While the rest of the world was fixed on the premiere of Mad Men last night and whistling “Zou Bisou Bisou” this morning, I find myself more excited for the return of Game of Thrones on HBO. So much so, that I figured there would be no better time to post on a few of the characters. Let’s begin with the HBIC of the North, Lady Stark. As we left season 1, she was a recent widow of Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell. After making war upon the Lannisters for their attempt on her son’s life, she now stirs with even more anger. A confrontation is most certainly at hand, but Lady Stark has a valuable bargaining chip against the Lannisters, their most prized son, Jaime. War looms in the Seven Kingdoms and Lady Stark will no doubt play an important and badass role.
What do you get the man that has everything? A wife, and after that, another! It’s everybody’s favorite royal heretic, King Henry VIII! You may remember him from such classes as World History I and AP European history. King Henry was most famous for his failed marriages, first to the Catholic Catherine of Aragon, then to Anne Boleyn, then to Jane Seymour, then to Anne of Cleves, then Catherine Howard and finally to Catherine Parr. Oh what craziness. You might ask, how could one have all of these different wives? Death helped a little bit, but Henry also famously broke from the Vatican and became head of the church. Basically, he could do whatever he wanted. Steez.

So what happens to the kid who spends his dreams where the wild things are? He grows up to wear Junya Watanabe, duh. We all know the book and some of us enjoyed the movie, although, I don’t count myself one of those that enjoyed the film. After being punished for running around the house in his wolf costume, he imagines a world entirely separate from his bedroom and comes across the wild things. The wild things crown him the king after he stares them down and they dance all night long (all night lonngggg, all niggghtt). Soon though, Max misses his home and is back in his room. You know any kid that can pull off a wolf costume and be crowned king of the wild things would have some sick style and would wear his favorite jeans and sneakers over and over. Right brain for the win.

Fair credit: This post was Kristina's idea. We went to college together, she writes for Gawker and if you think I'm snarky…you should meet her and her friends. SNARKTRONS.
