This has been a big week. The Supreme Court has been hearing arguments in two key gay marriage cases — the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 — and their eventual judgments will essentially reveal how the highest court in the land views the constitutionality of a ban on gay marriage. Supporters of marriage equality have been showing their support in a variety of ways, including changing their Facebook profile photos to some iteration of the equals sign in solidarity. Opponents of gay marriage have also been using Facebook to express their wildly cringeworthy, ignorant and discriminatory views. As this Sunday is the premiere of season three of “Game of Thrones,” here are 17 “GoT” GIFs reacting to some of the most inane (and public) anti-gay marriage status Facebook updates. Because marriage equality is coming and Westeros does not suffer fools. Keep reading »
What do you get when you combine the genius of “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” with “Game of Thrones”? It’s “How Khaleesi Got Her Dragons Back,” the timeless tale of a woman who just wants to find her goddamned lost dragons, and in the process finds love. Because really, what’s being the ruler of Westeros if you don’t have a handsome man and your dragons by your side? [HyperVocal] Keep reading »
Confession: I’ve never seen “Game of Thrones.” I know, I know; I shouldn’t be allowed to work for the Internet. I’m just a little bit gore-sensitive, like this one time I watched this movie “Valhalla Rising” and found it viscerally disturbing to the point of tears, and I’m worried that “GoT” is going to be like that for me, too. I should at least give it a chance, right? Anyway, even though I’ve never seen her in the show as Daenerys, I’m kind of obsessed with Emilia Clarke. She has the coolest eyebrows! And, duh, she looked amazing in this Victoria Beckham dress at the Season 3 premiere yesterday. I want her to be everywhere… and she probably will be. I just hope she isn’t actually dating Seth MacFarlane. She could do so, so much better.
I’m sorry, you weren’t expecting the “Game of Thrones”-inspired video parodies, mashups and cat comparisons to stop, were you? Because the internet never tires, didn’t you hear??!! Above, Peter Faulk reads a young Fred Savage an epic tale about fencing, fighting, torture, giants, monsters, true love, set in a land where winter is always coming. So good it’s almost inconceivable!
So excited for the new season of “Game of Thrones” (back March 31)! Excited enough, even, to post these ridiculous photos of “Game of Thrones” cat lookalikes, or “Game of Cats,” if you will. How much does this evil kitten look like evil Joffrey, right? Check out a couple more after the jump! [GQ] Keep reading »
Bonjour! I am back from Paris! I was supposed to be back yesterday, but I got detoured in Iceland. (Long story, but I went to the Blue Lagoon!) Anyway, back on the internet and look what wonderfulness has greeted me! “Game of Thrones,” re-imagined as a 1995 feel-good sitcom! Check out the opening credits above! [Cheezburger]
… it would look a lot like every single movie that is set in high school. Only with more, you know, dragons. [The Mary Sue]
Not that I’m ready for it to end anytime soon but yes, I am anxious to know how George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series ends. These characters have been through a lot and I’m rooting for more than one to “win” the Game of Thrones. But who will it be? Actress Emilia Clarke wants to know too.
Thanks to Charles Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister on the series, we know ”Game of Thrones” will be getting a fourth season. We sort of assumed as much anyway since HBO split the third book in half for the upcoming third season but it was a relief nonetheless. It means we’re that much closer to seeing Martin’s entire book series, which isn’t even finished, translated on screen. But Clarke would appreciate it if Martin would spill everything to her about Daenerys Targaryan. She spoke with Metro News:
“I’ve said to George ‘come on, tell me who wins, please!’ And he thinks I’m joking and I say, ‘no, no, I’m deadly serious!’ His lips are sealed. And I’m sure that David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] know but they don’t tell anyone –I’ve got them drunk and they still wouldn’t tell me.
I’ve been pleading with them, ‘tell me who wins!’ And they won’t say a word. They’re under lock and key. ! But I care passionately about what happens to Dany. How could I not?” Read more…
