Game of Thrones S03: My Understanding so Far
This is Daario??? Noooooooooo :(
One of my biggest gripes with the Game Of Thrones adaption is that they took so many colorful characters with very unique appearances and genericized the hell outta them.
It’s like they gave the Lannisters blonde hair and the Targaeryans white-blonde hair, dusted off their hands and cheerfully called it a day. Outside of King Robert and Gendry they didn’t bother giving any of the Baratheons black hair (not even Stannis or Shireen or anybody, what the hell), and like two-thirds of the male cast has the exact same close-cropped haircut with varying degrees of clean-shaveness/vague stubble, with the remaining third having generic long hair. It really adds to the confusion new folk have being able to tell the dozens of characters apart, and takes away from the characters! And don’t even get me started on the Others/White Walkers being turned from pale, frozen elf-like folk into generic ugly zombie-troll dudes. Any Night’s King who’d wanna marry that has got some interesting tastes.
Like, I know some of the book descriptions of things are really weird and outrageous sometimes, and maybe they wanted to save on costume & makeup time, but there’s a lot of interesting, flavorful fantasy stuff in ASoIaF, and the GoT show’s just turned most of it into standard medieval dullness, a sea of browns and greys and blacks where there should be a whole rainbow of variety. I mean, I still enjoy the show for the most part, but it’s definitely lacking in some of the subtler and more colorful details.

Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.I have regained my faith.
Part Two of my Tour Of The Universe scans, with a few other odds and ends and silly things thrown in! This stuff was all ridiculously hard to scan, because it’s a large book that didn’t fit my scanner well and there was a lot of two-page spreads. Part One is here.
As mentioned in this previous post, I decided to scan some of the illustrations from this old book of my dad’s, Tour Of The Universe, an insanely cheesy scifi fake travelogue from 1980! Very little of this thing appears to be online, so I decided to fix that a bit!
Ridiculous and Lawl Space Boobies as it can be, some of the art really is delightful, and it really tickled my imagination when I was younger. The day I stop loving kitschy old-school scifi is the day I die. Part Two is here.
can we just talk about the explosion on the smothers brothers for a sec
so pete’s hair catches on fire and his hearing is permanently damaged but can we take a closer look at everyone else’s reactions
the explosion caused a cymbal to cut open keith’s arm
roger cowers and gets away from the explosion
