It's a very special day. It's Friday! In case this terrible, terrible song doesn't quite capture how excited we are for the weekend (we so excited), here are some memes.

Tolkien's books, however, have a fervent following that could make Stephenie Meyer jealous.

Even years after the last book in the trilogy was published in 1986, the world of Middle Earth is still seeing new films being added to its legacy.
