"This groug is for the girls out there who would rather see the guys go ask her dad for permission to go on a date before saying anything to the girl herself. Being a firl my self, I would only go an a date where the guy had the full permission of my dad. I would want there to be a respect for my father, not just the guy asking me and then has to go ask my parents to see if that is alright. Dating or courting is a big thing that to be taking lighty. I kind of like the concept of a anranged marriage, the guy goes to the dad and makes all the plans you the girl follows the wise wisdom of her father. I am not saying that girls should just do what ever their parents say no matter what, no questions asked, just that we should trust the wisdom of our fathers. they do have our best interests at heart. I am praying that God is already preparing a guy out there like this just for me."
The mission statement of a facebook group consisting of three lonely girls. I don’t remember how I got there, I just know I never want to go back.
HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo says the dailies for highly anticipated fantasy series “Game of Thrones” look “fantastic” and the project looks very strong for a series pickup.
"Everything looks fantastic," said Lombardo, who’s become a fan of the George R.R. Martin books upon which the project is based. "The director got great performances. Unlike a lot of projects like this, everything was shot on location. It has such a rich texture that it looks more expensive than it actually was."
The network spent $5 million-$10 million on the pilot to bring castle Winterfell to life. Lombardo says executives are “sitting on pins and needles” waiting for a rough cut in two weeks.
"The fantasy is so incidental, it has a very adult tone," Lombardo said. "You forget it’s fantasy while you’re watching it, and that’s what I love about it."
The pilot will employ some CGI, for backgrounds, the story’s “direwolves” (a mixture of real animals and CGI) and dragon eggs.
Also, like in the books, each family in the story will have its own color pallet for clothing and armor.
If all goes well, Lombardo said, “Game of Thrones” will be on HBO in spring 2011 — “March or April.”
"I would be surprised if it doesn’t [get greenlit]," Lombardo said. "It has everything going for it."
Winter Is Coming: So excited right now! The head of programming at HBO is a fan of the books! Sounds like we are this close to a series pick up. Don’t know when it will be forthcoming, but it seems like just a formality at this point. I mean, they are already talking premiere dates!
