    Eurovision SC 2019

    That was awesome. Katerine wasn't as good as she was in the semi-final, but I agree that she still deserved better and definitely not Greece's worst position ever in an ESC final. Arcade was nice, but didn't blow my mind. My faves were: Iceland, Norway and Slovenia (Slovenia's stage presence was godawful tho). Poland and Portugal were very nice too and should've definitely qualified. I still don't understand how San Marino managed to qualify. I liked the way they announced the results this year, very unpredictable and made me snort a few times. It was interesting to see the difference between televoting and jury voting, seems that the juries are way more politically biased than the public.

    @Imagineer Mine too! I was actually shocked at how good our entry is this year. Great voice and visually stunning as well. Go Greece! I haven't felt this strongly about a Greek entry since 2005.

    @Baki Right, I forgot about that. She was just too cocksure then, she was in complete denial when everything started crumbling. Idk, that seemed reasonable enough to me, she was sure that the last dragon would die too (I was kinda expecting it to die as well) and that Dany would never touch the civilians.

    That's my problem as well - the way it was done. If they had been building up to it and showed some of the madness that was lurking beneath in the previous seasons, then I would be ok with it, but she turned mad in a split second. And then we have the writers, one of them basically saying that well, she was always kinda mad and the current circumstances just brought it out... ~didn't you see how APATHETIC she was when her enemies were executed?~ (yes yes very indicative indeed) and the other saying that she got mad when she looked at the Red Keep, the symbol of everything that was taken from her, which btw I don't know if he noticed but at that moment it became entirely hers - as if that makes any sense whatsoever. I think she did plant some of these, there were definitely some green fires breaking out at places. It makes sense that she didn't think she was going to lose, after all they did kill one dragon, and she really didn't want her baby to die, so I can see why suicide didn't cross her mind. Yes, absolutely no complaint about the visual aspect of the episode. That screenwriting though.

    Well, that was... infuriatingly bad. When Jon doesn't kiss her back, she decides that she can only move forward by inspiring fear? Wtf. Yeah, if Jony boy doesn't love you then there's no love left for you in the world. The other kingdoms aren't like the North, the people there don't even know Jon Snow, but she acts as if even those people prefer him more than her. The city surrenders and instead of getting the throne she wanted all her life, she destroys it and rather than at least try to inspire people's love, she decides to kill them all in the most brutal way possible, even though all these seasons we saw her doing her best to protect the innocent, especially women and children. Honestly, her going mad is maddening. But aside from her character they also killed Jon's imo. Did he even say anything of importance this season? Because if he did, I truly didn't notice it. He just became Dany's yes-man. And what is this: he goes "ilysm" but then he can't even kiss her? Just f-ing say that you don't want to have a sexual relationship with her because she's your aunt. Say that you support her nevertheless. Like, when she told him "let it be fear then" and "people here don't love me" couldn't he say anything at all? "I believe in you, you can inspire love in these people" or "they don't even f-ing know me here, how can you say that they love me and not you?" or "if they get to know who you really are, you'll become the most loved queen ever". He just stared blankly all the time. Also, Arya should've died at least 4 times and Jaime another 3, but no, they were wearing their thick plot armour, together with Drogon. It's gotten so bad that I don't even care if they all die in the end. Ok, I need to calm down now.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Aah what a nice performance! Consistent throughout, no weird improvisations and trying to somehow squeeze that low chest voice in places where it doesn't belong, I've missed it!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    The song is meh, the album title is... weird to say the least, and I don't like the way she sings "I've seen the walls...", it seems that the weird voice she sometimes uses live is finally making an entrance into the studio. I do like the aesthetic of the video, though, and the photos look beautiful.

