Satire is not for the faint of heart, friends. There we were, innocently opening up w00tstock 5.0 in San Diego by playing our song “Write Like the Wind” when, without provocation or warning, an act of great violence was perpetrated upon yours trulies. Sure, we may have touched a sore spot by imploring George R. R. Martin to write faster. And yes, we may have called him the Great Bearded Glacier. And YES, we’d been warned by Neil Gaiman that George R. R. Martin is not our bitch.
OKAY, FINE…we deserved it. And we should also be grateful that only our guitar was harmed, considering how poorly musicians fare in ASOIAF. So enjoy our comeuppance in three-camera HD by UAT Digital Video (below), or witness it in Veronica Belmont’s scoop video. And yes, if case you were wondering, it was a “Stark”-brand guitar.
