So the better half and I have just finished up Season 1 of Game of Thrones and we’re excited about watching Game of Thrones Season Two. With that said the Game of Thrones Season 2 has aired but for us non-HBO subscribers the release date for the second season is 19 February 2013. So this started me down the deal hunt for Game of Thrones Season Two on Blu-ray. The nice part of picking up a Blu-ray copy of Game of Thrones Season 2 is that it comes with a DVD copy and Digital version (like iTunes or VUDU). Retail price is usually $49.99 but like last year I found that it was possible to obtain Game of Thrones Season One for $34.99. So with that metric I’ve gone on the hunt for Season 2 at the same great price. Besides this is the easiest way to get all the a game of thrones episodes! With that the best price on Game of Thrones Season Two I’ve found are the following:
Amazon - Preorder for $30!!
Best Buy - Preorder for $34.99.
Walmart - Preorder in Store for $34.99. (See Images Below; you’ll find this advertised in Walmart’s local ad on their main site.)
iTunes - Preorder for $38.99.
This should cover all the ways to watch Game of Thrones, Season 2 that you can think of! Enjoy!

I’ve watched this film. You can get it on Amazon, Hulu and probably Netflix as well but I happened across this preview for the actual theatrical preview, and it reminded me when I watched it a couple of years ago.
This film is about what should be done to make a dramatic change in the direction the planet is currently headed regarding its sustainability of human life. What is possible versus the extremely slow changes we are making with renewable energy and the elimination of fossil fuel use (vice our Nation simply getting off foreign oil). One must also understand that it is acceptable to have used oil as we have. The economics of our history, culture, and society make that acceptable. But I feel and believe that we’ve reached a point in which we should focus true and wholehearted effort to shift away from its use as soon as practicable.
Some would say that we could have solved this problem in the 1970s when the oil embargo and fuel prices rose to unprecedented levels. While I don’t necessarily believe we could have solved this completely (mostly due to technology restrictions) I believe we could have invested better and placed ourselves in a preferable position than where we remain to date.
So rather than being in a position to have plenty of funding to invest in much of the endeavors that will inevitably be put forth in this film we have sent an extraordinary amount of our American dollar to another part of the globe in order to put limited funding into mass transit, allow our roads and bridges decay to collapse, and do significant damage to our air, water and land quality. At this point we have reached the deficit level where even programs, such as mass transit are facing significant funding challenges in areas like Pittsburgh. This hampers wise transportation options but also severely affects the lower parts of the income spectrum.
While I have enjoyed the academic year in Pittsburgh the city faces strategic environmental challenges compounded by the economic issues of a city still very much recovering from the fall of its steel industry several decades ago. Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) faces a city “Grand Challenge” in their water and sewer networks that must be improved to meed Federal minimum requirements.
Have you made it a habit to look at the environmental conditions where you are living? How do you integrate sustainability into your life?
