Let’s start speculating about the finale of ‘Game of Thrones’ to distract us from the fact that our President is an unhinged lunatic.

The Game of Thrones finale is on Sunday, and we know it will be called “The Dragon and the Wolf Get it on” and it will be the longest finale ever:

The final episode of GAMES OF THRONES’ current season is titled “The Dragon and the Wolf,” and debuts this SUNDAY, AUG. 27 at 9:00 p.m.
(ET/PT) on HBO. The total running time is 79 minutes, 43 seconds.

And here are a bunch of photos from the episode of people staring into the distance:

Here in Houston, King’s Bierhaus in the Heights is having a Game of Thrones night tonight, and it sounds pretty great:


We Always Pay Our Debts (The Lannisters care only for blood and gold)

Whiskey, lemon, sugar, red wine

The White Walker (The dead will rise with blue eyes)

Alessio Bianco, Luxardo Bitter Bianco, lemon, soda

The Rose of Highgarden (Tell Cersi it was ME!)

Dornfelder wine, vodka, sugar, rose water

Milk of the Poppy (A Maester’s best friend)

Dark rum, German brandy, black tea, lime, pineapple, milk (clarified)”

And if you’re not in Houston, Arby’s has you covered.


Michael Bolton and friends sing new theme songs for all your favorite shows, including House of Bolton’s tribute to Game of Thrones:

In non-Game of Thrones news, ESPN pulls commentator Robert Lee from a UVA football game to avoid controversy, creates controversy.

Because words don’t mean anything anymore, Kevin Can Wait is claiming they killed off Erinn Hayes’ character out of “respect” for the actress.

Oh my God, Insecure had a mini-Lost reunion this week AND I DID NOT NOTICE BECAUSE I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT IS WALT.

This is a nice history and exploration of RuPaul’s Drag Race and why it’s important.

Happy 14th birthday, From Justin to Kelly!

So I was going to write something up about Trump’s rally in Phoenix last night in which he lambasted the media, again, this time because his fee-fees were hurt that they pointed out that he said there were “many sides” to blame for Charlottesville, and that he openly defended white nationalists. WHICH IS A THING THAT HE DID. And I was going to quote all the times he attacked the press, and CNN and The New York Times and The Washington Post last night and said crazy dangerous anti-First Amendment nonsense, AGAIN, but the quote became so long and unwieldy because it was pretty much the entirety of his 77-minute speech last night and I had to abandon that plan. Instead, here’s just a little taste of our President saying that journalists hate their country:

TRUMP: And — and I say it, and you know, we’re all pros. We’re all, like, we have a certain sense. We’re smart people. These are truly dishonest people. And not all of them. Not all of them. You have some very good reporters. You have some very fair journalists. But for the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people, and they’re bad people. And I really think they don’t like our country. I really believe that. And I don’t believe they’re going to change, and that’s why I do this. If they would change, I would never say it.

The only people giving a platform to these hate groups is the media itself, and the fake news.

(APPLAUSE) TRUMP: Oh, that’s so funny. Look back there, the live red lights. They’re turning those suckers off fast out there. They’re turning those lights off fast. Like CNN. CNN does not want its falling viewership to watch what I’m saying tonight, I can tell you.

I don’t know how many ways I can say that this sort of demagoguery would be  dangerous and irresponsible from anyone, but to have the President of the United States repeatedly saying these sorts of things about hard-working journalists who are just doing their jobs? It never stops being astonishing. Horrific and astonishing.
