Here is a link to a version of the song "Rains Of Castamere".


I quite like it, I wish there were more of these to be found!

Aaaand I'm done.  Wow.  We're certainly on the cliff with a bunch of our main characters (old, new, and potential).  Jon Snow...Tyrion...Dany...Two new Targaryens...Cersei and her new Kingsguard....Stannis....Theon....Barristan...Davos seeking Rickon...Maybe Obara (heading to King's Landing to join the council from Dorne)...   I'm sure I missed a few.

The latest castings I have seen are here. http://winter-is-coming.net/  Changing the name of Asha is weird but I can understand why.  After waiting so long for this book, I'm a bit patient for the next one.  Probably read it and A Feast for Crows a time or two again to keep the timeline straight.

Just found a Kit Harrington clip (Mtv) where he says he wishes he had more scenes with Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and that he hasn't had any scenes with Dany....yet. Followed by the obligatory "who knows what might happen".  I'm thinking Mr Martin might be letting big things slip into pep talks and such.

just spotted on TDW geeks:

Writer Daniel Abraham and artist Tommy Patterson are adapting George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones — the novel, not the HBO show — into an ongoing series for Dynamite Comics.

Abraham says the comics will remain faithful to the novel. With 24 issues of 29 pages each, that means this adaptation will match the original nearly page for page.

The Game of Thrones comics will hit shelves starting in September,

Question for you fine folks.  How closely does the show align with the books?

Naturally there will be far more material in the books but the show is not straying from the story.

Thankx.  As I am reading the first book, I kept wondering how HBO could afford to produce something so richly and widely set.  What's your opinion of their depiction of the various castles and scenery?

It's my understanding that considerable effort is made to create the appropriate backdrop for each scene.  It's been a number of years since I've read the first few books, so any specifics might be lost on my memory's failings.  If you question how they can afford lavish productions, you have but to look at your bill and consider how many subscribers there are.

There are some pictures available now for the second season. Nobody in costume yet but some real interesting pictures of "The Seven" statues...
