It's Like I Don't Even Have to Try Anymore

There are a litany of jokes coming to mind here, but I don't even know where to begin.  (Probably somewhere around "he is wearing a dark purple embroidered waistcoat.")  So I'm turning this one over to our reader(s).  Take a gander at this piece, and choose your favorite moment:

Lunch with the FT: George RR Martin

And once you're done chortling over that one, take a look at this new bit of merchandising, which really has raised the bar to a sickening degree. (Here's a suggestion: if you have $30,000 to blow on GOT-related items, I suggest you skip the trinkets and just pay me $30,000 a year to write this blog.  I'll even sign a contract guaranteeing it'll be done on schedule!  People do that, right?)

Now I must go to the laundromat and, perhaps, go running.  Y'all be cool.

It's good to know some things never change
Understandment of the year, "He says book six, The Winds of Winter, is “well under way” but still a couple of years from completion."

In response to whether GRRM has timelines on a spreadsheet, GRRM taps his head. This was a perfect explanation of the previous sentence.

I love how all of the courses of the meal were described too. I can't imagine someone doing this unless they were disgusted by the experience. Maybe I'm just projecting my distaste for GRRM.

"Well under way?" He has 100 pages written, and I'm sure those were out-takes from "Dance".

Hail to the King!
George is the epitome of gluttony and greed. Not since George Lukas has one franchise been milked and marketed to such extremes so quickly. At first, I thought the $30,000 Iron Throne replica was a joke. (I still think that it is a joke, but not the amusing kind, more of the ironic commentary on our society type.)

Wiener schnitzel indeed... think that was a pretty appropriate choice for the Lord of the Fries. Hope his handlers know the Heimlich maneuver they are gonna need it with the way this guy chows down.

Thanks for making me aware of this piece it is a virtual smorgasbord of GRRM foibles.
