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. Sometimes browsing through Twitter gives me heart palpitations. 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.
After you watch the trailer for Don Jon, which tells the tale of a man who's addicted to pornography, you're most likely not going to believe that the main character is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is the same kid who was in 3rd Rock From the Sun and 10 Things I Hate About You? Inconceivable. Now he's buffing up, rocking a New Jersey accent, and seducing the incredibly gorgeous, girl-crush-worthy Scarlett Johansson in this latest flick that he both wrote and directed.
My, my, how times have changed.
As Jon Martello, aka Don Jon, says, "There's only a few things I really care about in life. My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn."
Amen to that, I guess? Yeah. You know you have to watch it now.
If anyone out there is a fan of Game of Thrones (and I know there are plenty of you), you're well aware that the show is just as famous for its intriguing storylines, complex characters, and plot twists as it is for its ... um, violence and nudity.
There can be so much, in fact, that this show should never be watched with one's parents. Ah, the joy of HBO shows. Still, it was kind of shocking, after what we've seen the last three seasons, to hear that one of the stars has refused to do any more nude scenes in Game of Thrones.
Sadly for us, we don't know which star it is! But we've got a few guesses. And though we can't help but respect an actress who knows her boundaries -- this is kind of hard to say, but without all the violence and sex, the show just wouldn't be the same.
Well, this is just gross. A man in North Carolina has apparently taken it upon himself to tattoo his tiny, innocent puppy's belly ... and then of course post a photo of it on Facebook. Ernesto Rodriguez is a disabled army veteran and father of three, and he says his 4-month-old puppy, Duchess, has the intricate tattoo to help ID her. His other dog, Duke, is sporting the same one.
But he's got animal lovers all up in arms, many of whom are calling what he has done animal cruelty and demanding that the dogs be taken away or that he should be banned from buying any more pets. Still, it seems that Rodriguez has no regrets. But you gotta ask, hasn't this guy ever heard of microchipping?
OMG, only two episodes left of Game of Thrones after tonight, this cannot be happening. In "Second Sons," this week marks the hour before probably one of the most epic, heartbreaking moments of the third season, the Red Wedding (as all fans of A Storm of Swords know).
It's been an amazing season so far, and these last few episodes should be the best we've ever seen. This is why all fans of A Storm of Swords were trying to convince their friends to check out this season, and this season alone. And "Second Sons" did not disappoint.
There's only so much filler I'm sure you're willing to take. There are some massive SPOILERS AHEAD if you haven't seen "Second Sons." Please proceed with caution. After all, the Internet is dark and full of spoilers.
You're not going to believe what I'm going to say next. You just won't. There are only THREE episodes left in what's been a badass third season of Game of Thrones. We've seen some major moments for Daenerys Targaryen, Jaime Lannister, and Jon Snow, and fans are hoping that the season is going to end on a ridiculously high (yet most likely tragic) note.
On Sunday, "Second Sons" is the leadup to what's going to be one of the craziest episodes ever ("The Rains of Castamere") -- or so readers of A Storm of Swordsthink. So, what the heck, might as well speculate what we're going to see in "Second Sons," and try to figure out what exactly the title is referring to. This is what Sunday is for, after all. Game of Thrones.
SPOILERS TO COME. If that wasn't obvious enough. If you don't want to know what happens in the book, check out some cat gifs instead. You're welcome.
