    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.

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

 

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.

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 have been listening to the Unspooled podcast which is methodically going through the AFI top 100 list. Recently rewatched back to back, The Post and then All the President's Men (for the umpteenth time, I love this movie) because it covered the latter movie. While I respect the opinions of the podcast, it has had its criticisms of movies that I love, like Saving Private Ryan for one, but I learned a lot from the hosts, and that held for ATPM, like I did not know as much about Muskie as I should have. I tossed aside The Post as awards fare, but on rewatching it, I enjoyed it more, especially being able to put ATPM on right afterwards, a great double bill. The latest Unspooled is on Vertigo. May rewatch that as Vertigo is another of my all time faves. Vertigo, episode #55 of Unspooled on Earwolf Paul & Amy fall into Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 psychological thriller Vertigo!  
    • I would agree with @dennyjones.   Typically if it's just out playing around, I'll often try to do the harder wedge shot through the "V" in the 80 ft tall trees.  I'm in the trees often enough that iv'e had too much practice so it's a higher % shot for me.  If the score is important, I will take the shot that I think give me the best chance at advancing the ball, whatever it might be.  Every round is some kind of learning, some more than others. My course typically doesn't have many people when I'm there, so I will often play 2-3 balls at the same time unless I have someone behind me, then I will let them play through. You can still learn while enjoying and having fun.
    • Hopefully, you learn something from every experience. Of course, some of us learn faster than others. Obviously when playing a round that counts, you play for the lowest score. That's why there really is something to be said for practice rounds, particular when the course isn't busy and you can try different things.  As time goes by, the strategy for each hole on the course changes through learning. The hole where I used to lay up in front of the hazard has become a hole I know I can hit GIR if my drive gets to a certain place on the fairway. Now its just a matter of hitting that darn driver. It's a process.
    • For competitions, etc absolutely.  For fun daily play?  I disagree, it's my game, I can make the purpose of that day whatever I like. I have days where I feel like taking on that cool shot.  So I do - just for fun, knowing that my score will be hurt.  So what?  I want to try the shot and I'll take my medicine when it doesn't go well. Other days, I play for score and try to select my shots as best I can based on my limited knowledge, skill and experience. It's a game - I do what I want.    
    • Went from an 8 to a 15 in the blink of an eye after that fiasco. Every time I tried to go back to my "feel" swing, his "advice" would creep in and just make the issue worse. Went from trying to minimize a 'slight' pull with the shorter irons with 'my' swing, to fighting full on snap ducks after. I've been able to slowly get back some measure of control, but a quacker shows up way too often.  Last year I had a video evaluation and was informed I tended to keep too much weight on my heels which probably was the original issue. If Dingus Pro had said that while working WITH my swing instead of trying to change everything to get more money out of me, I'd be a much happier guy.
