Just more of the world where news announcers are picked for their comprehension of Terrence McKenna’s thesis of an androcentric fabricated world. …er, no, not as an all-sectors buy. News From Westeros is much better than Graywater Station, yikes.

Oh, thanks! I didn’t realize they were the creators. Shoulda read more…
