The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ might not air until 2019 and how are we supposed to live?

TwitterFacebook

We have good news and bad news: Season 7 of Game of Thrones is apparently “amazing,” according to HBO boss Casey Bloys, but after it airs, you might have to wait until 2019 for Season 8 — and even longer for any of the potential prequels that HBO is developing. 

In a new interview with EW, Bloys laid out the timeline for the final two seasons of Game of Thrones and when we might expect to see a spinoff — reiterating that HBO and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are focused on sticking the landing with the final 13 episodes of the series before the network starts thinking about any offshoots.  Read more…

Artist combines animated cats with fidget spinners and it’s fascinating

TwitterFacebook

Independent designer, Jonathon Odom created a gadget that is truly internet-worthyAccording to Odom, “Fidget spinners are supposed to help you focus, cat videos were invented to distract you. I combined the two, so they probably cancel each other out.”

Odom was inspired by a 19th century device called a zoetrope and fidget spinners which are an extremely popular stress-relief toy. The coolest part is that he blessed the world with instructions so you can make one yourself.

Don’t have a 3D printer lying around? You can buy an animated fidget spinner from Jonathon’s store here. Read more…

Sad cock fails hard at rooster-ing, and we can’t stop laughing

TwitterFacebook

Hey, little guy. You OK?

Youtube user Žiadny Šéf uploaded this video of a rooster trying and failing really hard at delivering a majestic rooster crow. 

The rooster winds up to give everyone a grand ol’ “cock-a-doodle-doo” and completely conks out at the end. It’s as if someone flipped his off switch during his big moment. Maybe he’s some kind of pre-pubescent rooster suffering from an unfortunate and embarrassing voice crack?

Whatever is happening here, it’s the saddest attempt at rooster-ing we’ve ever seen. 

(Tip: the more times you watch it, the harder you’ll laugh.) Read more…

TwitterFacebook

One day after Donald Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change, the president’s own views on climate science are under increased scrutiny. And a Friday press briefing only muddied the waters further.

While taking a guest turn in the White House press room, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, who played a key role in advising Trump to leave the Paris Agreement, refused to answer basic yes or no questions on Trump’s climate change beliefs.

For a lot of audience members, mostly women, the film’s mere existence is cause for joyfully tearing up a bit.
