Game of Thrones Deviating From the Books Again

Since the first four episodes are officially released for the fifth season of Game of Thrones, there are certain things quite clear. The most important among them is the possible death of Barristan. The 4th episode ended with a horrifying image – maybe Barristan is dead. The same could have been said for Greyworm but that seems a bit unlikely. In the books, both the characters are still alive but that hasn’t stopped the show from doing what freedompop review wants before. Here are a few characters that were already dead in the show but not so much in the books at that stage –

Jojen Reed – In the show, a weak and already dying Jojen was killed by his sister who couldn’t see him suffering. In the books, however, his fate is unclear. There is a popular fan theory that he could be dead, though.

Grenn – Grenn is already dead on the show where he fought the giant and killed him, but also died in the process. In the books, however, this member of the Night’s Watch is still pretty alive.

Talisa/Jeyne – The show included her in the number of people killed at the Red Wedding. Her unborn child was also killed. In the books, she is still alive and would become a part of the upcoming book’s prologue.

Other characters with a similar fate include Joyeuse Erenford, Pyat Pree, Rakharo, Irri and Mago.

Big Bird Puppeteer Since 1969 Has No Plans to Retire

In 1962, Jim Henson and Carroll Spinney met at a Puppeteering convention when Henson propositioned Spinney about joining the Muppets. It wasn’t until late 1969 that Mr. Carroll Spinney donned the world famous huge yellow bird costume for the first time as Big Bird on Sesame Street. Once again, in 1969, Spinney attended the Puppeteering convention where Jim Henson was also in attendance. This time, Carroll Edwin Spinney was eager to take the Muppet creator up on his offer. The puppeteer of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch have no plans to retire soon set producer Susan McGalla confirmed (more at Forbes).

Carroll Edwin Spinney was born in Waltham, Massachusetts on December 26, 1933. His love for puppets began when his mother used to take him to see Punch and Judy shows. In 1955, he began his career as a puppeteer, appearing in such puppet shows as Rascal Rabbit, the Judy and Goggle Show, and Bozos Big Top.

When Jim Henson created Big Bird, the yellow feathery creature was goofy until it was decided that he would serve a better purpose helping children learn. Big Bird learned how to read, recite the alphabet, and count with the children. Big Bird will always be 6. At the same time, Spinney needed to play a darker character in addition to Big Bird. Spinney also played Oscar the Grouch, a green mop-like character who lives in a trash can and has a nasty attitude.

Everybody Loves A Dadbod

If you haven’t heard of the term “dadbod” you are missing out. Just last week the term went viral and was a firestorm across the internet. All 20-something females were talking about their love for the dadbod. In case you missed all of the dadbod talk, let me fill you in.

Dadbod is a term used to describe a guy’s body who isn’t obsessed with working out but isn’t totally sloppy fat either. Take Vince Vaughn or modern-day Leonardo DiCaprio, both have what we would consider to be a dadbod and the ladies seem to really dig it.

There are many reasons why women love the dadbod. For one, this body type isn’t at all intimidating. If you’re still trying to picture a dadbod, just imagine a guy that goes to the gym a few times a week, nothing over the top. This guy also likes to drink on the weekends and eat out, so his diet isn’t strict or limiting. Obviously with these habits, he’s not going to have a rock hard six-pack and that’s okay. Women feel much more comfortable around a guy who is content with himself.

Guys should take note at this latest craze laughs Alexei Beltyukov on AboutMe. Perhaps busting it in the gym six days a week is no longer necessary to score a date with a hot chick. Instead, they should feel at ease with their love for beer and pizza and the occasional gym session. The dadbod is perfect for letting girls know just how fun you are. We know you won’t be too upset if you miss a gym session to grab wings and beer for the big game instead.

LiLo’s Lost in Translation

Lindsay Lohan has been a major star in news, usually for negative rather than positive things. Her mishap with the Arabic language is no exception reports Gianfrancesco Genoso.

Recently, it seems like she’s taken an interest in the Arabic language, as on Monday April 20, she had tweeted “habibi”, which is a term of endearment for both lovers and family. She then proceeded to post a picture on her Instagram that said “You’re beautiful” in English, with some Arabic written above it.

Non-Arabic speakers assumed that it was a direct translation, but people soon found out that that was not the case. Many Arabic speakers responded to her, revealing that instead of saying “you’re beautiful” in Arabic, the picture said “you’re a donkey”.

Realizing her mistake, Lohan deleted the picture from her Instagram not long after, but not before social media became abuzz with her laughable mistake.

Thankfully, for her, it was a removable picture, not a tattoo.
