I’ll start off with the disclaimer that I have never actually seen an episode Girls. Currently, it is in the long list of shows I will one day get to.
However the show, and Lena Dunham in particular, seems to constantly come up in discussion of feminism and representation of women so perhaps I’ll get around to watching it sooner.
Recently there was some controversy over the question that The Wrap reporter Tim Molloy asked during the Television Critics Association winter press tour for the show.
The conversation being discussed goes as follows:
Molloy: “I don’t get the purpose of all of the nudity on the show, by you particularly, and I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you go, ‘Nobody complains about the nudity on Game of Thrones,’ but I get why they are doing it. They are doing it to be salacious and, you know…

Some of you may have noticed that I am a huge geek and very proud of it. I have been playing video games since I my years were in single digits and they have helped enrich my imagination no end. Seeing how games have gotten so much more goal and reward orientated has helped me see how these relaxing pasttimes can now help us develop as people even more as well as being telling commentaries on real life.
My favourite game of all time is without a doubt, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this game you play a self-designed character know as the Dragonborn who has the power to kill dragon’s as well as absorb their souls with the benefit of learning ancient magic in tongue of dragons and project this power via their shout or Thu’um.
The Thu’um or shout of the Dragon-born is perhaps the…

Are you guys excited for Super Bowl Sunday?
I am!! I love watching football, especially college, but the Super Bowl is on a whole other level. There’s no other sporting event quite like it. Okay, the Olympics are something else, but do we treat any other sporting event like a holiday?
This year, it’s a matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
Earlier in the season, I wanted (or may have predicted) the Seahawks and Broncos for the Super Bowl. Only because they’re the top teams in the NFL, it’d be a great matchup between quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning, the teams are considerably closer to the West Coast (I’m an Oregonian), and because my roommate is a Broncos fan, while I rooted for the Seahawks.

The New York Post put together a pretty interesting list of facts about Super Bowl 48. Here are some highlights:
1. No member of the Seahawks has ever appeared in the Super Bowl. This is the first time since the 1990 Buffalo Bills that a team had no prior experience. The Bills lost the Super Bowl that year and they also lost the year after, the year after that, and then the year after that.
2. Peyton Manning is the only player on either team to win a Super Bowl ring. Only three others have even appeared in the Big Game: Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker (2008, 2012), tight end Jacob Tamme (2010) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (2009).
3. Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno’s first name is a combination of his father’s nickname, “Knowledge,” and his mother’s name, “Varashon.”
4. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is a diehard fan of The…
