When it comes to tragic events like the August 2014 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Missouri, we have to be critical of not just what the media is reporting but also of how they’re framing the story. I wouldn’t usually rely on a celebrity to explain this type of thing, but Jesse Williams (of “Grey’s Anatomy”) totally gets it and makes some excellent comments.
Lifehack: if you go into the theaters with the mindset that books and movies are different forms of entertainment you’ll be a lot happier in life
whenever i see a dark shadowy cloaked figure in a video game trailer i get down on my knees and pray real quick 2 jesus that they’re gonna turn around and it’s gonna be woman
HBO: In a previous episode, Oberyn is writing a poem for his daughter. Have you thought through his life in Dorne?
Pedro Pascal: I see him as an extremely contemporary, progressive and loving father. I think it’s so suitable that he had nothing but daughters to raise. He doesn’t shape ideas based on old conventions so his daughters are not limited by backwards, medieval morality.
HBO: He’s very emotionally intelligent.
Pedro Pascal: I think there’s a depth in the way that Oberyn perceives the world and the way he lives in it. I think there’s a lot of woman inside of Oberyn, which attributes to his strength.
HBO: Can you explain what you mean by “a lot of woman”?
Pedro Pascal: Perceptiveness. Intelligence. In the world of ‘Game of Thrones,’ which can harshly reflect some of the darker elements of our reality, I would argue that women are often forced to be smarter and more in touch with themselves because their circumstances are so ruled by men. Women’s survival skills kick in a bit earlier.
HBO: Would you say that Oberyn is a feminist?
Pedro Pascal: Absolutely. Without choosing to be. It’s just intrinsic and logical to him. Ellaria Sand is the love of his life because she is his equal, if not his superior, in certain ways. That’s part of what makes him such a fierce man because he knows who to take his lead from.
HBO: How do you hope that fans remember Oberyn?
Pedro Pascal: As a lover and a fighter. As a fun character who ushered in something new to King’s Landing and stirred some sh*t up: Big in, big out.
HBO: Fans are bound to be brokenhearted.
Pedro Pascal: As am I. As I have been all along.
Being internet smart is like the 21st century version of being street smart.
Okay Dad, these are the websites you use to watch your show.
Sockshare, Putlocker, gorillavid, nosvideo and novamov are your friends, stick to them and you know you’re okay.
DO NOT click on anything that wants you to download updates or DivX.
DO NOT click on adverts on the side.
And be very cautious of fake play buttons.
You are ready. Go forth and watch Dexter.
