Quick Status Update

Hey folks, just a quick update: I’m going on vacation for the next three weeks. I’ll have access to wireless, but not constantly, and due to the time-zone change the podcast will have to be put on hold. Posting speed will experience a slow-down, although I plan to do some writing while I’m not visiting with relatives and seeing the sights.

Normal service will return mid-June.

RFTIT Weekly Tumblr Roundup

book2

Hey folks! It’s that time of the week again – I recorded a podcast for Episode 4, but am having a bit of an issue getting uploaded to Lawyers, Guns, and Money’s FTP servers. When that’s done, I’ll post it right away.

Tumblr Weekly Roundup!

book2

Hello folks! It’s time for another Tumblr Roundup (in fact, I haven’t done one in quite a while, so we’re overdue), but first a bit of a status update. The reason why the podcast isn’t up is that Cox Cable knocked out my podcasting partner’s whole neighborhood, so he wasn’t able to watch or podcast this week. So instead we’ll be doing a double-episode next week.

So what do we have in the Tumblrs?

Chapter-by-Chapter Analysis: Jaime I, ASOS

“He remembered the pail Lady Catelyn had kicked over in his cell. A strange woman, to trust her girls to a man with shit for honor.”

Synopsis: Brienne takes Jaime and Ser Cleos down the river, where they are almost caught by Ser Robin Ryger.

SPOILER WARNING: This chapter analysis, and all following, will contain spoilers for all Song of Ice and Fire novels and Game of Thrones episodes. Caveat lector.
