They actually aren't specifying which Jeyne she's playing. It could be Westerling or Poole...though the latter doesn't make any more sense than the former, looks-wise. It could even be a non-cannon character for all we know.
Have you seen this food blog? The blogger is making recipes based off the books. ^^
Ooooohh recipes based off the books sounds awesome!
Yeah, seen that before. Or not sure it is that one, there is another one too (named The Inn at the Crossroad, I think). Seems a great site, maybe I should try making some of those myself sometime. There was also news that there was a Game of Thrones cook book in making, based on the recipes of one blog.
Hey! What's up?
So when and where did you meet Yoshihiro Takahashi? Was he cool?
Someone wrote in my thread *gasp*
I'm cool. Started uni about 3 weeks ago. I've been busy at times, but it also has been lot of fun. Made new friends and contacts, and even learned a little. Not much any film making related yet, but we are getting there. Thursday/Friday spent on a camp/trip thing on Ideation course. We had few workshops, improv and stuff and it was a lot of fun. Feels kinda amusing that was considered studying.
Yoshihiro Takahashi was the guest of honor in Tracon 2011 last weekend. I'm not a huge Ginga fan, but I've watched the anime on VHS when I were a kid and have read the manga when they started publishing in finnish, so I wanted to really see the guy. There was an interview, which was pretty nice. Not too incredibly enlightening, but nice. He seemed a bit shy, but otherwise quite cool old mangaka. Promised to feature a finnish dog in his manga too. He also seemed genuinely suprised and pleased of the finnish Ginga fandom ^^
I were one of the lucky 200 who got a ticket to his signing event. The distributing of those tickets was a bloody mess. Completle fiasco. Worst was that there also were a lot of very young ones in midst of the trampling masses. At first there was a queue. It got rather long. Then a security control guy came to break the line, yelling it isn't THE queue, that the distribution desk doesn't even exist. At that time it was already past the informed time. Obviously the people didn't go away, but the nice queue turned into a mob. Then when they set a table on middle of the mass of people, you can guess what happened. Not very civilized things. And the security guards attitude and ill joking just made the situation worse.
The signing event itself went nicely. There was a very professional security gal, who directed the queue to a reasonable direction and kindly removed those without tickest from it. I met the guy shaked hands and got his autograph on the inner cover of Ginga Nagareboshi Gin vol 1. All in a few seconds.
What is Ideation course about? I've never heard of it before.
The autograph session sounds very chaotic. I would be annoyed that it was somewhat disorganized. Luckily it seems like everything went okay later on and it seems like you had fun meeting him.
Ideation is about coming up with ideas. Teamwork, making observations, thinking outside the box, going all zen mode. Teaching as different ways of approaching subjects with different working methods. That is art uni for you

Have you seen these pics yet?
Not all of those, but most. The pics are just flooding from Croatia, so it is hard to keep up. But that is pretty awesome. Last season set photos were a rare treat. Looks good, Dubrovinik seems like a perfect replacement for Malta as King's Landing.
Love the sig. You into viking metal? Well, many of Viking metal bands come from Finland
Well, not particulary viking metal, but folk metal in general is pretty cool. Not that I listen much of it, but there are a few bands I like. Like Ensiferum and to lesser extent Turisas and Finntroll.
Oh, and one of my favorites Amorphis has bit of folk metallish elements, and they use the epic poem Kalevala as source for lyrics. But it certainly isn't viking metal.
