    Honestly, I’m just glad after next week that it will be over.  It’s been an entertaining run, but after eight seasons and a lot of tedious reading it will be nice to have something different to talk about on Mondays.  

    I have little faith in GRRM ever finishing the books now.  

I dunno if there will be many more shows watched by so many people in the future. Audience is more and more fractured so no more water cooler talk. I mean, if we're not talking sports. I doubt Westworld is watched by many. I don't think Watchmen will be either, but who knows.

It didn't feel like a shock to me at all.

It was a shock to some though, see people who got Dany tattoos or named their kid Khaleesi. I agree with you, it's there in the show. Some people just don't want to see what's being intimated I guess.

Did the show put too much of a premium on shock?

 

Kind of skimmed through the article, but yes, as a book reader, Dany turning mad was inevitable. She's not the heroine portrayed for most of the show. I didn't like her much at all in the books.

   I agree with what you’re saying, but I also said the same thing about LOST.  I might not be for a few more years, but there’s bound to be some show that starts off well enough to capture our collective interest.

The petition is more a way to complain than an actual expectation for them to do anything.

Why isn’t it winter? 

They made such a big deal about it coming, and then “winter is here.”  But isn’t their winter supposed to last years? I’m concerned that the makers of skis, snowshoes, etc., in Westeros are getting shortchanged.

Winter was defeated. And, well, it's winter up north, but King's Landing is like South Carolina, I guess.

   That’s it for that, I guess.  I’m not sure what I was expecting to happen, but I was hoping for more than an hour and a half (just about) of talking.

    • ... I disagree wholeheartedly man.  I think that there are 100s of ways to think about any particular desired move but that only a few (sometimes 1) will actually engage the proper body parts to actually improve a golf swing rather than give a false appearance of improvement.    Ive been playing since I was a kid (20 years) and working on my swing like crazy for 10 years and went through 1000s of swing feels. I was always able to make my swing “look” better but never work better.  It wasn’t until I got the right feel that engaged the right muscles that everything changed and started to feel way easier.      Fair enough. I should say in my opinion. I’m probably going to end up disagreeing with 99% of people on here about the golf swing though haha.  You teach them how to make it work correctly... I feel that most instructors go through a “play book” of swing thoughts / feels to correct flaws until they find one that gives the appearance of improvement. 99% of the time those thoughts don’t actually engage the correct muscles and are only aesthetic. For example, You can have someone who rotates the shoulders way too flat on the backswing but is still on plane with the club. That’s a “fake out” in my opinion because that’s evidence that the hands and arms are forcing the plane rather that the body dictating it.  I work on getting them to feel the correct body motion to engage the correct muscles.   
    • Alright, so in your opinion, what are the best swing thoughts / feelings for each phase of the swing that you feel actually engage the correct muscles and encourage good sequencing. One for the backswing, downswing, and follow through.  I think that there are 100s of ways to think about a particular desired move but that only a few will engage the proper body parts to actually improve a golf swing rather than give a false appearance of improvement.    Ive been working on my swing for 10 years and went through 1000s of swing feels. I was always able to make my swing “look” better but never work better.  It wasn’t until I got the right feel that engaged the right muscles that everything changed and started to feel way easier.  For me it was all about my backswing and ensuring that my body coiled correctly and shoulders rotated steep enough. From there my downswing takes care of it self. I felt like my left shoulder works very low by thinking keep my left shoulder OFF of my chin. This made me turn way steeper and coil better. Swing speed jumped 8mph with driver and accuracy is WAY better.  So I’m curious what are some keys that you found that changed your game for the better?  .    
    • I work part time a local muni.  I am allowed free play and free cart at any time I can get on which is frequently.  I must admit I walk quite a bit and when I do use a cart I usually have a paying customer or two playing along.  When I complete my round with a cart, I usually wash it and get it ready to go again.  I feel they are giving me free golf and free cart, it is the least I can do. It's all good as far as I'm concerned. 
    • Walking is OK but rolling the ball on a green would be practising. See rule 5.2
