Tormund and Davos talk about winning over the Wildlings to their side

In a Game of Thrones behind the scenes video released by HBO Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seasowrth) talk about recruiting the Wildlings to their side in the fight against Ramsay Bolton. Hivju agrees that it is a difficult task to convince the Wildlings to fight on their side after almost 95% of their population is wiped out. The Wildlings are tired and they are in no mood to fight, especially in the wars which they feel are not related to them. Tormund however reminds them that the only reason that they are alive is because Jon Snow fought for them and as a result he even had to lose his life.

That’s when the Wildlings realise that they need to do something about the situation and when Jon Snow tells them that if Ramsay and his allies manage to defeat him, they will come for the Wildlings next and that makes them understand that they have a part to play in the war against Ramsay Bolton. Liam Cunningham adds that even though the odds are heavily stacked against them and they don’t have a good chance of winning, it’s the right thing to do.

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

George R. R. Martin is one of the most famous fantasy writers of present times. If not for him, we wouldn’t be having the amazing world of Game of Thrones, HBO’s fantasy epic based on his A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Though much of his fanbase has grown weary of him, for making them wait for the next book in the series ‘Winds of Winter’, he is still a coveted literary figure, and no one can deny his importance in the entertainment industry.

Martin turned 73 on Monday, September 20, 2021, and birthday wishes have been pouring in for the veteran writer. He shared a nice poem about getting old on his blog Not a Blog:

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

I grow old… I grow old…

I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

((with thanks to T.S. Eliot))”

It is true that Martin is getting old, and many fans are worried if he’ll ever get to finish his novels. However, it is also true that he has been promising fans he will deliver the much-awaited books, while he is still working on other projects. We can only hope he is true to his word.

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

When you watch Game of Thrones, you always swear allegiance to a particular House or two, be it Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, or Greyjoy. But when it comes to ice creams, it becomes a really tough choice. And one particular shop in Cornwall is not making it easy for Game of Thrones fans at all. A Game of Thrones ice cream shop, Game of Cones, located in Fowey, Cornwall, UK, is making your dreams come true, in the form of your favourite sweet and icy dessert.

The dessert shop in Cornwall sells your favourite ice creams and milkshakes with a Game of Thrones twist. Over 33 flavours are available on their menu for you to choose from, each sharing name with a character on HBO’s epic fantasy. There’s also a House of Dragons cabinet for people to sit and enjoy their delicacy. It sounds awfully similar to the name of HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel!

We know that Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is being filmed at various locations in Cornwall, as many pictures have been leaked online with the cast in costume. Game of Cones will surely make a huge profit if the prequel lifts off.
