King of the Dwarf

So, who is the king of dwarfs? The right answer is Peter Dinklage of course.

Peter Dinklage AKA Tyrion Lannister is best known for his work in game of thrones as part of the incest baby making rich dominant Lannister clang although he isn’t like the other members of his family.

Before and since game of thrones he has had many big roles in the acting business including films the likes of Death at a funeral, Sesame street, X-men and Lassie.

Peter is actually quite tall for a dwarf being 4ft 5 inches and being from New jersey USA I can imagen he must of had some stick growing up before the fame hit him.

In 2005, Dinklage married Erica Schmidt, a theatre director, and they had their first child in 2011. The family lives in New York city When asked about his height in a 2003 interview, Dinklage said:

“When I was younger, I definitely let it get to me. As an adolescent, I was bitter and angry, and I definitely put up these walls. But the older you get, you realize you just have to have a sense of humor. You just know that it’s not your problem. It’s theirs.” In 2012, New York times interviewer asked Dinklage whether he saw himself as “a spokesman for the rights of little people”. Dinklage responded: “I don’t know what I would say. Everyone’s different. Every person my size has a different life, a different history. Different ways of dealing with it. Just because I’m seemingly okay with it, I can’t preach how to be okay with it. I don’t think I still am okay with it. There are days when I’m not.”

Peter has also been a vegetarian since the age of 16.

long live Peter.

Lucy

   

Its nice to see Scarlett Johansson in a lead role again which she plays rather well. Some may say that with a male lead the film could of been improved but the fact that it is a women puts a spin on the action genre and makes its more desirable to watch for both male and female film fans.
This has also worked with Zoe Saldana in the losers and colombiana, Angelina Jolie in the tomb raiders and mila Jovovich in the resident evils.
If you are 20 minutes in to the film and you’re thinking of turning it off or leaving then don’t because believe me it does get better.
In them first 20 minutes I wouldn’t blame anyone for finding it disappointed as there is no explanation as to why Lucy’s boyfriend has the case of drugs in the first place. Who he is? or where he came from?
However if you move past that and past those first 20 minutes and you like a bit of blood, death and fighting then you wont be disappointed as Lucy sets out to find the group of Asian gangsters to implanted this drug inside where which allow her to access more of her brains than usual as she will eventually die when 100% of her brains becomes accessible.
Killing pretty much all of them in the process Lucy succeeds in her plan but her guaranteed death does arriving. Well at least in human form anyway.
Morgan freeman (now 77!) also plays a vital role in the movie as Lucy seeks out information from an expert professor Norman.
He and Scarlett are both in the final scene which see’s Lucy unlock the mystery of life at the cost of her own.
I give this film 7/10
Scarlett Johansson has defiantly become a more daring actress in recent years and I do believe we are going to be seeing this Danish beauty a lot in the near future.

F*#k the Burger king by Sandor Clegane

Surprisingly the hound doesn’t like burger king, even with the chicken burger included in his meal. Its “not real chicken” apparently. Before he sleeps at night he has to say the name of the company because he doesn’t know the name of all the staff that work in his local store. ” burger king burger king burger king  zzzz……”

The fries… don’t get the hound started on the fries. As a child Gregor and himself ordered a large number of fries after a long day of murdering. The rumours that Gregor put his head into the flames to get that scar of his are wrong. It was actually these fries which were still to hot to eat which Gregor through at his face as a joke.

Yet another reason why he is not finger licking good at his people skills. Before killing a person the hound asks the victim if they like burger king. If they answer no then he may just break there legs.

Fuck the burger king.

Mew and montana

Montana is a state in the Western United States. The state’s name is derived from the Spanish word montaña (mountain). Montana has several nicknames, none official, including “Big Sky Country” and “The Treasure State”, and slogans that include “Land of the Shining Mountains” and more recently “The Last Best Place”. Montana is ranked 4th in size, but 44th in population and 48th in population density of the 50 United States. The western third of Montana contains numerous mountain ranges. Smaller island ranges are found throughout the state, for a total of 77 named ranges that are part of the Rocky Mountains.

