Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas donate meals to the health workers of a Los Angeles Hospital

The need of the hour is to come together while staying apart. Social distancing and self-isolation are key weapons in defeating COVID-19. But it’s equally important to realize that many members of our society are at high risk. Some are fighting the illness as healthcare workers; whereas others are hit badly by the economic aspect of the shutdowns. So, unless we come forward as a community to help them provide the basic needs of food and shelter, there’s no possibility of a victory here. Our favorite quarantine couple, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and her musician husband, Joe Jonas showed a nice gesture by donating hot meals to the East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital.

Fueling the Fearless, a non-profit group, runs this campaign. They’re feeding the hospital workers at the front lines of COVID-19 while helping locally-owned restaurants to stay open and running. Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas, Joe’s manager Phil McIntyre and his wife, Shonda joined hands with the non-profit group to donate 100 hot meals for the hospital staff. Fueling the Fearless shared a few photos on Instagram on Monday to thank the two couples.

The pictures showed the staff from one of the hospitals they delivered to, plates of food, and cartons loaded for delivery. “A BIG THANK YOU to @joejonas @sophiet @philymack @shondamcintyre for donating 100 meals to East LA Doctors Hospital. This hospital is in the heart of downtown LA and serves a vastly underprivileged community with limited resources and support”; the caption read. Aliki’s Greek Taverna, an eatery in Los Angeles, perhaps prepared the meals; as the post thanked them too. “Through these types of fully paid sponsorships @alikisgreektaverna and her donors bring a moment of relief to a most grateful staff. One hot meal lets them know we are all in this together”; it said.

That’s a wonderful thing that Sophie and Joe did, and we hope it inspires others too. Another GoT star Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) recently revealed his step-father’s company is providing PPE to health workers. While we are certain that a lot of people are chipping in with their help all around the world to protect their community and health workers; and not everybody needs to get social media attention for it. But this sometimes brings in other willing people to help in their own ways.Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas donate meals to the health workers of a Los Angeles Hospital

This helpful act is another good thing in the list of activities that the couple has engaged in lately. Whether it’s the message of social distancing or telling us their quarantine routine, Sophie and Joe have been right on top of this lockdown season. We also saw their TikTok video a few days ago where they answered adorable questions about their relationship. Well, it seems like we can’t get enough of these two lovely people.

Kevin Bacon to star opposite Peter Dinklage as Villain in The Toxic Avenger

The world is slowly trying to get back on its feet after the events of the Red Wedding year 2020. Nonetheless, people losing their jobs means there is also a rise in crime rates. In times like these, we wish for a superhero to exist in real life. Peter Dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, has also appeared on various superhero movies. He will now play a superhero himself in the Toxic Avenger reboot. The Toxic Avenger has now found his arch-nemesis, in the form of actor Kevin Bacon.

While details are scant regarding Bacon’s role. If the reboot follows the original film’s plot, it could potentially be that of the city’s corrupt Mayor whose criminal activities are threatened by the Toxic Avenger’s crime-fighting escapades. The filming is set to get underway in Bulgaria later this month.

The story follows a 98-pound weakling who falls into a vat of toxic waste, mutating him into a hulking monstrosity. With his new powers, the now-Toxic Avenger (nicknamed Toxie) protects the people of his town from crime and corruption.

Kevin and Peter have both been a part of the X-Men universe, where they played villainous roles. It would be interesting to see how the former Marvel stars would fit in their new roles in the Toxic Avenger.

Dinklage will also voice-star in the upcoming animated film This Was Our Pact. Are you excited about The Toxic Avenger? Talk to us in the comments below!

Baseball team Texas Rangers celebrate HBO’s Game of Thrones

Baseball team Texas Rangers celebrate HBO’s Game of Thrones

Fantasy epic Game of Thrones has become a pop culture icon due to its massive popularity in the past decade. It is a no brainer that the hugely famed series finds its way into being mentioned on various occasions. From politics to entertainment to sports, the show has often been compared with real-life situations. On Tuesday night, the Texas Rangers celebrated HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The Game of Thrones-themed night also featured a Westeros-inspired Willie Calhoun bobblehead. However, the Rangers were heavily criticized for celebrating Game of Thrones but not Pride Month. With June being Pride Month, most Major League Baseball teams are celebrating with different versions of Pride Day. The Rangers are the only Major League Baseball team that has not had some sort of Pride Day since 2003.

When the Dallas Morning News had a story about the Rangers not celebrating with a Pride Day. The team declined to speak with the paper about their stance on such a day or their possible work with the LGBTQ community.

According to The Advocate, an LGBT magazine, the Rangers had a promotion in 2003 where it invited various LGBT groups to the game. But it wasn’t an official Pride Day promotion. The game still drew anti-gay protesters, though.

While some Game of Thrones stars have actively stated to be gender-fluid, it comes as a big surprise that Rangers would do so little in that direction. What do you think of this issue? Talk to us in the comments below!

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki compares Trump White House to ‘Game of Thrones’

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki compares Trump White House to ‘Game of Thrones’

Well, as we all know already, American politics is no stranger to being the butt of jokes, and the only other place with politics that are as messed up, is Westeros. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when analogies are often made between the two. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday suggested that there were more leaks under former President Trump than there are now. It was due to infighting among administration officials during the previous four years, comparing it to Game of Thrones.

There’s not a lot of ‘Game of Thrones’ drama here, which feels like it may be a bit of … a shift from the last four years,” Psaki said when asked about the lack of leaks to the media at a conference hosted by the Financial Times.

Psaki said many White House staffers have a long history of working with Biden, and that’s created a different kind of atmosphere in the West Wing. “The culture of this White House is very much a put your head down. Get to work, do your thing, be a part of the team,” she said.

He actually enjoys that back and forth and takes questions, I think. More than almost most presidents in modern history. In terms of the frequency of how often he takes questions from reporters,” she said, noting that Biden answered questions shouted by reporters at least 77 times in his first 100 days in office, according to a presidential historian.

“I think this has been a little bungled out there, [me] walking out the door on day 365,” Psaki concluded. “I have flexibility and can stay longer and likely will stay longer.”
