A Song Ice and Fire Review

In his commitment to reality lies the greatness of George R.R. Martin. This series is not another epic battle between good and evil. Not even close. There are no members of the Order and no Death Eaters here. What I mean is, we always knew Harry Potter was going to defeat Voldemort. It was just a question of how it was going to happen. We were only along for the ride, but we already knew where we were going. The beauty of ASOIAF is the fact that you don’t know where you’re headed. 

No, more like, you won’t even know what direction you’d want to take. And if you’ll forgive my passionate Filipino, putang ina, dalawa pa nga lang na nag-aagawan naguguluhan ka na kung kanino ka kakampi, gawin mo pa kayang ANIM.

Because it’s not another good vs. evil story (and I cannot stress this enough, because this really is the magic of the book), you won’t know which side to root for. There’s a bit (or maybe loads) of good and a bit (or maybe loads) of evil in every contender.

Let us examine that claim, shall we?

Shooting Locations for Game of Thrones Season 2: Croatia and Iceland

Greetings my Ladies and Lords!

It is I, the not-so-wild Wilding here, reporting for duty. During my recent trips to the outer realm (wish I could' have stayed longer… Loving every bit of it, by the way), I had the chance to talk with the director of the Game of Thrones.

He told me that for the second season of the dramatization of our realm will be shot at two different locations: Croatia and Iceland. Just take a look on this picture:


It looked familiar, eh?

The Cersei-Jaime Affair


Jaime and I had been together since forever.

We have shared a womb and came to the world together. When we were young, my father told us that I should marry a rightful king and Jaime would be the strongest knight of the realm.

Jaime in fact is my twin brother but as I get older, my feelings for him started to change – it went to the next level. And from that moment, I already knew that Jaime is MORE than my twin brother. He is my one and only.

We belong together.

Game of Thrones: Main Title Cover

Greetings my Ladies and Lords!

While doing my rounds lurking over the internet, I saw this video. This kid from the other realm is playing a musical instrument called violin. It is a string instrument, similar to harp although the violinist (yes, that’s what the people from the other realm call to a person who plays this instrument) has to rub a bow with strings of horsehair attached to it.

Wonderful cover of Game of Thrones originally composed by Ramin Djawadi

I cannot fathom how he managed to put multiple videos on one video my Ladies and Lords but all I can say is, I am stunned with the boy’s talent.

Just click the ‘play’ button and listen.


Enjoy my Lords and Ladies!

Bran Stark: Life After the Fall

I never thought that my life would be different after I fell from the tower, or shall I say, when a stunningly handsome yet evil man pushed me from the tower.


It seemed that I slept for an eternity.

But no, the moment I woke up from a terrible nightmare, my mother was there, still weeping. I do not understand why. I am still alive. For seconds, I just stared at the ceiling, thinking of what to do next.

And then it dawned on me.

Greetings, my Lords and Ladies!

I welcome you to this innovative yet humble abode of the Game of Thrones! 

My name is Renz and I am one of the vicious Wildings who lived beyond The Wall. Since majority of The North is not mapped yet, I have devised a new system that would determine the precise topographical characteristics beyond The Wall. It may sound absurd, my Ladies and Lords, but let me tell you one thing: I may be a Wilding; I may lurk and hunt for dire wolves within the frigid cold The Haunted Forest but I am more creative and more intelligent than you are.

I had the chance to acquire some of the advanced technologies available from another realm that you are not aware of. This is just one of my ways to keep in touch with the other realm; to be aware of our existence. And oh, believe it or not my dear Lords and Ladies, they have actually created a drama based on our realm! The funny thing was, they didn't know that WE actually existed!

I have already sent some of my allies to the south to bring you this kind of innovative technology. In the other realm, they send messages to their friends in just a few clicks. They receive messages in just an instant. I suggest that we adapt this kind of technology in order not to waste precious time of waiting for our messages to come. Take note that in the other realm, crows were never used as a mode of communication.

This thing that they call "blog" will allow us to view the latest happenings in King's Landing, Winterfell and other kingdoms. Moreso, I'd want to show what the other world looked like and some updates about their drama about our realm.

That is it for now, my Lords and Ladies. I do hope that you won't have any second thoughts about my offer.

It's for your own good, my Lords and Ladies.
