Need to fill your for gore and death?  Love Game of Thrones?  Then this video is for you!  These two videos compile all the deaths from the first season of Game of the Thrones.  It gets pretty brutal and shows with high body counts are slightly disturbing, especially because it seems that it can be directly proportional to how popular the show is….What does that say about society?  What does it say about society that these videos have 200 thousands hits combined with an overall positive liking bar…

If that’s distrubing think about a video that compiles all the nudity of Game of Throne and see how many hits it gets…Well I’m actually probably sure that it already exists and it probably has more hits than this site has in total…[which is as of recently a wee bit short of 100,000].

This is a cool compilation of pictures.  Dorkly created a neat gallery where they took famous video game families/clans and made them into Game of Thrones families with accompanying icons and words.  They’re based on neat trivia and if you have the skill/knowledge of video game universes to ‘get’ them all, then you should give yourself a good pat on the back.  I only put the ones I know below, so check out the rest of them over at Dorkly, tell me where the other ones come from!

More than once [like a bajillion times], I’ve been caught in a web of videos that all include cats doing silly things.  Here we have a cat doing both a silly and awesome thing.  A user essentially made a cat’s singular meow to the tune of HBO’s Game of Thrones opening theme.  How is this even possible?  How does one conceive this idea and proceed to get millions upon millions of views.

And of course, there’s also a dog doing the same damn thing, which I included below.  This is why the internet was invented.

There’s a lot of sex and nudity in A Song of Ice and Fire.  And that trend followed and might have even been augmented in the HBO adaptation,  Game of Thrones.  All the nudity certainly gathered attention and when  George R.R. Martin, author and executive producer of the books and television show respectively was approached about it, he had a rather cool way of replying to it.

I can describe an axe entering a human skull in great explicit detail and no one will blink twice at it. I provide a similar description, just as detailed, of a penis entering a vagina, and I get letters about it and people swearing off. To my mind this is kind of frustrating, it’s madness. Ultimately, in the history of [the] world, penises entering vaginas have given a lot of people a lot of pleasure. Axes entering skulls, well, not so much.

George R.R. Justified Sex in Media…in a Smart Way

This lovely images portrays to heavyweights in the fantasy fiction genre and their stances on ‘killing off characters’.  In one corner we have J.K. Rowling who’s most famous for the Harry Potter series.  And in the other corner is George R.R. Martin, writer of the Song of Ice and Fire series.  For those who are familiar with both, you don’t really need me to understand the very hilarious joke here.

But to the interested, but uneducated in book culture.  J.K. Rowling is referencing her quote regarding how difficult it is to kill of some ‘major’ characters in her book series like, SPOILERS —————Snape, Sirius, etc. ————————END SPOILERS.  Then we have George R.R. Martin who gives a mocking look because the man LOVES killing off major [see how I don’t use quotes there] characters.

For the curious, I’m having trouble finishing Feast for Crows, I’m currently starting the Soiled Knight’s story arc which is about a third or more in.  It’s moving awfully slow compared to the very hectic and awesome Sword of Storms.  Does it get better?  I’m hoping so…
