This movie—the 1973 Norman Jewison-directed cinematization of Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice’s rock opera based on the last days of Jesus Christ—was our favorite, and remains so to this day, in spite of the fact that the same people are now, respectively, a post-Catholic, an agnostic, and an atheist who believes in astrology and ghosts. While it’s still nice to mark the passing of another year with a Good Friday viewing, the movie’s true power has little to do with Jesus or the Christian holidays and everything to do with the transcendent possibilities of film, music, and badass postmodern costuming.
Have you ever wondered where all the food comes from in George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series? We did, so we asked around to find out who provides for all the feasts of fantasy.
Look, @jaybushman. It’s the Modern Farmer article that will finally get you to start reading Modern Farmer.
Elio Garcia, webmaster for westeros.org, a comprehensive Game of Thrones fan site, explained to Modern Farmer that the fictitious continent has three major agricultural regions that provide food for the many urban centers that dot the landscape. (Sadly, Martin himself refused comment through his publicist, who said he was busy writing.)
