    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 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 →
