    Board Issues 4

    Loading your site opened an ad for "ipopular" in a new window that started streaming video automatically. It took me a moment to figure out where the sound was coming from because I have a lot of windows open and it didn't open in a new tab like most pop-up ads do. This was using the Safari browser, and with the issues we've had and repeated warnings given about streaming video at work, this is probably going to get me written up or at least warned. Please screen your advertisers better.

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Feed the Tree by Belly seems like it could be inspiration for elements of the series, and it was pretty popular back when GRRM was writing his earliest drafts. This old man I've talked about Broke his own heart, Poured it in the ground Big red tree grew up and out, Throws up its leaves, Spins round and round. I know all this and more So take your hat off When you're talking to me And be there when I feed the tree This little squirrel I used to be Slammed her bike down the stairs They put silver where her teeth had been Baby silvertooth, she grins and grins I know all this and more So take your hat off boy When you're talking to me And be there when I feed the tree Take your hat off boy When you're talking to me And be there when I feed the tree This old man I used to be Spins around, around, around the tree Silver baby come to me I'll only hurt you in my dreams

    Mistakes/Contradictions in the books?

    I just assumed that the emancipation was not complete, and that the most powerful nobles were able to keep hold of their slave armies - maybe sent them somewhere else for a while. In fact, wasn't there text saying that not all the slaves left the city?

    Jojen Paste

    I saw a theory that Jojen is going to be eaten by Ghost, while Jon is either in his second life or temporarily warging him. There's a mention of a sinkhole that leads into the caves, what other reason than to have something fall accidentally into the cave? When Jojen and Meera first see Summer and Shaggydog, Meera is scared for Jojen, but Jojen is unafraid - the theory is that Jojen saw that he was going to be eaten by a direwolf and has told Meera, but did not tell her that it was a white direwolf. The theory is that Ghost is going to be drawn to the cave by Bloodraven or Bran and be starving to death when he gets there. He will fall through the sinkhole into the cave, and then come across a little crannogman who seems to be ready to be eaten.

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Jaime was awful in Oblivion. Tywin was awesome in The Golden Child. One of my favorite movies as a teenager.

    Big red-leafed trees that are to be respected and fed (human sacrifices), along with the idea of a silver girl who gets new, stronger teeth out of a tragedy, are all references to "Feed the Tree" by Belly.

    A Compendium of Theories v.2

    I believe she had triplets too, but I don't think that each one had a different father. Two were Howland's and one was Rhaegar's.

    Hah, I missed this the first time. Definitely not a coincidence. Brân the Blessed (Welsh: Bendigeidfran or Brân Fendigaidd, literally "Blessed Crow") is a giant and king of Britain in Welsh mythology. He appears in several of the Welsh Triads, but his most significant role is in the Second Branch of the Mabinogi, Branwen ferch Llŷr. He is a son of Llŷr and Penarddun, and the brother of Brânwen, Manawydan, Nisien and Efnysien. The name "Brân" in Welsh is usually translated as crow or raven.

    Y Mabinogi: Third Branch Pryderi returns from the disastrous Irish wars as one of the only Seven Survivors. Manawydan is another Survivor, and his good comrade and friend. They perform their duty of burying the dead king of Britain's head in London (Bran the Blessed) to protect Britain from invasion. But in their long time away, the kingship of Britain has been usurped by Manawydan's nephew Caswallon. I was struck by the head of a dead king being buried in a special place to protect the land from invasion, and his name being Bran. Bran Stark is a king, presumed dead, and buried - and many think the purpose of going underground is to protect Westeros from invasion.
