    Well, I read the books 1.5 years ago and was still in shock after the episode. It was so awesomely done. Fan reactions are amazing.

    Also, maybe we should warn about spoilers? I know there are people who haven't watched the episode yet, so...

    I don't think anyone's actually said any spoilers, just that something big happens and people's reactions were funny.

    Pretty much. They'll find out what "Red Wedding" means in time.

    My parents came downtown today to meet me for lunch.... we went to Native Foods Cafe - what an awesome place!! Super tasty & super healthy vegan food. Soooo good!!! http://www.nativefoods.com/. Also, they celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary this past week... they were 21 & 22 when married in 1956. Wow...long time! But they are one of the best suited (to one another) couples that I've ever known. :cool:

    sageoftruth wrote:I'm still catching up on the Game of Thrones HBO series. I heard they just showed the red wedding part. My mom sent me a funny compilation of reactions from people who hadn't read the book. A bunch of them think this scene was concocted by HBO, rather than George RR Martin and many are even refusing to continue watching it. They think it was some stunt pulled by HBO for the sake of being edgy. I kind of wish I hadn't already read the books so I could be surprised too.


    GAME OF THRONES SPOILER ALERT!

    I was only pissed by how they butchered Robb's wife. In the books, she isn't even in attendance so clearly the choice to take her out with multiple daggers to her belly and unborn wee one were all for the tv series and not part of the written version. The entire scene is such a jaw-dropping and pivotal part of the story but it's impact was somewhat lost (for me anyways) by the unnecessary, graphic depiction of her execution.

    Fuck Hollywood :bitch:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I agree Rob. My first words on that scene were "well, she isn't supposed to be there". However, considering that the chick married to Robb is a COMPLETELY fabricated character compared to the one in the books, I'm actually quite pleased that they killed her off :twisted: I was getting very tired of her character. Other than that, I was actually really pleased over all with the Red Wedding; it was probably my most - anticipated scene in the series. There's also an artist named Matteo Bocci who several years ago sent this to Martin as fan art; I've always loved this, it captures the scene perfectly to me.

    Is anyone else a little annoyed that Coldhands has not made an appearance in the series? I'm hopeful that they're not going to leave him out, but he technically should have shown up by now :evil:

    Love that artwork but would like a bit more light shed on the 'musicians' in the rafters. Was disappointed at how that part was played down. Love how, in the book, a couple characters noticed that the 'band' weren't terribly gifted. Then we learned why :lol:

    SPOILER ALERT!


    As far as I recall, Coldhands first appearance is just very briefly with Sam and Gilly just as they reach the wall which they haven't yet (not counting tonight of course as I've yet to see this week's show) and then isn't really featured until Bran & Co. hook up with him on the other side.
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Gah....since I reconnected with tons of college friends over my past reunion weekend, as well as several high school friends recently - I decided it was finally time to create a facebook account with my real name for my non-metal friends (as well as all my extended family). Here's the deal - I swore I'd never go on fb, but after the first cruise, I decided to join and it has been a ton of fun having a "place" like that to communicate (about metal gigs and such) with metal friends from all over. So, now with two accounts - it is cool to have these two "places" with two relatively different groups of people on each....but I can tell already that if I want to keep up with both - that is a lot. The other downside I realized is that the iPhone fb app can only be logged in to one "account" at a time - wish there was some workaround on that, but don't think there is. Regardless - I'm glad to connect again with so many people - I just have to monitor my time on it and see how this whole 2 account thing pans out. :P

    Haha - I guess we're different then about the "sharing info" aspect of facebook - doesn't bother me a bit. Actually - I'm way more TMI (too much info! :lol: ) here overall probably. You don't have a problem with being on here though and it is way more "public," don't ya think??

    So, a local metal friend of mine went to Mojoe's in Joliet (hour from Chicago) last night to see Melechesh and he said there were maybe 60 people there tops. :evil: Why bands are booking that place - I just don't get. I love Melechesh and would have loved to have seen them, but didn't want to hoof it to Joliet, plus I work late on Tuesdays, so I woulda had to change my schedule. In other gig news, another friend and 70K alum told me she wants to see Hawkwind in October with me, so that is way cool - stoked!

