The KitN scene was poorly done.   There's a part of me that thinks they hired a Manderly, then seeing what the she-cub could do (and sensing she would be a crowd pleaser), gave her the speech. If not, why even have Manderly? The speech was truncated and had little power when compared to the book.   Why would these lords follow a bastard who abandoned his oath and nearly lost the battle? Especially when there's a legitimate heir sitting beside him. If anything they...
Compared to the shit of the last few seasons, maybe. But overall, not even close.    lefty
There was something a little sad about him when it came to his past and sexuality. The documentary gently and respectfully touches upon both a little.   lefty
I saw him speak last year and witnessed him at work a few times. Sweet, charming, a little kooky, and an NYC treasure.   http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/26/style/bill-cunningham-legendary-times-fashion-photographer-dies-at-87.html?_r=0     lefty
I would drive the 2 hours for Maruca's pizza in Seaside Heights.   lefty
We're leaning that way. There's a nest of baby robins 15' from the back deck, swallows building a nest in the roof joists (may not let that happen next year), a juvenile red tail hawk that hunts near my compost bin, a pileated woodpecker that loves my old wood pile, orioles that chase each other in and out of the large trees; wrens, sparrows, hummingbirds and chickadees.    As I write this I realize my decision has been made.   ^ glue traps are horrible.    lefty
Think I told this story before. A buddy in small town NJ trapped a squirrel that was wreaking havoc in his attic and he decided to drown it in the pond of a local park. At night. Cops roll up and asked him what the hell he was doing. He explains and the cops tell him to stop. If he really wants to kill it, they explain, he has to drag the cage out to the deeper water.     Having an animal dilemma at my cabin. It's basically an acre or so cut out of the woods with...
As long as your 3000 strong cavalry, 5000 infantry, support wagons, tents, siege equipment, cooks, food, blacksmiths, armourers, fletchers, healers, latrine diggers and assorted whores are hidden behind a hill, no one will see you coming.   "We can outlast any siege ... oh, fuck. They have a strong guy."   "I know you have me surrounded with archers--and Ima let you win--but first I'm going put an arrow into the eye of your big buddy over there, then monologue as I...
Zig-zagging will only get you so far.       lefty
Corsos. Maybe a Neo in the background.   edit: taking another quick look, those dogs could be a few different things. Corso heads for sure (more Italian than American), but cropped ears with intact tails are throwing me for a loop. I'd expect to see intact ears and docked tails before the reverse.    Cropping and docking are banned in nearly all of Europe, the UK and Iceland, so not really sure where these dogs came from.    lefty
