    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 →

    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 →

    This is the 5-foot x 10-foot, 200,000 piece Middle Earth LEGO Rivendell built by Alice Finch (of 400,000-piece LEGO Hogwarts fame) and David Frank. I wish I could just shrink myself down to that size and live there. Of course, I said the same thing about my little sister's Ba... / Continue →

    This is 'Lord of the Crumbs', Sesame Street's 'Lord of the Rings' parody starring Cookie Monster. Who, as far as monsters go, isn't a very scary looking one. When I was growing up there was a REAL monster that lived in my closet. You know what color his eyes were? Dried blo... / Continue →

    This is the lifesize Gollum statue made and sold by WETA Workshop. The piece stands (crouches) 3'6" tall and makes the perfect addition to a child's bedroom. What? Kids love 'Lord of the Rings'. Just make sure to angle it so it's always staring right at their bed. Plus tel... / Continue →

    Seen here eyeballing two hunks, Galdalf the Grey demonstrates his 'You Shall Not Pass' spell on the Bow Bridge in Central Park. SPOILER: Everybody passes. One dude even casts a Harry Potter spell on him as he goes by. If there had been an actual Balrog on one end of that bri... / Continue →

    Remember that 150,000-piece LEGO Battle of Helm's Deep that was nearing completion? Well it's finally crossed the finish line, and this is it. With over 1,700 minifigs alone, it's sure to be one of LEGO's most expensive sets ever offered. *whispering* Oh, they're not actual... / Continue →

    This is a series of digital paintings by Russian artist SceithAilm imagining the Lord of the Rings characters as tarot cards. She did a really amazing job with all of them. You ever had a tarot card reading performed before? I haven't, but I've always wanted to. Of course a... / Continue →

    Pedro from Brazil sent me this picture of his friend Aguirre's One Ring inscription tattoo. Pretty cool, right? Yeah, except for the tattoo artist inked it upside-down and apparently everybody failed to notice until the whole piece was complete. How does that even happen? N... / Continue →

    You know what your dining room table is missing? Hopefully not a leg. Hopefully it's just missing some $15 - $18 Lord of the Rings salt and pepper shakers. Thankfully, our prayers have been answered. Well maybe yours at least, I prayed for a missile launcher for an arm and ... / Continue →

    1,700 minifigs! This is the 150,000-piece LEGO recreation of the Battle of Helm's Deep from Lord of the Rings. It was built by Rich-K & Big J and contains over 1,700 minifigs, which is probably more minifigs than I could eat in my lifetime, but believe me, I'm still going to ... / Continue →

    This is the guitar that's been customized via Sharpie with some legit looking Lord Of The Rings graphics by 16-year old artist Vivian Xiao. Sixteen! I wasn't making anything at sixteen but an ass out of myself and $2.38 an hour bussing tables at Outback Steakhouse. Vivian sp... / Continue →

    LEGO has just announced the July release of a 2,359-piece Tower of Orthanc playset. The Tower of Orthanc is not to be confused with Barad-dûr, which is the tower with the Eye of Sauron peeking around on top. So yeah, that's why there's no eye. I'm sure you already knew that ... / Continue →

    Sure Minas Tirith didn't have a moat, but come on -- this is a sandcastle. A sandcastle without a moat is like a hotdog bun with no hotdog -- it isn't right. And it's even more wrong when you decide to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in it. Built by DeviantARTist Buc... / Continue →

    Because there are Hobbit fans out there with more money than they know what to do with, Weta Workshop is releasing $9,900 replicas of the Orcrist 'goblin cleaver' of Thorin Oakenshield. A lot of money, I know, but from the product description it sounds worth every penny. Or... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday and the internet is drying up drier than the furball I found behind the couch when I was vacuuming (plus it was like, glued to the carpet and I had to loosen it with a bare toe -- thanks for that, Shitty Bill!), here's Gandalf's problem solving flowchart. S... / Continue →

    Hey so I puked on my feet in the shower this morning so if I disappear at any point today it's probably because I went to go do it again. Call an ambulance if you don't hear from me but make up a fake name and do NOT let them take me to the hospital because I don't have the mo... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted Dwarf helmet and beard made by DeviantARTist SadDaysCrochet (similar in fashion to these ones we saw before). Crocheted is a weird looking word, isn't it? I had to double and triple check to make sure I wasn't saying crotched. Because a crotched helmet ... / Continue →
