My iPod Has Issues – Filling the Television Void

16 Jun

Last night, the fourth season of Game of Thrones came to an end. That means I will feel something missing over the next few Sunday nights. It is rare that I get caught up in an episodic television show. Usually, I watch sporting events or documentaries. However, I have been addicted to Game of Thrones since it first began.Game of Thrones

I, along with millions of other people, will have to wait until next year to find out what happens to our favorite characters. I reckon I could read the books to find out, but I hear that the show is deviating from the books. With that in mind, I will skip the written page and stick to the television screen. I may go back and read them once it is all over.

To fill the void, I have decided to explore the meandering mind of my iPod. For those who watch Game of Thrones, you know that a lot of crazy stuff goes on in the land of Westeros. With that in mind, it is fitting to see what crazy stuff is going on in the mind of my insane iPod.

Let us look inside and see what can be found.

Pretty crazy, huh?

    Not a fan of Game of Thrones, probably because I DID read several of the books before realizing I didn’t want to ever read another. But I’ve been caught up in enough other series to share you pain, in a generic way. I feel that way when ever a book series I’m following ends. Leaves me wondering what I’m going to read now?

      I was at a loss when I finished Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, too. You get emerged in these worlds, and then they are gone.

    Bought the books .. haven’t read them.
    If Tyrion went down though I was ready to head for the showers. But I didn’t expect him to assassinate a couple of people on his way out.
    Hell of a series. About the best thing on TV right now.
    Expect if they release ‘Extended’ Editions on DVD it will be worth a re-watch.

      I didn’t think Tyrion was going to die. He always finds a way out. I watch two shows – Game of Thrones and Justified. Everything else I leave to others to watch.

    I’ve never watched Game of Thrones. I’m sure I’d love it, but feel like I’d have to start at the beginning and that would be a lot of effort. Ah, choices!

    • Rick June 17, 2014 at 14:13 #

      You would definitely have to start at the beginning. It’s as if every scene leads to something later on.

    Gordon Lightfoot – now that I haven’t heard in a long, long while. And ‘The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald’ was one of my favourite Lightfoot songs. I remember having introduced quite a lot of people to his music back then.

    • Rick June 18, 2014 at 04:26 #

      I saw him in concert to hear that song. He has some other good ones, too.

        Oh! he does. Thanks for bringing him up. Time to dig into the collection 🙂
