Fan Expo Day 1

Hey All, Sue and I are having a great time at Toronto’s Fan Expo, and thought we’d share some of the pictures from our first day, with more to come tomorrow! I’m shooting on my Asus tablet using the Vignette photo app, so there are fun colors and filters… Hey, I’m playing and enjoying! Yes,…

Stephen King’s It

I’ve been revisiting Stephen King books, and then when I’m done a title, I like to take a look at the accompanying film, or mini-series. I recently finished King’s epic book It. I haven’t read that since I was a teen, probably 13 or 14. I used to make sure that my Mom got King’s…

Game of Thrones S02 E10 – Valar Morghulis

There it is, the season finale, and we’re done for another year, it’s gonna be a long wait for a return to Westeros, but maybe I’ll read Dance of Dragons between now and then to fill up some of the time. This week, we saw the fallout of the Battle of Breakwater, as well as…

Game of Thrones S02 E09 – Blackwater

From the moment I reached this point in Clash of Kings, I have been waiting to see the adaptation of it in the television series on HBO’s Game of Thrones. I was further delighted to see that George R.R. Martin, the author of the series, the man who can kill your favorite characters indiscriminately, wrote…

Game of Thrones S02 E07 & E08

As we know, things went sideways for me last week, so I didn’t have a chance to watch Game of Thrones until this evening, and watched both eps back to back again. To be honest, I almost prefer it this way, getting two hours of solid entertainment. Theon Greyjoy, having installed himself into Winterfell, wakes…

Game of Thrones S02E04 – Garden of Bones

  New locations are presented to us in this week’s always brilliant opening credits, we get a glimpse of Qarth and Harrenhal. The episode begins in the Riverlands with a successful night time raid on a Lannister camp by Robb Stark, his dire wolf and his men. In the blood-strewn aftermath of the assault, Robb…

Game of Thrones S02E03 – What Is Dead May Never Die

The politics and machinations are well under way at this point of the season, as parties maneuver to gain control of the Iron Throne and the lands of Westeros. North of the Wall, we rejoin Jon Snow as Craster delivers him to Lord Commander Mormont after catching Snow spying on the fate of Craster’s male…

Game of Thrones S02E02 – The Night Lands

The Song of Fire & Ice continued this week, with the incomparable fantasy series Game of Thrones. And you know you’re addicted, and a geek, when you notice and pick out new locations that you’ve read about and imagined appear in what may well be my favorite opening credits for a television series ever. This…

Game of Thrones S02E01 – The North Remembers

I have been looking forward to returning to Westeros since the end of the first season of Game of Thrones, not to mention when I finished the books (still haven’t read Dance of Dragons yet – paperback please). The novels, and now the series it has spawned is epic in nature, there are tons of…

Game of Thrones Exhibit at the Lightbox

Yup, sometimes being here in Toronto is pretty¬†cool.¬†It also helps to have some awesome friends who offered me a free ticket to take in the Game of Thrones Exhibit being put on at the Lightbox, the home of the Toronto International Film Festival. I have to say that I like the Lightbox, and I keep…
