    He told the GoT creators what the ending is (or at least some very conclusive details about it), but he's also gone on record saying that all of his notes will be burned if he dies before finishing.

    Posthumous trolling. The most hardcore kind of trolling.

    Fucking good. I would rather the series just ends in mystery (although god that would suck) rather than have his family release posthumous books based on notes or incomplete manuscripts. That is always the worst, just look at the crap Michael Chricton's family put out after his death based on the manuscripts and notes he left behind. His family released one book that was "finished" but hadn't had a final run through by the author ever to improve the novel and another book that was literally notes and about a third of a manuscript which is abysmal. Moral of the story is George finish the stuff before you die please.

    Gotta say.... I would ALMOST respect that. Kind of a "If I can't do it EXACTLY how I want, then fuck y'all no ones finding out the ending"

    of course I would still tear my fucking hair out.....

    If he did that then he would be my most beloved and hated author of all time.

    The Wheel of Time series had a worthy continuation after Robert Jordan's death. GRRM just needs to get close and talk to another author that he thinks would be good enough to carry the ASOIAF torch.

    I wonder how many of the actors have read the books to find out the destiny of their characters.

    Game of Thrones received zero nominations for Golden Globes. Zero. The year after wining best supporting actor and being nominated for best drama, it doesn't even merit a single nomination. What the hell?

    Fucking Newsroom got nominated over Game of Thrones. But then again Mad Men didn't get nominated either, outside of Hamm for Best Actor (wtf no nom for Pare?). So who knows. I can understand Breaking Bad and Homeland. I can see Downton getting a nom. But to add Newsroom and Boardwalk Empire over GoT and Mad Men is just retarded.

    Myeh I gave up on award ceremonies when Sherlock was beaten to 'best show' by the Only Way is Essex.

    Since then nothing has surprised me.

    Season 2 wasn't that brilliant in my opinion. The assault on King's Landing was really disappointing.

    Oh well. Season 3 will be the best season and anyone who has read the books will know why.

    March 31!

    March thirty fucking first! That's rreeaallllllyyy soon shit I doubt I'll even have time to finish watching the extras on the Bluray (comes out March 4th)

    Gods I can't wait, that trailer looks aaawwweeeessssoooooommmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeee, so many of the bits I'm REALLY looking forward to Hound Vs Beric, Jaime Vs the Brave Companions (as bad as this bit is for him, it'll make the general populace love him) Dany getting her army (really the last cool thing she does it's all down hill from here ) and soooo many more.

    Oh yeah, so much good stuff there:

    That had to be a hooded Reek on the rack there
    Rast covered in blood: will likely be the instigator of Crastor's keep
    climbing the wall looked freakin epic
    everything with Jaime and Brienne


    The blu-rays don't come out til March for yall? That's shitty
    Picked up my Lannister cover set from Best Buy earlier this week, some great stuff. The making of the Blackwater thing is especially good.

    Awesome. Joff's cliché evil overlord line kind of killed the moment though.
