While watching the “Game of Thrones” season two finale, I couldn’t help but notice the ultimate decision HBO decided to make with regards to Tyrion’s battlefield injury.
According to the books of George Martin, the injury was to leave Tyrion horribly scarred and disfigured, even removing his nose.
When Shae revealed the injury, the only thought I had was: “He looks like Omar now.”
OMG HBO OMAR-IZED Peter Dinklage.
Coincidence? Oh indeed. But, if it was intentional, well done sirs. Well done.
Now, here’s hoping to Peter Dinklage whistling “Farmer in the Dell”, eating Honey Nut Cheerios, and rocking a shotgun in season 3.
“The cheese stands alone.”
Today, we introduce a new feature: Sundays with Liam.
In this new feature, we will spend parts of certain Sundays with our favorite Irish actor, Liam John Neeson. Previously nominated for an Oscar, fittingly for his portrayal of an Oskar, Mr. Neeson is clearly talented, and if you’ve watched his many movies, thoroughly entertaining. Inspired by the movie, “Taken,” which is quite possibly one of our favorite movies of all-time, we will from time to time, spend our Sundays with Liam. So, sit back, relax, and stop bitching.
It’s only a flesh wound.
In our inaugural edition of SwL, (Yes, we’re at the point where it’ll be abbreviated by an acronym), we will stay away from Mr. Neeson’s more well-known fictional roles, and instead watch his breathtakingly funny and side-splitting guest spot as well….himself on Ricky Gervais’ and Stephen Merchant’s “Life’s Too Short.”
Before you click on the link, what you need to know is that Warwick Davis, the protagonist of the the show (WILLOW!), plays a struggling actor in the same mockumentary style of “The Office” (both U.K. and U.S.). In this scene, Liam Neeson plays an exaggerated version of himself as he decides to pursue a new direction in his career.
Typically you’d think a sketch based on jokes about contracting AIDS and such would not be funny at all but as Ricky has proven before, it’s possible.
But this video absolutely slayed me and I’m convinced it’s the funniest 4 minutes of television I’ve seen in 2012. I dare you to refute that claim with video evidence in the comments section below. Typically not known for his humor but more for his dramatic roles and it seems more recently in his action-movie vehicles, it was nice to see our boy Liam kill us with laughter for a change.
“I’m a funny guy. Aren’t I?” (Silence)
“You notice this list? I’m always making lists. In fact, that’s probably why Steven Spielberg cast me as Oskar Schindler in ‘Schindler’s List’. I said, ‘Steven, I make lists. All the time.’ And he said, ‘That’s exactly what I’m looking for.’”

No, this post isn’t about the your second grade science project where you made a volcano. Or the one in third grade where you grew an onion. (Hey now. We’re not here to judge the quality of my childhood science projects.) But rather, it’s what my roommates and I like to call that tupperware container you’ve left in the fridge for the past four months. Please allow me to rant. Thank you. Read more
Two cool sports-related Memorial Day stories:
The first is about Daniel Rodriguez, an army veteran who served tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and how he’ll now be walking on at Clemson to play some ball for Dabo Swinney.
The second is about New England Patriots offensive lineman Marcus Cannon doing what he can to help out an Iraqi war veteran.
Check out both stories. It’ll be worth your time.