The economy is primarily based on agriculture, including ranching and cereal grain farming. Other significant economic activities include oil, gas, coal and hard rock mining, lumber, and the fastest-growing sector, tourism. The health care, service, and government sectors also are significant to the state’s economy. Millions of tourists annually visit Glacier National Park, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, and Yellowstone National Park

Etymology and naming history

The name Montana comes from the Spanish word Montaña, meaning “mountain”, or more broadly, “mountainous country”. Montaña del Norte was the name given by early Spanish explorers to the entire mountainous region of the west. The name Montana was added to a bill by the United States House Committee on Territories, which was chaired at the time by Rep. James Ashley of Ohio, for the territory that would become Idaho Territory The name was successfully changed by Representatives Henry Wilson (Massachusetts) and Benjamin F. Harding (Oregon), who complained that Montana had “no meaning”. When Ashley presented a bill to establish a temporary government in 1864 for a new territory to be carved out of Idaho, he again chose Montana Territory. This time Rep. Samuel Cox, also of Ohio, objected to the name. Cox complained that the name was a misnomer given that most of the territory was not mountainous and that a Native American name would be more appropriate than a Spanish one. Other names such as Shoshone were suggested, but it was eventually decided that the Committee on Territories could name it whatever they wanted, so the original name of Montana was adopted.

Map of Montana
With a total area of 147,040 square miles (380,800 km2), Montana is slightly larger than Japan. It is the fourth largest state in the United States after Alaska, Texas, and California; the largest landlocked U.S. state; and the 56th largest national state/province subdivision in the world. To the north, Montana shares a 545-mile (877 km) border with three Canadian provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The state borders North Dakota and South Dakota to the east, Wyoming to the south and Idaho to the west and southwest.

Topography

The topography of the state is roughly defined by the Continental Divide, which splits much of the state into distinct eastern and western regions. Most of Montana’s 100 or more named mountain ranges are concentrated in the western half of the state, most of which is geologically and geographically part of the Northern Rocky Mountains. The Absaroka and Beartooth ranges in the south-central part of the state are technically part of the Central Rocky Mountains. The Rocky Mountain Front is a significant feature in the north-central portion of the state, and there are a number of isolated island ranges that interrupt the prairie landscape common in the central and eastern parts of the state. About 60 percent of the state is prairie, part of the northern Great Plains.

The Bitterroot Mountains—one of the longest continuous ranges in the entire Rocky Mountain chain from Alaska to Mexico —along with smaller ranges, including the Coeur d’Alene Mountains and the Cabinet Mountains, divide the state from Idaho. The southern third of the Bitterroot range blends into the Continental Divide. Other major mountain ranges west of the Divide include the Cabinet Mountains, the Anaconda Range, the Missions, the Garnet Range, Sapphire Mountains, and Flint Creek Range.

Montana terrain
The northern section of the Divide, where the mountains give way rapidly to prairie, is part of the Rocky Mountain Front. The front is most pronounced in the Lewis Range, located primarily in Glacier National Park. Due to the configuration of mountain ranges in Glacier National Park, the Northern Divide (which begins in Alaska’s Seward Peninsula) crosses this region and turns east in Montana at Triple Divide Peak. It causes the Waterton River, Belly, and Saint Mary rivers to flow north into Alberta, Canada. There they join the Saskatchewan River, which ultimately empties into Hudson Bay.

East of the divide, several roughly parallel ranges cover the southern part of the state, including the Gravelly Range, the Madison Range, Gallatin Range, Absaroka Mountains and the Beartooth Mountains. The Beartooth Plateau is the largest continuous land mass over 10,000 feet (3,000 m) high in the continental United States. It contains the highest point in the state, Granite Peak, 12,799 feet (3,901 m) high. North of these ranges are the Big Belt Mountains, Bridger Mountains, Tobacco Roots, and several island ranges, including the Crazy Mountains and Little Belt Mountains.

St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park
Between many mountain ranges are rich river valleys. The Big Hole Valley, Bitterroot Valley, Gallatin Valley, Flathead Valley, and Paradise Valley have extensive agricultural resources and multiple opportunities for tourism and recreation.

East and north of this transition zone are the expansive and sparsely populated Northern Plains, with tableland prairies, smaller island mountain ranges, and badlands. The isolated island ranges east of the Divide include the Bear Paw Mountains, Bull Mountains, Castle Mountains, Crazy Mountains, Highwood Mountains, Judith Mountains, Little Belt Mountains, Little Rocky Mountains, the Pryor Mountains, Snowy Mountains, Sweet Grass Hills, and—in the southeastern corner of the state near Ekalaka—the Long Pines. Many of these isolated eastern ranges were created about 120 to 66 million years ago when magma welling up from the interior cracked and bowed the earth’s surface here.

