And you're like, wtf Wuzzy, I saw this a month ago, what even are you doing. There's nothing to teach about this malarky, charging or not.

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS 
LIKE GOOD LORD 
OLDEST FANDOMS REALLY ARE POLITEST

Fem!Ori - Katsucon 2014
Made and modelled by me
Photography by Lazy Cat Photography

I’d been dreaming about getting winter snow pictures of this cosplay since way back in May when I first started working on it for a summer convention. And while the big Katsu snowstorm made me almost a full day late for the con, I forgive it entirely for letting me take these amazing photos with Karina!! They turned out totally Erebor-tastic! Outside in the snow is the perfect place for Ori to read her favorite books and practice her aim at icicles~!

The Battle of Helm’s Deep already has its own official LEGO version, but the licensed set has nothing on this mind blowing set built by Lord of the Rings fans Rich-K and Big J.

As where the official LEGO version features 1,368 pieces, this custom job utilizes over 150,000 LEGO building blocks to recreate the classic scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novels. In addition to the staggering number of bricks used for the installation, Helm’s Deep also includes 1,700 minifgures. via io9

this makes me happy

Holy fuck

Like are you fucking kidding me, was this really necessary? Shit. Goddammit.

Elijah: Speaking of game-making, what was the name of the fake game y’all tried to get me into? Tig! Oh my god.
Billy: Tig, it was when we were filming Weathertop, and myself and Dom just started tagging each other, ya know, touching each other and going “tig! tig!” just for no reason. And then Sean came over and started doing it as well. And then we’d say “Tig tig, tig tag,” like, for no reason! And then Elijah came over and said ‘What are you guys doing?’ And we said, ‘oh, we’re playing a game called tig.’ And he says ‘oh, how do you play?’ And then we spent the next two hours making up rules.
Elijah: And trying to teach me, and of course I was getting everything wrong.
Sean: The three of us were ever frustrated that he wasn’t follwing these new rules that we were continuing to make up.
Dom: So we would play and the three of us we constantly getting it right. Every time Elijah tried a new way of tigging someone we’d say ‘No, Elijah, you can’t tig on a tog, you can’t tag on a tig, you have to do an elephant impression if you’re going to tig Billy, if Billy’s going to tig you back you have to get on your knees and take your trousers down.’
Billy: How many times Elijah, you can’t double tig a tag!
Dom: And for like 3 weeks he kept saying how much he enjoyed playing tig.
Billy: Do you remember we forgot to say it was a wind up? And it was like a year later he says ‘Why do we never play tig?’
Elijah: And they finally let the cat out of the bag. My whole world came shattering down on me when they told me that was a lie. For a whole year I believed that was a real game.
