Max von Sydow has passed away at the age of 90 years old. Death always wins the chess game, friend. But you won’t be forgotten.
Absolute acting force Max von Sydow has passed away at the age of 90. And not to sound cliche, but despite him passing, his roles shall live on.
George R.R. Martin says he can finish the books now that ‘Game of Thrones’ is over and I respect the honesty
GRRM has seen the ending of Game of Thrones along with the rest of us. And I imagine he’s thinking what we are all thinking. There is no way the book series’ ending can be worse than the show. Take a breath, GRRM, and begin hammering that shit out.
One of the more gratifying things about the final season of Game of Thrones was (pretty much) everyone realizing what I already knew: the showrunners were fucking idiots. That said? Apparently Netflix still hasn’t realize it. Signing these chumps to an insane deal.
Next ‘Star Wars’ movie is coming from the ‘Game of Thrones’ creators which is less and less exciting
Friends, the next Star Wars movie is coming from the Game of Thrones creators. Like, two years ago this would have been thrilling news. But, given that the final season of Game of Thrones is a shit stew, I’m a bit more skeptical.
Drake gave Arya a shoutout at Billboard Music Awards, thereby condemning her to death on ‘Game of Thrones’
Drake’s endorsement of a sports team usually condemns them to playoff heartbreak. So, ya’ll fans of Arya might want to say a novena. ‘Cause last night the rapper dropped a shoutout to her at the Billboard Music Awards, which can only mean one thing. Logically.
Hey friends! Drinkwater here. Caffeine Powered here. CaffPow here. Whatever appellation you want to hang on me, go for it. I simply don’t fucking care. Weird week here for me, friends. My wife’s grandmother passed away last week, and we’re in that liminal state. Between the passing and the service. Between the act and the acceptance. If you’re reading this babe, I love you! You’ve got this. And so everything feels in stasis until at least the service on Saturday. But as we all know, it’ll be a much longer process than that.
Meanwhile, I am in the doldrums of the semester. Tired. I’m tired. The students are tired. The staff are tired. We all out here, tired. So, apologies if nothing is truly sizzling my tits right now. I present to you Monday Morning Commute, none the less. And, I suppose that’s where you come in.
Indeed, hit up the comments section.
Let me know what you’re enjoying!
Furthermore, let me know what you’re anticipating this week!
I’ll go first, per the rules of this dance.
Amazon’s ‘The Dark Tower’ series casts ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jerome Flynn. Fuck yeah to this casting!
Jerome Flynn is awesome in Game of Thrones. And this is coming from a dude who doesn’t fuck with the show heavy. Thus, I’m pretty goddamn stoked Amazon has brought the dude into the Dark Tower series they’re rolling out.
We’re in the endgames now, my friends. With the crushing realization that the MCU As We Know It has about ten days left (less if you’ve seen the leaks), I’m beginning to descend into melancholic nostalgia. However, it isn’t just the MCU that’s wrapping things up. Nope! Johnny Wick‘s third and seemingly final adventure is right around the corner, and Game of Thrones‘ final season began on Sunday.
All three of those are reason for me to pause and mourn, but it ain’t all bad news. You see, I’m also staring at less than a month left in the semester. Won’t catch me crying over its demise, though. No way! No how!
Anyways, how the fuck are you? This is Monday Morning Commute. The column where we gather to share what we’re enjoying on a given week. As well, we babble about what’s dropping over the course of the next seven days that has us hype.
I’ll go first!
