Re: Watch&Play vid

I don't know which Watch & Play that is from but the replays of the streams get posted to the LoadingReadyLive YouTube account. In particular the Watch & Play replays should be found in the Watch & Play playlist.

Re: Game of Thrones (Contains spoilers)

Game of Thrones is hardly the only adaptation that lost the sense of passage of time. The events of the Lord of the Rings (from Biblo's party to Frodo and Bilbo's departure from the Grey Havens) takes twenty years. The main events of the novel - from when Gandalf tests the Ring in Frodo's fire to th...

You are forgetting the White Walkers. I assume Bran has some part to play in how they are resolved. I see Jon trying to fight off the White Walkers while Littlefinger plots his downfall. Meanwhile, Cersei is quite content having the world burn around her as Daenerys attacks. Will Jaime have to been...

Given Cameron's resignation, it would be counter productive for negotiations to begin in earnest until his replacement is in place in October.

Re: Feed Dump 257 - 'Till All Are One

To be really pedantic, the Earth isn't a perfect oblate spheroid either. The geoid - the shape sea level would take in the absence of tides and winds - differs from the reference ellipsoid by up to a hundred metres. The south of India is about a hundred metres lower and Papua New Guinea about a hund...

I fucked up remote observing due my own laziness. The forecast and weather data look poor at sunset so we decided to abandon the observations then rather than waiting a couple hours to see if conditions improved. I have to admit this was partially motivated by myself wanting to go back to sleep - I ...

If you can vote in Britain, please remember to register to vote in the EU referendum - you must do so before June 7th. No matter what option you have on Britain leaving the EU, this is a major decision that everyone should have a voice in.

Re: Captain America: Civil War. Spoilers.

I rather enjoyed the stakes being smaller and more personal in Civil War. I think it is healthy to tell different sorts of stories with The Avengers in particular and superhero movies in general.
