"Hear me, Daenerys Targaryen. The glass candles are burning. Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun’s son and the mummer’s dragon. Trust none of them. Remember the Undying. Beware the perfumed seneschal."
~Quaithe, A Dance with Dragons

Oh my god! I can’t believe I completely missed this… A TV movie with Benedict Cumberbatch and Ruth Wilson, two actors who play my beloved sociopaths Sherlock Holmes and Alice Morgan.

Game of Thrones: New Faces for Season 4

Luther fans, rejoice: Indira Varma joins the cast as Ellaria Sand! Even without watching the trailer I can totally see her playing the part. She has that strength and beauty I would imagine in the Red Viper’s paramour.

imageSpeaking of, Pedro Pascall takes on Prince Oberyn Martell. I don’t know who I imagined for the role… but it wasn’t him. Watching the trailer, I couldn’t tell who he was and knowing he once played an ASA in The Good Wife doesn’t really help. But we’ll see.

imageMichiel Huisman to replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis?! I mean no offense to the fans, I don’t even know who the Huisman dude is, I’ve just grown accustomed to the previous Naharis.

imageAnd leaving the most exciting news for last: Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris! Does this man even need an introduction?

imageOh oh oh! I also hear Icelandic band Sigur Ros will be making a cameo. At Joff’s wedding mayhaps?

"Mitigation explains one of the great anomalies of plane crashes. In commercial airlines, captains and first officers split the flying duties equally. But historically, crashes have been far more likely to happen when the captain is in the "flying seat." At first that seems to make no sense, since the captain is almost always the pilot with the most experience. But think about the Air Florida crash. If the first officer had been the captain, would he have hinted three times? No, he would have commanded—and the plane wouldn’t have crashed. Planes are safer when the least experienced pilot is flying, because it means the second pilot isn’t going to be afraid to speak up."

Excerpt from Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers. When I reached this section (p.60-61) I just couldn’t help but chuckle… MJN had it right!

Yoohoo, anyone?

Without giving away any spoilers, any hint at some twist: is it worth catching up on the rest of How I Met Your Mother’s final season? I bailed after that episode where Ted was with the Mother in the lighthouse and Otis Redding was playing. While that was nice-ish, I just could not stand Barney & Robin anymore.

Adding the last bit not to be a hater but to give a gauge of what I’m after.

People who aren’t evil but have evil sounding names— Cabin Pressure edition. I was going to use this as my Facebook cover but I eventually decided on Qikiqtarjuaq. Don’t tell Mrs. Dimmond though. Or Arthur.

Random Appreciation Post: David O. Russell

Last year it was Silver Linings Playbook; this year, American Hustle; and three years prior (though I haven’t seen it yet), The Fighter. You sir, are a wicked genius. A paragon of reinvention. I would throw all the awards at you if you didn’t have them all already.

"Usually if you’re given something, say, a cup of tea for example, it’s customary to say thank you. However you don’t then go on and thank the kettle, the cup, and the milk, the cow, the tea picker."

HOLY MOTHER OF DRAGONS. I’m a rabid fan of Ben’s but I’d sooner spend this money to watch him in a play or meet him in a convention. But then again, to each his own.
