Things We Saw Today: The Lannisters as the Addams Family

So what if the Lannister family of Game of Thrones had their own sitcom? It’d probably still be pretty messed up. We’d tune in. (io9)

  • Are you a grown person who still really loves Matilda? Good, us too. If you’d like to dress in Matilda-inspired outfits, The Frisky has some tips. (The Frisky)
  • Here’s a really short trailer for Doctor Who‘s “Asylum of the Daleks.” (Bleeding Cool)

We’re suckers for geeky jewelry. These superhero-inspired pieces are no exception. (Fashionably Geek)

  • Some French theaters have come up with a new tactic to keep trailer-filled spoilers at bay. (Blastr)
  • How do top-ten lists of the greatest movies of all time change when you ask critics versus when you ask a group of professional geeks? (Neatorama)
  • Pussy Riot have made voiced some remarks about what happened to them. Read the whole thing at N Plus One (n+1):

“In our performance we dared, without the Patriarch’s blessing, to unite the visual imagery of Orthodox culture with that of protest culture, thus suggesting that Orthodox culture belongs not only to the Russian Orthodox Church, the Patriarch, and Putin, but that it could also ally itself with civic rebellion and the spirit of protest in Russia.”

  • RIP Kavna, the beluga from “Baby Beluga.” (Mental Floss)
  • “Nimtopsical.” This and other awesome old-timey slang terms to describe being drunk, over at Mental Floss.

    Optimystical studios are amazing! I got a full set of Birds of Prey necklaces from them at Geek Girl Con, and they were absolutely lovely people.

    So now we know where Thing came from- its Jaime’s sword hand!

    I was working the booth (my friend Adrienne and her friend Elizabeth are the actual owners, Adrienne being the one who got to go to GeekGirlCon) and they really are wonderful.  Thank you for your lovely comment, I know that Adrienne would really appreciate it.

    The art style looks much more like Edward Gorey to me. So it looks like if Gorey drew the Lannisters as the Addams Family.
