Sneak preview from the set of The Hobbit

Purists will cavil, but at Riddled we whole-heartedly support Peter Jackson's bold decision to reimagine hobbit architecture. Why must their culture be ossified? Why not allow them the flexibility to make room in their traditions for the influence of Isengardish methods and technologies?
Admittedly, the new concrete construction is missing a certain charm.


Purists may also be surprised by the umm earthy language that has been scripted for the characters, but with Billy Connolly playing Dáin Ironfoot, what the feck do they expect?

So Eagle Airlines operates out of Round Knob?

I hope the Department of Hobbit Security hasn't made check-in too onerous.

The Ukrainian bid for the franchise was unsuccessful.

With Samuel L. Jackson playing Nori, I look forward to the line, "I am sick and tired of these motherfucking spiders in this motherfucking forest!"

I am beginning to suspect that BBBB is making that up.

Hobbitses with homes that look like U-Store It warehouses sprinkled across an open field as if they slipped through Gawd's fingers? Sure. Why not? Hobbitses are very impressionable and quick to remodel.

"You know what they call a Big Mac in Rivendell?"

the real atrocity is that y'all did not let me know that the Verlaines had a new album coming out.

Smut Clyde said...

the Verlaines had a new album coming out.

Aren't they some Australian band?

Another Kiwi said...

Possibly, there exists a subset of poor, sad, benighted New Zild folks who did not know about the Verlaines having a new album out, as well. Those poor, no-hoper persons.

Mandos said...

What are "verlaines"? Sounds gross.

Mandos has not seen the fnords, err Teh Verlaines?

Mandos said...

I waited for the music to start but all I heard were some whiny noises.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Poor Mandos.


Bunny just wanted some of that beer.

The Verlaines. God I hate family bands. Sure, Timmy Verlaine can sing, but isn't Buffy Verlaine embarrassed to be credited with "tambourine and backing vocals"? And having your mom in your band is NOT COOL.

tigris said...

Didn't the Verlaines do the soundtrack for Rimbaud: Premier Sang?

Hey! Randy Verlaine told "Boyfriend" magazine "Mom is like the Mom of the band, making sure we get enough to eat, making us practice and only buying from reputable drug dealers"

What the hell is caviling? Anyway-I'M DOING IT!!!

vacuumslayer said...

Anyway, I'm past all this and rating for Mushroom Houses.

You've never met my mom.


Hey, when is DK-W gonna sniff out this thread?

I wonder if there's a Mother's Day card for that...

"Mom is like the Mom of the band, making sure we get enough to eat,

Famously, an East Coast punk band found their name when one's mother fed them and proclaimed them Nervous Eaters.
