We’ve Been Saying “Khaleesi” Wrong And Other “Game Of Thrones” Language Trivia

In case you weren’t aware, the fluent High Valyrian we’ve been hearing in Season 3 of HBO’s hit series "Game of Thrones" is completely made up. Much like the Dothraki language, author George R.R. Martin had a few words of the lost city’s tongue in his novel series but it’s David J. Peterson who made it speakable. There’s just one…

The Mother Of Dragons Gets Her Army On “Game Of Thrones”

Last night's new episode of "Game of Thrones" ended in fiery blaze of glory for Daenerys Targaryen.

Peter Dinklage Doesn’t Believe He’s A Sex Symbol

Gwendolyn Christie Talks About Gender Roles & Fighting For “Game Of Thrones”‘ Brienne

I could write a whole article on how amazingly awesome Brienne of Tarth is just from my own perspective but in this case I’ll leave it up to the actress who plays her on HBO’s "Game of Thrones." Gwendoline Christie did an interview with TV Guide recently where she said some interesting things about gender roles in Westeros. “Brienne…

Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen Roleplayer Seeks Robb Stark Look-A-Like For Iron Throne Sex Romp

At this point in the "Game of Thrones" TV series (season three started a week-and-a-half ago), Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen and Robb Stark have not shared any screentime. (I don't know if they will in the future, as I haven't read all of George R. R. Martin's books.) But they are both vying to rule the Iro…

Peter Dinklage Turns Up Drunk On “Saturday Night Live”

Or more specifically, as Drunk Uncle's brother-in-law Peter Drunklage, who is arguably the drunkest of them all. Kids these days don't even wear garters anymore. And all they care about is "Tumblr me, Tumblr me." As for his Tumblr blog? Full of regret. Marco? Rubio! Amazing.

Tyrion Lannister Is Looking To Connect On LinkedIn

It can be hard out there for an imp. So it makes sense that Tyrion Lannister, the brains behind the whole House of Lannister operation, might be looking for a new gig via the career site LinkedIn.

5 Things We Learned At The “Game Of Thrones” Exhibit

Yesterday, Amelia and I went to the traveling "Game of Thrones" exhibition, because we are queen nerds who love nerding out about Khaleesi, Jon Snow, Cersei and the rest of the gang.

If Websites Existed In “Game Of Thrones”‘ Westeros

Caldwell Tanner didn’t use HBO’s Join the Realm website to create these unique House Sigils. Instead, he came up with his own designs for what popular websites might hang from their proverbial castle walls if they lived in the world of "Game of Thrones." And we decided to join in on the fun. Look at the House Sigil…

George R. R. Martin Says He Is “A Feminist At Heart”

"There was a period in my life when I would have called myself a feminist, back in the seventies, when the feminist movement was really getting going and growing out of the counter culture of the sixties,’ he says. ‘But the feminist movement has changed.

Well Played: Emilia Clarke In Blue Victoria Beckham

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…

If “Game Of Thrones” Was Made In 1995
