A New Daario?

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , ,

Hmmmm. More internet buzz. The actor who portrayed Daario Naharris has been recast.

I was just starting to get used to him, too!

Michiel Huisman, who has been on Treme, is now set to play Daario. Will he live up to the fan's expectations? Only time will tell!

Heard a Rumour...

Apparently, the actor who played Tommen Baratheon has been replaced with the actor who played Martin Lannister in Season III.

According to Winter is Coming, that is the buzz on the street. I guess this change is needed, because after all, we know that certain events may be taking place in Season IV and I guess, in all honesty, Tommen has to look as though he has gotten a little bit older. My guess is that he was about 6 or 7 when the first season started. He has to look a little bit older for the coming events.

227 days to go!

Animated Shorts

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , , ,

A few days ago, I was on the internet and was watching a few animated short clips from Game of Thrones (off of the 109 We Come From the Future website), when I came across an article about an animated short about a street rat who, through a series of events, finds himself inside of a research lab and falls in love with a female albino rat. The title is called "One Rat Short." It was done in 2006.

I can't begin to tell you what watching "One Rat Short" did to me, or of its' aftermath on my somewhat happy and peaceful life.

Who knew that watching an animated short could reek tears and despair? I felt inconsolable, depressed and quite forlorn. I haven't felt like this since Brandon Stark was thrown from the window, since Lady was killed, since Ned Stark was beheaded and since the AWFUL Red Wedding.

I couldn't help but comparing the feelings of angst and heartache that the two rats endure in this short, to the love story of Daeneyrs and Khal Drogo, Ned and Catelyn Stark and Robb and Talisa Stark.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Sometimes, it is an act of violence that takes your loved one away. Other times, it is a mercy killing that needs to take place, because your loved one is no longer the same person and it hurts to see them suffering. Other situations, it is the act of betrayal and being stabbed (in the back) by someone you once trusted. In the case of the rats, it is a few seconds delay amongst chaos and the door closing, separating the loved ones for good.

I will post the link on my Game of Thrones links.

I am still bummed. Warning: when you watch this animated short, be prepared to cry. And make sure you have a box of Kleenex near by.

Next Theme Song

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , , ,

The second season of Game of Thrones had an incredible song called "Seven Devils" by Florence and the Machine.

Totally appropriate for what the season was showcasing.

I thought, will the folks at HBO pick another amazing song for the season three official trailer? Ding! Ding! They picked a song called "Bones" by the group MS MR. Extremely in tune with all the dark themes of season three.

I wonder...what song will be chosen for the fourth season's official trailer? March...8 months away.  A lot of wondering and waiting for us fans in the realm!

Vamps, Villains & Victors

Who do you consider to be the sexiest vamp on Game of Thrones?

Who, in your humble opinion, is the most dastardly of men, in the Seven Kingdoms?

Who do you think will reign supreme and come out on top - proving many people wrong and perhaps raising a few eyebrows?

I think Margaery is the sexiest vamp to hit the screen. Cunning, lethal and seductive, not only does she know how t play Joffrey like a lute, she dresses to accentuate her womanly curves and titillates with her come hither eyes.

The most vile, dastardly of men....well, this is a tough one! I asked my husband and his answer (right away, without hesitation) was Roose Bolton's bastard, Ramsay Snow.

I agree with his choice. I also want to add Walder Frey and Petyr Baelish in that club, too. Dirty rotten scoundrels! And yet, these men seem to be outlasting a lot of other people!

As for who will come out on top, well, I would love to see this happen: I would love for Arya Stark to somehow, someway, meet up with Dany Targaryen and become a member of her Queen's Guard. In fact, I would love to see those two women team up and have each others' back. Dany with her dragons and Arya with her street smart, assassin savvy skills, well, what more could you ask for?! Well, of course, I would love to add Tyrion Lannister to the mix. He would be the political advisor to Dany Targaryen. That would be SO awesome!

I'd also like to see Jaime say, "Eff you, Cersei!" and never, ever be under her malignant influence again! He should go off in search of Tyrion, beg his forgiveness and restore the bonds of brotherhood. I'd also like to see Jon Snow become the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch with Samwell Tarly by his side, as his most trusted confidant. I'd love to see Margaery rule - through Tommen and have her grandmother at her side as a political force to be reckoned with. BOOYEAH.

I'd like to see Cersei get her JUST DESSERTS. I would also like to see Bran and Rickon reunited with Jon, somehow, someway, with the Reeds, Osha and Hodor intact, too!

I know, I know. Perhaps this is just wishful thinking on my part...

WOW!! Ellaria Sands Casting!

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , ,

I was a huge fan of the HBO series, Rome. So you can just imagine my excitement at hearing that Indira Varma, who played Niome, in Rome, has been cast as Ellaria Sands, the paramour of the Red Viper!

I think she is going to be excellent - she has an exotic look and is quite alluring. I think we have something along the lines of 240 days or so to go until Season IV rolls around!

Good times, y'all!
