Oh wait.

I’ve never been good at clickbait headlines. Unless you clicked on this one to tell me how stupid I am, in which case… GOTCHA!!!

There’s a great twitter account called @FilmClickbait, and as the name indicates, it busts entertainment “news” sites that post clickbait. As you’ll find all over the Internet today:

I guess you could say all those sites are…

( •_•)>⌐■-■

dragon it out.

If all those sites just gave away the big news in the headline, you wouldn’t need to click through to find it. Then there would be no point in having all those important “news” sites. Welcome to 2017!

Game of Thrones is an okay show, I guess, as long as you keep in mind that George R.R. Martin is never going to finish the book series and you’re never going to know the “real” ending. I’ve never been able to get more than 20 pages through the first book, but if you’re into that sort of fantasy stuff, check out Joe Abercrombie’s “First Law” series. The first book is only $2.99 on Kindle, so it’s worth a shot. It’s set in a fantasy world, and there’s a bit of magic and whatnot, but it’s more swords than sorcery. And the characters and dialogue are a cut above most of the other stuff I’ve read in that genre. It’s bleak and cynical and pessimistic, but hey, you might like it.

If you’re a big nerd, that is! Which I am.

Anyway, Game of Thrones. July 16. Maybe by then I’ll remember what happened last season…
