Game of Thrones, or as we call it around the office White People Fucking Their Siblings On Dragons w/Politics, has been renewed for a fifth and sixth season. This shouldn’t be surprising, as the show has slowly begun to consume our pop culture psyche at something like Breaking Badian levels.
Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are hanging around the Game of Thrones set for at least two more seasons. Which is fucking fantastic, since I have as much faith in George R.R. Martin finishing the novels, and other people being stewards of the show as I do in my proofreading. The minds behind the entirety of GoT up to this point ain’t going nowhere as of yet. And if the Gods are Good, the two brilliant fucks will see this son of a bitch all the way through.
You have to love George R.R. Martin, and his dripping diaper. Dude seems to be crapping his pants over the fact that Game of Thrones is catching up to his series. Instead of actually, you know, writing the next novels he seems to be coming up with a litany of ideas to cover his ass in case (NAY, WHEN) the television show burns through his material. His latest proposition? A movie.
My abandonment at the hands of a concluded True Detective is vicious. Stumbling, snot-nosed, crying through the aisles of 7-Eleven. My slurpee-vomit caked t-shirt displaying Rust’s face. My finger paint execution of said likeness, flawless. Thankfully though, there shall be a Throne soon arriving to quell this hysteria.
Join me in watching a new trailer for the show’s fourth season! Plus! Details about the show’s long term details!
Game of Thrones is getting a rap album. Like, an official rap album. With tracks by talent you’ve come to know. Fucking Big Boi, Wale and shit. The world is odd.
Meagan Marie generally fucking owns any sort of cosplay that she undertakes. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that her take on Daneyerysighaijuhiugfuckyoumartin Target is killer as well. But that don’t mean that we can’t bask in the glory all the same.
How do you do your best to mitigate the insipidity that is bringing the grizzled, Hard-R character John Constantine to regular television? Well. You cancel the pilot. But if you’re not going to do that, and we both know NBC isn’t, then you bring in dude who directed one of Game of Thrones‘ biggest episodes.
Well fuck me sideways! Game of Thrones has a return date. This means I’m going to have to finally conjure the fortitude to watch the last three episodes of season three. I mean — I read the book. But that ain’t having read ain’t the same as having seen The Red. You know?
2013 is no more. The New Year’s Day hangover has worn off, the world keeps turning, and the universe cares not how we mark the time. Nevertheless, we are here to reminisce, and the past year for me was pretty good, I gotta say. I’d describe it in detail, but I’m saving this shit for my autobiography. I can’t spoil the goods now, ya know? Let’s just say it was epic. Like “ripping Conan the Cimmerian from fictionspace, injecting him with bath salts and letting him loose during a live taping of Big Bang Theory” kinda epic.
What I can divulge to you all is the stuff that I really loved about the pop culture of 2013, and there was a lot to love, to be honest. Television has never been more bountiful, comic books had a banner year, and I bought more music in 2013 than I have in quite some time.
So, without further ado, and because I’m a goddamned list-maker/lover at heart, here’s some of my favorite stuff from the past 365.
Hey man, whatever. The reservoir of “Winter Is Coming” jokes dried up a long, long, long time ago. None the less, Telltale Games is making an episodic game series based off of Dragons and Incest.
Hit the jump for the teaser trailer.
