Great Oracle @AbdulMahmud01’s #HonestQuestion tweets got me thinking . My reply to the tweet also reminded me of a tweet thread I had planned on doing last night on Jealousy.

I think I will try and do it now since @aedcelectricity has struck again

I will start with myself and how I nearly hot entrapped in a jealous mood against a friend.

We served both masters, for at least 22 years now. But I was always the one doing stuff for the master. Never hoped for any form of reward back. I cherished the relationship above all 1/
I could wake at odd hours of the day and place a call to him and he’d immediately pick up and listen to what I wanted to say no matter how mundane it may sound. We would even discuss stuff as silly as #GOT series 2/

I would like to submit to the court that Arya has the best character arc in Game of Thrones #GOT.

In fact, may I also submit that she is indisputably the best Stark.... by the circumference of earth.
The breakdown:

- Arya loses her father
- Arya becomes a skilled fighter
- Arya loses her mother and brother
- Arya becomes a faceless person
- Arya avenges her house
- Arya kills Littlefinger the Snake
- Arya kills the Night King
- Arya travels the world

Undefeated queen.
People asking is this disputed? YES. There are some confused people out there who believe with their chest that Jon Stark is the best Stark.

He is not.

He was low key stupid. The Starks only survived really because of the women, but y'all don't want to have that conversation.

#Dreamteam für die Führung von @dieLinke:

Hoy hace 9 años que se inauguraba oficialmente el #FestivalScout de @scout_es
en Lorca.
Para nosotros un punto de inflexión.
Los scouts celebran su festival nacional de la canción en el castillo | La Verdad…
El 108 apostó por organizar exclusivamente con sus recursos humanos en ese momento,más decenas de antiguos scouter, el #Festivalscout.
La lluvia hizo acto de presencia. Nuestro coordi @Perriwy:
«Queda inaugurado el festival, ¡a refugiarse!» | #Lorca…
Queríamos ser de las primeras ciudades que organizaran un Festival federal de la Canción Scout por dos veces. Lorca es #CiudadScout declarada por su @AytoLorca por algo. Ya se hizo en 1997 en similares circunstancias cuando representando a @asde_exmu fuimos a #Calatayud #Zaragoza ImageImage

L’#expoWisigoths est une occasion en or de parler des "Barbares".
Ce terme, utilisé originellement par les Grecs, est souvent employé aujourd’hui dans la création artistique pour définir un guerrier solitaire ou une horde. #Boucherie
Alors empoignez vos scramasaxes, sellez votre fidèle poney alezan, parez-vous de votre peau de bête autour de la taille, et allons sur les chemins de la réception du "Barbare" dans la #CulturePop en compagnie de @MathieuS31
Le terme "Barbare" définit au départ celui qui ne parle pas la langue commune, donc l’Autre.
Mais bizarrement, cet élément sera peu repris dans la création fictionnelle du Barbare, au contraire de leurs caractéristiques physiques et sociales.

Good afternoon, @tlecaque on day 3: let's finally get to my main research subject, Raymond IV of Saint-Gilles, First Crusade leader and uncrowned king of the South (I'll justify that title the rest of this week, I promise)--but when we meet him, just a boy in a strange time. 1/ Raymond of Saint-Gilles fro...

TOLKIEN E O OCIDENTE -- J.R.R. #Tolkien, o autor de "O Senhor dos Anéis" (SdA), voltará às telas por um novo seriado do grupo #Amazon, que pretende aproveitar o vazio deixado pelo fim de "Game of Thrones" (na verdade, #GoT já aproveitara o vazio anterior, deixado por SdA).
Isso nos dá ocasião de refletirmos um pouco sobre a obra de Tolkien e sua influência sobre o Ocidente. Por Tolkien não foi apenas o criador de uma "mitologia pop". Na verdade, o propósito do autor era bem mais ambicioso: criar uma mitologia propriamente ocidental e católica.
Tolkien é um dos autores do chamado "renascimento católico inglês", que conta também com o Cardeal Newman (canonizado no último 13/10/2019), Chesterton, Hillaire Belloc entre outros.

#Qanon post #310 also about #Pensacola speech about the military! There was a shooting at a military base in Pensacola this weekend almost two years to the day. News unlocks the map. We need to read these crumbs to show what’s coming #ProjectLookingGlass?!
😳 #Qanon in post 316 calls out @realDonaldTrump’s speech at #Pensacola. Listen to his speech. Thank you for your SACRIFICE. Can they see two years ahead via #ProjectLookingGlass? #MartialLaw on the 11th to be the #Redpill that leads to #TheGreatAwakening?
Since Q called out the time stamp on this post, it is also possible that Marshall Law could be instituted on 12/31 of this year. Anons, what do you think is the significance of the time stamps?

