  1. I went, it was fine for a free exhibition but I also didn't find it crazy impressive. Some of the places were so niche that I couldn't even remember them despite having listened to the audiobooks twice (I never read the written novels, and I'm only halfway through The World of Ice and Fire). This would obviously have been even worse for someone who only knew the TV show (though that's on them). I don't know in how many different cities this was held, but I went in Berlin and they had a "cinema" where no film was being shown when we arrived and it was so crowded we didn't feel like waiting around for it to start. All in all, I expected a more multimedia experience, not just a gallery of concept art landscapes with little accompanying information (unless you wanted to stare at your smartphone the entire time)

    Opinion: Coolest Sounding Name

    For some reason I've always loved the name Brynden Rivers (even though his nickname is arguably even cooler). I don't want children but if I ever have a son I might consider naming him that (as first and middle name)

    Awful translations from aSoIaF

    In defense of translating the names into German, if Jon Snow had been Jon Snow instead of Jon Schnee in German, then Melisandre's "I only see snow", Mormont's raven constantly saying "Snow" etc. wouldn't work. However, they should have done it thoroughly, instead of keeping Jon's first name in English (Johann Schnee lol) as well as some other names like Tyrell, Tarly etc., and creating nonsense words like the aforementioned "Casterlystein". I haven't read the German translation, but I used it for research once and this was more than irritating.
