The Shire is now home to sheep

November 16, 2010


The New Zealand location that the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy used as the site of Hobbiton was never fully demolished, and now the cute little sod homes have cute little new tenants. Basically Bilbo’s house has become a sheepfold / petting zoo. More pics here. I like this.

Leonard Nimoy’s Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

December 25, 2009

Remember all those years when Xmas day meant going to see Lord of the Rings after dinner? Here’s a little throwback to that time. It involves Leonard Nimoy with the Spock haircut and a gaggle of girls in neon sweatshirts wearing the Spock ears and I don’t understand what it is at all, but damn if I’m not gonna be singing it for days now.

Merry Xmas if you lean that way; enjoy your Chinese food if you don’t. I’ll be doing both.

Find your Hobbit name.

Name generators are how the Feds figure out who’s using what browser. They associate your name with your IP address, in a way that is fun and makes you feel like you are in a moovie!

Also, try “George Bush”.
