youtubeimage

Welcome to YouTube, please submit your personality to the algorithm! Join Vassals Michal (inkasrain), Casey (blue-eyed-queen), Jock (Munrojock2), Matt (blu3arm0r), Michael (Mordion), and Thomas-ish (FTWard) as they explore a fraction of the internet’s strange, wonderful, and essentially incomprehensible video place. Topics discussed include our own YouTube proclivities, the perils of family vlogging, capitalism, beauty guru drama, and how math can make you a radical. Plus, learn to carve a turkey and start a cult in less than ten minutes.

VoK 549: Words Cut Deeper than Swords (Ice & Fire Con Panel)



In their first ever panel at Ice & Fire Con, the Vassals of Kingsgrave rank their favourite passages from A Song of Ice and Fire. Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Casey (blue-eyed-queen) and Dan (Witless Chum) as they reflect on some of the most powerful moments of Martin’s dialogue and examine the meaning behind his prose – from Sansa’s twilit snow castle, to Dany’s desert hallucinations, to Catelyn’s fevered flight from Storm’s End.
