    “ME PRECIOUS!”: Cookie Monster Seeks The Dessert Of Power in Lord of the Crumbs

    Sure, Sesame Street played a little fast and loose with the plot of Tolkien's beloved trilogy for this adorable parody, making it less about a terrible ring of powerful evil and more about a recipe for a delicious cookie that needs to be baked in the "fires of Mount Crumb." But hey, details, right?

    Captain Picard Married by Gandalf, No Wedding Will Ever Compare

    Sir Patrick Stewart is one of our favorite people – how can you not love an anti-domestic violence advocate who once piloted the Starship Enterprise? That being said, we’re incredibly happy that the actor has boldly gone where so many have gone before: down the aisle!

    Get Your First Glimpse of Benedragon Cumbersmaug in New Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Teaser Trailer

    Feel like you're missing out on all the trailer excitement because you don't play video games or care about E3? Let's hope you like dwarves, then, because director Peter Jackson's got thirteen of them to throw your way, along with a whole forest worth of other mythical Tolkien creatures. The first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the upcoming sequel to last year's An Unexpected Journey, just dropped and look pretty dang neat. You know, if you like dwarves. If not, you'll be pleased to know that there's also a dragon this time who sounds like Sherlock Holmes, and he really enjoys killing dwarves. Either way, there's something for everybody.

    Watch LEGO Voldemort and LEGO Gandalf Go At It in Wand to Staff Combat [Video]

    While sometimes we long for the days when LEGO sets didn't always tie in to popular franchises and children had to use their imaginations to play with them, we're generally in favor of themed sets -- after all, having LEGO-fied versions of your favorite heroes and villains pretty much rocks. The creators of Brotherhood Workshop must agree, because their YouTube channel is filled with amusing stop motion LEGO videos that feature characters from Lord of the Rings and, most recently, Harry Potter.

    Is This Lord of the Rings Periodic Table The Geekiest Thing Ever Done?

    As you might imagine, we get sent a lot of geeky things here at the site, but since I started writing for Geekosystem, I don't think I've seen anything as geeky as this. It's The Periodic Table of Middle-Earth, which breaks down the characters from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit into classification by race. It even lists dates of birth and death. This is next-level geekdom at its finest.

    A 10-Year-Old Vendor’s Adorable Lord of the Rings Etsy Shop

    Etsy is always a fairly amusing place in which to get lost. One can find tasteful works of art, turn themselves into Nicolas Cage, or buy serial killer jewelry if they're so inclined. Every now and then, you come across something endearing and adorable (assuming, that is, you don't find Jeffrey Dahmer earrings endearing). Case in point, Etsy's The Shire General Store, a shop run by a 10-year-old that sells custom-made clay Lord of the Rings figurines.

    Amazing 1:1 Scale Replica of Moria Built in Minecraft

    When we think of the Mines of Moria, we think of either Gimli's crib or the place where Gandalf got crunk with the Balrog. But when Redditor and Minecraft enthusiast Tigerballs07 saw the Mines of Moria in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, all he saw was virtual 1-cubic-meter blocks. For roughly a year, Tigerballs07 and a team of over 40 volunteers worked to create a 1:1 scale replica of Middle Earth's Mines of Moria. Read on for a little more about this tremendous project, gallery included!

    Eye of Sauron Cake Looks Delicious, Always Watching

    Yet another awesome pastry to give you cake envy. This time, we have an Eye of Sauron cake, complete with Elvish writing. Though this cake should satisfy any Lord of the Rings viewing party (which would, roughly, last weeks) sees all, we all know that sometimes red frosting tastes terrible, so it might not see its way into your stomach after that initial taste. Also, it's a giant fiery eye.

    The 14 Geekiest Beers the Free Market Has to Offer

    The history of beer is almost as old as human history, and it would be quite true to say that our love affair with the stuff has only grown with modern brewing practices. Given beer's pervasive place in human history, it's not surprising that the geeky pastimes of drinkers would eventually rub off on the beers themselves. The result is a veritable cornucopia of nerdy beers, from Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and a few others that fit in quite nicely with your nerdy lifestyle. Like Pizza Beer -- it's more efficient than eating both separately! So sit back, crack open a cold one, and enjoy this astounding and some times mouthwatering collection.
