    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 →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who wrote Peter Jackson after watching Lord of the Rings and demanded a Director's Cut with way more boobs, Middle Earth is basically all dudes. There are SOME chicks, just not very many. Who knows, maybe their genetics work different wh... / Continue →

    This is a series of memorable scenes from the Lord of the Rings trilogy imagined in a stained glass style by DeviantARTist breathing2004 (aka Jian Guo). They're all beautifully done, and if I found a magic lamp right now I'd probably use a wish to live inside one of them. The... / Continue →

    This is gallery of Middle Earth's Moria faithfully recreated to scale in Minecraft. No clue how long it took, how many people it took, or what they could have accomplished if they were doing something more productive, all I know is it's pretty impressive and I couldn't have do... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is a picture of the internet (high-res version HERE). Only thing is, I freaking live in the internet and it doesn't look all that familiar. I mean, where are all the naked ladies? Everybody knows the internet is at least 40% naked ladies. AND men. I just shy... / Continue →
