A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. MartinGeorge R. R. Martins A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin—dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine—has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries “Game of Thrones.”
This bundle includes the following novels:
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
Jerrys Dragon Fire Competition Figure Skating Dress (28)

There's a lot of attention and detail that goes into the descriptions of clothing, and thought I'd make a lighthearted thread about fashion.

Every awards season, comedians extraordinaire Tina Fey and Amy Poehler show us life, friendship, and red carpet goals, and every awards season I wish I could emulate some facet of their dynamic friendship.

Only time will tell whether they will hit the Oscars red carpet , but boy do I hope to see them at the biggest awards show of the season! Whenever they make an appearance at an event, whether together or apart, these two gorgeous feminists make me, and many others, admire them from afar. When they hosted the Golden Globe Awards from to , their own personal style played off one another harmoniously; when Poehler wore red, Fey wore blue, and vice versa.
Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice. It discusses the end of the world , likening the elemental force of fire with the emotion of desire , and ice with hate. It is one of Frost's best-known and most anthologized poems. In an anecdote he recounted in in a "Science and the Arts" presentation, prominent astronomer Harlow Shapley claims to have inspired "Fire and Ice". Shapley responded that either the sun will explode and incinerate the Earth, or the Earth will somehow escape this fate only to end up slowly freezing in deep space. Shapley was surprised at seeing "Fire and Ice" in print a year later, and referred to it as an example of how science can influence the creation of art, or clarify its meaning.
