Out of the Blue

I'm very excited at tonight's return of Game of Thrones. Even amid all the hype and click-bait GoT articles on the Internet the past few weeks it's still a little hard to believe we've finally made it to this point. And in spite of the advance notice of the truncated final season, it's even harder to accept that this will all be wrapped up in six weeks. It's a little weird that this is airing in the spring since the show is finally experiencing the winter that they've been going on about for seven seasons. On the other hand, next week is Easter Sunday (happy Palm Sunday to all who are celebrating), so is it weird that I'm wondering if we may see another "dead" character resurrected next week? Probably not, as that certainly could come off as too blasphemous, obvious, or cutesy, but still, you know, Lady Stoneheart? Naaah...

Not really understanding all of the GoT love. The first few seasons were amazing but season 7 was appallingly bad and I don't think there is any reason to believe the next one will be any better.
That's what happens when they are out of source material. It's gone full blown made for tv drama.

Rejoice book fans, George R. R. Martin has picked up speed on Winds of Winter.

We'll see if he can stop playing Civ long enough to finish it.

On the one hand, although it would be cool, I'll be shocked if he actually finishes the series before he dies. One the other hand, if he does fail to finish, it is something I can cross off my to-do list...

If he doesn't finish it someone else will. Bank on it. Too much money on that table to leave it there.

I think this is the Foxtrot you were looking for.

The website was crapping itself when I went there, so I fell back on the tweet.
Gotta live the intarwebs, the tweet link wouldn't work for me. I'm not saying it was aliens...

Nothing like a little mother son meth smoking and an outing to Walmart for wholesome family fun. I'm also not unconvinced the dog was on meth.
Guess that would explain them saying she's 46. She's 46, wtf?

Heh, that made me actually click on it and.. whoohooooo... someone got the cocaine fault-lines on their face.
