“We did a screen test and so, they brought in cameras, and then there were four Jims and four Pams, and we got mix-and-matched. Every time I was matched with John, it was so easy and it just was so natural. On the second day, of auditions he leaned over to me and he said, ‘You’re my favorite Pam.’ And I said, ‘You’re my favorite Jim! Oh my gosh! I hope we both get it!’ So, when they called me and said that I got the role, I said, ‘Who’s Jim? Please say John Krasinski.’ They said, ‘Yes, it’s John Krasinski.’ And I knew. I started to cry and I knew that the two of us together… I couldn’t be Pam without him. He’s my Jim. He just is.”
Game of Thrones House Banners by Oliver Ibáñez
You can’t choose the House you’re born into in life but whether it be a blessing or a curse is the choice that’s all yours. Unfortunately there are no House Brooks banners (“When You Stare Into The Abyss of the Internet, It Also Stares Back At You”), but Oliver has created these ornate designs for all the major Houses in Westoros, available for purchase at Redbubble so you and your Bannermen can proudly match before their chosen King (or Khaleesi).
crossing essos: a journey across the eastern continent through music
(click photos to enlarge) [map from here]
in case anyone missed the memo, i love essos. probably more than westeros, to be honest. there’s still so much left unexplored and frankly, the diversity in cultures and all the awful problems (and wonderful things!) about all the various places are incredibly interesting to me. it’s shame we’ve really only had a few POV insights into what it’s like outside Braavos from those few foreigner characters that either want to conquer it or are just plain depressed and on the run. but i’m not going to get into any capital ‘I’ Issues. i just want to share my love! originally i had meant to just have walking rhythm songs to accompany a land journey across the dothraki sea (my favourite place) but slowly it turned into a full scope traverse from the narrow sea all the way to asshai.[ L I S T E N ]
