Did the Blackfish know? I don’t remember him being in on it in the books. This seems like a deliberate change for the show, but maybe we’ll find out next week? I also thought Weiss and Benioff really twisted the knife (no pun intended?) by killing off Robb’s wife and unborn child, since she isn’t at the wedding (and there’s no pregnancy hinted at) in the books. Oh, wait, I’m that endlessly-compares-the-show-to-the-books person.
This was a JK, but oh well
HOW DO YOU KNWO SHE VOTED FOR ROMNEY I MUST KNOW THE SOURCE OF THIS INTEL
This is “gotcha!” commentism at its worst
wait wait wait what do you mean how do you know Mindy Kaling voted for Romney
I actually think a magazine as pretentious as the NYer is better for having someone like Dunham in it/shill for it. I genuinely enjoy her work and point of view. It’s a shame people can’t just be fans of Lena Dunham without entering into some larger, annoying conversation about the hype surrounding her.
This is my neighborhood!
“We can’t afford to have these all made from scratch.” Though we can’t afford to bake our own heads, here at Game of Thrones, we import heads made from the finest head recipes.
Because this show is the best and I am reading the books obsessively, I second the recap request. To put my perspective in SAT analogy terms, I am to Game of Thrones as those people who wish Avatar was real are to Avatar.
I know this is an “anti” attitude, but I am shocked by how much this man enrages me.
Drive, Seasons 1& 2 of Boardwalk Empire, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, season 3 of The League, and Die Hard (my favorite xmas movie). Maybe I’ll take a walk, too.
No prob. Bissell is great. I’m a big fan of his fiction and nonfiction, but he has been writing a lot about video games (he has a book about them) and he does a regular column about them for Grantland. I don’t play video games (because I am an adult woman; Bissell: “If you have no idea what the Elder Scrolls franchise is, you are probably either (a) an adult woman…”), but the article was interesting, anyway because of his discussion of the way story lore is conveyed in video games. You should look up some of this other Grantland articles!
I just read about this game! http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/7290527/one-night-skyrim-makes-strong-man-crumble
I don’t play video games but this writer is great.
Someone pls post a gif of the “Haters Gonna Hate” guy with a pee stain added to it and a shamrock on his shirt kthanxbai
“More like Fagnew!!!” -Brett Ratner
Why didn’t they call it “Flickster”? Or is that too much like Flickr? Why am I wondering about this?
LOL “a dead man’s funeral.” Live men funerals are more cheerful, to be sure.
Yes. I agree completely.
I didn’t take the grossout parts to be in the tone of “ew, girls pooping” etc. I took it to mean that pooping is funny in general, and it’s just as funny with women performers joking about it as it is with male performers. Plus, I’m a woman and I love toilet humor, so that was welcome!
THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF MICHAEL BIEHN, FINALLY
I like to imagine that instead of this diatribe coming from Aaron Sorkin it’s actually spoken by one of the West Wing characters (preferably Josh, though that doesn’t seem likely), in an actual confrontation with Sarah Palin, who is also a character on the West Wing, and not an actual person voted into a position of government by real Americans.
Ahem…”Solsbury Hill.” I’ll grab my things; I’m going to take me home.
