Weekly World Music: “Gendjer2” by Fillistine and Nova Ruth. Today’s selection is a bit of a two-for-one deal, as Filistine is from Spain, and Nova (and the song) is from Indonesia. Despite being a simple song about gathering food (Gendjer is a water plant that was eaten by the very poor) it became associated with the country’s communist party in the 60’s, and was then banned for years by the Suharto-era government. 

Gendjer-gendjer are scattered in the field

A woman harvesting them

She has a basket full and then going home

At dawn, the gendjers are taken to the market

Neatly tied in a bunch and then were offered

Mother Jebeng buys plenty

Now the gendjer is ready to be cooked

As I’ve been watching people saying they’re done with GOT after this latest episode, it’s dawned on me that I’m actually pleased to hear people saying they dislike the only tv adaption of my favorite book series despite a. it being my favorite book series b. it being a series I’m constantly trying to get people into and c. said adaption being the only reason there is any merchandise or awareness of this series whatsoever. Thanks HBO.

baratheon - I feel like David and Dan were those fanboys who skipped over Davos' chapters because they were "boring" and based their characterization of Stannis off of his TV tropes page.

People have been posting some really nice The Princess and the Queen graphics, and I’m enjoying it, but also I want to go cry in a corner every time I see one. Still not over that story.
