What can I say about this piece of music? Back when Game Of Thrones started I actually wasn’t a fan (yeah I know, some people right?). I dunno, it didn’t grab my attention for some reason. One thing I did love about the show though was the music, and eventually, 3 years later, I binged Seasons 1-3 and have been hooked ever since. It has also joined the ranks of House Of Cards and Westworld as the only show where even the opening titles get my full undivided attention and are never skipped. Ramin Djawadi is extremely hot property these last few years, contributing iconic music to this show, the aforementioned Westworld, Person Of Interest and he even branched out into the video game arena with Gears Of War 4, a series already noted for the high end work of Steve Jablonsky.
When it comes to covering Djawadi’s music then, there are restraints. We obviously don’t have a full orchestra to work with (how sweet that would be though) and there are an abundance of covers online of this piece already. What we settled on blends the style and sound of what we have uploaded to date with a higher level of production than we have strived for ever before. It was tough, there were reshoots, tweaks and alterations, but we’re damn satisfied with the finished product, hope you are too!

Game Of Thrones S05 E04 – “Sons Of The Harpy”
As someone who binged Seasons 1 – 3 of GoT I won’t profess to have the most patient mind when it comes to watching episodes week on week. I also have a bit of a mental block when it comes to the fantasy genre, this being my main exception due to the more grounded elements of the show thematically. All of that said, I have found Season 5 to date a little slow and bordering on boring. That is until “Sons Of The Harpy”. I hate to be that viewer who is only watching in anticipation of the next big wow factor moment but the finale of this week’s episode, along with some meaty moments preceding it, served for some great television and it now feels like Season 5 has kicked off in earnest.

Game Of Thrones S05E03 – “High Sparrow”
Ok, I’m not getting… Bored, per se. This is TV at its finest and I wouldn’t dream go about hating on GoT, but parts are starting to drag and I think I know why if you asked me at any point during Seasons 1-3 I would have told you how little I give a crap about Bran Stark and his three eyed raven mission. The decision was then taken that Bran, Hodor and company would be omitted from Season 5 entirely Continue reading The Goggle Box – The North Remembers
In earlier news this week we saw…nobody…cares. That’s right folks, Avengers : Age Of Ultron is out this weekend and so everything else is nothing and nothing is more important.

Game Of Thrones S05E02 – The House Of Black And White
Some notable returns this week in GOT in the shape of Drogon (seriously Dany, look after your pets) and Arya!! Finally one of the shows best characters is getting some screen time. Admittedly it still wasn’t a whole lot much of anything but Arya’s is the story most seem to be able to connect with and everytime Maisie Williams is on screen the show gets a little more, human. As mentioned Drogon made a return in the closing moment of this week’s episode and he’s still the rebellious teen we last saw him as. That Dany is fated to die at the talons of him or either one of her other two dragons seems more and more inevitable but her struggle with “motherhood” has and still is being portrayed very convincingly. Continue reading The Goggle Box – Daredevil And Dragons
What a week! Well no, not really. Irish Water, those guys again, sent bills to some, not to others, sent some more bills to those who already received them, billed some hundreds, billed others €1.42. Why? All so Ruth Kopparberg and co couldn’t go burning them or binning them or whatever waste of time their getting up to these days. Has the country got this boring that this is all we can make a fuss over? Hell no, that’s why we wrote about this instead:
