He made a creepy, flippant tweet but did correct peoples misconceptions of Iran as a war zone so.
@sizzsav since when is Iran a war zone ?— RUN UP (@diplo) February 5, 2017

Jamie Lynn Spears Daughter Maddie Seriously Hurt in ATV Accident https://t.co/Lf1I2LKfEE— TMZ (@TMZ) February 6, 2017
she was on an ATV, it flipped over, and she was under water for several minutes :( :( her condition is 'extremely serious'
Lady Gaga opened the half-time show with "God Bless America", then followed up with "This Land Is Your Land". She performed "This Land Is Your Land" at the Democratic Nation Convention in July 2016, which became an anti-Trump anthem. Protestors have been singing this song at rallies against Trump's Muslim Ban.
"This Land Is Your Land" was written by Woody Guthrie in 1944. Guthrie also wrote a poem criticizing Fred Trump (his land-lord) for being a racist POS. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
This post is brought to you by Emilia and Lena being obviously wasted because if I was D&D.. getting drunk out of my mind is the only way I could cope with there being this many leaks.
These new leaks aren't much or that huge (mostly bc everything big has already been leaked) but give some important details which makes the season make a little bit more sense. Leaks from same reddit dude as the scripts and the recent leaks. But still take with a grain of salt yada yada yada...
Dany and Jon
-In episode 4 just before Dany leaves for the ambush, Jon takes her down to the caves below Dragonstone where they are mining Dragonglass.
-He shows her some cave paintings on the walls that look like the spirals we've seen earlier in the series - they are the work of the Children of the Forest.
-Dany says maybe they are from before there were even men, but Jon shows her a picture that has 5 small figures with 3 larger ones - the Children of the Forest and the First Men fighting a common enemy - the White Walkers - there will be another painting of them too, with the Night King.
-Jon says that this shows that despite the people of Westeros differences, this shows that there has always been a need for them to bad together against this enemy.
-Dany says she believes him, and that she will help him. IF he bends the knee.
-It's directly after this that she gets the news that while they may have taken Casterly Rock, it hasn't exactly been a victory and their troops are now cut off.
The Unsullied's attack on Casterly Rock
-The Unsullied attack Casterly Rock with a large force, while a small force led by Grey Worm sneaks in via Tyrion's secret whore entrance and slays the garrison force that's there.
-Greyworm leads the attack on Casterly Rock as per Tyrion's plan. Casterly Rock is taken quite easily, as the Lannister's essentially have abandoned it, rationalising that once Dany's forces take it they will be cut off from the Sea by Euron's forces, and the Lannister forces will cut them off by land - they won't be able to hold the Rock for a significant time. Eventually (and pretty sure this isn't on screen) they abandon CR and Grey Worm rejoins Dany's forces, and will be in the Dragonpit scene
Sam and Jorah
-Maester Ebrose tells Sam not to waste time trying to cure it, and mentions that an old Maester had done some reading into it but forbids Sam to take it further.
-Sam steals a key for the restricted library and find the book detailing how to cut off the scales and treat it with a special ointment (that Sam prepares himself from the instructions)
-We see him start the operation on Jorah, and it's clearly incredibly painful and takes all night. We don't get much more of a description of the process than that though. It's a bit underwhelming for what everyone seems to think is an irreversible condition.
Missandei and Greyworm
-Missandei comes to see Greyworm in episode 3 just before he leaves for Casterly Rock to say goodbye. They have a conversation about how Greyworm now has one fear and that is not seeing Missandei again. Greyworm talks about how they do not belong in Westeros after Dany takes the throne and asks Missandei if she would like to see Naath again. She says her people are peaceful and cannot protect themselves. Greyworm responds by saying the Unsullied are not peaceful and can protect Missandei’s people.
-They end up kissing and Missandei removes her clothes. She removes Greyworms top but when she tries to remove his lower clothing he grabs her on the wrist gently to stop her. She says she wants to see all of him. He objects but then nods and she removes his clothes. They go to the bed where Greyworm kisses her face, neck and breasts. He moves downwards but the camera remains focused on Missandei’s face as she receives pleasure.
-In episode 4 Missandei and Dany are having a female bonding session and Dany tells missandei not to worry Greyworm will return to her. Dany asks what happened between them and Missandei answers “many things”. Dany realises they have had sex and asks “the pillar?” and Missandei answers “yes”.
-We won’t see Beric and Gendry after that episode (6), or at least they aren’t mentioned.
-The script says at the end of that episode The Hound heads south with the captive Wight in a box, and Beric follows him. Beric isn’t in Episode 7 though.
-Tormund will reappear in the very last scene of Ep 7 - he’s manning the Wall when the army of the dead attack and Viserion burns it. We don’t see him die or anything, just running for safety once the dragon attacks.
added a cut mods
That's my girl
Here we COoOOME
Indie Rock, became known as The O.C's theme song and every tween's reason to scream their love for such a relatable show every time it played at an 'ages 12-17 dance' night out. It was released in February 2002, and was re-recorded in 2005 to have a more mellowed sound. It peaked at #2 in Italy, and #32 in the US.
Life's like this
Pop Rock, Avril's debut single. This was the start of our "I don't like using the term 'pop star' because that's not my personality, I'm hardcore" not-pop Pop Rock Princess. It was released on May 14 2002, and was a hit, winning many awards and peaking at #1 on charts everywhere.
Is this thing on?
I Love Rock 'n' Roll
Pop Rock, originally of Hard Rock genre by The Arrows before being made famous by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. A fan cover cassette single by Britney Spears that was used in her flop film, Crossroads. It was released on May 27 2002, and was generally regarded as the fun ice cream flavour that nobody really likes, yet most can appreciate because it's pretty and colourful and fun for no reason.
I was losT oh yeah
In My Place
Alternative Rock, was well-received both musically and lyrically. The song was released on August 5, 2002, and it's worth noting that it was used in the second season premiere of the then-hit TV series Smallville back when CW was still WB.
and the world keeps spinning 'rooound
Alternative Rock, a pretty basic single and a perfect filler for this list, but still memorable enough for some. It was released August 5, 2002.
F-ck'n hates me
She Hates Me
Puddle of Mudd
Alternative/Hard Rock, it was written around the time when a lot of you were born (1993), but wasn't released until August 13, 2002. Not as much of a hit as the band's single Blurry, but it still sold over 500,000 copies in the US, and the sung title still gets stuck in your head when you least expect it.
We are. We are alllll
Our Lady Peace
Alternative Rock, it did really well in Canada, peaking at #2, and even won two whole MuchMusic Video Awards awards. Pretty nice, eh? The song was released August 13, 2002.
Here by ma side
Alternative Rock, what a year for Canadian artists in Canada! This song was released October 9, 2002, peaked at #4 on Canada's Nielsen rock chart, and won the award for "Best Video" at the 2003 Juno Awards. And yet another track that made Smallville's second season - only this one was used in the finale.
yo bahdy is'wondaland
Your Body Is a Wonderland
Soft Pop Rock, found commercial success, won a grammy, and makes it on literally everyone's "worst songs ever" list. It was released October 14, 2002.
The All-American Rejects
Pop Punk, played at the beach during everyone's spring break, or through the headphones of an emo on a good day. The song was the band's debut single, released December 2, 2002.

