Game of Thrones Versus Lord of The Rings

Must we really do this? I’m a huge fan of both, and I don’t like being made to choose, but YouTuber RackaRacka has brought it up and even made a video about it. Watch and judge. HAH! Not what you thought, was it? Seriously, though, for argument’s sake, which book series is better and why?

Geeky Movie Poster Sets by Thunder Doam

There’s something awesome about geeky movie poster sets.

Take A Look At These Lord of the Rings Tarot Cards!

The amazingly talented Russian artist SceithAilm designed a set of gorgeously detailed Lord of the Rings Tarot Cards that made us want to actually use them!

You’ve got to admit that even non-fans of J. R. R. Tolkien will be amazed at this feat. Ashley Yates of Torii Gardens built his own hobbit hole in his backyard. If you’re up for a heck of a lot of digging by hand and general hard work (shudder), then you can definitely make your […]

See Rivendell Built Using 200,000 LEGO Pieces

After building Hogwarts Academy using 400,000 LEGO pieces, Alice Finch clearly needed to keep feeding her geek-building side. Together with David Frank, Finch created this 5-foot x 10-foot representation of Lord Elrond’s domain on Middle Earth. Elves, dwarves, and a hobbit or two can be seen roaming the grounds since Rivendell was the place where […]

Saruman Rocks! Christopher Lee Does Metal

Who says nonagenarians can’t have fun? That’s clearly not the case for Sir Christopher Lee, the distinguished actor who has played such classic film luminaries as Count Dracula, Saruman, and Count Dooku. In this video, the 91-year-old thespian sings naughtier versions of “Jingle Bells” and “My Way.” Frank Sinatra would be proud. For other Lord […]
