I'll put this here, rather than start a new thread, but this is extremely cool. I know that some Tolkien scholars criticize Colbert, but I don't think that anyone does more to bring arcane Tolkien knowledge to the masses. And in this case, connecting Tolkien to the most current popular music.

I'm pretty sure that the sentence "Some X criticize Y" is true for any values of X and Y. ;)

Setting that aside, I hope you watched the video. It is very cool.

I watched this a few days ago and I loved it. I miss this side of Stephen.

OMG. Breathtaking.

Tom's comment: "He is such a total nerd. Which is great for all of us."

Could probably apply that to Tolkien in general. Unless *looking around with a glower and clenching hands* you have some kind of problem with the term "nerd."
