We’ve long been fans of  stopitsgingertime, the YouTube channel featuring a High School girl’s songs about “Doctor Who” and other genre television shows.  We highlighted one of her songs here.  Well, now she’s got a much bigger fan than us to champion her cause.  None other than Neil Gaiman, comic book and fantasy writer, not to mention author of this year’s brilliant “Doctor Who” episode “The Doctor’s Wife“.  This is what he had to say about the YouTube songstresses recent effort:

If that didn’t excite you then you’ve got something other than blood running through your veins.

Here’s a brand new teaser for HBO’s adaptation of George R. R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones.

Hmmm … will the color be that desaturated on the finished show?  If so, would be quite a curious choice for a fantasy series.
