"They eviscerated the book by making it an action movie for young people aged 15 to 25, and it seems that The Hobbit will be the same kind of film. Tolkien has become a monster, devoured by his own popularity and absorbed into the absurdity of our time. The chasm between the beauty and seriousness of the work, and what it has become, has overwhelmed me. The commercialization has reduced the aesthetic and philosophical impact of the creation to nothing."

Christopher Tolkien first ever press interview. I really hate trying to talk to people about Tolkien, because most of them have been ruined by the films and will never enjoy the wonder of the literature.

"If we don't speak out about it, then we are part of the problem - because we are contributing to a culture that normalizes this. And by normalizing something, it becomes invisible as a problem. So, yes, we hold up these high-profile cases to say "these are bad guys" and "we are good guys", and I actually think that we are all a little bad when we don't speak out."

A card game to pay anywhere! I love portable games.

Redohho, we are far from the sacred places of our grandfathers. Far from the bones of our people. But I ask on this day of wonder and uncertainty, that the wisdom of my fathers find me and help me understand my place in tomorrow.

Story we are told: Depression is a chemical imbalance - just like diabetes!

Okay then. How many people have have their serotonin levels checked before being force-fed an SSRI? Approximately zero, because the serotonin story is a fraud and a scam designed to make the pharmaceutical/psychiatric industry rake in billions of dollars per year. Meanwhile, countless people suffer daily as zombies or worse.

The US is the only nation in the world where you can advertise drugs to people. People go through the McPsychologist drive thru and get their quick fix magic pill.

I'm really into the idea of portable, small games you can carry in your pocket or backpack, and bring anywhere. This embodies that perfectly - you don't even need a table!
