Home Decor Straight from Middle-Earth

If it weren't for Etsy, I might never discover delights such as the work of tiedyejedi. The avid Tolkien fan will find on this shop's page a wide array of sweet, touching, or just plain cool decorations straight from Middle-Earth. The shop owner will even translate your name into Sindarin and turn it into a beautiful print. Where has tiedyejedi been all my life? <3

    1. You are too kind! I appreciate the publicity. :)

      And as soon as my next paycheck arrives, I'll be ordering a thing or two (I'll have to limit myself to a thing or two, haha) from your wonderful shop.

This Week's Window Shopping

While I think in many cases leggings tend to get mistaken for a garment you can wear by themselves, I would make an exception for these awesome sword leggings from SOVRIN on Etsy, which I LOVE.


Also, check out this incredibly clever Dewey Decimal System pendant from thependantemporium shop on Etsy.  I want!


Last but not least, if you are a shop-happy geek like myself, you are probably already aware of this site, but if not, you should know about teefury.com, which has a different geeky T-shirt every day for $11.  If you see one you like, you have to act fast! But there are so many awesome designs, including today's, which features a quote from Vasquez in "Aliens." :)


Chain Mail Bikinis Don't Count As Armor, and Other Thoughts (Mild Spoilers)

Comics Alliance calls it "The story Disney should have been telling for the past 20 years," and while I believe Disney plays its part in a healthy mix of fairy tales for children, every little girl (and boy, for that matter) should read a comic like "Princeless." "Princeless," from Action Lab Entertainment, introduces us to Adrienne, a princess who is not interested in waiting around in her tower to be rescued. A prince even shows up at one point to do just that, and she turns him away, saying, "Don't let the dragon hit you on the way out." Love it.

As a longtime Tolkien fan, I can assure you that if you are a reasonable person who understands that books and film are two very different mediums, then you will be pleased with - and maybe even excited by - the changes that Jackson brought to the adaptation of our beloved story. The pace is ever so slightly slow in the beginning of the film (not complaining!), and this is understandable because audiences - especially those who have never read the book - need to hear quite a bit of exposition and background before the tale can proceed. Once the quest of Thorin Oakenshield's company is truly underway, however, the pace is breathtaking and there are mishaps and perils at every turn. Some of t…
