Top 10 Moments From Game Of Thrones Season 6 Pt. 2

Published

on

Welcome back to the Game Of Thrones Top 10 moments of season 6!!! When we last left off, we discussed the Madness of Cersei, Hodor holding the door, Jon Targaryen and a host of other astounding developments in Season 6. We round off the top 10 in this latest offering to the fanatics of Westeros.


Fallout Boy a.k.a. Tommen Lannister

It appears that Tommen a.k.a Fallout Boy will not be coming back in the next season as he has opted out of his life without Marjaery’s punany contract. I mean let’s face it, he’s a sweet kid. So basically, he never stood a chance. Tommen was way too susceptible to whomever was in his ear at the moment. From Tywin to Cersei to Marjaery to the Artist Formally Known As The High Sparrow, Tommen was in no way like his brother King Joffery who listened to no one. As much of a jerk as Joffery was, he certainly had more conviction in decision making, albeit the wrong decision all the time. Had Tommen picked a side (any side and not every side) it may have saved his life. Ah well. Valar Morghulis, que sera sera.

 

I don’t mess with chicks from Dorne

They’re beautiful. They’re mesmerizing. Do you like  threesomes? Well they’ll come into your room and ask you how you want it. Unfortunately, they will be speaking of how you would like to die. Martell women of Dorne don’t share that much time on the screen but when they do, rest assured, someone is about to be promoted and something is about to be inherited. They poisoned a princess, killed their own prince and his son in like three minutes of screen time. They’re like a lost tribe of fighting Cersei Lannisters. No, thank you.

 

“You Reek A! My name is Theon!” / Brienne saves Sansa’s skin

Buckle up, gonna be a lot of dick jokes in this paragraph.

After several seasons of being emasculated, humiliated, and castrated, Reek/Theon finally grew a pair (poor choice of words) and decided to reclaim what was left of his manhood (buckle up, gonna be a lot of dick jokes in this paragraph.) We saw hints of his awakening at the end of Season 5 when he rescued Sansa. Ramsey Bolton slowly and methodically tortured Theon  / Reek to no end (sorta like Michael Bolton). As if severing your gonads and hunting your woman with bow and arrows and ravenous dogs weren’t enough, being forced to watch Sansa undergo similar treatment was the straw that broke the camel’s sack ..I mean back. Theon’s moment of zen came when he tossed Ramsey’s Harlot over the ledge as she prepared to harm Sansa and got her to the point where Lady Brienne could save both of them. Way to go Theon! I mean you burned two kids alive and betrayed the family that raised you, but hey, baby balls.. I mean baby steps.  Too bad your blue balls led back to Greyjoy in more ways than one. I’m sure The Unsullied and Varys have a support group you can attend, so keep your head up. It’s like the people from your town say, “What is dead may never die but rises again harder and stronger.” Yeah, you may want to ask the Iron Islands for a new catch phrase. That ain’t gonna work for you no more.

Raising Bran

As the late Hodor can testify under oaf, Brandon Stark is a jerk! The war of the seven kingdoms is basically all his fault. The Late Caitlyn asked him not to climb walls and his Stark disobedience has since led to broken legs, severed hands, death, destruction and war. He screwed Hodor’s life. He was told not to DWB (“Don’t Warg Bran!”) but did he listen? Noooooo! And now look; the Knight King has touched you inappropriately and is now all up in the crib with his feet on the three eyed Raven like Rick James on Eddie Murphy’s couch. The spell is broken and probably will be in other places (like the Wall for instance). Plus it’s a damn shame what they did to that dog/wolf! Bran, this is all your fault.

“My name is Arya Stark. You killed my father. Prepare to Die.”

Arya “ Inigo Montoya” Stark has finally finished the 37th chamber of her Shaolin sword training and just in time, too, as it’s about to be on and poppin’ in Westeros! Ayra Stark ain’t nothing to f*ck with as was made clearly evident after she not only dispatched of that crazed, psycho-terminator Waif bitch who literally tried to run her down in Bravos, but also showed the Freys her newly acquired ‘Needle” point and baking skills. “No thanks Arya. I’ll make my own meals and knit my own sweaters, if you don’t mind.” If the season finale was any indication of things to come, being on Arya’s bad side is not a good place to be. And if you don’t get the point, you will soon (OK, no more Needle jokes.)


And there you have it! Now what am I gonna do for the next twelve months? So… who wants a “Top 10 horrific moments of GOT?” Anyone? anyone? Oh well. Until next time; “What is dead may never die.”

AMAZON’S “CARNIVAL ROW”

Published

on

By

Just three episodes in and Carnival Row has me hooked and mesmerized by the sheer amount of work Amazon Studios has put into making and building a world set in a Victorian fantasy wonderland. It may feel familiar and even remind you of majestic scales seen in Harry Potter or even The Lord of the Rings but make no mistake this series stands on its own and will be the model other similar fantasy tales are told.

Amazon studios really delivered an amazingly realistic looking world!

