Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Binge On "Orange Is The New Black" Season 2, Read Me Before You & Learn To Braid Your Bangs

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this holiday weekend!

Leave Tyrion Alone! Plus, 8 TV Character Deaths That Crushed Me

Warning: This post contains spoilers about the most recent episodes of “Game of Thrones.”

Uh oh, y’all. I’m worried. After last week’s gruesome conclusion to “Game of Thrones,” in which Oberyn was defeated by Gregor Clegan in the battle to the death that determined Tyrion Lannister’s eventual fate, I’ve started to get really, really concerned that the Imp might not make it out of this season alive. But would George R. R. Martin really kill off such a vital and beloved character? Of course he would! He’s done it time and time again! But if Evil Bitch Queen Cersei gets her wish and has Tyrion executed for the murder of King Joffrey, I will be wrecked. Wrecked!

Listen, as a semi-professional TV watcher, I’ve endured plenty of TV character deaths without shedding a tear, so this isn’t me being melodramatic. Walter White? Saw his death coming and, in fact, hoped for it. Brody on “Homeland”? Whatever, that tiny mouth annoyed me. Andrea on “The Walking Dead”? Did a jig on her fictional grave! But some TV deaths have hit me harder than others. Dear God, “Game Of Thrones,” please don’t make me add Tyrion Lannister to this list…

“Louie,” Attempted Rape And Awful Questions

This piece was crossposted with permission from Happy Nice Time People.

Louis C.K. did terrible grabbing, pushing, forced kissing and more to a lady on his teevee program “Louie” and everyone was freaked out. He tried to drag her into a bedroom and it was disturbing and I can’t watch the whole clip all at once because it makes me feel weird inside in an uncomfortable fashion, and not just because fanfuckingtastic Pamela Adlon was the voice of my beloved Bobby on “King of the Hill.” Jezebel has a good thing about it that you can read and ponder.

I do not like seeing this Comedy Hero pretend-attempt to rape a lady, which is probably good, because if I were into that sort of thing, I should probably be in even more therapy. Anyway, I think “Louie” starts important conversations on important things, and it’s the closest thing we presently have to the socially conscious sitcoms of the ’70s and early ’80s (and also “Roseanne,” thank you very much) and that is why we’re talking about it right now.
