I have yet to see “Frozen,” but that damn “Let It Go” song is inescapable. I was on the verge of totally hating it, but then I saw this “Game of Thrones”/”Frozen” mashup, with lyrics like ”Who’s the hero on this show? / Tyrion? That new guy? Even book readers don’t know,” and I had a new appreciation. I wonder if the same approach would work with another song I’m sick of like, say, a “Happy”/”Hannibal” mashup? Hmm. [Rolling Stone]
If there are a million ways to do something wrong, there should be at least a few ways to do a thing right. In this series, Janet and Emily tackle your questions from two different perspectives. The result, we hope, is two right answers.
Janet is a stone-cold rationalist, baker, and monotreme from Australia. Her boobs played the field briefly before marrying themselves off to a skier-dude. Emily is from the Midwest, and is a single, straight, agnostic, whiskey-drinking softball player who’d love to use her Pinterest wedding board before all the pics go out of style. Both Janet and Emily are writers and comedians in New York.
Hi, not to be uncool, but my problem has to do with the return of “Game of Thrones.” The show is super violent, so I’m not particularly into it, but my boyfriend insists on watching it live that night. The thing is I think he’s only watching it for all the sexy stuff that happens in the show. In the season premiere, there was a scene where he yelled at the TV “take it off!” and sure enough, a male character pulled off the robes of all the women in the room like a minute later. He clearly gets excited, he’ll bounce his knee during these scenes. This is a creepy turnoff to me. — No Head For Ned Tonight Keep reading »

HBO has released a mess of new promo photos for the upcoming fourth season of “Game of Thrones,” which premieres on April 6. When we last left the seven kingdoms, Jaime Lannister had finally been reunited with his sister/lover, Queen Cersei; Tyrion and Sansa were married, but had not made a baby neither of them want, much to the chagrin of mean Daddy Lannister; we were still mourning the deaths of some very major characters, who perished in the infamous Red Wedding; and Daenerys had assembled her army of slaves and was ready to open a can o’ whoop ass on anyone who dared deny Khaleesi. So what’s ahead for season four? Let’s see what we can figure out based on these 16 promo photos…
Gaaaaame of fucking Thrones / Game of fucking Thronnnnnnnnes. That’s what I sing to the tune of the “Game of Thrones” theme music every time I hear it. Sometimes I sing it a capela too, usually when I’m trying to soothe myself through “GoT” withdrawals. But I won’t have to do that for too much longer, because season four starts on April 6! Okay, so that’s still four months from now, but HBO released the full fourth season trailer last night to whet our appetites for the usual blood, guts, fucking and mommy issues. Let’s see … Joffrey is still a little prick, Tyrion is still grumpy, and Cersei is still giving fierce bitch face. Meanwhile, Ygritte is still alive and potentially still has her eye on Jon Snow, Daenerys seems to be a bit power hungry and Jamie Lannister has a hot new haircut. Regarding the latter, I sure hope Cersei likes it because “Game of Thrones” needs a little romance (even of an incestuous nature). [Laughing Squid]
