“I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure…”
The sun’s not the only thing that rises, if you know what I mean.
One couple to rule them all.
Now that’s what I’m Tolkien about.
One coffee cup to rule them all!
It was love at first write.
Sure, we like to Shire. Sorry, but we’ve never read or seen anything related to Lord of the Rings.
Excuse me while I get all the things.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug made less in its opening weekend than the first Hobbit movie, but it’s still one of the most successful box office debuts for a movie longer than 160 minutes.
Battle like a wizard, drink like a dwarf, live like a hobbit.
The Dwarves are Jewish? Mazel tov!
Really, put down that book NOW.
The Oscar-winning director offers up sweet battle scenes, green screen pics, and cool details on how these epic movies get made. There are three Thorins, btw.
It’s not always jocks vs. nerds.
Plus the Soup Nazi takes on the gun lobby, a brilliantly insane McDonald’s promo, and Fraggle Rock’s bizarre obsession with death.

Is also painfully adorable. I hope her fears prove unfounded and that her character is welcomed into the Tolkien lexicon.
Peter Jackson posted his first video blog giving a sneak peak behind the scenes of The Hobbit. It’ll make the hair on your feet stand on end. Nerds, commence to manipulating your Bilbos!

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin recently crafted an elaborate eight course menu inspired by the Lord of the Rings films, going so far as to recreate Middle Earth dishes such as lembas bread and coney stew.
