Khal Drogo: A Cautionary Tale in the Value of Neosporin

Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Mamoa discuss the most accurate and anticlimactic death yet on “Game of Thrones” Some could say that the death of the hulking Khal Drogo from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga is a cautionary tale about disregarding the value of antiseptic. The Dothraki War Lord wins an impressive battle with an unruly soldier, only to succumb to infection from a nick in the chest left by an errant arahk (the scythe-like blade favored by Dothraki). Of course, there’s the…

What It’s Like to Live Spoiler-Free Post “Game of Thrones”

In a world of shocked Social Media Enthusiasts determined to ruin it for you. Last night marked the grand finale of the fourth season of “Game of Thrones” and, according to the World Wide Web, it was a shocker. As for this writer?

George R.R. Martin Isn’t Your Average Author…

For a multitude of reasons, of course. Perhaps the most interesting? Forget Microsoft Office Suite, Martin writes on Wordstar 4.0 — running on DOS.

Obviously — inevitably —  George R.R. Martin has a secondary computer where the author can browse the internet and check his email, but for writing his thousand page epics for A Song of Fire and Ice?  Wordstar 4.0 offers a secluded space free of distractions like those pesky spellchecks or the random facebook/reddit/livejournal detours. Catch Martin’s take on his unusual writing habits in an interview with late night talk show host Conan.

‘Game of Thrones’ Show Already Has Ending Figured Out

Are we really that surprised? Game of Thrones co-creator David Benioff told Vanity Fair that yes. Yes, they do have the ending figured out possibly before the book series wraps up. No, we really aren’t that shocked to hear this. We basically heard straight from the horse’s mouth that this might happen. George R.R. Martin certainly doesn’t want the show to catch up with him, but he might just have to smile and wave as it passes him by. In the upcoming April issue of…
