As someone who only caught up with the series last year and therefore had the option of binge-watching the first two seasons–the wait between seasons was painful but manageable. 


Game of Thrones: My Favorite New Thing of 2013

By: Tuesday December 31, 2013 6:45 pm

Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, direwolves in the tundra and The Wall and gratuitous nudity, and Ygritte is so annoying and sword play and WINTER IS COMING GAME OF THRONES IS THE BEST.

HBO Gets honest for 3 minutes….mostly.

By: Sunday February 3, 2013 5:00 pm

This 3 minute clip has been getting some play on the Internet. I don’t know how many people have shared it on YouTube and FB but it has been quite a few. The opening of the new series NEWSROOM, though not having cable I will not be able to see just how honest it will remain. Most series have at least 3 minutes worth watching.

Late Night: Armageddon Tired of This Mayan Apocalypse. Now Everyone’s Gone to the Movies. Or Santacon!

NASA continues to peer into the future, claiming that the world did not end on 12.21.12. We’ll address that on 12.22.12. If we’re here. Meanwhile, I got email from JP Sottile at newsvandal with whom I have an ongoing tinfoil millinery competition…

Access. It’s the name of the game.
