Bran’s Vision in 4.02

I didn’t see one of this anywhere, so I did it myself.  Yes, there is a time bar at the bottom of each.  That’s a check so that I keep them in order.  h/t to Tormund Giantsbane for putting it up on YouTube.

So, we start with 

A Weirwood in the snow

Transition through a shot of tree roots to the three-eyed raven

Who flies off to the right

Into crypts?  As a book-reader, I’m going to guess the crypts at Winterfell

We pop to black, then

Ice being sharpened

A torch flares in the darkness

Close-up of Ned’s eye, looking to the side with a torch reflected in it

Time-lapse of clouds moving over a twilit snowscape with a setting sun.

And back to the tree.  Note the weird henge-y stones around it.  Anyone recognize it?

“Look for me” (Man’s voice.  Accented.  Not one I immediately recognized.  Anyone else?)

Flying corvid in front of a green tree

lands on a branch

Weirwood face

Some dude in black with tan leggings standing in a snowy forest, facing away from us

We start to hear several corvids at this point

Closer shot of the same dude, turning toward us, but his face is never visible 

Corvids, flying towards us! In the woods in the dark.  One’s voice becomes more distinct, and it flies right at us

More tree roots.

And the Tree again

 

“Beneath the tree” (Same dude’s voice)

Creepy shot of a horse’s head with chains and muscle showing.

The throne room, covered in snow, with the roof gone.

Flash to white 

Crystals?  Whatever the fuck this is…something moving in the background, in the black space on the left.  A face?

“He saw us” (Cersei)

Corvid flying at us

Bran falling

A dragon’s shadow over King’s Landing

More Bran falling

The Tree, now in shadow

Another shot of the tree, further in shadow

“North” (Same dude’s voice)

And that’s it.

I’ll edit with updates/clarifications if people notice things I didn’t (I promise to h/t).  Any insights?

Favourite jokes

  • Referring to any four-legged animal as a weird dog
  • Massively underestimating the number of nearly uncountable objects
  • Massively overestimating the number of clearly countable objects
  • Bad puns in TV episode titles

I find this unspeakably funny.  And I don’t think it’s just because wine.

Let It Go Meme

Ok, Tumblr, I was studiously avoiding all iterations of the Let It Go meme until after seeing the movie.  I have now seen the movie.  What are the very best cover/spoof/what have yous that I simply must see?

why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that

uh 

because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”

and not the slang word for the female genital region?

literally no one else knows this. nobody. 

Nobody knows it because it’s not true.  Even wikipedia doesn’t believe it:

It has been informally suggested in folk etymology that it is a shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which comes from Latin words meaning “tiny spirit” and is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “showing a lack of courage or determination” or cowardly. Though this meaning would seem to be consistent with the intention of the word “pussy” when used as an insult toward a man, it is a false cognate unrelated to the Germanic derivations ofpuss and pussy.”

slowlyandthenbadass:

so when a man is considered good looking he’s gay
and when a woman is considered to not be good looking she’s lesbian

Because if you want dick, you’ve got to be hot, obv. This is how we square the circle of “guys will fuck anyone, anytime, anywhere” with “except ugly people because ew” and “no homo.”
