    This is the 'Hobbit House', an outbuilding designed by architect Peter Archer for a lifelong J.R.R. Tolkien fan as a place to store the collection of Middle Earth memorabilia he's accumulated over the past 30 years. Wow, having the money to build your own little themed museum ... / Continue →

    Because it was only a matter of time with all the Middle Earth mania sweeping the country, New Zealand has just opened a Hobbit themed Green Dragon pub near Matamata. I bet it'll be successful. Hell, I'd drink there. "And get kicked out." That's what you think! 86 me, I da... / Continue →

    Ever dreamed of owning a hobbit hole playhouse where you can read nudey magazines and guzzle beers away from the prying eye of Sauron? Well you're in luck, all thanks to the Hobbit Hole Playhouse from Wooden Wonders. Maybe Gandalf will even pop in for a smoke! No, no he won'... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Kris went and created an interactive map of Middle Earth from the Lord of the Rings universe (with labels available in English AND Elvish). Good lookin', Kris. You know, for some reason I always thought Mordor was north and not south. Color me embarrassed! ... / Continue →
