    Game of Thrones Continues to Break Piracy Records

    Game of Thrones may not be the most watched show on television, but it's certainly the most pirated. It's set yet another record for being illegally downloaded online. HBO didn't seem to care much the last two times this happened, so will this time be any different?

    Paying Just to Watch Game of Thrones in Australia Can Cost $50 an Episode

    Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in television history, and for good reason: it's full of spoil-able plot points that everyone wants to talk about the next day, and only legally available to people who have to pay through the nose to get it.

    Goats Sing the Game of Thrones Theme Song and Butcher It Completely Like Everything Else Goats Touch

    Goats are the walking paradox of the animal kingdom. They make everything better by ruining everything, and "Game of Goats" proves that fact by letting goats sing along to the Game of Thrones theme song and completely destroy it.

    Those of us who were naive enough to think HBO might have fixed their mistake after the True Detective season finale were pretty disappointed when we couldn't watch the GoT season premiere last night, even hours after it first aired.

    Get Ready For Game of Thrones With These Buffy-Style Opening Credits

    Brace yourself: Game of Thrones season four premieres tonight. Sure, when we see the GOT opening credits later this evening, we'll be reminded of how beautiful they are - but remember your fave opening sequence of the 90s? The campy beginning to Buffy?

Nothing, that's what.

    Game of Thrones Parody of G.I. Joe PSA Parodies Should Be Named King of Parodies

    Somebody mashed up the first season of Game of Thrones with those old (by the Internet's standard, anyway) dubbed G.I. Joe public service announcement parodies by Fensler Films. The end result is pretty spectacular. Now, who wants a body massage? Mmmmm hmmmmmm. Body massage.

    But Seriously, This Game Of Thrones Parody Album “Shame of Tones” Is Incredible

    Yesterday, we wrote about the music video for a parody song called "Lannista's Paradise," rapped from the POV of Tyrion Lannister. We were led to believe than an entire album would be available, but knowing what today is, we were suspicious. Well, suspise (that's a word, right?) no longer, friends. It's real, and it's spectacular.
