37 Seriously Intense Braided Hairstyles Only Daenerys Targaryen Could Pull Off

Spend any time on Pinterest and you’ll encounter a lot of braids. Who knew there were so many different kinds? Lace braids and French braids and Dutch braids and feather braids and waterfall braids, OH MY. While many of them are gorgeous and totally accessible for the average chick with two hands and a dream, I’m constantly seeing braids that make me do a double take and say, “Wait, is that a braid or a complex math equation?” Braids on braids on braids! A vortex of braiding! Look at some of these too closely and you’ll fall into a deep braid-hole. Seriously, these braids are so intense, only the Queen of Braids Dragons, Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen herself, could pull them off. Click through to see what I mean…

25 Reasons To Love Tyrion Lannister From “Game Of Thrones”

tyrion-lannister

Last week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” will go down in history as one of the show’s best, mainly because Tyrion Lannister is the coolest “GOT” character of all time.

Over the past three seasons we’ve witnessed him pull some pretty amazing moves, but his trial was by far the most brilliant speech the show has seen yet. And although we are worried/love him, we are confident that Tyrion Lannister is just too badass to be killed off anytime soon. Read all 25 reasons Tyrion Lannister is the most hardcore character on “Game of Thrones” on Your Tango…

Ser Pounce Could Help Too!

Tyrion Lannister stands accused of a crime he didn’t commit, but his dad and sister have stacked the jury with people determined to find him guilty of King Joffrey’s murder. There’s only one man who could get to the bottom of this, find the real killer and get Tyrion the justice he deserves — Detective Elliot Stabler. DUNK DUNK!

Lily Allen Declined Incestuous Role Opposite Her Brother Alfie On “Game Of Thrones”

“I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and shit. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks.”

On one hand, I’m like, Who turns down a role on “Game of Thrones,” especially a role as cool as Yara (Asha) Greyjoy?! And on the other hand, I’m like, I don’t think the honor of being on one of TV’s best shows would be enough to scrub away the memory of my brother touching my tits. So yeah, I get it, Lily Allen, I get it.

11 Shows You Need To Watch If You Want To Be Relevant

To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.

The official lyrics being, of course, Gaaaaaaaaame of fuckin’ thrones, game of fuckin’ throooooonnnnnes (over and over again till the end). But these lyrics for the earworm-y “Game of Thrones” theme song are just as good, focusing on Peter Dinklage, who plays everyone’s favorite character, Tyrion Lannister. There’s a third version of the lyrics we sing in my house – Luuuuucca, lucca luuuu, lucca luuuuuuuuuu (over and over again till the end) — but I don’t expect it to be embraced by the masses anytime soon.

Dude Dateability: Ranking The Men Of “Game Of Thrones”

It’s not easy out there in the trenches of modern love. Finding someone even somewhat acceptable to go to dinner with is a struggle, never mind a person you want to see more than once a week.  While sifting through duds on OKCupid and swiping left on every single match that comes your way on Tinder, your mind might start to wander towards the kind of men that existed at a time when things were more rustic, more dangerous, with more fur capes and dragons. Maybe you’ve cast a critical eye to the comforting glow of your Sunday night television lineup, and realized the answer has been streaming into your home every Sunday on HBO. “Game of Thrones” is a veritable buffet of available, attractive men. When faced with so many options, what’s a girl to do? Don’t worry, we got your back. Here’s our definitive ranking of the men of “Game of Thrones” by dateability.

George R. R. Martin Distances Himself From That “Game Of Thrones” Rape Scene (But I’m Not Done Ranting)

George R. R. Martin Distances Himself From That "Game Of Thrones" Rape Scene (But I'm Not Done Ranting)

If you still haven’t seen Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” stop right here, as there are spoilers ahead and besides, you need to get on that shit. 

George R. R. Martin, the author of the “Game of Thrones” series, A Song of Ice and Fire, has weighed in on Sunday’s controversial episode, in which Jaime Lannister raped (yes, raped) his sister Cersei in a scene that was a distinct and obvious departure from the way he had originally written it. As I wrote yesterday, the scene in the book features consensual if icky sex between the blonde siblings, who’d long been lovers, as they mourned the death of their son, King Joffrey. On the show, however, Jaime very clearly rapes Cersei, as she struggles, says “no” and “stop” repeatedly. The assault was seemingly out of character for Jaime, given the way the books/show had worked to humanize him, and not only presents major problems for the character’s trajectory, as far as I’m concerned, but kills the sexual chemistry between him and Cersei (something I quite enjoyed). And all any of us who found the scene horrifying and disappointing have been able to ask is WHY? Seriously, WHYYYYYY?

Martin weighed in on his blog, posting the following thoughtful if distancing point of view on what the show producers/directors might have been thinking: Keep reading »