The area east of the divide in the north-central portion of the state is known for the Missouri Breaks and other significant rock formations. Three buttes south of Great Falls are major landmarks: Cascade, Crown, Square, Shaw and Buttes. Known as laccoliths, they formed when igneous rock protruded through cracks in the sedimentary rock. The underlying surface consists of sandstone and shale. Surface soils in the area are highly diverse, and greatly affected by the local geology, whether glaciated plain, intermountain basin, mountain foothills, or tableland. Foothill regions are often covered in weathered stone or broken slate, or consist of uncovered bare rock (usually igneous, quartzite, sandstone, or shale). The soil of intermountain basins usually consists of clay, gravel, sand, silt, and volcanic ash, much of it laid down by lakes which covered the region during the Oligocene 33 to 23 million years ago. Tablelands are often topped with argillite gravel and weathered quartzite, occasionally underlain by shale. The glaciated plains are generally covered in clay, gravel, sand, and silt left by the proglacial Lake Great Falls or by moraines or gravel-covered former lake basins left by the Wisconsin glaciation 85,000 to 11,000 years ago. Farther east, areas such as Makoshika State Park near Glendive and Medicine Rocks State Park near Ekalaka contain some of the most scenic badlands regions in the state.

The Hell Creek Formation in Northeast Montana is a major source of dinosaur fossils. Paleontologist Jack Horner of the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman brought this formation to the world’s attention with several major finds.

Rivers, lakes and reservoirs

Montana contains thousands of named rivers and creeks, 450 miles (720 km) of which are known for “blue-ribbon” trout fishing. Montana’s water resources provide for recreation, hydropower, crop and forage irrigation, mining, and water for human consumption. Montana is one of few geographic areas in the world whose rivers form parts of three major watersheds (i.e. where two continental divides intersect). Its rivers feed the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and Hudson Bay. The watersheds divide at Triple Divide Peak in Glacier National Park.

The watchers on the wall

After last week’s blockbuster Game of Thrones, we were left as horrified as Tyrion Lannister and as giddy as the giggling Arya. The Red Viper is dead—with the Mountain appearing not far behind from that diagnosis either—and everyone’s favorite character on television seems destined for a rendezvous with the “King’s Justice.” Or at least that of his conniving father’s.

So, the prospect of waiting an extra week to follow up on that showstopper of gore and excitement in favor of an entire hour devoted to Jon Snow and the Wall would normally seem like a grisly option. Fortunately though, this week also marked the return of features director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers) behind the camera and an all-in HBO budget for the biggest battle in television history (at least not related to HBO’s multiple World War II miniseries). Indeed, it was Jon Snow’s finest hour in the series’ entire run.

To be sure, “The Watcher on the Wall” is the most unique and curious of Game of Thrones’ four penultimate episode season closers. While the last three seasons featured the year’s “climax” culminating in the ninth episode, usually in spectacularly gory detail with a handful of dead Starks, this is the first time the penultimate episode does not actually feel like the “finale.” In fact, by cutting the battle short (we should have more definitive revelations about the direction of the conflict next week), it marks Game of Thrones’ most traditional of penultimate TV episodes by laying the groundwork for an even bigger blow to come next week.

And yet, it would be hard to argue that “The Watchers on the Wall” isn’t the most cinematic hour of Game of Thrones’ entire run!
Perhaps making up for lost time due to how little build-up there has been for this battle when compared to the slow boil bloodbath in Blackwater Bay witnessed during Season 2, much of this week’s show is about developing interest in the outcome early through long overdue character moments between Jon Snow, Samwell Tarly, and pretty much all the other brothers in black. It seems dubious that after four years of non-book readers confusing Grenn for Dolorous Edd, and being unsure if Janos Slynt and Ser Alliser Thorne are the same person, that they may have developed the emotional attachment intended by writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. However, the central focus of the initial 20 minutes pays off in dividends, as it will likely be the first time that viewers have ever cared about the fate of Sam and Gilly, and even remembered why they liked Jon Snow so much in the first place during Season 1.

This is first and foremost a credit to the actors bringing their A-game. Kit Harington, John Bradley, and even Peter Vaughan as the ever-wise (and Targaryen name-dropping) Maester Aemon are allowed to really shine in their hour-long showcase tonight. But the real star of the hour is Marshall’s direction. From his opening shots of Snow and Tarly on the wall to the confident tracking dollies that follow them through the garrison’s meager provisions at the top and the inadequate armaments below, this is bullish filmmaking on a (staggering) TV budget. The visual flair of practically each frame in the episode helps highlight that the Game of Thrones budget has grown considerably to literal mammoth-sized proportions since Season 2’s “Blackwater,” and Marhsall’s vision has proven equally robust. With sweeping images of raiding parties attempting to flank the Wall from the south all the way to the fire toward the north beyond it, this is epic in scope. Of special note is a jaw-dropping crane shot that takes advantage of every square inch available on the Castle Black set in Dublin, following Jon’s first foray into the interior chaos of Giantsbane’s raiding party within the Wall to Sam finally letting Ghost out of his cage.

