Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Big Brother US18: I ACTUALLY HAVEN’T WATCHED IT YET LOL. Good thing is that I’m not keeping track of the spoiler feeds this time around so I really don’t know what’s up in the house other than the knowledge of a few houseguests.
Descendants of the Sun: If you are someone who vouched for this show…we need to have a chat about how/why this show is good. The writing is super cheeseballs.
Game of Thrones S6: LYANNA MORMONT FOR THE IRON THRONE. But
Hotel Hell S3: Drinking game: every time Gordon Ramsay says “stop it” take a drink.
iZombie S2: Finally finished season 2! I love this show so much.
Orphan Black S4: Can you believe Season 5 is going to be the expected FINAL season? TATIANA FOR EMMY OSCAR EVERYTHING. But really that last episode was all PROTECT COSIMA THE BIGGEST CINNAMON ROLL OF ALL.
Reign S3: Okay, deaths and terrible romances aside, when Mary actually does shit, it’s interesting (e.g. when she’s en-route back to Scotland).
Scream S2: Really hoping the killer is someone who will actually surprise me…
The Mindy Project S4: Still do not ship Jody and Mindy.
Spotlight: This movie is an explosion of khaki everything. Also it makes me want to be an investigative journalist!
Mr. Right: Why did I watch this film? Anna Kendrick being Anna Kendrick. Otherwise, it was pretty bad.
Captain America: Winter Soldier: The problem watching this film for the first time is that since I already saw the trailer for Civil War, I’m basically spoiled with the knowledge of a certain character. Soooooo.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Game of Thrones – Light of the Seven: YES…THIS FUCKING SONG. UGH. I bow down to you, Ramin Djawadi.
Jonas Blue – Perfect Strangers (feat. J.P. Cooper): Tropical house dance. That is all.
Martin Jensen – Oops: If you’ve ever played any video game in the 90s, this track is like an homage to it. Straight up robotic sex, no vocal backing.
Cash Cash – Broken Drum (feat. Fitz of Fitz & The Tantrums): A jazzy dance track.
Kapslap – Felt This Good (feat. M. Bronx): Still listening to this song since last month oh my. It is officially summer and I am happy even if the sun continually singes my skin.
Solano – Rise Up (feat. Bitter Kiss, Life in Colour 2016 Anthem): Life in Colour is a musical festival with lots of colour paint. This is the anthem this year.
Alan Walker – Sing Me To Sleep: I love how the music video was filmed in Hong Kong. But if you haven’t listened to Alan Walker’s previous ethereal smash Faded, then here you go.
Attom – Better: Super chill. Super groovy.
Ryos – Where We Are (feat. Karra): I’m electronic music trash.
A great book hauling month. Standard blogging month with the caveat that I’m probably a month behind all of my comments LOL. Damn, I suck.

Haha I think the graph you did is so cool. Great wrap up!
Arya is totally Lady Stoneheart reincarnate! LOL I also don’t see the Jody & Mindy ship. The False Prince looks interesting & that’s one hell of a graph *thumbs up*
Can we also talk about how Varys went to Dorne and back to Meereen in a disturbingly quick fashion? Or Arya. Or, really, all of the f*cking characters. Do they have airplanes now? The S&S Fall Preview sounds fun.
I play the Light of the Seven in my phone whenever I need to occasionally blow up someone in my imagination. This music is now my life
I usually like Sam Rockwell, but … Mr. Right … what even is this film?
But I definitely need to pick up that drinking game for Hotel Hell! Did you watch the Vienna Inn one? Aside from the owners being absolute creeps, it was the first time I wasn’t totally cool with the redesign they did. Of course it looked better, but the hotel had a theme – aka Vienna – and that was TOTALLY gone afterwards!
LET’S TALK SCREAM 2!
Big Brother is kind of decent right now. Lots of twists (including three eviction nominees) this time around and no BOTB! 😀 I won’t give any spoilers or anything though since you haven’t been watching or keeping up with them. I actually haven’t been keeping up with spoilers either. I just wait to be surprised during the episodes, lol.
I find it cool that you plot your ratings into a graph. 😀
