    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Have Ender's Game on right now. The actor who played Xoan Daxos (sp? Don't Have Clash of Kings handy now) is in it. We watched Mama a few nights back with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in it. Kinda fun to see him cheerful, although GoT/ASOIAF gives new meaning to "I'm the FUN Uncle."

    Create your Westerosi house

    House name: Gjet Sigil: Rearing white horned goat on a green background Motto: Devour Location: The North, Brandon's Gift Sworn to: House Stark Colors: White, green and gold A small house founded as a source of goat's milk, meat and hides to supply the Night's Watch. Due to their location in the north, the large, shaggy goats are incredibly cold hardy and resilient. Their lands are susceptible to wildling raids and the have developed a reputation as fierce defenders of their herds and lands. Unfortunately, the proximity to Castle Black lures many a member of the Night's Watch the the young women of the family, creating a steady stream of landless bastards to later join the same Watch as Brothers. OK, a lot of this is from my farm logo, but it works.

    DBF and I saw that at Wal-Mart in the $5 bin. "Hey look! It's Ned Stark and the Red Priestess ... as a blonde!"

    Nope, but I love Norse mythology. Heidrun was the great she-goat in Valhalla and mead flowed from her udders. My fiance and I just watched "Thor; The Dark World" last night and when Anthony Hopkins as Odin told Natalie Portman/Jane Foster that she was as out of place in Asgard as a goat at a banquet table, I explained to him that "The gods ALWAYS had at least 3 goats at ANY banquet table of theirs. Heidrun for the mead and Thor's goats Tanngrisnr and Tanngrindr (Tooth-gnasher and Tooth-grinder) had the unique ability to be cooked, eaten and resurrected so long as their bones were intact. Little disappointed that Marvel hasn't decided to show 2 giant goats in those movies ... but what can one do? I'm actually a mish-mash of Eastern Europe: Polish, Ukrainian & Russian. Although Poland and Russia were settled by Norse tribes from Sweden. My late husband was German/Austrian and Blackfoot Indian, so my last name is German. And most of my goats are of Swiss breeds: Saanens and Alpines. Thanks for the welcome, Lord Tyrion! :cool4:

    Hi, fairly new poster here Big fan of epic fantasy, so of course I love the series in book and TV formats. I'm a self-employed small farmer in northern Michigan, doing goat dairy, goat meat, chickens for meat and eggs. Active 4-H mom as well. I also ride horses and compete in endurance rides (long distance cross country). I also have a sheep and an Angora goat and do some fiber crafts like spinning, weaving and crochet. We have a Great Dane for our house dog, which is like having a direwolf that sleeps all the time. And right now, being in northern Michigan is a bit like living north of the wall (cold, lots of snow and pine trees and everyone hunts). I half expect to see White Walkers and mammoths when I wake up in the morning.
