Aloha dudes,

So ... I'm super excited about Game of Thrones right now. We've got less than 24 hours before season 4 premieres, and I've been binging through seasons 1 through 3 to catch up. So excited.

Anyway, I thought if any of you were also fans of the show, you might get a kick out of what's going on in New Zealand. They apparently have a statue up - of King Joffrey. The statue is tied to a rope, which in turn is tied to some sort of pulley system, which is hooked up to twitter.

Basically, every time someone tweets the hash tag #BringDownTheKing, the rope gets a little tighter, until eventually the statue gets toppled. So funnnnnn.

Here's a link to the live video feed, where you can watch its progress haha.

Man I can't wait until the season starts. I've been meaning to rant and rant here on this blog about how much I hate various characters/aspects of the show, how I love others, and how I miss when Queen Regent Cersei played a good guy on "Terminator: The Sara Connor Chronicles" (but that for some reason she's much hotter now), but alas, I've been too busy with other shit.

If you guys are fans of the show too, drop me a line here or somewhere else and say hello!
