Winter is Here: The Best and Worst Tracks of Game of Thrones Season 4

We’ve all been ready since the finale last year, but the time has finally come to immerse ourselves in Westeros once more. We’ve been reading the books, consulting psychics, rewatching seasons 1-4 on repeat, and most importantly, listening to the tracks from last season. It was good, it was bad, it was ugly. **No spoilers for anything going forward, but I can’t guarantee your sanity if you haven’t seen season 4 yet** Read More Winter is Here: The Best and Worst Tracks of Game of Thrones Season 4

Recipe Roundup: Thinking Pink

This Roundup is late for a very important date. If this Roundup had been late for its period, it wouldn’t be looking for two blue lines. Oh no. This Roundup would be seeing its midwife for a dating scan. Persephoneers, this Roundup can barely bring itself to admit that it is late for a very important date. Deep breaths. It’s okay.

Weekly Anime Review

The spring season has started. I’ve got no shows continuing from the Winter season, but there are quite a few shows worth looking at. I’m of course watching the second season of shows I’ve watched previously, like Fate/Stay Night. There is also an OVA-turned-TV show of Ghost in the Shell that I would watch even if it was awful. The rest are new series that seemed interesting; Kekkai Sensen because of the weird setting, Owari no Seraph because the animation looked good in the previews and because I like “historical” anime, usually.
