1984 is now the top selling book on Amazon. If you haven’t read it recently, now’s the time to pick it up again. It’s stunning relevant.
As an avid fan of medieval history, several of the Game Of Thrones scenes had me screaming at the TV in disbelief.
Who above the age of two would try to run “straight” when fleeing an arrow? That’s something you learn when you learn how to walk! The arrow was a key, well-known weapon that was seen by every person in a keep!
And as much as the show makers like to Soap-Opera-play up the emotion of scenes, Jon was an attentive battle-hardened strategist. He *knew* and had been explicitly *told* that his young brother would be used. And yet he risks every man he’s responsible for – plus the lives of the entire world, really – for an emotional tantrum?
Both were done for sheer “move the plot forward to point X” reasons – a cheap move which drives me absolutely insane.
Why didn’t the giant just bash a hole through the ‘wall of dead men’ to give them an escape path?
I have to wonder if George R. R. Martin would really have written it like this. Now that HBO is off the reservation (in terms of book content) I get the feeling they are trying their best but, for this scene, it’s just not up to the standards for me. Sure, the overall scene was “a glorious battle” but the way it ended up there made absolutely no sense to me. It was forced progression in order to get there.
Roots starts in 10 minutes. I think it’s important for us to understand our history and how it has influenced our modern culture. Everything is connected.
Depression Quest helps players understand the darkness of this bleak disease – powerful both for those who suffer from it as well as their family and friends.
DDR is a decade old – and it’s a blast! Who else is still enjoying Dance Dance Revolution?
Wow Umberto Eco of Name of the Rose has passed away, too. An incredible author. One of my favorite stories. Sad day. To lose two literary greats at once. They will live on in their fantastic works.
