Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A thread about concerts.
« on: May 18, 2017, 01:27 PM »
Damn, I was reviewing the Davidson summer calendar and I have **** ton of concerts coming up:

-Metallica tomorrow
-Violent Femmes and Echo & the Bunnymen 7/15
-Foreigner and Cheap Trick two days later 7/17
-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 3 days after that 7/20
-Imagine Dragons 10/29 (my oldest son's first concert, will be a birthday gift)

And I'm actively looking for good prices for Billy Joel at Fenway (I drug my wife to both Pearl Jam shows there last summer and kind of have to pay her back) and U2 Joshua Tree tour.

Chris Cornell.

This one just hurts.  The man was only 52.

This one bums me out.  Been listening to SG, TotD and Audioslave all day to reflect on his career.  Only Eddie left for the lead singers from the bands (PJ, AiC, SG, STP and Nirvana) that defined my youth.

Also in this morning, FOX News Founder Roger Ailes

I've never been particularly attracted to Cate Blanchett (she's not ugly per se, but she's not Kate Beckinsale or Evangeline Lily to me), but there's something about her as Hela that's making me feel naughty in the pants.  >:D

I'd love to see a cameo from the Guardians sitting in the stands during the gladiator fight.

2016 can **** off.  Too many people I'd admired are gone, and most of them unexpectedly - Bowie, Prince, Rickman and now Carrie.  And while I'm not a huge fan of George Michael, I can admit he had some catchy tunes that I'd listen to once in awhile.

RIP Princess...

I'm having a hard time figuring out how I'm doing so poorly on pick-em this year.  44 right and 48 wrong.  I'm literally below 50/50.

I can't figure this league out at all this year.

A lot of ****** football.  There's literally only 3 or 4 games a week that are worth watching.  The product sucks, thus affecting the outcomes of games.

And the dickhead ****** ass **** clown of a commissoner wonders why the ratings are down.

This is on the Shop Disney Parks app with free shipping today for anyone interested.

Jon wouldn't be a legitimate, true-born Targaryen heir.  Bran is the legitimate heir to Winterfell.

If Rhaegar and Lyanna got married prior to his birth he would be.  There's precedent for Targaryens taking multiple wives, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

And at this point there's like, what?  One Beratheon left and last anyone saw him he was floating away from Sir Davos somewhere.  It seems to me the Game of Thrones is running really low on players, from the POV of the major houses of Westeros.

Gendry is a bastard and not a Baratheon.  He has no rightful claim to any Baratheon holdings unless legitimized by a king.  Ramsey was a bastard Snow until he was legitimized by Joffrey as reward for the Bolton's role in the Red Wedding.  Once legitimized, he became a Bolton and gained all rightful claims that came with it.

How the **** did Varys get from Dorne to the middle of the ocean on a ship so quickly?  You'd think he would just wait until Dany came ashore to meet up with her.

Absolutely fantastic season finale, although it could have used some White Walkers to reinforce the main threat to Westeros.

That was ******* awesome.  That's the episode I've been waiting for the last few weeks.  I thought the entire episode was taking place in the North, so I loved the opening scenes in Meeren. 

I'd also like for it to be explained how Daenerys figured out how to control her dragons.

My guess is the other two are following the lead of big brother Drogon, who she has control over (at least as much as she can have control over a large fire breathing reptile with anger issues).

Thanks to Pete for helping me (and several other posters) out with the May the 4th Disney droid! Super fast shipping and great communication!

Ditto.  Thanks again, Pete!

Fair enough, but I think we are in uncharted waters here. One of two things is happening:

This season the show is spoiling a ton of stuff from the next book(s); OR

The show is diverging into some kind of alternate universe Thrones which differs significantly from the literary version.

Given all the changes we have seen to this point, I'm leaning towards #2. Point being, I'm not sure they are using it as a roadmap anymore and have the freedom to organically change things that maybe serve the Tv storylines differently from those in the book.

Or not. Writers are crazy!   :D

I think it's a bit of both, actually.  The major events (Red Wedding, Battle of Castle Black, how the **** Dany finally ends up in Westoros, the final ending, etc.) will be very similar or exactly the same as the books.  It's the minor stuff using show characters instead of introducing new characters GRRM is found of (Jaime in Dorne, Sansa instead of fake Arya, etc.) that differs a bit.  Think of it like this - the TV show and book were for the most part the same for season 1.  Starting in season 2, the TV show went left at a fork in the road, the books went right, but ultimately both the TV show and books will end up back on the same road with the same ending.  They just took different ways to get there.
