A fascinating article asserting women are often attracted to less physically attractive writers due to what they call a "primal literary crush." Do you agree with them? IMO, women can be strongly attracted to the most sensual organ - the brain. Wouldn't that explain why female beauties find themselves sexually attracted to an otherwise unattractive male, whose intelligence cancels out any consideration of his visual appearance? Begs this question as well - what's the effect when a male is both physically and mentally alluring? hahaha You are looking at one of the results. Sane women stumble around mumbling "I don't know what's happened to me...need to start a blog, like a fangurl, when I've ignored all males other than my significant other for over a decade." :) Interesting read...

Next two are first the article where a NYTimes reporter stated Martin writes for boy - then second which is one woman's defense of our interest in The Hobbit.http://tv.nytimes.com/2011/04/15/arts/television/game-of-thrones-begins-sunday-on-hbo-review.html

Detective Musa found this video - it's the Hubbards, casting directors for THE HOBBIT, explaining the process during what sounds like an interview in Spain..
Sir Guy: "Ooops..forgot I'd rather build a home than burn one...she'll make certain I pay bigtime for this one.."
Very interesting read about directors cuts. It includes comments on LOTR: Return of The King (4hrs long..Yikes!)
Although, four hours of Thorin would seem too brief for us:)
That clueless liberal rag The New York Times (unbiased journalism..HA!...they don't know the meaning of those words) has in the past 48hrs proven how wrongheaded they are - not only politically - also in their literary pages where they assume they know the reading preferences of women.Yesterday an article published in that newspaper stated that women do not care for The Hobbit. Today they compound their ignorance by stating GRR Martin writes for boys. Martin responded to their remark on his journal page by asking why, if the Times conclusion is correct, are there so many readers with breasts in the waiting lines at book signings for his bestsellers:) teehee....go get 'em George!
Great fun, respectfully done with amazing lookalikes:

I've never seen the following photo of RA prior to today. It's one of many at an RA Russian fans website. Can anyone identify the woman with him. Is she one of the organizers of the event? It's identified as the 2005 Children in Need Celebrity Dinner.
One of The Song of Ice and Fire - Game of Thrones websites today has the opening lyrics from a broadway show as their theme for this weekend..."the sun will come up tomorrow." First episode of HBO's new series starts Sunday evening starring Sean Bean as Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell...
