Thinking about ‘Game of Thrones,’ breast milk lollipops and more

    • Game over

      Last week’s Game of Thrones offered one of the most nauseating twists in the history of television. I’d read the books beforehand, and I still needed to cuddle a puppy afterwards. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • No boys allowed

      So a biopic on an icon from an Oscar-winning director with two bona fide stars can’t get a theatrical release and settles for record-breaking ratings on HBO. Meanwhile, a three-hour French lesbian romance wins the top prize at Cannes; betcha it gets released. —Brock Radke, web & food editor

    • Party foul

      In Portland this weekend, I noticed Vegas-level densities of sleeve tattoos, strip clubs and great bourbon drinks. Not cool. Because Portland also has trees. At least let us have the corner on strippers. —Erin Ryan, staff writer

    • Candy cringe

      Lollyphile specializes in lollipops of unusual flavors, like bourbon and sriracha, but their newest pop might be the strangest flavor yet: breast milk. Seriously. —Sarah Feldberg, editor

    • Siren song

      I have caught almost every episode of The Voice this season—and I can’t stand performance reality shows. How’d it happen? Two words: Michelle Chamuel. I’d buy that chick’s concert ticket tomorrow. —Mark Adams, associate web editor
