the only interest I have in this series is who are the 9 nazgul? They apparently are called: The Witch-king of Angmar, The Dark Marshal, Khamûl The Easterling, The Betrayer, The Shadow Lord, The Undying, The Dwimmerlaik, The Tainted and The Knight of Umbar. If Halbrand isn't one of those, I can't imagine what the writers are thinking.
  6. Heh. Apparently the Harfoots were suppose to be smaller, and hole-diggers, and it was a Fallohides who were this size, and wanderers.
  7. Celeborn has probably been imprisoned for a long time, or maybe stuck on an island somewhere after the drowning of Beleriand. If he's in a dungeon, wouldn't be surprised if it's Dol Guldur, and Anarion is now there too.
  8. She's probably more blocked than ever now, and is using swordplay to work out her anger issues.
  9. As speculated, it's likely Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown will be joining the Community movie. At least, Dan Harmon thinks so. I really hope it is a Search for Troy type adventure, where they have to trace all the things Troy's got up to in the years since they last saw him.
  10. That's interesting. I had to look his history up on the The One Wiki, and it states a bit of trivia at the bottom of the page that says Tolkien considered for a bit that Glorfindel might have been one of the Blue Wizards, but ultimately decided against it.
  11. A new Planet of the Apes trilogy is in the works, following the recent Caesar trilogy with Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes in 2024. Presumably this trilogy will focus all three parts on Cornelius.
  12. you mean Ghost...? The past week I've seen a lot of pages on facebook that the algorithm suggests to me proclaiming SNOW is "official" and beginning filming this December just makes me grind my teeth. Clickbait, clearly, to get people to subscribe to those HOTD meme pages.
  13. I was right about the Sokovia Accords being repealed, though I thought it would happen in the show.
  14. I thought it more that the Dance of the Dragons was deliberately written as a foil to ASOIAF. The latter has foils within it already, notably Theon being a foil of Jon. The Dance is a foil for a situation, which in the main hasn't happened yet: fAegon, Dany, and maybe others, re-enacting the Targaryen civil war, to show a different way things could turn out. This is more than archetypes. It's not meant to turn out the same way.
  15. Crew 5 launched (rewind to see crew boarding rituals etc.)
  16. Anson Boon? No, ought to be Anson Mount, with that Pike hair. I could see all Numenor falling for him. But that's the point, Harfoot and the other tribes of proto-Hobbit adapt from migratory foragers to sedentary agriculturists, their language is going to adapt too, and what they call themselves will. Hobbitish is a subdialect of Westron (the Common Speech), which descended from Numenorian's Adunaic. But the Numenorians haven't colonized Middle Earth yet so that influence hasn't happened yet.
  17. To be accurate: SpaceX donated 66% of the initial 5000 terminals shipped to Ukraine, the U.S. government paid for the other third, plus transportation on military cargo aircraft. An additional 10,000 terminals were sent in June, bringing the ratio to 89% SpaceX to 11% U.S. funded. SpaceX also waived the monthly operating costs for using them for all Ukrainians. U.S. expense was about $10M, SpaceX cost $80M so far and counting. Why 89% and not all? I'm speculating but the 11% most probably went to Ukrainian government users (including municipalities in the warzone), which SpaceX could not simply give without tripping over rules against companies donating to foreign governments because that would look like a bribe.
