You Know Nothing Unless You Take This Awesome Game Of Thrones Class!

Filed under: BookzSchoolGame Of ThronesGIFs

game of thrones course university of virginia

If only this class were available to the Jon Snow, then Ygritte wouldn't rub his cluelessness in his face so much! HA!

But then, maybe the show wouldn't have earned as many Emmy nods as it did!

So now, not only can you watch Game of Thrones on HBO, but now you can actually STUDY it thanks to the class being offered at the University of Virginia!

(Looks like someone's taking advice from the professor who created the Miley Cyrus sociology course!)

But, wait, GoT is based on a book series, what's the big deal that there's a college course on it?

Well, Lisa Woolfork, the professor of the summer class at UVA, explains that it's much MORE than just a silly old English class.

In fact, she's teaching the books along with the HBO episodes and proving that the series doesn't "ruin" the books, but they enhance the reading experience!

She said:

'One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful, and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis'

It’s so literary – how in-depth it is, how robust it is, how much there is to discuss about it. But we’re also very concerned about the pop culture aspects, how we as viewers receive Game of Thrones. I think it’s important to apply the same principles we do with literature to television and film…'

WHOA! How exciting does THAT sound!

We wonder what the next pop culture-induced college class will be?

The Avengers differences in comic books and movies? Taylor Swift's influence on the music industry?

So many options!

It’s not easy getting good advice, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.

But for substitute teacher Cassandre Fiering, asking her 4th grade class about her boyfriends proved to be a bit of a bad idea!

It actually cost her her job!

The 45-year old educator and part-time actress was teaching at P.S. 189 in the Bronx when she asked students to decide between the two men she was dating! Investigators say she even acted out scenarios she’s had with her suitors and then had the kids determine which man would make for a better mate!

Oh boy…

Joaquin Phoenix Kicks So Hard In Karate That He's Lost All Of His Shoes

Filed under: Joaquin PhoenixFitnessHealth

joaquin phoenix karate class barefoot

Joaquin Phoenix is taking karate, just so you know.

Now that we've cleared that up a bit, we also want you to know that he was spotted leaving his karate class in Beverly Hills — barefoot!

This wouldn't be a big deal, because karate is done barefoot a lot while in training, except he left the dojo to grab some cash from the ATM and STILL didn't put shoes on!

What about glass? The dirt?

He's either super tough or absolutely mental!

After dating a computer for a while, we suppose you're immune to lots of kinds of pain!

LOLz!

Hmmm — we wonder if we'll be seeing Shia running around without shoes next!
