So often we think that we need more to be successful. More outside funding for our startup. More software programs or productivity tools to handle our to-do list. More business contacts, a bigger network. More clothes or cars or credit cards. But maybe what we really need is less
I'm in a pedi-cab modeled after the Iron Throne in the Game of Thrones. In the Game of Thrones, you win, or, well, you don't win.
Thirteen point eight million U.S. viewers on October 26, 2014, Sunday night, had watched their TV sets during The Walking Dead season five episode three titled, "Four Walls and a Roof."
Schmidt, an art and animation professor, posted a picture of his young daughter wearing a T-shirt with the Game of Thrones quote, "I will take what is mine with fire & blood" to Google+. The dean found this picture of a child doing yoga so terror-inducing that she reported him to other BCC administrators.
A veteran actor with more than 40 film and TV roles to his credit, Denmark native Nikolaj Coster-Waldau finally hit paydirt as the nefarious, yet complicated, Jamie Lannister on HBO's hit series Game of Thrones.
The average Joe doesn't have much of a voice these days in what lawmakers are deciding. We can't afford lobbyists to speak on our behalf. HBO, CBS, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon and the rest have more than enough money to lobby for Net Neutrality -- it ultimately affects their bottom line. As strange as this may seem, this could end up being a rare case of what passes for Capitalism in this country actually working for average people.
Fantasy makes great television and literature. It also makes poor public policy. Poverty denial molds how many conservatives, and even independents, understand economic deprivation.
Fans of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire saga love to speculate about what will happen next. With two books (of seven) to go, the identity of the eventual occupant of the Iron Throne is anyone's guess. But if the Warlocks of Qarth can see into the future, why can't we?
Whether you are looking to write, scout or shoot (the Icelandic Film Centre offers a 20 percent rebate if you meet certain "cultural criteria"), put Reykjavik and RIFF in your filmmaking bucket list.
WINTERFELL... is ARRYN'S KEEP.
1. Free speech and the First Amendment are not the same thing. In fact, free speech is a much bigger, older, bolder cultural idea.
Barbra, like few others before her, is a pure, expressive musical instrument. She's the kind of singer who can listen to a full 120-piece orchestra and stop because Saul, the second bassoon is slightly sharp and perhaps incontinent. She hears everything.
I like to watch TV. Okay, maybe I love to watch TV. Either way, you get it. I'm 'addicted' to many shows, and I admit that a time or two, I have opted to stay in and watch a show over going out for human contact. What I don't like is to be judged for it.
The production elements are not heaven sent. The set designs of David Korins are clever, but confusing and cluttered. The Kong-size doors, the ready abundance of knives, spears and scythes, keep the eyes very busy and the questions coming.
Weird stuff happens here all the time. Sometimes we have dance parties. I have these lights that flash and stuff, and they play a lot of rap music.
Is my one-time favorite magazine going the way of the dodo bird? What's to become of TIME after it was cut loose from a corporate tether tied to a sought-after prize?
