“Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating,” a message on Pratt’s Facebook reads. “We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.” Read more…

These cats are so lazy even their fights are half-hearted brawls, and cute AF

TwitterFacebook

House cats are perhaps the most skilled of all animals — humans included — when it comes to the modern art of slacking around the house. 

And it turns out that that high level chill extends to a new form of combat we will now refer to as cat-slack-fu.

No, the video you’re watching (below) of two cats fighting in Japan is not in slow motion. This video is regular speed. 

But as we all know, when you have truly mastered the art of the intercepting paw, speed is less important than accuracy.  Read more…

Arya now has a Valyrian steel weapon, but where did it come from?

TwitterFacebook

Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode four follow. Don’t act like you haven’t been warned. That would embarrass everyone. 

Well, that wonderful episode gave us many, many things, but it also gave Arya a Valyrian steel dagger. 

Littlefinger, in his smarmy way, tried to bond with the newly-returned, newly-creepy Bran by giving him a very special dagger. Bran saw right through the twerp’s greasy smile (“Chaos is a ladder.”), but had no real need of the knife. So, he gave it to Arya in the midst of that very touching Stark family underneath the red leaves of the weirwood tree.

But where did it come from and what does it mean? Read more…

Next week’s ‘Game of Thrones’ trailer is really playing up that whole Mad Queen thing

TwitterFacebook

Daenerys needs some R-E-S-P-E-C-T, y’all. 

After a decisive (if harrowing) victory that saw our Unburnt Queen torch a whole field of Lannister soldiers (and possibly drown Jaime?) in her first battle on Westerosi soil, the teaser trailer for next week’s episode is definitely playing up the idea that Dany is taking a few too many cues from her father, the “Mad King” Aerys.

“I’m not here to murder — bend the knee and join me, or refuse, and die,” she tells the few Lannister soldiers who survived her flamethrower routine. 

Her apparent lust for power definitely seems to have Varys shook, as we see him telling Tyrion, “You need to find a way to make her listen.”  Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 4 finally gave us the battle we’ve been waiting six seasons to see

TwitterFacebook

This recap is dark and full of spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 4, titled “The Spoils of War.”

Are you still shaking? I’m still shaking. 

Episode 4 finally brought Daenerys Targaryen to mainland Westeros — a monumental power play that’s been six seasons in the making. 

Dany’s grand entrance is huge for a number of reasons, not least of which is that our many-titled Khaleesi desperately needed a decisive victory over the Lannisters after losing Dorne, the Iron Islands and The Reach in the last two episodes.

Should we be worried about Jaime after that ‘Game of Thrones’ cliffhanger?

TwitterFacebook

This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 4, titled “The Spoils of War.”

Season 7 has not been kind to Jaime Lannister. 

Over the course of four episodes, our favorite Kingslayer has been disrespected by no less than his sister, punk rock pirate Euron Greyjoy, and Olenna Tyrell, who actually managed to use her own death scene to destroy him with the most epic display of shade in the show’s history.

To add insult to injury, Cersei is apparently feeling confident (read: arrogant) enough that she’s now ignoring Jaime’s desire to keep their effed up incestuous relationship on the DL by openly flaunting it in front of the hired help, all while promising Euron that she’ll probably marry him someday maybe if he’s good just ask again later okay?

A koala walks into a pharmacy, and all people could do was watch

TwitterFacebook

Koalas are native to Australia, but it’s not everyday you see this.

Shoppers at Tocumwal Pharmacy in Tocumwal, Australia were stopped in their tracks when a lone koala decided to have a little stroll through the store on Friday.

It’s not clear why the koala chose to enter the store out of several others along the street, but all people could do was watch on and wait for the koala to leave.

“It was so relaxed and cruisy,” pharmacy assistant Gabby Wiles told 9 News

Eventually, the pharmacy’s staff called a vet, who advised them to “let it do its thing” and escort it down the street to the nearest tree.  Read more…

Everyone lost their minds during that last battle in ‘Game of Thrones’

TwitterFacebook

Spoilers follow for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode four. So don’t act like you haven’t been warned, dummy. 

HOOOOooooooooo boy. That last scene. 

Well, well, well. Instead of sending her dragons to burn King’s Landing to the ground and ruling a pile of ash, Dany decided to bring one dragon to burn down all of King’s Landing’s food. Makes sense.

Victorious Lannister troops, fresh off their win at Highgarden, were truckin’ along back home with all the food to feed their massive army and the city at large. And wouldn’t you know it? A Dothraki horde just so happens to be heading that way, too. Oh and Khaleesi riding a dragon was there as well. You know. Death.  Read more…

That ‘Game of Thrones’ Stark family reunion had the internet 😭 😭 😭

TwitterFacebook

Spoilers follow for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode four. So don’t act like you haven’t been warned, dummy. 

Finally, (most of) the Starks are back together. 

With winter falling all around Winterfell, it was only fitting that the Starks have a family reunion for most everyone who’s still alive. 

This episode saw the triumphant return of Arya. Though two dullards tried to keep her out of her own home, there’s no stopping a girl who is no one and it led to a very emotional reunion with Sansa over their father’s grave. Things were only made more weepy when Bran joined them by the weirwood (even though he’s v creepy now and wtf is he).  Read more…

Elon Musk reveals SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch animation, and it’s amazing

TwitterFacebook

We’re only about four months away from the first SpaceX launch of the most powerful rocket ship on the planet, the Falcon Heavy, and now we have an idea of what that’ll look like.

In a post on his Instagram page on Friday, SpaceX founder Elon Musk revealed a new animation that shows exactly how he hopes the launch of the massive spacecraft will come off. 

There’s no dramatic music or special effects. Those aren’t needed — the process alone is amazing enough. First we see the Falcon Heavy lift off, and soon after its two booster rockets separate and return to Earth in controlled landings, intact and ready to be prepared for future missions.  Read more…
