Why a Bethesda Game of Thrones video game might be *wonderful*.

No, don’t throw your keyboard through the screen yet.  Let’s think this through: “Bethesda Game Studios, developer of Elder Scrolls and Fallout, could be working on a Game of Thrones project. There’s very little detail however, and it’s largely supposition at this point.” Why is this maybe not such a bad thing? I’ll tell you why.

#rsrh Wow. I hadn’t realized that George R. R. Martin was a gay-baiter.

Kind of depressing.

I am way too busy these days for long political rants.

But I would be remiss if I do not at least make passing mention of how depressed, disgusted, and, yes, angry I’ve become as I watch the ongoing attempts at voter suppression in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, and other states where Republicans and their Teabagger[*] allies control key seats of power.

…OK, it’d be kind of depressing if I had ever got around to reading Game of Thrones, which will probably now wait a while longer.  But, hey, I’m sure that he doesn’t want my dirty conservative money anyway, am I right? Or that of Newsbusters (H/T).  Heck, if George R. R. Martin was asked, he’d probably retort that the Right doesn’t read books anyway.

:shrug: Look. I don’t care if you’re liberal, but if you don’t want conservatives reacting to the filth you say, don’t say any.  Keep the thought-worms in your head, and don’t let them out to play. (more…)
