It can be argued that the biggest internet story coming out of the premiere is not spiders and bears, but a playful behind grab caught only by TheOneRing.net cameras! During our exclusive red-carpet interview with Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch sneakily snuck up and shared a pinch and a bird with his Hobbit co-star. Animated gifs have turned up everywhere on tumblr, and even Gawker’s Jezebel says this is the greatest thing to come out of it all.

This Sunday, November 10th, at 3PM PST, TheOneRing.net Live is proud to premiere our brand new show: TORn Book Club!
Hosted by long time staffer Sarumann, this show will focus on literature and all things to do with reading and writing. While we certainly have a bias toward Tolkien, this show will not focus only on Tolkien and his works, but also on all manner of classic fantasy and science fiction. As the title implies, this will have a book club feel to it. Every month, we will choose a book for you, the viewers, to read, and we will have a discussion on the book at the end of that month. We know that our fans are voracious readers, and love to discuss what they find.
But the show isn’t just book discussions! With November being National Novel Writing Month, fans who are participating are encouraged to tune in and share your progress! Each week in November, we will be discussing the ups and downs of writing, and giving advice and pointers to the aspiring writers in the crowd.
When we can, we will also have author guests on the program to discuss their works and their experiences as writers.
We will also be announcing the monthly winners for our “Rewrite Tolkien” contest on this show!
As you can see, there is plenty to talk about, and we’re excited to bring this new show to you!
Be sure to tune in at theonering.net/live on Sunday, November 10th, at 3PM PST and join in the fun!
Ever wondered about the diverse group of individuals behind TheOneRing.net?
Well, now you can meet the talented, and oft-times crazy, volunteers, who diligently delve away in the deepest darkest caverns of Erebor to bring you TheOneRing.net.
*some of the creatures who work here are extremely shy and there is very limited information about them, beyond their names, if you’re extremely lucky you might just spot one as they scurry back into the shadows 😉 *
If you like what we do, and would like to see your Tolkien community keep growing and growing, consider making a contribution to our Pledge Drive. Every bit helps defray our costs!

The companions awoke refreshed in the last Homely House before Dragon Con. Once they gifted their gracious hosts with a bust of Mirkwood resident Legolas, they saddled up into Shadowfax and headed off into the horizon!
Twas a long ride filled with much entertaining and lore-banter via the crystal slab. They talked of the rings of power and heir respective fates, the Line of Durin and what sealed their doom, and of the secret greed of Sauruman, coveter of the One.
As the sun set below middle-earth so did they set down in the bustling metropolis of Atlanta, City of the Sweet Fruit. The company unloaded their precious cargo of outerwear and delved into the fabled convention.
