TV Series Opening 29: Vikings

This series is not for those who faint at the faintest sign of blood.
Cause here it's not the faintest...

TV Series Opening 28: The Game of Thrones

OK, I do have an ambiguous stance on the series, but the opening IS really well made and powerful.

Saturday Poetry Corner 7: Night

Today, some sample of Blake's poems. I chose Night from his Songs of Innocence, but those of you who haven't tried his verses, might want to read it. I know his most famous is The Tyger, that is why I wanted to avoid it.

TV Series Opening 26: The Night Of

This series tired me. It was worth it, but godsdamn tiring.

It's been a while I've done it, but on an incomprehensibly quavery Saturday like today, this might actually help. The Sun is shining, the sky is blue and yet something's not right.
Like +13C in the middle of February.

Throwback Thursday Part 45

On this day in 1873, Thomas Andrews, Jr. was born. That is why today's Throwback Thursday is to ships. And sailing. And drowning.
And Balthazar.

Saturday Poetry Corner 6: Der Handschuh

Today, Friedrich Schiller with his poem. I know, I like classic poets but I like the melody and rhythm and sometimes modern poetry lacks those. Funnily enough, both of those qualities are, more than not, found in song lyrics. 
The Glove I liked from the times of my junior school. It has that subversive kind of twist that stayed with me - I'm prone to like ie. songs with such element.
It's fluffy and light but mocks the vanity perfectly.

TV Series Opening 25: Carnivàle

This series kept me in its grip the longest.
