OK, Game of Thrones is over, on to the next big, bloody epic with too many characters, convoluted storylines and a controversial finish: the 2020 election.
If you like gigantic portraits of old white guys and no one else, plan a visit to your nearest federal courthouse! #traveltips
ARYA STARK: I’ll just walk the Earth. VINCENT VEGA: What'cha mean walk the earth? ARYA STARK: You know, walk the earth, meet people... get into adventures. Like Kane in "Kung Fu." VINCENT VEGA: So you decided to be a bum? #gameofthrones
Bob Woodward's next book is about how the new ruler of Westeros just holes up in his room watching Raven TV all morning, sends out dozens of weird, misspelled scrolls in response, and becomes increasingly erratic as members of his council are forced to resign one by one.
Bran is like, “This is why you don’t ever listen to the early candidate polling.” #gameofthrones

My #GameofThrones story is that I have to report for federal jury duty an hour away at 7:45 am tomorrow morning. #ValarDohaeris
Moving apps around on an iOS screen still feels like washing a litter of small, jittery dogs that are all trying to jump out of the tub at the same time.

Streaming TV be gettin' complicated. Here's a piece I wrote for the @statesman about the changing options of paying for programming: twitter.com/512tech/status…
I know it was a long wait, but I was still not prepared for "Fleabag" S2 E1.
I'm moderating a panel on AI called "What's the Worst That Could Happen?" at Outlier Podcast Festival! Tomorrow, 11:05 a.m. at @galvanize Austin, bit.ly/2WQ5dg6 Panelists: Sara Hall, @AmberJGunst and @Docuguy.

On @TexasStandard today: searching for specific streaming movies/TV doesn't have to be a stupid, ridiculous, thumb-exhausting, choices-you-made-in-life questioning struggle. bit.ly/2WLUHqh
I was trying to figure out which cereal to eat this morning and Alyssa Milano popped out of my pantry to weigh in on the issue.
I'll be on @TexasStandard in a little while talking about the challenge of searching for stuff to watch across so many streaming TV platforms. TV programming: guides: assemble! https://t.co/Tw9rKc3qvm

Alabama just got everyone to stop shitting on "Game of Thrones" for a few hours.
For ⁦@BookPlusFilm, I wrote about how ⁦@netflix's⁩ "I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson" works by NOT reinventing the sketch-comedy wheel. bookandfilmglobe.com/television/tv-…

Get ready for some Rob Lowe sightings, Austin. twitter.com/primetimercom/…
Disappointed to discover that "Sex Strike" is not a new Netflix series about a diverse squad of naked intimacy-coaching commandos. They carry dildos, not guns.
For @primetimercom, I made a list of all the terrible things Selina Meyer did this campaign season leading to the @VeepHBO series finale on Sunday. #veep primetimer.com/features/veep-… https://t.co/2sqwJMVEtC

My brother @Pabably told me I can't watch "Glass" (Blu-ray borrowed from the library!) until I've seen "Split," and now I have TWO M. Night Shyamalan movies to watch and I have never been more furious.
"Do they explain what happened w/ red skull and how he ended up on Vermouth or whatever the fuck it’s called?" -- me asking @Pabably the hard #MCU questions
I went back and watched "The Incredible Hulk" movie out of curiosity and it has not aged well, primarily because it is bad. #mcu

Know any families in Austin weighing their streaming TV options over the rest of the year? Would love to talk to one of them for a story. (And yes I know we're ALL weighing this.)
My tax returns from 1985-1994 reveal heavy financial losses tied to U2 posters and Arby's Triple Melts.
The most forward-looking feature of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove” is that “Tonight” can be any night, not just the night you’re hearing it. But it COULD be tonight. It works for pretty much any date on which you care to slice it right. bit.ly/2vLL7ri
For @austin360 and the @statesman I wrote about @tiktok_us and the challenge of deciding when to allow your kids to use social networks. My younger daughter and I have been experimenting with a solution; here’s a column about that process: austin360.com/entertainmentl…

As a card-carrying, bad joke-making, yelling-to-knock-off-that-racket-in-the-next-room Dad, I was able to write my parenting-based theory on what happens in #MisterMiracle, one of the best comics series of the last year for the Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog, @BNSciFi twitter.com/BNSciFi/status…

I bought Easter candy at CVS but when they rang it up there was no discount. I bought it anyway out of embarrassment, NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO SELL EASTER CANDY AT FULL PRICE AFTER EASTER! Thank you for coming to my TED talk, wait this isn't TED, UNHAND ME, BUNNY ASSASSINS, NOOOO!
I will take my pretend candy and health and beauty needs elsewhere in a show of solidarity Who's sorry now, CVS? Who's sorry now?
