WARNING- SERIES 6 SPOILERS AND 7 THEORIES AHEAD!!

 5 things to look forward to in game-of-thrones 7

GoTh is back- but I’ve been way behind in blogposts and videos lately, so there won’t be a dvd review of series 6, or a ’12 jaw-dropping moments’-style write up, though a few might make it into this ramble.

Anyway, Tiglet joined the Night Watch and came up with Five Reasons he’s excited about it as well-

 

5)-

Will The Hound meet Arya Stark again?

He came back in style last season and looks like he’s joining with Thoros and Dondarrion. Now Arya’s avenged the Red Wedding (another jaw-dropper!) So will they meet up again, now she’s working on her To-Kill-list?

 

4)-

Queen Cersei cracking down?

She wiped out The High Sparrow and probably most of his Religious order, but there’s probably a few more scattered about. She’s made so many enemies though, will House Lannister stand alone?

 

3)-

Jon Snow’s true parentage.

Oh my Geeky Goddess- what a twist. Bran knows, but he’s got to get past the Wall and back to Winterfell pronto- will he make it? Probably not something to send by Raven!

 

2)-

Dragons back in Westeros!

It’s become something of a thing for the series to end with a Dragon-shot, but series 6 outdid them all. Daenerys also had so many moments- Walking out of the flames of the Dosh Kaleen, riding Drogon, setting slave fleet on fire and the final scene, leading the Allied Targaryen fleet, Dragon Banners leading the Khalasar to Westeros, her allies alongside. But where will they land? In Dance of Dragons, the Golden Company got scattered all over the Stormlands, but there’s a rumour she’s heading North, but wherever she ends up, get ready for War!

 

1)-

Will the Night King and the Whitewalkers reach the Wall?

There was something in the novels about a Horn that might have the power to break the Wall. Benjen Stark (Coldhands in the books) mentioned there’s spells protecting the Wall, but what if they fail? It’s clear that it’s all crashing together- will Daenerys vision of a Throne room in ruins and covered in snow come true???

So there are a few questions that could get answered in the seventh series, plus a few of my own theories about how it may go.p14160794_b_v8_aa

We’ll just have to watch with baited breath-

Winter has come and The Long Night is falling-

GAME OF THRONES SERIES 7!

Ian’s Travelblog Adventures 2017- Where on Earth (and beyond!) is ITA going these Days?

119He might have gone round the wall, off the reservation, into the great big beyond. Those might be some answers I’d have, if I was being the new Mr. Man character- Mr. Sarcy-pants.

Okay, I will admit the hiking might have seemed to have flown South for the Winter and needs a new GPS system to find its way home again. Not that I’ve given up on it, but time, money (LACK OF BOTH), resources (old boots etc) and work has meant putting updates off time and again, though videos have been pretty-well kept updated, it’s been a nightmare, not quite of Elm Street-proportions, but close enough!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA last year, creating ‘Tigletverse Travel and Photography’, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest recently. The Blog/Storysite badly needs updating, but I thin I may have found a better page/platform for the whole shebang! It is difficult to try and keep things updated, even remotely interesting, but I shall persevere. That brings me to my next point- There is a possibility I’ve been humming-and-harring about over the past few months and I think it’s time to put it to the test, try it out and see if if works, if not, aha well, meandering Mercer will find something else to do I suppose. I’ve been using 500 Miles by the Proclaimers meets metal cover by Eric Calderone, but thinking of changing it, maybe to Rush Hour by Jane Wiedlin, or Manic Monday by the Bangles, but favourite so far is Bon Jovi’s Lost Highway. Just have to see how it goes. Better get hiking then hadn’t I? Just watch out for blisters!

So, there it is the BIG update- I’ve been to Talacre Beach/Dinas Bran castle / Chinese New Year / Went sightseeing with a Friend from L.A. / been to West Kirby Marine Lake for an awesome sunset, as well as from Halton castle. Watch the vids, look at the pics, hopefully on a new platform by the end of the month (or month after that!) and maybe, just maybe, we might get some organisation round here!

That would make a nice change wouldn’t it?!

