Game of Thrones – 1S a candid review

Just as this new season of Game of Thrones started, I’ve started to watch it for the first time. This week, as I completed my journey through the first season, a lot of friends on Facebook were mocking me all the time for some character I would like and get attached, not knowing that his end was always close. It seemed like veterans vs freshmen.  I will not give up, my friends, I will continue watching Game of Thrones.

But before starting the second season, I thought it would be cool to make a summary of the season 1 for those who haven’t seen and don’t want to see:

It starts when a kid sees two siblings having sex. No big deal, right? Who never had sex with a sibling? But the siblings are the Royals, I don’t know. And when the boy is pushed from the top of the tower to die for what he saw, he decides to survive, oh boy why? humph! Children are a lot of work, aren’t them? Then the king will bother again with another children’s fight, and kill the other kid’s wolf. humph! I really wanted to have a paranormal wolf like that in my life. BUT GUYS: THIS IS A KIDS’ FITGH!!! My mother used not to pay any attention to it. But the Royals care.

Then there is a super young girl, in a really small body, And well, she has to marry a WONDERFUL 5 meters of man. OMG what a man! At first, he fucked badly, but then she teaches him, you know… everything sorted out.

There is a marvelous dwarf who, although not tall, we would go with him for a drink, all the girls would, for he speaks really well and would convince us. 

There is a madwoman there who still breastfeeds her 20-year-old child  (kidding: maybe 15), and the boy hangs on her shoulder wanting to eat. oh Man! Women, breastfeeding is beautiful, but right: there are limits! lol We won’t breastfeed anyone over 10, please. 

Soon the king’s friend, BEST MAN OF THE WORLD, is about to lose his head because he has scruples, but not the new king: a mean psychopath boy, who ordered to cut off the head of the best man of the world. I’m not even going to say anything, I’m still in tears. RIP WONDERFUL BEST MAN OF THE WORLD.

 

Best man of the world

 

Humph, I nearly forgot: there’s the mother, Catelyn, who…  God! if she had a Facebook account, I’m sure she would embarrass her kids on the internet night and day with some awkward showing ups on threads. That’s all I have to say about her.

And in the end, the 5 meters of man dies? Like ok: he did turn into a little zombie after he’s survived some infected wound, but then the small girl kills him? GIRL!!! YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR BOYS OF REAL LIFE. If I was going to kill every man I had that suddenly got emotionally unavailable, I would have turned into a serial killer. He’s a bit zombie? yes! but not really different from all those emotionally distant men we all saw in our lives. And what do we do with them? We just keep the relationship, getting crazy day after day, for he doesn’t give us half of the loving he used to, we ask them what happened, they say !nothing, that it’s all in our mind”, all that gaslighting… IT’S NORMAL, KHALEESI, YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO KILL HIM!!! =(

You see: not so different from the emotionally unavailable men that I had

 

Well, the small girl loses her son, her reign, everything,  but gives birth to 3 beautiful and healthy dragon.

AND THAT’S HOW EUROPE WAS BORN

 

 

A taxi to where you belong

I finally got Patti Smith’s book this week. Shame on me. But among the many interesting things, I will tell you one that caught my attention: she and Robert suffered a lot from a disease called poverty. Jesus, everything was very complicated, even to pay a bus, that cost I don’t know how many cents, it was difficult. Though they worked a lot to the hour of death, they still couldn’t afford basic things. Even so, with jobs that paid badly, they relied on their art. But I only see Patti saying they made this and that work of art and that’s it. Nothing happens.

One day, after many downs and outs, and many changes in their relationship, with some money she could save, Patti went to France and left Robert in America sending letters of love and of how sick he was. The night Patti arrived back, Robert was dying. He had all the diseases in the world plus gonorrhea. It was chaos. That same night, someone has killed a man in the top floor apartment. Robert despaired and they left the apartment in panic and went to a very dirty hotel to spend the night. It was purgatory, full of people using heroin and other drugs, miserable, sick and unhappy people. The doors of the rooms were open and everyone would share their misery around. A drug addict appeared while Robert was dying in fever on a bed, and in a moment of lucidity, he made Patti wake up to life: “Get out of here. This place is not for you”. Patti, dragging Robert, running like someone running from hell itself, got into a taxi without knowing if she had the money to pay and said something that would change their lives: “to Chelsea Hotel”. That very same hotel of the songs Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and others wrote. Without money and without a very settled plan, Patti arranged a place to live there, using the only tool she had: faith.  And that was the turning point.

And the lesson is: if you are sure that your art/work is so good, why not going straight to the place where you think you belong and let things magically catch up with you? So then you will be yourself in the place that you feel you belong, right? And not yourself in a place that is not for you. Why staying in purgatory when you are sure you belong to the Chelsea Hotel? Sometimes, you really have to take a taxi to Chelsea’s without even knowing how to pay for the ride, and when you get there, let Chelsea’s show you the way.

Read the book. Best book.
