Game of Thrones premiere recap: The Red Woman
The theme of the night is VENGEANCE, which is pretty much the theme of every third Game of Thrones episode. (I’m so glad this show is back!

Keeping up with the konspiracies

Keeping up with the konspiracies
It’s a boring week in political/celebrity news. Sure, Kirsten Dunst split from her boyfriend, that guy in the movie with Gwyneth, but THAT’S IT. Lame.
