Wedding at Walder Frey’s

I hopped off my horse, got to The Twins
With my Mom and my bannermen.
Thank the Gods my uncle promised that (what),
He will marry Roslin.

Ate bread and salt,
So protected by guest right.
They’ve been pushing for a bedding the whole damn night.
This wedding’s so crazy.
I’m so glad the Frey’s aren’t shady.

The wine is flowin’ and I’m feelin’ kinda boozy
So far this night has gone smoothly,
That’s when the music from the band played soft and low.
That Lannister song was on.
That Lannister song was on.
That Lannister song was on.

So I put my hands up
They’re playing that song,
Of Castamere and the Reynes.
I got caught in a trap like yeah.
Shot in the back like yeah.
I got my hands up,
They’re playin’ that song
It’s never gonna be okay.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.

Get shot two times and the table flips,
Everybody’s dying ’round me now.
Late Walder Frey overreacts
When someone goes and breaks a vow.

So shrill when my Mom cries for mercy.
It’s definitely not a pro-Stark party,
‘Cause all I see are these arrows
In my chest and in my shoulder.

My blood is flowin’ and I’m feelin’ kinda woozy.
Longsword shoved through my heart smoothly.
That’s when Roose Bolton dropped my favorite line,
“Lannisters send their regards.”
“Lannisters send their regards.”
“Lannisters send their regards.”

So I put my hands up
They’re playing that song,
Of Castamere and the Reynes.
I got caught in a trap like yeah.
Stabbed in the heart like yeah.
I got my hands up,
They’re playin’ that song
It’s never gonna be okay.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.

Heard Mom screamin’ as I died. (as I died)
Even Grey Wind could not hide. (could not hide)
Guess I married the wrong bride. (the wrong bride)
Tonight is one sick joke and I’m the punch line.

So I put my hands up
They’re playing that song,
Of Castamere and the Reynes.
I got caught in a trap like yeah.
Stabbed in the heart like yeah.
I got my hands up,
They’re playin’ that song
It’s never gonna be okay.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.

Of Castamere and the Reynes.

It’s never gonna be okay.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.
Yeah, it’s a wedding at Walder Frey’s.

Brother Love

King Robert said
That Ned Stark would be Hand.
And I’ve got something planned, I won’t tell.
Move up King’s Road to the Starks in the North
And in the back of huge Winterfell
Sits an old tower,
Where there ain’t no one.
And the King won’t know.
Let’s go have some fun.

It’s Love, Brother Love, say
Brother Love is all that I’ve ever known.
I’ve got three babies and they are all Jaime’s.
It won’t last long, The seed is strong.
Brother Love’s wrong.

We are making love
Since we’re finally alone
And then from the window, Bran looks in.
Eyes show he’s scared
And he swears he won’t tell
But the fact that he fell is on him.
“What I do for love.”
Is what Jaime spake.
And with just one shove,
Half Bran’s body breaks.

It’s Love, Brother Love, say
Brother Love is all that I’ve ever known.
I’ve got three babies and they are all Jaime’s.
It won’t last long, The seed is strong.
Brother Love’s wrong.

[Sermon]

Let’s go talk to Cat,
Our respects we’ll pay.
It is called treason
If she claims foul play.
Halle, halle, halle, halle
Halle, halle, halle, halle
It’s Love, Brother Love, say
Brother Love is all that I’ve ever known.
I’ve got three babies and they are all Jaime’s.
It wont last long
I say, Love, Brother Love, say
Brother Love is all that I’ve ever known.
I’ve got three babies and they are all Jaime’s.
It won’t last long…

 

Kingslayer

I’m the Kingsguard’s Lord Commander, Jaime Lannister.
There’s nothing wrong with me saying, I love my sister.

I was right to kill Aerys, to save Westeros from their King.
The Starks talk about Winter, and you know what they all say to me.

You’re a Kingslayer, Oathbreaker, no honor,
And you’re sleeping with Cersei.
You’re a Kingslayer, Oathbreaker, no honor,
And you’re sleeping with- A. Big. Ho.

The Mad King, obsessed with Wildfire, burnin’ out of control.
King’s Landing would have been a pyre; I saved every soul.

I was right to kill Aerys, to save Westeros from their King.
The Starks talk about Winter, and you know what they all say to me.

You’re a Kingslayer, Oathbreaker, no honor,
And you’re sleeping with Cersei.

Kingslayer!

Hail To The Redskins?

Today the US Patent and Trademark Office canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration.

I did not read the full 177-page legalese order.  I tried.  It’s too much.  I’m sure that there is an unbiased “for Dummies” version on the internet somewhere, and when I find it I will read it.  I doubt it will change my mind.

There is an image that is making the rounds on Facebook that really got to me.

As you can see, this was a very well thought out argument.  It brings up an excellent point.  White people used to be called Crackers, so Cracker Barrel is offensive.  How can we stand by and let that restaurant take advantage of that hatred and intolerance?

