    When it comes to picking a good beer, there are only three factors to consider: taste, alcohol content, and price. I'm kidding, just buy the shit with the coolest bottle design. And now BevLink and Fish Brewing have teamed up to take advantage of the fact that people really w... / Continue →

    You see this house? British couple Charlie Hague and Megan Williams built it with their own four hands. And now it's set to be demolished because they didn't bother getting any permits for the thing. Also, because the building "harms the character and appearance of the count... / Continue →

    This is the entirety of The Hobbit printed out on a single page as a decorative poster. It's available from Spineless Classics, and they have a ton of other single page book posters available too if Hobbits aren't your thing. The Secret Garden? Yep. Harry Potter And The Phi... / Continue →

    This is a video of competitive eater Jamie "The Bear" McDonald pounding all 11 items on Denny's Hobbit themed menu in twenty minutes. Impressive, but I could do have done it in eighteen. Plus another Grand Slam Breakfast. ...Jamie consumed about 156 ounces (9.75 pounds) of... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted Dwarf helmet and beard made by DeviantARTist SadDaysCrochet (similar in fashion to these ones we saw before). Crocheted is a weird looking word, isn't it? I had to double and triple check to make sure I wasn't saying crotched. Because a crotched helmet ... / Continue →

    This is some stranger's full-back tattoo based on an old Lord of the Rings poster. I think it's a dude, but there's really no telling from just this one picture. No lie, one time I was looking at this chick's butt but when she turned around it was actually a dude with long ha... / Continue →

    This is a $100 One Ring replica created by WETA Workshop and available from ThinkGeek. Unfortunately, they're not going to be back in stock until late February, so you can forget about Christmas listing one. But when they are available you can also get a sterling silver Chain... / Continue →

    This is a shot by Flickr users Matt & Kristy from Dragon*Con featuring a lovely lady showing off her map of Middle Earth dress and matching clutch. Are you surprised I know what a clutch is? ME TOO. *eying picture* I don't know, she seems to have a sort of Disney princess a... / Continue →

    This is shot from some bookstore that decided to pay an employee to stack a bunch of Hobbit/LOTR boxed sets into Barad-Dûr. It kind of looks like a safety hazard to me though, which is why I have every intention of pulling one from the bottom of the tower, getting buried under... / Continue →

    PROTIP: You can wear toe socks with flip flops. This is a pair of $10 hobbit feet socks from J!NX. At first I thought they were just squiggly pattern socks, but apparently that's supposed to be hair. You learn something new every day. Yesterday I learned not to write, 'EAT ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jeremy 'Balloon Man' Telford recreating a corner of Bilbo Baggins' hobbit hole Bag End out of 2,600 balloons over the span of three days. He does a good job. Sure if I had been involved it would have been way more detailed, but I wasn't invited to particip... / Continue →

    This is the giant Gollum statue installed in Wellington Airport in New Zealand by special effects maker Weta Workshop to remind everyone that's where they shoot the Hobbit movies. It's pretty terrifying. Not sure I could comfortably enjoy a Cinnabon with that staring at me. ... / Continue →

    The New Zealand mint is set to release sets of The Hobbit themed coins and stamps to celebrate...I dunno, making money off all the fans who will buy them. Suckers! The gold coins cost $3,700 ($11,000 for the three coin set), the silver 8 coin set costs $890, and the doodoo br... / Continue →

    These are $20 'Plush Halfling Slippers' (because why pay licensing fees if you don't have to?) from ThinkGeek. They're the perfect compliment to the rest of your hobbit costume. Don't have a hobbit costume? Me neither. I do wish I was smoking a pipe in the park like the guy... / Continue →

    Inb4 damn Gandalf, is that how you legal battle? The Hobbit Pub, a small English drinking establishment that's been in business over 20 years with Middle Earth themed fare, was threatened by the Saul Zaentz Company (pronounced Sauron) to change its name, pay annual licensing f... / Continue →

    Minas Tirith, the City of Kings from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings trilogy is painstakingly being recreated using matchsticks by wood-loving Patrick Acton. The project started in March, 2007, and Patrick expects to be completed by late 2010. Good looking, Pat, say -- min... / Continue →

    This is a short stop-motion video of Bruce Lee and Iron Man duking it out. Now I don't want to ruin it for you, but I will say there are hobbits involved. Intrigued? Choose your own adventure! If you decide to watch the movie, turn to page 68, if you decide not to watch, tu... / Continue →

    That's right folks, that's a freaking cake right there -- the city of Minas Tirith in all it's fondant-y glory. Wow. Now I'm confident I speak for all of us when I say 'my God would I lay siege to that city -- with a fork!' Am I right? "Thou shall not pass....on seconds!" ... / Continue →

    Let's be honest, the Hobbit houses from Lord of the Rings were awesome and we all wanted one. Maybe not to live in all the time, but at least as a vacation home or secret get-away from a nagging spouse. Well now is the time to build your own low impact woodland home. You are... / Continue →
