Bask in the unmitigated gall of these obvious advertising rip-offs of well-known songs

Ah, advertising: The grand pursuit of selling human emotions back to the people who feel them. At its best, a great ad is a form of Don Draper-esque high art; more often, though, it’s a crude copy of something real, a notion that’s heavily emphasized whenever the commercial in question features an actual crude copy of…

George R.R. Martin is happy to talk about hats, Big Bang Theory, really anything that's not his next goddamn book

We have to assume it’s kind of tiring to be George R.R. Martin, a man who’s spent the last several decades of his life pushing a boulder called A Song Of Ice And Fire up a hill called “Dear God, I’m going to be writing this thing until I’m fucking 80.” That fatigue is presumably not helped by the fact that the boulder…
