Find Me On:
I guess I was just wondering “What of doppledeaner’s magic?”
Khal Drogo! Everything in the House of the Undying was perfect for me, up until the dragons fried the doppeldeaner. I don’t even think the dragons needed to get all flamethrower on him, after that first puff, he was done for. You can conjure 10 copies of yourself to murder your rivals, but if you catch your oversized sleeve on the stove you’re finished? Definitely not anywhere near a dealbreaker, just took me out of the moment a bit. The bit with Ducksauce was perfect though…
Oh man oh man oh man, so good. The return of Khal Drogo? Are you kidding? So sad. And Maester Lewin (sp?) and all of it, oh shit. I don’t even know. Is it next year yet? Season three starts next week right?
I thought Jamie Lannister stole the show last night. That long convo with that kid before he brained him was great, and then he outdid himself in his little back and forth with Cat Stark. Hey, Jamie Lannister, insouciance called, blah blah blah.
Also, I can’t wait for a dire wolf to rip Theon apart (not a spoiler, just what I hope happens). Hate that sniveling asshole.
I had totally forgotten about Ghost! He’s wandering around out there somewhere. They showed it in the last episode. I kind of hope he doesn’t rescue Jon from the wildlings just yet though, I’m pretty curious about their whole set up.
Heard it too: “I killed Jenna Elfman, is that right?”

Someone listened to Fresh Air yesterday. Or maybe not, but yesterday on Fresh Air, Terry Gross was talking to a guy who just came out with a book called “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank”, which is a play on Raymond Carver’s “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love”. And Uggie not being invited to the Oscars definitely works in this context, because it’s the sort of easy stand-in we use to discuss our fears about those things that make up the core of our identity, because we can’t just talk about them because it’s scary! Who are we anymore if Uggie doesn’t get to go to the Oscars?!?! Oh no! Does this mean my grandpa was right about me wasting my life on cultural trivia? AAAGGGHGHGHG!!!! LET UGGIE GO TO THE OSCARS!!!!
So late to this, but Peep Show is just absolutely the best. 900thed.
But, no one oils their snakes any more…
Jim Carrey gets a lifetime pass from me for Dumb and Dumber (OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!), and he gets a lifetime ‘meh, I’ll pass’ for everything he’s done since.
I thought the joke with the Blue Jean Connection sketch/song was its hyper-specificity to the town in which they were performing? Like how most bands are all, “Detroit is our favorite city!”, when they’re playing in Detroit? But also it seemed like they were from the town they were playing in? The direction was weird though, in that Paul Rudd or Florence sans Machine would pop up on the edge of the frame in a shot of the band, and then we’d get a full shot of them watching the show? I still liked it though, so…
It could be set in South America somewhere, for some Latin flavor?
