Andy Barefoot, just out there on the Internet, making crazy good data viz re: who all GoT smoked in all six Game of Thrones seasons and who did the smokin‘. So, so cool.
Looks like this, but, y’know, bigger & more interactive.
Watch the Throne, indeed.
Hey, there’s a new George R.R. Martin book coming out on Tuesday, 11/3. Just not the one you or anyone else wants. Instead, The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones is a book about the art and history of the world of Westeros and GRRM and his co-authors stopped by the 92nd Street Y to yammer at fanboys & girls about it. You can listen to the yammering here and look at the pretty, pretty pictures below. After the jump, see my favorite depiction of The Wall, which I almost had in my grasp but I let it slip away. Sad face.
**UPDATE** Much more after the jump:
To gird your loins for tonight’s fourth season premiere of Game of Thrones, Digg compiled every single on-screen death from the previous seasons and combined them into one 3-minute murder orgy. So now you can slake your near-insatiable bloodlust the next time you sit the porcelain throne.
Today is the day that most of America waits for (ed.note: not me). No, its not the first day of school. That’s just me. My new school looks a lot like Alcatraz from the outside…and on the inside as well, surprisingly enough. I don’t know how that place passes inspection every year. What I’m mean is Thursday night is the kickoff off the NFL season. Could it be possible that people who watch 300 pound guys brutalize each other over a ball also really enjoy fantasy political gamesmanship, dragons, dire wolves and 800 feet walls of ice? Eh, it’s probably the copious, copious boobs. But if you ask The Bleacher Report, they would say “yes, yes, one thousand times yes” (ed.note: I checked with BR; they said they would never say that). Here are some awesome pics of your favorite team getting the Game of Thrones treatment. Check out his page for the full list. (via Djroomba)
Courtesy of Draw the Simpsons, we have everyone’s current favorite fantasy series/maybe not-so-favorite book series re-imagined in the style of arguably EVERYONE’S favorite cartoon series. Atist ADNz has promised more in the series so keep an eye out either there or here.
