The trio, George R.R. Martin, Lena Heady, and Michelle Fairley recently sat down at the Sydney Opera House for a 90 minute roundtable discussion of Game of Thrones. This one is worth setting aside the time of your busy day. (more…)
Telltale Games has been on a roll as of late, with their award winning game series, The Walking Dead, and the recently released first episode of The Wolf Among Us, based on the comic series Fables. According to IGN and their sources, though, Telltale is already working on their next title, and rumor has it that it’s the Game of Thrones series. (more…)
When a creative property is ultra-popular – particularly “cult” properties – there is always the risk that someone, somewhere will attempt to keep it going in an effort to make more cash money. Sometimes there are more altruistic purposes, such as continuing a story or fleshing out a world so that fans have more to experience. Hell, there are billions of fan-fics all over the Internetz that attest to the fact that people won’t let Harry Potter die. But one author has stepped forward to openly say that he wants his legacy to end with his death – George R.R. Martin. (more…)
Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. Now on with the dump!

HBO has been an exclusive, subscriber only channel since its inception. It’s cable plus, cable supreme, a channel so elite you need dozens of crap channels just to access it. And that’s worked out swell for HBO and cable companies–that is, until internet piracy became the way of the world. (more…)
I don’t watch Dancing With The Stars often (Okay, that’s a lie. Wife forces me to watch every week), but when I do, it’s because of moments like this. Dancers Corbin Bleu (of High School Musical fame) and Karina Smirnoff dressed as Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen and performed the Viennese Waltz to the Game of Thrones theme song. It had the all the blood and fire you thought it would… none whatsoever. Okay, there was maybe a little fire; literal flames on set and some hotness on the dance floor. Oi! I may have to turn in my nerd card for having admitted that. (more…)
Tired of waiting for Game Of Thrones to return? Low on your fart joke/jazz hands quota for the week? Well then book of the rest of the day because we’ve got exactly what you need. Bad Lip Reading has taken footage from the midget-dragon-incest laced HBO fantasy drama about midgets and dragons and incest, given it their lipdub treatment to create the Meatballs-esque wacky hijinks comedy we never knew we wanted. Called Medieval Land Fun-Time World, it features Eddie Stark as a theme park manager that has a week to get the park in order before opening and of course hi-jinks ensue. This will be the best thing you see on the internet all day. (more…)
And here’s a little piece for those of you that haven’t managed to read the Game of Thrones books (or are avoiding them so that you don’t spoil everything). It looks like (duh) Season 4 will be getting messier, even more-so than the infamous Red Wedding. Kit Harrington, A.K.A. Jon Snow, came out and stated that there will be plenty of bodies dropping in the near future.
When talking to Access Hollywood, Harrington had this to say:
The much-beloved Game of Thrones television series has been going through some changes lately, mainly in the form of casting. Personally, I don’t see why anyone would want to jump ship on this amazing opportunity to gain both cash and clout, but whatever. First the show lost Ed Skrein (Daario Naharis) and now they’ll also be losing Ian Whyte (Ser Gregor Clegane).
The character of The Mountain originally started out being played by Conan Stevens, but that got changed up during the first season. Then they moved on to Whyte. And now, they move on yet again. This time around, an Icelandic monster of a man by the name of Hafthor Julius Bjornsson. Check out a pic of the guy below – he certainly does look the part if nothing else:
Thanks to blast for the heads-up.