#GameofThrones won 12 #Emmys last night. This thread has a couple of our favourite #GoT posts!

#MagheramorneQuarry, #NorthernIreland, is the set for #CastleBlack and #TheWall in #GameofThrones The #quarry wall is used as a backdrop and effects make it look huge.
The site's limestone was used to make cement. #NS has a limestone quarry and cement plant in Brookfield.

#GameofThrones calls it dragonglass but it's really obsidian. It often forms when lava instantly cools from coming into contact with water. It's been used for thousands of years in jewelry, weapons and tools. It's still used in knives because it's much sharper than steel.

Abrimos hilo sobre #VFX, donde muestro planos de películas antes y después del trabajo de efectos visuales, y os enseño el proceso por pasos en #GIFs animados. ¿Va?
Empezamos con esta escena de #DoctorStrange. Aquí podéis ver qué es real y qué es digital.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine
Seguimos con #TheMartian. Podéis ver que se rodó en un set bastante completo y que digitalmente se añadieron el paisaje marciano del fondo, los efectos atmosféricos y la corrección de color. Aquí por pasos y capas.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine #VFX #EfectosVisuales #GIFs
Continuamos con varios planos de #AliceInWonderland (2010) de Tim Burton. Como veis en ocasiones hay sets de rodaje, pero en otras lo único que se conserva del plate rodado es a las actrices y poco más.

A weekend thought for you.

I did a video about this a couple years ago.. but “coincidences” keep happening.

Had to revisit..

There’s a chance that the creator of “The Simpsons,” Matt Groening, is a real life time traveler...

Buckle up.

A thread..
It’s all so subtle.. On Episode 3 of the ninth season, titled “Lisa’s Sax,” which aired on October 19th, 1997.

For no reason at all, in the middle of the episode Marge is holding a book titled “Curious George and the Ebola Virus”

17 yrs later in 2014, Ebola took over the world
Season 10.. Episode 5.. Titled “When you dish upon a Star”.. which aired on November 8th, 1998

A still image appears on the screen.. “20th Century Fox.. A division of Walt Disney Co.”

19 years later Disney actually bought 20th Century Fox

Poucas vezes eu vi um deputado federal tão burro e incoerente. Essa merece uma thread. Vamos lá.

1. A fusão entre AT&T e Time Warner lembra a compra da Time Warner pela AOL em 2000, naquela que tinha sido a maior transação corporativa da história. Mas os problemas são graves...
2. O maior inimigo do capitalismo é a concentração do mercado em poucas mãos (monopólio/oligopólios).

A compra da TW pela AT&T, segundo os princípios liberais, é um crime capital porque reúne sob o mesmo controlador dois grupos líderes em setores de uma mesma cadeia.
3. O Bozo Jr. - que certamente nunca leu uma orelha de livro de economia ou economia política - passa longe disso, embora bata no peito para se dizer liberal, capitalista.

Ele deveria fazer um vídeo para alertar sobre o perigo que representa essa fusão. Mas não chega nem perto

I am very late to Game of Thrones; I just started watching over Memorial Day weekend. I am on Season 3 — no fucking spoilers, please. I have a major bone to pick with all the full frontal nudity: there is a glaring problem. Everyone’s pubic area is very well groomed.
They’ve gone to all the trouble to create realism in some aspects of this magical world with thoughtful, meticulous sets, costumes, hair and makeup. They make the hair on people‘s heads dirty and overgrown which makes sense given the time period...
...when impeccable hygiene just wasn’t possible, even for the high born. When I see not only a well manicured pubic area, but a puss that’s clearly been waxed (I’ve even seen a landing strip on one of the brothel workers), it’s totally preposterous!

Having spent a couple days on exceptionally bad clothing, it’s time for a #TailorSnarkWars palette cleanser.

Well dressed men of size, a photo stream.

Big, tall, both, burly.
Not skinny bois.
Though we love our Chrises, not this thread.
Formal & casual.

Kristian Nairn (Hodor)
(#GoT has been great - they cast diverse body sizes & shapes. So...)

Kristian is 7’ tall. He favors bright plaids with tee shirts and jeans. (This is perfectly acceptable casual wear.)
Note shoulder seams (at top of arm): a little low on his arm, but that’s movement fabric.
Again, it’s the geometry of fabric: an arc is longer than a line.

Suit jacket, intentionally oversized because this is a casual look, with jeans & Converse. That jacket will button.
If this was formal? Might wanna pad the shoulders a bit, but it’s not. No cuffs, cuz tee.

