The Lord of the Rings

  1. There Are Two Competing Tolkien Documentaries Currently in the Works

    What's the Elvish word for "market oversaturation?"

    Two different companies are creating documentaries about author J.R.R. Tolkien's life. One focuses on his early years and the other on his relationship with fellow author C.S. Lewis.

  2. Gondor Calls For Neighs: Horse Versions of LOTR Characters and Other Geeky Favorites

    Muster the Rohirrim!

    Silverglass19 (aka Liz) on Deviantart is really, really good at drawing ponies. I'm not talking MLP style, either, though those also take a lot of skill most of us don't have -- I mean anatomically correct horses you feel like you could totally ride. Not that the heir to Isildur would let you just jump on his back all willy nilly, though. He would totally show you the meaning of "hell no" if you tried to pull that stunt.

  3. MinutePhysics Proves Legolas and His Dreamy Eyes Are Full of LIES

    Maybe ask for a recount on those kill numbers, Gimli.

    Could Legolas really see well enough to count horsemen and distinguish their heights at a distance of over 17 miles? Unless his eyes are just for decoration—which, to be fair, they're great at—and he uses magic to see, the answer from your friend physics is a big fat, "Nope." MinutePhysics shows why.

  5. These Geeky LEGO Flower Pots Will Help You Grow A Green Thumb

    Yub nub, plants. I am your only hope.

    If you're like me, keeping another living thing alive is a crippling amount of responsibility. But wouldn't everyone remember to water their plants more often if they were housed in Jin Kai's beautiful LEGO Star Wars and flowerpots? A bonsai tree, I would probably kill. But an Ent? Not on your life.

  6. Why Geeks Do What Geeks Do

    That is how the geek do.

    The morning after the Isla Vista shootings, I was on Gchat with Sam, my fellow weekend editor. I was supposed to be working, but I was having trouble getting to it. I’d seen people on Twitter looking for friends who lived near the shooting (and who weren’t returning their calls), and the shooter’s disturbing screed was still up on YouTube. I watched as much as I could stomach (not much). Sam and I sat together, a few thousand miles apart, sharing the silence of a blank chat field.

  7. 7-Foot-Tall Uruk-Hai Have to Go Clothes Shopping Too, You Know

    One does not simply walk into Grocerystore.

    Or, you know, 7-foot-tall guys who make-up artist Rossanne Puck Aafjes dresses up to look like Uruk-Hai do, anyway. But hey, anything that keeps our dear friend Grishnákh here away from the plains of Rohan, right?

    Awwwwww

    Wendy McKee has been getting a lot of attention lately for her kitty cosplay and does this surprise us? Not in the least. “I would probably be considered a crazy cat lady,” she told TODAY.com. “My house seems to be the place that people drop off cats that they don’t want anymore.”

  9. Watch This Awesome Nerd Medley, The Dark Game of Hobbit Knight Thrones

    "You got your Westeros in my Middle Earth!" "You got your Middle Earth in my Gotham!"

    What do Game of ThronesThe Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight trilogy all have in common? Unbearable nerd sadness. Oh, and some of the songs in each movie have chord progressions that work really well together. Just ask violinist Jason Yang, and also watch this rad video.
