the gutted house into a unique
space that has hosted local and

since that first spring in 1984.
The new executive director
Lynne Aspnes was one of the
first acts the House showcased.
"I started teaching at the
University inthe fall of 1985 and
I was looking for a place to do a

It feels like it was just yesterday,

The House occupies a unique
niche within the Ann Arbor
music scene. In addition to
concerts, the House hosts

'Books are far losers.'
You don't need the
books to love GoT '

ByDREWMARON
DailyArts Writer
When I tell people I'm a
huge "Game of Thrones,"
fan, they usually ask the
same question: "So you read
the books, then?" Instead of
sheepishly denying that I've
yet to read the mammoth
sized opus that is George R.
R. Martin's "A Song of Ice
and Fire," I proudly admit the
truth: "No, I haven't read the
books and won't do so until
the series is over."
I love television. I also love
reading and literature. Over
the summer, I read upwards of
30 books and graphic novels.
And not one of them "A Song of
Ice And Fire." Sure, every time
I travelled to a bookstore, I'd
find my hand floating over an
unsold paperback of "Game of
Thrones." 'Go ahead," I'd tell
myself, "just do it, already!"
So now I finally want to be
out with the damn thing: I've
had every opportunity to read
the books of "A Song of Ice
and Fire" and, until the show
is over, shall refuse to open a
single page.
Why?
There are a number of usual
reasons' I list off. There's the
"Godfather" excuse: "you love
The Godfather film, right?
So why not*read the original
book by Mario Puzo." The
book "The Godfather" is
frequently cited as one of the
best crime novels of the 20th
century and the movie would
not exist without it ... but
Santino Corleone's horse-like
appendage is also a recurring
motif.
I love reading. It's why I'm

is a universal tool. However,
