Happy birthday! Um…to Lord of the Rings, I mean. Tolkien’s masterpiece turned 63 on Saturday.
Yes, I’m a bit late (fashionably, I’d like to think) to the party. After all, wizards are never late, nor are they early. They arrive precisely when they mean to. But the same can’t be said for busy bloggers.
While reading Jenelle Schmidt’s LOTR celebration post this morning, I also learned the interesting fact that Tolkien began working on The Hobbit in 1917—100 years ago (though I probably knew that and just forgot somewhere along the way). How about that? Two birthdays for the price of one.
This post is going to take a creative approach to this Lord of the Rings birthday party. Also because I’ve already written LOTS OF LOTR POSTS on a variety of topics.
If you look at pop culture, the impact of Tolkien’s work is undeniable. Lord of the Rings in particular has given fantasy a classic epic and left its mark in numerous ways.
With that in mind, I want to celebrate our beloved LOTR fandom with a compilation of GIFs and memes, ranging from overused to hilarious. With some randomness thrown in for good measure. 😉
Because the age of orcs, elves, and men has passed into shadow. We’re now living in the Age of Visual Content.
In no particular order…
