What December 30th is Not.

On the 30th of December, this livejournal will not be supporting Talk Like Fucking Gollum Day.

In fact, this livejournal will be enjoying a Lets Ridicule Tolkien Day. Instead of trying to force a committee to give Andy Serkis an award for jumping round like a monkey in a suit and then being remade digitally with big come fuck me anime eyes (which is what the original day is in support of), I will sit here and look down upon those who are by making fun of Tolkien. I will do this because I am an unpleasant man who boils children and, most importantly, dislikes Tolkien immensely.*

So, if like me, you dread the white noise chatter of a thousand and one bad Gollum impersonations, feel free to join me in making fun at the Tolkien sacred cow.




* I have nothing against the film, so I will not be sitting around and ridiculing it.

However, I would like to point out that Andy Serkis as the digitally painted Gollum was really kind of annoying. I mean, how many times did I have to watch 'Oh look, Gollum is bad. No, he's good. No, he's against us. No, I good, no, I bad...' That shit got real tired real fucking quickly.
