On this day in 1892, J. R. R. Tolkien was born. Bikini-clad Helen invites you to join in the celebration as she displays this handmade Hobbit candle. Although I'm willing to bet that at least a few blog readers have only just noticed the candle she's holding....
Dennis has started (but not finished) a Daria/Lord of the Rings crossover called Shadows of a Timeless Song. Is it pitchforking time? But of course! First, though, some fandom news:
- There's only one week left to nominate works for the Daria Fanworks Awards! Were there any fanfics or fanart that you really enjoyed? Now's your chance to make sure they get recognized!
- The SFMB is having technical difficulties. Deref and Gamer are working on it, though!
- brnleague99 invites you to play a game for the paranormally inclined. How many people are in the picture?
- What did you think was the worst music of 2010? Share your thoughts in Wouter's thread.
