Current Rotation: Sleigh Bells - Infinity Guitar

I first heard this song on a TV ad. I thought it was a Target ad, but after a quick google search it was actually a Windows Phone ad. It wasn't until they were featured on The Smoking Section, did I finally put a face to the song.

Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 9 Preview

Game of Thrones on HBO has been my weekly obsession even worse addiction this season. A show based on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice series. It's been a season full of bloodshed, backstabbing, lust, and did I mention bloodshed? Here are some of the parts I thought badass in itself.
  • A horse gets beheaded
  • A woman gets off sexually at the reciting of dragons' names
  • A guy gets his tongue ripped out out of his throat
  • A wolf rips a mans throat
  • A pimp teaches two whores how to do their job
  • An imp (small person) steals every scene he's in
That's just a couple of things I could think of at the top of my head. The show is smart, well written, and the child actors are far and beyond some of the best I've seen in a while. If Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister the Imp doesn't win an Emmy then they should just give all the Emmys to reality TV shows like Extreme Couponing and Mob Wives.

Here's a preview to Episode 9 coming this Sunday. If you haven't watched the previous 8 episodes then I suggest you do yourself a favor, and go watch them.

What Are You Doing?

I've been neglecting this blog for a whole number of reasons. Here's a short list of a few of them.

  • Alcohol
  • Twitter
  • Game of Thrones
  • Xbox 360 (LOL PSN)
  • Drunk Tweeting
  • Doctor Who
  • The Killing
  • Treme
  • Discworld
  • Listening to music
  • Alcohol
  • Recovering from hangovers
So basically, I've been drinking, playing video games, tweeting, and watching a lot of TV. Yeah I've been out socially, but that's a whole other crate of grenades. Stay tuned.