But all the spectacle is couched in a character driven series that allows it to stand head-and-shoulders above its bigger budget epic contemporaries that storm cinemas every so often. Which again brings us back to Snow and Tarly. Jon Snow, a highlight during the first season of Game of Thrones, has been clearly underserved by the visually dazzling location shooting in Iceland during Seasons 2 and 3. Forced to rely on swift, economical scenes to rapidly tell the character’s story beats in the midst of unforgiving frozen weather, the sequences reduced Jon’s impact on previous seasons more than any character not named Bran or Rickon Stark. As a consequence, Season 4’s sudden stakes about the fate of the Wall have seemed nearly perfunctory. Until now.

“The Watchers on the Wall” reminds audiences why Jon Snow is such a likable character. And it isn’t because he has the coolest direwolf of all the Stark kids or that he gets to fight the occasional ice zombie: it’s due to being the most true-blue fantasy hero in a series that despises fantasy archetypes. Unlike Robb Stark who thought the world would bend its knee to his wishes, Jon Snow is a “good son” of Eddard that lacks the illusions of his father and siblings about the kindness of strangers. As a bastard, he will never amount to much more than he is now as a brother of the Night’s Watch. But his dedication to this purpose rarely seems foolish, save if Ygritte’s biting words are around, and his altruism is genuinely refreshing in a show stuffed with so many scheming and self-serving narcissists.

Thus his determination to defend the Wall in the oncoming waves of overwhelming odds gives the character a noble light more reminiscent these days of Michael Caine in Zulu or Fess Parker’s Davy Crockett myth at the Alamo than that of the Arthurian boy hero. And by extension, the desperation of his closest friend and greatest professional enemy are also greatly compounded when given a full hour to breathe.

Much like “Blackwater” and even the 20-plus minutes devoted to Joffrey’s wedding in this season’s “The Lion and the Rose,” all of the many tangled subplots at the Wall are allowed to breathe in the expanded running time focus. Hence actual audience engagement in Sam’s longing for Gilly, which previously has felt like abrupt filler when sandwiched between escalating political intrigue plots in King’s Landing.

Aye, Sam’s newfound courage in being able to curse out Pyp in order to save Gilly, and to then hold the comrade in his arms at the point of death before fighting on, all feels like hard earned character moments. To believe that the pathetic craven who laid on the ground in Season 1 is the same guy who can whip bravery into Pyp—and for it to also feel earned—is quite the achievement on Bradley and the writers’ part. As is Owen Teale’s Alliser being able to concede that Jon Snow was right about filling the tunnels, which led to the rather bittersweet loss of half a dozen brave souls beneath. Snow still has an out-and-out foil in the cowardly Janos Slynt who hides with Gilly in the bowels of the Wall, a choice that Sam miraculously avoids. But Alliser proves for the time being that he has the realm’s interest at heart too by fighting the good fight alongside Jon Snow in his own hateful way.

Still, the most important and crucial relationship of the night, and perhaps Jon Snow’s entire character arc, is his connection with Ygritte. The girl who was kissed by fire was also once the girl kissed by Jon Snow before he abandoned her for his oath and duties. Benioff and Weiss add heavies who were either on different sides of the Wall during this battle in the book (Giantsbane) or entirely made up for the show (Thenn), however at the end of the day, it boils down to an agonizing lover’s quarrel between Jon and Ygritte. It is also the greatest stroke of genius by George R.R. Martin in this set-up. The only thing that prevents the Wildlings from becoming the faceless marauders of Night’s Watch gossip (and American frontier propaganda) is the human face Ygritte gives to their rightful misgivings toward the Westerorsi. They refused to bend a knee to the Men of the Andal and were thus cursed to live in a land of eternal winter where every few millennia, the dead may rise. But probably most egregiously, they can be left high-and-dry by men who say the love him.

Ygritte is a complicated character that deserved more screen time than she received in Season 4. Primarily forced to simply slaughter Westerosi villagers before tonight, her random sparing of Gilly and babe last week has been the single shred of humanity she was previously allowed to show. But this week, Rose Leslie devours the screen in her Swan Song of rage and anguish for Jon Snow, a man she claims to hate so much that any passerby can see it is obviously love.

