I don't care that he's manipulative. You have to be to rule a nation. My problem is his whole motivation is a big FU to the world for doubting him. He has moments of benevolence, but by and large he's out to make himself powerful for his own sake and destroy anyone who ever wronged him just to make a point.

Hooray for your son!! My girl is actually a stylist, and prefers the red hair...she does a lot of work on gingers looking to hide it though haha.

I'm going to go on record right now and say that if it was up to me, I'd hunt down every last one of those little bastard Ewoks in their prairie dog holes and finish the job the First Men started several thousand years ago. Just do that, and everything will work out fine.

Have you read the one about them being Hobbits?

That the world Martin presents is Middle Earth after the Elves have left and the "Doom" in Valyria was Mt Doom erupting.

Something like that. I don't know enough LOTR to really get the minutia of it.

Valerian steel = Elvish

High Valerian language = Elvish

Targaryans are from a line of men who bred with Elves, thus their perchance for inbreeding, and why they have such unique characteristics.

Rholor is Sauron




The possibilities are endless.

That was a great interview with Conan - I wonder who he was talking about at the premiere? Maybe Shae?

Anywho, some very interesting stuff from GRRM. For those that missed it, at one point, he mentioned that he (paraphrasing) hopes that the tv series ends like the books do. In terms of the Red Wedding, the show killed off four characters that are still alive in the books. Conan asked if he knew the ending to the book series, and he said yes, in broad strokes, but he doesn't know for sure if the tv series will end the same way.

That leads me to believe that Robb's wife's death might be a little more significant than a simple snuffing out...can someone give me a list of the others that were spared in the books?

Also, it was great hearing GRRM talk about the inspiration for the series...he was very poor growing up in New Jersey, read lots of comics/watched tv, had a great imagination. The body of water between his hometown and Stanton Island had many ships with many flags, there were lights, the city so far away held a lot of unknowns and curiosities...a lot of the Westeros world was based off of that imagination.

I'm really not doing it justice, hopefully someone can provide a link to it once it's up. It was a really interesting look into the mind of the creator.

ALSO, he said (I'm sure it's already documented) that the WofW is going to be a 1500 pager, and he's writing pretty fast.

One more funny bit....when he watched the reaction videos, commented about how the people setting it up were the original readers of the series, who knew what was coming. Laughed and said something to the effect of, "now you know why your nerdy friends were all depressed 13 years ago". ha!

The other supporting piece of "evidence" for this theory is the opening theme. Watch it closely the next time, and notice the sun (with the GOT logo) - keep track of where it is during the whole sequence as they pan across the mechanical castles and across the sea. The entire land lies on the inside of the globe - ala middle earth.




I'm not saying that I believe the theory is legit, but I love the way that so much stuff is open to interpretation.

Wow!

Just watched it last night on the DVR.

The wife is yelling at the TV 'what are you doing Jon'. I'm LMAO telling her what do you expect she's a ginger.

Then the blood bath wedding hits. She says she's not watching this crap anymore and is mad.

From here on... It is said... I will now watch alone....

He has a short story collection book called Dreamsongs where he goes into much more depth. He used to plot these treacheries playing with turtles in what he refers to as "Turtle Castle": If a turtle died for ____(insert reason pets die), he'd create a scenario where the other turtles conspired against him to become ruler of the turtle kingdom, etc.

A lot of cool stories in their that lay the groundwork for the world he's created too (Ice Dragon, the Lonely Songs of Laren Dorr involves the 7, etc)

Did anyone see Martin as Conan's guest last night? It was pretty humorous. He said he has trouble keeping things straight between books, like the gender of certain horses and the color of some character's eyes - which astounds me considering how meticulous he is when he writes. He says he usually ends up calling some uberfan in Sweden to clarify the details. This is the author, mind you.

I have troubles in 300 page stories. I can't imagine what it's like in something that will span approx 10,000 pages.

I don't think he meant just at the red wedding, but throughout the show so far. The people that are dead in the show that hadn't died by this point in the books (that I can think of) are Talisa/Jeyne, the Tickler, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, and Mago.

We didn't see Xaro die, I don't think? Just locked in that vault, right?
