18 Games of NFL Glory

We are still nearly a week away from the NFL’s Super Bowl 48, but speculation has already begun about what changes could be coming down from Commissioner Roger Goodell and the owners of the NFL’s 32 teams over this offseason, and one idea that has been resurrected has been the scheduling of an 18 game regular season rather than the current 16 game season we currently enjoy. I had some thoughts about this way back in 2010 that you can enjoy here.

What are your thoughts about an 18 game regular season?

Write Like the Wind (George R. R. Martin) by Paul and Storm

 

And because I couldn’t find a link to the lyrics anywhere, here are the lyrics:

Write Like the Wind

 

 

 George R. R. Martin please write and write faster

You’re not getting any younger… you know

Winter is coming, and I’m growing impatient

and you’ve still got two whole damn books to go

 

So write George write… like the wind

 

I curse the day that my friend ever loaned me an old dog eared paperback called A Game of Thrones

How could I know that the seed would grow into an addiction that held me right down to my bones

Now five books later I work with the masses indignant, entitled, and waiting for word

that great bearded glacial has finally published 900 more pages of crack for the nerds

 

Why does every new verse of your song keep taking you so goddamn long?

 

George R. R. Martin please write and write faster

Please give us more letter, sigils, and steel

We need our allotment of incest and intrigue

and six page descriptions of every last meal.

So write George write… like the wind

 

Lewis took five years to chronicle Narnia

Tolkien had twelve years, and Rowling took ten

Lucas spent nearly three decades on Star Wars

and we know how that one turned out in the end

 

You’re not our bitch, and you’re not a machine

and we don’t mean to dictate how you spend your days

But please bear in mind in the time that you’ve had

William Shakespeare churned out thirty five frigging plays

 

And if you keep writing so slow,

You’ll hold up the HBO show

 

George R. R. Martin please write, and write faster

cause we won’t stop whining until we’re appeased

Crack out the chapters and George while your at it stop killing our favorite characters please

 

and write George write like the wind…

George R. R. Martin please write and write faster

before you are dead George please write like the wind

The Most Astounding Fact - Neil DeGrasse Tyson

It is on a beautiful day like today, that I am reminded of this answer given by Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to the question from a TIME magazine reader, “What is the most astounding fact about the universe that you can share with us?”

How Disney Purchased Star Wars And Its Plans for Star Wars

by George Spigot

If you ever were curious about exactly how Robert Iger convinced George Lucas to sell Lucasilm to Disney, then this piece over at Bloomberg Businessweek should answer many of your questions.

Plus Lucas all but confirms that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford will appear in the next film *huge relief*!
