MacArthur! The reason for vanishing? We bought “Game of Thrones” and watched all ten episodes. Then I watched much of them again, since we (me, bro, German Science Babe) talked a lot during the first viewing.
I knew before they ever started filming that Dinklage would be an unbeatable Tyrion Lannister:
Mr. Dinklage is now tied for second in the Top Three “bringing an imaginary character to life” List. Numero One-o is, of course, Jeremy Brett’s Sherlock Holmes. In theory he could someday be tied, but it’s not bloody likely. And he’ll only be topped when you can improve upon perfection:
Tied for second, in playing this guy…
…is Patrick Warburton:
Honorary mention, as always, to Matthew Lillard as Scooby-Doo’s bestest pal:
The studio submitted him for an Academy Award “nom” for that role. He deserved one for his noms in the movie.
Season 2 is reaching its end. You will love it. Dinklage getting more epic every time he pops up on screen.
Hopefully they’ll put it up for sale pretty quickly. It’s one of the few things worth paying full retail for. But they’ll probably wait til near season three.
I didn’t see Scooby Doo but I’ve been enjoying catching up via Youtube clips. I thought the belching and f**ting contest was hilarious, too!
I also wanted to say that Game of Thrones looked like a great show and I wanted to see it someday, but I hesitated because I was afraid Edo would say something like, “You. Haven’t. Seen. Game. Of. Thrones. Oh. My. GAAAAAWWWWWD.”
Is this safe for work? I don’t even know.
Burping and farting humor gets “stale” pretty fast for me. That said, you’re right…the Scooby/Shaggy fart-off is hilarious.
And “Game of Thrones” is on a pay channel, surely not even edo would scorn you for not having seen it.
We did consider subscribing to HBO just for G.O.T. and dropping the subscription whenever possible. Too much like work, though.
Here’s a kind of cool tv commercial that’s running now:
Translation. Something like:
“Daiwa House’s shake resistance system reduces the force of shaking to less than 1/8th. Daiwa House: strong against earthquakes.”
Text in white says, “Shindo 6 in progress.”
[The earthquake scale in Japan (in addition to the earthquake magnitude, a separate scale) is the power of shaking measured in “Shindo”, with Shindo 7 being the highest.]
Huh. That’s very interesting. No doubt Japan’s seismology is state-of-the-art.
