    This is the five-foot Barad-dûr fire pit created by ImagineMetalArt. It's for sale on Etsy for $690 if you're interested. I like the dragon flying around the bottom, I thought that was a nice touch. Still, you know what the first thing I think is everytime I see something li... / Continue →

    This is Brendan M and his 1:65 scale 75,000 LEGO Tower Of Orthanc (previously: this six foot version and LEGO's official Orthanc playset). Brendan looks sweaty but I'm pretty sure that's just a print on his shirt. He spent over a year building the 8-foot 9-inch tower, the rea... / Continue →

    This is a visual comparison of the approximately 1,350-mile (~2,172 km) trek Sam and Frodo traveled from Hobbiton to Mount Doom with the equivalent distances on maps of the United States and Europe. In the US, the same 1,350-mile journey would take you from Los Angeles to Aust... / Continue →

    This is the Witch-King of Angmar fire pit welded together out of an old propane tank and scrap metal by Alex Dodson of Burned By Design. That crown though -- my God. It looks like the perfect fire pit for anybody who's ever dreamed of being gored and on fire at the same time.... / Continue →

    This is some of the work by A+ handwriter Daniel Reeve, who is responsible for all the calligraphy seen in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films. Such hand-eye coordination. My writing looks like chicken-scratch. Just kidding, my writing looks like a computer print-out beca... / Continue →

    Fake, the shadows are all wrong! You can tell it's fake because there's no horribly misspelled name on the cup. Nice try, Starbucks marketing. This is the Starbucks cup some random customer allegedly decorated with a detailed map of Middle Earth. Did he draw it all from me... / Continue →

    This is a video detailing the build of a hobbit-hole litter box and Barad-dûr/Eye of Sauron cat-scratching tower for crazed Tolkien fan Misha and his cats Frodo and Sam (yes, seriously -- he even puts Frodo in a bag and calls him Frodo Baggins). Man, my cats would DESTROY that... / Continue →

    This is the $500 One Ring Firepit made and sold by Etsy shop BohemianAlpDesigns. It's black, holds burning wood, and has the same inscription as the One Ring. You know what I love most about firepits? Burning things. Incriminating evidence, pictures of ex-girlfriends, the b... / Continue →

    This is a very short video of Sir Ian McKellan encouraging kids outside a school library to study hard for their exams. Because, if you don't, SPOILER: YOU SHALL NOT PASS. That's what he says. It's cute because that's what he says to the Balrog in Lord of the Rings. That's ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy constantly scaring/harassing his girlfriend with different Lord of the Rings quotes. Amazingly, somehow she didn't leave him before he was able to make this video. Also, for a guy who can remember every line from Lord of the Rings, it's a little su... / Continue →

    When it comes to picking a good beer, there are only three factors to consider: taste, alcohol content, and price. I'm kidding, just buy the shit with the coolest bottle design. And now BevLink and Fish Brewing have teamed up to take advantage of the fact that people really w... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy dressed up and make-upped to look like a member of the advanced orc breed Urak-Hai from Lord of the Rings. Then he goes grocery shopping. He gets a bunch of funny looks. Although not nearly as many as I got when I went shopping this afternoon, which ... / Continue →

    Note: Solid F-bomb at 0:19. Crank up the volume! This is a short video of a guy cutting down a massive tree limb when the Ent it belongs to decides enough is enough and wacks him off his ladder. Dude survived the fall fine though, so you don't have to feel bad about having j... / Continue →

    This is Bilbo's Bath and Shire Gel. Shire, get it? If you don't you might be having a stroke. The ironic thing about this is that Hobbits rarely bathe. They all smell like a shit in the sun on the hottest day of summer. Fact: Gandalf actually faked his death with the Balro... / Continue →

    This is the interactive map of Middle Earth created as part of the Lord of the Rings Project. You can highlight all sorts of options like roads, towns, events -- even the paths the characters took in the books (I have Frodo and Sam's path highlighted in the screenshot above). ... / Continue →

    This is a series of women dressed as male characters from the Hobbit as photographed by Russian artist Alexander Turchanin. They're all really good, plus strangely erotic. Jk jk, there's nothing strange about it, they're ONLY erotic. Thankfully, they didn't include a Gollum ... / Continue →

    This is a Google Maps view of Geldrop (links to actual Google Map), a Netherlands town with streets named after characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's books. WHY does it have streets named after J.R.R. Tolkien characters? No clue. Plus it's Friday afternoon on Valentine's Day so I... / Continue →
