iHeartRadio parent warns it may not survive another year
lol, the infamous mist tunnel.
Thank you for listening it was a bit of a rattlesnakeA little bit, heh, heh.
I'm zooming through Season 2 and I'm pretty impressed. Some of the places like Dragonstone and the Iron Islands look just like I pictured them (both interior & exteriors). Also the excellent casting continues - Yara, and Stannis for instance.
So far I'd say this series is an excellent case study in how to write an adaptation for the screen. The writers have clarified the main plot lines, brought the essence of each character into sharp relief, and drawn a cohesive picture of the world in which everything takes place. Some of the dialogue is as excellent or even better (or at least more succinct) than the book. Sure some details are lost in this process, but that's the trade-off. In this case I'd say it mostly works.
Still I wonder how well people who haven't read the books are faring with the complexity? For sure it's dramatically reduced but it still makes it easier when you're like "Oh, there's Davos!".
Society seems to have tacitly accepted such unruly behavior, even encouraged it. Everywhere you go now, libraries, restaurants, dentist/doctor waiting rooms, you see adults with this "I-don't-hear/see-anything" glazed look on their faces. It's a nice if uncommon occurrence nowadays to hear a parent actually control their kids (or at least attempt to - it's the thought that counts).
Remember awhile back, some restaurant tried to disallow kids below a certain age from eating there. It was immediately picked up by the nat'l news as "anti-children" or some such hysteria. What a joke, there's a zillion 'family restaurants' where kids have free reign , but oh noes, we can't have one place where I can enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee without some kid throwing his crayons at me.
Anyways I've pretty much given up on this, so for food I either 1) do take out, or 2) go to a place that serves food in the bar area which is a no-go zone for the little wildlings.
Another version of what happened, but there is no verifiable link:
From Eric, another customer on the AA flight:
I was on this flight directly across the isle from the woman filming the video. This is what I observed: 1.) woman gets on the plane pushing a car seat type stroller with one child in it, carrying a second child on her hip and dragging behind a very large folded stroller that was too big for the overhead bin or to go under a seat. 2.) the flight attendant shown in the video approached from the back of the plane and informed her in a calm manner that there was nowhere to store the stroller. ...
