Hold the Door

Oh, Game of Thrones. For a show being famous for killing off beloved characters left and right it sure upsets lots of people over and over again. I never really felt any emotional impact from any of the many deaths in the show. Spoilers ahead.

Yeah, I was mildly annoyed when Renly got killed because he would have been a good king, I do miss Robert’s fuck y’all attitude and it’s a shame someone like Myrcella isn’t around anymore but emotionally all that was fine. As long as sweet, little Tommen isn’t touched by anyone (except for Margaery of course and maybe Tormund ;p) I’ll be all right.

Last Sunday’s death wasn’t all that different to me. It was OK, it made sense and unlike most other deaths it actually served a purpose. But fuck me, the acting by the fantastic Sam Coleman still haunts me days later. That scene will be stuck with me for quite some time to come and I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling like that. What an outstanding young actor.

To make matters worse Sam just recorded a short but sweet song about the whole thing and boy, is it ever touching. Check it out below…

Oh, Britain’s got Talent… everything about that show is just so terrible. The production, the judges, the fake audience “reactions”. But sometimes the contestants aren’t. And if 14-year-old Jack manges to grow up like Ronan did he’s gonna be one hell of a pretty dancer, that’s for sure.

Marriage Equality in Northern Ireland

milkboys News & Opinions 8 Comments

“I come from a same sex family and so marriage equality is a hugely important issue to me personally.

I have felt constantly frustrated by the lack of equality in Northern Ireland, not only do I see my government telling me that my family doesn’t deserve legal recognition but I can see that the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland are in favour of marriage equality.

Our government is out of touch; those who believe that love only occurs between people the government approves of, a group who believe that not all of its people are equal is being given a bigger say than anyone else. This is unfair.

I figured my best way to try and speak up was a video. I sent a letter to my local MLA Gordon Dunne asking him to explain why he voted against the marriage equality bill in the Northern Ireland Assembly. After 4 weeks of waiting for a reply I decided to made my video explaining the letter and the situation around marriage equality in Northern Ireland.

Since I made the video and posted it I have had a hugely positive response online. It has now been over 6 weeks since I sent my letter and there has been still absolutely no response from Gordon Dunne or the DUP.”

The Sexy Virtual Reality

The porn & sex industry is always on the frontier of tech innovation and virtual reality, by many expected to be the next big thing in our lives, is no exception from this rule. Nothing drives  creativity–and sales–like sex.

The BBC recently did a documentary on the subject and no matter if you’re in a long-distance relationship or just looking for new ways to enjoy yourself alone or with others, it’s worth a look. There’s a little preview below and you can watch the whole thing here.