What were your jams 10-15 years ago, ONTD?
Flying Queen of Pop, Lady Gaga had iTunes shook after her Superbowl Halftime show with Joanne leading the charts at #1 & #3. Fame Monster (Deluxe w/ the Fame) was #4, Born This Way #9 etc. "A Million Reasons" also sprung to the top of the singles chart with Poker Face at #9 and Born This Way at #7.
She knocked down the first ever singer-songwriter Ed Cumberbatch's song, 'Shape of You'.
what kind of chart kween. Poker Face is a forever bop!
Captain Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon.
this looks so well done and this creepypasta is lit. i'm excited!
Good things keep happening for Karla and MGK. Their gold certified smash "Bad Things" which went top 5 this week, is now the #1 song on pop radio.

@LaurenJauregui girl you're distracted by what's going on in today's world when you take selfies.— ᴺᴷF. (@NorminahKorbae) February 6, 2017
Why don't you give up being an artist and become a full time activist since everything is a "distraction"? @LaurenJauregui— Samie (@kerrykordei) February 6, 2017
she's not sorry, she's upset that no one is agreeing with her and no one gave her brownie points. But she'll pop off about this again soon pic.twitter.com/Buyes8EAx9— ㅤ (@pamelaislye) February 6, 2017

I am an old woman yelling at cloud, and I think Youtubers are generally terrible - it takes quite a bit of digging to find someone who isn't a pathological narcissist, a racist, clickbait trash, or makes annoying faces on the still. With book youtubers ("booktubers"), most of them read YA pretty exclusively - always the same books, once you've seen a video you've literally seen them all - and act unnaturally chipper, which really annoys me.
HOWEVER there are some booktubers who are alright, who are smart and don't act like maniacs on camera, and who actually read interesting books. If you prefer to watch videos rather than read articles recommending books, then you can get good recs from these people. They aren't the flashiest, or the ones with the most subscriptions, sometimes they don't even have very good production values, BUT the content is good. And when it comes to books, that is all that really matters.
So here are 5 booktubers who aren't as terrible as the others.
1. Jen Campbell
Jen owns a bookshop in the UK and is also the author of the hilarious Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops and More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops, and the non-fiction The Bookshop Book, which "examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents".
Her channel is pretty no-frills and she reads mostly adult books, including from independent presses. You can get good recs from her on her themed videos (i.e. Magical Realism recs; Apocalyptic Fiction; LGBTQ book recs, etc) or on her monthly wrap-ups, where she talks about the latest books she's read.
Mercy reads a lot of adult and fantasy books (her video guide to Robin Hobb is very helpful). She is English, so that explains why on some of her videos she looks like the lost Little Mix member. She has some themed videos (underhyped books; favourite graphic novels; etc), and also does regular book hauls and monthly wrap-ups.
Sanne is Dutch (but vlogs in English). She reads pretty widely, including adult fiction, graphic novels, and fantasy. She does book hauls, reading wrap-ups, recs, and also videos about other subjects. I personally enjoyed her videos about the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction shortlist (which was sponsored by Baileys but still).
4. rincey reads
Rincey is American. She's a Bookriot writer and reads a LOT - and way more diversely than the average booktuber. As for genres, Rincey reads pretty much every genre there is: a lot of adult books, non-fiction, fantasy, thriller, YA, etc. She does book reviews, book hauls, reading wrap-ups and discussions.
Leslie is an Australian booktuber. Her production values aren't the best but personally I will take homemade before overdone. She reads a lot of classics, children's books, popular fiction and more. She also does themed recs (novella recs, top 5 faves, books worth the hype), reviews, wrap-ups and book hauls.
do you ever get recs from booktubers? who is your fave?
(ps this is a book post NOT a youtube drama post)
