So we're less than 3 weeks out.
Who is going to die this season?
1.) The Sandsnakes - anyone connected to the Dorne Betrayal. There's just no room for them in the show's story.
2.) The Mountain. Cleganebowl! get pumped. Dany's able to take King's Landing. Cersei and Jamie may live, but Cersei's zombie won't
3.) Euron Greyjoy. He's the most evil of any character introduced yet, though I don't know if the show has properly captured this. The show can't have the White Walkers and Euron in season 8, so he's got to go.
4.) Benjen Stark. Technically he's already dead, but I think he's going to go permanently this time saving Jon and his companions on their voyage north.
I'm sure a lot of others will go, especially with that ranging with Jon and the 11 others beyond the wall in the previews. But those 4 I'd put money on won't be alive at the end of the season.
My big problem with this season is that if you recall, Jeor Mormont already sent the hand of a wight to King's Landing in season 1. No one gave a shit. So why will Jon and his company bringing back part of a dead wight matter?
Littlefinger will die by the hands of Arya. If she gets home there is no way she won't see through his bullshit. I have a feeling Jon won't be at Winterfell much this season or he would do it himself.
And I think Jon and company are going to try and capture a wight. It's the only way to get people not of the North to believe.

really surprised we haven't heard i.r.s. yet. slash and duff could learn the song in 2 minutes and they'd fuckin' jam on it.
I've been holding my breath to hear this lineup's take on I.R.S. Even if Axl is having a mickey type voice night, I still think it would sound pretty killer.
That's what I'm saying. IRS was the closest we got to an older guns sound on a rocker on CD. I just in vision it getting dirty and better.

The whole video only gets to NITL in the last 13 seconds....and it is mostly about album and single releases...so they post that...as "The Beginning" - then the same day they post this stuff about how it's not over....
This is actually the one I saw. My immediate thought was maybe something was gonna happen but 2 seconds l thought probably more US dates. I don't expect anything of the band anymore. I just enjoy the music and have a little hope for the future. The days of expecting something or being pissed or bummed that something didn't turn out to be are over for me.

Blood On The Mountain. It's a netflix documentary about the coal businesses in West Virginia/Kentucky, and how corrupt they are. Essentially, start digging, send employees in there, wait until it becomes dry or you have a mass casualty, file bankruptcy. Repeat.
While I recognize it does lean left, there's truth in it. Senators are essentially ushered into office via these company execs, as they finance their campaigns. So the Senators pass laws and downplay investigations into workplace accidents. They lose a lawsuit for $50 million, file bankruptcy, and don't have to pay their employees their pensions. The former employees, just go on down the road, to the new mine that opens up. It also gets into Black Lung, both decades ago as well as today.
Towards the end, it gets into the newer method of mining, which is more just scraping the tops of the mountains off completely, and digging down with heavy duty equipment, using less manual labor anyway, but it just seems way dirtier & bad for the air.
It's worth watching, and is really well made. Not just the topic, but the production quality & amount of research. Something I'm a stickler for with docs.
I just put that on my list last night. Gonna check it out this weekend. Seemed interesting enough. Netflix is pretty solid with their docs.
Just saw Guardians 2 last night. Really dug it. Maybe even better than the first.
