Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins

Peter Jackson has graciously shared two pictures of what actor Martin Freeman looks like in full hobbit attire as Bilbo Baggins. Now that we can see what he will look like, what do you think? He has my support.
I also spy a room full of dwarves!

JK Rowling Slaps Fans In The Face With 'Pottermore'

Today was the big day! JK Rowling would finally announce what Pottermore was. Well, sort of. Let's take a look at both the good and the bad of this announcement (the good is discussed towards the end). I know you couldn't see me this morning but I laughed and yelled at my computer and then walked away. That's right! This 13 year fan of the series does not appreciate being pandered to like I am a blubbering idiot who will accept every spec of Potter related news like it is a piece of gold! Let's face it folks, this announcement was anything but gold. She teased us and created such anticipation with a clever and cute countdown clock with owls that would eventually reveal to us what Pottermore was on June 23, 2011. The time has come and gone and what did she really say? Register your email (which isn't working for a lot of people) and then come back in a little over a month on July 31st. Will we get to see Pottermore in a month?? NO! A select group will have a chance …


Matt Rhodes has created a beautiful piece of fan art that he has titled 'Disneypocalypse'. The art shows Ursula, Jafar, and Maleficent battling it out in their monstrous forms as Aurora, Ariel, and Genie escape on a magic carpet. This is an eerie look at would could be if the Disney villains turned on each other to outright rule their world.
