Game Of Thrones – An Exploration Part 1

When you look at watching an epic medieval times tv series look no further than Game Of Thrones. I rarely watch HBO series, although I have heard that HBO series are usually good, but this one is fucking awesome. Game Of Thrones is an American¬†medieval fantasy¬†television series created for¬†HBO¬†by¬†David Benioff¬†and¬†D. B. Weiss, based on author¬†George R. R. Martin’s best-selling¬†A Song of Ice and Fire¬†series of fantasy novels, the first of which is called¬†A Game of Thrones. Based on watching this I definitely need to get my hands on the books and read it at my leisure.

Looking at the cast I was wondering wow – Sean Bean, Mark Addy & Lena Headley! That’s a good list of leading actors to have. Sean Bean – I dunno, is this guy just made for medieval style movies? It seems like that to me. This is also one of the series that, whatever your genre tastes may be (scifi, cops & detective, horror, drama, romance, comedy etc), this is something everyone must try and watch. But beware as there is plenty of nudity & fornication and some violence in it, so it’s not for children or the easily offended.

At the heart of the series are two families – the Starks are led by Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark (Bean), patriarch of the Stark family. His wife, Catelyn Stark n√©e Tully, is played by Michelle Fairley. Their children are Robb (Richard Madden), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Arya (Maisie Williams), Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Rickon (Art Parkinson).¬†Kit Harington¬†plays Ned’s¬†bastard, Jon Snow, and¬†Alfie Allen¬†plays Theon Greyjoy, political hostage and ward of Lord Stark. The royal family King Robert Baratheon is played by¬†Mark Addy, and his wife, Queen Cersei Lannister, is played by¬†Lena Headey. Cersei has two brothers; her twin, Ser Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and the clever dwarf Tyrion (Peter Dinklage). Cersei’s oldest child is Prince Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), and his bodyguard is Sandor “The Hound” Clegane (Rory McCann).¬†Aidan Gillen¬†plays Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Master of Coin for King Robert’s Small Council.

Across the Narrow Sea, Viserys (Harry Lloyd) and Daenerys “Dany” Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) ‚Äďexiled children of the previous king that King Robert overthrew ‚Äď are on the run for their lives and trying to win back the throne. Dany is married to Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa), the leader of the Dothraki.¬†Iain Glen¬†plays exiled knight Ser Jorah Mormont, who is sworn to help and protect the siblings. Viserys has arranged the marriage between Dany & Drogo in exchange for the promise of the latter’s ferocious army in order to win back the throne. The way he looks at his sister as just an object to achieve his goals (even examining her naked body before presenting her to Drogo) is evident of his arrogant & self-importance and his single mindedness of getting the throne back. Drogo, a rough & silent king takes a liking to Dany and marries her, taking her roughly in evening sex sessions from behind. Dany learns to give pleasure from a Dothraki prostitute and soon wins over Drogo and is pregnant with his son.

King Robert visits the Starks at their castle & land along with his wife, oldest son & heir and the queen’s brothers Jaime & Tyrion. During the visit Robert tells his friend Ned about his proposal to unite the two families by having Joffery marry Sansa. Sansa herself is thrilled at this news although her parents don’t reciprocate this feeling. It is during this visit that Ned’s 10 year old son while climbing a tower sees Queen Cersei engaging in sex with her twin brother Jaime! They catch him in the act and Jamie speaks to him and pushes the young lad down to the ground, as they fear that the rest of the people will come to know of this little incestuous affair. The Starks are in despair over the little guy who is in a coma & as a result of the fall his legs are broken beyond healing. Ned is called away to the capital of King Robert’s kingdom to serve as the hand of the King, taking his two daughters with him while leaving his sons & wife behind. Jon Snow leaves to join the Night’s Watch at the wall protecting the 7 kingdoms.

11 Babies Hoax Story

In one of the most ridiculous stories that I have read online, I saw this pic in Facebook along with the information that a woman gave birth to 11 kids and allah is great, god is great. Check out the name of the Facebook account.

The hoax story started off, it seems in Nigeria, first circulated by tumfweko.com, a website that shares gossip around the world. It showed a photograph of 11 new born babies along with hospital staff claiming that they all were born to a woman in single delivery, calling it a miracle of god. This is the actual test “An Indian Woman gave birth to eleven 11 kids baby boys few days ago. Resources have been told that few of them were test tubes babies but it really seems strange at once. It was also rumored that 6 were twins. Doctors were really surprised, shocked and glad to have successful delivery. Well it‚Äôs a blessing of God who give 11 baby boys to one woman. 21st century record of 2012 year.”

Now the truth – the top part of the pic is true; I don’t know who the pregnant woman in the lower section is in the Facebook pic. The below pic is of staff of a Surat hospital (21st Century Hospital & Test Tube Baby Centre in Surat, India) and 11 babies born to different mothers on 11.11.11.

What the story, spun in the name of spreading the glory of religion did is get a bunch of believers to comment “yes god is great”! What a sorry figure god cuts if he/it needs such hoax stories to survive! The question I would ask is “What the fuck does god need with a football team?”

Anderson Injures Hand; Out Indefinitely

The Ottawa Senators season was dealt a massive blow when Craig Anderson suffered a serious cut while preparing food at his home late Wednesday following a victory over the Washington Capitals. GM Bryan Murray could be forced to go shopping for a goalie ‚ÄĒ with Monday‚Äôs trade deadline fast approaching – after the club‚Äôs No. 1 netminder suffered his injury which could possibly put him out for several weeks.

While the Senators confirmed Anderson is out ‚Äúindefinitely‚ÄĚ but is expected to make a full recovery, sources told the Ottawa Sun he‚Äôll be gone 10 days and possibly more, and has to be examined by a specialist. A source said the worst-case scenario for this type of injury is 6-8 weeks. A source said surgery was required on the 30-year-old Anderson, who was still in hospital Thursday. He was supposed to sign autographs at an Orleans car dealership Thursday night and didn‚Äôt show. The Senators are expected to recall goalie Robin Lehner from their AHL affiliate in Binghamton in time for practice Friday in Ottawa.

One of the NHL’s busiest goalies, he has played in 27 of the club’s past 28 games and 56 overall. A major part of the Senators’ success, Anderson has a 29-19-6 record with a 2.86 GAA and .913 save percentage. He’s also coming off a 32-save performance in the 5-2 victory over the Capitals. Backup Alex Auld, meanwhile, has started just seven games this season, going 2-3-2 with a 3.28 GAA and a .883 save percentage.

Lehner’s numbers with a young Binghamton team haven’t been sparkling, either. After helping the Baby Sens win the Calder Cup last spring, Lehner is 8-16-1 this season with 3.38 GAA and .905 save percentage. As the Senators prepare to face the Boston Bruins Saturday at home, Murray has to decide whether he’ll go get another goalie as insurance or stick it out with Auld and Lehner until Anderson is ready to return. The goalie market is thin Рpossible targets are Josh Harding, Evegni Nabakov or Antero Niittymaki.
