Embark on ‘Game of Thrones’ Cruise


Embark on ‘Game of Thrones’ Cruise

For me, one of the most memorable parts of reading George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons was Tyrion’s trip down the Rhoyne river. It was so vivid that I could almost feel the boat rocking beneath my feet, smell the stench of its water, and see the overgrown ruins along its banks. At the [...]

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 3.32.03 PMYou may recall the news last year that Icelandic – Dream pop? Post-rock? -Um, band – Sigur Ros had been cast for a cameo appearance in HBO’s A Game of Thrones. Dan Weiss and David Benioff are big fans of the band, and wanted them on the show. I probably doesn’t hurt that they spend so much time shooting in Iceland anyway!

Brilliant Teacher Threatens to Spoil ‘Game of Thrones’ for Misbehaving Students

Detention, demerits, or extra homework? Forget them. This German math teacher really knows how to get his students’ attention: by threatening them with A Game of Thrones spoilers.

Take a Peek At a Paragraph From George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Winds of Winter’

Austrian NFL Game Promo Pays Homage to ‘A Game of Thrones’


Screen Shot 2014-01-20 at 3.45.50 PMI wasn’t aware that American football had fans in Europe, but to be fair, the only thing I know about football is that it sometimes pre-empts television shows that I would rather watch.
