Today only, Teefury is selling this t-shirt for $11. It may come back on sale later on, but then it’ll be $18 or so. 
There’s also a “Mordor is Metal” one, but I don’t find it appealing at all, so I’m not going to post an image. But just FYI.

Happy birthday, Eärendil!

100 years ago today, Tolkien created Eärendil, the spark that ignited his mythology of Middle-earth, long before he dreamed of hobbits. 

(My last name is actually Spanish for “bright star” or “morning star”, and refers to Venus, which is also the star celestial body Eärendil is supposed to be.) 

The "Title 9 Fallacy" (From Riddles in the Dark, Year 3: Postgame #1)

  • Corey Olsen: The "Title 9 Fallacy" is [when people] just count noses and say there are more men than women, and therefore Tolkien is anti-woman or sexist.
  • Dave Kale: It's fine if people want to read it and say, "I find there to be an insufficient number of women in this to hold my interest." Whatever, go ahead. But if you're making a claim about Tolkien as an author or a person based on counting characters, then...
  • Trish Lambert: That's a fallacy.

"'It all depends on what you want,' put in Merry. 'You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin — to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours — closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo.'"
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring, “A Conspiracy Unmasked”
