Game of Thrones

Are you a fan of the Game of Thrones? This series rocks! If you love medieval fantasy, this is a must for you. Season 2 has come to an end and I can't wait for the next one. I really have to go get me them books to read.

The Iron Throne, the seat of kings in the Seven Kingdoms. Constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. Aegon the Conqueror had the Throne made from the swords surrendered by his enemies. It is supposed to have taken a thousand blades to make, heated in the breath of Balerion the Black Dread. The hammering had taken fifty-nine days.The Iron Throne is a monstrosity of spikes and jagged edges and twisted metal. It is uncomfortable, and the back is fanged with steel which makes leaning back impossible. Aegon I had it made this way deliberately, saying that a king should never sit easy.

For my hip hop homies, check out Game Of Thrones intro Hip Hop Remix. Hella dope ya'll...


If you like to rock it out, check out this metal rendition of the intro! Equally as cool!


This hilarious squeaky toy version! *laughs*

Plenty of version on YouTube so go check them out...

I also stumbled upon this.
HBO is selling a $30,000 replica of the iron throne! Add another $1,800 for shipping. The catch, it's not made of real swords but actually fibreglass. ( -_-)' Fuck, if I'm gonna pay $30,000 for it, it better be made of shit that has actually killed people, I mean, real swords at least. *laughs*

On the show, the Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. He made it from the swords surrendered by his enemies. Legend has it, it's made of a thousand swords that took 59 days to hammer out into a throne. Spikes and jagged edges in every direction make this one very intimidating lounge. Our version is constructed of hand-finished, hand-painted fiberglass and fire-proof resin that's been twisted and turned to re-create the Game of Thrones design. Now's your chance to own this very special custom-made piece of furniture that, by all appearances, is more closely related to art. Extra large in size, it measures over 7' in height, close to 6' in depth and 5.5' in width. Calling it "impressive" is an understatement.
