I'm the copy chief & an occasional writer for The Stir. I really like grammar and words and very nerdy books, which is weird to most people. I live in downtown New York City, but you can always find me at a Pittsburgh Steelers bar during football season on Sunday. I like the Steelers so much that I even blog about them.
Tweets and Vine videos are still pouring in making fun of the loathed, hated, twisted King Joffrey. Though you can't help but feel a tiny bit bad for Jack Gleeson, the poor actor who plays Joffrey and actually seems like an affable, decent guy. Just goes to show Gleeson's talent at such a young age to be able to conjure up this kind of Internet vile. Of course, George R. R. Martin is equally to blame for creating such a despicable character in the first place!
Oh, come on, you know you've been in complete withdrawal ever since season 3 ended. It was one of the best seasons of television in the history of television, and I'm not exaggerating. Now that winter's officially, definitely here (are you sick of hearing that yet because I'm not), praise the gods for giving us a sneak peek at what Game of Thrones is going to bestow upon us come spring 2014.
Tyrion Lannister gets arrested?! Is that King Joffrey's Purple Wedding?! Is Sansa rocking a new hairstyle?! Is Jaime's new hand ... golden?! Who is that on the white stallion?!?! Not sure if I've used enough punctuation marks quite yet, but come on, nerds, all of this is sadly pretty exciting.
Some sad news out of the entertainment world today. Peter O'Toole, who became famous after achieving superstardom in Lawrence of Arabia and was nominated eight times for an Academy Award, has died, according to his agent. He was 81.
His first Oscar nomination was for Lawrence of Arabia in 1962, and he was able to become a prolific, masterful actor even up until he received his last nomination for Venus in 2006. It seems he set the record for most nominations without ever winning the award, but he also accepted an honorary Oscar back in 2003. O'Toole was also very well known for his role as Pope Paul III in The Tudos and even lended his voice as the scary-looking Anton Ego in Ratatouille.
Oh no, looks like Jenelle Evans' pregnancy with her second child hasn't been keeping her out of jail. Jenelle was arrested yet again in South Carolina and charged with breaching the peace. Records show that she was booked into the Horry County jail at around 6 p.m. on Saturday and was released an hour later.
But still, you'd think with all the talk about a reconciliation with RPattz, then she turns him down to spend the holidays together, there could be something else brewing and adding fuel to the fire of a budding relationship between her and Lane. I mean, why else would you turn down the chance to spend Christmas in London with Robert Pattinson?!