Because a cracker barrel is an actual thing.  A barrel full of crackers.  Not white people (AKA the “whip-crackers”), but legitimate edible crackers.  Soda crackers.  People would gather around the cracker barrel in the general store and chit-chat.  No one ever used the term “cracker barrel” in a demeaning and intolerant fashion.  It was never used to insult an entire portion of the population based on their race.

Redskin was.  Redskin was a term that was applied to Native Americans.  (Also to certain potatoes, but they don’t get offended.)  It was (and is) a derogatory term.  If you don’t think that there is a problem with the term, take a visit to the nearest reservation.  Call the Native Americans there “Redskins” to their face and see how you feel afterwards.  If you’re okay with yourself, you might be Dan Snyder.  If you’re a human being, you’d probably NOT DO IT because you know it is wrong.  I don’t doubt that there are more than a few people that would use that sort of ignorant term behind closed doors, but never directly to their target’s face.

However, that is what the Washington Redskins are doing.  They are walking right up to people and telling them that they are “less than”.  Less than what?  Take your pick.  They are different, so they don’t have to be treated fairly.  The trademark on the name “Redskins” was revoked because it is derogatory term today, and was still a derogatory term at the time the team was named.  You can’t trademark “Niggerfaggots” either, because it is designed to be insulting and demeaning to an entire group of people.

Now to be fair, the common assumption when someone says Redskins is the football team.  It isn’t a generally used insult towards Native Americans now, but they are the ones that want the name changed.  Native Americans are the ones that petitioned the Patent and Trademark Office, and they are the ones that have brought forth enough evidence to prove it isn’t a complimentary name.  I understand that the Washington Redskins have been a team and a brand for over 80 years, and they are one of the highest valued teams in the NFL.  It is up to them if they are going to change their name.  I doubt that they will anytime soon, but it will eventually happen.  My only hope is that they do it because they realize it is the right thing to do, and not because the government had to step in and force their hand.

Wolves

I know to stick ’em with the pointy end.
If you know what’s good for you, don’t get too close.
Learned Water Dancing from the best,
Syrio Forel, First Sword of Braavos.

And my list’s like Weese and Dunsen, Chiswyck and Poliver,
Raff the Sweetling, The Hound and The Tickler
I don’t care, I’m stabbing you with Needle in my dreams.
And then there’s still Sers Gregor, Ilyn, Amory, and Meryn.
Joffrey, Cersei, Red Woman, Tywin.
I don’t care, Valar Morghulis is my prayer.

And they’re not Direwolves (wolves).
And Winter is Coming,
They get a special gift from me.
I want to hear each of their screams.
I’ll never be “m’lady” (lady),
You can call me Arry.
And maybe I’ll kill, and kill, and kill, and kill.
Revenge for my family.

I’m the ghost in Harrenhal.
And fear cuts deeper than a sword, swift as a deer.
Kill them with a chicken bone if that’s all there is,
A girl has no honor.

Now the lone wolf is on the scene,
And I can’t wait to kill the queen.

Life is great without a care
Valar Morghulis is my prayer.

We Are The Night’s Watch

I took the black.
I’m in my prime.
It was my sentence.
I committed a crime.
Some bad mistakes,
I’ve made a few.
But I’ve been cleared of all the rape I did
And all I slew.

(And I need just go North, and North, and North, and North)

We are the Night’s Watch, my brothers,
And we’ll keep on fighting the Others.
We are the Night’s Watch.
We are the Night’s Watch.
No time for Wildlings
‘Cause we are the Night’s Watch on the Wall.

I’ve taken my vows,
Broken one or two.
I dig for buried treasure in Mole’s Town whenever I can.
My brother’s, too.

And now the horn has been sound.
Three times is weird.
Those blue eyed monsters will destroy all of Westeros,
I should just disappear!

(And I need just go South, and South, and South, and South)

We are the Night’s Watch, my brothers,
And we’ll keep on fighting the Others.
We are the Night’s Watch.
We are the Night’s Watch.
No time for Wildlings
‘Cause we are the Night’s Watch on the Wall.

We are the Night’s Watch, my brothers,
And we’ll keep on fighting the Others.
We are the Night’s Watch.
We are the Night’s Watch.
No time for Wildlings
‘Cause we are the Night’s Watch.

Hey Daenerys

Hey Daenerys, I’ve been so bored.
You were so cool,
Till Viserys had to go.
Crowning your bro.
And gave him some gold.
The Maegi was right to destroy your baby.

Jorah’s in the friendzone again.
Ain’t nothing here that I care to read for long.
Well, maybe Aegon.
And all that went wrong.
Targaryen’s used to be cool,
So why aren’t you?!

Oh, I hate that Dany girl,
But she makes Mister Martin happy.
He should kill her off in style.
Hey Daenerys,
You’re a Stormborn woman
But you make me wish a new chapter’s coming.
I’m skipping ahead, girl,
Your pages keep droning on!
Bring him back,
Bring him back,
Bring him back,
Prince Rhaegar!

Hey Daenerys, take your sweet time.
Your dragons won’t help with White Walkers or the Wights.
Cause we got the night,
full of Terrors, all right.
We can fight wars with passive aggression,
Too!
