You know… I’m not jealous of Erica meeting Gwyneth Paltrow, I’m not jealous that Erica got to see perhaps the worst and most expensive bomb in the history of theatre, namely Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark… How can you turn off the dark anyway…? Is there a switch? Can I say to God…”God… is there a switch to turn off the night?” Just sounds like a joyous piece of crap! Sigh…
What am I jealous of? The fact that Erica gets to sit on the throne from the new HBO series Game of Thrones and see all the props and costumes on display. I mean hello! That’s the bomb diggity! That throne is awesome and I’ve heard the series, which just got picked up for season two… TODAY! Is Lord of the Rings awesome! Ugh… So jealous… Little Ms Erica got to sit on the Thor Throne at Comic Con last year… Did I? NO! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…. Now, she gets to sit on the Game of Thrones, throne! Say that three times fast!
Now, Erica said I could only post two pictures of her in the throne, and then she goes and sends me three photos, knowing full well I never listen! Plus, how adorable is she in that throne! I mean really! Even the purple shirt fits well… I mean seriously, how can I not post every pic of her looking cute in that Throne! HEH HEH HEH! Adorable!
Check out all of her pics and a small write up below! Totally awesome!
Just a bit of background:
The HBO store is hosting a whole mass of costumes and props straight from the sets of Game of Thrones. They’ll be rotating them periodically for the next couple of months before they (hopefully) ship things back to Europe to film season 2.
To promote the start of the series, HBO had the Iron Throne stationed in various cities around the US. In New York, we tracked it down to Union Square where they had a camera set up. There was a slight glitch so I got to sit on the throne for about 10 minutes and hammed it up. Also in the area – Pedicabs! For when you want your Iron Throne on the go!