You also get hints of Sherlock Holmes from the many British actors the show puts on display. This world not only houses humans but it also features Fauns aka Critch or Puck. Which are humans with horns attached to their heads and goat legs for…. well legs of course.  The second tier of creatures are the Fae who resemble humans at first glance but instead have wings on their backs. They are a non-violent group who fled their homeland from outside invaders. They’re also called Pix. The last group of other worldly beings are called the Pact, who are no friends to the Fae. I hesitate to enter spoiler territory as the reveal of what these creatures are can be seen early in the series.

The story is essentially a civil war among three groups of people and conflicts with the overpowering government in place. Mix that with the ongoing tensions of humans and creatures attempting to live in “harmony” in one land and you have yourself an amazing story relevant to our current state of disarray in this country.

Leading the cast are actors Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne who wonderfully steer this complex interweaving beautiful fantasy world in the right direction, each playing characters opposite of each other but also having their own past backstory of fighting together in a war as well as a blossoming romance between them. Enough so to make their current situation even that more appealing and engaging.

If that’s not enough there is a serial killer prowling about the city disfiguring their prey in a grotesque inhumane fashion. Another character worth mentioning is the actual city where most of the story takes place which is called the Burge. The city is brimming with life and cracks of danger lurking in each corner. Just the lighting alone from street lamps illuminating light in the dark noir city alley ways instantly puts you in that time period, not to mention the costume details of key characters. Amazon studios really delivered an amazingly realistic looking world. All worth investing your time and attention in to.

Delving into anything thought provoking and relevant to our current times, with a touch of sci fi and tech to keep the needle on the beat.

THE BEST PLAYER IN BASEBALL

Published

By

It’s a Friday night and i’m finishing up some work waiting for a friend. So I click over to the Angels Seattle game and the first thing  I see is the entire Angels team adorning the number 45, the number worn by their fallen teammate Tyler Skaggs who died of unknown circumstances. However there was something else that I came to realize while watching. Mike Trout really is one of the best baseball players i’ve ever seen!

The man delivers something productive practically every time I see him play. Whether i’m watching at the stadium, in an airport or at home. He’ll surely be diving in centerfield to rob a hit, stealing a base to get in scoring position or driving himself in with a 400 foot home run. His impact is beyond REAL!

If you haven’t seen him play, I suggest you catch it while you can. This level of excellence doesn’t come too often and you wouldn’t want to regret missing it. Let’s put it this way, Mike Trout signed a 12 year contract for…wait for it….$426.5 Million dollars plus a 20 million dollar bonus. And guess what? He’s not overpaid! The dude is really that good.

Mike Trout really is one of the best baseball players i’ve ever seen!

If you don’t believe me, just peep the stats. Coming into his 9th year in the league, the former rookie of the year, 2 time MVP (finished second 4 times) and 8 time all-star has been averaging 38 home runs, 101 rbi’s and a batting average of .306 per season. This is a Lebron in a lifetime type of talent with a lot more in the tank to go.

It may come as a surprise to the casual sports fan since Mike isn’t in every other commercial like most superstar athletes. But to baseball aficionados out there, this isn’t really a revelation at all. They’re just praying the Angels get some more talent around him to showcase those skills to the world or just trade him to the Yankees. I’m pretty sure New York can find a way to make some room for him.

WHEN THEY SEE US

Published

By

When They See Us could have easily been called When They Hate Us. The reenactment of the level of vitriol and disdain towards the lives of these children of color served as a harsh reminder of the reality we still reside in. This series is grueling, alarming and absolutely necessary for every truth seeker to watch. The ability to share our stories and provide our perspectives is a powerful tool that hasn’t always been readily available to us. But times have changed and Ava DuVernay masterfully utilizes her platform to highlight the humanity behind these victims turned heroes.

The performance of the entire cast will garner a considerable amount of attention during award season. From the dynamics of Antron McCray’s (Caleel Harris/Jovan Adepo) relationship with his father (Michael Kenneth Willams) to the strength of faith illustrated by Yusuf Salaam (Ethan Herisse/Chris Chalk) and his mother (Aunjanue Ellis), the brilliance of acting is in heavy abundance. In particular Jharrel Jerome’s heart wrenching transformation into Korey Wise has audiences around the globe streaming much more than video.

Growing up as a 14 year old child in New York City during 1989, it was nearly impossible not to be affected by the pageantry of this case. Meeting up with groups of friends, parental concerns and police interactions were brought to the forefront in daily life. This could have happened to anyone including myself. The thought of being presumed innocent before proven guilty was never a concept my peers and I ever thought applied to us. The only goal was survival and to accomplish it as best as you can.

Unfortunately these kids were caught in the malicious plan of destroying black lives before they had the chance to begin. The true animals at large dealt them a fixed hand and discarded them with the expectation of never to be heard from again.

However they stayed true to themselves with the ideology of survival and persevered to expose the evil that men do. Thank you exonerated 5!
