Can you cover some of the Naka / Aronian games from the tournament in St Louis now that the WC is over?  The first two games were both decisive, and I'm kinda sad that they were overshadowed by the World Championship.

Tata Steel is starting soon ....... Naka has my support as always, but I'll definitely catch the Caruana matches as well:

Finally cleared 300 lbs on the bench.  Only took about ~5 years.

I'm working on clearing 500 lbs on deadlift.  That might take a few more months though at this rate.

I loved the game of thrones books, but I just can't get into the T.V. series.....

So much of what made the books great was the character development and the internal thoughts and struggles that they went through.  None of this came through in the T.V. series.  Maybe it's too hard to convey what a character is thinking, so they just gave up on it.  


In the books I found myself very attached to some of the characters (and hating some of the others), but when watching the T.V. series I just don't care who lives or dies.
