Winter is coming. All men must die. And Game of Thrones is back!

Stay tuned each week as we unpack Sunday’s episodes through masterpieces.

Echoes of the carnage of battle – sounds all too familiar to medieval warriors – filled last night’s episode of Game of Thrones.  This week’s visual recap features several images from the 15th century World Chronicle, since after all battles do make for legendary stories filled with plenty of bloodshed and formidable enemies like mammoths, vicious foreign tribes, and giants (imagined foes even in the ancient world).  When preparing for battle, some retreat to study the wisdom found in books, others spy on enemy movements, and some are asked to defend the walls of centuries-old fortifications.  When the situation looks bleak, be sure to have a hungry wolf at hand.

my brain is a glob of german goo, since I decided 2 weeks ago “hey why not learn german?” 

and someone just handed me a jar of homemade blackberry jam. So I think the universe is telling me I need to make biscuits & eat those all night with jam & coffee, and more german. 

//AND sorry about lack of posts, I’m working on loading up meh queue~