It stuns me that people purporting to be Democrats or "resisters" are still devoting their time to attacking @RepAOC. This is such a blatant embrace of GOP talking points. If you don't like change, you're in the wrong party. And if you can't Google the work she's done, be quiet.
If you claim to support @SpeakerPelosi, then assume she knew what she was doing when she put @RepAOC on major committees. Here's an example of AOC's skilled takedowns on the House floor:

Here's @RepAOC as the youngest person in House history to chair the House at Pelosi's behest:

AOC becomes the Speaker of the House — momentarily…

•Game of Thrones, a n̶o̶v̶e̶l̶ thread•
One week has passed & I’m still disappointed in the #GOT finale but that doesn’t mean I didn’t love & appreciate the journey 🗺 📺
Think of it this way; much like a breakup...While it’s fresh, you may feel disappointed, surprised, angry, betrayed, hurt, sad. Mourning the loss is normal. Evenings (around 9 p.m. ET) are the most difficult, for the night is dark and full of terrors
You may wish to seek revenge, adding your ex’s name to a list of others who’ve done you wrong, make plans to flay or neuter them, burn their house down, even💀

Taking a deep look into #GameofThrones you will discover that the story has never been about the Iron Throne.
We all assumed that the story was about who will sit on the Iron throne, but NO, it wasn't about that.
Pg. 1.
Take a look at the Journey that brought each and every key characters to season 8, you will discover that it all happened for a purpose and I think the Lord of Light played a huge role in making it happen.
Everyone who survived till S8, survived for a purpose.
#gameofthrones was never about who will rule the Seven kingdoma, I believe the story and journey has always been about the long winter and defeating the night king.

The armies been gathered by Daenarys was very important for defeating the Night King and white walkers

You've might heard I published the last and FINAL update to the #GameOfThrones death count graphic here:

I was a naive, tiny baby when I first pitched this graphic 5 years ago shortly after season 4. Here's a lil thread about how this all started:
*extreme 80-year-old narrator voice* It was the summer of 2014. I had just graduated from NU and joined WaPo, and lil ol Shelly Tan was eager to pitch her own major graphic for the first time.

"Another character bit the dust on GoT. What if I counted all of them?"

You fool
I pitched the idea. Eds were interested but not convinced about the feasibility of counting everything. (NO KIDDING I SHOULD'VE LISTENED.) They said if I could get the data, they were in.

For the next 6 months, I slowly counted the first 4 seasons in my spare time...

Finally saw the #GoTFinale while in Japan thanks to the technological assistance of friends and I am now going to barf out a thread about it.
Those of you who live under rocks should avoid this if you haven’t seen the last episode yet.
The hamfisted political allegory of the last two episodes perfectly encapsulates middlebrow bourgeoisie showrunner Deep Thoughts about “power” i.e. banal horseshoe theory

1/ With #GameofThrones done, there’s a lot of talk about #HBO’s post-GOT future. The challenge is the answer seems paradoxical or contradictory, even though it’s neither.

Thrones is an unprecedented hit; a homerun worth not 4 but 100 runs. But HBO will be thrive after it.
2/ HBO’s future slate is *substantially* stronger than that of any traditional or digital network – even though it produces significantly less than Netflix and Amazon, and roughly the same of Starz and Showtime. But can anything replace Thrones?
3/ Next 3 years of HBO:
-JJ Abrams first co-run series in a decade
-Joss Whedon’s first co-run series in a decade
-The Watchmen
-Jordan Peele/Abrams' Lovecraft Country
-His Dark Materials / Golden Compass
-Time Travel’s Wife
-1-2 Thrones spinoffs
-More Westworld
+Lots more

I doubt many subjected to the Milgram experiment were pleased to discover they could be inhuman.

Similarly, #GOT fans are angry to discover they were backing a privileged monster, even though she’s been using a weapon of mass destruction to roast her enemies alive for years.
All that nonsense about “sure, but the character arc was too sudden”: what was the character arc like for Churchill when he ordered the firebombing of 200,000 civilians in Dresden, or of Henry Truman when he ordered a second city destroyed by an atomic bomb?

No lengthening of the story would have eased the shock here or made indiscriminate slaughter seem narratively “more natural,” “believable,” or “correct.”

Ok, one more briefly. #GoT

The advantage of hereditary monarchy is it’s EXCELLENT for continuity of government. You can do very long term projects if you’ve got reasonable predictive capacity for 2-5 decades out.
(It has 100s of other problems.)
King Bran is kicking the can.
Because there will be another war of succession when Bran dies. No 3👁R needed. It could be next week (It’s not like King’s Landing is ADA compliant, or even structurally safe) or in 5 years (Iron Bank gets tired of being called out for lying) or 40 (he gets old & dies.)
So they’ve now set up the Elected Leadership without an Elected Body problem, which has been causing civil wars in the Western world since... Charlemagne died.

But most strikingly, when the Barons got tired of Henry II’s brats (Magna Carta) or the batshittery of the Stuarts...
