Welcome to my first post in my new location!
I’d like to christen this blog by writing about something I think is very important to all of us during these times of crisis and uncertainty: Orcs.
Confession time: I’ve never read the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. So, I can definitively say I am not a fangirl of either the books or the movies. But, I am a fan. And, more importantly, I am fascinated by Orcs. Because I think they’re creepy.
Every time Mr. Slayer and I catch the trilogy on TV, I never fail to say “ORCS ARE SCARY!!!” And they are. As something of a horror aficionado, I can’t help but notice that that Orcs are very “horror-y”-looking, so, of course, I love that.
Now, I know that the LOTR trilogy was written in Ye Olde Fashioned-Y Times, so I often wonder what Mr. Tolkien himself would think if he could see his all his characters brought to life. Would he dig it? Would he be appalled (especially by the SCARY ORCS)? What say you, fangirls/boys? What do you think?
In other news, I am now obsessed with the idea of hipster porn. This sounds like a potential comedy goldmine to me. And, yes, I’m sure there will be an entry about hypothetical hipster porn on this blog sooner rather than later.