So, when she dies in Jon Snow’s arms, it hurts. Sincerely, it is the most painful death of the season. Joffrey had us applaud while Lysa made us snicker. And the Red Viper, as awesome as he was, ultimately appears to be a lamb meant for the slaughter, solely created so Martin could bemusedly snatch him away from readers. Yet, Ygritte is the one who’s time felt inevitable since she and Snow had reached a point where one’s claim for Wall supremacy would fall beneath the other’s blade. And since it feels like Jon Snow’s road has at least one more episode to go, it was time for Ygritte’s final bow. And she takes it in a scene far more melodramatic than the ambiguous end she meets in A Storm of Swords, but it is every bit as painful to see her go. It might appear that the charismatic Ms. Leslie is headed for bigger things than playing Jon Snow’s doomed, lost love, but to realize this is the last time we will hear “You know nothing, Jon Snow” is more than a touch bittersweet.

This week also shockingly bid farewell to Pyp and Grenn, two characters who did not die in this battle in the books. While some readers may howl, it marks another vote of confidence on Benioff and Weiss’ part about where they are headed, and when that includes following ice anchors and burning hot liquid metal, it is likely most fans will be okay. However, one destination it also headed for is an abrupt conclusion.

Unlike Season 2’s much more finale styled “Blackwater,” the ninth episode of Season 4 does not conclude its siege of choice. When tonight’s episode ended, The Battle of the Wall is still very much up in the air with Jon Snow and friends winning a momentary reprieve until their thousand-to-one ratio is tested again by another night of attack from Mance Rayder’s apparently limitless force. Ergo, Jon Snow’s decision to entreat with Mance, a character that has strangely been absent all season, is a tantalizing one. While Marshall unleashed the series’ biggest spectacle yet, the character moments that might decide the fate of the Wall have been saved for the season finale.

It is a bold choice that breaks the mold, but much like the episode’s build-up, it feels somewhat deflating. “Blackwater” gave audiences a clear winner-and-loser conclusion to its scenes of war and carnage, leaving audiences exhilarated. From what we’ve so far seen of The Battle for the Wall, it is an exhausting and draining affair that browbeats viewers just as much as Jon and Sam upon finding the lifeless corpse of Grenn in the tunnels before the inner-gate. And that comparison also brings sad contrast to how well-developed the Battle of Blackwater Bay was on all sides from the mixed feelings viewers had for Tyrion and Cersei’s intertwined fate to the destinies of Stannis and Davos too. Save for Ygritte, there is likely not one Wildling that audiences gave a lick about, and only the most pure “A Song of Ice and Fire” fan will weep for the bitter end of Pyp.

The watcher on the wall is one of my favourite episodes of the series so far.

I would like to mention the performance of Kit Harrington (jon snow) and John Bradley(Samwell Tarley) which was outstanding.

Freddy Krugar goes to Las Vegas

Freddie’s journey continues on his search to find a new jumper, he thought what better place to search than Las Vegas often known as simply Vegas, is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Nevada and the county seat of Clark County. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining and nightlife and is the leading financial and cultural center for Southern Nevada. The city bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its mega casino–hotels and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, Las Vegas is the 31st-most populous city in the United States, with a population at the 2010 census of 583,756. The 2010 population of the Las Vegas metropolitan area was 1,951,269. The city is one of the top three leading destinations in the United States for conventions, business and meetings. Today, Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

His first stop was Caesars palace which is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment Corporation and is located on the west side of the Strip, between the Bellagio and the Mirage. The hotel includes a convention facility of over 300,000 square feet (28,000 m2).

Caesars has 3,960 rooms in six towers: Augustus, Centurion (now Nobu), Roman, Palace, Octavius, and Forum. The Forum tower features guest suites with 1,000 square feet (93 m2) of space

Freddy decided he could search all the rooms for a new jumper so over the next year there were many mysterious deaths happening within the premises. When he reached room 3960 he started to realise he is not going to find his jumper here so he then chose to take the left down to reception and exit the hotel.

As he was leaving he bumped into the ghost of tupac who told to expand his search to the gran canyon. its a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, and the Havasupai Tribe. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery.

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet or 1,800 meters). Nearly two billion years of Earth’s geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. While the specific geologic processes and timing that formed the Grand Canyon are the subject of debate by geologists, recent evidence suggests that the Colorado River established its course through the canyon at least 17 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River continued to erode and form the canyon to its present-day configuration.

In the distance Freddy spotted a red object blowing in the wind, he ran! as fast as he could. he thought this was the moment he would find his jumper.

Turns out it was a dead hooker.

maybe next time he will find his jumper….
