Peace, Tumblr bros! See ya in November.



I can’t believe this is what our president and vice president spend their time on. We’re in 15 trillion dollars of debt, and millions of people are homeless, and abortion is still legal, and instead of signing bills to fix these things our president is doing this. Well I’m glad you’re having fun, you fucking bitch. Fuck the United States. /rant

i cant believe hundreds of people took this post seriously

Addressing some common concerns with The Hobbit film.

A lot of folks are concerned that Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit will lose the whimsy and fun of the original story in favor of a darker tone that focuses on stories and subplots that don’t directly relate to the novel’s plot. To them I say this: The Hobbit has the feel of a fairy tale, and in some ways it most definitely is, but it’s also part of a larger, grander, and more complex narrative. It’s about Bilbo Baggins discovering that he isn’t a wholly timid and simple create, yes; it’s about finding treasure and slaying a dragon, yes. But it’s also about Gandalf preparing for war with Sauron; it’s also about the recovery of the Ring; it’s also about the first battles fought over the recovery of that object. So yes, there’s a great deal of whimsy in The Hobbit, and out of context it is a relatively lighthearted tale. But taking Tolkien’s works out of context is considerably less rewarding than reading them as a part of a larger universe, in my opinion anyway. Reading The Lord of the Rings knowing about the fall of Númenor and Sauron’s nefarious roots makes the experience that much more multidimensional and rich. 

I accept Jackson’s films as what they are—excellent movies striving to adapt books which are inherently next to impossible to adapt. And I look forward to The Hobbit films, for even if they lose some of the tone of the novel, I hope that they will make up for it by providing a clearer picture of the events of the War of the Ring for those of us who don’t have the time nor desire to peruse Tolkien’s notes.
