‘Game of Thrones’ Fan Theory Suggests Sansa Stark Could End Up Married to Jon Snow

11 minutes ago

(Spoiler Alert: This post contains spoilers for both the TV series and the “Song of Ice and Fire” books) “Game of Thrones” is notorious for throwing characters together in bizarre marriages, but this one would take the cake. A new fan theory posted by vlogger Alt Shift X suggests that there are hints already in place in George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels that suggest Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who were raised as siblings, could end up tying the knot in the TV series. Before you vomit, consider the evidence. »

‘What Is Aleppo?’ Guy Has 6 More Newspaper Endorsements Than Donald Trump

17 minutes ago

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson may be better known for his head-scratching gaffes than his policies but he’s still scoring more major newspaper endorsements than Donald Trump. Yep, you read that right. The guy who can’t name a single world leader — dead or alive — has endorsements from six daily newspapers as of Friday. Ironically, that’s still six more than Trump, who has so far racked up zero endorsements. By the way, that’s a record for a major-party presidential candidate… though not the kind politicians usually aim for. On Friday, Johnson scored the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune, »

‘Luke Cage': Here Are All the Songs Performed on the New Marvel Show (Videos)

39 minutes ago

Marvel’s “Luke Cage” may be a show about a really strong dude who’s also bulletproof, but it’s also all about black culture in general — and it puts a heavy emphasis on music. One of my favorite things about “Luke Cage” is a series of musical performances we see at Harlem’s Paradise, the club that the villain Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes owns. These performances are intercut with the action in sequences that function similarly to a music video. There are six of these sequences in all, starting in the series premiere with Raphael Saadiq playing to a full house as three young. »

A New Year for Reconciliation Despite Trump-Clinton Slug-Fest (Guest Blog)

2 hours ago

This is a company town. As rabbi to a very entertainment-industry centric congregation, I am often called by film makers and entertainment executives to consult on projects, or to weigh in on disputes. We are really no different than other communities whose orbit and attraction pulls from a common interest. Because our business is communication, we often lose site of the power that our words and images have, especially during these times of social media turmoil. There are so many divided families and longtime friendships being torn apart over, you guessed it, politics. The depth of disdain for each candidate. »