    @Imagineer I completely agree with you about Arya and the NK. I really don't understand how people are saying stuff like "the NK was such a formidable enemy, that a 14 year old girl could kill him with a stab" or "he didn't deserve to die like that". Ffs, she's been training for so many years in the most insane ways! If anyone could do it, it would be Arya. Imo that scene was just perfect. Yes it was very uncharacteristic of GoT that there were not many important deaths. I was expecting Sam (especially), Davos, Podrick, Tormund and Brienne to die. The ones that died, though (Theon, Jorah and Lyanna) died in the best way possible. And yes the wights breaking the stone tombs was kinda stupid - in the last season we saw that they easily contained one in a wooden box and carried it all the way down to King's Landing. I agree about the Dothrakis. Whyyy did they do that? I was expecting the dragons to be in the front, starting by scorching the first horde of wights to come, and then the Dothraki and Unsullied could deal with whatever managed to escape or came next. Poor baby Dothrakis.

    You're both right. To get them so far south would be pretty difficult though (they'd have to convince everyone there), but it would be easy to take over The Twins and prepare for the battle there, since Arya demolished the entirety of House Frey. They should've thought of that from the very beginning though (before Dany's armies came to Winterfell). I didn't mind Arya's sex scene at all, it did seem natural to me. She is a teenager, after all, she has experienced so much horrible stuff, she will possibly die in the near future, she's attracted to him and she wanted to have sex before she died. Seems reasonable enough to me. I agree that the dialogues were improved a lot (possibly by the change of screenwriters) and the episode was in general so much better than the first one. Also that song scene gave me those epic LotR vibes and I'm so freaking excited for what's coming next!

    Yes, but he didn't have much of a relationship with his brother either. I guess they just needed something to push him to reveal to Jon that he's the heir to the throne. I don't really remember there being a rule regarding who can ride a dragon. I thought it was more like if the dragon likes you then you can ride it, if not then bye. Maybe she thought that because she's close to Jon, the dragons will be ok with him riding them?! I'm not gonna lie, I'm slightly grateful for the sloppy screenwriting, because it makes me long for the next books so much more. Like, I don't even care if all the events will be the same (which they won't be), I NEED the books so I can get actual insight and the depth of GRRM's intricate storytelling and characterization. As you said, I'm just pleased that the visual and acting aspects are close to perfection and that I get to see how the story will end.

    No, I'm just saying that instead of going on trips, they could've gotten married. Or at least they could get married first and then go on a trip. Basically everyone was yapping about how he kind of broke their trust by giving up his title and bringing her there. A marriage would make it clearer that they are actually united and that Jon isn't her concubine. Yeah, I agree about Sam's father and brother. I was actually a bit surprised when he almost started crying. His reaction would've been more justified if she'd killed his mother and sister, that were decent human beings and loved and treated him as they should've.

    Game of Thrones

    @Baki Honestly. I agree about the political marriage as well, even Cersei and Euron are -supposedly- going to get married, but Jon and Daenarys, with the stakes being much higher, the White Walkers closing in and everyone bickering about his title, are going on day trips and whatnot. Ugh. And that stupid Tormund joke that everyone loved, as if his blue eyes (that you can't even make out their colour in the dark) are even remotely close to the wight/White Walker blue. Anyway, I missed it and even though it was a slow start, I'm so excited about the next episodes, hopefully they are going to make up for it. I'm loving all the memes it created, too.

    Reaction videos (to music)

    Oh, snap! Great April fool's joke, I only wish he cried as well at some point. I watched quite a few reaction videos when they all started reacting to NW, but after a bit I lost interest because most of them seemed to overreact in order to please their audience or just because there's something wrong with them (like a girl that was ACTUALLY sobbing spasmodically after listening to a few seconds of Floor's singing and continued so for the entire video ughh). I only watch ProgPiglet and x666xIronMaiden (he has done the entire NW discography), as they seem the most genuine to me. Sam's great at analysing vocals and even some of his videos about singers I rarely listen to can be interesting.

    @hunebedbouwer sb = abbreviation for somebody. Sorry to confuse you.

    I think it's mainly because of the absence of eyebrows. They can really change sb's appearance, dramatically even. Lovely picture nonetheless, she looks very happy! <3