STAR WARS REBELS and the Snaggletooth Quest

4th alwaysMay The 25th be with you! Belatedly of course. Seems the 40th Anniversary of the release of Episode 4 a New Hope slipped through my fingers like Star Systems through Governor Tarkin’s, as Leia said it would!

 

Anyway, Rebels series 3 has just finished, following Ezra Bridger and the rag-tag crew of the Ghost, a Millennium Falcon-type ship that seems to be part setting up ANH and the New Trilogy and part product-placement for Disney toys.

So after the climatic finale Zero Hour I watched Rogue One and A New Hope back-to-back, which was a great watch, though the ending of R1 was a bit abrupt, but tied in well to the start of ANH.

I’m playing the first Star Wars Battlefront game on the ps2 again, so I may have to blog that at some point!

I also went to Warrington Market Comic Con at the weekend, which was okay, but saw more toys for sale. I bought an AST-5 for five pounds at For the love of Sci-Fi in December, so have been looking at other stuff. The price of original Kenner-edition toys are bloody ridiculous though, you would think Lucasfilm would just remake them, but a bit better, especially Darth Vader. I must have had about half a dozen headless Vaders- looked like some kind-of Robot without a head!

the snaggletooth quest1

Anyway, I’ve since come to the conclusion that all this ‘collectability’ nonsense is just that. Looking out for a red or blue Snaggletooth that costs at least £80 is a bit of a ripoff. So I’m giving that quest up and just going to enjoy whatever happens with Rebels and The Last Jedi, though it will probably be about Luke giving up the Light and the dark and being like the Bendu, be the one in the middle.

One thing I did like was watching Boogie Storm- the dancing Stormtroopers, complete with Meco’s 70’s Disco theme!

 

Time to get groovy and Feel the funkyside of the Force!!

Attack on Titan, Series 2- Episode 7- SMACKDOWN!

Awesome episode of AOT Tonight. Since I read all the spoilers on Wikipedia (Manga, not Anime) I’ve known it was coming for a while, but the epic reveal and (literal) clash of the Titans as Eren takes on the Colossal and Armoured is stunningly shocking.

I won’t say anything else- but gee, what an epic battle- but what’s happening with The Beast while all this is going on???the_trainees_offer_up_their_hearts_to_mankind

So, all four Human-Titans are out of the closet.  Next there is a death of a major character- but you didn’t hear that from me!

How’s it gonna end, that’s what I don’t know yet, but am looking forward to finding out- I’m just going to steer clear of spoilers from now on!

 

mothers day

insightful

I’ll start off this post on a positive note by wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day, Modern Philosophers. The truth of the matter, however, is that not everyone celebrates this holiday. For some of us, Mother’s Day is a very painful day to endure. My Mom died when I was three, and I have absolutely […]

Anything can happen on a 360 shoot!

050Since Liverpool Comic Con, I have been trying to come up with a plan, a way of doing things differently than just going round taking random pictures and trying to edit everything into a semi-coherent video. In the end, I ended up with seven videos- The general walk around/’event’ vid, the Rwby shoot, the Star Wars shoot, My Superclark shoot, two versions of the Doctor Who shoot and three versions of the Cosplay Masquerade, plus Louise Brealey from Sherlock.

While moderately satisfied with the results, I did feel I needed to do something a bit different. I then remembered a guy at Ellesmere Port CC who shot a 360 degree video, which is like a composite of shots- I still don’t really understand how it works, but it got me thinking how could I achieve something similar?

Anime League and Rainbowdrop Cosplay organised another Big Geek Meet in Liverpool, which was my fourth in the two years I’ve been going to events/Cons/Meetups and so on. There was also a shoot in Southport, so I tried it out. Caitlin as Eren (mislabelled Levi) and me spinning round at BGM on the Saturday was okay, but doing individual shoots on Sunday worked much better, with about ten done.

I had to have a try myself to see how it worked, even though each shoot was only a minute or so, with added pictures and (mostly) relevant music. I am fairly happy with the results, so think I will carry on doing more of the same.

So, I guess Anything can Happen on a 360’ Shoot!
