Not really though...the star from HBO's "Game of Thrones" had an opportunity to meet the adorably unhappy cat and decided to play along with his grouchy selfie companion.


UPDATE: We've learned this fantastically grumpy picture is a photoshopped fake. Either way, the resemblance is pretty uncanny. Well done, internets!

Dave Goldblatt, a Facebook employee from San Francisco, California is one of two people who donated $20,000 to George RR Martin's Prizeo campaign benefiting a wolf sanctuary in New Mexico. His prize? He'll be turned into a character and killed in Martin's upcoming book. Speaking to ABC News, Goldblatt said "I'm just lucky enough to be in a position to do this. Obviously, the money is going to charity, so it's an added bonus. I didn't immediately seek to help wolf sanctuaries, but the more I read about the charities, I learned it was a worthwhile cause." Goldblatt has chosen to be Valyrian, because he thinks they're cool and hopes to see more of them in the series.

The quotation marks you see here are because this isn't the first time that George R.R. Martin has "joined" twitter. There are literal dozens of parody accounts and false quotes attributed to everyone's favorite character-killer, and none of them have proven to be real so far. So, until that "verified" button shows up next to George's name up there, don't get too excited. That being said, that does look an awful lot like something Martin would tweet, eh?

UPDATE: Martin's publisher, Random House, confirms that the account is indeed real. Here's to Martin having a new distraction to keep him from finishing his books!

An English village named Kings Langley plans to change its name to Kings Landing - the name of the main fictional city in HBO's popular series, Game of Thrones. The change will occur for the first week of the show's season 3 DVD release.

The planned change came to fruition when one of the show's producers heard Kings Langley was a stop along the route of a train he was on. After talking with village officials about the possibility of them temporarily changing the area's name starting February 17th, they agreed with the hope that local business owners will get on board to encourage a growth in tourism.

With more than 4.2 million downloads per episode, Game of Thrones was the most pirated television show of 2012. However, less than 24 hours after the HBO epic fantasy show's third season premiere, TorrentFreak reported the episode had already been downloaded more than a million times, with one torrent having more than 160,000 simultaneous connections. No torrent has had that many connections since September 23rd, 2008, when more than 144,000 people downloaded the third season premiere of Heroes at once.

TorrentFreak also broke down the locations of the pirates, finding that Australia had the highest piracy rate while London had the highest concentration of pirates amongst major cities. Despite the massive amounts of downloads, the television premiere saw 6.7 million US viewers, despite airing against The Walking Dead's season finale.
