I'm not going to link to the website from here, because it's definitely NSFW, but this is from the "About Us"

To create the perfect taste we let every single drop of our spirits run over the breasts of a special woman, one whose characteristics we saw reflected in the liquor.
 
This sensuality awakens the true character of our brands and gives them an identity, a soul, a spirit, a G-Spirit.


G-Spirits - available in vodka, rum, whisky, and.....something else that's poured over boobs.  Maybe Tequila?  I don't remember.

Needs a NSFW(erewolves) warning, next time.

Time to get off the chamber pot.

You might laugh at that one in hindsight once your done reading the books.

Well played, sir.

Is there any chance Robert is Jon Snow's father?

I don't think so....but his father may not be Ned.

and I hate people

I think you should start ending almost every statement with that phrase.

Yeah that was a bit of a mind F...  Freaky.  Sad.  You look for a "good guy" and they die like flies.

This is actually what I'm really coming to admire in Martin's storytelling.  He presents us with obvious, off the shelf good guys to keep our attention occupied while he takes his time fully developing the next wave of more complex, nuanced "good guys" for us to cheer for.

Middle of book 3.

I don't know...I think you may have to deal with overlap or you're going to be confused by storylines that HBO merged up.

Middle of book 3 is where the red wedding takes place.  You could start there and be current, but there are going to be a lot of characters that you've not been properly introduced to.

Book 1 was almost chapter by chapter the same as season one.

Book 2 HBO compressed a lot of stuff.  I think I'd start with Book 2, knowing that you're in territory you've already covered but picking up depth and details that inform what is going on in the later books.

Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
Mad Men - although this season is failing to grab me for some reason.
The Newsroom


Drop in on Veep when it's on. 

Otherwise my wife has hgtv/DIY/food on a constant loop.

Wish Cable would set up a package with just those five networks.

I think it would be more confusing to read after the show than before since most of the changes are consolidations of plotlines and characters for TV.  Could get confusing in the book to have to see familiar snippets in different characters' paths.

Damn you GOT - I actually find myself starting to care about what happens to Jamie Lannister!  The thing that really stood out to me in the scene where Dany was dealing with the slave trader was how much she had taken on the mannerisms and tone if Viserys - it was almost uncanny.

Jaime Lannister may be one of the most dynamicly developed characters I've ever come across in any literature.

I've assumed that the weddings would take place concurrently, cutting back and forth within the same episode. That's how I'd do it, anyway.

um....who is she.  My list just got rearranged.

The scenes with Arya were HBO's creation, but in the books I still found Tywin to be at least somewhat sympathetic as a character.  Still an ass, but he definitely wasn't a two dimensional villain once you understood how the Mad King had treated him and how much he valued his legacy.

The Danni language thing I actually think HBO handled better than the book did.  Or at least it had even more impact on the screen than on the page.
