  1. Send A Message From Game Of Thrones‘ King’s Landing Thanks To These Postcards From Fictional Places

    That bloodstain, tho.

    I would personally opt out of traveling to some of these places, but that doesn't mean I'm not a fan of these postcards from fictional locales.

  4. Keeping Score: How Soundtracks Evoke Person, Place, and Connection in a Story

    Not that long ago, in a galaxy... well, it was in this galaxy, but it was a while ago now, fourteen-year-old me received a really awesome present: the Star Wars Trilogy Original Soundtrack Anthology, a four-CD box set that came with a booklet in which each track was described in terms of instrumentation, themes, what was going on in the movies during that track, and the composer's intentions for each track.

  5. Texas School Suspends 9-Year Old for Threatening to Make Classmate Disappear With the One Ring

    There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.

    The boy's father assured officials that his son lacks the magical power to back up his statements. "He's a total squib."

  6. “I am No Man” Doesn’t Cut It: The Story of Eowyn

    And when you're done reading this, go Google Haleth, daughter of Haldad.

    There are many things I love about the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings film adaptations. The attention to detail, the shout outs to uber nerds with Silmarillion refs, the way Legolas jumps up on that horse in The Two Towers.

  7. Real-Life Legolas Debunks Hollywood Techniques With Historically Accurate Master Archery

    Your elf eyes won't see his arrow coming.

    I call him a real-life Legolas, but as the "fastest archer alive," Lars Andersen is reportedly capabale of firing three arrows in 0.6 second—which makes him faster than Legolas. In this video, he puts those hard-earned skills (which he polished while LARPing, of course) to use recreating the techniques he picked up from old manuscripts, while in the process debunking some of the classic Hollywood myths about archery.

  9. The Silmarillion Recaps: Of Jerk Elves and Really Shiny Jewels

    Part 1

    I’m going to admit it up front: I love J.R.R. Tolkien’s work. I’m particularly fond of Middle Earth but my favorite book is not The Lord of The Rings. It’s The Silmarillion. I know, I know, that dry historical tome that reads like a bible? YES. That one. I love it. It is epic and dark and lyrical and poetic. It’s also kind of banana pants.

  10. Smart Ring Relays Phone Notifications, Absolutely Does Not Rule Them All

    Keep it secret, keep it safe.

    Smart watches seem kinda dumb to me (though less dumb than Google Glass on the scale of things). But smart rings? I'm... actually kind of into it. I don't even wear rings. But hey, maybe I don't want to have my phone out and visible to know if that email came in or that celebrity retweeted me or if my friend is ever going to text me that address.