    Do tell! (go on forever ;) :P )
    Seriously though, I still don't entirely get your aversion to fb re your "privacy" per se. For example, if I post on my "metal" Laura account (the one I started since the 2011 cruise for metal friends) stuff like song links, pix from gigs and such - do I care (even in the slightest) if that makes my life less private and perhaps even open to some diabolical big brother scrutiny? :P
    Nope.

    Nope.


    For reasons, I once deleted about half of my facebook "friends". Ever since, I've been much more aware of the kind of information I post there. I don't mind the government finding out (as a federal employee, I have to give a lot of personal private information), but I do mind certain people knowing about my daily life, habits and whereabouts.

    Tell me more. ^^^
    Re whereabouts - a friend who had a few stalkers, this was an issue. Shit - I post so much stuff about what gigs & such I'm at (here & on fb) but srsly don't think/worry about it too much. As far as very personal & private info goes - I don't have (too) much to hide (so to speak) - most of that resides in my head & no where else anyway :twisted: :lol: - so never thought/worried about that too much either.

    I post a lot about where I've been (like all the cruise-related photos/statuses I've done), but I try to never post stuff about where I'm going to be (other than concerts, I guess). I'm WAAAY more relaxed about it now (which is also why I add pretty much everyone cruise-related).

    Also, with the new facebook algorithms that show you the updates from those with whom you have the most contact, I think you just need to use a little bit of common sense and accept that whatever you post on facebook (or tweet, for that matter) is public. So I post mostly silly stuff.

    Thanks for the response ^^^.
    So much to say on this perhaps it deserves its own thread (privacy issues/public & private information, surveillance, govt knowledge, info tracking, fb, & so on).
    Just one thought for now - I've attended some programs (given by work security staff and the CPD) about the kind of surveillance & the like (on various levels) that takes place in a big American city like Chicago (particularly since 9/11). It is quite astonishing really...and here's my feeling about it in a nutshell - I am glad it exists. No true personal offense meant to people here like Blumpkin & Dan - but I just feel myself so polar opposite on many things they have issues with.

    Yeah, I might agree. Though I really can't say, since I don't live in the US.

    Btw, I just noticed you have Cat Stevens in your signature. :cheers: :cheers: Nice!

    Laura, I agree that this is not the place for the discussion. I also agree that we think about things differently. I have a problem with the fundamental beliefs that allow the thoughts presented.

    Rather than get into those arguments, let's start simple, with something that actually is on-topic with the thread.

    Thanks for the link. I liked it. It was cautionary without ramming anything down your throat. From the sound of it, it seems to concern how much you cherish keeping your shadow info private from those who you friend (I'll need to look up what shadow info comprises of one more time).

    Noticed TEDTalks on Netflix. Interesting information, but just because someone is smart, don't assume they are right.

    And on and on it goes... :roll:

    Thankful that these 2 clowns had no idea what they were doing and allowed RCMP to control their every move so we didn't get a Canadian version of the Boston tragedy.

    Beyond all that, I just wish the fucker hadn't had any heavy metal affiliation as I'd just rather we didn't get any more bad press. Why couldn't he have been a country or Bieber fan?

    The televised story I watched here called it 'Satanic Rock' and he co-wrote songs titled "In League With Satan" (not sure if cover of Venom or title rip-off), "End of the World", "Doom Machine" and something else somewhat metal sounding but I couldn't actually hear any of the music so can't say what it sounded like.

    From the 70,000 Tons of Metal FAQ:
    Can I attend if I am pregnant or just had a baby?

    Guests who will have entered their 24th week of pregnancy by the beginning of, or at any time during the cruise or cruisetour will NOT be permitted to sail. Infants sailing on a cruise must be at least six (6) months old as of the first day of the cruise. For more information on the infant policy please view the Age Requirements.


    From gnoff's calculations, the cutoff for the 24 weeks rule was August 16. It is now August 27 and I've yet to "slip one past the goalie" (as Kevin would put it), so it's looking more likely that Mere and I will be joining everyone in January! :wank:

    Of course, some kick ass announcements would help with getting us to book as well. ;)
