    1. The “Download” link links to ep. 362 instead of 363.

      Hearing you talk about Con of Throne really makes me want to come. Sadly I don’t live in the US and can’t afford to fly there :'( Are you going to stream or upload the Con of Thrones panels?

    2. Catspaw Assassin,

      Spaghetti western theme…

      Let’s see. How about we transplant some dialogue from the best Western ever made (Clint Eastwood’s “The Outlaw Josey Wales”) to Game of Thrones?

      Care to play along?

      For example….
      Arya: “It’s always like that….

      The Hound: “Like what?”

      Arya: “When I get to liking someone, they ain’t around long.”

      The Hound: “I noticed when you get to disliking someone, they ain’t around for long neither.”
      The Hound. “You a bounty hunter?”

      Rorge: “A man’s got to do something for a living.”

      The Hound: “Dyin’ ain’t much of a livin’ boy.”

    3. First off, the best western ever made is “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” also starring Clint Eastwood, but that’s all pasta under the bridge now.

      Bronn: There are two kinds of swordsmen, my friend. Those that come in by the door and those that come in by the transom.
      Beric Dondarrion: You never had a rope around your neck, Clegan. Well, I’m going to tell you something: when that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the devil bite your ass!
      Arya [to Meryn Trant]: I like big fat men like you. When they fall they make more noise. And sometimes they never get up.
      Brienne: I’m very happy you’re working with me, Pod. I get dressed, I kill him and be right back.
      Podrick: Listen, I forgot to mention… He’s not alone. There’s five of ’em.
      Brienne: Five?
      Podrick: Yeah, five of ’em.
      Brienne: So, that’s why you came to Brienne. [Pause] It doesn’t matter, I’ll kill them all.
      Syrio Forel: Every sword makes its own tune.

      Fun game! 😉

    4. Catspaw Assassin,

      Davos to Lyanna Mormont before Battle of Winterfell:

      “Get ready little lady. Hell is coming to breakfast.”
      Maester Aemon: “I used to have power. Now old age is creeping up on me.”
      Jon Snow (to Wildling chieftans):
      “I came here to die with you. Or live with you. Dying ain’t hard. It’s living that’s hard, when all you’ve ever cared about has been butchered or raped. I came here like this so you know my word of death is true, and so my word of life is then true. Governments don’t live together; people live together.”
      Bronn: “Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.”
      Rorge and “Biter”, about The Hound: “Not a hard man to track. Leaves dead bodies wherever he goes.”

    5. Well, I don’t know how the futures of the actors (the ones who haven’t done much outside GoT) will pan out but I get visions of Sophie Turner if she lasts in her craft and becomes Dame Sophie (if they are still making Dame Commanders of the British Empire then – albeit there isn’t a British Empire but they still make knights and dames of it*) – of some smart interviewer coming up to her and saying “and Dame Sophie – about that red wig you wore for Season 7 of Game of Thrones. She’s not going to be allowed to forget it if she lives to be 100 is she.

      Switching my computer on this morning the Google Doodle had a picture of St George and the Dragon. The Dragon was largely (and it was large!) was in silhouette but it was very a much a
      Drogon/GoT looking dragon though you can’t see how many legs it has as it’s sort of collapsed. I’m sure pictures of dragons often used to be like the Welsh dragon in the past – the effect of GoT on popular culture is all around us.

      * A title sometimes given to people under the British Honours system – Julian Glover (late lamented (?)Grand Maester Pycelle) got one in 2013 though of course he’s a Sir not a Dame.

    6. Violator,

      Were you addressing me? I did refer to the Sophie Turner’s red wig and the said wig was mentioned in the podcast. I mentioned a couple of things in passing. The podcast also referred to the Hound’s picture making one member of the podcast think of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” so the comments relating to that film did relate to the podcast. So I wouldn’t say the posts were “bogus”. A little levity sometimes in the comments is not forbidden as far as I know.

      You are of course free to make a comment that to your mind would be more on topic rather than just snark.

    7. Violator,

      I’d typed quite a long reply but lost it. I think the mods do try and get rid of those irritating threads/posts but the problem is another lot can go up almost as quickly as one lot is taken down. I agree those posts are a pain and may possibly dissuade people from commenting in the Forums (I think it’s a shame the Forums are less widely used). I can’t imagine the rubbish posts even being an effective method of advertising – after all if people want a pair of Nike shoes they can get themselves down to Nikeland. I apologise if I accused you of snark unjustly.

