The Lord of the Rings

  1. Ian McKellan Teaches Cookie Monster About Self Control By Presenting Him With THE RING OF SAURON ITSELF

    One cookie to rule them all.

    Ah, yes, I remember that passage of The Two Towers well. You know, the one where Cookie Monster is all, "Not were Minas Tirith falling in ruin and me alone could save her, so, using weapon of Dark Lord for good and glory. Me not wish for such triumphs, Frodo son of Drogo.” and then Frodo is like "Okay great, but can I have my chocolate chip cookies back?" and then Cookie Monster roars "NO NEVER, MINE ME OWN ME PRECIOUS OM NOMN NOM NOM," and then Sam cries a bunch.

  3. Eye of Sauron Installation in Russia Halted Because the World Is Joyless and/or Orthodox Church Criticism

    ♪ We could've had it aaaaaaaaaaaaaall ♪

    I may be only a moderate Lord of the Rings/Tolkien fan, but I am a massive "Eye of Sauron hovering ominously over Moscow" fan. The Orthodox Church of Russia doesn't quite see... eye to eye with me on that one, and they're ruining it for everyone.

  7. Everything That Happens In The Tolkien Universe After The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    First things first: Yes, even before Peter Jackson sat down to make the film, we knew what would happen after The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings, all 480,000-plus words of it, was already a fairly excessive sequel to one children’s book. But if you know anything at all about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, it won’t surprise you that it doesn’t end there.

  9. Air New Zealand Has Done Another Cameo-Filled, LotR-Themed Safety Briefing

    Dean O'Gorman, why are you wearing a seatbelt you are on a horse.

  14. According to Game Developers, There Are No Pumpkins in Middle-Earth

    Halloween is ruined! *sobs*

    Some good news for that small subsection of people who wish hobbits were real, but who also get real sick of the annual invasion of gourd-based decoration every autumn: if you lived in Middle-Earth, you would be safe from the all seeing eye of the pumpkin spice, because pumpkins don't exist there. Okay, but they must have them in Valinor, right? Otherwise what's the point of even going?

  19. Sophie Turner Talks About How Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark Is Kind of Like Gollum

    Lemon cakes are kind of like fish, right?

    Okay, nerd-quiz time: if you were going to start drawing comparisons between Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire, who would be Sansa? After all, there are only three major female characters in the whole trilogy. Leave it to Game of Thrones actor and number one Sansa Stark fan Sophie Turner to come up with a really twisted and awesome idea.
