Haven't gotten around to the books (the paperbacks of the first four are around here somewhere) or the TV show (I'll probably watch it after it's cancelled and Amazon does one of it's "ONE DAY ONLY! 75 PERCENT OFF!" sales on the boxed set), but I'm pretty sure I can safely and confidently declare this AWESOME.

Some day, the cat will realize what was done to it, and wreak a revenge most awesome and terrible.

Also, shouldn't that cat be spiraling up out of the earth or something?

Cats do not spiral from the Earth.
The Earth spirals around them.

So, how do you suppose they trained that cat? Do they instruct it to chase swordsmen?

A few months ago we got a new kitten, part Maine Coon. Little witch is a real she-devil and takes no shit. My wife decided on the name in one day: Arya.

I am going to send her after PapaLobo after graduation at Braavos.

Jesus, I can't even get my cat to stop licking its ass and watch the show with me. This cat knows the theme? My cat is stupid and useless.

I'm glad this was posted so I don't have to waste an AskMe on it. What kind of chord change is the very first chord change in the song? Comes right at about :05 or :06 when the cat sings it. Is it like minor to major, or is it something more complicated?

Bonus points for getting JJ Abrams to direct the video!

Thank you so much, capricorn. I'm happy to finally know, and happy that I was right. :)

All cats are Cersei and all dogs are Hodor.

Sticherbeast, if I could turn back time I would steal that line for the title of this post.
I cannot.

However, supporting evidence exists to your Hodor theory.

I propose that all cats are, in fact, not Cersei, but Syrio Forel.

In my head, despite years of LOLcat pidgin reeducation, all cats sound like him.

No no no. You don't have to be disemboweled, simple decapitation will be enough. You have missed the basic symmetry. Look, here's the deal: somebody has to read the books. That somebody has to be on hand during the TV show to explain all the extra weirdass shit to the people who are only watching the show. Without the books, the TV show is inexplicable. Without the TV show, the books are just another lengthy unfinished fantasy saga - albeit rather more well written and featuring vastly more violence but still.

This clip coupled with steamynachos' link has filled me with more delight than the entire second season could manage!

As I was recently looking for dogs to adopt, I discovered a litter at a local rescue... Longhaired chihuahuas, mostly blond but one brown, named after all the Lannisters. Most excellent.

I really appreciated that the cat in this video seemed just about as emotionally involved with the series as I am. Which is to say, to a completely inappropriate but satisfying degree.

I'm nearly 3/4 the way through Game of Thrones! Nearly! The end is coming! What's that you say? How many other books? Longer than the Bible? The end is not coming!

(This is brilliant btw)

That drove me batshit. Two great tastes that taste horrible together.

Why no I don't have a soul. Why do you ask?

Without the books, the TV show is inexplicable.

I've been watching it along with my mate at work. I've read the books; he hasn't. Also he has the attention span of Jez from Peep Show. He's managed to follow everything so far. I think the only bit I had to explain was how Loras managed to defeat Gregor in the jousting in season one.

It starts on a C minor (the riff goes Eb F G C) and then switches to C major (E F G C). When the main segment starts it goes back to C minor.

Without the books, the TV show is inexplicable.

I'd not read the books when I watched the television series and the only real problem was keeping track of the vast cast list in the first couple of episodes. I think I audibly groaned during the direwolf puppies scene 'There are six of them... one for each child' Oh god, that's six kids I've got to keep track of!

I'm approaching the end of A Storm of Swords right now, and man oh fuck did this provide some much-needed cheering up. Gracias.
