HBO’s A Game of Thrones – time to learn Dothraki!

Jay Tomio at BCS Review
I just got this from HBO, and it looks like fans of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series are getting the ultimate sign of making it in the nerd kingdom–our own secret language! Move over Klingon and Sindarin fluent losers brethren, and get ready for the stallion that mounts the world. According to the release, the honors went to David J. Peterson (not Mouse Guard):

“David J. Peterson, an expert language creator from the Language Creation Society (LCS), has been chosen to create the Dothraki language for HBO’s upcoming fantasy series GAME OF THRONES, based on the book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” by George R.R. Martin…The LCS solicited and vetted a number of proposals for the Dothraki language from its pool of experts, with Peterson’s proposal ultimately being selected by the GAME OF THRONES production team.”

Will Dr. Horrible 2 resurrect Penny? She talks!

Fans know that Day’s character perished at the end of Dr. Horrible. But Day confirmed to us that she is still in touch with the team that created Dr. Horrible, including Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancheroen, and she says they haven’t forgotten about Penny: “You know, I’m always socially involved with the Whedon clan, because they’re awesome and they love to have soirees,” Day said Sunday in Los Angeles on the red carpet for the Streamy Awards. “I e-mail back and forth all the time.”
