Music Monday: Light of the Seven by Ramin Djawadi

A Music Monday first, this post has a spoiler warning for events in Season 6 on Game of Thrones. How can one post this music and not talk about the events it underscored? I sat down to watch the season finale and heard the score as people got dressed and went to the Sept of … Continue reading Music Monday: Light of the Seven by Ramin Djawadi

Outlandish Games on Sunday Nights

  Two shows from wildly successful books began to mesh on Sunday nights. Outlander and Game of Thrones dovetail this year as I picked up Movie Central to get HBO and Showcase has broadcast rights for Outlander in  Canada.  Make your choice, red or brunette, Laird of Lallybrock or Lord Commander,  plaid or black, Je … Continue reading Outlandish Games on Sunday Nights

Lazy Sunday At Cafe Fatima

The weather last week look miserable. Last week the flu made me feel miserable. Today I finally emerged on my balcony, dubbed Cafe Fatima, to read for a bit and write.  People had colds and flu and dragged their germs into the library. Add the weather and no wonder people went down like flies, present … Continue reading Lazy Sunday At Cafe Fatima

Outlander Does Something Pretty Remarkable (With Bonus Ron Moore)

Sunday nights my PVR almost overheat from the shows I record. The Walking Dead has finished, but Mad Men shows its final episodes on AMC, Game of Thrones continues its intrigue on Movie Central, while Outlander captivates on Showcase after breaking for nearly six months. Watching The Walking Dead as people try to outwit humans, … Continue reading Outlander Does Something Pretty Remarkable (With Bonus Ron Moore)

Midweek Geekiness: Welcome Back Westeros!

How do I follow-up the emotional gut-punch called season 4 of The Walking Dead?  By trading in Kirkman's deadly pen for George R.R. Martin's even deadlier pen.  Welcome to season 4 of Game of Thrones.  I tried to put it in bold typeface, but it's safe to say any discussion of Game of Thrones will … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Welcome Back Westeros!

Midweek Geekiness

Off-Camera Style I remember an interview with Richard Armitage who once said the first time he put on John Porters' clothing and weapon, it didn't feel real like it's a costume a kid puts on.  Once an actor gets into the role, the clothes feel like a second skin.  (Except for the women of Mad … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness

Midweek Geekiness

I have seen zombies eat people in a number of different places on The Walking Dead.  None of those actions stayed with me in my mind, or in my dreams.  However, Matthew Weiner came up with something more insidious to remain in my mind.  Actually if Don Draper knew zombies existed, he would wish one … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness

Monday Geekiness

The Simpson's have done some pretty good couch gags over the 20 plus years on the air.  Recently, they turned their satirical eye on Game of Thrones by mashing Springfield with Westeros.  To say this video was difficult to find and share is an understatement.  Fox took down clips on websites and blogs with Digital … Continue reading Monday Geekiness

Midweek Geekiness

I liked doing the last Midweek Geekiness so much I decided to do it again. Game of Thrones Season 2 Game of Thrones season 2 showed another trailer.  The Spider does a silky monologue on power while the song 'Seven Devils' by Florence and the Machine plays in the background. Saying I feel excited for the … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness
