Rains of Castamere Cover from Game of Thrones

Spoiler alert! (Early Season 1 only…)

A giant White Walker popped up in my neighborhood about 3 weeks ago!

It was a billboard that pretty much just featured one ice-blue eye the size of a car along with the lettering:

GOT
7.16 at 9 HBO

A peace loving friend of mine was talking about the billboard with total disgust, “If you want people to be empowered, why show them scary stuff like that?”

I could see his point.

But I was also surprised to hear that, because when I saw the billboard, the empowerment of human kind was the last thing on my mind.

The first thing?

PURE GLEE IN ANTICIPATION OF SEASON 7!!!!!!! WEEEEE!

If that makes me a bad person, so be it. More on that later… 🙂

I was slow on the uptake getting into Game of Thrones.

I think I was bouncing around a lot on the road during the first few seasons, so I didn't really give it a look until about when Season 4 had finished.

I was still kind of on the fence through most of the first episode, but then during the final five minutes of Episode 1, little Bran got pushed out the window.

I was hooked.

(Because I needed to make sure he was ok!)

And with 4 Seasons worth of episodes stock piled…. those were the good ol' days!

Now I have to do stuff like this to make time pass in between seasons:

What about you? Are you looking forward to seeing how the GoT story continues?

What does the White Walker with his cold glowing eye balls really represent?

Winter has been coming for a while now… When it finally does, I imagine everyone will have to see the true adversary.

My fantasy is the characters are going to have to set aside the typical power struggles, wars, revenge and home dragon raising projects to actually work together for once.

Or am I just justifying a guilty pleasure???

Lemme know what you think!!!

  1. OK, so I really don’t know what the GOT is all about, so I really don’t GET the GOT, but I loved the video and loved the setting. And you’re lovely as usual.

  2. Really enjoyed hearing you with Circa Paleo at the renaissance fairs. Been awhile, notice your nails colored the same as your strings. Cool!!

  3. You inspire me. However hard I am finding the lessons to be. My issue is with memory…how do you keep all that music memorized? Any tips on that? I’m an older budding violinist!

  4. Hi Jenny \(**)/
    That was beautiful!

    Really love the outdoor setting. Like to think that Nature is greener too. 🙂

    BUT, there’s a problem…

    You stopped playing. 🙁

    Wish it was longer.

    Problem solved!

    I just hit re-play! \(**)/

    As always.. m(_ _)m
    Aloha,

  5. Played it by ear with you, comp. speakers on max. I then went with microphone through my amp. Duet style (mine on reverb concert hall) sounded great. Thanks for the op to play together! A

  6. hhmmmm up to your usual high standard. Also, GoT, I don’t think about it, I watch and munch popcorn, and I like the dragons ( I am welsh after all!} keep up the good work jen. 🙂

  7. Hi Jenny. Loved your rendition of Rains of Castamere, and it inspired me to download the sheet music. I doubt, though, that I will able to play it as well as you do.

  8. Thanks for sharing Jenny. I loved the tune, the space you chose and mostly the smile on your face…more please and thank you.

  9. I enjoyed that piece very much! Been playing for just over a year and have been a circa fan from day one. Come to Cincinnati!!!

  10. Thanks jenny, I enjoyed playing that when I checked my emails this morning, love the triple stops, not hard on the brain at 7 am! You look stunning in the woods on what’s obviously warmer weather than oz. take care, thanks again, Zoe.

  11. Very impressive! The setting, the sound and filming was very good. I wonder, will the music sound different if you played the same song in a winter setting; snow covered trees, snow on the ground? Either way, what an awesome rendition! Looking forward to more. Thank you.

  12. Can you send me the music sheet of this version and the one with your sister on the guitar (I want the Violin music sheet) Thanks
