You know, as of late, Pesci and I have been discussing the future of FTBG.  Considering GRRM's output rate, we realized that we might be writing this blog for another ten years until the last book is out.  Ten years.  I mean, at some point, I'm going to run out of parody scripts, or snotty remarks, or cocaine.  And then where will we be? (If you guessed "Shivering and covered in snot in a rest stop bathroom," congratulations, you win!)  And after all, I'm pretty sure we've made our point; I can't imagine us getting any more undue attention than we've already received, or making friends with even more of the awesome supporters, webmasters, and ubergeeks that we've come in contact with since this began.

So we're really just filling time at this point...aren't we?

I don't know.  Because many others have taken the ball and gotten it rolling in a variety of creative and entertaining ways, and that makes me wonder if perhaps FTBG has outlived its usefulness.  After all, do I really have the time/effort/creativity to match this piece of brilliance from Paul and Storm? 

I doubt it.  And man, I would love to drink beers with these guys. 

However, that brings me to a new thought.  Even though the relevance of FTBG is a bit questionable at this point, it's great moments of humor and creativity like Paul and Storm's video that let me know that its mission is not.  Paul and Storm, thank you for reminding me that FTBG is not alone in the universe, that all of this has not been for naught, and that maybe, just maybe, there's more entertainment to be mined from the rich and glorious depths of ASOIAF. 

Waxing poetic on a beautiful Friday afternoon,

P.S. Once again, I have to say it...Paul and Storm, that video is fricking fantastic.

I just found this blog last week, and now this sounds like a farewell post!!! Don't stop now, you are the only sane voice in an insane fandom!

Maybe it's time and maybe your just a pansy
Ever since ADWD came out I have been expecting a post like this. "When are Liotta and Pesci gonna get back to their ordinary lives of cocaine and big, blonde hookers?" I would ask myself. Everytime I went here I was dreading what I would find. And now the time may have come to bid adieu to the two guys as pissed and self-destructive as me about this huge, fat tease known as George. When I first found you I was lost in a wasteland of misinformation(yeah Amazon I'll pre-order for April) and frustration. Then I found your blog. Finally someone who knew and could articulate in a manner both funny and profane what I, and many others were feeling. Bless you boys, what ever you decide you have my adimiration and deepest respect.

Ps: The video is awesome, nice shout out to that pretentious ass Gaiman as well.

Don't you dare
We need this blog. When Martin dies before finishing his last two books and the series gets canned for costing too much money (and not having an ending) this will be the only evidence that there ever WAS to be another book.

Desired outcome: Martin starts writing ASoIaF again.
Most probable outcome: a lengthy enter in his blog about how people are harassing him, how much he suffers when people want him to write the new book and all the other things he wants to do that are not writing ASoIaF.

It hasn't been for naught! We need you to carry on the torch that... something. Look, the blog is really funny and the world needs that, especially surrounded as we long-suffering fans are by new GRRM fans that do not know our pain (yet).

They will after it takes five years for the next book to come out.

Keep on... keepin' on.
