This is not a pug. It’s actually the world’s most annoying alarm clock.
He’s just spent the last 10 mins snorting in my ear, stepping on my head and trying to knock over the glass of water on the bedside table.
Now that I’m well and truly awake, looks like he’s going to settle down. The jerk.
Are there any other versions of your songs you like?
Well, Ray Charles’ version of “Yesterday”– that’s beautiful. And “Eleanor Rigby” is a groove. I just dig the strings on that. Like Thirties strings. Jose Feliciano does great things to “Help” and “Day Tripper.”
John Lennon would have been 73 years old today. Look back at our 1968 interview where the Beatle talks about his songwriting process and check out photos of John and Yoko in New York.
Brienne’s story is an adaptation of a traditionally male narrative, one that usually sidelines or victimizes female characters. She swears fealty to a woman, as male knights swear to their liege lord, because she respects that woman’s strength, her bravery and her kindness. She goes on a quest to save the beautiful maiden, but not to marry her or benefit from the quest in any way, but to return her to her mother. Because she cares for Catelyn, and because it is the right thing to do. It is a story of a woman, rescuing a woman, for the sake of another woman. It is a rare story where the mother, the young girl and the shieldmaiden are all given equal weight and worth. Brienne, despite taking on many stereotypically male traits, is not “one of the boys” or in any way dismissive of her gender as a group. She does not fit into the role that society has assigned for her, but she does not disparage those who do. She uses her strength and her skill to respect and help other women in ways that most men in Westeros would never even think to attempt, because she understands, more than any other knight, that women are truly worth something as individuals.
Game of Cribs - A baby GoT inspired mural I did for my son’s nursery. It has the Heart Tree, Stag, Dire Wolf, Lion, Squid, Three-eyed Raven, and of course a Dragon. Notice the dire wolf is sleeping with one eye open. Hope you (and he) like it!
Here’s a link to my original posting of it…
The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.
Favourite Movies: Forrest Gump.↳ “Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.”
