Dear Ringers and Tolkienites,
I’ve just found out through his owner’s Facebook page that Blanco, better known to all of us as Shadowfax, has passed away. He became very ill in late March and after two weeks at a veterinary hospital for horses, he was finally put to sleep. Cynthia, his owner, who loved him dearly, did all she could and was with him when he went. She is in a very difficult place now, having lost her good friend and having to pay for his medical bills.
I think it’s safe to say that the Tolkien community has been touched by this beautiful boy. He was everything we imagined Shadowfax to be, and a wonderful friend to Cynthia. She has set up a fundraiser to help pay for his treatment bills, as she’s having trouble financially dealing with other issues. If you have anything to spare, please donate to her, out of love and memory for this beautiful horse, who will live on forever in our hearts.
Rest Easy, Blanco. Thank You. ♥
WHERE IS LOLLAND!!!! LOLLAND IS FUCKING BEAUTIFUL!!!

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever.
I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.
So according to the movie Back to the Future Part II, by the year of our lord 2015 there are supposed to be 19 movies in the Jaws franchise. As of January 2014, there are only 4. I personally see this as an enormous travesty, which is why I’m calling on the internet to rectify this grievous mistake.
I challenge the geek community, the web community, the YouTube community, the film community, the time travel community, the hypothetical Jaws community, and the local community college to answer my call and create 15 new JAWS feature-length movies before October 21st, 2015.
According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, American Film Institute, and British Film Institute, a feature film has to be at least 40 minutes long. So even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub, it still fulfills what I am asking of you in the challenge, and it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge.
So grab your camera phones, a bucket, and that inflatable shark you bought at the dollar store, because it’s showtime. Live-action, stop-motion, puppets, pencil animation, CG, piss on film- it doesn’t matter how you create the movie! Just go and make the 2015 of Back to the Future II a reality.
Signal boost, if you please!
