    What's it like where you live?

    all the chat about brits behaving badly abroad led me to posting this hilarious link: https://jezebel.com/male-models-break-out-in-30-person-brawl-outside-the-ro-1820076827?utm_campaign=socialflow_jezebel_facebook&utm_source=jezebel_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow

    Benioff & Weiss Create CONFEDERATE

    Great read articulating the potential problems with this duo behind the show: https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/08/no-confederate/535512/

    As someone on reddit says, we're like Stannis, starving, waiting... I so hope this is true. I can hardly bear to think on it!

    LOL. I feel sorry for us, and amused by us at once. Any snippet, however vague and unfounded would do me right now!

    Lol, yes. Sadly.

    Of course! I knew I'd missed someone! In that case I'd swap Jon for Mel except we'd need a pre resurrection PoV which means we need at least 1 Mel chapter. Hmm. Could work if we ignore the prologue (dead in same chapter) pov as a one off and not part of the 13. But that isn't how we've done it for past books so I don't know... Should we take 13 as set in stone or an approximate anyway?

    Yes. A suicide mission. So how many POVs confirmed now out of the 13? I think this means: Asha Sansa Arya Arianne Jon C Tyrion Dany Cersei Aeron Barristan Theon Prologue/Jenye Leaving Brienne, Jaime, Sam, Melisandre: we need someone at the Wall so I think M is a go, where Aeron can give us eyes on OT, along with either B or J.

    This is fab stuff! Thanks, @BryndenBFish! This almost satiates my burning need for TWOW!

    Orange is the New Black

    Binged this over the weekend. Really enjoyed this season. I found it better than 3. The ending was intense! I really liked the tense dynamic between the new guards, the inmates and Caputo. Anyway, I'd love to discuss this with whoever's finished the season!

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Didn't anyone watch the hilariously cheesy Gods of Egypt? NCW is the lead (Horus). It has great effects, a shit plot, mediocre acting and loads of mangled Egyptian mythology (I absolutely love all kinds of mythology, no matter how OTT). Great pastime if you're hungover.
  12. I know, right? I ranted about this earlier. It's like, I am watching because I want to, and I don't owe anyone any explanation. At all. LOL. I love the faux curiosity/concern trolling/labelling some people display around here.
  13. Khione, Humble AK: agree to disagree, since I don't imagine we shall be seeing eye to eye on this topic any time soon. Haven't watched the premiere yet; saving it for tonight. @Theda Baratheon: Geilis is awesome and the actress is brilliant (I saw her in The Borgias and she was great there too).
  14. Hilarious that you are defending Craster's keep as being necessary somehow: a made up story in the show, not from the books and even there, it wasn't enough to see random arseholes rape random women to understand 'THIS PLACE IS BAD!'. No, we had to see Karl Tanner drool over and threaten Meera. And you think 'that was needed because it's a bad world'? I also like how you ignored my comparison of a FAKE MEDIEVAL BAD WORLD in GoT with an actual historical time and place in Outlander, and somehow you think the more rape the better in the former, but it is unforgiveable in the latter? WOW. I am 99% certain you're aware of the dissonance here. I think there's no point in carrying on here. I view stuff in context, not in a vacuum. I cannot personally equate sexism toward men with that toward women. Not because of history alone, but because of even modern society and culture and a fundamental underpinning of civilisation where women have been dominated, used, abused and raped AND STILL ARE BEING TREATED BADLY AROUND THE WORLD FAR MORE THAN "SEXISM TOWARDS MEN". The former is a huge, pervasive problem that impacts millions of ACTUAL WOMEN across the globe daily, and the latter is something that... happens sometimes in shows like Outlander and Spartacus. If you think that's the same, great! I don't. Also, if you think it convenient to dismiss context--which in my view is vital to any mature discussion--as 'because history', well, you have every right to do just that too. And I have every right to dismiss this sort of dismissive condescension directed toward women (their past and current status and how that can consequently shape their world-view) as ill-informed, patronising mansplaining. I guess we need men to tell us how to feel about rape and exploitation, right? HAHAHA. Again, I clarified this. 1 out of 6 women in America get raped, just 1 stat. Feel free to look up rape stats around the world. RAPE IS COMMON AND PERVASIVE. Far more than 'mutilation and torture'. Women get raped daily around the world in significant numbers. Can you claim the same for mutilation and torture? Can you see why this may therefore be more 'sensitive'? Oh, and shirtless men =/= shirtless women, because breasts. Kindly do some research on breasts being an erotic symbol in most cultures. Kindly also explain to me why, if they're the same, men are allowed to walk around shirtless in public and women aren't. The claims of 'Jamie was shirtless so why not Claire THATONETIME?' are fallacious, therefore. Last, if you're replying to or quoting my posts to another poster, kindly read the entire thing and then respond. Your comment claiming I said "GoT treats rapists like heroes/laugh at victims" is 100% wrong, because I didn't make that in reference to GoT, but as a general reply to a general statement made by that poster.
