“My Editor’s Head Exploded”: George R.R. Martin on ‘A World of Ice and Fire’ and What Makes Him Different From Tolkien at 92Y

A World of Ice and Fire, the book Salon critic Laura Miller likened to the Silmarillion of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world, is probably most notable to many fans for what it’s not: the long-awaited sixth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, the fantasy series the new book is a companion to. It also doesn’t tell the reader much about what’s happening, or will happen, on Game of Thrones. But the book, the result of six years of collaboration between Martin, two superfans, and over two dozen artists, is a testament to the staggeringly detailed “secondary world” Martin has created — a world that even five books and 40 episodes of television couldn’t fully contain. … Read More

Pop Culture-Inspired Photos of an Adorable Dog in Illustrated Scenes

Adorable, Budweiser-loving bull terrier Spuds MacKenzie was the most famous dog of the 1980s, but the most popular bull terrier of 2014 is a pup named Jimmy Choo. The photogenic pooch, who we learned of on Photojojo resides with his human Rafael Mantesso—a Brazilian restaurateur and marketing exec. Mantesso also happens to be a talented artist. His illustrations adorn the backgrounds of his fun photos of Jimmy. We’re especially fond of the pop culture-inspired pics, including an homage to performance artist Marina Abramović (in this case, “Marina Abramobull”), Disney’s Lady and the Tramp, and Game of Thrones. Get to know darling dog Jimmy Choo in our gallery. … Read More

If “R + L = J” Blew Your Mind, Just Watch These Insane ‘Game of Thrones’ Conspiracy Theory Videos

In the past couple of weeks, n00bs who haven’t been reading A Song of Ice and Fire (and talking about it on Internet forums) since 1997 took notice of a certain fan theory called “R+L=J.” Its thesis — that Jon Snow is actually Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s kid, not Ned Stark’s — is so well-supported that the theory’s about as controversial as saying Tyrion’s your favorite character. But as we pointed out a few months ago, “R + L = J” is just a tip of the speculative iceberg. An iceberg that’s also home to YouTube user Preston Jacobs, whose theories are among the most comprehensive I’ve seen to date. They’re also completely addictive, and also a little bit batshit. … Read More
