HOTH WEEK: Day 1 of 4

Posted 1 day ago
So the question is not, exactly, “Why change the books?” Because the answer is clear: Many, many details must be changed, just to make the transition from book series to televised series work. The question is, instead: “Why change this?” Why make a scene from the book that depicts consensual sex into one in the show that depicts rape?

Rape of Thrones · For Our Consideration · The A.V. Club

Thank god for the A.V. Club, the only media outlet that has outright called bullshit on this so far.

And another really important quote:

Rape is a tricky thing to use as character development, for either the victim or the rapist; doing it twice raises a lot of red flags. It assumes that rape between characters doesn’t fundamentally change the rest of their story—and it assumes that the difference between consent and rape is, to use the parlance, a “blurred line.”

(via mythandrists)

As someone who has never read the books but absolutely loves the show, this article rips me in two—I had no idea those scenes were depicted WAY differently in the books. It’s sad, then, that a show this influential and this popular would go the route of changing scenes that had huge potential of promoting (I’d like to say glorifying but forget it now) consensual sex for shock value. Although I know that it’s “just TV,” shows like GoT have a huge influence on its viewers and society. If they could have done those scenes like they were in the books, then maybe my friends would have commented on how good of a scene that was instead of just brushing by the issue by saying “that was intense” and moving on. The worst result from this is desensitizing. I’ve realized first hand how I’ve been desensitized by TV and it’s actually pretty terrifying. I know, somewhere online, there’s a response by the head writers/director about the scene but this article probably sums up what they’ll say. In reality though it was ALL FOR THE RATINGS. BECAUSE HBO “GOES THERE.” AND ITS HISTORICALLY ACCURATE RIGHT, SO LET’S DO IT.

I’ll tell you whut 

I will definitely NOT miss the loud awful electronic music that reverberates throughout the neighborhood once I move out of the student area. 

I don’t want to live near college campuses ever again ugh

If you’re not by the loud obnoxious student area you’re just by the train, but tbh that is a pretty comforting sound

sadly I am by both of those things

the trains reminds me that the world still exists

the college parties remind me that college is awful 

"that the world STILL EXISTS"

Last year we sorted through hours of video footage and photographs from when we first recorded and released our debut album, I Am The Movie. We realized we had such great footage from those days that we thought it would be cool to put together a documentary inspired stylistically by…
