geek candle 1

How would you like your home to smell like Hoth or the Shire? You can order those scents and more from Etsy seller Frostbeard. The shop offers 8oz candles in glass jars, tea lights, and tarts. All of the candles are soy-based, and the descriptions sound delicious. Hoth smells like “Aspen Winter, Fresh Driven Snow, Mint” while the Shire has an aroma of “Oakmoss, clover, aloe, with a hint of sweet cherry pipe tobacco!”

Other scents in the shop are inspired by Star Trek, Harry Potter, Breaking Bad, and more. I want to stock up!

queen's guards game of thrones

YouTuber Omer Barnea stopped by Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards last week and heard the Queen’s Guards play something unexpected: the theme song from the Game of Thrones. It takes a few notes to pick up the familiar tune, but it sounds closer and closer to the original as it goes on. Hey, at least it wasn’t “The Rains of Castamere.”

This glorious mashup between Game of Thrones and Adventure Time is the combined effort of Joe Hogan and Mike Vasquez. The characters look just fantastic with Finn making for an absolutely fierce Jon Snow.

The lines of the family trees on Game of Thrones are incredibly difficult to follow with all of the characters involved. It all leads to more than a few bastard children, including Jon Snow who is supposedly the child of Eddard Stark and a woman who has not been identified thus far (even in the books). A popular theory holds that he’s actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, known as the R+L=J theory. This video explains it all, but it’s up to you to decide if the theory holds any water.

Back in 2102 it was first announced that a Shannara TV series based on the Terry Brooks novels was a possibility. Fast forward to 2014 and it appears that the show will definitely be a reality as MTV pulled the trigger and greenlit a 10-episode first season.

Jon Favreau was originally going to direct as well as executive produce, but had to step down from the former role due to a scheduling conflict, so Jonathan Liebesman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will take over to direct the first 2 episodes. EW reports that Terry Brooks and Dan Farah are still in place to executive produce and the show will be written by writer-producers Al Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville).

There are no casting announcements yet, but we’ll keep you apprised once we have more news.

While this is probably not a show MTV would have done before Game Of Thrones, it’ll be interesting to see how it will do in the shadow of its popularity. On that note, prepare for the uninitiated to call the show a “ripoff” despite the fact that the first Shannara book (The Sword Of Shannara) came out in 1977. However, the series will be based on the second book (The Elfstones Of Shannara) as it is the book that really cemented the series.

jareth iron throne

Forget rooting for Daenerys Targaryen to take the Iron Throne of Westeros. Tumblr user Doodleholic has a much better king in mind: Jareth. You’ve got to admit that David Bowie looks right at home on the pointy chair, and hey, the character from Labyrinth couldn’t be any worse than Joffrey.

It’s an inevitably that HBO’s Game of Thrones is going to catch up the existing books of A Song of Ice and Fire. George R.R. Martin just isn’t writing fast enough. I admit that it’s frustrating to think the books may never get a proper ending, but I try to respect the author.

The pressure has to weigh on him though, and he probably hears about it all the time. But to people who speculate about his health and death? George R.R. Martin has some choice words. He told Swiss daily newspaper Tages-Anzeiger his feelings about folks who worry that he will die before the books are complete:

“I find that question, you know, pretty offensive, frankly, when people start speculating about my death and my health. So f**k you to those people.”

This was accompanied by an appropriate hand gesture.

Fair enough, Mr. Martin, fair enough.
