Game of Thrones Theme (x11)

Source: via AssassinCG.

Catchy TV intro theme songs were a dying art long before Lost proved an intro could be done in about 10 seconds. But not HBO's Game of Thrones. It takes over a minute and a half for that gorgeous theme song to play out.

Fans who happen to be musicians have been playing their own versions of GoT and posting their efforts to YouTube; we have 11 of them for you, plus the original. Their musical styles are as different as House Stark is from House Frey, but if you like the theme song, you'll find at least one clip to love.

Violins and heavy metal. I'm in HEAVEN.

Cum din fire-mi sunt rebel in ceea ce priveste produsele intens promovate (fie ele ce-or fi, carti, filme sau detergenti), pe de o parte, iar pe de alta putin stanjenit de propria-mi ignoranta, decid sa ignor aparitia. Pentru moment.

Vara 2011
Apar primele recenzii la recent lansata antologie Steampunk romaneasca. Recenziile suna interesant, nu ridica in slavi, nu ingroapa din start, sunt destul de tolerante (sa zicem), un dinte in plus sau minus ici si colo, dar per total...
