A Little George R. R. Martin Humor

This weekend I'll be down in San Diego getting my freaky geek on at Comic-Con, but that doesn't mean we can't still party it up here on the blog. Next week I'll have a full recap of the con, the panels, the stars, the costumes (no, I don't dress up, sorry). Today though, I found something super fun to share…

So there I was, checking my twitter lists when I saw this tweet from my sweet Nathan Fillion:

I don't know why, but my brother's shorts remind me of my cancelled tv shows. say.ly/ifW3Ftp

Wait, sorry that wasn't the one. This was:

This is only for Game of Thrones fans WHO READ THE BOOKS. youtube.com/embed/j7lp3Rhz… You're welcome.

Being that I did read the books, okay, so I only read the first three, I figured this meant me and therefore I could watch the video. It's hilarious. If you haven't read the books and want to watch the video, go ahead. We won't tell.

If you know anything about George R. R. Martin, you know it takes him AGES to write his books. We're talking five, six years between each one.

I had the good fortune to see him at Comic-Con last year and he really does wear that hat with his scruffy beard. He's a hoot and a half, but please! Write faster, George. For the sake of all those Game of Thrones fans, you simply must.

Have you read the books? Are you a fan of the HBO series? What's the longest you want to wait for a new release? Half a nanosecond? Me too!

    I did read the books, all five of them, and am patiently waiting for him to write like the wind and bring out the next one!

    Love the video, had seen it before but it’s always worth another watch.

      Ack, the rest of my post got eaten! What I tried to say was that I did enjoy the series so far, even though they stray from the books a little to simplify things for TV audiences (and add more sex because it’s HBO and apparently George didn’t include enough).

      Enjoy Comic Con (I’m soooo jealous that I don’t live on the west coast anymore)

    Awww, I’m sure you are having a blast! I love Nathan Fillion. I recently watched Game of Thrones. I sat down in one weekend and watched them all, they are fantastic. I haven’t read the books, should I pick them up?

    I recently read the review for the latest book. The second review on Amazon – omg! I was cracking up so hard. Dances with Dragons. If you haven’t read it you should pop over and read that review. It might put you into a giggle fit. Hehe Had a blast with you.

    I’m actually boycotting Martin for this very reason. Well, not just the fact that he writes slow. If he admitted he wouldn’t have a book out for six years, it’d be different, but to say it’ll be out, have it up on Amazon for pre-order, then keep changing the date for two years… Yeah. Where he really lost me was when we (his fans) were waiting for Dance with Dragons and he essentially told us to leave him alone and he wouldn’t give anymore updates until the book was done. Radio silence for MONTHS after that, aside from constant blog posts about baseball games, conventions, book signing tours…pretty much everything BUT writing. If you get paid in advance to write a book, you need to write that book in a reasonable time. I honestly don’t expect him to finish this next one. And if he does, it’ll be 8+ years from now. On a side note, he is an excellent writer and I loved the first four books. Won’t read the fifth anytime soon, though.

    Never read the books, but hubby is fan of the show. But. . . maybe I should wait until the series is complete before getting started?
