TV MEME: [5/5] Male characters - Freddie Lyon

It makes it more real, seeing the boom! The mechanics of how we bear witness, because that’s what we do, what one tries to do. Reveal fleeting moments of history, not with apology, not as it is now! Endless static newsreel, a man who never leaves his desk, delivering the story as if it’s the dry, five-minute warm-up act to Hancock’s Half Hour!

it is like, mouse brown, the most boring of all hair colours.  but the older i get the more i come to terms with this reality.  it sucks cuz most people in my family have either black hair or super blonde hair and yet i am stuck in between.  quite a shame.  
also notice my soundproofing/ dampening techniques - blankets and cardboard - works very well i can get a very clean vocal take in this room

The Nun Who Got Addicted to Twitter

“My superior is a gamer.” Sister Helena Burns said, laughing. “You know you’re a media nun when your superior is a gamer.” 

You might not expect nuns to be experts on Twitter, Facebook, and multi-player video games, but Burns defies all expectations. With 13,790 Twitter followers and counting, the Daughter of St. Paul calls herself a “media nun”: A woman religious with a calling to communicate the word of Christ, in any way she can.
And yes, there is a gamer-superior in her convent.

“She has this souped-up computer,” Burns continued. “She gets her own little ministry out there. Once people get to know she’s a nun, they have questions, or they ask for prayers. But you do have to clean up your language when Sister Irene’s out there.”

I imagine Sister Irene sitting in front of a sleek desktop with neon LED backlights, wearing her bright yellow Grado headphones and concentrating intensely on a multi-player RPG. It’s a funny image—there’s such a symbolic disconnect between the stereotypical idea of a nun and a basement-dwelling teenager who loves World of Warcraft. That’s what’s so fascinating about these sisters and their order: They defy stereotypes about who participates in Internet culture, and how.
So how does a nun use social media?

Which way do you prefer your character to die? [ x ]

Oberyn Martell wants to kill everyone whose last name is Lannister.

 A Crown for a King; A Rose for a Queen

If there’s one event that the fashionistas of Westeros are all looking forward to, it’ll be the big, royal wedding between Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell. 

"It was majestic, it was shimmering," said Jack Gleeson, who played the teenage despot. "I think that’s what Joffrey likes, something ostentatious and grand."

But there are hints everywhere — even in the complementary crowns made for the king and his bride — that Joffrey is getting more than he bargained for with Margaery. Dornish roses are creeping stealthily around and over Joffrey’s crown; and then, there’s also the small matter of Margaery’s wedding dress. Every rose has its thorn, and the bride’s extravagant rosette skirt gives way to a decidedly dangerous bodice. x

“With this kiss I pledge my love!” Joffrey declared in ringing tones. When Margaery echoed the words he pulled her close and kissed her long and deep. Rainbow lights danced once more about the High Septon’s crown as he solemnly declared Joffrey of the Houses Baratheon and Lannister and Margaery of House Tyrell to be one flesh, one heart, one soul.
