NEWS: ‘Game of Thrones’ eagerly awaited by jobless Spaniards
Posted by: TMWNN

This article is a great look into how beneficial Game of Thrones will be to the town of Osuna, Spain. Osuna has been chosen as a shooting location for Season 5, and the economic boost will help this town survive, providing work for some of the 35% of their unemployed. It feels good to be a fan of a show that can make such a big impact.

Posted by: Chetcommandosrockon

I continue to grow deeper and more in love with Liam. He’s as much of a fan as the rest of us, and he plays one of my favorite characters. I’d like to enjoy a few pints with him. Can you guess who he’s placed on the Throne?

    Did you guys get permission to publish from the original authors of this content? Either way, this seems like a cop-out “article” and lazy “journalism.”

    Matt,

    They sourced the links, and give credit where credit is due. No different than any other news aggregation site. Unlike most though, they cited their sources.

    Reddit Review? Some of this stuff is months old…and really, if I wanted repackaged information from reddit, I’d just – go to reddit.

    Personally I am glad that the great masses of the internet are skimmed and some content of interest is presented here for us. Some I am not impressed with, but others are really great finds. To each his own tastes. Thanks Thoros.

    And BTW, the jack Gleeson conference is nice. Not perfect, he does stumble in his rhythm, but he is impressive. He is brilliant, we’ll read, has a sense of humor, knows how to present balanced and referenced arguments, and has perspective on his own life situation. Impressive

    Geez, relax guys. In the absence of any actual news (where are my casting leaks?!), a reddit roundup is fine by me.

    I have no idea what Reddit is and no interest in finding out – so these posts are more for someone like me who would otherwise miss this content. Most of it is very throwaway but it’s nice to see things like the Gleeson speech.

    This is cool, you should make it a Reddit and Tumblr review

    This has to be fake right? It’s claiming Maisie Williams is leaving the show after S5, to go to college. Used direct quotes from her agent and David Benioff… Dear god, I hope it’s fabricated!

    King DBC,

    It’s a satirical/comedy news site (like The Onion). So don’t panic.

    Their pranks have caught people out majorly before though (FOX News have quoted them as fact at least once).

    King DBC,

    I don’t see how it CAN be real. Maisie signed a contract which binds her for 6 or 7 seasons. Surely, College can wait a couple of years? Especially in a show and a role of this magnitude? And can she even do that, break a contract?

    I call fake

    Chickenduck,

    My mistake. I’m not American (not a good excuse, I know) so wasn’t familiar with that fact. Thanks Chickenduck.

    I don’t browse Reddit, so a compilation like this is interesting, though it does reek of copy-and-paste journalism. I guess it’s ok in the offseason.
    But put in a bit more effort, please, Jack Gleeson’s lecture is months old.

    Yep, comedy fake news site, as said.

    Gleeson’s a smart guy, to be sure. But he’s clearly at the beginning of his academic career, and hasn’t yet learned how to naturally present his views without vomiting all the information he has learned from journals! But that will come with time. Great to see that he is able to self-reflect about his own situation, and to do it in an almost objective way. Not easy to do.

    Speak for yourself. Though Gleeson’s lecture may be months old, I missed it (and missed some of the other items complied here as well). These collections are very useful for those who don’t spend every waking hour tracking down everything GoT-related. Kudos to the team here at WiC for recognizing that.

    Loved Jack Gleeson’s lecture. Wish he had included his own experience with celebrity worship and how it effected him personally. Was he ever afraid to leave home? Did he wish his fans would get a life? How did his intellectual pursuit translate to his unique experience? Why does he have to distance himself from celebrity?

    At any rate, brilliant young man…

    I just watched the recap video and song. The best I’ve ever seen! Reddit saves time.

    Frankly, I have no idea about Reddit. Barely even know what it is. I only know that it’s useful for WiC to compile some news that I may have otherwise missed.

    Don’t listen to the naysayers and the d-bags. Props for some content I would have otherwise missed.

    Suggestions: the format was kinda weird for the mobile app and maybe add a little more to your insight after each clip and image. Kind of WHY you chose that particular image.

    Thanks and don’t fret the haters. Some people just get off on hating things. They have their right to not like it, but they could just as easily stop reading and carry on with their lives. Instead they tear you down and it makes them feel better about themselves. Pay it no mind. Cheers.
