Options August 30, 2017: Learning Andy About Game of Thrones

Andy has never seen Game of Thrones, and is exploring the idea of "hopping into it", asking Ken and the callers to help him get caught up on the storyline thus far. Ken is already a huge fan - he became addicted because the rest of his family was into it and he had little choice but to tune in.

To start, Andy is introduced to the concepts of Jon Snow and Westeros, as well as the usage of dragons, zombies, and incest. The callers delve deeper into the show with information on Beric Dondarrion, wild walkers, Varys, Arya, and much much more. Most callers confess their love for the show, but throughout it all, Andy remains skeptical and underwhelmed. It is however revealed that Andy and George R.R. Martin have one thing in common - they both use Wordstar for word processing, which apparently must be loaded from a DOS command line.

Earlier in the show, Andy discusses his daughters bat mitzvah, specifically the band he hired (My Brother's Penis), and his son's idea to design a quiz show to determine Ken's seating placement at the event. Also, Andy expresses concern for the situation Houston (which he heard about from Beth), and he crafts a plan to fill the city with tampons donated by callers. They estimate billions of tampons are needed.

One of the writers is Dave Hill - but not Dave Hill if you know who I mean.
Avatar 6:31pm dale:

andy - just like monopoly has multiple versions you could market 'who tooted - the game of thrones edition'
  6:31pm Torbjørn:

Maybe Andy might find it more relatable if he knew it was from from Bayonne, NJ. Something about the Dothraki sea being a metaphor for the swamps of New Jersey. Failing government and cruel rulers being a comment Chris Christie and his predecessors. It seems quite local if you look at it in a certain way.
  6:31pm herb.nyc:

Jerk me says the Harvey funnies earlier were, well, not. And I'm not a Game of T fan so I'm spacing out. Plz, let andy's 2 young kids call. They make me smile.
Avatar 6:32pm Stephen Radford (Manchester):

I have never seen Games of the Thrones.
Avatar 6:34pm BnowB:

We have 1 rule?
Avatar 6:35pm Stephen Radford (Manchester):

Wear comfortable shoes - not a rule, but generally good advice.
  6:35pm zopa:

i hope everyone dies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm ultradamno:

It occurs to me that comparing The Night King to my parents doesn't really make him seem less evil.
Avatar 6:35pm BnowB:

I really think I watched it with hope. I tried so hard to find it "awesome"... it is a lot of random fantasy... there are almost no redeeming characters. The kid assassin was until she started to kill people.
Avatar 6:35pm Stephen Radford (Manchester):

Will this be like ER and just go on forever?
Avatar 6:37pm BnowB:

I will say in the "gay bear world" its is a PHENOM!
I don't know a gay bear friend who doesn't LOVE!!! IT!!

word star for life en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 7:03pm Jeff:

WordStar was the program of choice for conservative intellectual William F. Buckley, Jr.,[28] who used the software to write many works, including his last book. This was noted by his son, Christopher Buckley, who wrote of the almost comical loyalty and affection his father had shown for WordStar, which he had installed into every new computer he purchased despite the technical difficulty of such an endeavor as the program became increasingly outdated and incompatible with newer computers. He said of WordStar, "I'm told there are better programs, but I'm also told there are better alphabets."[28]

Ralph Ellison also used WordStar.[29]

Canadian science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer continues to use a customized version of WordStar for DOS to write his novels,[30] as does George R. R. Martin.[31]

Andy Breckman, the creator of Monk, is a devout WordStar user[32].

Vampire fiction writer Anne Rice was another faithful user of WordStar who struggled to have it installed on newer computers until it could no longer reasonably be done. She then grudgingly transitioned to Microsoft Word, whose design she felt was comparatively unintuitive and illogical: "MS Word was a nightmare by comparison, made perhaps for students and men who liked to 'play' with a mouse. Learning it was like learning something thrown together by maniacs."[33]

en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 7:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

WordStar could be annoying but yeah way way better than dealing with Word. There is something to be said for sticking with tools that work and that you're fluent with. People didn't upgrade their typewriters every two years but that's what the software industry would have you do.
