Caucus Critters: Moondae Moppets: Game of Thrones

Wild Animal Group animal-welfare-group-photo-v31[1]_0.jpg
We'z a diverse group!

Good evening, Critter lovers! The other day, I was working. I have a part-time job editing academic textbooks. I suffer through the most stupor-inducing pedantic claptrap ever inscribed by hoomins, so you and your children don't have to. I wield my trusty red editing pen and wrestle the passive voice to its knees. After a while, however, this stuff puts me to sleep, so I listen to music to stay awake.

So as I say, the other day, I was working. I love Forté, so I was listening to them while I worked. And ever since, I cannot get their version of the Game of Thrones theme song out of my head. So I thought I'd share my earworm.

I don't have HBO, so I know very little about this Game of Thrones phenomenon. I read about it on Wikipedia whilst preparing for this post. But I will share what I know with you.

But first, The Recommendations:

•Our intent is to create a safe place to relax and play; please use common sense and have fun.
•Share any and all pootie/woozle/furry/feathery/leathery photos or issues that you would like.
•When it comes to problems, we may just have someone with experience who can help.
•If you would like a pic from the posts, please ask the poster. He/she may have a copyright to those pics. Many thanks.
•We love critters, so any/all photos that encourage human violence against an animal will be frowned upon and considered out of bounds!

Second, you must have Forté's music to listen to. If you play this and read the diary at the same time - and if you read and peruse photos at exactly the same speed I do - then the music and the diary will end at the same time. Pretty nifty, huh?

If you prefer, you can follow along with the lyrics, but then you might have to replay to read the diary, and you'll be ever more in danger of earworm!

In case you were curious, here is the translation, or so they say (in English and high Valyrian!)

Chaos is a Ladder

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. .
Skorī dēmalȳti tymptir tymis, ērinis iā morghūlis.

When you play the Game Of Thrones, you win or you die.
Skorī dēmalȳti tymptir tymis, ērinis iā morghūlis.

I will take what is mine.
Ñuhor līr gūrēnna.

What do we say to death?
Skoros morghot vestri?

Today, no.
Tubī daor.

Yes? NO
Kessa? DAOR

The night is dark and full of terrors.
Bantis zōbrie issa se ossȳngnoti lēdys.

Today, no.

Yes? NO

Well, that didn't work out as planned, apparently. But as the story goes, as I understand it, there is at least one king.

And there are dragons.

Which reminds me of rainbows. I love rainbows!

And apparently there are fantasy critters, although I don't know if they have one of these (they should)!

Maybe they just have unicorns

Certainly they have horses

And wolves.

Or maybe huskies. Wikipedia didn't seem sure!

So that's all the animals they mentioned.

Well how insulting! You know we're the real kings of the jungle, right?

Sorry, they didn't mention you! I'm sure it was an oversight.

Cat King marie_cecile_thijs_4[1].jpg
You know you don't have to be a big lion to be king

Yes, I do know that.

Good. We wouldn't want to have to bring you down to the basement

Oh no, not that!

Did they not mention hugs and floofiness?

Sorry, they did not. It's supposed to be kind of a dark story, I guess.

They don't know what they're missing!

This is true; they miss out on a lot.

Speaking of floofy, did you know this is what Angora rabbits look like?

And silkie chickens?

But I'm sure the series will all end well. Won't it?

Sure! Why not?

What could possibly go wrong?

You were correct, the music ended just as I finished the essay. Nice touch. Smile A commercial followed, though, which surprised me. Wink

Nice photos. Thanks for the change of pace from the crazy. Animals are so very soothing.

Have a beautiful evening! Meow!

Oops. I hate commercials! There wasn't one there on YouTube. No doubt a new plot by YouTube to make even more money for them.

Glad you enjoyed it. Meow back!

I'm always extremely reluctant to move if any of the animals have taken possession of my lap space too.

So children are being forced by their teachers to watch tonight, huh? I wonder if any of the teachers will apologize tomorrow?

Sitting beyond the fence, Mr and Mrs would hiss if you got any closer. As they can break bones with an angry wing flap, the hissing was a good reminder.

They took a lot of liberties, obviously, but decent singing. I just love the OST; I enjoy listening to it at work. I read that Ramin Djawadi, the GoT composer worked with Hans Zimmer, which makes a lot of sense and I can hear how he was influenced by that.
Now, Miracle of Sound does some good GoT songs as well, have you heard of them? They do a lot of video game songs mostly; this is my favorite:

(They're also on Spotify, believe it or not!) I wish I could create stuff like this. But, I just do Skyrim Jackass videos and other stupid crap. Lol

Well, Game of Thrones isn't for everyone; I decided to start reading it and see what all the hype was about, and I ended up liking it a lot more than I expected to but YMMV.

This shit is bananas.

very catchy.

I go through phases. When I was a kid I loved science fiction, hardcore like Asimov and Clarke although I also did Star Trek and Star Wars. Then as a young adult I was more into fantasy, played D&D in college and read tons of the stuff. Loved ghost stories, King and Koontz. Then I had a murder mystery phase, Agatha Christie and police procedurals. Now I'm more into suspense thrillers, especially legal and psychological ones. But even though they're more in the "real world," they're still really fantasy! When does everything turn out just fine like in books?

I'm sure I'll get back around to fantasy, and when I do, read up a storm including these. I'm not into paid cable, though, and probably never will be unless they start charging us a lot for Internet content. So I'm much more likely to read the books than watch the show.

I walk at a cemetery close by my house and the dawgs get to walk off leash there.
There are a few streams that Abby can cool off in, but sometimes she gets in them right before I'm ready to leave and then I have to wait for her to dry off and stay longer because she doesn't believe that she should have to stay outside and dry off before coming inside.
My carpet where she lies is already filthy and needs cleaning, and she won't lie on the rug I put down for her.
Sigh, one day I hope that I get to be the boss.

Yes, I'm afraid the pets get called many names, some uncomplimentary, although I try to do it in a somewhat gentle voice! They can be frustrating.

The number one name for the cats: Getoutfromunderfootbeforeyoukillme. I swear, they're going to find my body some day at the bottom of the stairs after I trip over a cat one time too many.

Rocky does pretty well. His number one name isn't too bad: Comeontreats! He usually listens to that one, but not always. Then things get a little more creative!
