House words: Winter is Coming

House Stark is one of the great houses of Westeros, and The Wardens of the North. In the days of Old they ruled as Kings of Winter, but became a part of the Seven Kingdoms during the Targaryen Conquest. They have been Wardens of the North since the conquest, and many lesser houses are sworn to them, such as House Poole and House Cassel.

The seat of House Stark is in Winterfell, an ancient castle.

Their sigil is grey direwolf racing across a field of white.

(The redone sigil for the HBO adaptation)

Tyrion Lannister is the youngest son of Tywin and Joanna Lannister. He is a dwarf, and is often mockingly called names such as Half-man and Imp.

Tyrion is clever, educated and calculating, and because he is too small to be a warrior, he has embraced educating himself. Despite all this, he gets little respect from his father, who looks on him as a huge disappointment because he is deformed. While Tyrion can be very cruel to his enemies, he has showed great sympathy for other outkasts several times. He is also very fond of wine and women, mainly whores.

In the TV-series Tyrion is played by Peter Dinklage.

Hodor!

-Hodor

Hodor is a mentally handicapped servant of House Stark. He is only capable of saying one word, hodor, and since no one knows his real name, this is also what people call him. He is very large and strong, and though he is simple minded, he is very gentle and loyal to the Starks. When Bran Stark gets paralyzed, Hodor aids his mobility.

Tyrion Lannister is notoriously known for his love for whores, so the prostitutes in Winterfell knew he would pay them a visit.

The Imp is one of the many nicknames of Tyrion Lannister, who is a dwarf. Arya is obviously very exited to see him, since she hasn’t seen very many dwarves in her life.

To be strung out can mean either:

  • To be high on a drug

  • To be addicted to a drug

Talib is makes a metaphor where he is comparing his music to drugs, and where he is the drug dealer. His music is so good that it gets us, the listeners, either high on it, addicted to it, or both.

Swallow that pill may also refer back to one of the opening lines from Pharoahe Monch’s 2nd verse

He is making so much money he could helg paying down the national debt of the US. The combined debt of USA was over 17 trillion dollars in December 2013, so 50 would have to be stacking a lot of paper to fix that… at least his ambition is in the right place.

Here Domino’s/dominoes can be taken in two ways:

  • 50 knocks down every obstacle that comes his way in order to get the money; similar to knocking down domino pieces.

  • Domino’s is an international franchise pizza delivery that delivers their product to the buyer’s house; in a similar fashion 50 sells his product (narcotics) and collects the money.

The relatively unknown Norwegian producer Thomax was chosen through a poll CunninLynguists had for their fans on Facebook in 2013. He got the most votes, with over 1000, and beat far more famous producers, such as El-P and RJD2. See Kno and Deacon The Villain talk about it here:

"(Fuck did I just talk about the octomom twice in the same..." (The Alchemist – Chemical Warfare) | pending

This song was also released about the same time as this skit with Jimmy Kimmel where he also mentions octomom at 3:09. Did he have some kind of obsession with her in 2009?

"All of you belong to me" (Kid Cudi – The Ruler And The Killer) | pending

Could also be that everyone in Panem belongs to President Snow, as he is the dictator.

"When I talk you should listen" (Kid Cudi – The Ruler And The Killer) | pending

This is more likely President Snow talking (as this whole song seems to be from his point of view). When he is talking, no one else should speak, and everyone should listen, because he is the unquestioned leader.
