  1. The Last Hobbit Trailer Is Finally Here And Oh No Everything’s on Fire

    Including MY HEART

    All of those intense close-up teaser posters were leading up to this moment, and boy is it dramatic. Hella orcs! Thranduil being snippy! Dwarf feelings all up in the everywhere! Possibly some more Gandalf and Galadriel ones, too! It's everything we could have ever wanted.

    eye candy

    I've been ogling Craig Drake's work for a while now and when I saw he was doing a solo show, I lamented not having $200 for his work featuring Buffy...on wood! Then I found out there were prints. But they were already sold out (#nerdworldproblems). However, thanks to "The Internet," I can look at his gorgeous images until my heart is content. Take a look at a few of his pieces featuring characters from Game of Thrones, Kill Bill, Star Wars, and more.

  4. Gandalf Branches out to Blocking New York City Pedestrian Bridges

    There And Back Again

    When I heard Improv Everywhere had a guy dressed up as Gandalf shouting "you shall not pass" at folks in Central Park, I assumed the video would make me cringe, but this Gandalf is just so good natured about absolutely nobody stopping when he asks them to that I'm actually pretty charmed.

  5. Improv Everywhere Brings LOTR to New York With Gandalf’s Infamous “You Shall Not Pass!” [Video]

    This is actually Gandalf the White, but a few days in the city made his robes all grey again.

    To the Grey Wizard of Central Park, we are all vicious balrogs who seek to unmake the Fellowship with our fiery whips of many thongs. Luckily, Improv Everywhere has given this noble Istari his moment in the spotlight as part of their "Movies in Real Life" series. Soldier on, Gandalf Greyhame. Eventually someone will heed your warning. Maybe.

  6. Watch This Woman As She Finds Out Gandalf Is Not, In Fact, Dead

    There And Back Again

    I know some people won't be able to comprehend how anyone could avoid spoilers for The Lord of the Rings. You know, considering the book has been around since the 1950s and the Peter Jackson films were about as wide-spread as you can get in the way of exposure. But look, some folks just don't discuss LOTR over second breakfast, ok? In any case, this woman's roommate knew she had know idea what was about to unfold in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, so the experience was documented and posted online for us to enjoy.

  8. I Put on My Wizard Robe and Hoodie

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    ThinkGeek says this wizard hoodie is all about Gandalf, with his Dwarf rune for G, Glamdring, and some crossed pipes, but I'm seeing less of a pointy hat and more of a pointy Magika hood. Ahh, well, I bet the hood is a great place to keep snacks anyway. For when you're done with the pipes.

  9. Watch Willie Nelson Audition for Gandalf in “The Hobbit 2” [VIDEO]

    There And Back Again

    "You can hire me and fire that Ian McKellen guy," says country music legend Willie Nelson to Peter Jackson in this audition tape. "He's a good actor, but hell, I'm Willie Nelson." He has a point there, Peej. (via: Laughing Squid) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. Mal Reynolds, Harry Potter, Totoro, and Gandalf Have Never Been Cuter Than When They Are Mice


    Mice and nerdiness are bound together in eternal partnership, if just because so many of us grew up with Redwall. So Quernus Crafts' sculptures of famous geeky characters as mice is really the perfect fit. Don't question it. Just let yourself coo at Mal Reynolds, Gandalf, Harry Potter, and Totoro as mice. None of your fellow geeks will judge you.
