Jets Lounge: Dreams of Winds of Winter

Old thread was over the limit. Last few posts:

Try watching Twin Peaks.

i think Lost educated me regarding tv watching. try to stop making sense of things as if it's real life. just go along for the ride.
but i found the last episode to be interesting. there are a few ways to interpret it, and that makes it fun.
it could have been a slightly better last episode, but i'm still satisfied.
i did go back and watch 2 scenes again to pick up the subtle hints as to what really happened to Nora, and when you find it, it makes it that much more interesting...and confusing.

I wish them all the luck in the world as they bring the Bruce Oak recovery centre to life and make something positive out of their tragedy.

New Twin Peaks is amazing. Had to rewatch all 5 episodes cause I knew I missed a bunch of things. Confusing yes, but I'm a little more used to it as I've been a huge David Lynch fan for a while.

Re: Thread title, The Winds of Winter is never coming out.

You Euros have too many letters. Hell, even the English alphabet has two too many. There are 24 hours in the day, and there should be 24 letters in the alphabet. Let's be real, Q is just a dead loss and C is completely superfluous. Both can be replaced by K, or an S for the soft C. In fact, look at how many words require you to use both C and K. How stupidly redundant and time wasting. Let's make English kwiker.

Anyway, back to umlauts and accents, we don't need little mark-ups to tell us how to say our vowels, we just remember how to pronounce the words. Don't even get me started on consonant variants. Finns especially should want to embrace this philosophy. God knows their words are long enough already without having to go back and throw dots at every second letter. I'll bet carpal tunnel syndrome is more prevalent in countries that use umlauts.

As an English teacher I wholeheartedly disagree, although you're onto something with the alphabet.

1) As far as we are concerned, Ä and Ö are real genuine letters (and keyboard buttons!) and not some bastardizations with extra marks, and we can well afford our supposedly extra vowels because we really keep the suspiciously furrin C, F, Q, X and Z along just to pad our numbers, and b) with our near-perfect grapheme-phoneme correspondence I scoff at the idea of having to remember the pronounciation of any words. Our A is A always, as is E E; the Ä and Ö are there to keep us straight from ever succumbing to any kind of 'hät' or 'thö' nonsense, and the vowel harmony is there to protect us from tongue-killing craziness like 'Olympics' even better than the NHL can.

Really, it's so crazy simple we have added the grammatical cases of nominative, genetive, partitive, essive, translative, inessive, elative, illative, adessive, ablative, allative, accusative and I don't remember the rest on top of it just to have even some challenge.

If the Alien language in Arrival had case marking it would have taken far less time to decipher.

English is like "aight since everything else is so damn inconsistent we'll keep the case marking to the pronouns."

Hey! Hey! Spoiler alerts please and thank you? Some of us still haven't seen the movie and would like to be surprised. Fortunately, I don't have a clue what you just said, but still...

Many hours spent as a child watching him as Batman.

So when you go to France, do you bring back wine, Cognac or Bourbon?

E3 is this week, which allows me to remember what it's like to be a kid, except this time with disposable income. So many games coming out now. I was kind of hoping for some Last of Us 2 information, but oh well. I'll settle for two new Metroid games.
