GOT Pre-Game

Big night tonight on Game of Thrones.  If you just have to have something to tide you over until 8:04 PM, here are a couple of items.

ShatonTV has been producing some quality podcasts on GOT and other shows for quite some time (It was indispensable for Westworld).  STV produces an instant take podcast after an episode then will take a deeper dive two days later.  Tuesday's podcast produced some rather penetrating observations and theories. 

One such observation was something missed in the actual script for the Season 7 finale:

Emerging from the frozen coastal forest, the ARMY OF THE DEAD comes in force. All of them, 100,000 strong, with hundreds of WHITE WALKER officer corps on their dead horses.
Then there is the matter of the crypts.  D&D are doing everything possible to tell everyone that something will happen in the crypts.  Will the Starks arise from the dead to attack the living, will the risen Starks defend the living, or will Tyrion and Varys get drunk and tell more cock jokes? The podcasts are on Iheartradio app as well.

Then there is the master of the Youtube review, Alt Shift X.  He dropped a new one yesterday that lives up to his usual high standards. 

Tonight should be fun to watch.  Longest battle scene in movie or tv history.

Who will die? Hmmm...... time to take a stab at that one:

Eddard: It's just time for him.
Sansa: just a premonition
Brienne: Arc is over unless she and Jaime hook up.
Gendry? Hmmm..... Nope.  Surprise ending could be Cersaid and Targeryan's kill each other off.  Leaves him as only Baratheon plus he and Arya are the union of Baratheon and Stark, almost poetic.
Hound? Nope.  We still have Cleganebowl.
Jaime? No, I think he and Arya still have dealings with Cersai.
Varys? Yup.
Tyrion? His chances are probably 50/50
Ser Jorah? Yup.  He's going down.
Aegon VI? Probably survives but I think Dany will go mad queen on him.  She won't believe his claim til she orders a dragon to burn him and the dragon refuses.
Sam? He has to be around to write the history.
Greyworm? He dead.
Tormund? Yup.  He should've died last year when they made their excursion to the Great White North but he was protected by plot armor.  Time for him to die bravely.  

Another thought, do the Lannister army and Golden Company move up to the Twins to meet whoever wins the Northern war?  What's interesting is how much smaller the armies in Westerors are when all this started.  There were over 100,000 Wildings, now they are almost extinct.  The Lannisters were over 40,000 men, much smaller force now.  The North fielded an army of 20,000 men when Robb Stark rode South, now they can't even reach 10,000.  The Tully army is no more.  These people have literally killed each other off while the AOD has merely grown. 

Armies not accounted for: Dorne, Freys, Second Sons.

AOD is Fonzie on water skis. Tonight is Brady Bunch in Hawaii.

GoT is greatest epic show of all time. Hate that it is ending after this season!

@3:40 PM.. Dang, if you think GOT is gay then you have either led a very sheltered life or you are just plain ignorant! Either way, tune in at 8 PM CST and be enlightened.

Looks like the show is going to go out with a powerful Womyn Strong! theme. Leftists were tweeting that the current POTUS is like the Night King and Arya is like despite the fact that the Night King toppled a border wall during his invasion.

Another reason why real history is better than this entry-level Hollyweird garbage that is intended to replace European history. Leftists can't separate TV from reality.

Well, fan predictions online, here and in your other thread pretty much sum up fandom. A little right, a little wrong... rinse and repeat. Great episode last night!

Very few major character deaths last night. Perhaps the augurers have forgotten that we have another big battle coming.

We all seemed to know that Arya would take down the Night King. Bran certainly knew it. Great moment: Hand moves for sword, sprint and leap, block choke, money shot. And semi-sweet Lyanna Mormont was granted a hero's death. For some reason, I objected to Dany's weeping over Jorah. The scene was more about her than about the death of a great man.

Against all odds--all odds!--it looked like Brienne and Jaime were still standing against the wall at the end. I'm sorry, but I still like the first encounter of Jon and the Night King more, and the Battle of the Bastards took place in the daytime: not as much opportunity for cheating our eyes.

Three words: Carice Van Houten.

Night King never been about fighting people one on one. He wasn't going to fight Jon.

For the love of God, will someone who is still sane kill this damn show and every stupid, breathless article and post and whatever about it? Jeez.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