    8. A sort of Alt!Western, some of you will surely know the source… 🙂

      Season 4

      The Hound: “I’m trying to put this as delicately as I can… How do I know you won’t kill me in my sleep?”
      Arya: “You don’t know me. So let me explain this to you once: If I ever kill you, you’ll be awake, you’ll be facing me, and you’ll be armed.”
      The Hound: “Are you always this sentimental?”
      Arya: “Had a good day.”

      Season 6

      Cersei: “Would you like to lecture me the wickedness of my ways?”
      The High Sparrow: “I brought you some supper, but if you’d prefer a lecture, I’ve a few very catchy ones prepped. Sin and hellfire… one has lepers.”

      Cersei: “I won’t let any man take what’s mine. I doubt you’d do different, in my position.”
      The High Sparrow: “Well, lady I must say — You’re my kinda stupid.”

    9. Does anyone think Cersei will become Queen in the novels?

      Don’t we need a Great Council to agree to a Queen since that was ruled in the first one? This would count for Daenerys as much as for Cersei, who as far as I can see wouldn’t be able to hold onto power for long anyway since she has no constitutional right to it.

      She isn’t a usurper – she’s a tyrant in the strictest sense.

      It might seem like a small issue which the TV show can happily ignore, but not the books.

    10. Catspaw Assassin,

      I am not as familiar with the dialogue in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, though I have watched it several times.

      I was trying to find a GoT scene that fit Tuco’s line (from the bubble bath):
      “When you’re gonna shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.”

      Anyway, thanks for the entertaining diversion!

    11. I haven’t been able to listen to the podcast in a long time; therefore I apologize for the question, but are Micah and Eric no longer with game of owns?

    12. Just seen these posts. I have to agree the movie ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’ is great. Was a few years ago when I last saw it and was pleased to see it again recently on one of the UK Sky channels. Clint Eastward’s ability to spit on guy’s heads that he shot (and on other critters including that dog) was just as accurate as his shooting with a six-gun 🙂

    13. Dame of Mercia,

      I didn’t know Julian Glover has been knighted. Bravo. As to Sophie, IMHO she’s not likely to be damed unless she goes more classical, does a lot of theatre, and improves her acting, which with a few exceptions has been rather mediocre.


      No. I mean the ACTUAL discussion boards.

      They’ve been full of bogus threads and posts for a couple of weeks now.

      Are there any mods doing anything about this?

      I’ve wondered about this too. Every once in a while WOTW Forums are invaluable to initiate or participate in our own topics of discussion. It’s disappointing they’ve been spammed into disuse lately. And for what it’s worth, I think the best spaghetti western was “Once UPon a Time in the West”, which cut back dialogue for long, meaningful closeups.

    14. Ten Bears,

      I was trying to find a GoT scene that fit Tuco’s line (from the bubble bath):
      “When you’re gonna shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.”

      that’s my favorite line in TGTB&TU), but couldn’t come up with anyone either. Maybe I should’ve stuck to your use of “Outlaw Josey Wales,” which I agree is a great movie. 😉

    15. Catspaw Assassin,

      Okay, last one (from TOJW):

      Jorah (to wine merchant offering cask for Daeny):

      Jorah: “What’s in it?”

      Merchant: “I don’t know. Various things. I’m only the salesman.”

      Jorah: “You drink it.”

      Merchant: “What’s that?”

      Jorah: “You drink it.”

    16. Black Raven,

      About Josey Wales pinpoint spitting: Here’s my favorite scene (Carpetbagger in white suit):

      [Josey Wales and a boy with a bullet wound ride up to a ferry crossing, where they encounter a carpetbagger “elixir” salesman in a white suit. ]

      Carpetbagger: “Your young friend can use some help. This is it. One dollar a bottle. It works wonders on wounds.”

      Josey: “Works wonders on just about everything?”

      Carpetbagger: “It can do most anything.”

      (Josey Wales spits tobacco juice onto lapel of the carpetbagger’s white suit)

      Josey: “How is it with stains?”

    17. Ten Bears,

      Ah yes, I forgot about that scene with the Carpetbagger… Its a classic 😀

      I see now why you use ‘Ten Bears’ as your username. You must know that movie inside out 🙂 I’ve seen it loads of times over the years and always enjoy re-watching it. The old Indian chief he meets up with is a great character also.

      I vaguely recall Clint Eastwood was married to the actress (I’ve forgotten her name) who was the daughter of the old lady who he ended up working for at her son’s homestead She also appeared in some of his ‘Dirty Harry’ movies, but I don’t think that marriage lasted for too long!
