The long-rumored and promised studio recording of “Write Like the Wind (George R. R. Martin)” is here at last! It’s actually been done for a couple months; we’ve kept it under our helms while we worked to pull together a video. Which we did!
Wanna buy the song? You totes can!
All proceeds go towards allowing us to monkey around like this more in the near future.
Tom Merritt and Veronica Belmont were kind enough to give the video its world premiere on today’s episode of Sword and Laser on the Geek & Sundry YouTube channel—an episode, we’d like to mention, that also has a great interview with GRRM himself! (Our video is at the end of the episode, but the whole episode is worth watching)
Special thanks to Geek & Sundry for producing the video, in particular ÜberProducer/ShePriestess Kim Evey, line producer Lindey Koens, and director Chris Darnell. Mondo-thanks to Jeff Lewis for lending his hysterical self to the video.
SuperThanks to Shawn Strider and his Labyrinth Masquerade Ball for the schmancy duds and wicked arms. Mega-thanks to Veronica and Tom for debuting the song in such style. Extra thanks to Chris Dillon for helping this baby gestate.
Eternal perturbedness to Jonathan Coulton, whose Game of Thrones proselytizing got us hooked in the first place.

George R. R. Martin – not your bitch
