Sorry about last week, folks. I was one of many New Yorkers without power a week after Sandy hit. It was madness. Downed trees, no heat, long gas lines, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!
The storm did provide an opportunity to convince a few friends who would otherwise not be interested, into watching (and eventually becoming addicted to) “Game of Thrones”. So they at least understood my “Winter is Coming” reference when a nor’easter hit a few days later. Over at MTV, they spoke to George R.R. Martin about how a few of his characters would fare in a fight with some of Tolkien’s. Let’s be honest, in the game of Sean Bean roles, you die or you die. (MTV)

Finally an MTV explains why they never play music videos anymore. Hint: You. You’re the problem. (Youtube)
Like many of us, President Obama is hooked on “Homeland”. Here’s Damian Lewis sharing a story about the POTUS blowing off work to watch the show and signing a DVD box set for him. (WG)
Sometimes a client from hell is a creative opportunity. (The Curious Brain)
If you remember Rebecca Black, then you know the work of Patrice Wilson, the writer and producer behind Black’s internet earworm “Friday”. Well, just as your ears were finally starting to heal, he’s back. And this time it’s Thanksgiving with which he’d like you to associate driving a railroad spike through your head.
That was almost worth it for this gif alone:
