Leave the Flying to Gandalf! - Calisuri @ 16:25 PST

[ Gandalf Airways ]

Any Italian Ringers out there? If so, we have an airline for you! Check this out:

I'm the President of Gandalf Airlines, italian regional airlines partner of Air France and listed at Italian Stock Exchange.

When I opened my company, 2 years a go, I decided to call it "Gandalf" in order to provide it the power of a wizard.

I have seen your site and your pictures and it's really strange to see that Gandalf is not just my airlines but there is an other world related to it; of course, I knew it.

My compliments for the coming movie.

Best Regards,

Wow, now that is an airline I want to fly on. Lembas and 1420 for cross country flights? Book your flight today! [More]

Welcome Middle-earth Tours! - Calisuri @ 16:57 PST
TheOneRing.net is proud to welcome Middle-earth Tours to its online community!

\[ Middle Earth Tours \]

Now you can tour Middle-earth with the help of the best Tolkien artists and images from the upcoming movies. Pictures are reasonably sized, arranged by topic and accompanied by quotes from the books; so "tourists" can compare several artists' renditions of Gollum, Gondor, etc., with Tolkien's own descriptions. Decide for yourself which artist got it "right!" [More]

Small Tolkien Ref in last nights 'Buffy' - Calisuri @ 09:45 PST
Thanks to Diane for sending this in:

"Thought you would like to know that they made a joking reference to hobbits on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" last night.

In reference to some ugly demons of somewhat short stature and wearing monk garb, Xander describes them as "hobbits with leprosy." They didn't actually look anything like hobbits, being too tall, but I appreciated the joke anyway. "
