I thought this was pretty funny.  I'm not sure how funny it is if you haven't read Neil Gaiman's reply to a fan complaining about GRRM's legendary "glacial" writing.

The "Write Like the Wind" song itself?  I get why it's amusing to people waiting on the next book (I suppose I'm among them now).  I'd probably get it more if I'd been reading the series since '98 like some people have.  I also get why it's really kind of annoying in that it reflects that entitled attitude.  It's not exactly easy to write a hugeass saga, especially with millions of people twiddling their thumbs and complaining if they see you doing anything that's not working on the novels.

Jason Momoa's Khal Drogo audition tape.  This is awesome if you're familiar with the thing he's doing.  That was an inspired notion.

The actors who play the Stark kids singing the opening theme.  Sort of.


I was looking at the Lord of the Rings Musical's wikipedia entry, as one does, and I noticed some songs on the synopsis that were not on the cast recording (boo).  Luckily, ne'er-do-wells who make covert use of their recording devices during the show have come to our rescue.

Poor audio, but worth a listen if you're a fan of the London cast recording )

I don't really have many shows I watch, but this week has been a good one for me TV-wise.

Game of Thrones 03.02 'Dark Wings, Dark Words'
minor spoilers )

Doctor Who 07.07 'The Rings of Akhaten'
fair warning: while I have never wanted to be a spoilsport about the Ponds, this reaction might bum out people who are still feeling the loss of the Ponds )

Adventure Time season 1
vague general impression )

I've been thinking for a while that Petyr Baelish sounds a lot like "my" Mairon would sound (not looks like, mind, he could hardly look more dissimilar).  Beginning to rewatch season 2 of Game of Thrones just kind of confirmed that via a scene where Baelish is being particularly manipulative with a crying employee.  Yeah, that's definitely the timbre and inflection of Huinarium!Mairon.  =D

Scene in question starts ~3:!0.  It's GoT so this should probably go without saying, but the below video contains dark subject matter, graphic nudity & c.  And obviously spoilers for those who haven't seen S2 and are concerned with such.

So when I went to the bus stop after class, there was this dude in this really cool grey suit (like, distinctive and slightly quirky and old-fashioned, but I don't know what they call the pattern) who also looked like the lovechild of Jamie Jaime [spellitrightyouuselesscur] Lannister and an ex of mine.Me being awkward and making up goofy GoT-related stories in my head )
