Which Character Are You?

Ever wonder if you’re the hero or the villain? Or just who exactly you are? Thanks to Tumblr, Google Images, and the Internet in general, now you can have a little better of an idea with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). (Image Source) So what is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator? The MBTI is a psychological questionnaire that helps categorize people into different personality types to help explain how people perceive the world. While you can’t put people into boxes, a personality usually fits quite nicely…

Bran Stark in Season 5

Spoilers! OK, no, not really. Just in case we lose track of time and forget that the children actors of Game of Thrones are indeed aging–and quickly–here’s a great little look back at Bran from season 1 through 4 and what an imgur user believes he’ll look like for Season 5. Well played, well played. Thanks to Nerd Approved for sharing that on Facebook!

What It’s Like to Live Spoiler-Free Post “Game of Thrones”

In a world of shocked Social Media Enthusiasts determined to ruin it for you. Last night marked the grand finale of the fourth season of “Game of Thrones” and, according to the World Wide Web, it was a shocker. As for this writer? Well, I’m comfortable assuming it was chock full of those classic George R.R. Martin induced “WTF Moments.” But I can’t technically say that I know with any certainty. Because I haven’t seen that last four episodes of the season. Because  reasons. But…

Father’s Day is Sunday…And So Is The Game of Thrones Finale

HBO wants to wish Dad’s everywhere a Happy Father’s Day, and also: don’t forget to tune in for the grand, sweeping season finale of Game of Thrones.

Like we really needed the reminder.  As season four of the epic fantasy series wraps up,  show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff have been persistent in letting people know that this finale is the “best finale [they’ve] ever done, bar none.” In fact, the episode in question — chillingly titled “The Children” — has been submitted for two Emmy’s: Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup. Though every episode of this phenomenal season has set a new viewing record every week, “The Children” is the first ever submitted for Emmy consideration.  Clearly, Weiss and Benioff are fairly confident that the cast and crew have truly outdone themselves this time.  In a statement, the duo praised the hard work of everyone on set saying, “The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new cues from Ramin Djawadi – all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced.”

All this to say, get your Father’s Day priorities straight and be ready to tune in for the 66 minute finale, this sunday on HBO at 9pm/8c. Happy Father’s Day…Winter is Coming.

Meanwhile, On Tumblr: Sleeping Beauty is the New Regina George

Who doesn’t love a good “Mean Girls” reference every now and then? The Tumblr account Dopey Beauty started this meme/gif of Mean Girl Aurora. And it is a beautiful thing. We’re pretty sure even Tina Fey would be amused by what she’s inspired. Probably. Buzzfeed loves Mean Girl Aurora so much they have an entire article featuring their favorite Sassy Sleeping Beauty insults. We don’t blame them.

Excuse Us While We Fangirl…The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is Back! (Briefly)

A little over a year ago wrapped one of the most impressive youtube series we’ve ever had the pleasure of viewing…and they’ve just released an update! The incredible youtube series, co-produced by Bernie Su and Hank Green (of Vlogbrothers fame), launched back in March of 2012 as a modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice. Starring the amazingly talented Ashley Clements as Lizzie Bennet, a 24 year old mass communications grad student vlogging her way to her thesis, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was a masterful,…

Youtube Rec: Those “Game of Thrones” Wildlings Are Badass…But What Are They Exactly?

So you’ve never read the series (A Song of Ice and Fire), but you love Game of Thrones

…yet no matter how thorough, the show creators can’t give you all the details of that rich background George R.R. Martin has created. It just can’t happen in 10 episodes at an hour long each. Which is something of a shame because there’s a lot of really fascinating subplots which occur in the book that, naturally, don’t make the cut to adaptation. Sometimes that’ll leave you with questions, and sometimes it leaves you entirely ignorant of pretty cool extraneous info.

Prime example? The Wildlings. There’s plenty which is hinted at and revealed about the self-titled “Free People” during Jon Snow’s time with them in season 3, and so far in Season 4, we’ve even met with those freaky cannibalistic Thenns. But did you know the Thenns aren’t actually Wildlings? Or they are to people South of The Wall, but they don’t identify with The Free People. Sound confusing? Check out our youtube rec of the week from Emergency Awesome! This guy does a phenomenal job breaking down the complex nature of society North of The Wall and filling viewers in on all those tidbits which just weren’t relevant to the Game of Thrones narrative.
